Hello, Arama! Japan readers! We are excited to announce that we are having our third annual awards show! The 2017 Arama! Japan Awards will be honoring the best in music, movies, television, anime, manga, and more this coming January! And the winners of these awards will be selected by you, the Arama! Japan readers!

The first step of this awards show is figuring out who will be nominated. That is where you guys come! Since you guys are picking the winners, you should also be picking who is in the running to win. We are asking that you fill out a survey, telling us your faves in various categories during the period of December 1, 2016 – November 30, 2017. Voting during this round will be open for a week starting now, with the final nominees to be announced a few days later. Voting for the final round will commence after the announcement of the final nominees. Voting in every category is not mandatory. If you don’t want to vote in a certain category, feel free to skip it.

      And judging from the previous two years’ awards… here comes the horde of Arashi fans swarming both nominations and votes! Stay gold y’all

        Can’t wait for all the butthurt over a popularity contest on the internet!

          ohhhh, going out on a limb here but….
          The most popular answer in “Flop of the year” will contain the numbers 48 and/or 46.
          I also suspect Twice/BTS will be a common answer there too.

            I’ll be sure to bust out my tiny violin for them.

        tbh, I can potentially see K-Pop stans showing up in the poll this year considering how they’re increasingly noticing Arama and showing up in the comments for K-Pop acts. It’s already happened with this week’s weekly review poll with BTS winning by a landslide with unusually high numbers compared to typical review polls.

          their faves aren’t good enough to win real awards so they brigade random polls

          Hell hath no fury like ARMYs,
          There is no better organized, loyal, and vicious group of fans in the English speaking part of the internet.

          • losers game

            They’re legitimately worse than Arashi fans, and that’s a sentence I never thought I’d get to say.

        • KPop acts are ineligible.

        • Mela

          Hikki vs BTS? like seriously…I’m sorry for my queen tbh

      • Don’t guilt trip me pls.

    • CyDo

      I predict Arashi will win!!
      No prize for predicting that, huh?

    • It’s that time of the year again! :D

    • Liokt

      Can I assume that Suchmos is an urban act?

    • GUEST

      A fan of 48 / 46 group but have to accept the reality that they will not manage to win this. Also Mizuki Nana big fan here and the fact that people will not vote for her also high. So, i will go with ARASHI.

    • im not gonna vote. just wanna see how this pans out.
