First Round of Voting for The 2015 Arama! Japan Awards

Hello, Arama! Japan readers! We are excited to announced that we are having our first awards show! The 2015 Arama! Japan Awards will be honoring the best in music, movies, television, anime, manga, video games, 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 in again. 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, 2014 – November 30, 2015. 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 certain category, feel free to skip it.

The voting form is after the jump!

      Do we count LDH groups as Pop or Idol?

      • Since they don’t want to be called idols, they won’t, for this year at least.

        • FrozenLand

          Opps. I filled them in idol category.

    • Ryusei

      I hope AAA counts as idol act cause I just filled the idol ones with AAA stuff

      • They would go in the pop category.

        • Ryusei


          • It’s fine. We’ll figure something out.

      • yacchaitai

        • Ryusei

          well idk I once asked someone here if they could be considered idols and they said yes i dont remember who. I don’t consider them idols either.. just had to put them somewhere lol I didn’t wanna exclude them in this successful year

    • Maknae

    • chu

      • tm

        Before it wasn’t that hard to think about the best albums thingy, but now I was like, “OH MY GOD I ONLY LISTEN PROPERLY TO _genic” lol

    • Ztf

      I think the biggest flop was Music station attemp of best songs

    • FrozenLand

      A pity there isn’t a category for Best Drama/Movie Soundtrack because the OST truly make or break the watching experience to me.

    • I didn’t know anything. So many blanks.
