Awards Already Given Out
In the already awarded categories, where awards were given out for stand out products…
Icarus Publishing won an award for Best Hentai Anthology Magazine Publication for it’s monthly anthology book
The creators of Small Favors won an award for Best Lesbian Erotica Series
The creators of BOUNCE PSP UMD for the PSP won an award for Best Hentai for a handheld… mostly because to date it is the ONLY true Hentai content product available right now and released on the PSP that isn’t a hard to find import from Japan that only a few stores carry so, well, it had no competition.
Hopefully 2007 will change all that because I’d hate to think BOUNCE will get the same award year after year for being the only available hentai on the PSP.
Playboy : The Mansion, by the way, won the award for Best Hentai on a console… again, mostly due to incredible slim pickings and no lack of censorship will make Leisure Suit Larry : Magna Cum Laude anymore playable than it was censored like all get out.
No Best Hentai on the PC award since there is actually Hentai on the PC and it would take forever just to mull through it and pick one without the “votes” of you the readers… sorry.
La Blue Girl mainman for Most Recommended Hentai Anime/Manga Series
Sorry if your favorites didn’t make the cut, but then again everyone had a chance to vote and most of you passed it up so, as the Hawaiians would say “No Vote No Bitch”… really, I’ve seen the bumper stickers! Real bumper sticker (post Elections 2006).
Next Month? Well it’s the duldrums between voting and final awards, and I was going to leave it with just the topic of the upcoming Academy Awards and the Best Animated Feature Award of 2006 at the Academy, but then G4 went off and did a show on the Adult Entertainment Expo in January and... well... what the hell! G4 DOES know that an "Adult Entertainment" Expo where all the sex content is blocked out with large black boxes and footage censorship is about as pointless as an apple pie without apple... right? Well I'll talk that up with you next month, and maybe talk about the pointlessness of an Adult Entertainment Expo shown without the Adult Entertainment (or at least the illusion of it).
That’s that. Now you have until the weekend of the Academy Awards to vote so get to it!
And remember! “No Vote No Bitch”… OK? OK. Get to it now.
