Best Anime DVD Release Award (Mania.com)

By:Chris Beveridge
Date: Tuesday, October 28, 2008

After taking a few months off from this particular event, we're getting back into the swing of things with our Best DVD Release Awards for the anime category. We had run the voting for January previously in which Kanon Vol. #1 had won the top honors, but with the chaos of release weeks that followed with ADV Films delaying titles left and right, we waited for the dust to settle a bit. That's all come clean now and we're back on track as the voting for February 2008 has ended and it was a close match between Mushishi Vol. #6 from FUNimation and the Cowboy Bebop Remix Box Set from Bandai Entertainment. In the end, the quietly beautiful Mushishi Vol. #6 took the top spot:
