TOPIC - Best Hentai of 2006 Nomination Process (voting month)
Welcome to the Best Hentai of 2006 Awards.
For the past few years to date I have been running an in-house yearly awards (depending on which “house” were talking about) called The Best Of Awards. Originally started when I was working over at CWN a few years back, it is presently moved on to my new home in www. animeboredom.co.uk (2nd year running), www.popsyndicate.com (1st year) and here (also 1st year).
A few notes on each…
www.animeboredom.co.uk & www.popsyndicate.com - This year I’m introducing a new award in the Anime category, for Best PSP UMD Anime of 2006. Broken up into three categories (Best PSP UMD Mini - 2 Episodes or Movie/OAV, Best PSP UMD Maxi - 3-more Episodes and Best PSP UMD Company) this is a new selection in the awards. Also this year the Manga category sees the return of Best AmeriManga of 2006 as there is more than enough viable selections this year to warrant it’s return, as previous years lacked any breakout titles to warrant it’s appearance.
www.barebackmag.com - First time we’re doing this for an entirely Hentai slant. Awards for Best Hentai Anime and Best Hentai Manga are being voted on. However since this is a first vote it will allow abit more latitude in voting for first time out, though subsequent voting will focus on that year’s releases (next year’s Best Of will focus on titles released in 2007).
(NOTE - Due to the lack of viable availability of Hentai on the PSP UMD format, though I have seen that there is Hentai on that format though they are extremely hard to come by as not even Right Stuf International sells them, there will be no Best Hentai PSP UMD category this year.)
Nominations are simple, really, for every category given your allowed to nominate up to a maximum of three titles per category. When the year ends I’ll gather up the nominations and the top five go-getters of each category will move ahead to the final voting (January 2nd 2007 to the weekend of the Academy Awards, upon which the Best of 2006 Awards will be picked and announced (more on that later)).
For now here are the categories you’ll be voting on. Look at each and consider how you’ll want to vote (one vote/e-mail per voter please). Also remember that this is just the first year out doing the hentai awards phase so recommendations for new awards for The Best Hentai of 2007 Awards are most appreciated.

Voting Category Requests
Question - Can all of you out there find any hentai on PSP UMD format? The Japanese can have it but apparently US/Canada release of these is forbidden (evil), (though maybe Europe has access to these), but if enough people say they’re getting ahold of it and (thus) can vote on it I’ll change my mind and put up a category for it. Requests for a Best Hentai PSP UMD format category (and three nominations maximum for it) must be in by the December 12th deadline.
Next month is December 2006, and that means it’s time for my picks of The Best & Worst Hentai of 2006. Don’t let me influence you, now, it’s just my picks. Anyway that month also will see the end of the nomination process (December 12th, 2006) so make sure to nominate your choices for Best Of before the deadline. Final voting starts at the beginning of 2007.
Month 3 (January 2007) - Final Voting Begins
Month 4 (February 2007) - Voting Update
Voting Ends on Academy Award Weekend (Saturday)
Month 5 (March 2007) - ? ? ? ? (depends on when the Academy Awards is held this coming year)
Well, I’ll let you go now. See you next month for The Best & Worst Hentai of 2006 report. Bye.
