Yesterday night, Crunchyroll hosted its 8th Anime Awards in Tokyo. The event invited globally renowned celebrities and creators to present each of the winning categories. Among the list of presenters, Megan Thee Stallion was tasked with revealing the most anticipated “Anime of the Year” awards. The award went to Jujutsu Kaisen Season Two, which swept multiple accolades including Best Action, Best Character Design, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Opening Sequence, and Best Ending Sequence.

While the main focus of the night was the awards ceremony itself, a particular spotlight was also directed onto Megan Thee Stallion, who sported a custom-made outfit that referenced one of her favorite anime characters: Bruno Bucciarati from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. The three-time Grammy-winning recording artist brought her twist but also retained the most quintessential elements of Bucciarati’s signature look — the slick bob cut, plunging lace bodice, zipper detailing, and allover- motif pattern.

Megan Thee Stallion is never shy when it comes to professing her love for anime. Aside from showing her her anime-inspired manicure on her Instagram, she also channeled My Hero Academia’s Todoroki in a magazine cover shoot she did with Paper back in 2019. Recently, Megan Thee Stallion also showcased her Satoru Gojo-inspired outfit on her Instagram.

At the Orange Carpet before the ceremony, she also told Crunchyroll that her absolute go-to comfort anime is Yu Yu Hakusho and that her favorite anime genre is action, “As soon as an anime comes on, I wanna see the city getting torn up like the city needs to be destroyed on the first go. I need to understand why you’re mad, what is the character development story, and what are we going through. Take me on a ride with you.”
