It's been another great year for Gunpla, with two new Hi-Resolution additions, the newly designed G40 kit, and plenty of new HG kits from the newest anime series, "Build Divers Re:RISE." But the fans have spoken! While each category may have good candidates, the RG Nu Gundam topped them all with its impressive detail, dynamic posing options, and so much more. We can't wait to see what 2020 has to offer!

Game of Thrones

Kamen Rider Zero-One

Games

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Resident Evil 2

Whether you're in to sci-fi, action, fantasy, or just want to wander around town honking at people and causing mischief, there was something for everyone this year in the entertainment world! "Star Wars" may not have taken the top movie spot, but we hear you and feel you on that "Fallen Order" and "Mandalorian" love. (We just wish this series would've been available in Japan sooner!) Meanwhile, "Avengers: Endgame" easily took the lead in movies, and "Fire Emblem: Three Houses" proved to be one of the strongest games in the series for a long time. Here's to another year of epic movies, series, and games to come!

2019 was one of the best year's for anime in recent memory, with a new twist on the isekai genre with "The Rising of the Shield Hero," epic new seasons of some of our favorite shows like "Mob Psycho 100," and "My Hero Academia," and new hit manga adaptations like "Beastars," and "Vinland Saga," too. But this year, it looks like the new rising star of the anime world is "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" with its high quality animation from ufotable, it's endearing characters, and more. We look forward to seeing the movie next year and (hopefully) a second season, too!
