production date: July 2002
This is the only SH video ever to officially win at anything but being bad. (Obviously, INSO10, 11, and 12 won at being bad and got into the Graveyard for it, but that's not the same as trying to be good in a judged contest.) The caption in question was Best Action at the 2002 iteration of CNAnime, probably due to a weak field at a young con and a new source in equal parts, but a win is a win, particularly when it punches your ticket for certain contests that at the time (and maybe even still) require you to have won a recognized award in order to compete.
Not that any award ever arrived, but hey, it's a different country and it's a good thing to keep from being/becoming award-focused. My trophies are of different kinds, and mostly can be sewn into a jacket.
