The Kamen Rider Ex-Aid DX Gamer Driver will be awarded the Hit Sales Award at the tenth annual Japan Toy Grand Prize. 


Bandai’s Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Transformation Belt DX Gamer Driver was chosen for the “Hit Sales Award”.  This award is given to toys that led in domestic sales during the Japanese fiscal year. The Kamen Rider DX Transformation Belts have won this award consecutively from 2011 to 2013 with the Fourze Driver, WizarDriver, and Sengoku Driver, then losing the award in 2014 to Yokai Watch‘s DX Yokai Watch Zero Type. Kamen Rider once again won the award in 2015 with the DX Ghost Driver.

The Japan Toy Grand Prize began in 2008 by the Japan Toy Association to award the top toys in Japan and promote the revitalization of the toy industry.  Japan Toy Grand Prize 2017 will award the most popular toys among consumers for 2016.

    Sorry, but this is a very confusing article. It’s not entirely clear what these awards are meant to be. I’m guessing it’s probably safe to assume “Hit Sales Award” is the name of the award given to Ex-Aid. And this line “This award is given to toys that led in domestic sales during the Japanese fiscal year.” explains why Ex-Aid got such an award.

    But then “This year 335 entries from 42 companies were submitted, with Takara Tomy’s Beyblade Burst winning the boys’ toy category, Agatsuma’s Love Ami Bonbon Maker winning for the girls toy category, and Bandai’s FORMANIA EX Nu Gundam winning for the “High target” category for adults.” this paragraph leaves me completely confused. What are you saying here. What are these toys winning and why? Why not Ex-Aid if it “led in domestic sales”?
