New to this? Here’s the intro.

Last week (Week 2)

The third week has come and gone, and with it the first round of average score-based bonus points has too. Plenty of points were accumulated because of that, but our internal rankings has not shifted from the previous week. Even so, there are some cool developments to check out, so take a gander at our weekly gains after the jump.

The swap here is pretty important. Yuki-chan is underperforming what a lot of people expected it to do based on the franchise alone, losing out to music club anime Hibike! Euphonium by a solid few thousand watchers and – more important, this week – an average score of 6.93. An average less than 7 on MyAnimeList? Ouch! Otherwise, everything on the team is solid, as reflected in his position here. My biggest surprise is that the most watched shows right now such as DanMachi and Owari no Seraph have average scores like that. I expected low 8’s – I guess not everyone loves Hestia!

I’ve aced every week and next week will be no different. The only thing I don’t know yet is will it be Oregairu or Hibike!. If OreGairu doesn’t go above 40k by next week I could potentially Ace every show on my active team. That would be awesome. I really wasn’t expecting people to love Owari as much as they do but I’m pleasantly surprised. Kekkai and PlaMem could prove to be dangerous so I’ll just have to keep crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Already benched Nagato Yuki because these drops would definitely hurt next week. Let’s go!

You can really see the power that the first few weeks have in the long run here – not very much! I earned more in this week alone than I did in the previous two combined, and it gets more ridiculous from there. I also finally got off my butt and threw in that Ace for Shokugeki no Souma before it passes that all-important 40000 line. I joked about Gintama‘s incredibly high score last week, but in reality the points gained from that alone aren’t really worth having it in for a couple more weeks just yet. Maybe next time.

You know a nice thing about the shows with titles that are too long to fit in Wideface’s format properly? Finding them to manually wrap is really easy – they share the word “Machigatteiru”. They also happen to be extremely high scoring shows – check out OreGairu‘s average! Of course, that is something you can reasonably expect in any given Fantasy Anime League season; for the most part. the only people who check out a sequel are people who already like the first season, right? Unfortunately for joyfullydoomed here, Punchline hasn’t been too well received in a wide sense, so its score suffers.

I don't actually approve of these long light novel titles, though.

Another surprise for me, Kekkai Sensen seems to be popular and has a decent fanbase but its average score is, well, pretty average. Maybe it is just my Twitter timeline clouding my perception there. You definitely don’t want to be Gunslinger Stratos, though – it only barely beats out Punchline in popularity there, and its watching numbers are kind of abysmal. Maybe Aldnoah.Zero‘s second season wore everyone out when it comes to Fauxrobuchi shows. Can someone please get rid of the people who keep approving these shows?

I’ll be frugal.

Universally adorable romance anime Ore Monogatari!! may not have the watching numbers I expected it to have by now, but it certainly has a nice high score. Unfortunately that doesn’t mean much right now, as it gains only a couple thousand more points through this compared to the mid-7 scored shows. The other exclamation point show, Hibike! Euphonium, is doing even worse than Ore Monogatari!! despite its roots as a slice of life show Kyoto Animation is so famous for. Perhaps it is because it is so grounded, and not very “anime”? Its humor is certainly the polar opposite of, say, last Fantasy Anime League’s strange Rollercoaster Tycoon adaptation Amagi Brilliant Park, also from KyoAni, which turned over much more satisfying numbers. Especially disappointing to me, since I picked Eupho first, and now it isn’t really performing.

At first I looked at this and was utterly confused. Why switch out Punchline for Triage X? The raunchy Xebec manga adaptation is doing worse than even the controversial MAPPA anime in both watching numbers and average score, and probably discussion too. Then I looked at the numbers themselves: Triage X is a double points show! Sure, it isn’t doing amazing numbers even with that – 46286 total points this week puts it up there with the acceptable, middling shows this season – but that is still almost a solid 10k or so above Punchline‘s 38214 points. Heck, it even outperformed Nagato Yuki-chan, even if only by about 100 points. Good call there for sure.

Triage X, a contender. Who woulda thought?

Still at the bottom, but gaining points almost as fast as the player right above him. Body switching anime Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo still seems to have not found its audience entirely, but its score is actually pretty high, just barely missing out on an 8. Going by the score, fans of fantasy ecchi anime High School DxD seem to still be liking the show, with a high average score of 8.22. In fact, NeoRevan here seems to have it the best among us in terms of average scores. Maybe that will pay off in the future.

Still in last, but now I have a full team that has been active for at least a week. My only hope is
A) DxD gets an uncensored simuldub (least likely)
B) Drops (most of my team has really low drop rates, but that could change) and
C) One person swaps out Danna and it gets 2x points (becoming the fourth highest watching points)

And that’s it for this week. Next week, we lose points for the first time.

  • −4 points for each user who has anime under “Dropped” upon week 4.

Next week is also another even week, so we will be counting all the discussion posts for points, too! I am sure all of the action and intrigue in Triage X will make it a top contender. Being a huge fan of ecchi and killing old ladies myself, I am sure I will be able to jump start that conversation.
