New to this? Here’s the intro.

Last week (Week 3)

The first drop week has come and it seems everyone has come out of it mostly unscathed. Discussion is still a really strong place to get points from this early in the season, when everyone is still optimistic and talky, after all. Just like last week our positions have stayed largely the same; the more interesting part being seeing who is accelerating faster than others. For example, I am not accelerating fast enough to catch up to first place right now, and that is maddening. I will cheer up by watching this video of Obama thanking Japan for anime and manga.

cheers

The price of popularity is that more people will have watched and dropped your show, and we can see that pretty clearly here. Shows like Owari no Seraph have a clear audience, which is why it is such a hit in the Watching numbers, but that attention brings it to the eyes of plenty of people for whom this is not a good fit. The same is true, of course, of meme status DanMachi and unapologetically shounen Shokugeki no Souma.

Funny story, this week’s ace potential was the topic of much conversation. OreGairu Zoku was on the cusp of 40k Watching numbers, coincidentally at the same time that it was finally up as a reasonable ace. Unfortunately for many, it just barely crossed that threshold at around the end of the week, changing plans for lots of people. Personally I ended up having to go with Arslan Senki, even though I wanted to ace the geopolitical fantasy show next week ideally. It would be pretty nice if Arslan Senki crossed 40k at some point too, allowing me to ace low key music drama Hibike! Euphonium. The time for my domination has come, right?

joyfullydoomed here was in the same boat, ending up being able to ace adult comedy Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me, which is somehow doing better than oddball Rubik’s Cube anime Punchline. It must be those drops, really – look at how many people just can’t stand a panty shot or five! The writer has said to stick around until episode 6, so I suppose we can continue to have faith that Punchline is a mystery anime.

Aikijou had a busy week. Intending to shake off the drop points, or get rid of a largely disappointing show, or both, he has swapped out Fauxrobuchi anime Gunslinger Stratos in favor of fan favorite Gintama. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say, but he really should have done this last week – Gintama‘s average score is absolutely ridiculous (it’s already the third highest rated show in MyAnimeList, and its score has only gone up since I last checked!), and it outperformed Gunslinger Stratos last week as well. But isn’t Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me the real winnder here? Even less drops than Gintama somehow! Being a sequel and a short probably helps.

Drops hit Kekkai Sensen hard. It is really surprising to me how many people just aren’t into Rie Matsumoto’s New York action romp. It is stylish, has an engaging ensemble cast, and is actually funny when it wants to be. How many anime can you say are legitimately funny? Well, this is kind of a funny season – we also have the cute otaku couple and an adorable threesome helping our moods weekly, after all. Of course, Kekkai Sensen‘s disappointing drop numbers aren’t the worst plot twist I have experienced this week.

cheers

Truly tragic drop numbers here too, but at least I am not as invested in these shows. We still have Kekkai Sensen here, but he also has two shows doing even worse in that area. Haruhi fans dropped Nagato Yuki-chan at the onset, while Nagato fans are growing increasingly frustrated as, ironically, Haruhi manages to accidentally steal the show. Triage X is unabashedly trashy, so much so that I am surprised that many people even bothered starting something I am sure they knew they wouldn’t like.

NeoRevan may take up the rear of the pack once again, but he made out the best in terms of drop numbers. Also makes a nice period on my “popularity = drops” point: having less watched shows means you have less dropped shows! His only big hit is the divisive sentimental comedy Plastic Memories. I can totally see where these drops come from though – plenty of people have been pretty offput by the humor in what is otherwise a pretty grounded story (emotionally, anyway). Everything else here seems to have gathered its target audience without much fuss.


And that is the roundup for this past week of Fantasy Anime League. Next week: Favorites!

+25 points for each user who has favorited the anime upon week 5.

I don’t know what kind of person adds a show to their favorites this early into the season, but I imagine the bias here will go to sequels, since people already know they like the franchise. Like it a lot. Favorites are a big deal!

cheers
