New to this? Here’s the intro.

Last week (Week 8)

Nothing too exciting to be found this week. It is just watching numbers counting this time around, not even discussion. The special event this time around is that we can now start using wildcards, but none of us did, so there isn’t any of that. Even so, my duty to report these updates post a lot of numbers, and collect amusing screencaps compels me to soldier on, even in the increasingly hot weather that comes with the season.

=> 279148

Family values anime DanMachi‘s popularity is astounding. Simply astounding. Every week the gap between it and the also very popular vampire killing anime Owari no Seraph seems to grow larger and larger. I am truly jealous of everyone with the foresight to have picked it.

=> 244065

Slavery-condemning anime Arslan Senki is getting close to 40k watchers, so I may yet be able to ace Hibike! Euphonium. I also really doubt I will be using any of the more tricky wildcards like the extra swap, so I guess I should just use the boost. Not really in any hurry, though, since it doesn’t get worse with time like the nuke.

The most interesting part of these here numbers is that panty party potpourri Punchline has been gaining some steam recently thanks to its new developments. To joyfullydoomed, that means a potential new ace just may be in the works for him in the future, and every point counts when those final few hectic weeks bring in the crazy points. Anyone remember No Game No Life?

The FAL mantra.

The FAL mantra.

Team: Aikijou
New points: 210820

Man, Aikijou is right there next to Hamdog92 in the rankings, which is really cool. Maybe they’ll even be able to nuke each other soon – I wouldn’t be too surprised. Unfortunately it probably won’t end well for him or aeg2138, but Aikijou has an ace in the hole with shounen parody anime Gintama, as its final few average score points might just rocket him ahead. That would really be a miracle though.

Meanwhile, in second place.

Team: Hamdog92
New points: 220323
All points: 2148877

- Watching: 49749
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku
- Watching: 52382
=> 220323

Has Hamdog92 aced Arslan Senki yet? If he has, he’s in the same boat as me when it comes to a newfound ace in emotional rollercoaster anime Hibike! Euphonium, and if he hasn’t he should soon. Hint hint.

Don’t thank me.

Team: aeg2138

Poor guy didn’t even break 200k in new points this week. I mean, it is a slow week, but still. The hopes of not being surpassed by NeoRevan grow more faint with each passing week for aeg2138 and his ill-fated choices, as even jiggly heaven anime Triage X‘s double points can’t save him now. Not that they ever would have, I suppose, but it was looking good for a while there.

Ace: Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (TV): 3000

Only within 10k of aeg2138 above him. 10k! I bet if there were also discussion points or something, he would have passed him already, but there was no such luck this time. Also, befitting his rebel nature, NeoRevan managed to sneak in an ace for witch hunting anime Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (not to be confused with witch hunting anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica or witch hunting anime Witch Hunter Robin) before it crossed that 40k barrier. Assuming things go well, he should ace that show with the unfortunate number of active teams soon, too.

I kind of brought this up earlier, but next week we will be looking at another round of average score points, as follows:

  • +9000*((un)weighted score) points for score ratings on MAL upon week 10.

Lots of points to be had there, and the gap between shows should be larger than before. And that wraps it up once again. Sorry this post was a little late this week, I meant to write it on Sunday but stuff happened. One day I will reach that goal. One day.
