New to this? Here’s the intro.

Last week (Week 9)

It has finally happened: after 8 long weeks, someone passed someone else. Destiny has come. A man has fallen into the depths of Unlimited Forcewatch Works, and it doesn’t look like there is any saving him, much like poor Falcon in this series of videos about hamburgers. Four weeks remain, but this is the one we are in now, so let’s talk about it.

All of the scores for lostpikachu’s shows have gone up since week 7, except for Shoukugeki no Souma. Does that indicate that the people still watching it are watching it out of obligation? Perhaps not, since it has 50 more discussion posts than the last time we checked in on the people’s favorite (?) ecchi food anime.

Meanwhile, Kyoto Animation baiting anime Hibike! Euphonium has practically doubled its discussion points since last time. Anyone watching the show probably knows why, as the uproar from a recent episode really got people going. This week’s episode might cause a similar boost in discussion, but probably not because people are happy.

If you look only right under joyfullydoomed’s entry in this week’s stats, you might think his position is pretty safe. However, that is because his true enemy is lurking one spot lower. There are only four weeks left, so he might come out unscathed, but the point gain in these last few weeks can be pretty insane. Hey, even this week everyone has a pretty huge total “New points” score. Good luck, joyfullydoomed.

Meanwhile, even when gaining these hundreds of thousands of points, Aikijou is only within thousands from Hamdog92. Heck, they are only two spots away from each other! Hanging on a thread, and next week he won’t have Gintama‘s unbelievable score points to save him.

I’ve talked about Hamdog92 already outside of his own entry, so instead let’s admire Ore Monogatari!!‘s consistency. It has lost just a bit in both score and discussion, but so little it barely even counts. That is pretty impressive for what should be a really middle-of-the-line genre piece like this Madhouse romance. How many people will be able to sit through two cour of Takeo doing crazy stunts for his first girlfriend?

And here it is – after plenty of time, NeoRevan has made the one move up that he will probably make for the rest of the game. What could have gone differently? If Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me had a couple less users? if Plastic Memories had kept the audience that it established with its emotional bomb of a first episode? If he had just given in and accepted OreGairu as his lord and savior? Probably all of the above.

On the other hand, there is essentially no saving aeg2138. He has never really been making the same caliber of points as anyone else, and he has hopefully learned his lesson about the success of ecchi shows. The real answer here is: start clearing your backlog, you’re about to get a lot more to deal with.

How many ways are there to say “this week is over, look forward to next week”? I am not sure, but I haven’t run out of them yet. If I keep doing this, I will surely entire some kind of impressionist new language tricks to keep that up, and when I do I hope you will be there for the next evolution in language. Until then, though, we can simplify things and just look at next week’s rules:

  • +75 points for each user who has favorited the anime upon week 11
  • −8 points for each user who has anime under “Dropped” upon week 11.

Drops and favorites in the same week. Fanboys vs the haters! Sounds like good fun. So, until then.
