New to this? Here’s the intro.

Last week (Week 10)

Welcome back. The drops this week are pretty crazy – it seems like a lot of people have finally decided what to cull from their watching lists as the end of the season approaches. I guess it is the time of year where people realize what they really are or aren’t going to get around to eventually. Weak, if you ask me, but that is the way the anime cookie crumbles. Let’s get on with it.

Or whatever time it is where you are right now

It really speaks to something’s popularity when it is the most-watched show of the season yet isn’t the most-dropped show. DanMachi holds that title right now, keeping probably as many  viewers as it possibly could while attracting as much attention as it did. Personally, I think they really missed an opportunity by giving the show only one cour, but I guess that just means we can await an announcement sooner rather than later, right?

Even more rare? Sequels that manage to disappoint almost no one one, and in fact go on to impress even further than the original. Such is the success that is OreGairu Zoku, with essentially no drops and – get this – the single most favorites of any shows this season. Even beating Gintama! Maybe those Gintama fans just don’t have enough room to favorite this one. Screenshot_42

If you had asked me to guess, I would have told you MAPPA’s experimental and kind of hard to follow anime Punchline would be the most dropped show around this time of Fantasy Anime League. Yet, here I stand, wrong again. It is actually the third highest dropped show, if you can believe it. Can you guess what the two shows higher than it are?

None of us have it, but Ace of the Diamond 2nd Season is the lowest dropped show not counting the shows that just never came out; 56 people decided they don’t need to watch any more of those dang high schoolers playing with dang baseballs. Of course, that is a sequel to a show that ran for more than a year. Still, 222 people are done with Gintama now, roughly 250 episodes, a handful of OVAs, and a couple movies later. I guess you have to give up eventually, but I don’t know if I could bring myself to stop something I’d invested that much of my time in.

Hamdog92 made a couple of smart decisions this week. First, he swapped out the grand but hardly animated Arslan Senki for late bloomer Yamada-kun, which granted him a really good boost in just about every category. Second, he aced yellow ribbon catastrophe Hibike! Euphonium as each of his other shows finally passed their 40k marks. Despite this, it seems drops and a lack of high favorite shows has still prevented him from surpassing Aikijou above him, whose shows perform remarkably in those areas. Maybe next time.

Most reasonable shows have at least 1000 drops and usually more, but Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo hasn’t quite crossed that despite having defined itself as a completely competent pick. Part of this can, of course, be attributed to how surprisingly welcoming it is to most audiences, especially given its psuedo-harem premise. I think a large part of it, though, is that it was just about the last show to start airing, preventing it from gathering the crowd of viewers who will try and then drop everything in those first couple weeks.

That’s right, Triage X – more people have dropped even supernatural slice of life anime Re-Kan than have dropped you! Congrats. Oh yeah, I also promised to tell you the two highest dropped shows right now. In second place comes Urobuchi abortion anime Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, which failed to even construct a reasonable plot let alone a solid fanbase. Even surpassing it, though, and the only show to break 4000 drops, is Great Teacher Onizuka-wannabe Ultimate Otaku Teacher Denpa Kyoushi. Even in Japan, it is in one of the most popular timeslots for anime (the same one Magic Kaito 1412 was in last season) but it is reaching historic lows in that slot, even to the detriment of the ever-popular Detective Conan after it. I suppose people aren’t even willing to sit through Denpa Kyoushi to get to their favorite shota detective. Screenshot_44


Unless I am mistaken, there are actually no extra rules next week, aside from the typical discussion points counted on even weeks. Will that be enough points for Hamdog92 to surpass Aikijou? Doubt it, but I am wrong most of the time anyway, right? So, look forward to next week as your favorite shows wrap up – what are you going to miss next season? Personally, I’m not really looking forward to not getting Houkago no Pleiades every Wednesday. Wait, did I say that out loud? Screenshot_41
