Oops, did I skip a week again? My bad – it kind of slipped my mind to do a writeup last week as I was too excited about getting closer to a new job and seeing the wonderful(ly bad) Turquoise Jeep live in DC for the second time. And what a time it was! I won’t go into detail since they are about the farthest you can get from anime and nerdy stats, but rest assured it was worth walking back and forth across the streets of DC for.

Oh, yeah. Fantasy Anime League. Let’s get to that.

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku: 10000 
=> 50000

Once upon a time, license points weren’t such a given. However, we live in a time when companies like Sentai Filmworks get the home video licenses before a show has even aired, and now companies like Funimation are joining production committees for new anime (not that companies haven’t done that in the past).

So – like I said above – we end up with situations like this, where everything is licensed as long as it is even has a small chance of being a reasonable release in the West. I wouldn’t say any of these shows would be huge hits over here on home video, except for maybe Owari no Seraph, but hey, from a consumer’s point of view it just means if you like something that is airing right now you’ll probably be able to buy it in half a year or so.

Of course, not absolutely everything gets licensed. Take, for example, our beloved, awkward marriage anime Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me. I know plenty of people who love this show, but it’s a short, at about 5 minutes per episode, so even a whole season of the show would only constitute 60 minutes or so of content. That’s not even the length of most kids movies. The only way I can see most companies justifying this is when the short has a ridiculous fanbase or a ridiculous number of episodes to put in one release.

Team: Aikijou

On the hilariously extreme opposite side of that spectrum are extremely long anime without established fanbases in the West. Case in point: Gintama. Viz cancelled the manga 23 volumes in, and Sentai tried releasing the humongous historical comedy anime, but only made it 49 episodes in and haven’t had a new release since 2011, so I think we can just forget about getting more for a long time (never say never, though).

On a more directly Fantasy Anime League-related note, if you look up at the individual ranks (they are easy to skip!), you’ll notice Hamdog92 and Aikijou are actually right next to each other in the ranks. Like, literally, right there. Unless one of them forgets, they will be nuking each other, leading to a net wash, but if one of them forgets that would be a pretty nice advantage in this last round.

I’m personally kind of surprised that super power swapping anime Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo hasn’t been licensed. It’s pretty popular among the people I know who have watched it, and so is the manga on Crunchyroll. Heck, Crunchyroll even brought mangaka Miki Yoshikawa as a special guest to Anime Expo this weekend. Maybe, just like its start date, it is just a late bloomer.

And so, for the second to last time this season, those are your Fantasy Anime League updates and bonus meandering commentary on whatever came to mind while I was staring at numbers. Next week is the final week, and the rules are:

  • +12000*((un)weighted score) points for score ratings on MAL at the end of the FAL season (week 14).
  • −10 points for each user who has anime under “Dropped” at the end of the FAL season (week 14).
  • +75 points for each user who has favorited the anime upon week 11 and at the end of the FAL season (week 14).

Basically, a super-powered combined version of all the normal weeks before it. Good luck everyone.
