New to this? Here’s the intro.
Last week: Week 9

Woah! First Fantasy Anime League update of December. Time sure flies – shows are reaching their double digit episode counts, next season’s potential offerings are being perused (did you know they are making a Phantasy Star Online 2 anime, in the year of our Lord 2016?), and people are making their mandatory top shows of the year lists. We still have a solid month or so of Fantasy Anime League to sift through, though, so things continue to truck on anyway.

lostpikachu says:

All I can say is my place in this league all hangs on MAL in licenses week. Other than that, I’m in trouble.

Yep, the main issue really is that the 3000 point booster is just barely not enough to push lostpikachu over the hoard ahead of him (by less than 400 points, to be more exact). Without anything else to fall back on, and with the (effective) top 5 shows each week having not changed for over half of the season, nothing but a miracle could save lostpikachu from an awkward second place finish.

As for me, nothing has changed. Well, that’s not completely true – despite my stagnant stats, I am climbing the ranks and a really nice finish is pretty much guaranteed. It’s more about exactly where I will land come Week 14 than if I will do well in the first place, and since I haven’t been tied with anyone for a while now, there isn’t anything but a vengeful nuke keeping me from heading up.

Sestrel got an ace from Shiki-inspired anime Haikyuu!! Second Season in, perhaps on the skin of its teeth. I am having mixed feelings about the 50k rule versus the 40k from last time; I still don’t want to judge quite yet, but 50k seems like a much more difficult number to reach. If the intention behind this rule is to make it so that we can ace more often, keeping a monopoly from being an inevitability, then I see 40k as a fine benchmark.

NeoRevan says:

3,000 more people need to add Asterisk before I can really do anything. Right now I’m betting on the fact that all of my shows end in the next 2-3 weeks, and people start binge watching, which is a thing I’ve never understood, but its big it seems. Doubt it will be enough, but who knows?

Yep. The chances aren’t huge, but NeoRevan still has some potential points in his favor. Sestrel’s toast-eating anime Subete ga F ni Naru: The Perfect Insider is only eleven episodes long, for example. I haven’t done the numbers on older shows, but it could go either way in terms of a show’s performance dropping or going up once it is over. I would think, based on watching some shows perform in the past, that at the very least the average score of a show would drop as it wraps up.

As time goes on, it seems like discussion points become more and more, well, meaningless, at least when you are in a position where your team consists of only heavy-hitters. When we are getting less points at the beginning of the season, comparing something like tournament anime Gakusen Toshi Asterisk‘s 210 posts to plot-less anime Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen‘s 184 looks much more significant, but in the context of a score week where everything respectable is making 65-77k  based on score alone, discussion looks like child’s play.

Guycot says:

Glad to see myself climbing the ranks inch by inch. To aeg2138 I say beware the Booty Warrior, he always gets his mark.

Yep. Within four ranks of aeg2138 now, Guycot should be passing him in a week or two’s time – depends on how dense they are with points, of course. Now would be the time to start looking into aces, since no one wants to have their spot ruined by a small difference like that if it is preventable.

I talked about scores going down when a show is over, but I think Comet Lucifer‘s can only go up at this point, right? When it finally ends I don’t see all that many people having stuck around for that long only to give it a resounding shrug. Of course, anime fans have been known to watch worse…much worse.

And, yet again, we reach the end of the week. Here are next week’s rules.

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

Favorites and drops – one of my favorite combinations. Until next time, thanks for stopping by again.
