Last week: Week 4

This post is very late, for very specific reasons. That is, if you follow the drama on-site at the Fantasy Anime League club on My Anime List, you’d know that the results were posted a couple days late thanks to some confusion surrounding Space Patrol Luluco’s streaming locations (relevant to this week’s scores). Those were also the days I had off. It was going to be a really on-time post, yet fate had other plans. But there are still things here!

Last week: Week 2

The first drop week brings another upset, with a certain player moving up above two others. Others find themselves gasping for air as their teams quickly run out of steam, and still others find aces in the hole continuing to shine ever brighter. I don’t know why this is getting so flowery, so I’m gonna shut up now and move on to the actual content here.

Last week: Week 2

Some ranks are shaken up this week, and the volatility of it all is exciting. This is honestly one of the most fun seasons of Fantasy Anime League we’ve played, and definitely the most potentially interesting one since we started recording them here – while our relative places are clear, just about no one is safe, as shows continue to grow and change and different stats have heavy impacts on different weeks. We even have someone in first who has never been there before!

This week’s post is uh, a little late. Again! Won’t be next time, I promise. Gotta get back in the groove of doing these. On the plus side, most of the players commenting didn’t send me their thoughts until today either, so you get some more thoughts from others than you might have otherwise, which is great because no one needs to read me ramble.

All right, on to the rambling then.

The first week of Fantasy Anime League has come. This is (basically) the one-year anniversary of me making these posts, too, which is pretty neat. I don’t even remember why I started doing them, but it’s a pretty relaxing way to spend time, so I don’t regret it. The best part is getting to expand my library of screencaps with useful lines. It’s like watching my weekly anime with two brains that have entirely different goals.

OK, I’ll stop. Time for numbers.

Here at Wideface, we have a tradition of participating in MyAnimeList’s Fantasy Anime League (FAL). If you aren’t interested in the details, it essentially boils down to a fantasy sports game like fantasy football, except instead of choosing from athletes, we choose from anime that will be airing in the upcoming season. The goal, of course, is to choose the shows we think will be the most popular, gaining points from the number of watchers, the amount of discussion around each episode, and various other factors. If you are interested in the gritty details, I have some cool links for you:

When we play together, though, we like to throw in some rules of our own, as well as consequences for losing (and awards for winning)! Every Sunday from here on out, I will be posting an update about our teams and their relative placings, as well as other details and even comments from our participants themselves.

In this post, I will be detailing our internal rules, as well as our teams as they are at the start and comments from (most of) the participants on their teams.

It’s been 14 weeks and 15 Fantasy Anime League posts, along with many others, but all good things must end. For us, that means this weekly column is over until the Spring season comes and Fantasy Anime League returns. Until then, though, we have one last week of stats to peruse as well as the final results of our internal competition, including the shows we will each be required to watch before the next Fantasy Anime League comes around.

Last week: Week 10

This week on Fantasy Anime League we enter the double digits. Also this week, I post these stats a bit later than usual. You can blame my pre-Christmas retail job and the annual 12 Days of Anime for that, but I haven’t missed a week of Fantasy Anime League yet and I don’t plan on doing so soon. Let’s roll out.
