Late night, last night we decided that Fantasy Sports isn’t any fun without any anime. Our princess Morie first suggested this, but we have turned this into a complete idea. While most might be deciding between Adrian Peterson or Marshawn Lynch, we will be deciding on the shows airing each season. This is the first iteration of Fantasy Anime so there will be lots of kinks. Anyway, the goal is to sum up the scores on MAL on every show we picked, with the highest overall score being the winner. We are only including full new shows and returning seasons. Shorts will not be included. (Sekko Boys for shame) With that said, there were ~38 options for us, but we decided to end on 30 picked, just so the clearly and truly terrible would not be chosen.

Winter 2016, we have Krakken_Unleashed, Nomadic Dec, Protonstorm, myself Gugsy, and Kinksy and we did this in snake format. All numbers come from January 11, 2016 reviews, so blame your fellow anime viewers.

We shall watch many shows this year, but there isn’t like the schadenfreude of winning and losing in anime yet. We are happy to introduce this to all of you as the very first in anime fantasy sports. This will be updated approximately once a month because reviews don’t change as drastically. However, scores will not be officially submitted until the show is complete, so there is time to rebound/fall. This is a trial for future anime fantasy leagues, but feel free to speak your mind on the bad choices Protonstorm made :D.

The best part is that the loser has to watch an anime of the winner’s choice. No mercy. Welcome to the Hunger Anime Games
