The Fantasy Anime League is back for its 23rd season!




Registration Deadline
Sunday, September 29th, 19:00 UTC

Please send in your FAL team before this date.




Click Here to Register
Some things have changed, so be sure to see the rules.


New to FAL?
FAL is like Fantasy Sports with an anime twist. Players form their own "team" of anime from the Fall 2019 season. Once registration is complete, everyone watches their teams collect points according to criteria like: # of users watching, # of users discussing, etc. You don't even need to watch the anime you've chosen!

If you really want to try and win the game, there are additional rules like swapping anime from your team or using wildcards and aces. However, none of this is required. If you like, you can just submit a team and do nothing else for the rest of the game.

Make sure to also join the Fantasy Anime League club for notifications on all future updates.

Does that 23 include the time that MAL died in the middle of the season, thus canceling FAL for that season?
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

Go read the rules
"sequels can be used freely in your team, but you may choose only 1 from the following list: Nanatsu no Taizai: Kamigami no Gekirin, Psycho-Pass 3, and Shokugeki no Souma: Shin no Sara. The anime Boku no Hero Academia 4th Season and Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld are special exceptions and will not be eligible to be selected as part of your team."
I had NnT on my main list and Psycho-Pass 3 on bench and i got the same message, you probably have the same problem.
well that's just my opinion.....

This seems interesting...

Can someone explain on what basis do we get the points? Like is it number of discussions posts, number or favorites, etc? And how many points for each of these?

Edit: Nvm, got everything I wanted to know from the rules thread.

Yes it would do.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

That's correct. Points are tallied every Sunday at the time indicated in the rules. That's why it is important to choose your team's starting setup wisely, when it comes to active and bench titles, and to always know which titles you've got on active and bench. It's part of the strategy.

Most eligible anime titles start during the first or second week, but on rare occasion we have titles that start during week three or later. These are ones you'd probably want to leave on your bench until the week they start airing. Bench swaps are processed before the weekly points are tallied, so you can do the bench swap any time during the week it airs. Just make sure you save your first bench swap for that. That early in the season you cannot swap more than one title every three weeks.

Registration for FAL Fall 2019 has now ended! If you missed the registration for this season, don't worry. We'll be back for another FAL season in Spring 2020. Hope to see you then!
