The Fantasy Anime League is back for its 24th season!




Registration Deadline
Sunday, March 29th, 18:00 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 Spring 2020 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.

Look like something new to try! And I’ll probably do better on it then I am with the Anime challenge where I’ve only watch a 5 second anime.

Copy pasting from FAL thread.

Well I still cannot register at all. Now the problem is that either it is invalid or the page just unresponsive.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

I can't reproduce the issue as I'm able to check my team after registering. Could you give me some more information about what went wrong?

Edit: I just tested the site with your username (bypassed auth with admin powers) and it shows your team correctly for me. Could you try again? Maybe try in a second browser or Incognito in case it cached an older version of the website.

I wish there was one of these for predicting the absolute worst stuff of the season too. I seem pretty good at doing that.

@kuuderes_shadow is doing that every FAL season. You can challenge him for that title.

I'm toying with the idea of doing something else this time. But I will probably end up just going for last again.
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.

How about being right in the middle?! Just thinking about it blew my mind

@kuuderes_shadow, no thanks! Though I picked just the most popular ones for this FAL and probably I wouldn't be even in top 100.

Blacklisted due to popularity https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1830003#msg59386010
For future references to everyone also wondering, anime's that are not listed are usually explained in the rules section

Most of the time when you are copying the code it didn't register if you are copying as it is. Since there are space at the end of the code (example: astvdajtav(space) like this) only after you delete that at the end that the code are registered.

You cannot have Souma and Fruit Basket at the same team. You have to choose one over other. That's in the rules.

@AlexTheRiot

Looks like it was overlooked because it is not listed on MAL's Spring 2020 page unless you apply the 'kids' filter. Usually I cross-reference with Anichart but we didn't have as much room for vetting this time around. Usually, we exclude kids shows, but with member counts over 10k it definitely deserves a look. It may not be workable to add it in now but I'll look into it.

any specific reason for that? or is it not really important enough to explain

Dunno I never really think that much about that. Always think it is mean to function that way.

Every team consists of an active team and a bench. Out of these two groups, the active team is the only part of the team that actually gives you points. The bench does not give you any points.
