Can you predict the #AOTS?


Fantasy Anime League (FAL) is like Fantasy Sports with an anime twist. Players form their own "team" of anime from the Spring 2022 season, which 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!

Compete against your friends and other community members to see who has the best prediction power (or luck!) to come out on top.
  • All players will receive an exclusive FAL Spring 2022 badge on their profile
  • Top 10 will receive 1 year free MAL Supporter
  • Top 3 will receive MAL hoodies!


Get weekly reminders before swaps and aces are due by joining:
  • MAL Discord - After following the #how-to-verify instructions, go to #bot-spam (under Miscellaneous) and type ?join FAL.
  • FAL Club - Click "Join Club" under the image.


Changes since Fall 2021
  • We have reduced the game from 14 weeks to 13 weeks. This was done to avoid a boring first week and test for every-season games.
  • Score coefficients have been modified to try and readjust point distributions back towards the ideal.
  • We wanted to add more wildcards this season, but unfortunately didn't have the resources to do so.

Please spread the word of FAL and get your friends to join!
If the game continues to grow, we can devote more resources to making it better and better. Thank you, and have fun~

Cool, I've been waiting for this to start since the end of the last one.

I do hope I can do better than I did last time though. I'll have to choose more carefully.

Nice. I've been waiting for this event to start back up and I'm looking forward to it


I also really love the idea of being able to choose only one out of the three "somewhat popular" ones and I feel it's going to be a game changer and make stuff more interesting

The previous season was my absolute worst ever in the history of this game. Definitely hoping to do better this time.

I still can't believe I peaked as high as 11th place last time, considering how bad my team was in the end, lol

Fingers crossed that I pass that peak this time and can maintain it for more than 1 week XD
Stone Ocean has the best ending of any anime/manga. Change my mind

I've been waiting for this to come out. FAL Fall 2021 was when badges were introduced so I was disappointed when that MAL game passed away and I couldn't get the badge. Wanted to get the FAL Spring 2022 badge, I signed up and this MAL game looks quite fun :)

It's crazy how far FAL has come. I only took part in the very first one, when everything behind the scenes was still being done manually.

It's so easy to register teams now. I'm not confident in my choices, so I think I'll just take a few risks and have fun.

Yeah more badge always welcome xd.
Previous season was so bad after i choose wrong with worlds end harem, and a few certain wrong things later. Though, this fal spring season can be a tough one too, i'd say. So lets pray your luck paid you well in the end, folks xd.
Hide and seek is the best offline games on this fatamorgana-called-world-thing. Please comment nicely. I am newbie here.

Are we really predicting the AOTS if Kaguya, Spy Family and Shield hero are all banned? ;)
Would have been fun to include them in a separate bracket or something. I'm actually not sure which one will come out on top because Spy Family is an amazing manga, but I'm pretty sure Kaguya will top the scoreboard this season, season 1 and 2 were both absolutely amazing and I have high hopes for S3.

This is a super fun little competition though, and the rules and scoring seem highly advanced! Gonna take some time to look at all the options, but I'll probably just go with my personal favorites and pray for their success!

Yes, they're all important things as well... But the most important thing is responsibility for your own actions.

It's easy to pick top 5 most anticipated anime to be placed somewhere in top ranking, how about hiding 'members' numbers and just sorting by name? Of course people would still be able to look them up on site. I feel it might be somehow more diverse than just people tossing in the top and thus making more creative lists. Anyway I picked my black horse and hope it'll run to the top! Thanks for hosting another event :)

If you have your team listed right at the top and it has "Change My Team" below it you're registered.

Well, the firsts by members now doens't mean that will be the firsts 5 in the end. This year also you can choose only one out of three from komi, kawaii dake and date a live IV, so that choise is very important!

I think that there will be some surprises, let's see!

Oh wait, so if an anime in your "active" group doesn't air until next week, you get 0 points the first week?

If you ace an anime that will actually net you the second most amount of points (because you've already aced the number one previously), does that count as acing the correct anime, or should you then not ace any?
