Changes since Spring 2022
  • Score coefficients have been modified to try and readjust point distributions back toward the ideal.
  • This includes boosting Aces from 20,000 to 75,000 due to an error found in my spreadsheet orz

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~

first one I'm doing, and I can't wait!



I can't understand why people can't go on just being ordinary to each other even if they're in love.
thanks @pompeo!

I think I'm going to skip it this time around as Fall 2022 is stacked and I might be going out of town next month.

Plus half of the anime I'm watching next season is going to be blacklisted, so its difficult for me to make a team.

Ditto. I was shocked at how well I did considering the one before. I'm excited to see how well (or badly) I do this time.

You can just pick the team in one go and be done with it or just come to talk about that when you going back, it's still good, rather than just skip it.

Tip for newcomers:
Check the start date for each show when selecting your starter team.
If a show has not aired the first week of scoring, it simply gets zero points, so keep it on the bench until it has aired.

Ok. I made up my mind decided to participate FAL for Fall 2022 after putting a team together today. I just hope things won't go sideways with production issues that lead to delays.

Idk... it seems fairly popular in Japan but DIY has more traction here on MAL

Just a quick general question, but will shows listed as starting on October 9th score points in week one for sure? Thought there might be some possible time zone situation where points could be counted before a show actually airs or something and was curious before I decided what shows to start off on the bench.

i say go for Bocchi The Rock its made by cloverworks and they have a hit or miss track record so youre going for a 50/50 chance of it being really popular

Even though I chose very carefully and go through all anime, even those with low member count, I'm not very good at this.
For Fall 2021 my ranking was 11195 and for Spring 2022 my ranking was 1538, which was a lot better...^^ For the Fall 2022,
4 of 5 of my active picks were in the top 10, while those in my bench were all ranked low. While in Spring 2022, all five of my
active team were in the top ten, and once again my bench picks ended up being ranked low at +10. I think my problem is
using my swaps, aces and wildcard too early. >< But aces have to be early for the popular anime or it'll surpass the 85,000
members threshold.

I've picked 3 of my 5 anime for my active team, but I'm still hesitating for the last two and the 3 anime for bench.
This is my 3rd try and I've come to realize a lot of the anime I watch is ranked low....xD.

Well, let's see how my 3rd try will go. (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜

Definitely Bocci the Rock. As interested as I am in DIY, Bocci is being made by Cloverworks and will likely overlap with the interest of the Spy x Family crowd with it being made by the same studio and being similar in concept by its description. DIY looks good, but is being made by Pine Jam, who doesn't that much name recognition or the greatest track record of adaptations. If you're still conflicted, you could always run with Bocci and save a bench spot for DIY just in case it ends up popping off.

I just realized something about 'Fumetsu no Anata e' ......the air date isn't until the 23rd.....
Doesn't that mean the points probably won't count for the first month....? o.o
Now I'm not sure if I should pick that or Blue Lock. ( ̄_ ̄|||)

two weeks and little point' at three week only actually. You can still pick it if your sixth sense telling blue lock flop so fumetsu will be the winner of the restriction race. I actually take the wild guess and pick it because of the Ace change reason honestly.

The Ace change? Will that make a big difference?
Now that I see it, you're right. It's actually 2 weeks.

Hi! Are we going to get the Week 1 reminder and discussion thread? I noticed you always used to post them on Fridays, so just wondering if we should do it on our own or if you're gonna put it up later. I was looking forward to seeing people talk about it! :)

Edit: I noticed the dates are a bit weird - in April you posted the threads on Fridays, but later you started posting them on Sundays (or Sat), however usually once per month it'd get posted on a Wednesday - is there a schedule behind it, like once a month you couldn't put it up later, so that's why it got posted on a Wednesday?
