    Back for more, are you? You just couldn't stay away from the flashy youtube videos, or the scantily clad heroines. If only you hadn't slept on all of those mechs last time, or realized too late the importance of Shonen Jump. Well, lucky you, here's a second chance. The chance to beat Chim without Nono. The chance to prove, once and for all, that watching all of that anime was not in vain. The chance to make this the greatest draft of all time. You've got the touch. You've got the power. Do it. Believe it!

    Speaking of Nono, You can check out her dominance in the first draft. Sorry, she's been cut. But the Chim returns to defend his title, And he is now the first member of the Animated Draft Hall of Fame.

    Do you have what it takes to defeat him?


    For those of you familiar with the Draft Game, feel free to skip reading the rest of this post, and just sign up. For those of you unfamiliar, we'll provide a quick synopsis of how to participate and all that jazz.

    The Participants

    There are three types of participants in this draft: The Commissioner, The Judges, and the GMs.

    The Commish: That's me! It's my job to make sure the draft runs smoothly. I take care of the draft list, randomize the draft order, call the matches, and keep track of the winners. I also have an open PM box for questions, complaints, and bad jokes. Also bribes.

    The Judges: There are three of these. It's their job to decide who wins the matches. They (sometimes) listen to arguments from GMs, and (sometimes) provide breakdowns on their reactions to picks during the drafting process. Also to take bribes.

    The GMs: That's you. There are 16 of these. It's their job to assemble a good team(or bad, it's up to you). It's also their job to send in numbers (which we'll talk about in a bit), and to "pimp" their team in the eyes of the judges.

    Assembling a Team

    The bulk of the job of a GM, and the bulk of this game, is assembling the teams. This is done, mainly, through a drafting process. Once sign-ups are finished, a draft order will be published. When it is a GM's turn to pick, they should post in this thread the character they wish to select for their team. Be warned, however, that you only have 24-hours to select a character, so it is often a good idea to send a PM to the commish with a selection or two that you would like to make if your turn to pick is coming up soon and you might not be on. If your time expires, you will be "bumped" to the end of the round. If you are bumped twice during the process, you can be removed from the game.

    The draft order is reversed at the end of each round. So, if it begins this way:

    Team A
    Team B
    Team C
    Team D

    Then the next round, it will go

    Team D
    Team C
    Team B
    Team A

    And, we do that for ten rounds.

    The other ways to fill rosters for teams is through free agency and trades. Free agency occurs only in periods specified by the commish. During these times, you post in the thread a player you are dropping from your team, and a player you are dropping from the available list. To complete a trade, two GMs must agree to the deal, and then both must PM the commish for approval. If the trade is approved, the Commish will post so in the thread. Trades must be x-for-x character in terms of draft picks and characters (i.e. no 3-for-2 trades or anything of the like are allowed, also, there must be at least one character being traded. You may trade a character for a draft pick, for example, but you may not trade a draft pick for another draft pick).

    Competing

    Once the draft is complete, if 16 GMs sign up, the teams will be divided into two conferences. The teams in these conferences will play round robin, with the top teams advancing to the playoffs. The playoffs then continue in single-elimination until a champion is crowned. If only 12 GMs sign up, we'll play a double elimination tournament, with losing teams getting dropped out aft

    The Kitchenware Draft is coming up soon. You should give it a shot, should be pretty interesting. I'm dying to see the whisk go head to head with the tubberware container.

    The spatula and pizza cutter should be top 5 picks. IMO.

    I heard the Ginzu knife wasn't draftable...

    Too powerful?

    I think The Yak should be in the animated draft hall of fame. He never hesitated to make the tough call. He was flamboyant, charismatic, decisive, courageous and exemplary. Put that guy in there, 1st-ballot!

    I imagine because Tyi is sleeping.


    Look, we had a good run. Some might even say great, but the run is over. I mean, there's only so far you can take it.
