The Hung-over Results of Animetics’ Drunken Spring 2013 Preview

A few months ago, just before the spring 2013 season started, we did a rather odd preview of the shows coming out that season, one involving fake money and real bragging rights. To find out who won (and thus who makes the odds for our upcoming summer 2013 preview) read on!

(To refresh those of you who haven’t read the previous column, Will and Sam got 800 fake-money Woolongs which they were required to bet on various happenings in spring 2013 anime, at odds adjusted by Drew. Their goal was to score a net profit.)

Will:

Grand Total: 730 Woolongs (-70)

Grand Total: 850 Woolongs (+50)

 

Drew (the house): +70-50=+20 Woolongs

So Sam is both the winner and our new oddsmaker. All things considered, none of us getting more than plus/minus 100 means this is a more-or-less even contest.

You bet we’re continuing this feature. Our summer 2013 preview will be coming out sometime next week, once he gets a chance to make the odds and I get a chance to find cheap Chardonnay.
