I think it's already clear what the first strong contender for AOTS is.
>a setting with potential for both funny/interesting one-shots and character development
>Best girl of the season
>EVERYBODY, PUT YOUR HANDS UP
Makes me think of Pet Shop of Horrors. What other series could fill that mold?
It does have a lot of potential, but I'll keep my expectations low for the moment. It could become repetitive and boring pretty fast. We already know we're going to get 7 episodes about games, maybe 8 if they decide to split the last one in two episodes or 9 if we get another pool game, which leaves 2 or 3 episodes for filler/character development/fanservice. That is if they keep it episodic like Death Billards and the first episode, of course, but the show seems to be made for this format.
