As I've posted in the season preview episode thread, sumo wrestling is a very interesting spectator sport to me. So I do want to give Hinomaru Sumo a shot to see how they portray it. I just hope the story won't turn me off; for a 2-cour, that could become a problem.

Allow me to nitpick for a second: I don't think Sword Art Online 3 can have a cliffhanger ending when it hasn't ended yet :P. I'm guessing it has been mapped as a 4-cour series for a reason. Of course, I get what you mean, though. You people just have to think of animes in 13-week timeframes ;).

Quintessential Quintuplets featuring an "unwilling harem" sounds like a super neat idea. I'm even more intrigued now.

As for Date a Live, I concur the Origami was a blast of a character to watch. That date OVA episode was priceless :). Which is why I'm now a bit worried about her backstory and further development after listening to you... But perhaps the problems that irked you won't affect me much at all. We'll see.
Besides her, I also enjoyed the twin sisters a lot (one of which, I believe, was voiced by Brittney Karbowski... go figure). Too bad they didn't have much of a lasting presence after their arc. Mayyybe I'll get to see more of them in season 3 :>?
Oh, and Andrew reminded me of the "so lame" girl :D. She was voiced by Monica Rial in the English dub, who is one of the biggest VAs in the industry and usually has no trouble scoring bigger roles. It's a bit curious to see her play such a small part in this show. Or, in other words: That's so lame!

One of those amazing wonders of opinions haha!

Definitely a different side of them.. but sadly it was mostly a single episode.

Sadly enough, it seems like So Lame girl gets more lines than some of the harem team... Mind blown, I know.

Maybe she could get swapped into the harem instead? And then, when she finally gets some alone-time with Shido, they both strip down, she looks at his pants and says...
