[Spoilers... obviously] [also just to add, I rewatched it like a year and a half after it came out and it’s rewatch value is actually pretty good]

I had more fun than I should have. This shows animation is horrible, but it wierdly enough made the show all the more better in this case. The show was almost always had bad 3D animation and sometimes a barely ok 3 second (at most) 2D animation. The story was ok until the last episode where it upgraded from ok to a slightly better version of ok. The characters are fine, but my personal favorite was the rip off ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (7/13 eps)
To be honest, it's not a horrible anime, but it's just average (if you exclude the animation).

The premise was cool and I liked the overall idea initially, though I found myself losing interest quite a few times throughout the story.

The CGI needed work. I know it's a new studio and they tried, but I don't think that's a valid excuse for producing subpar animations. It was really difficult to start watching because of this. The 3D animations felt out of place; they didn't look natural. There were weird switches between 3D and 2D. Sometimes there were 2D animations in the background with 3D ...

Tesla Note, the second coming of Ex-arm... Is it that bad? Kind of yes, but mostly for different reasons.

Don't get me wrong, this show is ugly. 3D is half-baked at best, constantly supplemented with bottom-tier 2D (outside of nice backgrounds), inconsistently animated (sometimes quite well, sometimes atrociously when the team rushed important scenes and patchworked stuff together in the most jarring ways). It's not as broken as Ex-arm and not as hideous as Gibiate, but that's basically the only positive thing you can say about Tesla Note's looks. At least the inappropriately-high-quality voice cast does their absolute best to bring the over-the-top characters and cringy ...
