New director each episode uh
I can already see it being a mixbag at best, depending who's directing, but maybe it could end up be a nice surprise. (the first director doesnt seem promising tho)

It might be worse than Fantasista Doll seeing as it will have 1 different director per episode on top of the BS that anime had when it comes to the mixed media format.

Each episode having a different director?

I mean, it's not BAD of an idea for a series to have a different style or format each episode, but at the same time I'm skeptical about this. I'll go and see from there but it looks promising.

Different director each episode might end up being a terrible decision...
