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.
