Oh the staff is pretty... underwhelming to be fairly honest. I mean the director and series composition is kinda... average I guess. I suppose it depends how these are handled so.

I got no clue about the source material but this staff list is pretty lackluster to say the least. Like the director and scriptwriter alone feel really meh. I guess I gotta wait and see how everything turns out before judging it but my current impressions aren't really that good tbh.
