LMAO this looks trippy as fuck.

So can we expect some top tier walking animation from Studio 3Hz as usual?

Honestly it just looks like a family friendly show hence the simplistic and non-threatening character designs. Of course only MAL could make the mistake that this would ever be targeted at their mostly teen demographic and "mature" viewers. Note the quotations.
What in the actual fuck are you talking about mate.
Also the PV looks unexpectedly dope. Might check it out, looks fun.


People melting down on the character designs for what looks like it's probably a show for general audiences.

Oh boy, I wonder who thought those designs were a good idea. With that said though, after giving the PV a watch they do look a bit better in motion and are kind of charming in their own freakishly left-field way. Also, it seems like we can expect some nice animation with this too, not expecting much but it might be worth a shot and a new director is always good to see.

Honestly, I kind of like the character designs, for some odd reason. Will watch.

Everything I've seen from Studio 3Hz has been mediocre or worse so expecting very little from this,also the character design (specifically the eyes look hideous).

I was going to pass on this,but I'll give it a shot because of Takashi Kojima and his animation works in Shinsekai yori and Death Parade

This can be either good or bad. I can't say that I like the key visual though.

Mar 25, 2016 7:56 AM by GoldenDevilGamer

This seems to be one of those so bad it's good anime like Punchline.

the character design looks good to me, simple character designs tend to compensate with better animation quality anyway

will give it a try

Oshiyama is an amazing animator, so you're probably in for a treat.
