Another show gets the SHAFT.
The story actually seems kind of interesting. A shut-in with his super-Clippy girlfriend go out and meet random people with super powers.
But… SHAFT. Jesus. Their style has been old for over five years now. And it always gets in the way of the story rather than complementing it. Maybe originally they could claim it was “creative” at least. But now? No way. They’ve been doing the exact same thing in every show they’ve adapted for years.
In Zetsubou-sensei the “I’m in despair!” eyes were great. They fit the narrative perfectly. But here? Not at all. Just a distraction for the viewers to wank the SHAFT. Same with the Hidamari checkerboard patterns. They were cool in Hidamari. But in this? Not at all. Just more wanking.
Can you teach an old dog new tricks? Apparently the answer is no.
