In episode 4, around the 10:15 mark, there is an animation error regarding the way the surroundings are reflected off of Celty's visor. As Celty approaches and eventually passes things in the surround, objects should get smaller as they move towards the edge of the visor because the visor thins as it moves toward the edges. Instead, objects increase in size as Celty passes them, a budget-saving animation shortcut that creates the bizarre effect of making her visor look like it's driving toward something in the opposite direction.
