>first FLCL, now 2 of the worst shorts I have ever seen are getting a TV series

Not sure which is worse, that or the amount of 10/10 reactions I'm going to be seeing for the next decade.

I have no doubts about Netflix getting it. They've already got Kill la Kill (in Japanese with English subs only unfortunately.) as well as both of the Little Witch Academia movies (in English thank the Lord because I can't wait to show it to my nieces and nephew) I think it's got a spot on Netflix.

I can't quite describe the style--It's not quite anime, but it's not quite Western toons, either. Anime smile + sweatdrop

It's the same style that the director took to extremes in Kill La Kill, but here we have something cute and plot-focused, and isn't as deliberately all-over-the-map to confuse and disorient us. I had the Netflix luck to watch the LWA movies first, which might have spoiled me against the earlier more self-indulgent series.
Basically, if they took the KLK style and pasted it onto Gakuen Alice, with the obvious Harry Potter/Worst Witch tropes.

I really liked the first OVA, but haven't seen the second. Regardless, I'll most likely watch this at some point.
