I had exactly the opposite reaction, that's some awful character design. She looks like a scowling frog and why are her eyes lined with fur? And her body looks like some took an adult body, shrunk it and stuck a giant head on top.

Bizarre, since the rest of the character look fine.


All the other characters are adult. That is just the art style, unfortunately. It becomes more prominent in this sort of exaggerated perspective. The bug eyed girl drives me nuts in this, too. She looks normal in her character sheet but her eyes are incredibly distracting in animation. I'm hoping the art will grow on me as the series progresses. It is consistently exaggerated so I think it will become less annoying with time.

The older characters are less obvious but still are very stylized in animation.

I've known for a long time that ANN staff don't write the Spotlight text. I always assumed the fact that the text often sounds like it was written originally in Japanese and then put through the English Google translator would be a clue for others.
