That's neat. I've been getting Nichijou vibes from the visual style from the beginning but couldn't quite place my finger on exactly what all was setting that off. This is a nice articulation on part of that (the action sequences being another part).

For me it's the ED, or at least the first and last 8 seconds of it. What a good jam!

I haven't read the manga, although I enjoy the author's other work Ojojojo, but this show has been great so far!

I keep watching it because I cannot get enough of the dragons doing that snakey business at the start, but the song is also good.

I don't like how young Kobayashi looks in that, but I didn't find the technique problematic, especially since I've done stuff like that in the past (I sometimes find too-clean lines to be kinda boring looking). Can you expand on this?

the cleanly rendered knees are more fitting for cleaner lines but this is getting into nitty gritty art talk

She's still in the "enjoying the initial buzz" phase and hasn't progressed to the "revealing her power level" phase.
