The fight looked kind of cheaply done compared to the fights in the last season, with a bunch of the standard shounen camera tricks and effects to avoid having to do too much intense animation. I kind of expected it from JC Staff, but it's not a good look for a first episode especially. Season one had the same director as Space Dandy and Madhouse was clearly more interested in good energetic dynamics and fluid movement than detail and staying on model, which fits this series. The new production is very clearly more cheaply made and with a different set of priorities. That said, it's also not an important fight, so hopefully they're just planning to put more effort in the more significant ones later on.
Nevertheless I'm still pumped as fuck and really enjoyed the first episode. It wasn't bad by any means.
