I think they were trying too hard to make this different. When you have that kind of goal its gets to an artist on a subconcious level and the results usually have mix results. Kind of like the way music artists change their music with each new record. You have to sound differently or else you'll end up like Nickelback.

This is presented as Yukie Sako's work as well. So it is really a lot to do with colorig, as this doesn't look at all how she draws their eyes.
The way she draws the characters’ bodies honestly makes me so uncomfortable.

I think she would have been a great guest animator. But clearly being a character designer and chief animation director for a big name show was not the best idea among the other terrible ideas at Toei.

The director is also at fault for the proportions. I remember on some interwie she mentioned how he asked to put lips higher or something. She is actually pretty experienced animator, so it is circumstances and lack of chara design experience, as well as cheap studio. She has worked to high end ones most of the time.

Doing stuff in a novel way is good, provided that one has got the capability to do so, otherwise the result will become even worse than being mediocre.
