Nothing wrong with aiming for a specific audience but don't go pretending something you aren't.
So by your statement where do you categorize Chibi Maruko-Chan/Doraemon, and other old art style shows?

I mean seriously... I consider them derp faces. Should I apply that same kind of logic here?

Also how many people said this was going to be for the "everyday" audience? This is a really shallow way of looking at it. Could be compared to as shallow as a drop of water.

Every new KyoAni show. Seriously I don't want this to go off topic so I'll just say it anyway
