I can imagine that'd be hell trying to animate all of that.
Oh I understand that perfectly, I'm not asking for a Clannad class animation. But at least they can work on the characters a bit more.

The art balance between background and character is also weird. Some shots look like they employed people who used to do children's illustration's. Or perhaps pre-digital colour age anime.

Nice art, but out of place for an anime. Especially given the character animations.
