For me, not really. It looks more like an artstyle that's common in seinen manga with realistic art and grounded stories. This is the key visual:


Here's the premise:
Quote:
The science-fiction ensemble drama centers around 36 boys and girls. On August 16, midway through a seemingly endless summer vacation, middle school third-year student Nagara (center in image above), the mysterious transfer student Nozomi (right), and classmates such as Mizuho (left) and Asakaze, are suddenly transported from their tranquil daily lives to a school adrift in an alternate dimension. They must survive with the super powers that have awakened within them.

Natsume conceived the story and is directing and writing the anime at Madhouse. Norifumi Kugai (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.) is handling the anime characters designs based on the original designs by manga artist and illustrator Hisashi Euguchi (Stop! Hibari-kun, original character designs for Roujin Z, Perfect Blue, Planet Survival).

Studio Pablo's Mari Fujino (Dororo) is directing the art, and Ken Hashimoto is the color key artist. Akane Fushihara is serving as the compositing director of photography, and Kashiko Kimura is editing. Shōji Hata is directing the sound.

Ging Nang Boyz rock band vocalist and guitarist Kazunobu Mineta wrote the theme song "Shōnen Shōjo" (Boys and Girls), as heard in the video, specifically for the anime.

Cast is out. So far, it's basically a Boogiepop reunion.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

As an original this could end up being mediocre or even terrible, of course. But it's literally the only series on the schedule that looks to me like it at least has the potential to be great.

Episode 1

I really like the art style of this show tbh, feels stylistic and unique even with the way character expresses their personalities.

Premise seems interesting and I find most of the cast intruging. This can either be a hit or a miss but honestly, the way they build this first episode showed promise. Looking forward to more honestly.

The Lord of the Flies inspiration was really obvious.

Some exposition would have been nice because I'm super confused. They're completely cut from the outside world, but they have running water, electricity, either cell phone service or the internet, and it looks like they can even order what they need on Nyamazon? (I doubt all those boxes were previously on school grounds)

The first episode already made the villain obvious.

I think this could either end up really good or a complete disaster.

Natsume himself said that when he was watching the edits he was horrified by how little explanation there was.

This definitely doesn't bother explaining anything and pretty much just throws you into it. It doesn't seem like they are going to provide much exposition down the road either.

The second episode pretty much answered all my questions right at the beginning. I find the setting pretty fascinating. Will they keep traveling to different worlds and have to adapt to the their rules every time?

Good characters, too.

I'm leaning heavily towards this show ending up being really good after this episode.

So we really did get an explanation for what's going on. So far their best bet for escaping seems to be going through several worlds until they reach the end. That girl's "compass" ability will probably be useful, but I doubt things will be as simple as just using her ability.

Just found out that the character designer is the manga artist, although he is not writer of this anime. No wonder the character design looks familiar.

Another really good episode, which added a bit more mystery and developed the characters. I'm really liking Mizuho.

So they could already use their powers at school before they "drifted" and Hoshi's power is apparently to hear the voice of a higher being. It seems like Nagara's power is to jump between worlds, and he may have been the one responsible for the whole thing (at least the being adrift part).
