Good show

Why does yellow look like that

For a pilot it's not even that ba- Wait hold up...

TALL HILLBILLY AND RED GOTH GAL ARE GAY?!

Fuck it I'm down.

Honestly, quite underwhelming considering how eye-catching the character designs are. The character interactions were awkward, the animation and sound design were minimal, although the voice acting was nice.
While striking, the designs of the three main girls are quite similar, considering Luna and Veronica have the same body type while Sarah is also the same, just plumpier + bigger chest (why does it jiggle everytime she talks?). It's a pity since the designs of the male characters in the background looked much more fun. One nitpick is that they look very grown for high schoolers, the whole setting seems to fit more a college.
All in all, interesting ideas that get muddled by weird scenes, clunky dialogue and very limited animation. It'd be very interesting to explore more in-depth characteristics of the girls and differenciate them in more ways than them simply fitting different tropes.
