Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora: Weird art work, too weird

Currently finished: somewhere in the middle of episode 2

Very few times, I've been completely thrown off an anime by its art style. Unfortunately, this is one of them. That static, cel-shaded, photo realistic background just bothers me too much. I just can't take it. Usually, regardless how much I don't like the art work, I usually manage to stay with the anime until I find out whether the story itself is worth it to put up with the art (Mononoke is an example, which I end up liking). This, however for some reason just crossed the threshold that I couldn't not put up with it for another second. It's bothering me so much that I couldn't even try to concentrate on the story. On top of that, the story itself isn't helping either. It's almost like part of the story is written to show off this weird art.

Verdict: Out, out, out
