Okay thank god I'm not the only one who recognizes that this thing is unsettling and nowhere near the ballpark of OVA faithfulness. I had a feeling everyone would just praise it and call it a great continuation worth watching. Fortunately I was only partially right. So, because "aesthetics have changed" (exactly what that means or how that works is not explained here), that means a fan sequel should be extremely different and unfitting to its source material, in a way that is absurd and tasteless? If this is how "aesthetics have changed" then this is a terrible time. I should expect that a fan sequel is faithful to the original in some capacity, not something silly and random. And no those models are not faithful to the original designs. They're very off model.
