Bright pastel colors! "Hip!" "Urbane!" Looks like Jet Set Radio! Cheap, digital, flash-looking animation! Watered down punk ethos via pouty, fey "indie" aesthetic! Superficially "insane", like watching 100 viral videos at once! Whatever. I'm just too old. But y'know, out with the old and in with the new and stuff. But, hey, you don't mind if the "new" is just an ironic/absurd/twee repackaging of the old, right? Oh generation Y. Dead Leaves does have much of the blink-and-you'll-miss-it sugar rush kineticism of FLCL, but it lacks the warmth and soul in both art design and characters. It's like watching an hour long Gorrilaz music video or something--who CARES how much giant robot action and contrived "mindscrewiness" there is, there's no content or weight to any of it.
Basically, when you reach my age (167), you begin to realize something: the harder you try to make something "CURRENT" and "NOW", the more obviously lame and dated it will be later.
