Characters - I'm always a fan of shows where the main characters are geniuses and where the writers take the time to also flesh out their personalities and show their actions in a way that the audience can follow. Its way more satisfying than when a one-dimensional genius character does a thing offscreen and you're supposed to find it impressive. Sora and Shiro are very relatable and entertaining. Watching them solve puzzles and play games is just a lot of fun. The supporting cast members are also great, but the two leads are definitely my favorite.
Visuals - The actual animation is a lot more smooth and fluid than I was expecting for an anime. Usually in animes the characters are slowed down due to the expensive backgrounds, but for the most part the characters here are slickly animated. It looks pretty great. Aside from the literal animation, the visuals are fantastic. The character designs and settings are all fun and nice to look at. The most unique visual decision made was that there aren't black outlines around characters and objects. Instead - the outlines are red or blue. It really gives the world a distinct feel.
Audio - I watched this with the Japanese dub. The voice acting is pretty great, along with the music and sound design.
Overall I would highly recommend this show. Its interesting, clever, satisfying, and funny. The only thing wrong with it is that at the time of me writing this review there is only one season.
