If you don't like the animation it's fine, but BGC 2040 also has an
interesting story, kinda where the OAVs were aiming at, but never made it to
due to their short length. It's nearly four times the length of the OAV and
manages to fit some interesting plot developments in there after all the
characters are in place. So you kind of dropped it just as it was about to
get interesting. But that's just my opinion.
 I personally think the character designs are sort of the new 90's
style...you'll notice that in some of the more recent anime shows like
Cowboy Bebop, there is sort of a trend toward making the characters have
smaller eyes and more proportioned faces, giving anime less of a cartoony
look and more of a 'real' look. I've noticed similar patterns in 0083(By the
same designer as Bebop)even though it's 8 years old(Still looks good,
though).
