Shit like that happens in some of the most well funded and expensive anime.
That's not a bad thing and is to be expected.
A characters design should serve a narrative purpose.
Most of the little details in the still shots of the pilot are important.
Like the voodoo symbols on Alastors coat, the upside down cross pattern his buttons make, the small radio antenna his antlers imitate, etc.
That's meant to be soaked in and later ignored in more fast, fluid shots.
Fucking movies do this let alone animation.
