Baffled by the response to Eizouken. It's so fun and imaginative. Plus the characters are really enjoyable. I didn't even know who the director was? I'm relatively new to anime (and recently found this podcast). The way you talked about the director makes it sound like he is relatively well known and liked. Since I'm loving Eizouken I suppose I'll have to seek out more from the director. Keep up the good work on the podcast!

Masaaki Yuasa is indeed a very big deal within the anime community, he's directed a lot of really great shows and never disappointed at least for me. So I personally highly recommend pretty much everything he's directed. Also since this is you first post here why don't you head on over to the introduction section and make an introductory post, if you plan on making more posts in the future i'd be neat to get to know you and have you as a part of the community.
Everything I say is in relation to me, objectivity doesn't exist.

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken - Chris, you stated something along the lines of the show turning you off when the girls go into there animated adventures. I just wanted to say I had the opposite reaction. I thought it was a refreshing way to enhance there experiences and processes. Basically to me, there is quite a bit to unpack there. For one, it really highlights the 2 girls creativity and imagination. It also shows the process in which the girls are figuring out how to animate something but in a visual and imaginary way. Like jumping into the head of 2 creators that are completely vibing off of one another. The third girl acts as someone to ground these 2 even in this process. She’s obviously shown to not be completely into these happenings but nonetheless, she plays along which helps to keep the other 2s creative juices rolling. This is also an amazing visual way to show strife and disconnect between the creative forces later. If the 2 creative girls are not able to gel together and vibe like they have been then it can be visually displayed during these sequences. And not to mention the animation of these scenes are gorgeous to look at and help it stand out from the crowd.
You stated the the one negates the other but I think they compliment each other wonderfully.
I hope maybe with this take it can help you look at the style of this anime a little more fondly.
