I'd be seeing more of it if the background art styles was a bit different
There is actually a purpose behind the stylized background and animation style. It's intended to mimic ancient Japanese scrolls/prints. The reason behind this mimicry is the premise of the show, alternate-reality Japan, where the Shogunate is still in control. It's the modern era, but things are still handled in an ancient fashion.
On another note, I don't mind if you don't like the art. But you don't need to degrade it by calling it a "cheap puppet show."
