It is pretty much in the same stlye as Rebels.
No, it's much more anime styled than that.
The basic forms and shapes being used are very similar to Clone Wars and Rebels. Where they diverge for the most part is the coloration and the specific rendering method being used, which turns most of the color gradients into flat monochrome surfaces. This results in the characters becoming ugly blobs of colour.
Compare this to this scene from Rebels:
Or this one from Clone Wars:
The shading is much more stark in Resistance, the colours more bold, there aren't really any textures to speak of because it's all been flattened out like someone playing with high exposure sliders. As such detail is minimized to whatever casts a harsh shadow and can be defined by line-art. There is no transition from edge to edge that cannot be delineated. No shading allowed except whatever would turn up by casting a spotlight on the scene.
The basic bones of the character designs are still largely the same from what I've seen thus far-- starting way back with the Tartovosky cartoon and its stylized hard edges, then transitioning into a 3D animated form of that in early seasons of TCW, softening the edges in later seasons of TCW, and becoming almost fully rounded in Rebels. There's a definite lineage you can follow there to Resistance. Shame Resistance fucks it up with the colors, but otherwise it's definitely part of the family design-wise.
If that's "anime style", well, all I can say is I haven't really seen any anime that looks like this... yes, there's press that says they want it to be "anime style". Maybe it is; I dunno-- but I don't really read it as such.
It's a strange world. Let's keep it that way.
