Animation: 8/10. Smooth scenes, good quality art, moderate fan-service. Everything the male audience which it is directed towards would want in an anime. I had some issues with the characters' faces, as they were a tad angular for my tastes. But it's only my personal opinion. Transitions from art to CGI and back works well most of the time. OP and ED animations match well, with the OP serving as an introduction and the ED being a typical, "show all characters" sort of ending.
Sound: 9/10. Explosions, bangs, and whatnot are relatively well synced. Voice actors well- suited to their roles. The music is fairly generic (not that it's a problem... rather, generic music suites it well), and the OP (opening piece) is a dynamic, morale-boosting tune that fits well with the "hyped-up" and active feel of the whole series. The ED (ending) theme is also quite fast-paced and matches the theme well.
Plot + Execution: 7/10. An admittedly good plot for a generic series with such "mainstream" genres. The plot itself is unoriginal, but the execution of the whole thing makes it hard to point out any supposed weaknesses. Not too cheesy, romance appears when it needs to and remains relatively moderate, something which fits a series with such a not-so-happy back-story.
Overall Rating: 8/10. Would definitely watch it again, especially considering a second season is coming out. A good "entry" anime for all those interested in the harem romance genre. Also a good break for any mecha fans around.
