I'm kind of disappointed in myself for liking this show so much. Still, I feel like it's really going in the right direction considering how much of a standard harem show it could easily be at any time. There's hardly any of that, with most of the content being plot-driven, with lots of nice action scenes, and not much in the way of fanservice. Obviously the kissing plot element is there for the harem/fanservice aspect, but even with the way they're going about it, it doesn't seem too bad to me.
