1 = delicious girly boy, surprisingly incredible fight scenes
2 = delicious girly boy, no fight scenes but introduced delicious Raimei
3 = no girly boy scenes on the caliber of eps 1 and 2, fight quality went to utter crap (we're talking single characters on screen performing a stock attack with speed lines in the background)
So... yeah. If ep 4 doesn't bring out the big guns, it's bye bye.
