I think so. It's a bit melodramatic, but its got some racism in it. The characters at least some somewhat realistic, and unique in their own way. Its got some Christianity in it too(I'm an atheist, so maybe my view on this is skewed) that seems pretty faithful and not Eva-style "LOL A CROSS."
Actions scenes, as I said, disappointing, but not completely horrible.
I'm not really sure what genre it is. Don't go into it looking for exactly something. Like don't go in expecting "slice of life" or "mecha" or "romance" etc.
