But if you ignore the pantslessness, which is really silly, but otherwise doesn't really do anything, and the absolutely retarded occasional camera shot where they threw the camera right between their thighs, there is still something there. Something actually enjoyable.
It's not deep or anything, but it's got pretty nice fights, the characters are likable, the story isn't written terribly, although it is simple, and the historical references are fun, along with the planes and the aliens.
It might be the creation of a studio going insane, but so far the only thing they've really goofed with is the lack of pants, and the occasional badly executed fanservice shot. And even then, ep5 saw drifting away towards more traditional, less taking up the entire screen with facepalm worthy desperation for money, to something more along the lines of what you see in other shows. A couple eyecatch shots, some funny scenes, etc. All of which thankfully decides to not slap you in the face with itself.
Either way, the show is still enjoyable to watch, and honestly isn't all full of ridiculous things. Not moreso than any other anime anyway. A lot of people are just blowing most of the silly things waaayy out of proportion. Not to mention there seem to be a good number of people who enjoy trolling it. And a number who like to continually make threads about it.
