Honestly, I started watching it because of the egglaying copypasta, and I kept watching it because I love Amu. She's just a great character. I don't particularly care that the show is a bit formulaic, and it's not like I otherwise watch a lot of magical girl shows anyway.
If you don't like it by episode 9, then it's not for you. Why are you asking /a/? You've obviously already made up your mind.
