Difficult to say. It really depends on what you're into.
The anime itself doesn't take itself particularly seriously (which is kind of an absurd thing to say, as it's not, you know, a sentient being or anything), but there are always
going to be people who make up for that
It's kind of the polar opposite
, I'm afraid, if that's a big consideration. In fact, I occasionally think that the second season treats everybody with possibly too much
But you might be interested in the genrebusting
elements - it's best described as a Super Robot
fanatic's love letter to the Magical Girl
genre, writ large. So there's a limit on how serious it can possibly be, not to say that it isn't emotionally engaging on a number of levels.
I love the franchise to bits but, like everything else, it's not without its flaws.
Pretty difficult to beat in terms of exuberant, feelgood entertainment.
