Animation is by AIC Spirits. Not something we haven't seen from them in the last 2-3 years given Strike Witches and Ga-Rei -Zero-. In fact, I found Ga-Rei -Zero- to generally have higher quality of animation than this show for the most part. Furthermore, the art is absolutely terrible. Odd physical proportions aside, I recall often seeing facial shots that were too long (e.g. nose too far above mouth or nose too close to the eyes, etc...). Lastly, while the sketch-like artworks were probably the highlight of the show, the overuse and length still shots of them made me further question the low animation budget for this show.
Music was pretty bad for the most part. The OP was okay but not something worth listening to over and over again (decent instrumental though). ED was awful and background music wasn't particularly noticeable or memorable. Seiyuu was pretty bland across the board with literally everyone sounding the same at the end of the day. Not even Sayuri Yahagi as Kodama Himegami could save the show at the end of the day.
Enjoyment? None absolutely none. At first I thought the show might have something going for it in its finale, but then they not only rushed it, but also seemingly skipped every important detail possible.
Overall, this is really not a show worth watching. Unless you were in for the ecchi I wouldn't waste your time with this. Furthermore, there are far better ecchi titles than this series and I'm not going to bother naming them since almost every major ecchi title (good and bad) I can think of outclass this one. Heck, if you want a similar title with a similar premise, go watch Freezing.
Preliminary Score: 5/10
Final Score: 3/10

When i first saw it it had some serious problems with storyline and characters.
Maybe a rewatch could help solve some of the major issues with the loose ends it created...that proved to be wrong. The writers didn't do anything with those ends which could have been missed when watching it the first time. This series broke down due to have not one good storyline. Sure Usui has an unknown power but to only do something with it in a few episodes is weak. To make things worse the writers forgot to slowly build up the information about it. Suddenly he gets strong and wants to destroy everything...the only word for this story is stupid.
The romance part which could have helped was pointless. The only girl which was good enough for Usui was dropped in the last episode. Suddenly she is just a girl who doesn't do anything to save him from his madness. Himegami never was a candidate but what happened to her background on why he is her enemy. And why is she a danger according to Minerva? We never got any true background on that part.
In all this series was and is a big disappointment. It fails to deliver in almost all critical points like story, character, animation, music and so on. Only because it had a few good moments, this series gets a 3 out of 10 from me. As Kit-Tsukase suggests: do yourself a favor and watch something else like Freezing.
