Yeah I saw that... Overall I think the review was a bit overly harsh, especially regarding the animation and artwork. I obviously can't sound off on the dub quality, having only seen two minutes of it, but what I saw didn't merit merely a C+ rating. I can see where he's coming from on the story front, as the plot progression did suffer from "Kajishima-itis", a.k.a. switching between spurts of rapid plot development and interminable slice of life atmosphere, but I found the world building fascinating rather than confusing, and the "fluff" entertaining rather than boring. Oh well, the only real measure that matters on ANN isn't the official review anyway, and the user ratings graph is looking pretty green to me!
EDIT: I also agree wholeheartedly with the fanservice aspect of the review. It was pretty poorly executed throughout, but it was better and less frequent than GXP's IMO.
