Best show of the season. No question about it.

What's the show's appeal?
That guy in Houston dissed it. That makes it automatically kewel.

I like it because it is delightfully manic. It's not terribly fanservicy (word?) but it does look like it is going to be a lot of fun

And that realization surprised the heck out of me; the storytellers have done a very good job of masking that fact.
It wasn't until ep07 that they introduced an antagonist, and
If they keep up the storytelling quality of the first six eps, they won't have any problem at all. Yes, the art style is distinctive, and that will turn off a lot of people, but this duck isn't one of them. In fact, I rather like it.
Ubu, you ask about the appeal. The same as for any show: the characters.

It doesn't yet seem to have any of the hallmarks of a great series, but it so far has been at least a good one. I don't know if I'd call the characters a selling point; while I enjoy Maka, BlackStar causes me to cringe every time he opens his mouth. The series has been fairly well plotted, at least so far, with the action scenes being exciting and story driven. The setting, while distinctive, is odd enough that I can see why some people would dislike the series because of it.

Now, having watched Kureni and Daughter of Twenty Faces through episodes 4 each, I'm willing to entertain that I might have made errors there. Kureni is dark and gritty, and they've got a backstory that's being rolled out slowly. I can't tell at all where it's going -- could be tragic, could be uplifting. (Could the OP be more mismatched? Yes, I've seen DE:MC.)
Daughter of Twenty Faces is a bit more predictable, especially as the OP and ED give away a major series spoiler. On the other hand, a character I didn't expect is recurring, and I think there's going to be a reckoning somewhere... and I am so looking forward to it.
