Just finished watching the series and I gotta say it was actually pretty good. I enjoyed the characters and I find the plot to be pretty interesting. The concept of the series was an interesting idea, but originally I saw it as just a less fantasy-esque copy of Strike Witches, but after watching a few episodes I saw it as something more. It was still a Strike Witches-esque story with Strike Witches-esque characters (okay really the moe girls fighting war is the main connection but still, the characters are similar.) but at the same time something new shown through, an interesting story that could hold its own. I would have liked to see more in depth character study as an aspect of war effecting these young women, as well as a more diverse cast instead of just the archetypes that we all know so well. The art was very well done and had some of the most breathtaking scenes I had seen in an anime for a while. Overall I liked the series and recommend it to anyone who likes similar series. 
Rating:
Characters: 2.5/5 
Plot: 3.5/5
Art: 5/5
Production (By this I mean direction and any technical aspects like sound editing or Voice Acting): 4/5
Overall: 4/5

Now I have seen several articles over the past year or so talking about how moe is taking over anime and I just have to say that I too see it and have a hard time getting used to it. Now I'm no expert on the subject and while that may be the case I think I can offer a perspective that most experts can't, the perspective of a laymen. Now what I see moe as is a sort of changing of the guard, a sociological movement in anime from one  ideology to another. We may not like it now, but change often comes with anger and disgruntled anons. But I think this change can have good effects over time and reshape the industry for the better.
