Okay for what it is...
... and what it is mostly is an exercise in finding excuses for gratuitous lingerie shots, masquerading as a female-oriented spy thriller. To that end, most of the characters are young, female and attractive and involved in a lot of wild and occasionally skirt-raising action. The baddies have a literal army of short-skirted minions, viewed typically from a low angle, while our intrepid heroines seem to have great trouble finding clothes that can hold together in the whirl of battle.
It's all rather silly and obvious, but it's well-drawn, decently plotted and good-looking entertainment for what it is. Just don't expect Lupin III, and get ready for more fan service in the first half hour than in a whole season of any other show.
