Well, we haven't finished it, mind, and I've been told the ending is 
anti-climatic, but it definitely becomes less episodic and less 
"Let's go kill a witch.  Okay.  Let's go kill another.  Okay...".  I 
also think that it's quite well drawn and has more of a coherent 
feeling than a lot of anime.  (I also watched it at about the same 
time as Escaflowne, and they balanced well.)
The meta-plot introduced is quite interesting, although it's 
developing rather slowly, and we can't get our hands on the end 
episodes.  I would recommend sticking with it past the first few 
episodes, at least.  Wait until the "Piece of knowledge" plot is 
introduced before giving up.
