Art is good. Nothing groundbreaking but not boring either. Most of the game's personality is carried by the Tdolls you pull from playing regularly or from production-rolling, all with varying artists and voice actresses (VA's as they call it). The music is surprisingly good too, plenty of memorable tunes, and some worth getting the OST of this game for (keyword: some).
The storyline leans more towards the gritty edgy dark side of being a military-based game. Granted they sugarcoat most of the themes with the dialogue and the anime-looking anthropomorphic weaponry, there's enough PTSD and drama here for those who're looking for #deeplore. You don't need to wholly understand the lore while you're playing, since the narrative hinges mostly on unknown variables and cliffhangers, leaving you to either sit in the dark and speculate who is who, or just go to Google and look up the current lore of the game in its entirety.
Value-wise, I'd say it's a decent game to invest time on. If you're competitive and a completionist, it might be hard right now since they just finished a bunch of limited-run events with event-exclusive Tdolls. If you're fine with not having those, the game has plenty more to offer, in the form of building dormitory infrastructure, helping others with Support Echelons (basically sending a squad you have to assist others in their campaigns), and collecting all the skins, which require gacha currency, which is purchasable with premium currency or obtainable (albeit slowly) via in-game methods. Again, all these are entirely doable without spending a dime, and you are given well enough methods of acquiring resources and currency within reasonable (if not maddeningly-scarce) means.
The game is a slow burn, and if you want to invest in a gacha game that quantitatively rewards grinding and dedication, this might be it. You'll have to bite the bullet with RNG though since doll production and gacha rolls are still luck-based, but they've been more lenient with rate-up events and your first rolls, so you'll just have to stay updated on that by playing often (as you do with most of these gacha-type games).
