It expects the audience to willfully ignore its poor writing, because hey-- there are cute girls to gawk at! Date A Live, in all of its wisdom, also tries to push a semi-serious 'plot' amidst its comedy. If he is hurt, he will be magically healed through some convenient plot device.
Drawing inspiration from the 2008 manga "Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai", Date A Live presents itself as a pseudo-parody of otaku culture.

He doesn't need to fight or do anything remotely intelligent, because why the hell would he? Date A Live is not concerned about petty notions such as 'sense'.
Characters are rendered in a consistent manner and the colorful art design tends to make up for any imperfections that the animation occasionally has.
It is certainly a step down from the original light novel illustrations, though. It's almost a little saddening, even, knowing that such quality was expended on a show of this caliber.
