I think Inori is a horrible character though so far but it's only two episodes in. The villains are also horribly written. Character development takes time and saying that whichever character isn't developed, isn't a fair criticism of a show only two episodes in of a 22 episode show.
I think this plan backfired though. The character designs aren't any better; save Inori, they're horribly generic. And the characters aren't realistic either, but what's worse is that the show is trying to sell the idea that they are. Character development may take time, but everyone we've seen right now has the dimensions of a cardboard cutout. The music is mostly good, but at this point I really can't call it "better" than Code Geass' music.
