In a way it kinda makes sense why Heartseed find them "amusing". Their 5-men club is pretty much a collection of "odd-one-out" and their mentality is simply... weird, compared to other normal kids. You'd think each of the main cast have their own eccentricity/weirdness for Heartseed's "lolz meter".
I don't find the "5 Dads" thing especially trivial at all - it's very drama of the week for me. And the huge gap in seriousness between the three girls (to some extent excluding Inaba, who really is overstating her own problems) and the guys is pretty exasperating.
