If you expect kill la kill and/or flcl you are gonna get disappointed. Influence =/= likeness.
Kill la Kill had tension in plot and meaning. The abstract and minimal world made the symbolism even more obvious. Just like in Evangelion the world was given an overall feeling and then left mostly unexplained. Not saying it was as good, but the ideas were the same.
In Flcl the world is sub/urban everywhere hell where heroes have left to soil themselves in the u.s. and not much anything has a sensible explanation. It exists and you have to sit and watch it in apathy. On the bright side the basic human urges give this one kid the ground to stand and walk with his own feet.
Rolling Girls' world is nothing out of the ordinary. If the brown-haired girl didn't join the local whatever-squad, her life would be that of an ordinary high school student bar the possible super-battle that could wreck some buildings somewhere. This goes for every baseball manga/anime protagonist, too. They need to join their clubs to live a seishun. No paranoia, no having your feelings eaten by an urban hellhole, no fascist student council government. I agree it looks funny and is probably inspired by some other funny-looking animes out there.
The only 'tension' I could gather from the first episode is that this young woman with big boobs is attracted to this other young woman who wears a scarf and so is the brown-haired girl. It was hinted that they might have some reasons to, too.
Definitely looks good and the girls are incredibly pretty. I hope there will be some plot to tie the scenes together in the future.
