A well made parody anime mocking its fellows from years before, it takes a well thought out and wicked jab at genres like the simpleminded heroine, evil organizations and small task forces dedicated to fighting them in place of the normal police, super human and mecha anime, drunken but heart of gold head of staff, a department full of misfits, all of them steryotypes that get a good ribbing out of this show.
They break the 4th wall and make a mockery of advertisement and product placement in such a blatant way, that its actually effective!
Its definitely light hearted, and basic story line, several more in read more

Old movie/ova with female leads possessing superhuman strength, lots of funny moments and some over the top fights.
However Assemble insert is more of the parody of typical anime setting (A simple minded girl fighting for government instead of police) and making fun of advertisement in anime industry while PROJECT A-Ko is more of over the top action comedy with references of older works.
Both light hearted and from the same era, both have memorable and enjoyable characters, and both are very well written.
