One of the easiest fighters to get into imo, mainly because of the great tutorial mode that goes from basic movement to the more expert mechanics. Hand-drawn graphics look gorgeous, gameplay is very smooth, and each of the characters have a lot of diversity from each other.
I bought it for Xbox back when it launched for $15 more than a year ago. Donated $25 to the IGG campaign when that was going on a few months back and I'm glad to see the game getting back on its feet on Steam.
The guys at Lab Zero also take a lot of community feedback into account and answer a lot of questions during their Salty Cupcakes streams every Thursday night. There's the usual elitists in the community (although not as many as in most from what I've seen), but most players I've seen are very helpful in helping out newbies and getting them up to speed.
Definitely worth a buy. One of the more polished fighters out there in my opinion.

Its basic and generic. The best 2D fighter is still Blaze Blue. I wouldn't spend more than 5 bucks on it.
Ironic considering you don't even know how to spell the games name.
What is ironic about that? http://i2.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/010/692/19789999.jpg
It's ironic because he described Skull Girls as "basic and generic" while describing "Blaze Blue" as the best 2D fighter, when both of these statements are essentially the opposite of reality with BB being more basic and generic, and it's worse because he doesn't know what the "best 2D fighter" is called.
a : the use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning
Heard it's a solid fighter but I haven't tried it out myself. Also that's called fan service and if you don't like it then just stay away from anime in video games period because you will rarely get away from it.
