She's so tsundere

Belgaesh 2011-01-16 18:57

I love tsunderes, and Houki is a great tsundere with her monologue during the second episode being lovely.

i like her kind of tsundere where she is aware of her feeling but is really just too shy to act on them and it just comes out like it does.

serenade_beta 2011-01-16 19:24

Pretty cute, but the girls around her seem to just be too high-level.
Like the China girl.
Like Nohohon.
Mainly Nohohon.

Though her attitude definitely won't help her make friends anytime soon...
Sure the protagonist was being annoying, but you didn't have to send him flying... Scared the mob trio away. (・ω・`)

Belgaesh 2011-01-16 19:28

Have to wait until the new heroines appear to decide which is best.

AlaAlba 2011-01-16 23:18

I always like a long pony-tailed kendo girl, but I also like the blonde ojou-sama type, hard to choose. and there's also nohohon-san XD

but one thing for sure, her name "broomstick" doesnt appeal that much for me :D

Asuras 2011-01-16 23:24

I'm a sucker for tsundere, and when tsunderism is coupled with kendo practice, it essentially magnifies the tsun part of her. :p

noobita 2011-01-16 23:34

She is my least favorite female character in IS. It is weird for me to dislike her when I love most of the tsundere characters....Funny, isnt it?

Asuras 2011-01-16 23:42

Not really, sometimes certain un-likable aspects of ones character can outweigh the fetishes you hold for his/her qualities.

cyberbeing 2011-01-17 04:03

My favorite girl so far. I don't think I would even classify her as much as a hardcore tsundere, as most seem to be doing. So far, all her behavior which could be considered tsun-tsun towards Ichika has had some sort of reason or justification behind it, and she doesn't seem to act tsun-tsun for the hell of it like most tsundere. Could she still be considered tsundere, yes, but I personally don't see it as her defining trait by any measure.

Overall she seems dere-dere when spending time in private with Ichika, with her tsun-tsun side being more targeted towards the other girls.

Houki....Houki, what to say. Im not very fond of her CV but I don't dislike the character as a whole.

germanturkey 2011-01-17 15:40

obviously the main ship. i like her personality too.

definitely the main ship and the one i am rooting for the most but I'm kinda hoping the world governments make an exception for Ichika concerning marriage. I'm sure they'll all want him breeding with their women as the only male IS pilot.

Aqua Knight 2011-01-17 17:39

She's maybe the best harem lead/main ship that I've ever liked in harem series. I agree that she's not total hardcore tsundere, but in some moments she could have acted less tsun-tsun and in some she could have acted less dere-dere.

But that makes her not the typical tsundere, so she's just fine.

PS
I got my Maths for Economists exam in 12 hours , what am I doing here...

Well, as long as you don't answer 'Houki' or 'tsundere' in your exam, I think you'll do fine...:heh: Hmm, to be honest, I'm not sold on Houki yet, I don't find her too annoying but I don't find her all that special either - hopefully that'll change as time goes and we know more about her. As for now, what I'm most curious about is her IS; after all, her sister is the inventor of IS, so I wonder if she left a special IS for her little sister?

germanturkey 2011-01-17 23:02

thing is, there's enough of her dere side that makes me like her. normally, you get a lot of tsun and not nearly enough dere.

They were also childhood friends to inspire this "dere" side. So that's probably the setup that made alot of fans like her ;)

Belgaesh 2011-01-17 23:11

At least she has a "dere" side, some some tsundere of late should be called only "tsun".

I'm not sure that you could say that Houki was surprisingly comfortable with Ichika when he walked in on her when she was dressed in nothing but a towel. I get the feeling that she was in shock but quickly recovered once Ichika realized that they were going to be roommates. Even if he had de-escalated the situation by saying "Do you want me to wait outside for a couple of minutes?" it's likely that she wouldn't let him get off lightly once she had gotten into something decent.
