So far Ichika hasn't done anything most of us haven't seen before, he is pretty much what you would expect him to be given the situation, but we'll see after next week how he handles himself in a fight.

It's not only Ichika though, this introduction episode in general is also as normal as it gets

That is true its our average introduction episode describing the situation and theme this show is going. I'm sure the mecha fans would love this, and there is even harem hinted all over about it.

well, in the pre-OP sequence, he seemed to handle himself quite well.

Most mecha fans hate such harem/high school hijinks. This type of stuff offends them. The fact it is based off a novel which was from teh same publisher as Kampfer does not help in changing their opinions

Seeing this rendered as an "us vs. them" conflict is disheartening. Whether it's for love comedies or giant robots or both, in the end, we're all nerds.

I'm assuming that's somewhere in the future when he's more leet

But in any case, it is my opinion that we should change the standards for [Typical Harem Male Lead]. I mean for a long time now it's been common for every one of them to be averagely competent, not whiny, and have at least a few 'Heroic' moments under their belt

I think that's only the case because the first episode doesn't have enough gear-talks, Just toss in a bit of techno-exposition and they'll be happy... Until they start criticizing about how this and that works...

I was speaking more of the anime fandom as a whole than this particular show, but as long as some common ground can be found on a small level, there's hope for the upper levels.

Ah, well its still the introduction episode, but if this already offends a mecha fan to the limit of not watching it anymore. I don't know.

That is another true statement, it still hasn't talked about the setups of an IS yet.

Thats what I like about our male hero for this anime as well! He may be a little clumsy towards the features of IS and everything around it, but atleast he isn't completely useless and takes a challenge! I might actually approve of him once I see more episodes

action is great hope it would stay that way and it would be more action like that opening scene because the story is kinda mediocre

I'm holding back firm judgement until I see more but initially I like it. I'm getting bored watching romance so I hope it takes the backseat, but if they pull it off well then I won't complain.
If they continue to churn out animation like that at the beginning of the episode I will like this show even more.
I love science fiction stuff so seeing all these floating screens pop up (like the name popping up when it was self intro time) and the little things like the sign outside the room changing from class number to break-time (I think it said) makes me giddy.

The only major problem i had at first glance with this first ep is how the setting uses normal countries, it would be much better i think if it was like Strike Witches or another kind of alternative universe.
