I recognized it immediately because dere Houki reminds me of dere Shiino. Specially when Shiino is getting shy.

Man I am confused, I'm going to need a good summation on this episode before I can get it through my skull.

I wouldn't say that implies lack of shame or anything - neither of them were dressed in an exposing manner, and even if one or two were in pajamas/nightgowns, it isn't that much of a big deal. Anime as a whole tends to exaggerate a whole lot, to the point where we almost take these exaggerations as the norm, but in reality you would be quite hard pressed to find someone who would actually flip out about this. It's Houki who is overreacting, not the other girls under-reacting - a sleeveless shirt and shorts isn't exactly an overly revealing outfit, which is what most of them were wearing.

I enjoyed that. Sure, it's a mass of cliches, but they are put together well, and I enjoy the characters. I also like the way they stop before taking the situations too far. The characters are not stupid caricatures, just caricatures.

As you can see from my avatar and sig, I am right there for Hikasa Youko, and she did not disappoint. Neither did Yukana as the hoity-toit blonde Englishwoman. Or Toyoguchi Megumi as the teacher/big sister. Seems like quality to me.

And the fanservice is relatively tame. Minus the subtle gainaxing here and there and the straight off the book fanservice shots (Cecilia shower scene next episode)

Guess who gets the first post series launch color pic of being in an IS on pixiv?

Watched the 1st episode and so far it is very good. Hopefully it last longer then 12 episode if goes to 26 or more I still be happy watching it. And it would be even better if it can out on dvd or bd media.

lmao... this made my day!
well, I only ask that, because eye-patched/heterochromatic eyes girls are by far my fav. anime fetish.

as long as she will unpatch herself sometimes, then I'm perfectly fine with it. "Innovator" or not... hahahaha...

Well, all that may be related after all, coming from the first factor, and at least they try to have a diverse cast/haremettes from multiple nations, let's just hope they won't get stereotyped too much.
I haven't seen evidence of this being true so far. Maybe there are characters that have yet to be introduced but if this show is anything like most anime of its calibre, it's supposedly international school will consist mostly of Japanese and one person from the three most popular European countries. Already they're playing to the pompous, casually nationalist Englishwoman stereotype so I'm not hoping for much.

Gotta love all the puns that can be made at the expense of France .
