From Wikipedia, I found some interesting info on Elly's machine Fang Quake.

correct me if i'm wrong... the girls at him are...

-rich ojou-sama
-bubbly (?) childhood friend that he saved from bullying
-crossdressing girl
-tough-as-nails german female
-older sister that is also his teacher (im not so sure because due to the spoilers, the brocon tendency is VARIABLE, so not yet confirmed)

To be honest she only cross dressed for one volume. And if anything Charlotte shows more signs of being a Yamato Nadesico than the other heroines, maybe except for Houki.

Elly is a new character from vol 6. She is the America's representative IS pilot, which makes her on the same level as Tatenashi. Her IS is indeed based on Shenlong weaponry, but more advanced. Just like how Silent Zephyr is more advance than Cecilia's Blue Tears.

Oh gosh, i am looking forward to this. If this has many american stereotypes, I would spend more time clutching my stomach in laughter than read.

Also, keep in mind that the basic setting of IS - only female can use IS - and its effect on sociaty and the resulting social status could cause many key heroines in this series to show 'Tsundere' attribute.
(Although it wouldn't matter much because many of them have tsundere attribute as their characteristics anyway...)

But, it seems like the more wealthy countries have more than one IS...

Edit add

Other questions I have:
1) Since cores can't be tinkered yet, do all IS have a fixed amount of energy?
2) How long can the shield of an IS last under repeated attacks from an IS using weapons of moderate power (below the threshold necessary to pierce an IS' shield kind of power)?

Are we positively sure that it's a one-season only?

Without reference, the 12 eps on wikipedia doesn't count.

Positive.

DVD/BD is already on preorder stage, (BTW, I already ordered vol.1) and there are 6 volumes in total. (2 episodes per volume)

BTW, I'm kind of against 25+ episode opinion.

True, I'd love to see more episodes, and if the condition was right, I'd say go for it, but you see, there are problems...


1. budget

Let's compare IS with an actual 25-episode work, Macross Frontier.

They are made by roughly the same staff, so I'd say the quality of work per budget would be about the same.

Well... I seriously doubt that a completely unproven, unknown work such as IS could get similar production budget as a work with all-popular 'Macross' brand printed on it.

And Macross F did fine with their budget, but I saw lots of recycled CGs, especially toward the end of the serise. Possible budget problem?


2. Contents

Simply put, there is nowhere enough contents to do a 25-episode work with the original material currently out.

Sure, they could do lots of anime-only centents, but I think the kinds of contents hastely created to fill the gap tends to lose quality.

And the already small budget would be stretched even thinner...

Thank you for answering, zephyr.

One more question and I'll be good for a while. How many known countries are there with IS or have been mentioned to have IS? From scanning the other thread, I've only gathered this much:

Japan
France
Germany
Britain
China
America
Russia
Italy
Israel

is the anime actually going to follow the LN or is it going to have its own ending? I usually hate those endings.

Give or take estimation is fine to just put things into picture for me. But if you can recall the exact numbers, then that'd be great.

The IS Academy at least need adequate numbers of IS so they can train pilots, though. But I'm going to guess that trainer type IS are capable of being used by anyone (like in general), so each class have schedules to use those IS. Only representative pilots should have their own IS that they're given to test or to compete in the Mondo Grosso.

Regarding my question, I meant how many countries are there that have been listed or mentioned in the LN who have IS or have been said/hinted to have IS, not from a guess. There are more than the ones that I listed, no?

I'd say they would do the short stories from vol.4 to fill out the remainder and the final epilogue would feature a preview of contents from vol.5, with brief introduction of new character, Tatenashi, and not bother with any special ending.

That way they could go ahead with season 2 (provided that the DVD/BD sales allows it) and continue with vol.5 without much trouble.

I see. I see.

Hmm. An anon from a certain image board said that Poland was also mentioned once in the novels. It's possible to add them too.

I wouldn't dream of using Wikipedia as a source for any reliable info on anime/manga - half the time the stuff written on there is either fancruft, original research, or baseless speculation.
