The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things Ichika related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Infinite Stratos fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!
Note: Please don't use this for the specifics (i.e. episode, chapter, game, etc. discussion) there are other threads for that stuff.
Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whinging and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.
  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.
  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.
  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.
  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.
    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!
    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

-Voice is kind of annoying
-Protagonist Power on full drive
-Him on his machine looks lame
-Other characters around him making far more impact

...............Though the show has only begun. Maybe he'll improve later on and do something to stand out a bit more.

It's the same seiyuu that does the voice of Banagher Links in Gundam Unicorn, and quite a young seiyuu a that he is only 20 years old. His name is Kōki Uchiyama.

-voice is a bit wimpy.
-He has more backbone than other harem protaganists
-im guessing his machine improves later, Im guessing this from the ep1 prologue with the fight where he looked bad ass.
and this
Spoiler for him:

-True i haven't gotten much "vibe" from his character. Yet.

I don't think it was his sister, it's said that the japanese governement was providing him with an IS to collect data.

still, the berserker configuration has a lot left to be desired...

they could just put a close range shotgun (in combat, tho melee is very effective close range, a shotgun does wonders as well) or a rapid fire SMG to compensate for when he's outgunned.

i think the IS itself customized it to that configuration because it felt that it suited Ichika. Afterall it was mentioned that a IS is almost living and learns and grows based upon the pilot. If it felt that Ichika was fit for sniping it might have changed to that mode instead.

That's how I understood it as well. An IS evolves and adapts according to its pilot's needs and wishes.

I got a question for the LN readers. Are they overplaying his denseness when it comes to the females in the anime vs his LN counterpart? I thought I read somewhere in here about that, but can't find the post now...

Yeah Ichika's dense. The anime seems to overemphasize this point though.

Those normal sue methods don't work anymore! He is fully used to seeing sexy girls in what is supposed to be a 'training suit', not to mention the girls craze. So what does he need to start thinking? Hah, as if that'd ever happen... but I still think it's essential for him to see some naked bodies a la "fukou da!" Maybe then he'll find someone he likes, at least on the superficial side?

Well he could test all the girls' lap pillows. Or maybe even have his roommate become his dakimakura when he sleeps.......

He deserves a thousand smacks on his head for missing TWICE what Houki was trying to convey him, and for totally missing the point of his promise with Rin.

Maybe it's the "just friends" syndrome...
