Why is it in Italian?
Is an Italian pilot ever shown?

I have a question. What happened during the first time Ichika activated an IS during the opening cerimony? He should be doing an exam for another school, not fo the IS Academy.

P.S.
BTW, I'm getting lazy at posting in this thread, partly due to the beginning of open-beta period for Tera, a new MMORPG which is gaining popularity here (In Korea)

Ehhh just wondering, but where did you get this? Or this only work for pilot skills or pilot+IS?

Because I though Charlotte had the most gimped IS of the group, and Byakku Shiki`s was so overpower that he was on par with Laura.

It's from the latest training battle. Laura is without a doubt the strongest between the 1st year, and Tatenashi is definitely the strongest in the academy(not including the teacher of course).

Charlotte is not on par with Laura yet, and yes her IS is outdated. She's considered one of the more skilled one though, for her versatility and she can do on-battlefield-energy-charge(sorry, I never remember a move name that well, it's a same skill that Houki's IS designed to do).

Houki is considered one of the more weak one piloting skill wise, but her IS offset her lack of skill and experience.

Cecilia is quite skilled, and the reason she's put that down in the list is because Ichika's IS special ability make her the only one unable to beat Ichika. In a more general battle though, Cecilia probably ranked higher than Ichika.

Ichika, is kind of an unknown factor in battle. His battle style of charging head first using his IS is best when complimented with a partner and he tends to do better when the battle is heating up or when he has "reason" to fight. His lack of skill is pretty glaring, although he's a very fast learner(Tatenashi noted that Ichika can learn a new skill astoundingly quick when she's training him).

The feeling i get from just reading the first 4 volumes is that Ichika does bets in teams. Houki's IS is pretty much designed to support him yet a better result could be achieved if he paired up with Charlotte, since the two trained together for so long that Charlotte knows exactly what to do to allow Ichika close in with even a far superior the enemy to do his thing.
