I think the new boy in class is a girl. Not a manga reader, so I don't know further than the anime. Still, I'm calling Charles a Charotte.

Here I was thinking Ichika wasn't a dense idiot when it comes to the girls. I punch myself for even thinking it possible...

Also I don't care what anyone says, I wouldn't go around holding hands with a guy like that even in an escape attempt. Your dudes and it's every man for himself type of thing. Ichika lost a few man points with that scene...

Sigh. When this anime first started had such hopes for Ichika. He came off like he wasn't going to be the typical Harem Leader.....and oblivious airheaded idiot he only has morals -.- beyond let down there. While the girls like Houki and Rin are making some actual moves this idiot goes and ruins it.

>< Its like a swift kick to the nads

quoting ichika

"thinking would be pointless"

I think this statement sums up his whole character.

He's being Captain Obvious there, because he's the type who'd act first and think later.

Charles is obviously a girl...them hips. voice..

And even chest-wise even in regular clothing is a give-away. Even general mannerisms is feminine. Has to be the worst attempt of a girl pretending to be a girl ever...

Eye-patch girl, not a fan...

How did Ichika get on top of the teacher? Houki dominated the other girls in this episode!

I'm inclined to believe Charles is a girl at the moment. But I'll still think there's a chance that it could be a really shy guy with a crush on Ichika.

I can say it a million times: Ichika is a freaking moron. I like how the bromantic foil even pointed that out. "You must act like that at school, too."

This episode had the worst scene in the anime yet. Yamada-sensei crash-landing on Ichika and getting her boobs in his face without injuring him was bad and trite enough. Cecilia and Rin using their IS' to deliberately assault an unarmed Ichika and almost killing him while doing so had me staring at the screen with a horrified grimace. Was that supposed to be funny? I don't condone heroic characters using violence to release their raging hormones, but this was taken way too far. And the teachers just shrug it off as if it was harmless bickering!

Aside from that painful scene, this was a pretty dull, harmless episode, which is quite typical for this show and will keep me from dropping this. I need some completed anime to fill up the "1-3 out of 10" ratings on my anime list anyway.

Charles is so obviously a girl that it would be awesome if he really turned out to be a guy. Of course "he" is cute enough I wouldn't mind if he was really a girl too ^_~

as for Laura, it'd be nice if we had a character who's priorities wern't just ichika, whom I am really not sure why some of those girls are attracted too.

C-Could it be that Ichika is actually gay?
The poor girls.

I know it's been mentioned, and I'm sorry for killing a catgirl, but I'd like to know how sensei's able to fall directly on a boy and land under him.

Ichika is the classic male stereotype gay in the harem genre, he is surrounded by girls but he don't understand their feelings and don't care. Clichè and i really hate him but unfortunately is the main character so we have to deal with him till the end.

Charles... CHARLES!!!! *looks around* nevermind.

So yeah, Houki gets the win this episode. I wish her even more win in her future endeavours.
The Part where the two ladies were shooting Ichika was pretty hilarious for me. Now this loads Rin and Cecilia in the same stupid boat as Houki, which makes em all equal (Houki being less at fault for running on a battlefield with a few meters of cloth as protection).

THE WIND IS STRONG WITH MY SHIP!

So far:

- Ichika = Freedom/Wing Custom Expy with one sword
- Cecilia = Strike Freedom expy with missile launchers instead of railguns and a perma combined gun
- Rin = Some sort of cross between Nadleeh (shoulder cannons) and Nataku (Double edged lance), although both are still more badass than the IS
- Charles = Looking from the ep preview, can't say much, but first thing that jumped on my head was... "BUMBLE BEE!"
- Houki = No IS yet...
Spoiler for Potential Future Ruiner:


Oh. The sensei is... LOCKON-STRATOS / DYNAMES!

Ichika's more gay than straight. Fuhnz. Also, His reaction to Houki's declaration is kinda meh... What will he think about that?
