After all, he is one of a kind who can operate a mecha strictly suited for girls. The closest comparison would be wearing a pair of woman shoes and looking good in them. Ladies dig that.

Ichika is alright!
Spoiler for Heh...:


But we'll have to give it to Chifuyu. One would like to be her sister-in-law another feels Ichika isn't worthy to be her sibling.

Chifuyu has pretty much a Oneesama status in IS Academy that it eclipses Ichika being a harem magnet.

Haak! Dude! Charle is a girl!!

XXY Chromosome perhaps? That would mean no children with Houki though.

No... Just an unfortunate pettanko whom a series of unfortunate yet wacky coincidences have conspired to make everyone mistake for a guy.

(Well, I say pettanko, but she's really pretty butch. I blame her food habits. Probably full of hormones.)

Still no children with Houki, though.

My take: Ichika has a sister-complex and hence his blackhole-disorder.

Pretty sure it's too late for him to grow a vagina.

Wrong, guys. Ichika is a Kyubei. Dense and unchanging expressions with only few exceptions. And he draws in girls. Oh, and his eyes are slightly red.

One thing that bothers me about episode 5 is:

Why did Cecilia offered Ichika sandwiches instead of pure British lunch meals like Indian Curry or Fish & Chips?

If i were a British expat living in an Asian country like Japan that loves curry, the one meal i would totally offer to my colleagues would be....curry. Add to the fact that Japanese people tend to enjoy fish, i would certainly cook fish & chips.

But then again, most anime writers don't watch Red Dwarf or British comedies in general.

It could be cause she sucks at cooking and sandwiches are the easiest to make - even though they ended up being terrible anyway

Well, she is an ojou-sama. She could have just hired Gordon Ramsay to teach her how to cook Chicken Tikka Masala in order to impress Ichika.

After all, Aren't those what most rich British people do?*

*(based on my observations from British tabloids)

He is practically begging for a give-me-all-u-got treatment. No wonder his harem is ever so growing.

I guess we will call it an exception to the norm.

Ok fine whatever I would gladly tap that if Ichika was really a girl.

Because those are awfully proletarian choices my dear fellow.

Sandwiches are what one has when one has tea with the Queen.

Very entertaining episode

It's interesting how reverse trap Charles can get away as a boy, especially in that skintight suit and behaving like a girl - but that's probably wishful thinking on the side of the girls, which gets them to ignore the blatantly obvious because they don't want to see it

Houki now gets more courageous and asks Ichika out for dinner. Ichika, being as uber-dense as ever, doesn't notice it at all and invites others. However, Houki can still score by feeding him

Ichika is quite friendly around Charles, but not that much that you could say he's gay.
There's also a definite proof that he isn't gay: when the green-haired sensei lands on him, he gets his hand on her boobs and is quite unwilling to take it away again. He only does take it away when the other girls get really angry at him and start attacking
This got me to another speculation that no one has done so far: obviously Chifuyu onee-chan has left a strong impression on him. It could've resulted in him having the hots for women of his sister's and the green-haired sensei's age, while at the same time he doesn't care for girls of his own age and is totally oblivious to them.

Finally, Laura - a very boyish girl wearing a male uniform. She would've no problems to pass for a boy, if she wanted, quite unlike Charles.
Ichika gets slapped by her seemingly out of the blue, very interesting... we'll probably see the reason later.

I love how they made the German Laura all Militant lol. I think someone has a little animosity towards a little brother or a certain teacher. That was some full blown hate, she didnt even take her seat before she pimped slapped him. I actually thought she was going to challenge him to a duel but then i noticed no glove was involved. Im hoping that smack also jolts something in his head making him at least somewhat more interesting than he is now. Although, its a fun series Ichika quite frankly is boring not the worst iv ever seen but giving him a little more flare would bring things together a bit at least for me.
