Ceceilia needs to master using her gun and Blue Tears simultaneously.
Inertia Canceler is unlikely to cover hemisphere to sphere range.

It's the same with Laura - Laura's been trained by Chifuyuu, and her AIC is one helluva defense - also note that she's dominating the fight and tanking everything they throw at her. Remember also that these girls are civillians, and aren't used to thinking militarily, while Laura is apparently a member of the Bundesheer.

Against the rest of the civillian girls, Cecilia and Rin are better pilots. That doesn't mean much against Laura, however.

It's like comparing the skillset between a civillian chopper pilot and an Apache pilots.
Rin kept using her Dragon Canon instead of her swords, despite the former not working. Cecilia kept missing her target, despite Laura not moving around much. She also got too close - what's the point of being a sniper if you're not going to fight at range?

It was mostly because Cecilia and Rin were not clear in thought when fighting and were more outraged and thinking of what Laura did to Ichika (big slap) (and the constant hate) so they just went at it.

Of course if Cecilia concentrated a bit more, she can use multiple attacking points with her Blue Tears like eiyuu99 said, Laura might not be able to defend herself in a sphere-like way against attacks from all sides.

The drawback of the AIC is that it also affects the hand that casts it, meaning that with the AIC active, Laura is rooted to the spot. She adapted by using Rin as a projectile.

Also, her dodging Blue Tears shots might be interpretted to mean that her shield cannot stop attacks with no mass, ie, beams.

Still, one does question the designers' idea for not including beam weaponry on a machine who's shield screws anything with mass.

Either way, I bet Laura's Second Shift turns her into Accelerator.

9 outta 10 just because of one girl. I sincerely hope they don't dumb her down once another girl's arc starts. You don't have to turn her into a zombie fangirl with a bitchy attitude... just give the other girl that focus crap while retaining her normal behavior. Although every other girl so far was a bitch to begin with so Charlotte can't possibly end up as bad as they are.

And please hell no to a harem end. When a girl is clearly that much more deserving than every other one, she shouldn't be ripped off of. And before you point out the German bitch, she has a running mouth and a hot temper, it's just like Chifuyu said, she is just a kid who thinks she is important. There's no way she is going to have as much depth as Charlotte although I do admit that Charlotte's plot device was very generic as well. I don't see the Laura girl topping Charlotte and in case she does turn out to not be rotten material like the rest then I hope she gets her yuri wish fulfilled while I see Charlotte get what she deserves.

To everyone here... Laura was forced to dodge Blue Tear's beam stuff. The only thing she tanked was Rin's impact cannon, that compresses and uses air as power. AIC being AIC, it only stops massese, thus why Yukihura was stuck in place, thus why she stopped all the bullets coming from Charlotte, thus why Rin's weapons were stopped (she uses mass). The only weapons that could go through were Cecilia's (you see Laura clearly making maneuvers to dodge the blasts).

Of course, plot being plot, Lin had to be the one always ending up being able to hit Laura, and Cecilia mostly just sat back and didn't do much, until Rin was sent flying away. Then, yes, there's Laura's training.

But now... seeing the AIC stop the bullets..... why must I feel the need to post... THIS:



Time to go get some shooping done on Laura.

ZA WARUDO!

Anyone notice that as girls are added to the ED harem, the new one is in 'first place', while the rest are in the order introduced (and therefore, Houki is always in second)?

Why are Ichika/Charles on the N.3 Seed fighting N.2 seed Laura/Houki........when N.1 seed is going directly to second round without a fight , just like n14 seed.
Those aren't seeds, just placements. (After all, in a fourteen member field, Seeds 1 and 2 would pass on and play the winners of 8 vs 9 and 7 vs 10 respectively) Since the first-years haven't fought much, I doubt there's enough known about how good they are to seed them in the first place. Seeding might be done in the Second-year and/or Third-year tourneys though.

Houki's the Unlucky Childhood Friend.

This is because the Final Girl who'll win will be Chifu-

Most of us here have been oogling on Ichika x Charles quite a bit. I predict in the next 2 eps its Laura's turn becuase she's bound to melt on Ichika sooner or later. However Charles will still remain top spot due to her womanly, gentle, bashful and patient nature. Qualities that seems to lack on the other rather agressive haremettes.

The ultimate Tsundere would be most likely Laura instead of Houki though.

Maybe to use it to help Houki's mellowing be believable? I dunno. But I agree.

Houki's inferiority complex has gotta be a plot point later.

in my opinion Laura can't be a tsundere, she will be more like unable to express her feelings due to being in military and lack of social skills unlike Rin, who is more like a tsundere, keeps on denying her feelings for Ichika

I give her high chances of being a masochist. All that slapping and beating the shit out of everyone is just her way of showing love.

I think "shy girl" would be fine... because she can't/afraid to express her feelings to ichika

Umů yes you're right; since she's inflicting it on others, rather then herself, it's sadism. thanks for the correction.

She could still be an M. Maybe she's looking for someone to punish her.

She must be a hardcore masochist after what she did with Cecilia and Rin... Expecting a very, very severe punishment..

Well for the record Chifuyu does like pounding her students on the head.
