In Ep 8, Laura (thanks to her lack of understanding) declared Ichika is her bride.

Well I guess this proves that the only difference between a respected genius or international criminal is how the world looks at it. The first incident that Tabane likely started could have cost a lot of lives and thankfully didn't. Then here she ruins other countries property and nearly gets people killed again so her sister can have a fancy debut. The world better step up before another one of her stunts really causes a disaster.

Well a normal harem end. The first girl on the scene gets a special moment, the rest of the girls hover in rage, and the series ends with Ichika likely not having a clue what is going on.

hmm

how should I say this, typical harem fare, comparable to the empty calories you get from drinking soda or eating junk food: while it is enjoyable, still it does nothing good for you.

in the end, I don't know why i watched the whole series, maybe its the animation, or the promise of an epic fight(s) in the first episode, still, i didn't regret it.

Oh dear, I think Cecilia finally snapped.

1. Point-blank laser blast! Aiming for a headshot too.
2. THAT EVIL LAUGH

Can't say he doesn't deserve it though.

Kinda surprised about two things:
- the name change. Where did that come from?
- I thought Ichika's IS' powerup would make it more of what it was. Faster, stronger. Instead, it added a shield. I guess it resigned itself to Ichika not being much good with an all-offensive suit.

Well that was disappointing, they wrapped up things faster in the anime than in the LN with Houki end, the mecha animation was good but the plot and mecha musume idea are all out of place...still the character designs are great in this series

The machine probably realized that even if it made Ichika faster and stronger his opponents would still be able to hit him since he doesn't seem to know how to dodge.

Even with the shield he still was running low on power and getting hit.

Actually if you noticed it also added a ranged attack, he was shooting a beam from the hand before he activated the shield.

About what I expected.. this series should have properly been 24 episodes and going to 12 really cut out a lot of character development. Of course the LN themselves are not bastions of originally, but its still pulled off a lot better than the anime.

BTW Ichika is not even close to the worst male harem lead. 9/10 harem leads are single celled organisms with not a redeeming feature among them.

I would say Ichika is the most frustrating male lead in awhile because his character has so much potential to be great, but in the anime they emasculate him to such a degree that its makes you want to screem.

Ichika isn't the worst because it was made into jokes so you can laugh at. At least, I don't think you were meant to take him seriously. Sure there were times where it was more frustrating than funny, but no where near as frustrating as Natsuru.

Damn that was some intense mecha action. Gorgeous backdrops, too.

Pretty standard harem ending (not complaining). Nice bit o' fanservice there too...

Dissapointing on last episode...
So much for the latest generation IS that being created and tuned by the IS Creator herself...
Can't even handle the 3rd generation prototype IS...


And the ending is quite bland...
Not feeling any spesial feel, except that Houki is more getting honest with herself...

That's more because of Houki being a bad pilot than anything else. She barely had the aptitude to enroll in the school, likely only got in because Tabane is her sister.

So is there anything worthwhile with Char in this episode? if so, I might just watched it. Looking through the comments, I just glad that at least Char doesnt end up with that idiot for her sake, even if I am a Char's supporter.
