also, yea Ichika's IS needs a bigger battery.
Everyone else seems to be 600+. Houki's max was 900. and yet Ichika tops off max at 400. And its suppose to be a unit that directly uses its energy into its atks and shields -_-
I think i heard Tabane made Byakushiki. If that is the case I'm willing to bet she made it low on purpose so that ichika would be reliant on Aka-Tsubaki's energy recharge in battle.

Wouldn't "one-off" just mean she gets one full charge when she ostensibly goes empty? I don't think anyone mentioned unlimited energy.

Overall I'll give it an 8. Yes, another silly harem but good artwork and cute girls. Entertaining for the eye at least. And I confess: big Houki fan so I liked the ending. And there have been a LOT worse than Ichika. At least he manned up and fought. I would be happy to see a second season but it needs a PURPOSE. They pilot the IS just in case the occasional IS goes berserk? What is the point? Did I miss it?

Didn't Ichika go buy something at the jewelery shop?

The show didn't explain it but a one-off ability means something that is unique to the IS / Pilot combo and pretty much amazing. Houki's is energy recharge and Ichika's is the instant kill sword.

Houki's one off ability is not energy recharge... It's energy multiplier. Basically she can generate energy many times more than her original energy supply when she's using the one off ability. Her IS is designed with this one off ability as the basis, that's why its energy usage is so big and it has the ability to link with other IS to give the other IS energy.

In practice isn't it pretty much the same thing? Her IS generates energy which she can use to recharge other IS by giving them that energy.

no no, she's not only refill her energy, but multiplying it, which make the IS able to fully use all her thruster available for long enough time. Basically, aka-tsubaki is very inefficient in terms of power usage, so much that it can't hold out using all of it's thruster without using her one-off ability. Basically, without utilizing the one-off ability, even with full energy, it can't maintain max speed for long enough period to be useful.

In other words, without the one off ability, aka-tsubaki is also a defect unit just like Byaku-shiki in Reiryaku Byakuya mode, high spec and overpowered without enough energy to fully used it.

How do you multiply energy? Isn't that a complete violation of the First law of Thermodynamics?

I'm just gonna go ahead and say it was Spiral energy.

Lol. you're expecting a magic machine that can fly and make their weapon vanish and appear as they please to follow law of Thermodynamics?

Well shit, If Tabane has discovered how to break the laws of thermodynamics, then she really just might be a genius. Except that rather than using this technological breakthrough to say, generate an infinitely renewable clean energy source, she uses it to make giant robots for kids to play sports in. trollface.jpg

Did someone say multiplying energy? ( ◕ ‿‿ ◕ )

But... but... making robot has always been a mad scientist's dream. Just ask those super robot professors that decide to make a giant gattai robot instead of make use of all those energy and technology :P.

Well, back to the topic though, try not to think too much about about the physics behind the technology in this series. Just think of it as a mad genius scientist can make anything he/she wants no matter what the law of universe states.

Byakushiki. They're all Byakushiki.

Not to say Bleach was ripped off (especially as I'm not sure it would have been the first to do that anyway...):

Of course, Houki's final scene is in a bikini. Surprise!

The girl of Ichika's fantasy is probably Byakushiki... she was holding the Byakuya sword, clad in white armor. Shinonono Tabane (the one who put her sister's life at risk) did say Byakushiki has a will of its own, so in retrospect, her statement would support this interpretation.

Overall, all I really wanted to see was giant laser beams, swarming bullet barrages, and close sword combat. I got what I wanted. The weakest part was all the mushy stuff. Random girl (Byakushiki) appears and asks Ichika if he wants powah. Ichika responds "fight the powah!"

Then he comes to Houki. This is how it should have happened.

Ichika: Hey, I know today is your birthday, so...
Houki: What the hell are you doing here!
Ichika: Um... I came to help...
Houki: Well, you're doing an awful job. While you're busy yapping away with me, our comrades are getting shot out of the sky!
Ichika: Err... but I have your ribbon here...
Houki: Do I look like I care about some ribbon right now? You know, maybe I would... if I weren't lying on a rock with my IS toasted!
Ichika: Y-You're so mean!!! WAAHHHH!!
Houki: Get out of my damn sight.
