by the way, tatenashi is the first name, I think
Tatenashi is the first name. Last name is Sarashiki. It's Sarashiki Kanzashi for the little sister.

Edit : you can read the first 26 page on the MF Bunko site. Nothing interesting happened beside the harem antique and Sarashiki onee-san teasing Ichika(which is a little disappointing since 26 pages is basically 10% of the whole novel :P)

based on my Level 1 Japanese Language Understanding, it's basically about the BD Release.

Google may help.

BD sales of Infinite Stratos sell total 22,000, marking 6th animation series to be listed 1st place in Oricon chart followed by Bakemonogatari, Macross F, K-On, Code Geass and Angel Beats. Including DVD sales of 7,794, it is almost 30,000 sales.

I saw a lot of people blaming Japan's bad taste. However, if you actually read 2ch, you will find how much Japanese otakus are actually in the same boat as us, questioning 'why this thing sells this much?'. Even for them, 30,000 is a bit over-kill. "IS is absurd, ridiculous, moe-fested, doesn't make any sense, polluted by cliche+forgettable characters, and has absolutely no merit of being unique, interesting series".
Though, I don't know. But it probably looks a lot like this.

I was confused for a moment, since level 1 is the highest level in JLPT.

And there's a short synopsis regarding what's the story on IS. Well, definitely can't underestimate the power of hardcore otaku. I mean, I know it will sell pretty good because of moe factor, I didn't expect it to sell this well. I personally am very disappointed with the anime because of the number of important plot detail they left out.

I just hope the LN author won't think "Oh, only moe without plot works, let's cut out the small remaining plot in the story too."

Just wait until volume 3 when it's focused on Charlotte...

Why I think it's popular? It's just enjoyable I guess. Not trying to be a DEEP or GRIMDARK anime is nice sometimes. I needed a harem-hijinks series and I got one in a classical sense.

I'm currently reading the partial translation of the light novels on Baka tsuki. Is there a better web site to read these light novels?

I'm glad it's selling so well. While the anime had it's flaws and and bad points, after seeing it get a lot of needless bashing on this forum, it's nice to see that it's doing well.

You know. No matter how bad the anime is, the result was turned out to be in the opposite of bad. Even boost the LN sales. Shocking isn't it?

It was already discussed a several pages ago. You could try to find it. Otherwise go to the weapon and tech thread to look for answer.

Speaking of stupid questions. Iv always wondered if there has bin an actual explanation on why Ichika can pilot IS? And was the incident with Ichika kidnapping during Chifuyu 2nd IS International Fighting Tournament, ever formly explained? were they just trying to sabotage Chifuyu´s victory or was there a bigger picture too it? like Ichika´s IS piloting ability? I havent read the LN and not really planning since im more of a manga kinda guy, but still like to hear spoilers from the LN to motivate me on future events. Just knowing can make you feeling alot better sometimes :P

My wild theory as a non-reader:

Spoiler:

So yeah, wild theory is wild... Unlike a lot of people in this thread, I only have a limited amount of info to formulate such a guess.

To Wargumm1i.

Tabane wanted Houki to be happy, and thus wanted Ichika to be with Houki. So she had planned for an IS to look like it had reacted with Ichika via an "accident". The surprising thing was that he actually did activate it on his own. There are two theories that work with the right situation and plot, and the third just works.

1) Assuming that Chifuyuu was the White Knight (and as such the first IS pilot ever), than that means that her DNA must have been copied within the IS Core 001. Every IS core after that were just copies of that core (core 001). Thus the information of Chifuyuu's DNA was given to all of these cores. This explains why only women can use it (Chifuyuu's DNA was that of a woman's), and also why Ichikia can use it (because he is her sister and has nearly identical DNA).

This theory only works if we assume that Chifuyuu was the White Knight, and actually is Ichika's birth sister.

2) The second theory is a bit abstract, but I personally find it to be very interesting. Some one on these forums suspected that Tabane made the IS out of lonliness and nothing to do. So she tried to build a companion. The birth of the IS (also explains why IS evolve to match their pilots-they have their own artifical soul, complements of Tabane). Anyway the person who made this theory suspected that while Tabane was building the first IS Will they give us teh

she poured all of her wants of what a perfect companion would be, so the IS (having a soul of sorts) changed itself to fit her personality and wants into that first core 001. As I said earlier rest of the cores were copies of 001, so they all had Tabane's wants. No man could use it for it didn't fit Tabane's wishes. Obliviously Ichika can use an IS for he kind of is the "companion" of Tabane's wants per se (come on people he has a harem!). For those wondering why girls can use the IS, it's because all girls under the surface have the same wants, those with the most similar wants have a higher synch rate with the IS core.

3) He's just a girl.

He's just a girl? Did your spelling go wrong or something?
