quick summary

Spoiler for Volume 5:


I omitted details regarding the harem antics and battle, and I'm may be wrong for the Romanization, as I kinda lose the steam as I typed. I apologized in advance. Some points that I like to note
- I have to admit, the first time I heard about Katar/Katara was when 00 Gundam 7-Sword was introduced (like 2-3 years ago?)
- The one that planned the infiltration? May be it wasn't Squall, and certainly wasn't M.
- 素体 (Sotai) is translated as "Prime Field", but I remembered that the subtitle for VOTOMS used "Prototype" for Fyana . So I could be wrong about this.
- I like it when Tatenashi played with her folding fan
- In this volume the society is not called as Phantom Task, but 亡国機業 (Boukoku Kigyou = Fallen Country Machine/Textile Industry?)

And ganbatte, Teh_Ping

The more I read (and re-read) IS, the more I want the next volume to come out, dammit. I'm waiting for:

- Ichika "man-ing up" regarding his skills, and telling everybody to piss off because he has more important issues (Madoka + Chifuyu) to take care of than everybody antics (the harem getting angry at him for being a blockhead...girls, you fell in love with a blockhead, you signed for that crap, DEAL WITH IT INSTEAD OF GETTING ANGRY)

- If there is a relationship between Tabane and Phantom Task

Tabane is the IS creator..so to put it simply...Tabane is God to whomever use IS and can destroy it whenever she want, or make some 'interesting' scenario like "IS core jammer" ability inside her Mobile IS Lab.
Phantom Task may be want to use her like that
================================================== ========
Tabane: "hmm... I feel like play hide and seek now" *press the mystery button*
{next minutes, all IS core all over the globe froze, till it become useless}
[next week all people in the worlds try to find her after some internet message on bulletin board announce the starting of ridiculus game "Shinono Tabane-san where are U?" ]

ref:Scooby Doo where are U?

THanks. Can someone repost the author's twitter link, so that MAYBE we can get some sort of an update on the next volume.

Looks like Dan's finally getting lucky. It can't just be Ichika who has a chance at romance. LET OTHERS GET A SHOT

If there is, that will make Houki and Ichika a star-crossed lovers. Ichika dreaming about a priestess (referencing vol 4) is similar to Houki's dream about a prince in vol 7 (may be referencing to Ichika in vol 5). Tanabata indeed

There are. They are generally refered to as the beta couple

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BetaCouple

Negima has a lesbian variety . One of the routes in Clannad also has one of these.

I forgot to mention this. In vol 5, one of the reason for Cecilia is at the Academy is to gather data regarding the BT Weapon. She is the pilot with the highest aptitude A for BT weapon. No wonder she can recreate the feat by Silent Zephyr pilot, like in vol 6 (bending beam)

That's more like it, I think . I hope it is not "Textile" because Ori "織" from Orimura "織斑" means "Fabric" , and Orihime (Tanabata) was a weaver

I've just thought of a way in which Ichika can end up with all the girls, without creating a Harem (of course, it would be too troble for the author, so it will never happen):

Diverging timelines...

I know, its lame, but hey, it worked with Haruhi (expect that in IS case, the timelines should not converge at some point)
