Not making excuses for the author, but that's just a habit for most other VNs, and considering that it's mostly about the main guy getting a girlfriend while the secondary folks will be lucky to even get one girlfriend. And yeah, everyone hates Ichika for having a harem that he's completely stupid to realize even though they're just 3mm away from his nose.

"Uncle, give us a game for three."

"Oh? You're holding flowers on both hands? How envious. Okay, no discount then!"

"Huuh? Don't say that. Give me a discount! At least to the girls."

"Gahahahah. I humbly refuse."

The boss of the shooting stall gave such a casual smile as he said that. He had a white T-shirt over his tanned body, and the muscles on his arms and shoulders could be seen. Ichika felt that he was nice, and so paid for all three of them.

"Thanks...oh, kid, you have some attitude there. Brats nowadays hardly pay for the girls."

"Yeah! So give me a discount—"

"I refuse. A popular guy's an enemy of all men! Gahahaha!!!"

I still get the feeling that he won't be choosing anyone by the end of the series and end up having to marry all of them due to some contrived reason.

I got that impression from the afterword, so now that you asked me, I just went to check.

He used to work at the eroge-making company Alice Soft. He quit in 2007 before writing IS in 2009. Keep in mind that he's only 29 years old.

Spoiler for lol:


And I don't think Tabane is shipping her sister with Ichika. So many times she put both of them and surrounding people in danger, and if Tabane is indeed part of the Textile Society.....And IMO, the way Chifuyu worded about Akatsubaki made it sound like both Byaku Shiki and Akatsubaki are not originally meant for Ichika and Houki

It seems like Cecilia, Laura, and Ichika have some karma with Madoka, so yeah, expect her to join the harem next

CRACKPOTTHEORYTIME~!!!!!!


Wait wait wait, I'm not sure where I heard this,
but I do remember this one crackpot-theory:


(justforlulz)

1. Tabane sends super-unmanned IS to fight Ichika.
2. Fight makes [Byakushiki] stronger.
3. Tabane sends [Silverio Gospel] amok.
4. Introduces [Akatsubaki].
5. Puts [Akatsubaki] in mission to stop Gospel.
6. Ichika almost gets killed.
7. Second shift. ([Byakushiki] becomes stronger)
8. Gospel defeated.
9. Data collected.
10. Houki masters Kenran Butou. (Also gets super-weapon)
11. Tabane needs to test them out. (And look for 'something')
12. More super-drones.
13. Data collected.
14. Now knows where that 'something' is.

Now, the punchline of this crackpot-theory is that maybe
just maybe, Tabane wants to make [Byakushiki] and [Akatsubaki]
as perfect as possible before 'collecting' them and 'combining'
them along with that 'something'.

We all know [Akatsubaki] makes energy, and [Byakushiki] uses it up,
the only missing link being that we don't yet know the abilities
of that 'something'.


That something ofcourse, being [Kure Zakura].

If Ichika ends up losing all of his girls, then maybe the best partner for him is a female personfication of Byaku shiki. xD

Seeing what happened in volume 3 chapter 4, maybe you can think the white would introduce herself as '私はガンダムだインフィニットストラトスだ'

IMO it's originally meant for Chifuyu and her to-be-boyfriend (who ever it is)
But Chifuyu already hate her, so Shirogfki turned to Byakushiki, may be thinking the pilot still have Orimura for their family name

Gundam 00 parody, something that the protagonist (Setsuna) always say:

"I am a Gundam (in this case, it's infinite stratos) Infinite Stratos"

The feelings you get when your mother who was talking with her long lost friend asked you to make some tea, and when you bring it over, you see they're laughing together for reasons you don't know (feel like they're talking something bad about you behind your back)

I am fairly new when it comes to anime but from what i have observed so far they would be mad not to do another series of something which has sold 20k+ BDs every volume (they being 8-bit and the author).

Personally i can see a new series announcement happening after the OVA release but i guess you are kinda right to be skeptical, the world isn't always clear cut

Remind you that IS took a great boost with its anime...

Somehow, I remember Ichika being cooler on the cover than in the plot.
