Sorry, I meant moral qualms. Stupid IPhone auto corrects too much. Anyway, this'll lead to some awkwardness with Kaura later since he stacks her (Kick her in the stomach or legs) before getting Cecilia.

@'Senpai - Once a rep candidate graduates, do they to college?

I don't know in case of canon, but if they want to switch career path, I assume they would have to.

@ Senpai - Are ISA teachers specialized or something? I assune that they don't get there from regular teaching courses.

Side note - Did you get my PM?

Nope, some still need to specialize in something relative common like math or stuff, as you know, it's just happen that class 1-A's Homeroom teacher is the one specialized in the field of I.S.

After all, it's described as High school + I.S. related education and training.

Yeah I got it, I'd say you can be at ease and just concentrate with the current batch. Besides, I still have much to add.

Also, ti was hilarious to find that the resident pettanko Rin is pretty much normal (if a little flat) when blend with common teenagers such as Ran or other I.S.A. student, as Ichika realized, he just happen to accustomed with big-breasted girls

@ Senpai - It seems that "being very attractive" is a perquisite to being an IS rep Is there an age requirement to being a rep candidate?

I dunno, In Sacred twins, it's being 12 years old minimum, and that's already pushing, as Charles noted in his introductory scene about the revealed scandal where in German, training as I.S. pilot is began at the age of 10. Both Charles and Cecilia started their training at the age of 13.

Maybe not every country, it was mentioned that there's 21 country selection in ISVS game Dan have, excluding Japan. That makes roughly 22 countries who actually have an I.S. unit, which actually makes sense considering German alone has 10 unit.

Only few select countries has mass production line, even Schwarzer series are mostly limited production (see above).

Less strikingcase in Sacred Twins because miniaturized or even scaled up I.S. frame is used in anything from military to construction work (as normal power armor using alternative power source and control system). Still there's only few countries that mass-produce I.S. frame for common use, them being Japan, USA, Russia, France, and Germany.

No wonder Dunoa'a failing Wasting resources mass producing units while there's like 5-10 cores only in their country.

What do you mean wasting? Their problem is mostly lack of innovation. They do no t want to lose the arms race. Russia admittedly doesn't even have mass production line, but still produce I.S. frame for non-core usage.

As I mentioned, alternative power source and control system. The lacks of core means you need a huge battery pack and home-grade computer for the unit to work, as in, carrying crates around the warehouse

The two stuff mentioned above determines how powerful the unit become.

Then why not focus on that instead of making new units?

The new unit is a symbol of A. technology level and B. power.

Notice that Japan is a small country, but due to their Uchigane being the most produced and used I.S. model to date, so did their mass-produced not-quite-I.S. despite the cost of their unit (Quality over quantity, natch).

Contrast to Russian and their cheap-and-cheerful, simple but reliable frames, and yet they developed esoteric unit like Mysterious Lady, who has the power of CONTROLLING WATER! This is a strategy of dualism, as Russian produce both low end and high end stuff IRL so the market can be broaden.

USA Always ended up with top tier units with expectedly expensive cost, this resulting low production output despite their massive industry. When they switch to moderate approach, they somewhat succeed creating multirole units with reasonable cost.

And France... well, let's say unless they can cause hype by using 3rd Gen, they can say goodbye to international market. Other countries in Europe already knew about this and merged to create Europa Universalis, German went solo but considering their militaristic nature, they managed to get upper hand anyway.

Another thing: It seems that you don't have to be a Russian to be the Russian rep or any combination thereof. Tatenashi may be Half-Russian, but we never get a confirmation. On the other hand, Houki was asked if she got offers to become a rep by any country, implying that anybody can be any rep. Aren't the countries worried of betrayal if they give their foreign tech to unknown foreigners?

Going to fencing class (Awesome), be back in a few hours.

Well, Tatenashi is understandable considering her reputation and family position. And Houki is Houki, considering she has Akatsubaki, and being Tabane sister gave her advantage by default, who WOULDN'T want her?

@ Senpai - Have some time before class:

Ichika as well. They say he's being processed as a rep, but Kanzashi's the Japanese rep already. So who's he gonna represent? I'm just stumped none of he countries get paranoid when there's a so-called arms race/cold war going on.
