Hopefully this will be translated by the time Infinite Stratos 2 shows. People are expecting it to air this Fall also. Is Teh_Ping the only one who translates the light novels?

It's weird that "Tatenashi"/"Shieldless" is the name of an armor.

Actually no, it's called so because it's believed that no shield is required when wearing that armour.

Oh ok, thank you for the clarification.

Makes sense given Mysterious Lady's water clone capabilities.

I wonder if it's coincidence or if Izuru Yumizuru intended for her 2 names to contrast each other (Tatenashi:Armor::Katana:Sword).

Ping or Kuroi probably can give better answer, they seen the Kanji.

The novel just out, probably more people will join.

That said, Ping himself apparently has... ah, difficulties with it.

Is volume 8 similar to the other volumes with the writing style? In terms of story, characters and development, is it a step up or step down when compared to previous volumes?

Apparently more ecchi and fast paced, at least

Did anyone notice that there seems to be a trend with the members of Ichika's harem. They all seem to have sad/tragic backgrounds.

Houki- Separated from childhood friend due to her sister
Cecilia- Parents didn't get along then died in an accident
Rin- Parents divorced
Charlotte- Mother died, Unwanted by father
Laura- Child super soldier
Kanzashi- Inferiority complex
Tatenashi- Parents are dead (This is just my speculation)

Is it possible that the parents of the Sarashiki sisters are dead? Tatenashi herself did say that she is the current head and 17th gen. of the Sarashiki family. That would mean that she would have to currently be the eldest in the family, right?

You'll notice that in every harem.

It's common for harem members to have sad backstories? The only other anime I know that involves these kinds backstories are The World God Only Knows and Bakemonogatari (Didn't watch much of this one though). Also, what are the chances that my speculation is correct?

Rate the happy meter:

Clannad: nope
Shuffle: nope
Love hina: pretty sure that's a no
Negima: might be a unique case

We never actually confirmed if Tatenashi's parents are dead. Just because she's the leader doesn't mean her parents are dead; many parents have their kids lead from a young age and step in only when they need help.

That and Kanzashi's issues would look REALLY petty if that was the case:/ Her parents are dead, her sister has to step up.....and she whines about being inferior? That's really bad.

You have a point but I've never watched those anime. My idea of a harem anime is something similar to Infinite Stratos and Hayate no Gotoku. I guess I'm not that used to the genre yet.
