The Adam and Eve of IS...?
So does that make Madoka Lilith and Squall is the Serpent?

Then, that kinda leaves Tabane as God.... 0.o....

I guess Tabane will give madoka IS but... she will not harm ichika and chifufu... since tabane once said that she only recognizes 3people in this world... while rest is all the same.... the 3people were Houki, Ichika and Chifuyu... and after vol8 we can add Ku... and maybe madoka to some degree as she has face similar to chifuyu

I dont think that tabane wants to kill chifuyu as she is the only person that she knows for very long time...and both kinda get the other one... if tabane wanted to harm chifuyu she would do something about it...

but it would be intersting if tabane made madoka against Phantom task... as she doesnt have silent zephyr anymore as tabane disatached everything on it :P and wants to make personal is for madoka only... with the thing that madoka will come with her and not make tabane create the is in phantom base

personaly im waiting for moveing the plot around maroka and generally her past along what connects her with ichika (so the orimura past.... parents... how ichika landed in chifuyu's care and no madoka.... and why chifuyu is so silent about talking about the past)

yet I would be glad if madoka developed some interest in ichika...kinda a bro-con to kinda make life harder for other girls... madoka is strong and if she wont allow any other girl around him and will try to repel them it would be fun to watch ^^

Serious Plot? In IS at this point? What are you smoking, and where can I get some?

Considering Vol8's author's afterword, IS as a series is going to downplay the mecha bits and focus more on school life and 'romcom' since the author has gotten tired of the mecha side of things If people want serious plot, they're going to have to write their own -.-

It has a serious plot. It is just buried under a giant amount of fanservice crap and filler. I think.

Izuru is having fun by enjoying his vacation. He delayed the upcoming volume so he could have fun..? Damn. And I thought he changed after all those mess. Looks like Izuru will always be Izuru.

Among who. Those at the academy I believe only ichika knows about M's identity although laura has seen Madoka as for outside the two teammates know her name but probably don't know the connection. I don't remember when he asked chifuyu about madoka if he mentioned she was the pilot of Silent Zephyrus but really its up in the air.

Well there is Ichika (of course), Laura, Tabane, and the members of Phantom Task. Chifuyu inconclusive(When she was asked (by Ichka) about the existence of an younger sister she denies the existence of one and avoids the subject).

He never mentioned that Madoka was pilot of Silent Zephyrus when he spoke to her.

I think Laura will connect the dots about Madoka with both Orimura siblings, but will keep it a secret from them to not damage her relationship with them explain about their family. Asking about their family would really hurt their feelings and damage her relationship. Though talking about Madoka to Ichika would be so-so.

I guess the only one that should tell about madoka is chifuyu herself... since its a family matter in this case orimura family matter so no girl outside of the family should interfare in this...

Ichika might initiate the talk... like he will mention he met a girl named Madoka who looked like chifuyu... that she is the pilot of silent zephyr and that she was the assasin that almost killed him.... maybe this will make chifutu talk about the past

my guess is that she just wants spare ichika the painfull truth that he doesnt remember parents or his past becouse he doesnt have one....that he is a clone she saved from beign killed.... and just wanted ichika to have a normal life as a normal human

so I just hope the author will quit the fanservice for a while and focus more about the story and secrets of orimuras (like why madoka hates chifuyu so much she wants to kill her... or why she wanted to kill ichika "in order to be myself I will kill you now").... or how Tabane knows about madoka at all....

According to the Light Novel, Laura did not get a good look at Madoka... the anime screwed up, making it seem as imposssible to kiss her face

can we actually have the latest news from Izuru's blog? Exactly, what does he say about his status? Is he on vacation/on a break? Or is he under fire from his new company? >_>

Just wondering---in LN-time, technically the characters have not yet finished a year, right? I'm just wodnering because I suddenly realized that if we looked through Volumes 1-8 they've gone from Spring to Summer and possibly Autumn period but have not yet progressed to winter (EG I don't recall any references to Christmas in the LNs--yet). So I'm just wondering overall how long the series has been in equivalent realtime? Maybe 6 to 7 months?

Cannonball Fast could be considered to be the biggest sport event, right? These things usually happened on the late period of a school year, or in celebrate some bigger holiday.

EhEh, I've been following this forum for a long time but I wanted to finish the novels before posting.

I enjoy your comments and arguments a lot : )

And so today, I come to you quite puzzled.
I'm enjoying the series so far but somehow I have this sensation that the whole thing is "progressively" (uhuhuh) getting out of hand.

I'll spare you the "why is volume 8 borderline porn all of a sudden?"
And jump directly to the main course:
The Rawmance!

And what better example to illustrate my worries than Houki...
I, personally root for Charlotte in here (plz don't kill me^^).
HOWEVER I don't dislike Houki (In most anime/manga I actually prefer more girls of her "type"). But somehow in this series I feel sad because I don't see her as a girl. For me she's just a walking plot device...

Let's get this straight; I'm ok if Houki is meant to be the cover girl. It's Izuru's story he can do what he wants. But this is were the problem is IMO. Houki is not the problem; no, the problem is the way Houki is used in the story. The story seems to always follow the same organisation (mostly)
One of the non-houki girls manages to progress on the social link, the plot unfolds a bit *BAM* Houki appears and gets the lead back because "lol childhood, kendo and traditions!"
The IS users gather for an event, battle, etc... *BAM* Houki gets a new IS, a new weapon (she already has a sword that shoots lasers and now a long range rifle so I'm going right now to call the rifle that shoots katanas that shoot lasers as her next weapon!)
I mean is it really that hard to write another 2 page chapter just to give a more plausible reason for her to get buffed?!

I mean, plot powers is ok, however what I am really angry is how Izuru actually bothers to construct interesting and all tender in their own way girls (any of the non-houki ones and in my opinion Charl a bit more) just to have all their efforts broken by Houki who's just winning by default (and a few bentos here and there is not what I'm referring to!^^). It's just depressing!

Eh! with my IRL friend who also read the LNs we even came up with a "Houki Happens" catchphrase we would say every time she would get a unrelated random boost

And it's now getting worse in the anime (season 2) and in volume 8.
Now Izuru (and/or whoever is pulling the strings) seems now to try really hard to make all the non-houki girls act like big perverts (which to be honest wasn't true for any of them up until recently) and "convince" the audience that Houki is the logical winner by default (by AGAIN doing nothing.)

It's like Izuru worked hard thinking we'll come to his Houki conclusion by ourselves and is now trashing his work because he's angry that people don't view it his way.
And that is really sad...

Did he get rejected by a "Houki-type" girl IRL and is now even more angry because he can't seem to make it work even in LN format?!^^
..
So now I'm left with a bitter taste in my mouth and a certain apprehension for the lovefest he promised us in volume 9 (If it comes out eventually^^).

He can still pull it back together imo so let's be optimistic!


PS: On a side note Tatenashi is pure win in every single format! : D
