Okay~!

Thanks for opening the thread for us.

As it says, this is the Infinite Stratos 2: WORLD PURGE OVA thread.

This covers the events of the Volume 8 of the Light Novel, where ISA comes under attack.

It was good overall - much better than most of anything in the series, by far. Still, there were little hiccups along the way, which makes me score this a '7' overall, despite my obviously great love of Chifuyu.

Spoiler for Info not covered in OVA:


And...

I can't remember the event so much from the LN. but I can't really find to like it if this is indeed anime original. And besides, it's Kurezakura (hence black....so why is she white?)

Which is why I think it's just a placeholder for Kurezakura.

But enough of that, back to fanboying Chifuyu.

Chifuyu in a nutshell

Also, while I dislike the OVA, that's more to do with source material itself. Objectively speaking, this is a high value OVA that captures the nuance of novel perfectly. So I give it 10/10

Again, I don't enjoy it wholeheartedly, but it's definitely better than the Infinite Shit called Season 2.

Just by the fanservice and the ichika of the other reality this was good, but, with the actual plot i was taken back a little bit, i didn't understand any of the progression, maybe i should rewatch last shitty season to understand, but, not now.
So Chloe is the sister of Laura??
weren't tabane and chifuyu kinda good friends?? what is with that final scene??
What is that system and the girl in the pillar(she is somehow related to chifuyu and her IS by what I could saw)??, i dont understand a little bit

So, good to see but not to think, i must say

We can wait for the subs but as for Chifuyu's and Tabane's actual relationship, my personal take on it is that they are not they type of friends who are buddy-buddy. It's more of that they are beyond ordinary people (Chifuyu's physical prowess and Tabane's mental prowess), and they regard each other as equals. I don't know why - speculation can run rampant on that one.

Tabane is playing some kind of high-stakes game with Chifuyu and the world just happens to be caught in the middle... Whatever the reason, Chifuyu is wary of Tabane as she would a friendly enemy. Which would make sense if one looks at it from this perspective. 10+ years ago, both Tabane and Chifuyu took on the world and they both won - Tabane managed to hack the missiles and Chifuyu managed to deflect them all plus take out a naval task force sent against her. Really, the only people they have left to challenge are each other.

Tabane = Magneto and Chifuyu = Charles. THat's the best way I can describe them. They are frienemies.

So, chances that in the []zanpakutoIS's inner world, the IS Cores are all represented by young girls? Seems likely...

yea.. Houki's dream is the most plain... while Laura fainted at the end is also kill the excitement
umm.... in previous OVA in first season, they give Houki a boost of flags..
At first, I think they are going to boost Rin.. but it seems like Char, Cecilia, Rin, Tatenashi, and other girls also got slightly similar treatment

since it is uncensored (BD version), I think I'm watching a borderline-H (especially Rin and Cecilia route)

I should enjoy that fanservice more.. but Chifuyu really make me distracted
Ponytail-Chifuyu.... is epic.. slashing IS like a boss
I think all the girls should follow Houki's hairstyle.. Ichika slightly interested in Houki maybe because he's seeing Chifuyu in Houki's image

sigh... Chloe.. you should give Laura a nicer dream since it is your imouto
The plot got more boost in OVA than the 12-episodes series

Honestly, I couldn't watch any of the other girl's fantasies other than Houki. It felt like the four of them were being potrayed as closet perverts. The bias towards Houki and Tatenashi is rather obvious not that I am complaining as they are my two favourite characters in Ichika's harem. If anyone will end up with him it will be probably be one of the two girls.

So...you're saying that Houki will win only because she reminds Ichika of Chifuyu...?
Legit reasoning!
