Isn't every sport just a repetition of a means to an objective?

Football - "Let's kick the ball around until it goes into that net!"
Basketball - "Let's pass this ball around until it goes in that basket!"
Tennis - "I'll keep hitting this ball until you mess up!"
Bowling - "I'll keep rolling this ball until it knocks down all the pins!"

Despite that, people still enjoy watching and playing sports because they involve more than just the goal and the means.

Well, I.S.A. aint that huge, and even at low altitude the I.S. can go supersonic. Assuming the average combat speed of such altitude are 450 mps, and each circle of I.S.A. are 7.85 km, we have 17.5 second per lap on average....

How anticlimax :|

I'm not really a sports guy, so I just think it's boring.

Senpai - Other than schooling and jobs, what else are the males gimped at?

Maybe the prestige? Double Standard also might be stronger than before.

Maybe priority shift, but might not that noticeable (because otherwise it's against ethic)

Yes.

Similar concept was proposed in ST (this time about Social Service as a whole) and earned middle finger (metaphorical or literal) from everyone.

Domino effect.

Even the smallest thing, given a right timing and place, will cause a great effect.

I would agree with the fact that the IS seem to be built for mainly fights/wars/battles.

Also, why is the event called Cannonball Fast, seeing as it's just a race with mechs? Not like in involved any tossing of cannonballs or anything along that line, did it?

Ichika is too indifferent to care (like in Canon), while Dan is pretty much the poster boy of genre savvy. Bringing up men's inferiority, moreso rubbing it in, kinda irked this version of Ichika though

@ Stratos
Well, I actually assume it's a long distance race of hundreds, maybe thousand kilometers... and then... how disappointing

@ Stratos - Cannonball=Speed.

@ Senpai - I meant no one ever messed with them despite the supposed "superiority".

In case of Ichika, it's illogical to put the phrase "Female are superior" because he's an I.S. pilot himself, and has personal unit to boot.

He tend to lash it out when someone rubbed it on him though, Cecilia, Rin as well as the woman in clothing shop being prime example.

Dan's case is more unique, he is pretty normal guy, and kinda steel-balled in that regard.

However he often avoid argument unless necessary, so even if the girls rub it on him, he just laugh it of in a mock defeat, made them even more annoyed in process.

Did you guys ever try to normalize your characters?

(I'm trying to figure the proper approach to this sort of thing.)

What about their other friends?

@ Demi - A normalized character is near impossible to use. Better an odd character than having some ridiculous circumstances forcing this normal guy to get involved in an abnormal story.

Show that they have a normal everyday life other than crazy mishaps, adrenaline pumping struggles for survival and/or heart-wrenching drama.

Give them something more of a slice of life moment than every single second is BOOM and BANG for them. Kind of humanizing without "the morality pet"

In that case, of course I do it a lot of the time.
