The animation in this episode was rather bad. Pacing also took a hit in my opinion. I'll need the subs to confirm but it followed the novel pretty cleanly. Only parts I did not like was the moments with Cecilia, Rin, Char and Laura.

It's just to prove more of the Y-disease symptoms. I wish that Honne was present more longer.

Damn, that Kanzashi crying...(pets her)

@preview: OH, I can't wait!!!! Are they going to bring the enemies from LN7 or are they going to bring in Phantom Task again? Can't wait. Because I could tell next ep is going to be the BOMB (or at least the ep after it).

You know what, I think it's crystal clear that Ichika and Kanzashi fit so well together in the anime.

not so much in the original LN, and Houki probably will win, but still... this is an improvement.

9/10 for clarity, even if the pacing is almost random.

It appears that Infinite Stratos (Stratii?): http://i.imgur.com/K76EBQI.jpg
Run Open Office: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/open...reecontrol.cxx

That's the particular file in the most-forward screen ("IS Main Circuit Program Code 0A") anyway; the ones at the back are too blurry and will need a bluray version for me to work out.

(Yes, I'm easily amused; now I need to finish watching the episode.)

Just finished watching the episode. A decent one, so far. The plot is advancing well.

Does anyone know what the frame at about 16:13 was about? Seems to be two people squaring off in IS, one is Chifuyu and why does the other one look like Houki?

I noticed that too... It was a present time Houki vs younger Chifuyu. That...is confusing.

In other news, I must say Episode 8 has altered my view of Tabane by quite a bit. It almost appears that she was 'coerced' onto the whatever project those 'MIB' were representing and it went from there. I think I can write a fic about that...

- Really Ichika? You needed Tatenashi to tell you how Chifuyu displays her 'love'? And yes Ichika, those girls are so 'nervous' they throw angry auras at you whenever you so much as mention another girl.

- MEDIC!!! Laura's voice sounded so cute!

- MOAR HONNE~!!!! Sleepy-tan is da bestest!!

- Ichika's AXE aura strikes again! Getting Kanzashi within a week and then breaking her in as many seconds. Such a playboy~

- XTRA: It really is a toss up between Ichika and Natsuru as to who is the densest material known to man. ...or are they a match made in heaven?

Imagine Fem Natsuru and Ichika on a date.

What would they say to each other?

that's funny... Ichika got 5 death flags at same time
Laura expression when she tore Ichika's picture is also priceless

waiting for this episode for 1 week isn't disappointing
Kanzashi is the most normal girl that fall in love to Ichika right now
That blushing... and considering how fast she is fallen in love. It seems like Ichika really is the first man who she interact with...

Tatenashi seems intentionally want to break Kanzashi's heart
She's just a messed up onee-san
I also love how they compare Sarasashi's siblings with Shinonono siblings.. they're similar in different way
hopefully next episode won't be so emo... and sadist because of girls' revenge

Nice little episode, refreshing to see some kind of development after the first half of the season. But Ichika really managed to get himself in a terrible situation. Rin and Cecilia will probably try to tear him apart while laughing hysterically like psychopaths, Laura will go on a rampage against him, while Charl will give him the usual Charl-smile while pointing a gun in his face. The only person he can expect to fight rather normally is probably Houki.

Cute, but still not quite as cute as Tohka-chan.

HA! I have this feeling that the male Natsuru in Kampfer ending is not really Natsuru, but Ichika in disguise

... I can't ... stop... laughing... XD

If Ichika was subjugated to the same gender-bending rules as Natsuru was in order to pilot an IS. XDDDD *flees to the fanfiction thread*

I was also going to say that Kanzashi was very 'normal' as well but for the girl to fall that quickly... Ichika truly is a black hole.

Am I the only one whose impression of Tatenashi just got worse and worse, especially after this particular episode?
