I just went to ANN Winter anime preview and most of the reviewers who reviewed IS hated the show and calling it "stupid, cliche, crap and not worth the time".

I was like "What the" when they said that. Considering IS manage to impress a very cynical anime blogger that i know, i'm surprise it was very opposite with the guys at ANN.

Hopefully the other ANN reviewers who haven't seen the show yet will be much better.

I quite liked the first episode, the art is awesome. I quite liked the idea since I've first read it.

Thankfully the protag, Ichika was not as bad as I think it would. He is the only man in the whole world that can pilot "IS", can't be half-assed.

Goona use this one. Thanks!

For some reasons, all of ANN's current review are the opposite of what I feel about the shows I've watched, so I kinda avoid them at all cost to save me some sanity. Even some sound like they have to write it because it's their job, not because they watched it and want to write a review about it.

People who shout "cliche" in this one, I categorize them the same as those that shout "moeblob" when they see cute girls as the main characters in one show, or "mindless ecchi" when there is a sign of boobs/ass/whatever it is. It has cliche doesn't mean it's automatically bad.

i don't mind cliche so long it's properly executed or properly done

Well as the saying " Beauty is with in the eyes of the beholder" as each individuals has there on opinion and preferences.

As for me i'll continue to watch and make my own opinion on the show (manga/LN)

I noticed that Houki also looks a lot like Shiino from Seitokai Yakuindomo at certain angles . Surprise surprise its Yoko Hikasa also voices her

Otherwise it was a decent first episode. Nothing too special . Oh well , more harem-ish animes are fine by me

Having an entire class/school of girls giggling, whispering and gossiping behind your back can be rather stressful for any guy.

I just have a thing or two for girl like that.

So before the other people realize this, I'm calling dibs on Cecilia heh!

It's ok, when i go read the review of anime haters in ANN i know what to do, more a show get low rating more this show is very interesting and worth watching. Infact as i expected i like IS.

Except that he knows virtually nothing about this piece of equipment that he's apparently so good at operating. I can't fathom how this could be the case. He's the only male in the world who can even make the thing move, much less actually be good with it. Why hasn't he bothered to learn anything about it? I'm willing to believe someone is lazy and apathetic, but asking me to accept that is absurd. It'd be like discovering I can conceive a child and not bothering to go to a doctor and ask why.

If it works, who cares how it works ?! Real men don't read the Instruction Manuel!

You just wing it and see what happens !

Thx for info.

Btw , if this show didn't have a male lead , this would be an Yuri anime ^^ Strike Witches?
Dunno if with only 1 male , we'll be able to see some random Yuri couple.

Reading Instruction Manual prevents you from being looked like a loser, though .

And I learned it the hard way.

Nice episode 1. With pretty busy schedule. I can only watch it while I'm on the bus. nevertheless it's plenty enjoyable. Though the next episode would probably doubled it. I can't wait to see the fight.

Tsundere are always win on my book and by the looks of the battle in the beginning. It looks like the fight scene wouldn't let me down.

I wonder how will he beat up Cecilia. With him having near to zero experience and his opponent is an elite representative.

Good artwork, mecha fights ( even if the design is a bit strange ), sympathic characters. Finally a new anime to watch after Regios was over.

Damn, I didn't know anything about this show, so this episode trolled me pretty hard with its opening mecha-battle sequence. "w00t! Mecha-action! I missed you!"

And then the rest of the episode happened
The IS can only be piloted my females (*groan*). The protag is of course the only male exception (*groooaaaan*). Whacky harem-hijinks ensues. It's like they don't even fuckin' try anymore.

So far so good. They weren't throwing fanservice everywhere, the main guy isn't a pushover where it counts and he even has a sense of honor. I can at least get why Houki was tsundere and she only attacked when she thought Ichika was a perv and she was embarrassed. I can forgive that though if it does go on for too long it may get annoying. Other than that the main thing that'll keep me are the battles and it looks like they will look sweet

You should try harder, too.

Obviously you know nothing about this show if you think it's "whacky harem-hijinks".
