Let me give you a fair comparison of the situation he is currently into (as of EP-01)

1. Pick a foreign language that you don't understand at all.

2. Get yourself a 'How to learn that language' booklet. preferably a single edition that is as thick as yellow page.

3. No other studying aide is allowed. You must use only that booklet.

4. You have just 7 days to learn the language, and become proficient enough to discuss literature in that language with someone else.

5. Can you blame Ichika for being lazy now?
Thats a pretty accurate simulation. Hopefully, after another 2-3 episodes people will stop prematurely judging the anime and at that point they either decide to drop the series or continue. One or the other.

First episode looks fine to me, even if, as mentioned before, right now it is a cliched harem show. I hope they are exaggerating some clichèd character traits on purpose because it is the first episode. I hope, because that brit girl is very a bit annoying
Anyways, give me a MC not-loli long hair tsundere and I will watch all the episodes for sure
Plus the male character looks promising first of all because he's going to have an active role in the action, I mean he is/will be strong enough. I don't like thse MC who have no strength or power (but it would be strange otherwise since this is a mecha show). But we'll know more depending on
Spoiler for speculations:

He did say that, but at the end they decides to do duel with no handicap for either side.

But I'd say that he is already handicapped enough as it is...

The girls are all M! I can clearly hear that they also want to be punished

I'd be more surprised if anyone having seen the 3 animes them characters are from didn't think their was some sorta similarity or general feel between the 3
I think I would put it down to coincidence as well but yea, "still..."

Well Mio would have been my pick between the 3 but damn Houki is just too adorably cute, if she gets any cuter she will taking the lead over Mio.

who's Mio or from what anime is the Mio you guys are talking about? From Houki I can only remember the student council prez in setokai and she also reminds me of another student council president from another anime about the student council which is having a maid part time job..... sorry I'm bad with title and names

what I meant was that it's kind of coincidental these 3 characters Hikasa Yoko voiced looked pretty similar. Mio from K-On, Shino from Seitokai Yakuindomo, and Houki from IS.

I'm going to speculate based on the events limited only in anime episode 1.

I think it's strongly hinted that Houki has feelings for the main guy. The first was the rooftop scene where Houki is being a tsundere. The second was the scene in their room, where she kinda expect Ichika to say that he requested to be in the same room with her. Judging from those imo it's safe to assume Houki likes the guy.

And mind you novel readers (or those who knew the plot and story), appreciate if you guys don't ruin the fun by saying this is wrong or not because it ain't based on the novels. Considering that most of us are Japanese illiterate or don't like to read novels but just enjoy watching shows and cartoons on the screen.

On side note, dense male lead are a must to spice a harem or in any harem show. I don't mind a dense lead as long he's a badass and can actually fight. Not just some dumbfuck pussies, losers or wimps lead who's prolly relying on kindness and by default having all girls swooning over him, or worse, having the girls taking all the action while the main guy himself sitting as mary-sue.

I recognized Houki's voice similar to shiino and also the looks but not mio or maybe it's just that I'm not a total fan of K-On.

And isn't it obvious that houki likes ichika just from the roof scene that I believe. And maybe the other girls on his class. He is sure one lucky guy. But the girls really lack ..... how to put it shame? or something or maybe they are not use to guys. It's just that in the scene when houki rains wooden blade works on ichika forcing him to run outside. The girls are all in their PJ or at least getting ready to sleep with .... what lack of clothes -_- or that's just for fan service stuff.

His really one lucky guy. Reminds me of isekai no monogatari.

Probably because Shino is talking a lot of perverted remarks. Compared to Houki, a little timid and strict girl.
