Now I'll just go ahead and voice something that just needs to be voiced for the sake of it but doesn't mean I actually got a problem with since this being anime and all but why don't they have helmets in their awesomely cool mecha battle suit?

The music there is really good, I like it alot, very fitting given it's only a PV. Looking forward to that aspect of the show.
Yah i thought the lack of helmets was odd for these power armor. According to the novel all the suits got uber energy shields, and all the senor data/battlefield scans are send directly to the pilot's brain. Basically when they wear the suits they have 360 degree vision plus the HUD and all that jazz show up in their eyes.

I still would like helmets though especially considering its been mentioned that these things can go into space.

You can read chapter 1 online actually here. It's not the same as the novel intro though (you would have to ask someone to translate it but you sound like you can read Japanese so ...).

Coincidentally, it's the same place where you can read first chapter of
Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai (as well as MM! and Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai too, but those are scanned), but Mayo Chiki! is not uploaded yet =(.

That's a good question, I remember lots of beams (including a DRAGOON type of thing as well as plasma blasts/laser) but I don't think there are actual missiles. Could be wrong though. My memory is spotty at best due to various issues at the moment.

I thought at first this was a IS with Iori.....but I was surprised it was a mecha-musume anime.

dragoon type? what gundam? and lots of laser beams... hmm so it's a modern type so their wouldn't be a world war II weaponry.

More back ground info on the setting I learned from vol 1 that I decided to re-read again in detail instead of just skim through like i did the first time. I must say the thing still feels cliched as hell.

Yah it is a 20 minutes into the future kinda setting, the world's technology is mostly no more advanced than the present. Except for The IS which are such technological breakthrough that they are considered decades or even centuries ahead their world's technology. And of course Japan happens to invent these wonder machines and the Scientist who designed the Mechs happens to mysteriously vanish leaving designs for only a limited numbers of original suits, Plus the core blue print are all black boxed so the design can't be studied and analyzed and only replicated with limited success. Those original suits in question are hence distributed among the world's major powers to ensure no side abuse its power. A treaty is also set limiting the amount of IS allowed to exist. Currently only 467 are in service world wide.

The academy trains next generation pilot officers for militaries all over the world and the most promising cadet class rep are allowed to own a personalized original or souped up mass production copy pasta model IS.

If its anything to go by, the mechs in this novel are more powerful than some gundams. for one they all allow the pilots 100% battlefield and situational awareness and they all got Evangelion grade AT Fields, few conventional weapons can even hope to scratch the shields. It is said in the novel that should all the IS pilots decides to revolt , then the world's military would be utterly crushed within at best 3 days and worst 3 hours.

more serious than I thought and it's a good thing the most are female fighters. It's hard to imagine having a male psycho piloting it.

I think they need to come up with a new term instead of serious, it doesn't quite cut it.
I mean any time between 3 days and 3 hours for world conquest!? thats way way way beyond serious

It could be worse, they can make it in 6 hours, on the 6th minute on the 6th second. Well, that also aids in the symbolic meaning of end of world.

Whats great though. Is that the IS seems to have heralded an era of peace. As it seems that for the 10 years that IS have been around the world have never been so peaceful. though an international treaty exist to set on regulating the conditions for when the use of any IS outside of training is allowed.

Though there is an tournament every so often that happens where different country's IS compete for the title of number 1 in the world. The MC's sister was the winner of one such tournament. And Video games are made regularly to reflect these tournament(NHL, NBA series game like). Also is mentioned the huge and rather heated power level debate/ my country's IS is better than your country's or my country's IS pilot are hotter debates all over the internet due these video games.

If only the protagonist was like Sugisaki, it would be his dream come true.
