To the guys comparing Ichika to Kirito...it took Kirito about 2 years to realize it, not one volume .

Hopefully, I haven't traumatized people over the little v8 story, though I had a full volume worth of plots planned out (amusingly, I had an idea of Kanzashi being bullied by the harem as well without her sister around). Yes, it was me.

Now, time to go back to my life of no translations. I think, given the difficulty of Gundam Unicorn, I might only be able to start in August or so.

I was lucky to be skeptic enough.

Damn you... I fell completely for your trick (just read THAT post of mine, which I won't even bother to write its link)... Which means i'm too gullible, or you have decent writing skills.

I didn't even hear about this prank and I still didn't bother to read it (False Vol. 8 Content).

And besides, I freakin posted a "heads-up" to alert you guys a few pages back.

People don't really read... They'll ask a question even after you posted the answer. Even if its two post back.

Still don't get how people can compare the two. One is dense. The other is whiny.

No, I am glad he isn't like Kirito or else he would go choosing his love freaking early in the story that it will give massive disappointment towards the fans who love the other heroines as they would know the other heroines are pretty much wasted and won't have much chance in love.

Yeah, but at least the girls understand Kirito's relationship with Asuna.

Unlike Ichika's harem where if he chooses one of them, or a different girl, they'll blow their gaskets right on him.

And this brings up the same problem found in TAMNI; the difference in scale. The thing is, like in TAMNI, if Ichika ever chooses, the political fallout would be... unpleasant at best. Even ignoring hypothetical influences, such as Chifuyu, the effect on say, Tabane (directly, and through Houki) or say Tatenashi, would spark global conflicts massive enough to reach the levels of WWIII (never mind various governments trying to use the girls' feelings to obtain the only male pilot...)

The timing is pretty different too. If one of the girls had two (near-isolated) years time with Ichika, and some life-or-death situations, the lead would be far too massive for anyone to contest. thing is though, they didn't, and so all the girls in IS made their entrances within a similar timeframe, and no clear winner was established early on to ward off competition.

Really, Ichika's in a situation where he couldn't have chosen earlier, is too endangered to make a choice at the present time...

Raildex has other 'good' male characters than the protagonist- the same can't be said for IS.

What effect does that have on the differences between Kirito and Ichika?

You're the one who drew similarities to TAMNI and Ichika or did I misunderstood your first line?

For anyone of you who directly or indirectly said Ichika suck

We're talking about an orphan who never saw his parents, ever. Bullied day to day because of that, then certain genius bitch who just happen to be people he care of to an extent dropped the bomb and made his position even worse in social hierarchy.

His precious people? A spartan, cold-assed sister who use swim and sink method for everything, a pair of violent, emotionally unstable childhood friend, etc

Tell me again, if Ichika not become an idiot he is now, we got an emo jerk 'Makoto Itou 2.0' material. I really, really don't want that route...

It's the narrative that's at fault

All you did was just make him understandably sucky =_=


As far as bad childhood goes do you really want to start comparing?

Oh, at least I can say that it's Lingyin who's too whiny

Ichika got worse than her at least, and Houki, well

How about "Separated from parents because of your sister and probably will never get a permanent friend" sound?

And yet V3 and V4 botched it with nepotism and easy reunion.

BEST PLOT EVER

Houki is like the heroine I hate the most in this series.

Something to consider: Given who M is, couldn't it be that Ichika has been "brainwashed" to be dense as a self-protective measure?

To protect from what? Girls? Kinda counter productive don't you think ?

A little late but I was using it to bring up the topic of scale. In no way was I comparing Touma and Ichika, just the threat level of their harems.

I'm gonna have to agree with Chaos on this one; what protective assistance does being horribly dense give? And why would his relation with M (which tbh is still largely unclear, nothing's actually been confirmed and/or given exposition yet) put him in a situation where being horribly dense would be helpful?

Not being close to a girl would help him not be vulnerable?
