Spoiler for IS 03 - Instant Souchaku!:

kramerica 2011-01-20 14:15

Spoiler for just in case:

I_am_Kami 2011-01-20 15:26

6/10 . Didn't really want to give it this. Its just that it seems that it going to be like this. Girl meets guy, girl wants to fight guy, girl joins harem, they all stick together.

Hmmmm ok fighting, low mecha porn, but Cecilia`s shots and suit up really raised the episode for me. I gave him an 8.

I like Rin, yet I kinda like those "squirrel" like characters!! Small, spunky and fun. Original school dress makes up for lack of attributes. XD

blitz1/2 2011-01-20 17:18

I found it amusing that during the lineup, Houki and Cecilia were just glaring the whole time. xD

Gents now we know why the IS accepts Ichika as a pilot.

Funny, I actually thought that when I first saw it.

serenade_beta 2011-01-20 22:39

Wow... That was a bit...
I wouldn't have minded the whole love-comedy thing... If it wasn't for the fact Cecilia's attitude went "dere" way too fast and way too much.

Rin was an okay addition. Not enough to make me go "Uwoooooooooooh!" or something, but the best so far... Besides Nohohon-san though.
I thought I heard her voice before... If it isn't Ameri! Even the hairstyle...

Gotta love Protagonist Power! Be it suddenly getting better at a machine or suddenly getting worse, to the lovely density in his head!

...........The end of the episode... Where have I seen this type of development ago... Like... The previous episode? :heh: Oi, oi...

PS: I wonder if I can get a wish granted if I bring 7 balls to Rin's machine...

Vsin 2011-01-21 01:27

I'm sooner expecting Rin's machine to launch its arms and have flamethrowers.

Cecilia's character sure has underwent a complete 180 when it comes to Ichika. While as much was certainly to be expected (and foreshadowed), i still find the degree of change to be a case of too fast, too soon. Ah well ... i guess with the amount of heroines they have to introduce (and each new introduction siphoning away the screentime of each) they don't have much time for character development if they intend to have a plot along with it. Ah well ... considering she annoyed the hell out of me previously, i can live with this sudden turnabout. If nothing else, was funny seeing her barreling Houki out of the way as she rushed to Ichika's side after the crash :heh:

That aside, this episode has finally delivered something that was sorely missing for me personally in the first two - a likable main female character. Rin left a quite good impression on me - colorful, interactive and while she does seem to have a bit of a wild streak, it is much more restrained and reasonable than Houki's. Was quite amusing seeing her instantly want a room switch with Houki - girl knows what she wants :heh: Seems to have some issues with her father though ? Well, we will find out soon enough i guess.

I am a bit worried about the upcoming fight though - Ichika's performance with IS this episode was quite inconsistent with what we saw last week (dodging Cecilia's shots and slicing up her remote weapons compared to failing at basic maneuvering this time), so i only hope it doesn't turn in to a case where we are supposed to believe Ichika is a newbie at piloting (by showing us him failing at practice lessons), but suddenly developing abilities to do well against opponents he has no business doing well against. For all intents and purposes fighting against a melee opponent should be quite hellish if you are inept at controlling the basic movement of your machine, so lets see how that goes. If the partial materialization is any indication, Rin should know her way around the IS quite well.

Speaking of which, what was Houki thinking, exactly - actually trying to hit a person with the wooden sword ? :eyebrow: I know it served as a plot point to give Rin a reason to show off her ability to partially materialize her IS, but err ... that girl has some seriously violent tendencies.

Overall ok episode i guess. I quite liked Rin, but i liked everything else considerably less. And Ichika proves to be as dense as a dried fish (well, that much was to be expected from previous episodes) ... for once, i would kill for a more interesting male lead - only thing setting Ichika apart is having an attitude to stand up for his thickness, so at least he isn't a rag. But really ... i wish the author had used a wee bit more creative solution than the test and tried method of making the male lead thicker than concrete in order to allow him to coexist with half a dozen females in an endless loop. Continuous interactions based around the interaction subject standing there going "huh?" aren't particularly engaging. Ah well.

ablanar prego
comically horendous episode. China representative was boring

ZeKeR 2011-01-21 04:35

i can still lol at the moments where houki is cockblocking

Asterisk 2011-01-21 04:38

This Ichika...must be the most dense guy on the planet.

Liking this series so far, albeit the generic plotline, it still makes a pretty solid plotline.

yeah... and pretty soon... the nations will probably send their females to become his bri- wait, what happened is prolly the hidden agenda....

also... even i am wondering about this...
why do teh females change so long? and for some reason, when we hear them change, teh rustling of the clothes feels really awkward...

iceyfw 2011-01-21 05:04

i like how the door said 'Unauthorized Access' and the dude just walked in anyway.

Silverwyrm 2011-01-21 06:15

I really hope he loses to her, it really wouldn't make any sense for him to win this and he needs a reason to put more effort into his training.

Grade AA derp.

Dahak86 2011-01-21 07:08

lol, good episode.
amazing Cecilia fanservice! and, wow, she totally underwent a sudden change in behaviour toward Ichika. :heh:
guess, I also lost count of how many times "osana-najimi" has been said throughout the ep. :heh:
and LOL @First and Second osana-najimi...:D
yeah, Ichika is dense as rock. but if he weren't like that, we'd be witnessing an harem-hentai by now... (not that I would mind, though). :heh:
Rinin is a great addition. I already like her.

so, next is Ichika vs Rinin. cool, should be very interesting. :cool:

GIFs and stitches for ep3 in the image thread.

Bombo 2011-01-21 07:11

Good episode tbh :
Rin to the girls :
I'm talking with ichika now
Would people who aren't involved please leave ?

Go for it rin chan <3

Azuma Denton 2011-01-21 07:31

Rin is owning...
Ha ha ha, nice seeing how Houki and Cecilia being jealous...

Houki got a serious competitor...
And i never see a series where male protagonis have 2 childhood friend, yet those childhood friend never met each other. So convinient heh...
