Yeah, the whole World Purge incident, behind its flimsy disguise as a plot, was basically Yumizuru saying: "You HAVE to support Ichika and Houki, because Houki is the only one who truly loves him, all the others are just thirsty."

If he was a better writer, he'd stop derailing the other girls just to make his chosen one look good.

Well to be fair the derailing started very early with Lingyin

She started off as a cool childhood friend with a passing interest in Ichika, she could have stayed that way

Alternate possibilities include: (1) become an interesting rival to Houki due to her closer relationship with Ichika and her willingness to cut Ichika some slack and give him some space or (2) she loses interest in Ichika after learning what he is really like, but remains a friend

But obviously things did not turn out that way

I think the romance would have worked best as a Houki/Cecilia love triangle while the other girls play complementary roles, but that's just my opinion

I know this is a harem series and all. But do hear this. Every single time Ichikaís speaking with a girl or hang out with her, even if itís one of the IS girls among themselves, they form a misunderstanding in one way or another. Thus, the other IS girls shows up and try to destroy him with the IS. Seriously, these girls have issues. Do they want him to be alone? Do they want Ichika to be dateless forever?

It's just what the author considers humour, even if lots of people don't consider it funny at all.

I didn't find this slapstick humor funny at all, too. Speaking of which, I found a couple of things to show you.

If you ask me, that's what they get for abusing the poor boy they "love" as if they attacking him for petty to no reason, insults him, hurt him with their ISes, you name it. They treating him like their own personal punching bag. Serves them right.

I'd just settle for giving the girls better development.

Another way to punish the girls is for Chifuyu to point out to them if any of them had been more honest with Ichika and ask to be his girlfriend, he probably would have accepted. That would be a huge blow to those girls ego since it would prove how dumb and weak they really are.

It hasn't ended yet. The author is taking his sweet time writing the final volume.

If Izuru Yumizuru, the author of Infinite Stratos, were to make the final volume of the light novel, well then, it better be worth for all the troubles, the hijinx, the slapsticks, the misunderstandings, the hardships, and all the other kind of crap that the world of Infinite Stratos put the poor Ichika through.

Bad writing or not, it's still the author's work. I know from past reading that editors who force writers to add elements or change ideas around often result in even crappier work.

I read an old interview in Shonen Jump about the Naruto series. Kishimoto mentioned Hinata was supposed to be a damsel-in-distress princess and also the female lead, but the editor didn't like the character and requested he produce a different female lead... This resulted in the creation of Sakura. Need I say more?

True, it's still the author's work. But I don't have to like it.

That's not the editor's fault. Kishi universally sucks at writing female characters.

Well to be fair it's always about the sales, editors have a better idea of what sells than the writer

Obviously Infinite Stratos is a commercial success and if it's the Houki fanboys that keep the sales going, can't blame the author for going down that path over and over again
