Well, as much as I hate to spout bullshit to all the anibloggers who's done some pretty negative reviews on these anime, I can't so. Seeing as they have more power to pathetic writers and toy reviewers. Anyhow IS is going to be another typical cliches Harem show. I'm also having doubts about it failing as bad To-love-ru and Linebarrels of iron(okay that one sucked realbad!), But hey Im just there for the little girls wearing ridiculous mecha parts.
Meet Orimura Ichika, the only male who can pilot an IS in the whole world. And he kinda stands out for not being the regular spineless bitch
Surprisingly, I thought fans would welcome this show's concept with there welcome arms, due to the success of (pantsu) Strike witches or Sky girls. I though wrong. My only complaint is, what's the difference(moving aside the male protagonist and the plot).Yeah sure Strike witches had little girls flying around with jet propellers for legs and wearing no pants(since they drag you, and aerodynamics is a bitch at times). Whilst Sky girls have a much more external plane exoskeleton and still wear classy leotards. Point is, its still your classic mecha musume theme(now with a guy).
Now the fight scene reminds me a lot more of Macross as to Gundam . but so far, the only REAL mecha combat we had was ep 2, and god I enjoyed it. Good highhlight seeing he made it pass through thopse FUCKUING BITS! (argeubaly the most cheap/ hackx weapon in gundam) also saying that they had built in shields with their suits,(im gonna cut gundam a slack now, I mean they carry giant slabs of metal that some would call "protection")
