    Pink blouse with a yellow jacket and bright green hair... that's gotta be the worst colour combination ever. Was her designer colour-blind?

    She's a bit of a ditz. So it kinda fits with her personality.

    Well, a part of the amount of steam, I liked the part with the action.

    Hope for more.

    I'd agree. Action is cool, and harems don't disappoint, I'll have my pick of girls.

    And I'm always still amused by the awesome titles for these articles. They're clever.

    A lot of good comments about it.

    Is it recommendable? Or is it just another "good" anime? For I'm looking for another series to watch right now.

    Definitely a pimp. His harem size is increasing by at least 1 per episode, and based on the preview for ep 3, its going to go up by 1 more there as well.

    You're being too hard on this. I just recently got into Anime, and I have to say; this is quite enjoyable. It's so very different from the American, French and Belgium cartoons I'm used to seeing!

    agreed after a few years and seeing most of what's out there you sadly begin to notice there ain't any more originally out there and that can be said especially for this season of new anime, pretty much everything is just recycled stuff mashed together, well thats from mostly the first ep's only but you know where it will probably go. But yeah have fun enjoying it as being new until you can. Cause honestly I'm just watching most of the show's this season to do something lol.

    I still think its pretty original. Harem anime without a useless piece of shit that can only knit or something like that. They need to make more harem anime's like Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. The mc definitly deserves his harem on that one since he can pretty much do anything and isn't just some useless waste of space. Well I guess they like that kind of useless protagonist since its someone they can relate to.

    The anime *is* good. Not great because lacks originality (but who really cares about that, and also, similarities are bounded to happen, they are called steriotypes). Not bad because the characters and the fighting sequences!
    By the way, about the fighting sequences and the IS system:

    ~Pop-Ups: no matter how many years pass, they'll be there!~

    Also, the escuse for the IS not covering the important parts -- chest and head -- because it has a field (that can be destroyyed) is just weak and lame.

    In the end, I'd like to say one thing: Fkcuing censorship of hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I liked the "the go-home club" "i got full attendance on it" joke. But it seems repeated from index/railgun or somewhere else.

    Copy_paste season.

    Yea, lotsa male protagonists in these days anime are in the go home club or lazy with no redeeming qualities. It's like there's a guideline or template that writers have to follow for all the male leads O_o.

    lol, what u said reminded me of that oreimo episode where kuroneko told off the guy in charge of kirino's anime adaptation.

    Back to this anime, though: personally I don't hate it, even if it is very similar to way too many animes out there. It feels a bit heavy/slow at times, so far; but imo, it's still worth watching just to kill some time.

    I missed the good ol times where a mecha relied on military style like the 1st Gundam (OYW), Dragonar, Dunbine (at least), MS Gundam 08th Team, Pocket War 0080, SDF Macross (the first one), Macross Plus, Votom or Layzner. Not just super powered prototype mecha that squandering beam , funnel, enormous laser sword et cetera.

    So far, I think this show is fine. If it lacks originality, I must not have been looking for originality.

    I like the series, and find that it's not that bad in the originality department. After all, to me it seems like a relatively unique mix of known concepts. I like the relationship between Houki and Ichika as well, seeing as Houki doesn't just push him around and beat him up, but takes the strict instructor role while Ichika is actually enough of a man to take opportunities and drag HER along.

    did they change the definition of "plot" in japan?

    Japanese plots are inherently different from Western plots. For I don't know how long Western plots have been characterized by the five-stage development formula (intro, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution), which makes story development a good bit easier, and leads to the "all loose ends tied" that so many Westerners come to expect (and why I'm guessing anime and manga remain somewhat niche). Of course, Eastern stories don't always follow this formula (I've noticed that a lot of one-season fighting anime do, though). So, the definition of "plot" may be considered to be different in Japan.

    Lack of originality isn't necessarily bad.

    "Your manuscript is both good and original, but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good."
    -- Samuel Johnson

    "The most original authors are not so because they advance what is new, but because they put what they have to say as if it had never been said before."
    -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Just some quotes I dug up. (The first one I got from TV Tropes, though they attribute it to Mark Twain.)

    Leon, do you normally watch anime with closed captions on? I think that it kind of detracts from the screen captures.

    A) Different TV stations.
    B) That's like comparing a PG13 movie to a rated R movie. They're in different categories for a reason.
