Infinite Stratos ep 9: It’s all fun and games except for…

Houki, just stay there in your own world


With all of the fanservice, who won’t enjoy this episode? IS is a really good anime to take off your mind out of speculah, sit back, and just enjoy the show.

Aside from France-tan proving how awsm she really is as #1 wife material, I have to say that Houki’s attitude during the beach scene was definitely out of place that I find it annoying. There’s actually nothing wrong if you attempt to put on a serious face and think things over especially now that you’ll be having your personal IS (and finally taking on a serious role in this anime) but as one of the harem leads, she’s EXPECTED to provide fanservice and enjoy herself with the rest of the cast.

This isn’t the first time beach episodes were used in anime. In the beach scenes that I could remember, a few of the protagonists would always have that worried look on their faces, being troubled instead of having fun and even though I would’ve liked it if Houki did that while enjoying their company, her no show to the rest of the cast and the viewers felt a little bit rude.

Hmph. I hope she doesn’t whine her sorry butt if France-tan manages her complete victory.

    Quite the fanserive indeed. From a date (?) with France-tan to a moe gothic lolita Laura. Who can say no?
    Er, ok. Maybe to the Orimura incest, yeah.
    But lol, Black Rabbit Squad sounds awesome. I wouldn’t mind joining their ranks >;D

    And here I thought that Germany went through hell during her training. If she had a crazy bunch to support her like that, it can’t be that bad right? 😀

    I found that whole setup kinda strange and it’s not just on Houki’s part. I mean, why didn’t anyone at the beach care where she was? Nobody asked where she was. Nobody bothered being concerned about her absence. Chifuyu’s call out to her at the cliff seemed to confirm that she wandered off without telling anyone. If that was really the case, I do feel a bit sorry for her even though I would have liked it better had she just subtly mulled over her worries in the company of others… Or could it be that she didn’t want any of them to worry/stick their nose into her business? All the more so that her worries involve Tabane, someone she denied to her classmates about having any sort of relationship with before. Speaking of which, Houki looked noticeably stressed over the thought that Tabane would be dropping by and from her reactions in previous episodes, she harbors some sort of animosity towards her sister, perhaps for tearing her away from Ichika during their childhood.

    Hmph. I hope she doesn’t whine her sorry butt if France-tan manages her complete victory.

    Well, at least Houki can have her revenge off screen. XD

    A super soldier who doesn’t have any appeal may just end up as a normal human being

    I prefer Laura to be in her badass super soldier mode but I guess having her all deredere once in a while isn’t so bad either. The switch felt a little odd though, especially the change in voice. XD

    This voice… could it be… RIE TANAKA?!

    Mizusawa Kei, another underrated seiyuu with a deliciously sexy oneesan voice. 😀
