.." "Saint Knight" (Story in an Alternate World)" wasn't really that great
unless you prefer Elf Girls over Cat Girls types in Tenchi Muyo /slash/ OutLaw Star
type series.

Ep 6 .. she seems too well acquainted with him to run away;
aren't three girls enough!?? does he really have to fall for this one??

and the harem grows larger once again. I really wish that in these series the main male character was actually intelligent, either that or actually get his ass beat when he decides to take on a death machine with his bare hands.

anyway, fight scenes are still the reason to watch this, needs some more battles

and also, in ep 08 "wife" wasnt a subbing error according to ayako
they contacted a few other groups and she definitely said wife
I guess we know who will wear the pants in that relationship :nose:

well it seems all the main players in the harem are assembled now
not including the whole rest of the school, the teacher, and his friends sister ran :awesome:
hopefully there wont be any additional players but you never know...

but yeah it would be nice if he actually had some sort of skill besides acting like an idiot, an oblivious one at that :uhoh:

anyway we have our obligatory harem beach episode next, so im not expecting too much along the lines of combat, more fan service
also wonder if the other girls even know charlotte is a contender yet, she was absent from the shock face montage even though she was in the room, moreover I wonder if her and ichika will still share a room, houki might demand it back now

non stop fan service :awesome:
but 0 action though :x

observations:
Spoiler :
I dont know how you can sleep naked with someone and basically let him see you naked and almost let him get to third base and yet be embarrassed by a swim suit...
I thought I was watching to love-ru for a second :uhoh:

Ran makes a return, short but sweet

Charlotte still racking in tons of harem points (still have no idea if she was kicked out of the room), lol @ getting caught in the changing room though by Chifuyu

Cecilia and rin, whats to say about these two... im sure they would be perfect for each other, rin basically had her hand up cecilia's ass, they always seem to be fighting and not very productive in the harem

Houki, besides catching ichika and laura "wrestling" in his bed while laura was naked, so disappeared in this episode only to appear at the very end, though her little time on screen was actually relevant to the story (shock) she is getting her own personalized IS (and a powerful one at that, a 4th gen just like ichika's)
now she wont be useless in battles or have to sit on the side lines with a worried expression on her face

Chifuyu actually wore a swimsuit, and according to a blushing ichika (wincest time?) it was hot

and that girl in the class that always has overly long sleeves, im pretty sure she is a furry, what would posse someone to wear a fox suit to the beach???

also random note, I like how rin was not punished for using her IS in the school, breaking down a wall, and firing a weapon in a crowed classroom, Chifuyu yet seems to only worry about the crowd shield on the battlefield being broken :roll:


Harem Ranking as of ep 09

1) Charlotte - this is a no brainier, she racked in so many points in so few eps its ridiculous
2) Laura - she is coming in hard and fast, not wasting any time since her announcement putting her above the other 3
3) Houki - very little action from her lately, though she still retains her position simply because ichika does have strong feelings for her
4) Rin - she could be a contender if she stopped being a yandere with cecila, she tried to steal the first kiss but very little progress since, she is a childhood friend so she ranks higher then cecila
5) Cecilia - just plain annoying, not only that but her sandwiches also made ichika sick to his stomach, and overall no advancements harem wise, im not even sure why she is in this harem other then to always be placed last


one last random note:
op credits have had a slight change

although this is pretty much null due to the fact that he is completely ignorant of all their feelings. cant really be ranked romantically when the guy is a completely clueless about it.

pretty much, like all harems he will never pick one person at the end
or if he does it will most likely be houki which will probably end with going on an actual date, then finds out that ichika invited the other girls to come along :awesome: houki then uses an IS to kick the crap out of ichika (but freezes frame right before houki will hit him with the other girls in their IS's coming to stop her) end credits :arrow: cue season 2 or OVA's

wasnt it said this is a 3 year school which could mean there would be about 3 seasons or more if the creators desired it
im almost positively sure there will be a second season, simply because ran mentioned she will enter the IS academy next year (and the harem will grow even larger now) we need more ran!
there is also other characters from the light novel that havnt been introduced yet

next ep, basically is tabane coming to give houki her own IS
she will also most likely meet ichika so she can see the only male that can use her machine for herself and probably fall in love with him ...
im hoping there is some action next ep, overloaded with fan service now

ep 11 and 12 will probably be dedicated to that enemy that we saw at the beginning of ep 1, also to note ichika was using a new weapon which seems very similar to weapon on the Guren from code geass, the radiant wave surger, im guessing he will receive this new ability from tabne or unlock it somehow before then

. well, yeah. But three years of Schooling with Girls means eight years of hell for guys! - hehe

Girls understand what they like and desire what they need; guys just take what they want
and leave the unwanted remains for whoever repairs the damage! [ on the rebound! ]

. I'm sorta looking forward to Houki destroying her New Ramican while finding-out that she
forgot to read the Manual. Somehow I'm not seeing Ichika getting along with anyone.

did anyone notice how some of he girls IS containers appeared then disappeared in the next scene?

4 times with rin (randomly showed up during the sun screen scene only to disappear next, when they were swimming also reappears then disappears)
2 times with charlotte (reappears a few times during the volleyball game then disappears)
1 time with laura (I assume that leg strap is her container since she wears it all the time, disappears during volleyball game)

episode 10

Spoiler :
it seems they tried to make half the episode about cecilia, it didnt really go over too well imo

ichika feed her a piece of sashimi (thats the 3rd girl now that been fed by him) and the class went berserk after seeing it

ichika was about to mention how he fed charlotte before but charlotte covered his mouth before he could say it, guess she is trying to keep it secret for some reason
and charlotte ate a big piece of wasbi (not knowing what it was) which was pretty funny
sadly this is the end of screen time for charlotte :(

anyway back to cecilia ichika says come to his room later which cecilia interprets as "sexy time"
we also find out she is wearing naughty underwear from her room mates who decided to strip her (this scene was pretty boring and not very fan servicy)
after this she goes to ichika room only to find the other 4 haremates listening at the door and a sign with that reads Chifuyu and Ichika's room

sexy music starts playing while they can hear panting, and Chifuyu saying stuff like "not so hard" and "this is... s-stop...", "not there" :awesome: (wincest time!!!)
you can see how this would be misconstrued into something completely different from what it actual is
anyway once cecilia joins in on listening, the wall falls down and surprise: ichika was just giving chifuyu a massage (which is actually pretty creepy anyway :uhoh: )

anyway chifuyu isnt too mad about it surprisingly and says ichika can give massages to all the girls (if you were expecting some great fan service will be disappointed by this scene)
cecilia is the first up (this is actually what he called told her to come to his room for) anyway boring massage going on (this is pretty much the exact same scene from the last ep with the sun tan lotion) then chifuyu decides to grab cecilia ass for some reason and looks under her robe to also find the naughty underwear and mentions how she is too young to be wearing it
and thats about it
this whole scene was a complete waste of time :down:

chifuyu then asks ichika to get some drinks, while out of the room she then asks all the girls if they want ichika and takes a sip of beer (for a second she was acting just like misato) then tells them they cant have him
once again another pointless scene

anyway now that that harem antics are over, its tabane time!
she does know how to travel in style, a giant flying metal carrot with salsa music playing
and she is really a big ball of energy ive got to say, she also acts very immature which seems to make houki very pissed off at her and chifuyu doesnt really like it either

it seems ichika already knows and met tabane before, and another shocker she doesnt fall in love with him, ichika's harem magnet doesnt work on everybody I guess
anyway everybody is gathered up while tabane gives houki her own IS which everyone is shocked at the specs of the machine (first true 4th gen IS) houki has a bit of fun with her new IS for a while testing out weapons and what not
and tabane im pretty sure she has magical powers, she literally makes ICBM launchers appear out of thin air and launch missiles at houki's IS to test it

moving along now, an emergency has occurred and the group is called into action
the rest of the episode is pretty much spent in debriefing on this new enemy
or basically the enemy that we saw in the beginning of ep 1

another unmanned IS went out of control from the US and Iseral (somehow I really doubt these two would work together...) (though the creators dont think too kindly of the US to begin with, check out the first chapter of the manga)
and yet again its up children to save the world and defeat this evil machine
ichika and houki will be the main attackers with everyone else on support
tabne also hints at that chifuyu was the famous "white knight" that saved japan from a ton of missiles that came from every country from a mass computer hacking
thats basically how the episode ends



I was expecting alot more from this episode, this is probably the worst yet
maybe some IS duels, but no, not enough time
the first half of the episode was mostly pointless, most of it could have been tossed out
what the heck happened to the animation quality, asdafsasf, its getting worse and worse
and I dont even need to mention houki's magically appearing white plugsuit where she was wearing the normal navy blue one seconds before

random note: I guess houki's birthday got ruined, she also thinks that ichika forgot it was her birthday
im pretty sure that gift he bought while swimsuit shopping was for houki (probably a hair ribbon or something like that) so she will be pretty surprised


2 episodes to go
as figured the next episode and a half will probably be dedicated to this enemy, I dont see them defeating it in only one
