.. possibly .. this might become 24 episodes instead of 12:
References given about "the white knight" and version five release
seem to scream 10 year study error!! Although, being a Government
run organization, should they really have Unidentified rouge models
making "hits" on that facility for Training Purposes Only -- or have
we missed something that they might be hiding at that location!??
.. this series seems to be playing on quite a few shows from the past.
I was just wondering why they are taking so long to get things started!?!!

I dont know, it seems like they are trying to wrap things up quick all of a sudden
not to mention the constant ads for the dvd/blu-ray/and cd release on 3/23 (day before ep 12 airs)
im pretty sure tabane is behind most of those "problems", looking to test her machines

at least there will be some actually action now

though I wouldn't complain if there actually was 24 ;)

on the IS site

【IS】今後の放送に関して。地震関連の特番による影響で、依然として事前に各局の放送有無の確認が困難な 状況にあります。分かり次第お伝えしていくよう努めて参りますが、事前に情報をお伝えできない可能性につい て、ご了承ください

which basically says any new episodes are now on hold until further notice which isnt too surprising considering whats going on in Japan right now, was looking forward to the next ep though :(
not sure if other series will follow suit or will keep airing

they are now airing again

episode 11
Spoiler :
this episode was interesting to say the least
I was expecting non-stop action and got very little action and instead a very heavy houki centric episode with her dealing with her anger

the part with the boat just seems pointless, they could have just moved away but instead ichika just draws gospels fire and goes in the direction of the boat (wtf?) houki wanted to let the boat get destroyed and ichika wanted to protect it even if they were illegal fishing, seems they just wanted to dag out houki's aggression

anyway gospel goes berserk sending bullets everywhere then ichika protects houki from the shots which causes them to fall into the ocean
and thats it for the action part

ichika's now is too hurt to fight, all the girls are weeping over ichika, especially houki's who has flashbacks to when they were in grade school and ichika protected her from bullies
all we needed was "dust in the wind" playing when houki was on the beach to make it perfect :rofl:
another forced thing seemed to be the girls cheering on houki to keep fighting and get revenge for ichika and rin slapping her, it just felt a little out of place

anyway houki decides to keep fighting and now basically all the girls have gone rouge without chifuyu's permission to engage it
chifuyu after seeing this just brushed it off like its no big deal

and thats the end of the ep with all 5 girls engaging gospel, next ep is the final battle
ichika will probably wake up and rush to help the girls and finish the IS off with a powerful move he has never learned or practiced before
we get a little big of fan service with houki's bathing suit though, also her hair ribbon in the preview is white, where as the green one she always wears got burned during the gospel fight, this is most likely the gift ichika got her in ep 9

tabane was also absent from this ep, guess she went home :(

best part of the episode was the last 5 secs of it :D

come on second season, probably wont see it till fall though if there is one

The ending was the exact opposite from the one I predicted a few posts back :p
houki was pretty much the harem winner (not like it wasnt predictable or anything)

as many people thought tabane was behind everything that happened

the combat was sweet, ichika's dream wasnt really needed though, and they completely skipped the part where his IS goes through 2nd shift
ichika had to be the hero and save everyone with a final blow as usual

overall good ep, could have used just a bit more action though

It started out enjoyable but the last episode really killed it for me, the whole, you can beat anything if you feelings are strong enough and you believe in yourself and crap Image

hopefully season 2 will be better

Ugh, now I know who Ichika reminds me of, Shiro from Fate/Stay Night, another one of the most annoying protagonists to ever exist. Their "I want to be happy with everyone" attitude is the same lol. you can't even call it a harem route since he's completely dense about all their feelings.

ok, rant over, looking forward to more IS fights heh
