Infinite Stratos ep 11: Review/ranting

WOW, I haven’t done an IS post in a while. Warning: I have no warning that could warn you from something deserving of a warning today…Oh wait, I do have a warning. I’m on a foul mood today and so this post is going to be 95% rant (lol).

Wait, it got nothing to with IS…Anyway moving on…

Reaction: Crap, the show has added transformation sequences! This is a bit late, don’t you think?

Go Pink Ranger!!


Focus on the center


Keep focusing on the center


Well he doesn't get a complete sequence hahaha

Ok, we have everyone thinking Houki will screw up the mission because she’s getting excited for having a new IS. Then an illegal fishing boat comes in forcing Ichika to save them and thus resulting in Houki demanding the moron to leave “those criminals” alone. Then the eternal moronic idealist brings his speech about Houki’s cold behavior towards those illegals which leads to Ichika being shut down. YES!!! HE GOT SHUT DOWN!!!!!! Best thing that ever happened on this show!!! Seriously, what is wrong with Houki exerting violence. One should always be true to oneself. I’m sure Saeko (High School of the Dead) can say the same. It’s a wrong direction to have Houki decide another way and belief to fight, especially since we haven’t seen her fight that often!!!!! Yes, talk about rushed. If you’re going to make her change her mindset, at least give her character development. The way how the show built her character is extremly poor. How is “being violent” is a good cause for being depressed? We do not have enough background story to understand her uneasyness. Sadly, she’s just uneasy with herself because it’s convenient for the show.

Not the Hair Band!!!!!!

Not hot


BITCH SLAP!!

One of the things that really bothered me is that Ichika showed his generic annoying idealist yet again (the other time was when he fought the the valkyria system). The character that Ichika reminds me the most has to be Emiya Shiro aka the dude with the least unrealistic ideals (especially in the Unlimited Blade Works movie). What’s the point of heroic ideals if it puts your allies in danger? Let’s just save some illegal fisherman in the sea instead of destroying a super-dangerous robot going on rampage. Notice that boat wouldn’t be shot if Ichika went for the kill on the machine. One of the characteristics of those kind of idealists is that they believe their actions bring good even if they were to be shown the contrary.

Yup, Ichika is a moron


He's wrong!!!!

Crap, she's crying

Plus can anyone tell me why are they relying solely on the first year students to battle that machine? What’s the point of the teacher again? Oh right, surround an area. Oh wait an illegal boat trespassed. They’re utterly useless! In addition, as (and especially as) the show is most likely to come to an end, it seems that the 2nd and 3rd year students don’t even have any personal IS. It’s quite an amazing school (sarcasm).

Truly good

The positive part of this episode (besides Ichika being shut down) has to be the action sequence, though it was really nothing special. Moreover, the comedy is not existant at all. I guess it’s supposed to focus on Houki’s horrible sad face and depression for SEVERAL minutes which did nothing but make me fast forward this episode. IS without any kind of comedy is the equivalent of a serious Eddy Murphy movie (which doesn’t exist), not that I’m comparing the comedy in IS with Eddy Murphy. Score: a generous 4/10.
