Infinite Stratos is without a doubt, for me the best anime series this season. I don’t really know why. Every Thursday night, I squeal from the moment a new IS episode is released and at full force I activate the torrent asap, stop other torrents running so that downloads quickly so I get its weekly fix. Because of the high content of this week’s episode, I am writing up a episodic. Sadly, for some strange reason IS seems to be the only anime this season that downloads really slow for me compared to other series I get, well that’s karma for you. Oh – and Charlotte is my waifu.
Anyhow even though I love episode 8 as much as episodes 5 to 7 with another weekly round of the god-tier Charlotte, I somehow dearly hate it too, but I just can’t put my finger on it at the moment…
Oh and, pic related, OTP and you know it.
The IS Tournament has begun with the first match between Ichika and Charles as a team and Laura and Houki. Laura, having no concern over the tag team rule, goes off on her own fighting vigorously mainly towards Ichika, but always Charles intervenes to fend her off. The battle concludes when Ichika was finally able to defeat Houki, and all that was left was to finish off Laura. Suddenly Laura’s IS manifest into an unidentified IS, trapping the unconscious Laura inside. Ichika becomes angry by the fact that the IS is copying moves and attacks from her sister Chifuyu when she had an IS. With the help of Charles transferring some of his energy to Ichika, he was able to wound the IS, splitting apart the center and able to rescue Laura. The IS Tag Team tournament was cancelled. It was announced later that the newly built public bath for boys has finally open and Ichika and Charles try it out. In there, sitting back to back nude, Charles asks Ichika to call her Charlotte when they are alone, finally revealing her true name given by her real mother, and says that she’s decided to stay at the Academy. The next day, it was revealed to the class that Charles is actually Charlotte, a girl, formally transferring in as a new student. This sparks concern over the girls in the class, let alone the whole school. Suddenly Rinin comes crashing through into Ichika’s classroom wall in her IS with intent to attack Ichika. While everyone panics at first, Laura just in time intervenes and protects Ichika from the blast. Before Ichika was able to thank Laura, she forcefully kisses him! Much for the reaction of Cecilia, Rinin and Houki, Laura announces Ichika to be her wife with no objections!
Okay. May I just imply that CHARLOTTE WAS THE MOST BADASS PERSON THIS EPISODE. God how I loved every moment of that IS battle, Charlotte was so godly. Then it got even better at that BATH SCENE. Surprisingly even though Charlotte knows full well Ichika know’s she’s a girl, SHE GOES IN NAKED WITHOUT ANY HESITATION!! That – I say is bold.
I would’ve love to see that.
ICHIKA NO ECCHI——!!!
Fuck yeah!! Best scene EVAR!!
Oh ohh ohhh – then things just gets even better when Charlotte finally opens up to everyone that SHE’S A GIRL!! ZOMG her in dat new girls uniform, much more cuter than she was in the male outfit. I still wonder how the heck did she hide her breasts so effecively, man French tits and Dunois technology is so sophisticated 8D
HECK YEAH. I AM SO LIVING THE DREAM.
OH WAIT – NOW I see why I hated this ep as loved…
GERMANY YOU BASTARD. HOW DARE YOU DO THAT TO ICHIKA. EVERYONE KNOWS ICHIKA AND CHARLOTTE ARE THE OTP. MOREOVER, HOW FUCKING DARE YOU APPEAR IN TEH ED AND RELEGATE CHARLOTTE ALL THE WAY TO THE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCKING UNFORGIVABLE BRAH!!!!!! GERMANY YOU FUCKTARD, HOW COULD YOU EVEN DO SUCH A THING, AND EVEN CLAIMING HIM TO BE YOUR HUSBANDO!!!!! SERIOUSLY YOU ARE THE REASON INFINITE STRATOS IS GONNA GO DOWNHILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCKING RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE———————!!!!!!!1 OHHHH WHYYYYY IZURU YUMIZURU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111
Yes Charlotte, I mad. ;__;
But on a bright side, it was funny to see the other girl in Ichika’s Jelly Factory Harem’s reactions.
lol’d at Houki’s epic reaction ^o^
Overall, would say this is the best ep so far… but for now, let’s just say 5-7 is the best for meh ^_^/
I think I’m gonna dread the next ep, fucking Germany slag is gonna have her share of fan service too. Well it’s the fated Beach episode, so I might as well enjoy it. Ahh how I’m looking forward to Charlotte in a swimsuit :3
See you in next ep? We’ll see for now…
