The fist thing i can say is that it's interesting......first thing that sets it apart from all the other harem manga's is the all girl school where he is the only boy....something that personally i didn't meat till this.Also the idea for it is interesting also...a mecha/battle/romance....maybe it will turn out to be something good.So I'm keeping my eye for this one.

hello, at first the series is great, has everything and is fun, has a lot of potential to lift a second season, the plot so far is good
for me is just beginning, so there are some who speak for
not be so picky, you are not that
strive and work hard to make a good job
artistic, because the anime and manga is an art.
among all the series is very good I want to congratulate
Izuru YUMIZURU for their hard work, and Kenji AKABOSHI
if great job, congratulations to both and continue to
so please do not Parn the series in 12 episodes as I said
before has much potential.
well thanks for your attention and wish them well

PS: I like that the authors of
"infinite stratos" read this

-- ART: The Art was great. Sometimes inconsistent, but overall great.
Battle scenes were bad. It's like they tried to make it as intense as an anime and nothing was ever clear. I got to the point where I gave up on trying to figure out what I was seeing and just quickly eyed over the pages reading the dialogs until the battle stoped.

-- Setting: The setting was good. It reminded me a lot of freezing. The characters premisses were also great. They had very interesting and distinctive personalities, specially because they were from different countries and backgrounds, which helped enrih their special traits a lot. But... it only starts off well...

Whats wrong?

- Development: The development sucks. There's no building up to climaxes or any important situations. Setting and Character potential are lost in this mess. It's like when a little kid tries to tell a story but ends up saying every single thing too fast and forgets half the stuff they wanted to say to begin with.

For example, one of the girls would tell the character something important about their lives and I would think "Why are you even telling him that? You barely even know him", and I barely even knew them to begin with, which made me care much much less for whatever the hell they went through in their past.

I mean, in freezing, 40 episodes build enough expectation to make me REALLY pissed off about Satella's family when they bring the shit up.
Here, they condensed 125 episodes worth of story in only 25, it got rushed as hell.

When the side character DID know each other, it was because half the cast were childhood friends. Whaaat? This is the kind of forced situation created to explain whatever the mangaka needs to explain, which is only acceptable in oneshots, since the mangaka has only so many pages to draw interest.

Maybe they tried to do too much and ended up not doing anything? With all the premises thrown in the story, after reading it, I only remember the petty romance dramas.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He got kidnaped, so what?
She's a bastard child, so what?
Parents got divorced, so what?
Sister's attitude and shit broke family up, so what?
Got disowned by parents, so what?
Failed military experiment, so what?
legendary sister retires for mysterious reasons, so what?

Nothing ever got done with any of it.

Really for stories like this, I'm sure what's intersting for us readers is to find out what wacky ways will the author use to get a "typical nice guy" into a harem of beautiful ladies.

In Love Hina we have guy taking care of girl dorm.
In Sekirei we have guys fighting with female robots.
In To-love-ru we have guy attracting all the girls for the sole reason that he's nice.

Here we have guy enrolled to an all-girl school because he's like every other self-insert fantasy story, "special" that he gets to operate a suit that only girls can.

With that being the only "interesting" portion of the story gone. You can pretty much guess what the rest of the story will be about.

I like the art. The girls don't seem overly busty and the way IS works is very interesting. Other then that the way the story is voiced somehow draws me in.

On the other hand I do understand the other opinions. This particular mix is new for me. But lone boys in an all girls school or Being special in some kind of group of people with ultimate abilities are all stuff you may have seen before. When I was reading this I even thought I read it before but I still want to read on.

So let's say it really has a lot of potential but it could also turn out to be full of cliché's so I'll give it an 8+

It's a good manga, though it's kinda hard to feel for the characters. The girls all have semi-dark pasts, but they don't seem affected. Heck,

Ichika was kidnapped as a kid
, but you don't see any trace of trauma on him! It's a good manga, though, if you can endure through the usual harem mish-mash.

Doesn't really have an original concept (to strutz below - even the "lone male in female dominated school" thing has been done to death in dozens of mangas), but then again, being both original AND entertaining is certainly a hard feat to pull off these days. It does have nice art though, and since the main plot hasn't really been laid out yet, I guess I can't really complain about it in that aspect. Given that only two chapters are out, and both of them could be thought of as prologues, I'm not going to rate the series yet. Still, the fact that it already has such a high rating when it hasn't even started picking up yet is rather ... odd.

I did not get anything while reading this. Funny or exciting or sad. I do not get it all in the early chapters. Maybe I'll try to continue later, and hopefully just find something interesting.. .let's hope sad
