/a/


Why do some people seem to hate Infinite Stratos so much?

Do men actually hate this show or is it just disgruntled women lurking around on /a/ that can't appreciate a good harem anime?
>>
I don't like to watch the objectification of women.
>>
>>100849388
It's not even a good harem anime.

IS a shit

What the fuck you talking about?
It's /a/ core. Look there's still Laura thread in catalog.
>>
Real question is why Japan actually like this.
>>
>>100849388
i like it. its not the best anime, but its fun to watch.

Whoever decided the core then needs to die. I certainly wasn't invited to that conference.

Because of this.

I will drop anything that uses this shit. It sets a terrible precedent of laziness and if anime that does this is allowed to succeed then before you know it we will be watching nothing but moeblobs superimposed on top of photographs.

Why bother drawing a classroom when they can just take a picture of an actual classroom? Why bother drawing a street when they can take a picture of the street outside the studio? Why bother drawing anything other than the characters when you can just grab your camera and take a picture? It would be AWFUL.

You're supposed to draw what's in the scene. You're not supposed to take pictures of real objects and paste them in because you're too fucking lazy to draw anything other than cute girls.

It's fun to watch and I like it for what it is.

I don't understand these elitist types who only want to watch deep and depressing anime like Kaiji. Don't you feel emotionally exhausted from watching nothing but depressing things? I know that I couldn't take it.

First season was slightly above average but the second season was unforgivable.

What can be called a plot amounts to "let's put our donkan MC into very light ecchi situations and have the girls violently overreact"
>>
>>100850169
IS isn't even fun, it's infuriating.
>>
>>100849388
>incompetent boring mc
>3/5 of the main girls are tsunderes of the worst kind (think louise)
>generic harem hijinks which also include misheard confessions, DENSE mc and ICHIKA NO ECCHI/BAKA and him getting shot

the only cool thing about IS is the nation rivalry and the mechs. And Chifuyu.
>>
>>100849388
>>Why do some people seem to hate Infinite Stratos so much?
Because it's not Bakemonogatari
>>
It's generic as generic gets
>MC who has magical unexplained powers
>girls want his dick for no reason (I'm talking about the childhood friends, the background girls's lust is kinda understandable because he's the only guy at school)
>AN ALL GIRL SCHOOL WITH ONE BOY?!??!? GEE WHAT COULD HAPPEN
>Terrible plot with stupid villains
>Godawful CG
Despite all that, I'm still lonely enough to watch it........
>>
>>100850489
I'm not, the second season was such a departure from the source I just dropped it... had
>>
>>100849388
I'm the biggest IS fan in the world, but I fucking hate the plot. I only exclusively watch for Laura Bodewig. It you want plot, you have another thing coming
>>
>>100850222

>it's infuriating

Why? I could understand if you said boring, but what's infuriating about it?
>>
I watch it for the nationalism.
>>
>>100849388
I watched the dub, it was fun. Better than the jap dub for sure.
>>
I can appreciate a good harem, but IS is not one.
The plot is damn awful too, they should just take out the mechs and make it 100% harem shenanigans.
>>
>>100850192
And that's why Kanzashi is the best girl.
>>
>>100850192
>First season was slightly above average
When did they replace bad by average?
>>
redhead bro said it, ichika is dumb and i feel for the other girls who have to put up with it, but IS is not a bad anime, it's slightly above the other harem stories, while managing to have an extreemly dense MC


>>100854698
kanzashi is the only reason to watch s2
>>
>>100854698
Someone post the princess carry pic.
>>
Season 1 was ok and season 2 killed it. My enthusiasm for this series has reached absolute zero.
>>
>>100850251
Pretty much what the greentext says.

I am okay with modern tsunderes, but it is only okay if there is just one character of such. When you have 3 characters of such, then it just sucks, especially when marred with:
>ICHIKA NO ECCHI/BAKA and him getting shot

Want to kill it off with fire.
>>
>>100855347
Ichika is not an esper who can read someone's mind, especially if they kick you in the crotch or slap you in the face for no reason.
Heck he even ask for it in early volumes about what actually the girls want but their tsundere disease and 'womenly pride' refuse to explain.

Because the main character is a stupid fucker, the girls are all two dimensional, and their "character development" is based solely on a character that's as intelligent as a brick of pig shit.
>>
>>100856154
what about tatenashi?
what about the " oh no! i must fold my eyes to take the girls proportions!" ?
i can't deny i was probably as dense as he is when i was 14, but when you go to highschool, you must at least know the basics
>>
>>100849388

It's because, just like Natsuru of Kampfer, Ichika isn't human.

He's a fucking golem made of some kind of failed retarded mud that can't even understand subtle behavior in women that like him.

I mean shit, even Monkey D. Luffy knows Boa Hancock is after him, and he's generally considered an idiot.

>Recently get off the TTGL/Geass wagon

>Hey this Infinite Stratos seems popular
>Why don't i ch-
>It's harem

Why the fuck you you take something great like mecha, and add in some of the worst characters ever. Not to mention it's full of the shitty tropes plagueing harem

sage for blogshit
>>
>>100855857
>3 modern tsunderes
Aside from Houki and Rin, who?
>>
>>100856642
that's because ichika is pretending to be dense.
he's trying to see which girl loves him the most, which one can stand every retarded retork he gives, which one can win.
there must be only one
the D. hunger games (because they want the D)

ixhika is the keikaku harem man.
all hail ichika!
>>
>>100856415

>the girls are all two dimensional

All women are two dimensional. If you want good personalities then watch something with all male characters.
>>
>>100856685

IS took something shitty like mecha and made it good with something great like harems.
>>

>>100855347
>muh Onee-chan is so much better then me is the only reason to watch S2

More like I watched S2 because of delicious Chiwa Sato teasing onee-chan.

No offense to Kanzashi, but if 8bit was assed to do a proper adaptation, she would have only showed up in the last 4 episodes, which quite honestly was all she really needed/deserved.

Fucking around with the pacing to introduce Kanzashi earlier was pointless because she didn't even show up outside of her arc all that much.
>>
Its a generic harem that's over hyped.
>>
>>100859250
No one is going to hype this anal seepage after season 2.
>>
>>100857768
You should really kill yourself.

Mecha certainly isn't at the top, but harem is beneath a steaming pile of shit. It's undoubtedly the worst genre, alongside Powerlevels battle-manga
>>
>>100857304
>Being this delusional

Ichika is just a dense faggot designed for the intended audience to self insert into
>>
It's not a good harem anime, it's a terrible harem. The girls are awful and exactly the same and pretty much interchangeable, except for France who is slightly more mild.

This by itself makes it bad, but what makes it bafflingly awful is its insane popularity and the fact that it sells like hotcakes with crack sprinkles.
>>
>>100860455
Leave it to Charfags to be retarded.
>>
>>100861267
Can you not read? Even he says Char is bad, just not as bad as the rest. The lesser of the evils, the shiniest turd. He still saying she's bad.

It's one of the worst offenders of being generic haremshit out there. And no, the girls don't make up for it
>>

How can anyone expect that anyone else will win?

Japanese girl gets with Japanese boy. Anything else would be a form of national cuckolding.
>>
>Why do some people seem to hate Infinite Stratos so much?
What I don't understand is why people like it so much. It's a good harem, but I'd never have guessed that this of all harems would be the one to really stick on /a/. I expected it to be forgotten like every other seasonal harem.

The show has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The characters are shit, the plot is shit, the animation is shit, the fan base is shit.
>>
>>100849388
It has poor writing, bad plot, and for some reason sold exceptionally well. People are butt hurt about it because it got a second season and other series didn't

What I'm sick of are these cookie cutter looks and archetypes that always win. You could look at the characters in IS and know who will win with no knowledge of the characters or what IS is. Everything about Houki says WINNER. It's stupid.
>>
>>100865867
Welcome to genre conventions, next you're going to complain about multiple girls being infatuated with the MC for no good reason in a harem anime.
>>
>>100865643
Maybe only your taste is shit, the anime is the best seller of the past season.
