Laura's transformation into an adorable moe blob was the best part of Infinite Stratos.

Her character was terrible until this.

I respectfully disagree

Why does an anime need to have substance to be good? Can't you just enjoy it for its cuteness?

The Mickey Mouse cartoons and most early western cartoons were very simple, but people still enjoyed them. It's no different, this is just cute jokes instead of slapstick jokes.

What is the point in rooting for anyone other than Houki when they're obviously not going to win and it has been obvious from the first episode?

It's just not going to happen. If he gets with anyone other than the Japanese childhood friend then it's a form of nationalist cuckolding to every Japanese person that watches this.

Laura might win because Japan is filled with neo-nazis.

Rin doesn't stand a chance though. It's insulting enough to the Japs to even have a Chinese character in the harem.

Nazis and Oktoberfest are the most recognizable aspects of Germany. If there's a German character in a Japanese show then they're either going to be dressed like a Nazi or they will be in lederhosen, chugging beer, and wearing those silly hats.

Similar uniforms don't have to mean anything and they're more like the equivalent to today's Luftwaffe or the Bundeswehr.

I doubt that the average Japanese person even knows what modern day German military uniforms look like.

Laura isn't an actual Nazi and IS Germany is probably the Germany of our universe, but her character design is clearly based around Japan's very positive perception of Nazis. Hell, she was raised in a test-tube to basically be the ultimate embodiment of the ubermensch concept that the Nazis loved so much.

This is hardly new. Nazis are relatively popular in Japan and there's not the stigma about it that we have in the west. Look at games like Daiteikoku where one of the main characters is:

>Retia Adolf - Fuhrer and Idol of the Dokutsu Third Reich.
>The Greatest Genius in the Universe — she dramatically revolutionized the Third Reich's politics, economics, inventions, and military. While a tactical and economic genius, she pays no attention to her self-maintenance, which makes Göbbels an important figure in polishing her current status as an Idol.
>>
>>100943813
She only called them undeserving of Chifuyu's instruction because most students are not even serious.
>>
>>100944543
Well, as said the uniforms look alike, but even Yumizuru hasn't taken advantage of them as selling point, almost no screentime or official art with them and nor merchandise as far as I know.
>>
>>100944711

It's probably because Laura doesn't get a huge amount of screen time. I doubt they have any reservations about showing more of Schwarzer Hase because I've never seen anyone in Japan give a shit about being associated with Nazis, it's just that she's not important enough to justify the extra work of making all that new art and merchandise for the girl that's not really even close to winning.

The nationalism and Naziboo aspects of Girls und Panzer was even more blatant than in IS. Japan just loves Nazi Germany.
>>
>>100945107
This is IS, no one is close to winning because the status quo keeps "resetting" or just changing like every volume or so, if it were to end in the next volume (which I seriously doubt) any choice but open ending would seem weird to me. All of the heroines have plenty of outfits too, it's all more or less balanced.
>>
>>100942239
I love Houki

Infinite Stratos is complete shit though.

I'm actually not that big on reading fiction, or if I do it has to be as down-to-earth as possible.

2017 at the earliest.

Way too far down the line for a third season. New seasons are either made in one year or two. When you go past three, things look bleak.

There are very few examples of a series having a new season after three years, very few.

The whole point of selling something is to make money dickwad. If you want to make something on your own time and effort for free to satisfy your personal creativity, go ahead. But don't for one second feel entitled to someones money for the shit unless you're willing to make something that fits THEIR needs and not your own
