[New][October 2013] IS: Infinite Stratos 2

Summary: Second Season to the guy all alone in a metal suit, in a world of women in metal suits, Denser-than-leading his way through a cluster of girls that like him.

First Impression: More harem humor.

First Opinion:
Harem with robosuits and a high flying opinion about its own plot. That's about it. For me this shows worth will ride entirely on how the plot goes. I've had more than I could stand of harem well before the first season even came out. The first episode is...unique in this regard though. I can't say I've ever seen anything like condensing a swimsuit episode into half of an episode. It bespeaks good things if they're willing to do what is essentially a slap-in-the-face to fan service lovers. The logic that would normally go into it, is that some pressing need for more space later justifies the theoretical reputation damage it would cause...but this is the first episode. Just what are they trying to skimp for?
In any case, I find it in good taste, but that's just me.
