Infinite Stratos 2 – 01
Ichika wakes up from a nightmare to find that Laura has once again snuck into his bed. She presents to him a poster advertising a summer festival and asks him to go with her. Ichika agrees and suggests that they invite everyone, to which Laura responds by stabbing the wall with her dagger before storming out of the room.
Ichika takes the poster around to all the girls and invites them out to go to the festival. In the meantime, Charlotte takes Laura out to search for some cuter clothes to wear. While at a cafe, they get recruited to work part time as waiters. Robbers suddenly burst through the doors, but luckily for everyone, the two girls make quick work of the criminals.
The day of the festival finally arrives and Ichika shows up to a group of pissed off girls who all thought they were going on a one on one date with him. However, they all end up having a good time.
Well, after this first episode I was quickly reminded why I held off on watching the first season until it was over. Infinite Stratos isn’t THAT bad, however its just not good enough for me to be genuinely excited about it every week. But the thing that frustrates me the most is that it could probably have been a solid first episode if not for all the over the top girl fantasy day dreams, and hoards of people following Charlotte/Laura around looking for photo ops. I guess it’s just the first episode and it was a pretty good introduction for all the characters so I’ll cut IS some slack, but I definitely won’t be following this show on a consistent basis.
P.S. – Why the hell would robbers with access to high explosives choose to rob a freaking cafe? That place must have some amazing coffee.
