    Really, Ichika’s denseness can be beyond belief sometimes. Honestly, dude, take a hint and pay attention to your surroundings!

    There was a lack of Tatenashi this time around but I like the parts where she did show up. That trick with the suitcase caught me off guard, even more when she turned up right next to the building. The girl must be a ninja. I had to laugh when Kanzashi stuffed her back in the suitcase. You can tell she’s intimidated by her big sister.

    I wish the parts about Madoka had more episodes to explain her story. First her target was Ichika but it’s actually Chifuyu. I can’t stand a rush job and next time is definitely going to be one.

      I’m gonna come right out and say it: IS 2 is a bigger trainwreck, and more disappointing than Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Brides. At least Samurai Bride had 5 episodes of plot development after that terrible Beach Contest episode. And that’s even though they completely threw away the plot development and picked a totally different tentacle monster to have to fight at the end.

      IS 2 is just a mess. Who’s the bad guy? Madoka? Phantom Task? Chifuyu-nee? And that there’s absolutely no clarity in the harem is a constant problem. I’d certainly expect to see more helping each other out, but the only ones we get doing that are Laura and Charlotte. Everyone else is completely focused on “Make sure nobody else gets ahead.”

        …I wonder if the novels were this terrible, or if it’s just the anime.

        • Highway says:

          The novels aren’t that good, at least the ones that I’ve read. I don’t know how much to blame on the translation and how much to blame on the writing itself. But I know that the DxD novels are *far* more interesting, funny, exciting, and deal with the harem stuff better. Ichika in the novels is nearly insufferable, he’s like Jack Lalanne or something, always talking about how something is good for the body and exercising and on and on and on.

          Really, I think DxD is the gold standard of the Goofy Harem / Fighting / ecchi genre. Better ecchi, better fighting, better harem.

      • BlackBriar says:

        That I can agree with. At least Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Brides had a solid enough story to make comprehension easy in spite of most things falling into the harem category. What makes it even more depressing is that IS 2 started off with intrigue so you’d think it wouldn’t be like the first season. The Phantom Task thing had such promise.
