@Marshal Victory: I think it would be much better if it's just two girls. That way Ichika might actually be able to choose one.

For me Houki is way better than any of the other gals, it's not even a contest at this point.

@bigz007: Ya i agree. Also he seems um dumber than 1st season an the ova .Also agree to on Houki Shinonono .In the ova it leaned heavy to her favor to.

Is it a thing now for harem males to get dumber in the second season?This an Freezing seem to have that going on.Hope its not a new trend.Next they will have them with sissors to!

If you think about it Freezing isn't a harem anymore. The "main protagonist" is reduced to be a supporting character in the 2nd season.

@bigz007: Agreed again.The main characters from the 1st series are secondary characters in some of the episodes even back ground characters.Tho it did have a few harem centric episodes .Atm i prefer IS over Freezing tho im watcing both still.Freezing does win on opening song tho.

IS have better animation, that is for sure.

Considering character development, Freezing is doing a great job this season (regarding main characters ofc), and I kinda feel IS is missing out on that. Well, IS have too many characters so it's hard to make those character develop in a way to develop them all at the same time. I'm saying that they should be develop at the same time because if one or two characters get more development then we will lose that feeling that all out the harem girls have the same chance with Ichika. I feel that the author/creator don't want to make one girl to stand out from all of the other girls, and that is the reason why he keeps expanding the harem.

Opening songs are just average for both shows, in my opinion.

I'm looking forward to an episode where Ichika will finally make his decision.

@bigz007: But wouldnt that end the harem series? I can only think of one series that went on after the lead made the pick.. The Familiar of Zero

.Then again there is enuff back ground in the world to do more stories to.

I'd hate to see this season end on a tease, but I guess you are right. As much is I like to see things resolved, that is just how harem series works.

Found that Charlotte manga: IS Honey and Sugar

Did you watch this show in dub? I don't know why I kept watching it in dub. I'm at the beach episode. Charlotte's French accent turns everyone off except me. I kind of like it. I realize that this show must be the first English dub that uses accents, from German to British and now French.

I did experiment myself with dub and subbed shows. The whole mother goose thing is true. When you watch a show in dub or sub, you probably won't like the other one. I had watched this show in dub first by accident. I didn't know where you watch IS legally online. I use Youtube to watch IS. I can't watch Infinite Stratos in subbed. I hated it in subbed. I missed Charles's French accent.

@takashichea: Sorry, I meant to reply to you last week. Oh god, I just checked out the dub, the accents are so bad! Or at least they seem bad to me, I don't hear a lot of French or German people speaking English so I guess I could be wrong. Charlotte doesn't sound cute at all! "You're a pervert!" in a harsh French accent isn't even close to "Ichika no Ecchi" in Japanese.

Don't even get me started on Cecilia. It's probably because I'm English myself, but whenever I hear an American doing a fake English accent (and it's always posh/royal English, too) it annoys me. It seems so exaggerated and snobby.

@Daniel_Newton:

I hate Cecilia Alcott's voice, too except for the part where she got massaged. I never heard a good VA speaking with a good Brit accent. I guess I'll search for the VA. When I saw in dub, I was actually tricked into believing Charlotte was a guy because of her manly voice. In the subbed version, you can tell that girl is a chick. I find the accents terrible, too, but I find it entertaining. I probably keep watching in dubbed. I hope season 2 gets dubbed soon.

Yeah, that's probably what they were doing for. It's actually not a bad dub and I could probably get used to the accents, but I definitely prefer the original Japanese. Ichika no ecchi all the way!

@takashichea: As a genral thing the subs voice actors have more often then not at least the genral emotion ment for story.It tried Cowboy Bebop both ways an its one of the few i enjoyed dubed.An subtitled was the 1st one i tried.Depending on the series Ghost in the shell i prefer dubed.An usualy i try the subtitles 1st.

It could well be we do a first visiual an audio trigger then when we hear the difrent autio its on autopilot to be wrong in our minds.Or more often then not "feel" wrong.This series i prefer subtitles an actualy on the second season i think one of the characters had a voice change ?
