Pilot was ok. Not super great but it had a few funny bits. Series should have tag of fan service tho.

@Marshal Victory:

It felt pretty generic to me. Reminds me of Infinite Stratos where a guy is transferred to a school of girls because he's the first guy in a long time to have a special ability (operate IS or magic).

@takashichea: @Supreme Marvel: Ya Taka is right I had that IS <Infinite Stratos> feel when watching it. But the main character seems like hes more like the one from Unbreakable Machine Doll me thinks.

Like I said not great not bad few laughs an average I would say so far.

@Marshal Victory:

The main character from Unbreakable Machine Dolls wasn't that bold with girls and trying to tease one girl with a kiss. He reminds me of Akatsuki but less perverted and less Gary Stu.

@takashichea: Thats fair enuff. It just reminded me more of a combination of those shows. Main character here does not seem to be the harem punching bag type an nor was the main from Unbreakable Machine Doll.

Episode 2 was average. Nothing great. A few plot holes or at the very least character establishment problems. Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero main character had bravado that this main character seems to want to have but wavers. Long as it stays average even generic average I will watch to see if it gets over that. But yeah it feels like the grandchild of quite a few harem battle anime.

edit had wrong show number /sigh

All right, I say it's the love child of Familiar of Zero and Infinite Stratos. Ep 2 wasn't bad and it had more action and less fan service.

ED song emphasizes legs and thigh.

Episode 3 was the revenge of the debut of the loli. Or something like that. Was not bad not great tho. Watchable an the plot thickens. Which is most always a good thing.

@takashichea: this has shades of Dragonar Academy. Replace dragons with spirits kinda sorta. Also I liked Familiar of Zero an if not mistaken the writer got to see his work done into a anime before he passed on? Memory fails atm an I'm gonna blame this on the sinus infection from heck. Thinking a exorcist for it may be more useful than a doctor atm :/

The only deep thing I got from the series is that the harem lead was a tool before and made to kill. The irony is that women are making him their servant. Since this and Hsmatora are my only shows for Monday, I watch both then.
