Epic battle between Ichika and Rin!
The Inter-Class Tournament begins and Rin and Ichika are battling it out in their IS suits. But their match gets interrupted when a mysterious IS attacks the arena.
As Rin and Ichika fight the mysterious IS, in order for the students to evacuate, the two realise that it is in fact an unmanned IS drone (in other words, piloted by a computer) due to its mechanical-like behaviour. The three of them, including Cecilia, defeat the IS.
Though just before they defeat the IS, it manages to injure Ichika. As Rin watches over the recovering Ichika, the two discuss about their childhood promise, and whether it had a different meaning, to which Rin denies.
Meanwhile, Maya and Chifuyu examine the IS drone and confirm that it’s an unmannered IS with a unique Core that isn’t part of the 467 confirmed Cores.
To be honest I am starting to lose my interest in IS. There’s too much lovey-dovey harem kind of thing going on. It’s already episode 4 and they are still introducing characters into the anime. I honestly think this anime will leave many people questioning its plot at the end (unless they read the manga or make a season 2). It’s great to see a love story within a mecha genre but, seriously a harem…?
Boy Meets Boy
He really does look like a chick.
