A new character is introduce, Sarashiki Tatenashi.

Analysis:

Nice to see a brand new season of IS and of course bringing smiles to all the Charlotte Dunois fans, including me. This episode was a bit slow for me. It speaks more of an extra episode than a mainstream one. Laura’s character has developed a bit more into the cuter side than being stern all the time, which is probably trying to build a bit more fan base; I am all for it. What interested me was, how was Charlotte’s cat costume; the tail, moving? Anyone who has an answer, I’ll like to hear from you. Anyway the maid/butler scene did have a Hayate no Gotoku feel about it, I may be wrong considering I have only watched 4 episodes of it (Maybe the talking tiger put me back…).

Someone is trying to steal a IS machine. Although the robber was using a IS suit or was it a rip-off? I thought that only Houki’s sister Tabane, was the only crazy one who built the machines. Hopefully, we would find out what is going on and with any of luck, the gang can stop the evil plot.
