* In episode 9 of the anime, when overhearing that choosing the wrong swimsuit could kill any chance of a relationship with Ichika, Laura calls her second in command for help with this situation. Seems like a silly thing put in for viewer humour, right? It actually makes perfect sense, since A) Laura has been raised in a military environment, and thus would confer with her command staff before proceeding with any decision she is unsure of, and B) her superiors are in the military as a job, and so would have ordinary lives outside of the military, and thus be able to help Laura, who has been shown to have [[NoSocialSkills poor social skills]]. It turns into Fridge Funny if put into context: Laura gets advice about dealing with Ichika from a fellow SuperSoldier who, funnily enough, is an OccidentalOtaku.
** On the topic of Schwarzer Hase, either the whole unit dressing like the [[ThoseWackyNazis SS]] brings UnfortunateImplications about the state of Germany in the setting - or it is in fact a CrossesTheLineTwice jab at Clarissa's clear-cut otaku behaviour having infected everyone else because not only do the girls dress more like cosplayers would (their uniforms all have ZettaiRyouiki), they also use the impossibly clichéd line "As expected of..." after Clarissa gave Laura some very helpful advice.

* Lingyin being the only one of the girls who realizes that Cecilia is a LethalChef probably stems from the fact that Ling herself used to be a pretty bad cook when she was younger.

* Lingyin being the only one of the girls who realizes that Cecilia is a LethalChef probably stems from the fact that Ling herself used to be a pretty bad cook when she was younger. That, and it's ''extremely'' suspicious that Houki, Charlotte, ''and'' Laura all take a sick day...right after Cecelia's been over to their places to "learn how to cook".

* In the light novel Ichika realizes the romantic potential in everything he's in. When Charlotte (as Charles) tells him (s)he thinks he's doing it on purpose, ''he really was''. He's GenreSavvy enough to know that if he tries to make a romantic move on anyone, then the rest of his harem would kill him. Charles, however, is also GenreSavvy, as she knows that being a tsundere will not score romantic points, so she becomes more Moe-ish and less violent in order to get his attention. And so far it ''works'', as Ichika is closer to her than the other girls.

** It probably because he is GenreSavvy enough to know that if he tries to make a romantic move then the rest of his harem would try to kill him(seriously all of his girls have assaulted him or try to kill him at least once).

* Unless stated otherwise, all entries belong to troper Rellevart (apologies for hogging Ichika's ObliviousToLove and how he sees the page):girls:



*** Rin's case isn't helped by the fact that, of the five girls, she is the shortest, looks younger than the others, and is rather flat-chested. Add in the fact that she is the only girl who Ichika hasn't had an [[AccidentalPervert Accidental Pervert]] moment with, and you can see Ichika percieving Rin less like a teenager entering womanhood and more like a girl.
*** Out of all five girls, Charlotte and Laura are the only two who Ichika seems to realise (and since this is [[ObliviousToLove Ichika]], that's a debatable point) may want more than a friendship. Why? Because of their interactions with him. Charlotte asked him to feed her, they shared a secret together for a while (the fact that Charlotte was a girl and not a boy), then later they used the men's bathhouse together (with them both naked), during which time she cuddled up to him and asked him to call her by her real name when they were alone ([[FridgeLogic despite revealing it, and her true gender, to the entire class the next morning...]]). As for Laura, she kissed him in front of his entire class, declared him her 'bride', then while he was sleeping sneaked into his room, and got into his bed and cuddled up to him while (she was) naked, only to follow this up in the morning with her putting him in an armlock whilst still naked when he woke up and freaked out (and consider where his elbow approximately was...).
*** As for Cecilia? She doesn't have a previous friendship with Ichika to make them close, nor has she acted in such a way as to suggest she want a relationship with him (that Ichika would recognise anyway), apart from a few things like getting him to apply suntan lotion on her back and taking up Ichika's offer to feed her, and Ichika did these because he said he would: 'a gentleman never goes back on his word'. As such, despite her efforts, they are still only good friends so far.
** In episode 9 of the anime, when overhearing that choosing the wrong swimsuit could kill any chance of a relationship with Ichika, Laura calls her superiors for help with this situation. Seems like a silly thing put in for viewer humour, right? It actually makes perfect sense, since A) Laura has been raised in a military environment, and thus would confer to her commanding officer before proceeding with any decision she is unsure of, and B) her superiors are in the military as a job, and so would have ordinary lives outside of the military, and thus be able to help Laura, who has been shown to have [[NoSocialSkills poor social skills]].
*** ''Point of Clarification'' though: in the anime, she calls Clarissa Harfouch - the ''Schwarzer Hase's'' current Vice-Captain (Lieutenant in the Light Novel) - for advice. The latter clearly addresses Laura as to her rank as Captain, meaning there was none of her superiors in Germany's special IS corps to help her with her social skills issues. It does however amounts to Fridge Funny (I doubt as to whether or not it counts as FridgeLogic) if put into context: Laura gets advice as to dealing with Ichika from a fellow SuperSoldier who, funnily enough, is an OccidentalOtaku. - [=CelPrevZero=]
** Why does Ichika, being the only male capable of piloting an IS, seem so calm when he must be a target for any and every country and organisation on both sides of the law? Simple: he's been kidnapped before, prior to his unique ability being discovered. The threat of kidnap has been present to him ever since Chifuyu won the 1st Mondo Grosso, and certainly clear in his mind ever since he was kidnapped during the 2nd Mondo Grosso. The only difference that the discovery of him being able to pilot an IS has made is that instead of being a target to these organisations in order to get at his sister, they will be targeting him specifically for him. So he's either (had to) come to terms with the fact that there is little he can do about it, and thus is getting on with his life, or he's (either consciously or subconsciously) suppressing the memories big time, which could in part explain his obliviousness.

**** That's part of the fridge brilliance [=handlehandle=]. The fact is, as the only known male capable of using an IS, Ichika must be wanted by dozens of organisations on both sides of the law. This knowledge should (and would) scare the crap of Ichika, except this threat has been present to him ever since Chifuyu won the 1st Mondo Grosso, and certainly clear in his mind ever since he was kidnapped during the 2nd Mondo Grosso. The only difference now is that, instead of being a target to these organisations in order to get at his sister, they will be targeting him specifically for him.
