Host: Shimoda Asami, Hikasa Youko
Guest: Yumizuru Izuru, okiura
Date: 2011.04.23

The two guests are the author of the original light novels and it’s artist and character designer. They had originally planned to come on episode 7 but due to the earthquake that happened at the time they couldn’t make it.

– Shimoda laughs that Hikasa always makes funny faces to the camera :D

– Do you ever think “Let’s kill them!”? (One of Lin’s lines)

Shimoda: Not really… We’re nice after all~
Hikasa: Yep yep! We’re angels! *holds hands together and looks to the sky… Then snorts in laughter*

– Who do you like the most out of the characters?

okiura: If I’m limiting it to the heroines only… I’d choose Houki, I have the most memories with her.
*Hikasa rejoices*

Yumizuru: They’re like my children! I love them all for their uniqueness.

Shimoda: So which one do you like the best?!
Yumizuru: Well… If I had to pick one…. Maybe…. Chifuyu?

– The radio had okiura draw Lin and Houki for them right there.

– Upon hearing how well the DVD/BluRays have been selling the two of them say “Let’s just do a second season now!” YESS I’M WAITINGGGG

– Interestingly enough they had the confession corner handled by Yumizuru for this episode and he wrote a confession from Houki and Lin’s character using the themes pulled out of the box. They then had the two seiyuu read them out in character.

The drawings that okiura did there ended up looking like this by the way:Ah I love the Infinite Stratos art style <3

Episode 8 of RADIO IS. Interestingly enough the radio actually fully intended to end on it’s 7th episode, the last episode but due to the radio’s popularity they had it extended. I’m so glad it didn’t end at it’s 7th episode :D

– Laughing at Houki’s role in the anime…

Hikasa: She’s like air! Always around, you don’t notice her but you need her!
Asami: She didn’t even wear a swimsuit!
Hikasa: She did at the very end so it’s fine!

Hikasa: Since everything’s been aired we can talk about anything we like now! …Like Houki! She was great in that last episode wasn’t she! Finally something to show that she’s the main heroine! *laughs*
Asami: Yeah for the past 7 or so episodes you were fretting about that weren’t you? *laughs*

Asami: And what about Lin?!
Hikasa: Err well.. For a couple of episodes at the start she was strong… Then she kinda disappeared *laughs*
Asami: …Yeah.

– Hikasa mentions that the first time she met Uchiyama Kouki was the recording for the Infinite Stratos PV.

– Hikasa laughs that their audio commentary for an episode of IS with Shimoda Asami was pretty chaotic lol.

– Asami laments that although the radio show has been extended past the 7th episode, she wishes the length of each episode had been extended as well and Hikasa agrees. That would be great D:

– Confession Corner! Hikasa’s turn with the theme “Cell Phone Strap”

Hikasa: With you as the cell phone, and me as the strap we’ll always be together! But if the strap breaks we’ll break apart! No!!! *lies back and dies of embarassment*

Next episode looks like it has the original author Yumizuru Izuru and and the light novel’s artist okiura as guests coming on to the show. Interesting, I wonder how it’ll turn out :O

RADIO IS Shucchouban

Name: RADIO IS 出張版
Host: Shimoda Asami, Hikasa Youko
Guest: Yukana
Date: Sometime in between 2011.1.15 and 2011.1.29

This was a special episode of RADIO IS that wasn’t broadcast but instead was given out as a special with the release of the first Infinite Stratos DVD/Bluray. The title translate roughly to “tour” in the “Live Concert Tour” meaning. The two of them were laughing at the meaning, giving the reason that they were probably touring around peoples home with this episode. This episode looks like it was recorded in between RADIO IS #2 and #3 so I can’t really guess the exact date but it should be in that vicinity.

– The two of them were feeling each other’s hair at the start of the radio. Haha it’s nice to have them sitting next to each other for once so they can interact with one another physically lol.

– The two of them shower Yukana with compliments on how pretty, cute and elegant she is lol.

– The three of them think that Cecillia is the most child-like out of the girls, and agree unanimously that Charlotte is the most adult-like of them.

– Interestingly they started with the confession corner early in the episode this time :O Yukana pulled out the theme “Bag of Rice”. For once… She didn’t die and break down in embarrassment lol. Where’s my burrrnn?! The other two laugh that this was probably the way the corner is supposed to be done, not their writhing in shame corner they have right now ahaha.

– Corner where they have to name the good points about Ichika.

Yukana: (“err… None?”)
– He treats everyone equally
– He can use chopsticks
– He can debone fishes
– His sister is strong

Hikasa: (“Bad points about him come to mind much easier…”)
– He’s occasionally masculine.
– He’s nice enough to feed people going “aaahn”
– His denseness makes him cute
– He’s good at massaging

Asami: (“Good points? I can only think of bad points about him”)
– He’s got a good voice.
– He says some cool lines
– He’s skilled at controlling the IS
– He’s annoying in just the right amount

Lol what is with these “compliments”? Haha, Ichika really isn’t popular with them.

– They had a shiritori corner with confessions.. WHICH WAS ONE OF THE FUNNIEST THINGS I’VE SEEN IN A WHILE LOL. Ahhh they just keep burning each other, I can’t really describe it but it was hilarious haha.

– Apparently Yukana had hugged Hikasa just recently, which Hikasa was embarrassed but happy about lol.

Oh wow this episode started off pretttty awkward as the two hosts were completely put off balance by Yukana’s atmosphere lol. The two of them just stumbled over their words and continuously showered her with love ahaha. Yukana seemed a bit fidgety from being hit by so much praise as well ahaha. Hikasa and Asami really are close though, it’s wonderful to see~ But honestly, Hikasa becomes best friends with pretty much everyone she talks to lol, wait I think I’ve mentioned this before haven’t I? I really admire and love that about her so much <3

It looks like their intended guest, the author of the light novels, Yumizuru Izuru, couldn’t make it for this episode :O The two of them continued calling this the final episode throughout the show. Ehhh is this really the last episode?!

– Ways to make each other blush…

Hikasa(Reading out mail from a listener): “The IS cast won’t lose to their characters in cuteness” *Hikasa smirks and laughs* “But is there something that makes you immediately embarrassed when you’re praised about?”
Asami: Having that said about us is pretty embarrassing already *laughs*
Hikasa: And the way the two of us blush and get embarrassed is pretty creepy! *laughs*
*Asami starts laughing, then stops and glares at her in mock anger*
Hikasa: *laughs even louder* Ooh You’re not happy with that last statement? Look at that face! Camera get that face!
*Asami turns her fake glare on the camera, then starts laughing*Hikasa: Whats with that face!
Asami: The way I blush is creepy?!
Hikasa: My nose flares when I get embarrassed!
Asami: That’s just you!

Hikasa: If someone says “I love you…” to me I’ll just go (Hikasa acts this out)*gasp* *sigh**laughs*
Asami: *laughs* Like (Asami copies what Hikasa did)”*gasp* *sigh*”?
*The two of them go on making sighing noises and gestures for a while lol*
Hikasa: Lets stop this already! You don’t need to follow me when I do stuff like this! *laughs*
Asami: I’m just wondering how long we could go on for just doing this *laughs*

Asami: All that love stuff is good too but… When I’m… Told I’m… Cute and stuff *smirks, squeals and embarrassedly covers her face with her hands*Hikasa: That’s pretty bad isnt it! Ahh that’s embarrassing! It’s like “Don’t say that! I’m not cute!” *strikes a pose*

Asami: Hiyocchi~
Hikasa: Mmm?
Asami: I love you~
Hikasa: *laughs* Stop it! *laughs embarrassedly and covers her face with her hands*Asami: Oh she’s done for.
Hikasa: Wait, my nose must be flaring like crazy *covers face*
Asami: Yeah please hold for a moment while we fix Hiyocchi~
*Video(and audio) cuts out with the text “Please hold for a moment”*

LOL What’s with these two?! OTL

– Would Ichika have ecchi books?

Asami: Would Ichika buy ecchi books?!
Hikasa: Wouldn’t… He?
Asami: He wouldn’t!
Hikasa: No he would! He would.
Asami: He’d have them?
Hikasa: Yeah, yeah his gender is a boy after all. As long as that’s so then he would.
Asami: No that’d be weird.
Hikasa: Would it?
Asami: He wouldn’t do something like that. But… He might have been excited when thinking about it.

Err would he? They didn’t reach a definite conclusion in the end haha.

– This is the final episode…

Hikasa: It looks like this is the last episode… But wait! There’s an important announcement!
Asami: An important announcement?! Whatever could it be?!
Hikasa: The radio has… Been extended!! YAAY!!
Asami: YAAAY!!
Hikasa: HAHAH! Last episode?! Fooled you all!

Or something like that, I knew it harhar. Well I am watching it over half a year later and all though lawl.

– The two of them laugh that they may be able to bring the last member of the Infinite Stratos main cast, Uchiyama Kouki on the show with this extension. They’ve always made fun of him by forgetting his character when talking about the main characters and apparently he himself has heard about them doing this lol.

– Confession corner featuring Asami! The theme for this episode is “Alarm Clock”.

Asami: *pippipipi* *pippipipi* *pippipipi**bang!* *Stares at camera* It’s morning! *keeps staring… Then breaks down in embarrassment*

I don’t think anyone has any idea what she intended to do with this lol OTL
But the burn was still as great as ever :D

So it looks like the radio will continue to it’s 11th episode or so. Also I never noticed it before and it might just be me but… The combination of her clothing, hairstyle and the low video quality is making Asami look like Mizuki Nana to me hah.

Guest: Inoue Marina
Date: 2011.03.12

Inoue Marina guesting on RADIO IS :D Amusingly Marina opens with “Guten Morgen!“, German for “Good Morning!” which completely confuses Hikasa lol, she had no idea what it meant so she laughed that Marina just opened with gibberish.

– Yukana had appeared in a previous event with them already so they mentioned that the whole main cast had appeared with them already… But then they gasp and realise that… They’ve forgotten poor Uchiyama Kouki, the main character ahaha.

– Marina and Asami laugh that Hikasa would look with an eyepatch and Asami sweetly offers to give her one, while holding up her fist lol.

– Asami laments that Lin’s role in the anime has become pretty murky, laughing that she hasn’t had much of a chance with Ichika lately haha. Marina laughs that Lin’s pretty much become a comedic relief character which Asami tries to stop her from saying out loud.

– On the other hand Hikasa says that Houki has pretty much done nothing but call out “Ichika!” the whole anime ahaha.

– The three of them scream that Charlotte is getting so far ahead with Ichika ahaha. YES CHARLOTTEEEEEE~!

– Marina embarrassedly admits that she’s called a sound director “sensei” instinctively, a reflex from when she responded to a school teacher.

– The three of them mention how much they love the members of the Infinite Stratos cast and how friendly they are with one another <3

– Confession corner, Marina version! The theme today is “Parfait”. Amusingly Marina pulled out a theme and then shoved it back in the box as soon as she read it ahaha. The other two laugh and tell her off for it. I wonder what it was :O

Marina: *Quietly taps a plastic bottle* This parfait is pretty tasty… I’ll.. Give you a bite… *offers spoon*

Ahaha Marina looked so embarrassed which made it sooo cute jsdafkjadslfkjads. It’s hilarious how they break down in embarrassment every time >:D

Err they announce that the next episode is the final episode where they have the author of light novels, Yumizuru Izuru, coming in… But I thought there were 11 episodes? Well we’ll see what’s up on the next episode I guess. :O
Oh and about the RADIO IS spam… I’m completely in love with it at the moment so that’s pretty much the reason =P (Also visuals are fun :D)

I’m really in love with this radio series <3 A shame there’s only 11 episodes :(

About Uchiyama Kouki at the recordings.

Hikasa(Reading out mail from a listener): “What is Uchiyama like during the recordings as he’s surrounded by girls? Is he loved by everyone? Is it a harem?!”
*Asami laughs*
Hikasa: Why did you burst laughing? *laughs*
Asami: Well every time I look at him he looks pretty bored in the recordings *laughs*
Hikasa: Bored? He’s like the grandfather there watching over us. And I’m like “Oi! You’re surrounded with girls! You should be enjoying this!” I really love the IS recordings!

– Hikasa mentions that she loved the scene where Uchiyama and Hanazawa Kana adlibbed in episode six where Charlotte had Ichika feed her some fish since she didn’t know how to use chopsticks. Err I couldn’t quite remember what scene they were talking about until I went to check it up and found it amusing that it was adlibbed. I’m guessing a lot of people can’t remember the scene as well so I’ll put down what I think was adlibbed.

Charlotte: Umm I’d like some rice next…
Ichika: Ah, rice? Sure, give me a second.
Ichika: Here, say “aahn”
Charlotte: “aahn~”
*I suspect this part onwards was the adlibbed part*
Ichika: Oh you’ve got a grain of rice stuck on you.
Charlotte: Oh! …Take it off for me~
Ichika: Huh? I guess I have to then.
*Charlotte giggles*

AHH INFINITE STRATOS~! AHH CHARLOTTE~! <3 <3 If you haven’t realised, I’m a very avid Charlotte fan askjdfkljdsljadfa CHARLOTTE~! <3 <3
Err yeah anyways back to the radio. Hikasa laughed that watching the scene as Houki made her very unsettled about how far Houki’s falling behind, or rather how far ahead Charlotte is getting in the love race haha.

– The two of them try to touch their elbow with their chin and laugh that they look ridiculous while doing it. As you may know most people can’t touch their elbow with their chin due to, well, normal human anatomy. Oh and, hands up if you gave it a try after reading this ahaha o/ (I couldn’t do it too lol)

– A listener sends in a confession from Ichika towards Houki as “I love you! I want to be your dustpan!” to which the two of them burst out laughing. For those that don’t get it, the word “Houki” can mean broom in japanese lol.

– Hikasa mentions that she’s been miscalled “Hisaka-san” quite often lol. Reminds me of the LonE and Nipponsei tagging incidents on the K-ON songs and more ahaha.

– Confession corner! This time handled by Hikasa with the theme as “Low in Sugar” or in japanese as “Bitou

Hikasa: *sighs* My heart is low in sugar! Bitou! BitouBit..ter… Bitter… Bitter! Bittersweet! *falls over in embarrassment taking down the poster next to her along with her*

Lol this confession corner is definitely the highlight of each episode :D

The next episode is the episode where they had Hanazawa Kana guest on the show, which I actually wrote something about already a few months back at So it’s onwards to episode 6 with Inoue Marina coming in to guest!

Asami mentions that she watched the previous episode of RADIO IS on her own and laughed at how much Hikasa moved with her gestures while Asami in comparison had seemed like she just sat still and spoke. She decided that she should move more as well lol.

– Hikasa laughs that with Lin/Rin’s appearance in the anime, Houki’s already small screen time is just getting shorter ahaha.

– Oh it was Asami’s birthday :O They celebrated it on the show \o/

– They brought in a cake for Asami but instead of her name “Shimoda Asami” they had the name “Shimoneta Asami” written on it ahaha. Err I’ll just paste what I wrote about the Shimoneta thing from my Soup miniblog a while back:

“Shimoneta = Dirty jokes/material. The joke is a play on her name. Her actual name is written “下田” while what’s written is “下ネ田”, “下” is read as “Shimo”, the “ネ” is katakana for “ne” and “田” can be read as “ta” or “da”. Also she seems to like(?) this kind of humour, which was emphasised on Infinite Stratos’ radio.”

Hikasa laughs that it must’ve been embarrassing asking the cake shop to write it lol.

– The two of them find out for the first time that “Cosplay” comes from “Costume Play” lol

– This week’s confession handled by Asami! The theme she pulled out this time was “Sakura”.

Asami: *stares up at the invisible sakura* Ahh the sakura blossoms are so beautiful~ Ah! *pretends to catch a falling sakura petal* This is… A sakura petal– No wait! It’s a message… From you! “Please fall gently beside me” *gasps* Okay! *grasps it to heart*

Asami then broke into laughter and embarrassment right after ahaha. I would feel sorry for them having to go through this every episode… But I’m too busy laughing >:D

I know I haven’t written anything about this radio in months and months but… I’m still interested in finishing it! …Eventually D:

– Hikasa laughs that she thinks her normal expression looks like a fish, Asami says it’s probably because her eyes are so big and Hikasa then widens her eyes and stares into the distance to show it and Asami laughs ahaha.

– The two of them try to move their ears on camera but are unable to do it and they look hilarious while trying it ahaha.

– Corner where the listeners give reasons why they think Ichika would be the only male able to pilot the IS.

Asami(Reading out loud): “Because Ichika wears womens underwear”
*They both pause and glance at each other, then break out laughing*
Hikasa: …Ichika’s wearing womens underwear? *laughs*
Asami: *laughs* Thats what it says.
Hikasa: Well… It’s not impossible! *laughs* But seriously, theres stuff like bras for men now!
Asami: …Huh?

– This time it’s Hikasa’s turn to do a love confession. I can’t remember if I described it properly on a previous post but near the end of the radio one of them is chosen to pick a theme from a box at random and make a love confession out of it. Basically it’s there to make the poor seiyuu squirm in embarrassment for our enjoyment >:D This episode’s theme is “Guitar”.

*Hikasa stands up and pretends to smash something into the table*
Hikasa: …Would you… Like to be broken like this guitar?
*Asami laughs*
*Hikasa breaks down and sinks to the floor*
Asami: Hikasa’s broken down!

Ah I miss Infinite Stratos~ Where is that second season?!

Guest: Hanazawa Kana
Date: 2011.02.26

Hanazawa Kana guest~~~ Since it’s a video broadcast you can see where they edit and cut parts out of the episode. I wonder what we’re missing out on lol. Kana’s been doing a whole heap of radio work recently <3

– The two of them had caught the same train to the studio, though from different studios without planning to meet up.

– Kana stuffed up her character name when she came in ahaha.

– Hikasa makes fun of Kana’s shirt lol.

– Kana says that she’d love to try crossdressing, and the other two agree.

– Kana and tsukkomi’ing
Kana: “Sometimes I don’t know how to tsukkomi Hikasa…”
Hikasa: “You do some really great tsukkomis though”
Shimoda: “Yeah, she seems like the tsukkomi type”
Hikasa: “The ones that hurt are the best ones, just do those. They feel great. Because I’m M.”
Lol Hikasa

– Kana had to make a confession using “Nattou” lol “I hope we can have a relationship where we stick to each other like nattou~” lol. This corner is just here to embarrass the poor seiyuu ahaha. She chucks the paper at the camera :D

Tiny notes don’t do this radio show any justice, it’s so funny you really need to see the video :D.

Radio for the Infinite Stratos anime a week before the TV broadcast hosted by Hikasa Youko(Shinonono Houki) and Shimoda Asami(Lin Yin Fang). Interestingly enough the radio is video recorded, I can’t even remember the last time I’ve seen an anime radio with a video recording on every episode, actually has there ever been one? :O

– Asami had some make up problems mid way through the show and they paused the radio so she could take care of it lol.

– The two of them laugh at how hard it is to say Hikasa’s character’s name. “Shinononononononononono” (lol) Also “Sharuru”rururururu.

– They comment that there are lots of tsundere characters in the anime.

– One of the corners have listeners sending in reasons why they think the main character is the only boy who can pilot the IS. The things the two of them mentioned were
Hikasa: “Maybe he’s physically weak or something?”
Asami: “Maybe he’s actually a girl!”
Also: “The IS are attracted to girls… But sometimes they have the urge to go for a boy every now and again” ahaha.

– Hikasa calls her “Pon” from her nickname “Asapon” lol her name’s pretty much gone at that point.

– At the end Asami is made to say a confession picked randomly from themes inside a box. This episode was “Chocolate”
Asami: “Rather than chocolate, please take my sweet love instead!” *hands paper to the camera*
*Asami dies of embarassment while Hikasa goes silent*
Asami: “Oi say something!!”
*Hikasa stays silent*
Asami: “Say something!!!” *Radio cuts off and ends there lol*
Ahahaha poor Asapon. It was P. cute though <3

It’s a pretty fun radio show, I’m not sure if I’ll follow it every episode but I’ll keep an eye on it . Shimoda and Hikasa get along pretty well with each other. Well actually is there anyone that Hikasa doesn’t get along well with? :O

Where Am I?
