Needs Testosterone Therapy

So I got into a discussion over at Steven’s place about who the male lead most in need of some testosterone was. Steven and J. Greely are holding out for Kio, who somehow never quite seems to notice he’s got three hot girls after him. I disagree, as he had enough self-consciousness to be embarrassed by Eris’ request for him to be her first partner when she went into heat.

On the other hand, there’s Ichika from Infinite Stratos, who can’t seem to get it, even under this set of provocations:

Then Houki comes in…

I’d thought there’d been a stripping incident that he’d brain-farted on, but then I remembered that no, that was the other moronic mack-daddy from Kurogane no Linebarrels. Or maybe not so moronic, he actually does seem to have some testosterone. I mean first there was that incident in the locker room…(slightly less NSFW)

But I still say, lock the door after the second one joins the strip party, unless you’re feeling really ambitious.

Enh, ok Hayase knows what girls are for at least. Ichika…not so much.

    Kio doesn’t need testosterone; given his extensive under-the-bed collection of titles like Kyonyuu Club, (Op)pai-panic, and volume 19 of Low-angle Photos Featuring School Swimsuits, it’s clear that he has a healthy, well-developed interest in healthy, well-developed females. He doesn’t exactly discourage Eris from running around the house in an open white shirt, after all, and when more is displayed, he gets a good long look before he looks away (or gets attacked by Manami for not looking away fast enough…).

    Perhaps the best word for him is baffled. The concept of women being interested in him as a man simply Does Not Compute. Getting an offer to “pay the rent” can’t have helped his confidence, either.

  2. And Manami was right when she said that Kio was aware of Aoi as a girl. So I do have to concede that Kio is definitely past puberty. I think that J is right about the correct diagnosis.

    Yeah, there may be some self-confidence issues there. Hard to reconcile that with a guy that took on a military base armed with only a snub-nose pistol.

    It’s like he can handle anything except normal life. Makes one wonder what his absent parents are like. (no real mention of them in the Wikipedia entry, other than to say that they’re gone so much that the house/embassy is in his name)

    Maybe they’re the parents from Akane-iro?

  6. Seems like there’s a lot of that going around e.g. Kore wa Zombie desu ka.

    Wonder what they will think when they finally come home and find out that their son is dead (a zombie) and living with three girls. And that he’s become a masou shoujo.

    Darn it, all this time, and I never realized. The way to get a harem was to kick my parents out of the house.
