i really hope not. i would rather ikki be the normal underdog character who just happens to have a lot of talent for this. simply because it goes with the underlying theme of 'anyone can fly' not just the 'special' people.
I certainly dont think hes a braincharger, but he somehow Braincharger related.
It would be nice if he was someone like Yoshi, though his uber achievments would be really hard to accept if he was just a vanilla rider. Though id like it if there was some sense of underdog-like aspect to his origins as well.
Sort of like a failed prototype/experiment but compensated by Ikki himself...or somethin...
No. Ikki =/= Brain Charger, it's too obvious. Unless they want to go all Naruto - Akatski cloaks on us, they won't. And NOBODY I've spoken to likes the Akatski cloaks idea...
I think think ikki is going to be related to Grav Childs and Brain Chargers somehow but he is going to be one that is just wrong.
i dont think that ikki is going to be a brain charger or a gravity child, but i have to think that he will be something unique given his ties to uncle minami.
on the other hand being a natural human has potential, yoshitsune and benkei have showed us they can be just as good if not better than the 'special people'.
I doubt Ikki will be a brain charger.
The brain charger is already in Koga (Agito/Akito/Lind), and another would be silly.
I think Uncle Minami may have experimented on himself and it was passed on to Ikki.
But it would fit better with the story if Ikki was a natural human, and just incredibly talented.
i think he will be a gravity child
I think he'll be both. Brain Chargers are software, gravity children are the hardware. I think Ikki will have both the software and hardware.
Perhaps his lineage is where the traits for both gravity children and brain chargers come from. of course, these traits have been developed by scientific research into these two groups, but ikki has the basic and rough form of these
Or maybe he's just a quick learner due to his stubborn nature...
Brain Child LOL! For some reason thinking of Ikki and Brain Child in the same sentence made me laugh so hard. However I think the plot is Open for Ikki atm. I mean he is related to Uncle Minami so I can't really see it as a coincidence that he is as insanely talented as he is. However a simple 'brain charger' doesn't seem to fit the bill.
i really want ikki to be normal and just have the dedication to work hard (behind the scenes; as evident in chapter 87). having grown up with rika and mikan, he certainly won't be stopped so easily if he messes up and hurts himself. while its pretty certain that ikki is somehow connected to uncle minami, i really would prefer that he was nothing more than his real and normal son that he simply didn't have the time and effort to look after.
being a brain charger requires having been in a lab for some time to undergo the process... and rika got ikki when he was a baby. on top of the fact that she's most fond of him compared to mikan, ringo and ume, i don't think she would have allowed for ikki to be taken away for anything. i also don't think doing the brain charger process on an infant would be safe or ethical.
