Product Description

Ten years ago, the development of the revolutionary Infinite Stratos powered exoskeleton changed the world's balance of power overnight. Unfortunately, while the distribution of IS systems to every nation on Earth has ushered in a new era of peace, the fact that only women have thus far been able to pilot the Stratos systems has sent the relationship between the XX and XY-chromosomed halves of the human race into a spiraling tailspin! So when fifteen-year-old Ichika Orimura is suddenly discovered to be the first male with the ability to control an IS, whatever plans he might have had for his own future are tossed out the window even as he's thrown to the wolves and enrolled at the otherwise entirely female Infinite Stratos Academy by order of the Japanese government! It's One Boy Vs. All the Girls as Ichika get taken for a ride on some serious heavy metal in Infinite Stratos - The Complete Collection!

Amazon.com

Based on the light novels of Izuru Yumizuru, the comedy-adventure Infinite Stratos (2011) blends two popular anime genres: the mecha adventure and the harem comedy. Fifteen-year-old Ichika Orimura is the only boy who can activate one of the super-sophisticated mecha suits known as Infinite Stratos--and the only male student at the academy that trains pilots. (Although the Stratos suits represent a breakthrough in weaponry, international treaties dictate they only be used for Olympics-style matches.) Not surprisingly, Ichika attracts the attention of the top pilot cadets who set out to defeat him, then fall for him: Celia Alcott from England; Rinin Fan (China); Charlotte Dunois (France); Laura Bodewig (Germany); and his elementary school friend, kendo champion Houki Shinonono. In the best anime tradition, Ichika remains blithely clueless about being the object of everyone's affection, despite declarations of love and fan service jiggle scenes. Director Yasuhito Kikuchi choreographs the aerial duels with agreeable panache, and the designs of the Stratos suits are striking. Instead of forming enclosed units like the Gundam models, the segments of the Infinite Stratos fit like old-fashioned armor, leaving the head and parts of the limbs bare. Infinite Stratos may not be a particularly original or weighty series, but it is an entertaining one. The two-part OVA continues the characters' adventures outside the academy and includes the inevitable visit to a summer festival with yukata, games, cotton candy, and fireworks. The Blu-ray set comes with a soundtrack CD of related pop songs. (Rated TV 14 V: violence, violence against women, nudity, risqué humor, ethnic stereotypes, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

The animation was awesome and so was the english dub.
Auxifer007
Although my only problem with the story line was that there was too little action.
Steven
The story line is good and the story flows not like others out there.

You get Infinite Stratos...

The concept behind the series is not bad. It borrows a bit from an older series called Sky Girls. There are differences indeed. Sky Girls does not have mechas behaving more like power suits that fit into a compact form they wear at all times. They also are more like personal jets than suits like this. When you look at them both, Infinite Stratos has an edge on design. For that reason alone, IS is worth a rental.

As a harem anime, IS fits in on par. Characters behave in traditional patterns and there are the common characters rehashed. You can somewhat predict how the story will go from that. If you are a fan of these sorts of shows, you will find some decent scenes here and there. It isn't a bad show and it is nice that there really isn't one completely clear winner girl throughout it. You know which girl is going to get more screen time but each of the girls make an impact on the guy, some more than others. The potential for a sequel is quite strong.

Had this series been released years ago, it might have been cleared for a full 24 episode season. That is perhaps one of it's biggest weaknesses. It is just a single season. Some of the character development with the other girls gets cut and the series tends to rely more on, the clueless guy with girls fighting over him, concept. That alone causes it to drop a star.

Harem animes have tended to slip more into this format in the past years. Something which is a bit of a shame. Love Hina is the textbook example of a good harem anime and it still is. Too often writers use the girls fighting over the numbskull to insert fanservice. Generic story + generic characters...just insert dumb guy...add girl fighting...blend!

When cybernetic exoskeletons are invented the nations of the world quickly recognize their destructive potential and immediately sign a treaty banning their use in combat. The treaty also ensures that every nation will be given the technology to prevent any one nation from becoming to dominate. As a result the nations of the world find an alternative use for these mechs competitive tournaments.

In addition these mechs shift the balance of society to women due to them being the only gender capable of controlling the mechs. So when years later a teenage boy is found capable of controlling the mechs there is only one thing to do… force him to attend an all girls academy that trains mech pilots, but before he can adjust to his new surroundings his life gets even more complicated thanks to some old and new friends.

The animation, characters, story and English dub are awesome making this series one of my favorite Sci Fi / Mecha animes!

Being a harem there is some minor fan service, brief nudity and suggestive themes so the series may not be suitable for younger children. Fan service involves a lot of well endowed women wearing revealing clothing that continuously expose their panties.

After you realize the first few minutes are the end and everything else is the lead up to those events this is a very good series. The interactions between the hero and his instructor who is his sister and the other members of his class are hilarious. The action is very good and the animation is pretty smooth. The story is also pretty interesting. This is worth the cost and watching it is not time wasted.

This is packed with humor. Like a lot of harem anime this is about one guy who is alone surrounded by women. The main character has a big mouth and tends to leap into trouble without looking but he is also lovable and very kind. Too kind in some cases. Some of the girls has the biggest egos, and the mix made for a funny story.
