4.0 out of 5 stars When harem anime meets SciFi mecha...
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,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Story is Good, but..
I can see where they were going with the story in this series. But, to me the series is unfinished, if anyone knows if that is the case please let me know. The graphics were good, the sound track was decent, as well as the character interactions. You start to see some really good character growth, but just as it was getting to where I felt the series was going to start...

4.0 out of 5 stars When harem anime meets SciFi mecha..., February 28, 2012
This review is from: Infinite Stratos Complete Collection (DVD)
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!

The SciFi aspects of this series and the mecha designs alone are what brings IS out of the generic toilet. It is a bit generous to give it 4 stars but I can't quite give it 3 stars. So 3.5 rating on this would be best. At the very least, give it a rental if you have a renting service. It is worth at least that much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent a must own!, January 5, 2014

This review is from: Infinite Stratos Complete Collection (DVD)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Infinite Stratos is worth the time, June 26, 2014

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO FUNNY, June 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Infinite Stratos Complete Collection (DVD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars IS is always good, April 7, 2013

This review is from: Infinite Stratos Complete Collection (DVD)
This anime balances the harem world with sci fi very well. Although my only problem with the story line was that there was too little action. I also like how every girl in the anime essentially falls for the main character, and when I recieved the anime it was in perfect condition.
