My little bit on “Infinite Stratos”. Infinite Stratos first started off as a light novel then into a manga, and know an anime. Infinite Stratos is engraved in stone to be a 12 episode anime (only 4 eps have been released)
Lets have a look at the synopsys first:
In the near future, a Japanese scientist engineers a powered exoskeleton called “Infinite Stratos” (IS). Possessing technology and combat capabilities far more advanced than any other weapon system, the IS threatens to destabilize the world. Faced with such an overpowering weapon, the nations of the world enact the “Alaska Treaty”, which states that IS will never be used for military combat and that existing IS technology must be equally distributed to all nations, to prevent any one nation for dominating the others. The introduction of the IS does however have a major effect on society. As IS can only be operated by women, the power balance between men and women is broken, with women coming to dominate society over men.
Ten years after the first IS were introduced, the world has entered a new age of peace. The peace is shattered, however, by an unexpected discovery. A 15 year old Japanese boy, named Ichika Orimura, is discovered to be capable of operating an IS. Realizing the potential, Ichika is forced by the Japanese government to attend the prestigious Infinite Stratos Academy, an international academy where IS pilots from all over the world are trained. Thus his busy school life surrounded by girls begins.
This anime has a very generic harem story line (but hay I love generic Chocó bars :)), based of the eps I have seen. The story has been presented in very classic harem genera kind of way (is it bad to be surrounded by hundreds of girls…hm hm…). The story may be 50/50 in the best of times; it makes up for this in the great animation quality in the battles scenes and for the cute anime character designs. And this in turn makes it a decent anime series to goggle your eyes at for 30 odd mins on.
Of all the characters show at this early stage of this anime that I’m Likening quit a bit is Huang Lingyin. But my mind is still open at the moment, to see who my fav is. Houki Shinonono is lining up to quit a nice character
I have decided that I will be getting volume one of this Manga and i will review it as well (soon….), in the review I will compare how similar the Manga is to the anime and how different it is. (If thats the case)
(Thats what i looked like when i first saw a bra [i thought it was a hat, LOL]… well kind like that but a bit more OMG faced)
So the conclusion is that if you are into harem series (stuff like that) you are in luck (BINGO!) But if don’t, why don’t you just give it a try? (You may like it? Or maybe it will change the way you think of humanoid robotics?….)
What do you thnk of the anime so far? comment below.
