Infinite Stratos Series
Infinite Stratos Scans
Infinite Stratos (IS) is fairly stereotypical in many aspects. It also doesn't dive that deep into a plot during
its twelve episode run. However, what it does do it does rather well. From the animation, to the well casted VAs, to
the premises, IS is definitely above average in every aspect. While certainly not an legendary anime, it's certainly
enough for me to consider it a guilty pleasure and recommend it for those that don't mind harem series. Bear in mind
that IS flirts more with being mediocre than above average, but it is above average for a harem series.
This is a series that I plan on picking up as soon as it's released in the US. It's definitely one of my top ten guilty pleasures, even if it's stereotypical in so many manners.
well, when i first saw the anime i thought the action events will be more than romance aspect (i hoped we only stayed at the romance, if you what i mean?!!), but sadly it was not, although the graphics are awesome, the character disgust me in many ways, i didn't like or enjoy this anime at all, such a waste of "infinite stratos" idea.
The plot was a bit predictable because of the whole harem situation. Though the cold opening and the fight at the end were especially awesome! Watching the second season. The second season tried to get somewhere and it felt really unsatisfying. If they focused more on integrating Phantom Task into this season it would've turned out a lot better in my opinion. Take Ichika out of a situation and it would amaze you how much more capable and bad ass the girls acted. But throw him back in and they would just revert back to damsels in distress waiting for him to become the hero.
Kinda weird/sad how only Houki was relieved that Ichika had not died. Though, at least to me, Houki has lost her #1 spot in the harem to Tatenashi. Because while Houki's only flaw was that she was too predictable when she dealt with Ichika when she became embarrassed/angry about something whenever he happened to be nearby, almost every girl had that flaw. And that got old, fast. But throughout the two seasons things were focused a good bit more on Houki that the other girls. But Tatenashi never had those type of tendencies so while I like Houki and find Laura funny and adorable at times, with this new season Tatenashi won me over.
It gets downgraded because they focused a bit too much on transforming its strong female characters into shrill, catty yanderes who apparently thought they could get Ichika’s love through violence. Which doesn't work, by the way. Instead of focusing on what should have been the main points: Phantom Task and Tabane.
Well I thought that it'll be a good anime with the introduction but it turned out to be a typical harem genre, which was a quite disappointing. But I really like Laura from there she's cool and her eyes is just freaking awesome, and the way she used her suit is pretty cool too.
actually first i saw the anime and i liked the main idea about a machines only suits girl and then only one
boy suits him i thought the anime is all about fighting and action, but i was disoppointed infact it's not it's
just a harem series and a romance anime, i didn't like it, i will rate this 5 because of the high quitly colored
characters and background that's all.
The story revolves around an elite school which trains IS (a kind of power suit only usable by woman) pilots. Where the main character is the only male character who can pilot it. The 3D render and animation quality is great, but too bad the story is more focused on the romance aspect rather than the actions.
A great combination between Bishoujo and Mecha-suit XD Although it's lil 'bit ecchi & harem, but I still like it. I like the character design of females character, especially Shinonono Houki and Laura Bodewig. Both of them are tsundere type (nyan! X3). The design of mecha-suit is cool, but I can't judge the story yet, since I haven't seen it completely :P Overall, it's recommended if we like mecha-battle type anime :)
i have no idea why people rate this sucks..this is how a harem anime should be..is not like a bunch of crazy action anime like bleach, fairy tail or naruto so personally i giv a score of 8 for personal enjoyment..dun flame me >.< watch it if u like harem and mecha ^_^
robots are for sports rather than war a very noble idea. the fighting scenes are very gundam like with high quality arts and movements. characters are rather interesting. leading male voice artist is pretty new but sounds just right for the character. job well done. fan services pretty good and didn't go over. seiyuu Hanazawa Kana solid performance. love her voice. gave so much life to the character. love to see if there's season 2.
Can't exactly say that this series is based anything that could be considered original. Actually perhaps the fact that mecha, harem and comedy are melded to form this series could be called original - but then again probably not.
Harem and Mecha combination, it got potential to be good but falls short in my expectations. Graphics are good, characters interesting but plot is bad, and some dialogues (or worse monologoues) are really bad. Still it is enjoyable anime so anyone interested just checkit out how this machines go berserk and a guy in superharem
during the first few episodes of Infinite Stratos, i have to admit that i really liked it because of the harem and comedy. it's one of the few animes i watched this Winter Season and the ending was pretty disappointing. after watching it, i was like: "that's it?" i feel like the conclusion of the anime or the last arc of the anime is fairly non sense. anyway, this is purely personal opinion, i don't know what others think but for me, that's it for IS, the comedy wasn't consistent until the end, the harem is good but the romance is a failure and the action/battle part is not really good at all :P
