Welcome to the Infinite Stratos discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Wiki Section

Main Pages: Light Novel | Manga | Anime | Franchise | Characters

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create manga and franchise page.
  • Help add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: ?

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: ?

Concepts

Common: Simulcast, Humans, Flashback, Fan Service, Harem

Specific: ?

I'm sure I've said this before. But, I might as well get the thread going by re-saying it.

I thought the first 6/7 episodes were great. I really thought the eye-patch girl was going to be a different contrast to the other characters. Then she joined the rest of them like a little girl-club. It annoyed me.

I tried the anime back when recommended to me on Twitter. At first, I watched it dub instead of sub for some odd reason. I like Cecilia's voice in dub because it had attitude despite having a bad voice. I stopped watching it for a while. It hasn't really pulled my attention to resume watching it. I can't remember the main character. He didn't stand out. I think I was good with him because I hate wimpy/perverted guys in harem series except Akatsuki from Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero.

I should pick up it up.

Tatenashi is quickly growing on me. I like a troublemaker in a harem.

Haven't seen the other blue haired girl yet. What are we thinking? Shy twin sister?

Made profile portraits for Houki and Tatenashi:

Usually I don't like close combat mecha fight because it's sometimes confusing who is attacking who, but with a concept of mecha with open cockpit it's really enjoyable to see those fights. Although, I think they did that so they can add a little Fan Service Fight.

@Daniel_Newton: Those images look great. Houki is still my favorite though.

@bigz007: I think this is the first time I'm struggling to pick a favourite in a harem anime, that's a good thing though. I was all about Charlotte in season 1 but the competition really heated up this season. I really like Charlotte and Tatenashi, and Laura is always right behind them. Heck, even Cecilia almost won me over in this episode.

Ichika is still super annoying though. I know this is anime but nobody can be that oblivious, ugh.

You must be thrilled that Tatenashi have a twin sister. She is kinda strange though. She said she is waiting for a hero (or prince) and then the only boy in 10 miles radius asks her to practice together, and she turns him down. Woman logic.

Moving this conversation to the right place :P

Nah, I like Tatenashi's attitude. Her twin sister might have the looks but so far I have no reason to like her character. I think the hero/prince thing was intentional to show how much she hates Ichika, not that it was his fault his IS was built before hers.

@Daniel_Newton: I have a feeling she will turn out to be like Laura. Harsh at first, but after some time she will be just like other girls. It's a harem series after all.

@bigz007: Yeah I expect so. Maybe the twins will agree to "share" Ichika and team up on him...

@Daniel_Newton: So many possibilities for him, and instead of trying out each of them, he chooses none.

@Daniel_Newton:

Shes a sister.. a younger sister.The older sister reminds me of Medaka Kurokami in looks but Nekomi Nabeshima in personality from Medaka Box .

@bigz007: Ichika Orimura seems more dense in the second series than the 1st.He was more aware of his suroundings in some of the OVA's between the seasons to i think.

I don't think any man could deal with all those girls and do nothing about it for as long as him.

@Marshal Victory: He is probably the only male who prefers friend zone, and its not like he have some mayor plans so he can't afford to spend time with those girls.

@bigz007: I think its been a buildng trend in harem anime . Kojō Akatsuki from Strike the Blood is as bad if not a bit worse.Tho the main male lead from Tokyo Ravens is worse.

Ichika Orimura does seem to notice them at least an think of them difrently from time to time.Or else he wouldnt be blushing so much.I took from the OVA he was going tword Houki Shinonono to .

If I'm not mistaken, that's Daniel's favorite gal right on the cover from Infinite Stratos.

Yeah she's definitely grown on me, but she isn't very high up on the harem totem pole of this show for me. I'd probably put them in this order: Charlotte > Tatenashi > Laura > Houki > Kanzashi > Ling > Kanzashi > Cecilia

Yep. Tatenashi is a very close second though!
