Powered exoskeleton's abbreviated as IS. A IS was originally designed for outer space exploration but became a new mainstream weapon for the world.
In the near future, a Japanese scientist named Tabane Shinonono engineered the powered exoskeleton called the Infinite Stratos (IS). The IS was originally designed to be operated in outer space but was halted and was used for warfare. 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. With the introduction of this mighty weapon it has a major effect on society as only women are able to pilot a IS. Due to this the balance of power between men and women is broken causing women to dominate society over men.
After ten years since the first IS was introduced the world has entered a new age of peace. However the peace is shattered when a young Japanese man named Orimura Ichika is discovered being the only male on the planet able to operate a IS. Realizing his potential Ichika is sent to the IS Academy by the Japanese government to learn how to fully operate a IS and protect him from the other countries who wish to use him.
