Sup guys! My second review on the new anime that has either been made in 2010-2011 or continuing. 
 



summary:


Japan made an armed powered exoskeleton "Infinite Stratos" (IS). due to it advanced technology it became the mainstream of weapons. Since only women can operate IS, women dominate the society over men. Orimura Ichika is a 15 year old boy and accidentally touches an IS placed in the IS pilot training school. He is found to be the only man who can operate IS and forced to enter the training school. Ichika's busy school life surrounded by girls has begun. 
 

The awesome:


This anime has a crazy awesome mecha storyline with very good animation to go with it. The way they merge real life with the fiction is actually pretty impressive. They involve every nation in this anime along with their problems. each (main)country has a IS representative as you can imagine none of them really get along which makes for a interesting collision that grabs the viewers attention. This anime is like gundam mixed with eureka seven battle wise. I mean the fight scenes in this anime are crazy beautiful.
 
  
  
See what i mean? If you dislike this anime for any reason it most likely wasnt because of the animation. 
The ecchi in this anime was surprisingly very well evened out considering the summary of the show and i dont really have that many bad things to say about it.
 

The Craptastic:


 "He is found to be the only man who can operate IS and forced to enter the training school. Ichika's busy school life surrounded by girls has begun."
yes, for those of you that watch alot of anime you know what this means. another very predictable storyline from a writer that want to find any reason to get a under aged boy alone with 10 other under aged girls. To add on to the predictability of this anime (we should start calling them animated Japanese stereotypes) the girls are absolutely horny for this guy, but wait there is more! the main character is....drum roll please! *drum roll*....totally oblivious to those girls obvious advances! shocker! Even a 10 year old can at least tell when a guy and a girl like each other >.>. This anime had great characters with even better personalities however when all the supporting characters started showing interest in the main character thats when they totally dropped their personalities and turned into slobbering, obsessive, fan girls. It was a massive disappointment because one of the supporting characters was my favorite. What really made my jaw drop was the girls opinion on the relationship between Ichika and his sister, Chifuyu, whom is in charge of their class. There is a scene i the anime where the two sibling were talking alone in a room and they actually speculated that they were having sex. Japan and their incest, man....
   

Art and Animation:

5 out of 5
to be honest i wouldnt expect less from a new anime about mecha. They should have art and animation on eureka sevens level. 
 

Characters:

 2 out of 5
As i have already stated above,the main character was predictable and the supporting characters were great and very likeable untill they started showing interest in the main character, then they just looked like any other girl from any other common ecchi.
 

Overall Plot


3 out of 5
with their school life the plot was very predictable, you can literally guess half of their actions and get it right. 
the mecha aspect of the anime is very enjoyable and you will love every bit of action that comes your way.
 
 
since the anime is continuing i cant really say alot nevertheless i hope you guys enjoyed the review.
Im really intersted in your opinions about my review and/or the anime. also if you guys have any anime that you guys want me to watch and review please name them i already got a couple on the list so please post

@FoolyCooly: Considering your username and image you used at the conclusion of your post, I really wish anime series like IS would follow the precedent of originality and mind-blowing-ness that was FLCL
 
I guess that's expecting too much, though. As critical as I was of IS myself when it debuted this season and with how much I agree with your assessment I guess it'd be good for people who are looking for a harem-scifi-mecha sort of show with good animation rather than character development and depth of plot. Reflecting on the whole multinational representation thing, I am reminded of a very terrible Gundam series and thinking about it now I guess IS could've turned out a lot worse! 'xD
