the IS (Infitinite Stratos) was a high-tech combat system. due to its overwhelming power, it was designed to balance the strength between men and women, where it can only be operated by women. however, Ichika was discovered to have the capability to operate an IS, he was sent to the IS Academy, an international academy where IS pilots from all over the world were trained. being the first male student in the academy, his school life of being surrounded by girls began.
despite the beautiful characters and mechas, the plot unfortunately only touched everything on its surface. the characters had stood out characteristics that made them easily lovable. however the limited amount of battles and episodes gave them very little space to expand or engaging us viewers. for a Harem anime, Infinite Stratos (2011) was successful in providing some enjoyable eye-candies, anything else more defined would be unfortunately, unavailable.
