The complete first series of the Japanese anime set in a future where powered armour suits known as Infinite Stratos (IS) have been invented. The IS are distributed evenly throughout the world and a peace treaty is put in place to ensure no country will use the powerful technology in war. Meanwhile, since only females are able to operate the suits, a social change has taken place with women becoming the more dominant gender. However, teenager Ichika Orimura (voice of Josh Grelle) becomes the first boy with the ability to control the IS and he is sent by the government to train at the Infinite Stratos Academy where his fellow students are all girls. The episodes are: 'All My Classmate Are Female', 'Class Representative Selection Match!', 'The Transfer Student Is the Second Childhood Friend', 'The Class League Match', 'Boy Meets Boy', 'My Roommate Is a Young, Blonde Nobleman', 'Blue Days - Red Switch', 'Find Out My Mind', 'Ocean's Eleven!', 'Thin Red Line', 'Get Ready' and 'Your Name Is'. The collection also features the OVA episode 'A Sextet Yearning for Love'.

Infinite Stratos is about a 15/16 year old boy called Ichika Orimura who transfers into the IS Academy after one day activating an IS, something males apparently can't do. The Infinite Stratos machines are basically powered exoskeletons, which are armed with various kinds of weaponry and shields. They use these for fighting and practising at the academy.

Ichika Orimura is a somewhat shy and clueless character, he has quite a few female characters showing a strong interest in him, some even showing a sexual interest in him, but like with most harem anime shows, the MC basically freaks out and pushes them away, and this also happens here too.

The anime covers Ichikas day to day life and introduces each of the female cast members, naturally they all love Ichika, but sure enough his childhood friend Houki appears to derail anyones plans to hit on him. Besides the school stuff, there's not much else besides a tournament, and the final mission in the series. It's basically a fun, almost light on plot story that doesn't take a lot of thinking to understand.

I'm basically giving this series 3 stars because I found the dub cringe worth, I just don't like the fake, forced accents. Especially Cecilias, which is a stereo typically bad British accent, I've lived here all my life and have never heard another British person speak like that, it's almost laughable. Charlottes is okay, Houki is okay, it's a typical Monica Rial voice, which rarely changes. Rinin Fan is meant to be Chinese but her voice is typical of Hilary Haag who uses the same voice for most of her roles. It's almost as if they had this idea to give the characters laughably bad accents and then forgot about the rest. Tiffany Grant is the only redeeming one as Laura Bodewig.

I like the show, I do.

Infinite Stratos is one of those animes that I decided to buy on amazon, because the product description made the story sound interesting. The idea of females being the dominant gender in the near future, because they are the only ones capable of controlling IS combat machines was an intriguing concept, and I was interested to see what kind of society would be portrayed in a world like that.
I only gave this series 3/5 stars, because whilst it was enjoyable overall, I felt it didn't meet my expectations as much as I thought it would. For instance, the fact that women are more powerful than men in the near future is expressed, but it's not portrayed as often you'd think. In fact, other than the fact that most of the characters are female, there's nothing to suggest too heavily that there's been a major change in society. With the exception of the IS Units, it feels no different to modern-day.
Another thing to mention is the characters. I really enjoy how the main characters are portrayed, and how each of the girls represents a different nation; Japan, China, France, German and Great Britain. However, the series doesn't spend a lot of time getting to know their backstories and most of the time it's just about the girls trying to win over the affections of Ichika (the only male student in their IS academy). Being only 13 episodes long (including one OVA) I knew there wouldn't be a whole lot of time for character development. But things in the series are so fast-paced, it gets to the point where somebody can be a ruthless and aggressive enemy in one episode, and then a friendly and blushing comrade in the next. It almost makes you think, "wow, that was a sudden change of heart?!

The powered exoskeletons known as the Infinite Stratos (or I.S.) are powerful tools capable of increasable feats and have changed the world since their development by the eccentric genius Tabane Shinonono but only women are able to use them. Ichika Orimura, the younger brother of a former I.S. Champion, was therefor as surprised as anyone when he found himself able to operate an I.S. and now he finds himself as the only boy at the Infinite Stratos Academy where the world's best train.

This two disc set includes all twelve episodes of the first season of 'Infinite Stratos', as well as an OVA. The series is relatively entertaining with the standard antics of a harem series coupled with some good action in the form of the I.S. battles. The characters are in the series are all nicely portrayed even if they are somewhat standard for this type of series just with an international element added to the mix (although Ichika himself is clueless even by the standards of harem anime main characters). Of the main female characters, the German Laura Bodewig is probably my favourite, as she is it is very entertaining to watch her character develop as the series progresses, although Ichika's sister Chifuyu is probably my favourite character in the series as a whole with Houki's eccentric sister Tabane following close behind.

The thing I like most about the series is the setting and the I.S. units themselves as they are very interesting and I would have liked to see a lot more of both. The battles in the series are very nice with the finale being very spectacular and enjoyable to watch. The comedy in the show is generally quite standard harem series stuff but it is pulled of relatively well, especially during the OVA.
