Infinite Stratos 01

Infinite Stratos

Cecillia Status:

Infinite Stratos

“Now we must Kung-Fu Mecha-fight because I am really really really British, and if there’s one thing the British can’t abide, it’s penises.”

Thanks, Aroduc, that said it all too well for me.


Infinite Stratos kinda ended up a lot more entertaining that I expected it to be, thanks to Ichika’s ball-ness in dealing with his situation as the single boy in a school full of girl pilots of nigh-invincible-to-conventional-weaponry mobile armored suits.

I especially liked his brand of snarkiness, such as “Hey, you can fit in to a bra now!” and the aforementioned screencaps. Sure is great burn there, Brits.

But still….

Kuro|Work> well, too bad the show isn’t about Ichika telling the bitches their places
Kuro|Work> instead it’s going to be some story about how they will overcome their differences and work together, in the process Ichika amassing a harem of deadly proportions
NovaJinx> ^
Kuro|Work> (Note: everyone of his crushes are supposedly superior pilots of a metal suit that can decimate armies in three days.)

Of course I am basing that on random spoilers on /m/ but I won’t be surprised if I turn out right.

What will be making or breaking this show for me is probably how Ichika’s going to deal with the girls from now on, so instead of viewing this as some mecha anime, I am just going to watch this like it’s a generic harem school comedy. Not like it’s anything otherwise anyways.

    “Ichika’s ball-ness in dealing with his situation”
    – just for 10 seconds
    the rest of the time is Ichika just like Kirino’s Kyosuke
    A very disappointing 1st ep.
    “…a generic harem school comedy. Not like it’s anything otherwise anyways.”

    If only they were to get the verb’s form right on that first screen shot…

    As for the show itself, I agree with those who note it having something in common with Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. InSM was a rather entertaining show, so as long as they can keep it up, this might be a fun ride…

    These subs are better than the ones I can find right now. Which group’s are you watching? Just the first few letters of the name will do.

    Just hope that Ichika is not being so dense with all the girls stalking on him!

    Moral of the episode was even if you are a champion or an incredible student, you will never be a good enough pilot because you lack a penis and/or you are British.

    Dang, I was freaking annoyed by Cecillia then some monkey decided to spoil me so all that anger just went away…. but… I’m still looking forward to that fight next week!

    @ berz
    Really? I did not think it was that bad. I thought it still looked pretty good.

    But yeah, so far Ichika is pretty darn awesome and the whole thing in general is fun to watch. To me at least it’s not disappointing at all.

    Feels like Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou with mecha suits.

    I was thinking the same thing actually… I think it’s the technological looking city/classrooms

    I love me some Yukana,
    With her powering that ojousama-elitist… I think I just came.

    Other than that… my generic-cliche-checklist is almost full of checks…

    Now that you mention it… I guess there are some similarities.

    @Kabitzin: Haha, yeah.
