The story is set in the not-so-distant future. Five "Black Points" suddenly appeared around the world as portals to parallel worlds. Immediately after, strange creatures began their invasion from these portals. These creatures are the inhabitants of five worlds—the same worlds in different timeframes. In order to ensure their own future timeframe survives, each of the five invasion forces battle to wipe the other future timeframes out. The key is one card-shaped device.
When you are faced with new characters every episode almost no background for them and their assistants ( Z/X ) that for some reason half of them are hot babes and the rest are relatives with pokemons ,after that you find out there is almost no story to talk about and a lot of lose ends , a single question rises from the ashes , what could make someone watch this ? Well for me was a lot of free time and a open mind . Yes , these wore my reasons for watching Z/X IGNITION .
Yes , yes , i forgot to add the pros of this anime .
Good animation , the fights were really well done , the action scenes were fluid , only a nice budget could provide that .
The OST was there , but I am the type that rarely pays any attention to this , so I will skip this and let other people decide in this regard .
In regard of the voice acting one could only bring words of praise , the seiyuus made a wonderful job , every one of them matched the character especially the MC , nice to hear Kansai-Ben from time to time .
Now for the last part and the reason as to why I gave this a 6 . The most important reason is the potential that this anime has , I tend and want to believe that this season is just the launching pad , they only presented the characters and just a part of the story and left us with a big ass cliffhanger .
In the end I can say that I enjoyed watching this and with all due respect I belive that Z/X IGNITION deserves more than just a 1 ( appalling ) or 6 ( fine ) . If a second season will be aired , then this show will get a bigger score on MAL , if not , then that’s what it was worth .
One last thing , some of you are wondering if there will be another season , well there is just a single answer to that , Infinite Stratos 2 , and with this I will end my review .

I want to start the review saying that I enjoyed this anime a lot. Although is a game based anime, and I've had some bad experiences with anime like that, this one was pretty good.
Story 8/10: The story parts form a point where the characters have already developed certain relationships between them and their Z/X so I thought it was gonna get confused, since most game based anime are like that and don't explain more of the back story of the characters. But this was different since after 1 episode you can see the back story of all the characters and understand the whole story.
Art 7/10: Although I've seen better graphics in lots of anime I don't think this was bad at all. I like the battle animation and the characters too.
Sound 7/10: I don't really pay a lot of attention to sound unless it's pretty bad. This was not the case. It was good and I even enjoyed the OP and ED.
Character 9/10: I like every character. I didn't found any of them annoying. And the fact that they put some hot girls is a plus. You can even see some fan service, although still censored.
Enjoyment 9/10: Like I said before I really enjoyed watching this anime. I never got bored and I found every single episode great.
I hope to see a second season.
Oh and if anyone think I over rated the anime, well then it's you own opinion. Some might not liked it just like I didn't with other anime. But i don't care.
I recommend you to watch it.read more
The anime was good for me except for one major problem mad it bad.This problem was rushing through events.Form my point of view if the anime was 24 episodes instead of 12 , it would be a lot batter because it's so obvious the rushing through anime (short fights scenes,no back ground for the main characters,they left at the end of anime so many things unsettled etc..) and at the end of the anime there was >Fin< does it mean that there is no way we are continuing the anime ?
The essence of the story it self was great ..so great but the sequel of events was a big fail and so horrible ending up killing the story. The animation was good the fights was good animated. The character was not bad but they just keep coming out of no where with no back ground and if there is it would take a hole episode which is eating the little time the anime has .
I gave the anime 8 final score just because of the story was good and new and has so many conflicts or that what it suppose to be !read more
In a world which black points have appeared and made a big disaster. Innocent people are dying for nothing , only cards can save people from this catastrophe ..
This anime has a good story which is little bit exciting because you will be wondering of how the characters will save the world but, there were lots of unexplained things i think because the number of episodes weren't enough, besides most of the episodes were talking about the characters' pasts and this was great for characters' development .
The art was marvelous including the characters and backgrounds but, there were little mistakes at drawing form far distances.
About the sounds, the OST was good and very suitable , the voices was amazing, voice actors did a great job.
This anime is good and if you have a spare time you can watch it, both of events and the characters are great but put in your mind that its only 12 episodes and this range isn't enough these kinds of stories .
Nothing screams "anime" like a good old fashioned card battle. Two passionate characters build up their decks and fight it out for all the glory. Today, we'll take a look at the shows that truly represent anime card battles in their own unique way.
