Synopsis

The year is AD 2225. Kouji Aiba and Aoi Housen are serving as astronauts in-training in Liebe Delta which is located on the edge of the Geduld Sea. When saboteurs with unknown intents suddenly strike during a routine dive procedure, the space station plummets into the Geduld, a plasma field that links all the planets like a nervous system and crushes any ship that strays too far into it. With all the adults onboard killed, the young astronauts will have to survive this long journey home in midst of the growing tension amongst each other. Meanwhile the organizers of the sabotage look on and prepare to attack once more.

Infinite Ryvius is essentially "Lord of the Flies" on a spaceship, although with students old enough to be in high school (surprise, surprise). Once the students are stranded without their teachers, in various hostile situations, the anime becomes a microcosm for the problem of governance. We have the authoritarians, we have the democrats, and everyone in-between. Most striking for me, about this series, was the slow descent from happy-go-lucky "let's try our best at being space heroes" to chaos, mob-rule, and abuse of power. Having gone to teachers college, I'd hazard that many students would do well to watch this anime, read more

The artistic presentation is definitely not the selling point of Infinite Ryvius. I'll state one of my major complaints with the show right off the bat: It is permeated by numerous elements that feel tenuously connected to the setting and the plot, and while the character designs aren't the worst offenders, they're a good visual representation of the problem. I can get behind the generic-but-acceptable “everyday kid” look of some cast members, and the spiffy flight uniforms worn by the group of elite pilots look halfway believable, but that's about as far as these designs could take me. It's hard to feel any sort of read more

I've seen a lot of overrated and over-hyped animes here, but this has to be one of the few who's underrated, and one that should really be in the Top10 of Top100.

Strange but this anime seems to be the only one that all the people who rated it liked and respect it, even the ones that gave it an average 7 think this is a really good anime, but just gets dragged down by animation and the really depressive story, in their opinion, i happen to like the animation and the story.

Animation:
This anime has one visible flaw but the good points more than make up read more

Story:
The story of Infinite Ryvius is developed well. The plot is fairly basic, a bunch of kids attending a space academy are involved in an accident and get stranded on a space vessel with no adults. However, they do a good job though at developing the story by showing all the ordeals and troubles that the kids go up against and more importantly how they affect each character's state of mind individually. A lot of drama and emotions are involved, there's a good fill of action, and even a nice touch of romance is brought into the mix. So overall, it's a pretty entertaining story read more

Recommendations

Anime: Starship Operators
Another sci-fi story set in a futuristic society. Students aboard a ship end up having to assume control of it, and although there are some different spins on it, there are staggering amounts of similarities. I think if you enjoy one you'll enjoy the other. Because it is a longer series than Starship Operators they take the time to deal with the nitty gritty like food and water problems and other aspects of life that would be difficult to organize on your own with a bunch of amateurs.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam Seed
Same artist, and a lot of the same characters, but in their own different universes. The animation also feels the same, so if you enjoyed one, i'm sure you'll enjoy the other.

Anime: Bokurano
I've been passing this recommendation around in my head for a while and I figured why not put it out there. The similarities might not hit you right off the back, they are structured completely differently, Bokurano is based around small arc for each of the pilots, while Infinite Ryvius focuses on the whole plot, but once you get underneath, they both are very similar.

Both shows present a large cast of unique children placed in a perilous situation against their will or better judgment. But mainly they share the same themes, responsibility, loss of innocence, power, and politics. You get many different ideas  read more

Anime: 11-nin Iru!
A bunch teenagers being thrown onto a mysterious space ship, and they found out their way surviving. Trust, betrayal, friendship, angst shown under various situations.

They were 11 deals only with internal conflicts, being a 90 min movie a lot development has to be cut short. Also rewatchability is a bit low when you get spoiled at the end resolution.

Infinite Ryvius being a 26 episode TV series, has a lot of time to develop its plot, and characters, despite the casts are huge. Teens in this series have to deal with outsider attacking and internal conflicts, so the story seems fuller than  read more

Anime: Kakumeiki Valvrave
Both are Sunrise anime about teenagers floating in space while defending off attacks from outside forces with their mecha. Both deal heavily with the personal relationships of the teenagers involved while they "struggle" to survive in the hostile environment. 
reportRecommended by lordzeru
Anime: Planetes
Politically charged, sci-fi drama with some action. While Infinite Ryvius focuses on the internal power politics of the spaceship at hand, Planetes addresses the ethical issues behind the ideology of science and capitalism. If you were fascinated by the issues of power and capitalist hegemony here, you will surely enjoy the political terrain underneath Infinite Ryvius.
