Ichika's busy school life surrounded by girls has begun.

Infinite Stratos is a show about some generic Japanese kid (the intended audience) who gets put in an all girl's school because he's the only male in the world who can use a Gundam. This is a major plot point that is heavily referenced and alluded to but never actually explained beyond being referenced because this show doesn't need to have a coherent storyline or characters.

The only reason anyone watches this show is for the qt girls, Germany and France are qtest btw, whose personalities are just based off various pages from TV Tropes. None of them are really important to the plot at read more

It's a mobile suit... IT'S A GUNDUMB!

That is the best way I can sum up this show in one word. GUNDUMB. This anime is one that revolves around a main character named Ichika who can pilot a mobile suit called an IS, an Infinite Stratos. The twist is... wait for it... ONLY WOMEN CAN PILOT THEM! But for some reason so can this lone high school age boy. Why? Anime logic. So... naturally... this boy begins attending an all girls academy for IS training. I know what you are thinking "How can a boy go to an all girls school?" Well... anime logic. Thats how. read more

Recommendations

In both series, the female characters are the dominant characters as they take the skies and brings about the action with their abilities. The main male protagonist gets acquainted with these characters as some of them develop feelings for him.

There is fan service in both series along with some drama, action, and comedy. Romance is obvious between the main male and female character in both series.

They also take place at a school life setting.
Both shows are harems where the lead male has a power that only females are supposed to have. In the case of IS, it is the ability to pilot a specialized mecha, and in the case of Blade Dance, it is the ability to contract spirits. In both cases, the lead male is forcefully enrolled into an all-girls academy.
