IS: Infinite Stratos..
If my Greek isn't so rusty, I would confidently say that "Stratos" means "Skies"
But after watching this anime for the first time, I could conclude that Stratos actually means "Harem"
Why? Because when you're the only guy in a girl school, THERE'S INFINITE HAREMS POSSIBLES! Thus they should rename this anime to Infinite Harems!

Now to tell you the truth, I was a bit reluctant to watch this. Oh sure, harem turns me on, like any normal guy, but mecha genre really turns me off.

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.
