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.
But after looking through the mecha suit design, "Hey! You can still see the girls! They're not covered under huge piles of metal!" So I decided to give it a shot.
Wow... Was I wrong about this being a whole mecha genre. They focused more on the harem part! What proof do I have you ask?? Other than the fact he is the only guy?? Well in the ending, they add every new girl he added to his "harem" running along with him. HOW DOES THIS NOT SHOW THAT THE ANIME IS GOING TOWARDS THE DIVINE HAREM ROUTE!
The artwork is up to date with your standard mecha genre anime so I see no disappointment there for those who loves mecha with a harem. No, not mecha sex you perverts! And don't you go googling "Inyoku Tokkyuu Zetsurinou" or "Dyogrammaton" neither!
Nothing to add about sound, it's well balanced.
Anyways, onward to the characters! The main aspect of every harem animes!
-Male lead who walks into girl while changing [CHECK]
-Dense Male Harem lead [CHECK]
(If all the guys were dense like the typical male harem leads, we wouldnt need birth control)
-Childhood friend who is likely to be friendzoned by the producers cause somehow anime directors hate Childhood friends [CHECK] x2
-High class lady with a high ego whom parodies western people [CHECK]
(Why do some japanese people think Westerners are all egoistic? Who knows *rolls eyes*)
-A hyper active and high pitched girl with an attitude [MAYBE EVENTUALLY]
-Chinese girl wannabe with a chinese restaurant (Macross frontier reference??) [CHECK]
-YANDERE!!!! [HOPE NOT O_o]
-Glasses Girl [CHECK]
(Well his teacher might go into his harem for all you know!)
(UPDATE: YES SHE DID!!)
-Bossy older sister who is good at everything [CHECK]
-Fangirls of the bossy older sister who are Yuri-able [CHECK]
-The three musketeers! Or the three girls who always appears as background characters! [CHECK]
Mahou Shoujo???? [WOULD BE RIDICULOUS IN A MECHA ANIME BUT WHO KNOWS???]
-Girl crossplaying as a guy with the ability to change very fast due to the fact she has flat chest.. [CHECK]
(Correction: My friend corrected me that in the future, technology is so advance, that breasts can be compressed)
-Women who clearly broke the "Stay in the kitchen" law [CHECK]
Im not being sexist here. I think it's a good thing women are advance and inventing machines........ to make us guys sammiches...
Despite all the criticism, this anime is enjoyable if you just wanna watch something haremic (Yes I invented that word!) but with a touch of action, mecha specificly.
Overall, for all you harem lover who enjoys imagining themselves in a school full of girls and you're the only guy then this is the anime for you!
Even if you do get a renob like me by watching mecha animes. (Oh please don't google renob up...)
For you mecha lovers out there, this might be a disappointment but fear not, every season, new mecha animes are coming in so there's still hope! So put down that gun.. Yes.. slowly, put it down.. Sit back.. and relax... read more
One of the problems with the anime industry is the tendency to overuse stereotypes and themes, and many of the studios in Japan continue to operate under the idea that the shows they create will generate a profit in some manner (regardless of the content), through DVD sales or merchandise. The sad fact is that many producers barely break even from one season to the next, which then prompts arguments of piracy, licensing, pricing, distribution costs, etc, all of which seems more than a little strange as while it may appear that the studios have some perfectly valid arguments, they've neglected to talk about one thing - the anime they make.
Every season viewers are subjected to a barrage of average or substandard fare that serves no other purpose than mindless juvenile media, yet these shows continue to be made because the entertainment industries always prefer the safe bet over a "risky" venture. That said, there are always one or two anime that manage to rise above mediocrity, but there's still a very large gap between being good, and being great.
IS is, first and foremost, a reasonably popular ongoing light novel series by Yumizuru Izuru that began publication in May 2009. Six volumes have already been released under the MF Bunko J label (part of Media Factory), and the seventh is due out in April 2011. In May 2010 a manga adaptation by Akahoshi Kenji began serialisation in Monthly Comic Alive, with production on the anime adaptation beginning later that year.
Set in the near future, the story initially seems to be about powered exoskeletons called Infinite Stratos, an advanced piece of technology that is more powerful than any existing weaponry, but can only be used by girls and women. Because of this, society and the world have had to adapt so that females are now in authority, but all of that changes when Orimura Ichika, a 15 year old student, is found to be the only male in the world with the ability to pilot the machines. Because of this, and for his own protection, he is forced to attend the prestigious Infinite Stratos Academy.
Seems a pretty straightforward set up right?
In fact this show is so straightforward and predictable it verges on being dull. Aside from being a light novel/manga adaptation (which seems to be the rage these days), the storyline is about as generic as one can get in anime, with almost every stereotype and "popular" theme on display. The plot initially seems intriguing until one realises that the whole concept of Infinite Stratos is nothing more than an excuse to put a "special" teenaged guy in a school full of hormone crazed girls, and let them have fun with each other. The storyline is only peripherally about the problems resulting from the development of the Infinite Stratos machines as they never really come to the fore until towards the end of the series.
But those are only the surface issues.
The series is limited in terms of design as many aspects of the visuals are adapted directly from the manga. Unfortunately this doesn't really do the show any favours as aside from a degree of futurism in the backgrounds and the conceptualisation of the exoskeletal armours, everything else is the epitome of genericism. The big book of harem characters has been used extensively for pretty much everyone, with all of the lead roles looking more like cardboard cut-outs that would readily grace any other generic high school anime of this type. Granted there is a degree of facial expression, but that's not enough to raise the character design in any measurable way.
Thankfully there are two areas where the visuals actually manage to pass muster. The backgrounds are coloured and detailed rather well, but there are some scenes where the quality improves dramatically in order to focus the viewer's attention on the action. In addition to that, the animation is pretty good throughout the series, but the quality work only really comes to the fore during sequences of IS combat.
Another area where Infinite Stratos does manage to attain a degree of respectability is the acting, but even that's not really saying much. After all, this is a harem romantic comedy with some science fiction and fanservice thrown in for good measure, so viewers shouldn't expect Shakespeare. It's surprising then, that Uchiyama Kouki actually manages to play the role of Ichika rather well, and the same could also be said of Hikasa Youko et al in the roles of the girls who want to find out how well Ichika can use his weapon.
That said, all of the exclamations, weird noises, mannerisms, and changes of pitch and tone that one would associate with this type of show are on offer, but while they're handled rather well by the seiyuu, there's simply too little going on for them to really show off their talents. The main reason for this is the mundane script, and viewers may find themselves suffering from bouts of deja vu during specific scenes, especially if they've recently watched any other harem anime.
As for the music, the background tracks are nice enough and there is some variety to be had thanks to the composition skills of Nanase Hikaru, but the problems lie in the choreography, and more importantly, the relevance. There are occasions where the score seems out of place with the on screen action, and while this is due to a slight error in the timing in some cases, more often it's because the background music simply doesn't mesh with the scene. This is also true for the opening theme, Straight Jet by Kuribayashi Minami, which already has difficulty standing out since it's a pretty standard J-pop affair so the last thing it needed was poor choreography. As for the ending theme, Super Stream, this generic little ditty is sung by the actress of whichever female character is managing to keep up with the manliness of Ichika during the credit sequence, while the other female seiyuu performing backing vocals.
Speaking of manliness, it should come as no surprise that there's little in the way of it here, but then this is justified to a degree by the fact that Infinite Stratos features a female dominated society. Ichika is the typical harem lead who doesn't seem to have a clue that so many girls like him, especially as he has very few redeeming features and a slight complex about his older sister, and in true harem fashion he even forgets or misunderstands childhood promises so the story can have that little bit more drama.
And that's just him.
The girls are just as poor when it comes to characterisation, although thinking about it, maybe poor isn't the right word. They fit into the story rather well, they may look like cardboard cut-outs from other harem anime but they do retain some individuality. They can be annoyingly self centred and stupid, but they're supposed to be hormone crazed teenaged girls so maybe that's normal (apologies if you're a hormone crazed teenaged girl who doesn't act self centred and stupid).
Oh wait. Most of them are supposed to be tsundere characters (all of them except the one with the short blond hair in fact), so maybe poor was the right word after all.
There's little in the way of actual character development as the derived and contrived nature of the plot and story doesn't really allow for any great introspection from any of the roles. There are many potential opportunities to push the characters in a totally new direction, but these are not taken as the whole series is less about telling a good story, and more about cashing in on the harem bandwagon.
Regardless of its flaws, Infinite Stratos will undoubtedly find a home in the hearts of some viewers, which is perfectly fine if you like this type of show, and to be honest much of the series is reasonably inoffensive, especially if the viewer has managed to sit through any other harem anime. That said, it should be pointed out that the concept of the story had the potential for being something special. The idea of a society dominated by women due to the development of a new weapon offers up questions of gender roles, societal balance, political machinations, technological advancements, etc, etc, all of which are treated as minor annoyances that get in the way of finding out which girl Ichika is going to choose.
Granted there are some good points to be found in various aspects of the series, but these are outweighed by a lacklustre storyline, poor characterisation, and an overall sense that everything has been done before. read more
With the dawn of the second season, I think it's time to revisit an old friend. In this review, I will attempt to describe IS: Infinite Stratos and it's components, then give you it's worth as a series.
The basic premise of Infinite Stratos is set in a world where armored mecha suit, the Infinite Stratos is invented, thus rendering all other technology obsolete. One catch, this suit can only be worn by women.
While this was an interesting premise, the setting itself just attracts questions. Why can only women wear it? What has the effects of this technology had on society? What happened to the political relations of the world after this technology? What governments has used it?
Sadly, none of these questions are satisfyingly answered, because the next portion of the premise is going to make the TRUE premise apparent. While the original premise demanded world-exploration and examination, none of that is shown because the series basically only sets in one place: IS Academy. The place where Students aspiring to learn the techniques of IS from all over the world, where the armor/suit is used as an entertainment device(I will get to this later).
Our Main Character is Ichika Orimura, an average High School student and the only male on the planet so far to discovered to have had the capability to use Infinite Stratos. And because of circumstances, he has to head to IS Academy, a place where he will be the only man.
And because of this setup, the show faithfully follows the route to harem, where 90% of the girls wants the Main Character's D, otherwise is interested(and certainly the main protagonists). Since it sets itself up as a Harem series, what is should do is explore the characters who are complex and makes us care for them, let's see the components of this series:
Coherency/Continunity: While the series sets itself up as a series that begs exploration of the world's politics and what happened in the world after the invention of IS, this is merely a setup where the main character can have a school full of girls all to himself.
The idea that women started to dominate the world is hardly ever shown, since the show secludes itself in the IS Academy. Where contrary to common sense, depicts females just about every other Harem series does! I will get into the characters later. The main point is, the social/political changes is shown without any changes!
And the fact that IS is a weapon(more powerful than any, mind you) begs the question on why has it not been used militarily? A weapon this powerful would have the government SCRAMBLING for it, and certainly not only used as an entertainment device(LOLWUT?). The idea if that if it is women who controls it would lead to world peace is completely illogical and is given as a fact. Any person has the power to commit evil, and being a part of a gender does not exclude you.
Characters: The worst aspect of the series are the characters. Virtually all but one of the female cast is depicted as a Tsundere, and often violent too and nothing outside her stereotype. Rin the Chinese girl and Houki the Japanese girl are basically the same in terms of personality. While Cecilia the British girl have nothing really defines her other than "Ojou-sama" type of character. The only one that is not depicted as a Tsundere is Charlotte, whom is wonderful.
And the main character? About as generic as you get, and so dense that you can't even find it on the periodic table. Ichika is a self-insert character that has to deal with the woes of "GIRLS ALL AROUND ME! OH NOEZ!!" Difficult to achieve an level of empathy to and overall a dumbass to peoples' feelings to an unrealistic degree.
Production: The production of the series is relative above average. By no means is it bad. but the sound is rather generic and nothing I could remember to write home about, although the opening song was somewhat memorable. The character designs are generic by today's standards, again, nothing to write to home about. Although there are several prominent Seiyuus acting in the characters, such as Kana Hanazawa. But obvious incoherencies is show, such as one episode, a character fights the main character but is somehow stopped by Chifuyu's sword... Out of nowhere
Being a mecha anime, there are also fight-scenes featuring the Infinite Stratos'. Probably the best part of the series, unfortunately, are short, insignificant, and CGI-animated
Plot: Wait, what? Oh, the plot. Simply put, there isn't much other than a string of events that puts Ichika in various situations where the main characters fall in love with him. Infinite Stratos, as well as the expected consequences of it existing, is not a part of the plot. A random IS does show up and destroy stuff, but next episode, that is no longer a worry.
If you are here looking for a good plot that maps out the consequences of it's premise, turn around. If you are here looking for an above average harem story with quality characters, go elsewhere. Truthfully, without the ridiculously unnecessarily armored IS, this series is just a generic RomCom Harem series that is barely funny at all.
There are bunch of holes in the plot and story. If you are looking for fanservice and cute girls(relatively) or Charlotte Dunois with a splash of CGI-animated Mecha fighting, come right in.
If there's one thing thats also great about this series, it's that the series does not pretend to be deep or anything that it is not, making it far less cringeworthy for some viewers to enjoy. read more
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 all, they're all basically the MC's doms because he's useless as all hell throughout the plot and constantly needs to be coddled. He also can't seem to figure out that all of the girls want his D despite them all literally being on it constantly. Autism is a common trend for Harem MCs apparently.
Nothing from this show is really all that memorable, the art is ok, the soundtrack is what you'd expect from a generic harem show like this, the plotline can be compared to something like Spongebob or King of the Hill. It doesn't even try to push the fanservice that much until the next season or the OVAs.
I don't see how anyone could enjoy this show unless they've watched pretty much every other Harem out there. This show is basically To Love Ru if it were even worse. read more
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 involve girls in mech suits
Both have a male protagonist that has a special ability
Both have the male saving girls and forming a harem
Identical Character (Tohka and Houki)
Same Mecha System
and other, also you will find many IS Content in Date a Live
Date A Live & Infinite Stratos both make an interesting romance comedy to watch as the main character in both is constantly being bashed and sometimes at the mercy of others.
-In each of these series the main characters life is constantly in danger whether it be from enemy or the other love rivals
-Both Infinite and Date the females have some sort of superhuman/supernatural power they use in order to get what they want.
-The main characters siblings in both series are someone of high importance.
-Main character is saved by one or multiple members of the female cast at times.
These two series both deal with a guy surrounded by girls due to certain circumstances, and the girls seem to like the protagonists. Both animes give off a similar vibe, and they have a similar style of comedy and romance.
Very similar in terms of harem anime and the diversity of romancable characters it provides.
they are both about a guy and a lot of girls, the only diffrence is that in IS the MC is not aware of the fact that all the girls like him. mostly romance with comedy and a bit of action, i tihnk if you like one you will like the other.
Both have mechas, action, and of course GIRLS ! Both of our protagonist are oblivious, not knowing why they are surrounded by a harem of girls.
For aesthetic and abstract reasons, Date-A Live holds a ton of similarities to Infinite Stratos, it's pretty much what you'll think of each other when any of these titles are brought up. Kirei shoujos, sci-fi, a shonen who becomes the mediator where each of the girls falls to him for reasons that he's the main character, blushing this fanservice that, and ultimately these characters are memorable.
These two shows are nowhere near my cup of tea, but I acknowledge them both because despite all the silliness, there's plot and character entwined.
And oh, there's Marina Inoue in both of them as well.
for those who love semi-harem stuffs...these two will sync perfectly with your mind...both have good storyline...with genres of romance,perv and mecha, even though they have lots of similarities still have unique differences
Both are about male protagonist's who works with girls to help save the world, however in Infinite Stratos the protagonist bonds with a team of girls and they work together to save the world from evil whereas in Date A Live the protagonist befriends the girls to stop them from destroying the world. Both are part of the Harem, School, Sci-fi and comedy genres. Also in both the male protagonists are unique in what they do, as in they're one of a kind.
Both have a harem sort of feel while at the same time provide comedy and romance also. Date alive is a more serious/ or more action anime while infinite stratos has a metropolis-tic theme and feel. Overall though I feel that both anime have the same feels and are worth watching equally as much as the other.
- Girls-only-power (1 exception in IS)...
- "Wears" machines and flies across the sky
- Action, lots of dynamic mid-air battling scenes
- Clumsy, weak main character with great potential who grows fast
- A cool mentor/leader
- Takes team work sometimes to take down enemy
Girls flying around with specialized equipment made only for them. Both shows even seem to have similar characters, with even some bearing striking resemblances to strike witches characters
Both anime have an all girls mecha/flying army.
If you observe properly, you would notice that the countries where the main characters came from are just the same. And you could also compare Laura Bodewig to Sakamoto Mio and also the fact that only girls can use the Striker
unit/IS (Infinite Stratos) except that a man could use the IS.
Strike witches is more better than IS: Infinite Stratos because the story is more focused. Unlike Infinite Stratos, Infinite Stratos only have a few episodes that is good and all the others is a joke. So if you want a more serious plot, watch Strike Witches.
Girls in sci-fi action are themes of both series. Although Infinite Stratos falls into the harem genre due to the presence of a male protagonist, both series offers great sci-fi action and stunning OST. Comedy is also present.
- both have compact machines that allow you to fight and fly
- the main characters are new too the machines but have talent
- the person who invented the machines in both series are someone close to one of the main characters
- the machines in both series are mainly operated by girls using a unique power
Both animes include technology on it which is used to save mankind.
Both Mecha anime
Both has a pinch of ecchi
Only girls has the power to use the IS and Striker Unit
They use the machines to save the places in danger
- The power exceptional to females only, although IS included 1 suitable male
- Both include some sort of machine battle suit
- lots of action (dynamic air action)
- clueless main protagonist who in the end gains the strongest power/battlesuit, whatever.
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.
With both MC being the only males who were born with XX male syndrome in the entire universe of these anime, they were able to obtain the ability to grasp marital aids only females were restricted with. Infinite Stratos introduces the strap-on exoskeleton which is harnessed on the user. Blade Dance on the other hand follows a similar concept to Campione, where a user can obtain one or more "ディルド," pronounced dirudo in Japanese, essentially a magical weapon. This weapon can transform into a "性の奴隷," pronounced "sei no dorei," but roughly translate to an elemental animal (in myths and stories). Both also feature harems with very identical character design (Houki and Ellis; both are weapon masters, have similar hairstyles and are tsunderes). Both MAL scores are pretty similar in the lower range of 7.3 and worse.
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.
Both are action harem comedies where main hero is a male that has some power only females are supposed to have (Operating IS/Contracting spirit). While Seitei Tsukai no Blade Dance is fantasy, IS: Infinite Stratos is mecha. Both anime have some perverted parts.
Both anime have an only male transferred into an all-girls school setting, with both MC's being able to use an ability which only females can use.
One of the major difference is that IS is set in a sci-fi setting, while STnBD has a fantasy like world.
Blade dance is pretty much like IS but with a beter MC.
Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance:
-Protagonist is the only male in the world that has the power to create a contract with spirits
-Protagonist is forced into an all girls school
-Premodern setting in a magical world where shrine priestesses control spirits
-Protagonist is the only male in the world who can activate and use an IS mecha.
-Protagonist is forces into an all girls school
-Futuristic setting in a world where girls control IS mechas.
These series are very similar in central them, with a boy having the ability to do something normally done by only girls and going to a school that trains him in that thing. The schools obviously contain only girls. Although one is magic and the other mechs it still revolves around a main character with the same problem. Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance is a summer 2014 anime is not completed at this time.
Infinite Stratos is similar to Bladedance of Elementalers by the fact that both is about a single male having a ability of what only girls can do in that world and then being transferred into a girls only school where they learn to use these abilities. The only difference is that in Infinite Stratos all the girls at the school immediately fall in love with him unlike in Bladedance of the Elemantalers.
-Both male MCs are the only one in the word who have superpowers that only girls have
-Both male MCs forcefully enroll into an all-girls school
This Kinda have a similar feel I.S has less Eechi Scene but more harem but its opposite in Freezing Also they have a story kinda the same of Girl being the ones with Power but in Freezing there a limiters for boys I.S has nothing really
Both anime are set in a sort of futuristic world, and girls are dominant. Infiinite Stratos has girls fighting in mech suits, whereas Freezing has girls fighting with weapons they summon from having an orgasm. Similar? :P sorta, but they're both harems AND they are both airing this year so go watch both at the same time!
They both have powers than only females can use.
The Difference between Freezing and IS is that Freezing is more ecchi and IS is about mechas
Both have an international cast of large chested bishoujo who come from all kind of different countries. These women fight using technologies only women can use and summon some kind of armor and weapons. In IS women become some kind of mecha; while in Freezing women wear paper-thin clothing and mainly melee weapons.
Also both anime are ecchi.
Doesnt really have that overall feel, IS has more rom-com like feel while Freezing is more based on crazy action.
However while watching Freezing it reminded me of IS with the Females having the special powers or that they are the only ones who can do a certain thing. The main male protagonist in both animes are "different" then the other males.
This is my first recommendation so please tell me if im doing something wrong ;)
Both IS and Freezing involve extremely powerful women gathered at a High School in order to learn about their abilities.
Both male protagonists seem to be unique because of their gender (IS) or their personal skills (Freezing)
Furthermore both male protagonists manage to create a Harem
As for the differences IS is a mecha like genre-anime ( gundam etc.) while Freezing makes use of genetic manipulation and fantasy (somebody compared it to neon genesis evangelion)
A big difference is the amount of tension and drama within the story
While IS seems kind of carefree and funny Freezing deals more with the problems of the protagonists (both male and female)
To sum it up there are definitely some diefferences but to me the overall feeling was the same
I enjoyed both of them
Both series contain a male lead that teams up with females to battle enemies. When in-battle, both of the males usually focus on one girl only, while off-battle, they own a pretty nice harem, including as many girls as possible at the same time. They both also deliver quite a lot of fan-service, with Infinite Stratos doing so through the display of our main character and a selected girl that's on-screen at that time, while Freezing tending to display the female characters' bodies as/when they perform various activities, such as swimming.
They are both harem anime focused on big boobies?!?! They have really good story lines and focus on the relationship between girls and guys. They also both revolve around fighting.
If you like mecha related battles with flying battle suits and lasers guns and of course we can't forget the pretty girls. You will like IS: Infinite Stratos. Since its pretty much just like Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut although it dosn't have as much Dragons and stuff. its less supernatural and more Tech.
Almost identical to This series in terms of characteristics but has a different story and style
-Both have a Summon Mecha type Fighting style (and really similar Mecha designs at that).
-Both Have an MC going to an all/Majority girls school
-Reluctant and unlucky MC
-Obvious Harem That starts to form
- Both are mecha fighting and has some love.
- Both have a little bit of each others story.
- Both have the single-boy-in-the-whole academy plot.
The moment I started watching Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut I was reminded of IS: Infinite Stratos. Why is that? Well, besides from the obvious fact that both are shows within the harem genre, mecha (i.e. battle machines, shiny futuristic weapons, etc.) is very integral to the plot structure of both shows. Furthermore, in both shows, you have the same set-up, with the male main lead enrolling in an academy full of females. Additionally, both shows have the male main lead finds himself in very awkward situations with the other students. Many of the main characters in both shows also share very similar personalities. If you were a fan of IS: Infinite Stratos, Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut will also definitely suit you.
These animes are so similar it's almost at copyright level. Both have mecha, ecchi and harem aspects as well as the character designs being almost the same.
- School full of girls all attracted to main protagonists
- deals with empires (Bahamut) or countries (Stratos)
- both have good animation and a good soudtrack
- both are unfortunately bland harems
- both have generic characters
- both have exotic school uniforms
- both have mecha fighting
Both have same exoskeleton like battle suits and the MC enrolls in a Girl's academy, Harem is also pretty much the same.
Both mecha with male protagonists having their (unwanted) harem.
if you enjoy IS Infinite Stratos you will love this it has a large character base but each one are better then IS characters .side note the reason for this being less populer is its low advertising production
simular in aspects ofboth series.
.female characters fallin for male lead(isekai no seikishi mongatari has the best lead male charcter for harems)
just watch one episode and you will get hooked
Both of the anime involve mecha, both have a male rider as the main protagonist in a world where most(all) other riders are female, both harem anime, the main difference is that the girls in the harem for IS are a traditional harem (childhood friend, transfer student, beauty from another country, etc...) while those in InSM are all different to a traditional Harem, also the episod lenghts are 24ish minutes for IS and 50ish minues for InSM
Both are harem and macha animes, however Isekai no Seikishi has a fantasy element to it as well.
Really similar, because everything goes about guy who is really strong, in other words typical harem anime.
Both protagonists end up in institutes with large number of girls and both have a body armour type robot!!
