In the near future, Japan creates an armored suit called Infinite Stratos, IS for short, for outer space usage but was later used as a military weapon until it was finally incorporated as a new sport. The one drawback to the IS is that it can only be piloted by a female, or so people thought, until Orimura Ichika came along. As the younger brother of the famous pilot, Orimura Chifuyu, who represented the nation of Japan and went undefeated her whole professional career, Ichika is the only male in the entire world who can pilot an IS. He was accepted into the IS Academy where all the students are female except for him and he has to train to become a pilot. He is surprised to see that his teacher is none other than his sister Chifiyu and is almost annoyed by all the attention he is getting as the only guy on campus. Almost every girl around him is fighting against each other to gain Ichika’s heart and with all the flirting going around, he barely has time to master using his IS.

User Recommendations

In both series, the male protagonists are considered unique in respect to the series' premise: controlling mecha in IS, and magic in Trinity Seven. Both protagonists are surrounded by many female characters reinforcing the two series' harem and romance categorisation. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Both are shounens about a guy who wants to pilot a machine that supposedly only females can operate. He goes to a girls' school. In Alto, he hides his gender.

Girls in Mecha suits with ecchi elements.  
reportRecommended by Tesla_Infuse
Both series frequently situate the male protagonist working together with a number of female characters; all of whom are romantically interested in him. Both series are also characterised by action and ecchi. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
In both of these titles, the characters attend a school that trains them in combat. In IS: Infinite Stratos, combat involves the use of mechanical suits. In Hidan no Aria, students learn how to become detectives. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Despite being typified by different narrative styles and aesthetics, both titles revolve around a male protagonist who are the only one of their kind. In IS: Infinite Stratos, the male protagonist is the only male person to be able to control the series' mechanical suits. In Break Blade, the male protagonist is the sole user to be able to use an ancient golem.
