The words "TV anime" says it is not about the LNDVD at all. Maybe remake is not the perfect word but a new production when translated in english?
OK, it is a TV anime. Guess I will start a new thread for it then. Yeah, possibly a new production with a new studio, but it will still be called a 2nd season. And we are not sure if it is a remake or not.

The words "TV anime" says it is not about the LNDVD at all. Maybe remake is not the perfect word but a new production when translated in english? Maybe like they'll start from vol.1 again and continue up until they catch up on the new ones.

Might be on ANN in a few hours. Whoops it is on there already.
The thing is the only other information I can see is vol.8 of the LN has a DVD, so I wonder whether it just means that. Also not sure why you are so sure "it is a remake".

As long as it diverges from the typical 1-2 episode good setup, 7-8 episodes of horrible fillers and 1-2 episodes of ending action, I'm all for the reboot.

I actually hope for the same VA to stay... Im really a fan of the current cast <3
Gogo reboot 1st season AND 2nd season! :D

for those who are still unsure. The reboot is starting at volume 8 of the novels. Before the dispute the novels ended at volume 7 which is around where the anime ends, so there is a chance of a second season once the novels start coming out, giving them more material. Also I think they might be doing a re-run of the first season but with updated character designs and so forth.

2011 Anime Sales for Inifinite Stratos:
33,812 - Infinite Stratos (Winter, 6 vols) 9,003 DVD (27%) / 24,810 BD (74%)

I just wanted to post these to show it was an extremely popular anime in 2011 and currently is. It was also the 18th most sold anime of all time. Someone earlier posted the Manga Sales and even those did fantastic. So you can be sure that it is a possibility that they might have a second season in the future. Also this anime has a huge fan base whether it be in Japan or America it still has a lot of people willing to watch it.

Well, in a way, it's not as if Ichika is the big strong man with all the women to protect. It's quite the opposite, really.

In any case, you can't lose the harem because the IS girls are amongst the best characters harems have to offer.

This show needs to keep the concept but lose the harem.
I could never forgive the fact that a now female dominated society would still devolve into a typical harem

As long as the doujins keep coming, I'm totally fine with this.

I agree, the IS doujins are better than the show itself

Indeed...

Since Infinite Stratos is now owned by Overlap, I guess Kadokawa won't get their mittens on that series!

i just want there to be another season

Dec 27, 2012 8:54 PM by Zero_Vi_Britania

If it's a reboot, then it should follow the light novel...the first IS had some missing characters...but if its a second season, then i hope that those characters in the light novel that didn't show up in the first IS, will get their time to show up...
