What can I say about the sequel to the big hit known as Infinite Stratos? Infinite Stratos 2? More like Infinite Shit 2! The first season wasn't the greatest thing ever animated but how far are you willing to fall before you fall into the abyss known as IS2? Read on please!
One could argue there is no story! Only emptiness. There is a story however and it sucks. If they had no specific storyline and instead centered on tournaments fighting for Ichika's happy sacks until they graduated, I would be totally unopposed to it and it would've garnered it a 7 or 8. Unfortunately
it follows the light novels, and the light novel does something extremely groundbreaking: It puts in an evil organization. Never mind how original the name "Phantom Task" is. (Say it out loud! it sends shivers down your spine!). No anime or manga has ever DARED put in an evil organization into their storyline. EARTH SHATTERING! The planet is desperately trying to glue itself back together! Help! I'm entering space!
IS2 gets half a full score only for it's character design. The girls are quite preetee!! I want to hold hands with Charlotte Dunois, pet Laura Bodewig's head, spy on Cecelia Alcott while she makes toilet, wipe my nuts all over Huang Lingyin's sleeping face, and ambush Houki Shinonono with my golden shower as she washes up after kendo practice. IS2 does not fail with the pretty ladeez!
They introduce two new chracters: Tatenashi the student council president (because that's required in every high school harem) and her ugly sister who would look fine without glasses but sadly only exists to serve those with a fetish for NURDZ!
Ichika Orimura.. Has changed.. During the first season he had this expression on his face that made him seem like a 5 year old in a older teen's body - In other words he looked like an idiot. Now Ichika is a cool calm Harley driving thug who takes nothing from no one and takes everything from everyone. He looks that way at least.
However one character really pissed me off. Tabane Shinonono the genius rabbit chimp hybrid. I enjoyed her in the first season, she was quite adorable and moe. However, her scene in the final episode was the most cringe inducing thing I've ever seen. It was bad enough they introduced a cliche "secret organization" into the mix but now they try to make the cute random critter-like Tabane all BA and overpowered in a scene that may have got some of you excited, but made me slap my hand right through my head. It's stuck in there and I can not see!!
The OP and ED for the first season were great. The OP for the second season on the other hand SUCKED! The ED was aight doe'.
The soundtrack production team really messed up picking this anime to create music for. They did wonderfully but there talents could have gone to a show that deserved it much more.
No complaints. The art and character design are great. As usual the mecha battles are excellently rendered although the "technology" (such as the mechs user interface) designs are very questionable.
This show makes me want to barf into my lap just so I can see the barf and barf again to ease the nausea from watching this piece of shit. This is possibly the wor- wait what?? an 8?? N*GGA IS U HIGH?
Yea that's right! This show is very enjoyable! Yeaaa I said it! Overall this definitely deserves a 4, possibly less but the enjoyablity deserves an 8! ECHHI IS EPIC! EIE..IO! AND ON HIS FARM HE HAD A TSUNDERE! EIEIO! WITH A ITS NOT LIKE I WANTED TO HERE AND A ITS NOT LIKE A WANTED TO THERE! While the "main plot" is cringe worthy and should be blocked out of your mind sit back relax with a six pack and enjoy the fanservice.
This anime is highly recommended! FOR ANTS!!
