Anime Spotlight #45

It’s all your favourite Harem cliches in one Anime!

Infinite Stratos Season 2 Review | WWHCurrent Community

Infinite Stratos pretty-much has it all.  It’s a Harem Anime, foremost, since the IS units the Anime is named after are, with only one glaring exception, only able to be piloted by girls.  The IS units are mechas, so there’s that one checked off too.  Also, check on the prim know-it-all British transfer and the overly by-the-books German transfer.  Check off the girl-pretending-to-be-a-boy, the Tsundere, and Harem-boy’s protective older sister that got him into all this mess.  Of course, no Anime like this one would be complete without the occasional Anime fall scenes (that defy human anatomy) as well as beach episode and that one episode where all the girls have to chase after the boy in a secret competition.  Finally, the boy himself is squeamish, clueless to how girls work, average in terms of attractiveness, but always throws himself in front of dangers for them without hesitation.

That’s basically the jist of this show.  Did I miss anything?

Can’t believe they made two seasons of this show….

Anime Spotlight #32

A hot-head, self-proclaimed goddess, and painfully meek girl walk into…a guy with actual spine.

Kanata Age does the superhero-sacrifice thing, but makes it back alive (somehow) only to be called a traitor by all the other “Sky Wizards” at Mistigon.  What else could go wrong?

How about:  Forced to teach Fire Team E601, the Academy’s worst-performing team ever!

>Misora Whitale — E601’s leader, epic tsundere, and always on the shortest fuse.  No wonder she has red hair!

>Rico Flamel — The self-proclaimed goddess, who’s in love with herself and refuses to do anything because she’s “too good” for the routines of “mere mortals.”

>Lecty Eisenach — The shyest, most introverted, least confident young girl alive, who hails from a wealthy, well-known family and is meant to carry on her family’s unique fighting style (if only she were sure of herself to do so).

Kanata, though, is my favourite of them all in this Anime.  He could give Arata from Trinity Seven a run for his money, the way he is with girls, and everything he does is, ultimately, for a well-thought out purpose.  It is for that reason that, I feel, only he had what it took to make E601 great; great enough even to win the Sky Wizards Tournament.

Well worth a watch!
