First Impression – Infinite Stratos

For the first few minutes I felt like I was having deja vu from Dragonauts of all things, with what looked like the same kind of setting, overacting and a horribly cliched plot. This plus a combination with the harem from Chaos Head. Definitely not a winning combination. Fortunately in a few minutes it got much better, as the creators seemed to realize that they have a hopeless setup and decided not to take it seriously. If this show continues to focus on the parody and not lapse into SERIOUS BUSINESS like so many shows of this type seem to it could end up being pretty decent, but I don’t have my hopes set too high.

Once the female lead let her hair down, she really reminded me of the president from Seitokai Yakuindomo.

They really do look similar. I looked it up afterwards and apparently they even have the same voice actress. I wonder if Shinonono has a teddy bear….
