Sentai Filmworks licenses Infinite Stratos!

Yesterday, Sentai Filmworks licensed a sci-fi/harem anime series Infinite Stratos, AKA IS. This is unique in that Infinite Stratos started airing in Japan less than three weeks ago.  The anime series is about an academy that trains students to use the IS weapons. However, only girls can use these, untill one young man gains the ability.

The anime is based on a based on a light novel series by Izuru Yumizuru which has been running since May 2009, and currently has six volumes. A manga adaption by Kenji Akahoshi began in 2010 in Monthly Comic Alive, and is still ongoing with a single volume.

The anime began in Japan in January 7, and will get 12 episodes. The anime is animated by 8-Bit (Their first solo animation!) and directed by Yasuhito Kikuchi (Macross Frontier). The anime was met with very negative reviews.
