GoodFleshed out anime well, light novel type quick and easy read interesting being in head s head look forward to rest of series In The Near Future, A Japanese Scientist Engineers A Powered Exoskeleton Called Infinite Stratos IS Possessing Technology And Combat Capabilities Far Advanced Than Any Other Weapon System, The IS Threatens To Destabilize The World Faced With Such An Overpowering Weapon, The Nations Of The World Enact The Alaska Treaty , Which States That IS Will Never Be Used For Military Combat And That Existing IS Technology Must Be Equally Distributed To All Nations, To Prevent Any One Nation From Dominating The Others The Introduction Of The IS Does, However, Have A Major Effect On Society As IS Can Only Be Operated By Women, There Is A Shift In The Power Balance Between Men And Women, Where Women Now Dominate Society Over MenTen Years After IS Was Initially Introduced, The World Has Entered A New Age Of Peace The Peace Is Shattered, However, By Ichika Orimura, A Year Old Japanese Boy Able To Operate An IS Realizing The Potential, The Japanese Government Forces The Bewildered Young Man To Attend The Prestigious Infinite Stratos Academy, An International Academy Where IS Pilots From All Over The World Are Trained Thus, He Starts A Busy High School Life Surrounded By Nothing But Girls Who Can Use IS While it s a given that the hero will attract the romantic interests of anyone even slightly attractive, this novel wound up being ridiculously sexist What I found most unappealing was the authors refusal to treat his own setting women are in charge of everything, because tech makes the much stronger than men seriously It seems this was really just an excuse for the protagonist to have no male competition, and a convenient excuse to demonstrate that women really do want the man to be in charge if at all possible.Other than the hard core sexism, the book was an entertaining read, though fairly typical for a light novel. If you like the series Freezing, then you ll enjoy this I think. really interesting series books 1 7, the publisher has changed and so awaiting book 8 once a new publisher takes it. I finished volume 1 It s a harem series in a high school setting, so expect to see all those tropes that come with that Tsunderes, dense guy, misunderstandings What makes this one a bit interesting is that a lot of it is told from a first person point of view with our dense hero, so we hear what he sees, and since he is dense some of what he sees isn t quite what s going on Like, one girl looks away when he turns to her and he thinks she is being cold towards him, when she in fact is probably looking away out of embarrassment.The characters aren t that interesting as of now, and I doubt they ll get much better Our protagonist Orimura is just stupid and dense he doesn t see anything sexually like, one of his childhood friends promised him when she got older and good at cooking she would cook him pork for life He took this as an opportunity for free food, and not as her offering to be his wife The supporting cast fit into some tropes, although Orimura sometimes incorrectly reads their characters, so you do kind of have to work to figure out which trope they really are Houki, the forced lead and cover gal is honestly not that endearing to me, and our protagonist can t even really recall his past with her, which seems like a recipe for disaster The cast is rounded out by Cecilia Brit Ojou character , Rin childhood friend 2 Yamada Maya teacher and Chifuyu Sister and Homeroom Teacher.The Mecha gets introduced pretty early on, and it s fairly important, though harem shenanigans probably take up pages You only learn some small details about the history of its invention created by Houki s sister, developed for space travel, used in sports, only to be used for emergency military operations We get a few opportunities to see IS in action, though really only two combat scenarios There s probably to learn there.Overall, it was ok I think it does some stuff that I find fun like Orimura s horrible cliche sayings, and his confidence in his very wrong deductions , but yeah, it wastes a lot of time with harem stuff I think introducing Rin in this volume was a bit much Her story kind of takes over the plot halfway through the book, whereas the other two gals I didn t think dominated the first half as much I d like to learn about Chifuyu too.
