IS: Infinite Stratos is a light novel series by Izuru Yumizuru that was first released in 2009. The light novel was first published by Media Factory but issues between the author and publisher arose and ultimately Media Factory dropped the series. The series was picked up by Overlap, and with the change of publisher a change of artist was also issued. The first 7 volumes have been re-released under Overlap and the first new volume published was volume 8. Infinite Stratos was given an anime adaptation in 2011, which was produced by 8-Bit and ran for 12 episodes during the Winter 2011 anime season. An additional OVA and second season followed, once again produced by 8-Bit, and ran for 12 episodes during the Fall 2013 anime season. A manga adaptation illustrated by Kenji Akaboshi ran from mid 2010 to 2012.
Japan engineered an armed powered exoskeleton “Infinite Stratos” (IS) and it became the mainstream of weapons. Since only women can operate IS, women dominate the society over men. Orimura Ichika is a 15 year old boy and accidentally touches an IS placed in the IS pilot training school. He is found to be the only man who can operate IS and forced to enter the training school. Ichika’s busy school life surrounded by girls has begun.
