The Japanese television station TBS began streaming the 92-second long version of the second promotional video for the IS (Infinite Stratos) television anime series on Monday. The video was first screened at the "Animate Ichioshi Bishōjo Matsuri" event on Saturday, and the television series itself will premiere next January. The anime's official website also confirmed that Minami Kuribayashi will also sing the opening theme song "Straight Jet," while voice actress Yōko Hikasa (as her character Hōki Shinonono) and others will sing the ending theme song "Super Stream."
The anime adapts Izuru Yumizuru's "popular high-speed school battle romantic comedy" light novel series. The story centers around the IS Academy: a school for training the pilots of the Infinite Stratos weapon system, which can only be used by females. Candidates plucked from girls from countries all over the world are brought here — as well as one boy named Ichika Orimura. As it turns out, Ichika is "the only male in the world who can use the IS." His classmates include Hōki, a childhood friend.
The official website for Visual Art's/Key and P.A. Works' Angel Beats! television anime series has begun streaming a second preview for the special episode "Stairway to Heaven." The seventh Blu-ray and DVD volume of the anime will ship with this unaired special, along with the 13th and final television episode and "another epilogue," on December 22.
