posted on 2011-01-19 12:50 EST
The Anime Network has issued a press release announcing that it will begin simulcasting the science-fiction anime Infinite Stratos with episodes one through three on Sunday, January 23 at 9:30 p.m. EST, with additional episodes to be added every Sunday at the same time. The first episode will be available for free to all visitors; subsequent episodes will be available to all registered users, including free users.
Infinite Stratos is based on Izuru Yumizuru's light novel series IS and revolves around a school training pilots to use the Infinite Stratos weapon system. The system can only be piloted by females who are selected from all over the world, except for one boy: Ichika Orimura, "the only male in the world who can use the IS." The television anime was announced last June, and has been licensed in North America by Sentai Filmworks.
Last August, Yumizuru blogged that he was in poor health which interfered with his writing.
