Infinite Stratos Light Novels Get TV Anime Green-Lit

The 96th "Sono Na mo J" flyer is announcing this month that a television anime adaptation of Izuru Yumizuru's IS (Infinite Stratos) light novel series has been green-lit. The "popular high-speed school battle romantic comedy" 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 Shinonono, a childhood friend.
Media Factory's MF Bunko imprint will publish the fifth volume of the light novel series with okiura's illustrations in Japan on June 25. Kenji Akaboshi launched a manga version in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine last month.
