Infinite Stratos, Ghost in the Shell: SAC Promos Posted
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese television station TBS began streaming a new commercial for the IS (Infinite Stratos) television anime series on Friday. The television series will premiere on January 6. The website also posted pictures of the official itasha (decorated car), the items that will be offered at Tokyo's Comic Market next week, and the cover of Monthly Comic Alive magazine with IS on the cover.
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 the stereoscopic 3D conversion of Kenji Kamiyama and Production I.G's Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society movie began streaming the 98-second theatrical trailer on Friday. Kamiyama himself is overseeing the conversion, and I.G also added a newly animated opening sequence. The movie will open in Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 theater and other Japanese theaters on March 26, 2011.
