The official Twitter account of the IS (Infinite Stratos) anime confirmed on Sunday that an all-new video called IS Encore "Koi ni Kogareru Roku-Jūsō" (A Sextet Yearning for Love) will be released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on November 25. The announcement was first made at the "IS One-Off Festival" event on Sunday.
More details will be announced on the official website, but the organizers were already taking pre-orders for the release immediately after the festival ended. The Twitter account also announced that the IS One-Off Festival itself will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 26. (Pre-orders at the event site for both the IS One-Off Festival and IS Encore releases would include an event art poster with reproduced signatures of Yōko Hikasa, Yukana, Asami Shimoda, Kana Hanazawa, and Marina Inoue.)
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."
