ACF 2065: Sentai FIlmworks licenses INFINITE STRATOS 2
The high-flying fan favorite is back in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition: Infinite Stratos 2. This 12 episode follow up to the hugely successful series is directed by Yasuhito Kikuchi and features character designs by Kumi Horii (Student Council’s Discretion) with sound direction by Toshihiko Nakajima (Infinite Stratos, Devil May Cry) and music by Hikaru Nanase (Infinite Stratos, Canaan).
Synopsis: There are probably worse things that could have happened to Ichika Orimura besides being the first male on the planet capable of operating an Infinite Stratos powered exoskeleton. Then again, being the only guy in an academy filled with highly competitive, boy-crazed teenage girls equipped with giant robots and excessive amounts of combat training definitely qualifies as hazardous duty! It was bad enough becoming the focus of a rivalry between his childhood friends Lingyin and Houki, but when British and German pilots Cecillia and Laura joined in the melee he barely escaped with his dignity intact.
And when the new French “dude,” Charles, turned out to be a Charlotte, Ichika’s hands were filled with a roommate whose disguise slipped off at the least convenient times. But surely, by now, Ichika’s finally put all his girl troubles behind him, right? Oh don’t be ridiculous. None of the femme fatales in his life have canceled their conquest scenarios; there’s double trouble arriving in the form of the Sarashiki sisters; and the rest of the school is still waiting in line to take their shot as the mecha maiden mayhem continues in Infinite Stratos 2.
Infinite Stratos 2 will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2014.
