We've seen some glimpses of the upcoming Infinite Stratos follow-up, Infinite Stratos 2, which sees Yasuhito Kikuchi (Macross Frontier, Busou Shinki) returning to direct for 8-Bit. Now the official website has been updated to reflect a debut scheduled for fall.
Infinite Stratos 2 sees Zone of the Enders' Kumi Horii joining the staff on character designs. Busou Shinki's CHOCO, AKA Kōichi Mugitani, joins Takeshi Takakura (Appleseed CG movies, Planetes) on mechanical designs, while Hikaru Nanase returns to score the anime. Returning cast includes Kouki Uchiyama as Ichika Orimura, Yōko Hikasa as Houki Shinonono, Yukana as Cecilia Alcott, Asami Shimoda as Lin Yin Fang, Kana Hanazawa as Charles Dunois, and Marina Inoue as Laura Bodewig.
The anime's site also recently posted a recap for the recent IS All-Night Festival event, which is where we first got a promo for the second season.
