Sentai Filmworks is hot on the heels of fall anime with another acquisition, Infinite Stratos 2. The 12-episode series will be available digitally soon through select outlets, with a home video release to follow in 2014.
Infinite Stratos 2 features Yasuhito Kikuchi returning as director at 8-Bit, with Kumi Horii (Student Council's Discretion) on character designs.
The synopsis from Sentai's press release:
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!
