Genre: Mecha, harem, sci-fi
And onto the review:
Well yes, I think there was actually a plot, sort of.
So the anime is based around the fact that our MC, a guy, can pilot an Infinite Stratos (exoskeleton mecha fighting robot thing) that previously only girls were able to pilot. This results in our main character being placed in a school for learning how to fight with the IS filled with girls, generic harem ensues.
Gradually throughout the anime the main character Ichika Orimura gains a gathering of girls who are all infatuated with him, yet Ichika is an absolute bonehead and doesn't realize any of this, where have we seen that before?
So basically stuff happens in the school with robots and fighting and generic harem stuff, and then occasionally the plot decides to peek its head out and a big robot enemy or something will appear.
The Ending (Spoilers yo)
So at the end there's a big enemy and they all work together to defeat it, surprise surprise. However the thing that did surprise me was how horrible and retarded that battle was. While the other fight scenes in this anime have been pretty good, this grand finale was actually horrible. So then after the fight scene there's some plot wrap up that seemed too rushed. Although it seems that Ichika finally chooses a girl which was surprising given how oblivious he was.
To Sum Up
Yeah, it was a good anime, I enjoyed watching it and even though the ending was yet another let down for the season, it wasn't nearly as bad as any of the other endings that season provided. If you like mecha and robots fighting, then sure check it out, as long as you don't mind retard harem romance with the age old guy-really-popular-for-no-given-reason (On that note however I can see that there is somewhat of a reason to like this guy, being the only guy in the school.). That said, if you like harem as well, then definitely check it out, it's rather funny for its genre.
P.S. Favorite girl? Mine was Charlotte.
