Viewers of Infinite Stratos have tepidly greeted the arrival of yet another “generic harem anime” so replete with the staid elements of the genre that it is being derided as little more than a prolonged exercise in cutting-and-pasting elements from other series into one hopelessly bland whole.

The show is adapted from a light novel/manga series by Media Factory, a company with a name which now seems bitterly prophetic in light of the reception the title is garnering:

“Britain has for many years reigned supreme as the nation with the worst cuisine in the world” – truer words never spoken.

Whatever can be said for the anime itself, the verdicts being delivered on its total lack of originality are damning – “This is the first time I’ve seen an anime where every single element is something we’ve seen somewhere before – is there any originality to this anime at all?”
