Looks pretty good, the art is also good. Who is the new illustrator? The author is still the same, so I expect very good story. Music is also pretty good on the trailer.

Well I have to say I'm excited and about bloody time
New illustrator not too sure how I feel about that, but after checking out the vid when I saw Cecilia I thought of Tatenashi for some reason

I quite like the new illustrator, the preview pictures seems to add a bit more a serious tone to it. I always felt that the girls' faces didn't fit their personality. Looking at it now, aside from Ichika, the girls look very distinct from each other. Here we can see the difference in tone in the girls eyes, the small facial gestures fits their character, and also we can clearly see the difference in body composition (Houki suppose to be much more endowed in her breasts than the other girls, but Houki's size was comparable to Charlotte and Cecillia. I couldn't see the difference until now with the new illustrator, in my opinion it looks better.


By the way what is the name of the song on the trailer?

new Illustrator is CHOCO (Doujin manga Gothic Lolita Viandier, Marriage and Daguerreotype [NSFW all of em], designer for Ach and Yda for Busou Shinki) so yes there will be major changes to the IS designs as well if I recall things correctly but this is none the less good news

I added some new illustration 2 pages. Now, I have less than 4 months to figure out how to create an overlap of pictures in the text like how the wikias do this:

I don't know if it'll go TLR: Darkness. If that's the case, I'm leaving the building.

I thought the author lost the will to write IS and started a different LN? Nonetheless, glad he picked it up again.
Also, can someone explain why the author changed publishers?

Illustrations look decent.
The new logo reminded me of the L logo from Death Note.

Now, what will Chifuyu be in Volume 8?

I am incline to believe Chifuyu has a secret. The teenage girl resembling Chifuyu is either a lost sibling or a clone of Chifuyu. I think this will be the major plot of vol 8 or it could be a flashback volume of multiple experiences of Chifuyu's life.

Oh snap!

Major news for the Light Novels!!

Edit:
Okay, seems that everyone's already got the word. This article here will now serve as back up proof of the IS Light Novles resuming.

2nd Edit:
Although, it said that there's a DVD that'll come with the Limited Edition version of Vol. 8. My question is, what's going to be on that DVD?

All in all, I'm just glad that Izuru's back up and running on IS. For now that is...

But I think that hustle and tussle with Media Factory and the fanbase might have a negative effect on IS as a whole when Vol. 8 comes out.

If all goes well for the Vol. 8, especially the reprint of the Vol. 1-7 ,
There might be a chance that the first anime will repeated again with new looks.

so, the re is 75% chance the first anime will be shown again entitled " Infinite Stratos: Reboot", don with CHOCO's illustrations.

Then, 35% chance that they will go for the 2nd season don with CHOCO's illustrations.

So guys, give me your opinions on this theory.

What's the point if the story is the same?

I guess Kadokawa won't get their mittens on Infinite Stratos now that the series is owned by Overlap. (unless Kadokawa would use their influence, and buy that company and maybe buy Kyoto Animation)

Well, they can put in more details that were left out from before if they re-do the anime adaptation.

I read the Light Novels after watching the anime and what I found while reading the Light Novels, is that the anime left out a lot of details. Some of them being crucial for the characters.

For me, one of the vital details the anime left out, is Cecilia's background.

Even though they showed the part of Cecilia taking a shower after her match with Ichika, they didn't really portray her background. All the anime shows is her thoughts about Ichika... That's it.

When compared to the Light Novels, there's a lot more to it. It tells Cecilia's reason for being an IS pilot. What motivates her, what drives her. And why she has this "superiority complex"...

Virtually all of the things that were left out of the anime in that specific part.

Spoiler for Size:


The illustrator did Xenosaga 3, apparently.
Even though I do have to admit that IS isn't exactly the best story out there, the most important aspect it does well is that it sells. As for the anime, it does cut quite a bit of content, and I do wonder why they were cut off as well when they're not the 'must omit' kind of things.

I find that I'm slightly torn between the new illustration designs and the old one.
