Nice to meet you, everyone.

I'm an avid IS fan and just found this site while surfing the 'net.

It looks like lots of info regarding IS was posted, but I find some of it slightly misinterpreted...

Would it be Ok for me to write up somewhat detailed description of this novel? (such as story set-up stuff and etc)
(I don't mean the translation of the novel, although I could also do that if wanted...)


P.S.

Oh, the author was hospitalized? So that's why there's no news of Vol.6 after 4 months of break. New vol. usually came out every 2~3 months until Vol.5.

I thought the author was just busy with IS being made into Anime.

A good summary of the novels would be appreciated here, and it would help to give those of us who don't have the novel know what's coming up.

It's been over 11 years since I've been in US to study... So please understand if my English skill has deteriorated considerably. (typo and all)

Okay, here it is. a set of info that might help you understand the story better.

Spoiler for Basic understanding of IS world:




And here is the first 5 pages of Vol.1, roughly translated.

Not much from the latter part, but damn... all that delicious data about the IS and their functions...

Thanks to zephyr325, everyone should have an excellent idea of what this series is about now, and hopefully even more interested than before.

So this is the updated staff list


Quote:
Moonphase Diary
> シリーズ構成・脚本:志茂文彦
> 脚本:冨岡淳広、北条千夏
> キャラクターデザイン・総作画監督:倉嶋丈康
> メカニックデザイン:高倉武史
> CGIアニメーション監督:井ノ元英二
> 美術監督:吉原俊一郎(美峰)
> 美術設定:塩澤良憲(美峰)
> 色彩設計:中山久美子
> 撮影監督:荒幡和也
> 編集:木村佳史子
> 音響監督:三間雅文、中嶋聡彦
> 音響制作:テクノサウンド
> 音楽:七瀬光
> 音楽制作:ランティス[/URL]
So in addition to Kikuchi as director as mentioned before, we also get Takakura for Mecha Design, Yoshihara as Art Director, Nakayama for Color Design, Mima for Sound Director, and most importantly Techno Sound for Sound Effects back from the Macross F movie. The rest of the staff is pretty stellar too. Nakajima from Kurau and Rideback who's Co-Sound Director with Mima; Nanase and Lantis for Music and Music Production etc.

January can't come soon enough.

For the opening theme, why they imagine a artist (from Lantis) to perform the IS opening theme ?

And the character reaction faces in the main site is just a plain delight to see, along with the news they will have an Infinite Stratos pinup on Megami

The OP isn't, since it's by Ali Project; the ED on the other hand is from Faylan, who is a Lantis exclusive artist (so far). Source.

So you're half right =P.

Here is some more info about IS mechanic.


Spoiler for More about IS!:



The official terminology for Add-on equipment for IS is 'Equalizer.

My next posting is going to be about the characters.
(I'm currently reading the novel once more to collect info - which seems to be scattered throughout the novel.)

More awesome info as always, also LOL at explanation for advanced weaponry not being available in conventional platforms, something lacking in a lot of Robot Shows. The entire IS system reminds me of Zoid Cores for some reason...

Also, the Official Site just updated with Character Profiles.

Before that info was revealed, I was thinking "I really, really, really hope the OP is not by Ali Project"

And it is...damn. At least ED by Faylan is good news.

A question for you zephyr, by low immunity to opposite sex, what does that mean?

They get charmed easily by the male lead (unintentionally) since they don't really deal with men most of the time.
