Both animes to be available on digital outlets soon, home video release to follow next year.
Many people think that lawyers live in a separate reality, but at one private law school in Tokyo that may literally be true. For example, when would-be law student Banri Tada tumbled off a bridge, he learned more than just that legal eagles can’t fly. Or, to be more accurate, he unlearned everything, as the accident not only left him with retrograde amnesia, but also split a portion of his psyche into a separate being that carries all of his memories prior to graduating high school! And the disgruntled spirit now following Banri around isn’t the school’s only stalker. Banri’s friend Mitsuo is also being pursued. In Mitsuo’s case, though, it’s a prior commitment. The lovely Kouko Kaga is relentlessly hounding him, determined to hold him to a childhood agreement to eventually wed. And if you think those characters are out of order, the jury’s still out on Nijigen-kun, who’s given up on the 3D world and reverted to 2D! But don’t rush to judgment just yet! Join in a paper chase through some very uncivil actions and exposed legal briefs and arrive at your own verdict in GOLDEN TIME! (Synopsis from Sentai Filmworks press release)
Golden Time is an anime adaptation of a is a Japanese light novel series written by Yuyuko Takemiya, who also written Toradora! light novel series, with illustrations by Eeji Komatsu. The novel is being serialized on ASCII Media Work’s Dengki Bunko Magazine since September 2010, and currently has 10 volumes.
The anime adaptation is directed by Nodame Cantabile Paris & Finale director Chiaki Kon, while Full Metal Panic! series scriptwriter Fumihiko Shimo handled the script composition, and Ikki Tousen character designer Shinya Hasegawa also handles the series designs. It is produced by J.C. Staff, and expected to have 12 episodes.
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! (Synopsis from Sentai Filmworks press release)
Infinite Stratos 2 is a follow-up of the 2011 anime adaptation of the light novel series by Izuru Yumizuru.
