If you like Infinite Stratos you should watch Vandread because both shows are about a man (or men in Vandread's case) who is surrounded by women many of which are attracted to him. Also both shows are mecha anime that use CG animation for the mech battles.

There are no new stories, it has been said -- only old ones which are told in new and interesting ways. I'd say a comparison between Vandread and Infinite Stratos exemplifies this concept quite nicely.

A singular member of gender N is, against all odds, suddenly thrust into an encapsulated society which is dominated by gender Z. Said member of gender N, generally met with apprehension, loathing, skepticism, and/or the same sort of interest one might have in a foreign species, one or two members of gender Z give gender N's representative just enough of a chance to serve as a catalyst for others to do the same. At some point, all hell breaks loose, and ol' gender N is given the opportunity to prove that they're not brainless, walking genetalia.

The entire premise of both series hinges on the politics of gender, status, and rank. Everything is tied together with the standard mecha flair, and many popular moe archetypes are represented -- the high class ojou-sama, the militant feminist, the token foreigner, the heterochromic, etc.

Other than a somewhat heavy reliance on fanservice and CG (the latter of which is, at times, of questionable quality), I've little criticism for either show. Perhaps I'm just easy to please, but I felt that each series told its tale in a fashion that will keep the average viewer compelled enough to finish with a satisfied smile.

There is, of course, SOME divergence, and are plenty of differences in style and delivery to keep things fresh. Still, nothing here is new material. This is not, however, to say that the material presented is sub-par. It simply means that you've heard this story a thousand times. If you've watched one of these titles, you'll see the offerings of the other coming a mile away... and are very likely to enjoy the tale all over again.

Sekirei

Sekirei

Minato Sahashi was living a normal life; he had just failed his college entrance exam for a second year in a row, and lived a quiet life in a single's apartment. That is, until the busty Musubi fell from the sky on top of him! She is a Sekirei, one of 108 that are destined to fight each other until only one remains; and he or she will ascend to heaven with his or her chosen one known as an Ashikabi. Minato soon finds himself in the embrace of Musubi, becoming her Ashibaki - but his life will only become more complicated. Musubi isn't the last to claim Minato as her Ashibaki, and what's worse, plenty of other Sekirei and opponents stand in his way!

If you ever watched IS you have to watch Sekirei and Freezing. If you like that kinda of anime style then those two are good to watch before or after. Both animes has a good story, and both heroes fights for something. If you like romantic and fights you will be loved in Sekirei and Freezing. In both ways boys have a harem around him. If you want more "brain use" you can watch Sekirei because there the boy is not so stupid :P. But I liked both of them. Ofcourse Sekirei is 1 season longer, and thats why its good.

 

Just watch them both and i promise you will not regret.

Both anime have similar plots to  the relationship. In each case the "Man" is a unique indivdual who is the only one that can be present with the givin situation. In infinte stratos Ichika Orimura is the only man on earth who can pilot an IS system, while in Rosario Tsukune Aono; is the only male human attending the school. In both anime the relationships are very very blunt, but its worth a watch to get a chuckle in.

shizzmynizz shizzmynizz says...

Both anime have a male protagonist, surrounded by girls fighting over him. The feeling is similar in both animes, tho a bit different. The hillarious situations that Tsukune and Ichika get themselves into are always embarrassing and that's what makes them funny and makes you laugh. I recommend watching both animes if you like comedy and school-like anime.

Both are very similar anime with the concept of a male student entering a girls' school, or at least the female area. The male main character has the same powers as the girls for some apparent reason and a lot of the voice actors are the same.

Embriy Embriy says...

Both involve a clueless guy who has multiple girls swoning over him. Though he does not turn into a girl it is still a very action packed anime that i will watch before all others any day of the week.

animegirl animegirl says...

A single lucky seemingly useless (at the very least; boring, normal and/or plain) guy, gets into a school mainly comprised of beautiful girls that battle one another as part of their school days with super powers. Except IS is more sci-fi, and Maken-Ki is martial arts. Both male protagonists have a harem of girls after his affection without them having to lift a finger; you're typical harem anime.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

While Infinite Stratos has Charles and Maken-Ki! has Himegami as their lovable stand-out characters, both focus on what's most important: naturally charismatic (but not egotistical) love-blind mains and their harem; with antics around a plot-device (Mecha for IS and magical element thinggies for Maken-Ki!).

The plots aren't too important as both are fueled by genericness, combat and ecchi and are stupid enough to completely disregard much of anything sensible. Maken-Ki is by far the more perverted and shameless of the two but irregardless; if you can find enjoyment in the generic antics of either harem-based comedies, you will find some enjoyment with the other.
