Japan has been able to create an advanced exoskeleton which is so powerful that a treaty was signed, banning it from being used in wars. These exoskeletons are Infinite Stratos and can only have women pilots. But turns out there is a guy who can man these machines. Ichika Orimura is a teenager who has this ability. So yes, he has to attend the Infinite Stratos Academy, which is obviously a female-only academy, in order to train and become an Infinite Stratos Pilot. The homeroom teacher at this academy is Ichika’s older sister, the legendary Chifuya Orimura. If you are looking for anime with similar plots or style, then we’ve got you covered.

5. Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut (2016)
‘Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut’ is pretty similar to ‘Infinite Stratos’. This one also has lots of mecha fights. This anime again has an obvious build up to a harem as in ‘Infinite Stratos’. There are multiple pretty female characters in this show, who all start falling for the male lead. Also, we have a male lead who gets into a female-dominated institution. The animation and soundtrack of this anime are quite good. The plot, like ‘Infinite Stratos’, is kind of lackluster but delivers well on the harem and ecchi front.
The show focuses on Drag-Rides which are ancient mechas that have been excavated from different locations on Earth. The pilots of these mechas are known as Drag-Knights. Lux, the male lead, is a former prince of an empire, Arcadia. One day he ends up accidentally walking into a female bathing area of a dormitory. He sees Lisesharte, the new princess of the kingdom, naked. She challenges him to a drag-ride duel. There’s an all-female academy which trains the royals to become drag-knights and guess who ends up attending this all female school? It is Lux! He joins the academy after his duel with Lisesharte. The anime has a total of 12 episodes with each episode being 23 minutes in length.
