What do people have against it? It was unremarkable, but pretty consistently funny and cute, and had decent production values, I would absolutely not have minded a few more seasons.

People who didn't read the LN before season 2 don't understand.

Not enough fanservice/ no nipples. If I'm watching a battle Harem, I'm watching it for my dick, not for anything else. So it had better give me JoM.

It wasn't Ender's Game, and I was kinda hoping it would be the harem version of that

That's a fair reason if that's why you're
watching.

Ecchi is for the most part too vanilla for me to get off to, but I DO enjoy battle harems a lot for the frequent comedy focus and lots and lots of those cute little interactions and girls getting flustered and going kyaaaa.

Kind of like sitcoms.

The show itself is fun but nothing spectacular.
It was massively popular and lots of other shows borrowed heavily from it, so now the entire thing feels incredibly tired and cliche, even (or especially) the parts of it that felt relatively fresh at first.
Because the show was so initially popular it has become the first thing people think of when they think of [annoying harem trope].
The second season wasn't very well liked which burnt a lot of good will with casual fans of the show.
The LN has mostly gone nowhere and apparently the author is a bit of a cock, which has burned almost all good will with more devoted fans.
The girl that gets the most focus is easily the least popular one.
Some people just dislike harems on principal.

I get what you're saying, but once you've watched a lot of anime everything does look samey, but despite that; I still do find infinite stratos quite entertaining even though I watched it after a lot of its derivatives because it had good execution of those cliches; moreso than its derivatives.

I get you senpai. Glad we can agree. And I feel like I;S didn't even quite have enough "kyaaa" moments, since I can get off to even the most vanilla, censored "kyaa" enf moment.

the premise was retarded. "women are stronger then man because they happen to be able to pilot couple robots and man cant."

i dont mind man being presented as weaker sex but at least make it logical.

I really enjoy in general (like it in other shows too; like i laughed my ass off at the end of haganai) when the MC is oblivious (legitimately or pretending both fine) and the girls get all blushy and angry, and there sure was a hell of a lot of that in stratos.

It was good
if you remove the MC
this is a better version of it
with more assertive protagonist and heroines
and more ecchi scenes

S1 was fine.

S2 is legitimately the worst anime I've ever completed. Ratio of fanservice to everything else was way off, the fanservice itself was awful, what passed for "plot" was shoved into maybe 3 episodes. I have no idea how I managed to finish it.

The entire series got bogged down by it's inexcusably idiotic MC, and continually shifting focus away from the girls the fans liked the most. A classic example of lightning in a bottle and wasted potential.

While the deluge of sci-fi harems popping up nowadays has worn out the welcome of most, overall, most of them execute the premise at least somewhat more competently than IS.

I swear I'm convinced the MC of this show is actually gay, due to how repellent of breasts he is. Most harem MCs, even if autistic, show an interest in women.

Literally too much girls. You have to take screen time of some of them and focus on the most popular but then, fans of the least popular will drop it. Also, no good comedy or battles so non-haremfags can watch it too.

This. Sheeky Forums actually loves this show; it's just that the crossboarding redditor/tumblrina haters are louder and work in shifts. Same with SAO.
