Trinity Seven episode 12

A very disturbing final episode. Yes, I enjoyed Trinity Seven for the last few months, but I will not be waiting for a second season. I think its fine like this. It was very nice and very funny, but the story was lacking a little bit.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.21_[2014.12.27_00.01.37]This was supposed to be the final battle. A battle where the protagonist was supposed to go all-out in order to save his previous friend and where everything would get nearly destroyed. I thought it was going to be this epic, all-out fighting where everyone had to use their ultimate skill in order to win the battle. I don’t even know what happened. The protagonist just powered up a little, executed his thema and attacked only once from what I could tell. It was enough to beat Hijiri and make her disappear again so that he can once again start his journey.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.26_[2014.12.27_00.01.49]It was a weird ending. You could really tell that they were trying to end things with a cliff-hanger, thereby giving us the impression that they were planning (or perhaps already working on) a second season. I won’t actually be waiting for it. I think Trinity Seven ended for me and that’s that. None of my wishes really came true and I feel as though the story was really lacking in quite a lot of places. I would only recommend this to those that just want to laugh and watch a little bit of ecchi anime. This just isn’t for storyline-fanatics.

Trinity Seven episode 11

You know, the problem with Trinity Seven is that the fights are always so ridiculously childish. The characters are joking around and sometimes they don’t even bother attacking seriously. That’s what it looks like to me.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.06_[2014.12.17_23.19.19]This episode is a good example of that. Levi was matched against an opponent whose “Thema” is the same as hers. They both are researching the same thing and so you’d think they’d be evenly matched. If that were even remotely true than Levi wouldn’t have to resort to such ridiculous tactics. It really looked like she was just messing around. She hid a lot, faked attacks by claiming it was something else and tried to fool her opponent with lies. All of this was done in a sort of “funny” way in order to try and make us laugh, no doubt. That failed in my case.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2014.12.17_23.19.33]It was pretty hard to watch. Levi is still my favourite, but I want to see her fight seriously. Stop messing around with ninja nonsense and attack using real attacks. Her speed and illusions are cool and quite handy, but the way she follows up is stupid. I saw her fight seriously once and that was definitely worth watching.

Anyway, the final episode is up next and I am pretty sure that Arata will resolve everything by talking and showing his “compassionate” side to Hijiri in order to bring her over to his side. We all know what is going to happen. Trinity Seven has probably given us one or two unexpected twists during the past few months. That’s about it.

Trinity Seven episode 10

I suppose I could consider this episode somewhat different from the rest… I could, but I won’t. How different was it, really? It still contained small portions of fan service, comedy and a somewhat predictable twist.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.19_[2014.12.10_23.05.22]So Arata ascended from Demon Lord Candidate to an actual Demon Lord. Good for him! His outfit changed as well as his appearance. His hair turned white, which made me think about Tokyo Ghouls, and he has these lines across his cheek which made him look like a little badass. I definitely like what I saw, even though if it was for a short duration. It would’ve been a bit more exciting to see more and if it took more than a simple slap to make him turn back to his old self, but hey… beggars can’t be choosers. I’m just happy that I got to see something interesting.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.11_[2014.12.10_23.05.47]I also noticed that Mira, the show’s tsundere, has finally given in to Arata’s charms, whatever they are. She has fully acknowledged him as a potential partner and is now actually calling him by his name instead of “the impure one”, although I must say that I definitely like the latter. His harem has made some progress once again.

But yeah, spending a few months looking for a character that’s dear to the protagonist, only to find out that she’s on the opposite team… That sucks! Watch; she’s bad now, but, just like that grim moiré from last week, Arata will beat her and make her switch sides. Either that or she’s consumed by evil and Arata has to set her free. Probably something as standard as that.

Trinity Seven episode 09

Okay. End it. I can already see how this is going to end. Say whatever you want, but this really is quite typical. A sudden power boost trigged by rage that will eventually defeat all enemies and save the protagonist just in time before he can hurt himself.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.36_[2014.12.03_23.14.15]I’m at least very happy that Arata is finally starting to get cosy with Mira. She has been on guard every time that guy is close, but even she is now starting to lower her defences. Mira, too, realized that Arata is not some kind of perverted demon lord that wishes to enslave the female sex in order to create the ultimate harem. He can be trusted and you can rely on him from time to time. The guy is just painfully honest, which is a huge flaw for any man. That’s the first thing you learn when you are in a relationship; honesty is a dangerous thing.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.07_[2014.12.03_23.14.49]So Arata didn’t quite make to Hijiri yet. Just another grim moiré that took on the appearance of Hijiri in order to kill all the girls and keep Arata for itself. That’s all the story needed; a perverted magical item that was looking for a toy to play with. These are the things that I should’ve seen coming. They fit perfectly into this crazy story.

Anyway, that grim moiré was going to kill Mira and forced Arata to go nuts. He got so angry that he transformed and, get ready for an old cliché, awaked the powers within him. Yeah. The guy transformed into something that I could actually call a demon lord candidate and is well on his way to becoming a monster. We might actually get to see some action next week…

Trinity Seven episode 08

What an odd episode. Yes, there was progress and yes I learned quite a bit more about the characters, but at the same time it feels as though very little happened. This is probably just me overthinking things again though.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.51_[2014.11.26_22.39.01]Arata has become more serious than ever about magic. He is asking questions, practicing until he drops and he doesn’t joke as much anymore. That being said, why does it feel as though very little of that actually happened? I did not see him train. I did not see him learn new things. I basically saw the same thing that I’ve been seeing since the beginning; the protagonist getting into trouble by getting a bit too close to the girls even though sometimes it isn’t his fault. What happened to the things he had learned? Why skip over something so important?

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.55_[2014.11.26_22.35.48]I just don’t understand it. What is the point of this episode? The only scene that I might actually try to remember was when Lilith lost the top part of her bikini and Arata, whom happened to be around again, got a nice eyeful of those busty melons of her, causing Lilith to go berserk and blast him away again. This stuff has pretty much become a routine.

At least the next episode seems to be quite interesting. It seems that Arata, thanks to the headmaster’s teleportation, finally found Hijiri again. Have they arrived in another world? Or did Hijiri simply vanish to another part of the same world? I feel as though we’re about to get a lot of answers to our many questions during the next episode.

Trinity Seven episode 07

A very predictable, but enjoyable episode this turned out to be. It finally seems that there is a point to this story. It’s not about the protagonist and his quest to find and rescue his friend and to create the perfect harem for himself.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.47_[2014.11.19_22.31.19]So that busty blonde invaded the school all on her own in order to get even stronger. She used her lewd body to distract the headmaster in order to beat him, after which the headmaster, quite obviously, pretended to be defeated by her when he caught a little glimpse of her breasts. The sad part is that I cannot blame him. My jaw would’ve probably detached itself from my head in order to fall on the floor (in the anime world, of course). Still, I cannot accept the fact that that man did so little in order to ensure the safety of his students. He basically gave up to let Arata do all the work.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.15_[2014.11.19_22.31.43]Obviously, Arata needs to get stronger fast. He took control of Lieselotte’s magic (or at least that which made her a demon lord candidate) and is now on his way to become one of the strongest mages around. He couldn’t have done it without Sora, his grim moiré, though. Not at all surprising that she materialized into a teenage girl. Stuff like that is obvious in these stories.

Not only does Arata need to get stronger in order to find Hijiri, his friend, but he needs to master that time control magic in order to bring back Lieselotte. He always needs to get stronger in order to fight off the evil mages that are currently making their way to that school of his. Finally, a clear goal. Things should get better from here on out.

Trinity Seven episode 06

Quite the hectic episode. I also found it rather difficult to follow because certain things did not make sense or seemed rather unnecessary. All in all not a bad episode though. My interest in that headmaster has definitely grown.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.13_[2014.11.12_23.42.34]So Lieselotte, the seventh and final member of the Trinity Seven group, revealed herself last week and made it quite clear where she stands. She wants power and knowledge, which are really the same thing, and doesn’t mind going to extreme lengths to obtain it. It doesn’t bother her to be known as a dark mage. She just seems to go through anyone that stands in her way. I like that. I don’t care what people think about that character. I’ve seen remarks about the way she is dressed and the way she talks, but I like that character quite a lot.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.50_[2014.11.12_23.43.06]Also, I finally have a favourite character on the show. Levi is my number one. The way she talks is awesome, her ninja way is cool, her “Magus Mode” outfit is very friendly on the eyes and she doesn’t go head-on for the protagonist like all the others characters. She is definitely the greatest character on this show.

Anyway, I still cannot accept that Lieselotte stole Arata’s power like that. What’s was the point of it all? I wouldn’t mind if that headmaster showed us what he’s capable of and took care of Lieselotte. Just capture her. She launched a full-scale attack on the school so I don’t think she’ll be walking away as though it never happened.

Trinity Seven episode 05

Another interesting (and satisfying) way to start off an episode. Trinity Seven is quite good at those. It is also one of the many usable examples of why Japanese people should use as little English as possible in anime. That “come on” was pretty much the only reason why I laughed at that scene.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.59_[2014.11.05_23.19.56]So the harem is getting to its climax, huh? Six of the seven girls have already been assembled and are now fighting over Arata. The amount of fan service in this episode was enough to make you feel quite queasy, but I got past that and saw how loli’s and busty mages in bloomers were going nuts during P.E. in order to catch that guy’s attention. It just goes to show that the female sex is interesting in guys with either power or money or both, seeing as money and power are pretty much the same thing. They would all lose interest if he were to lose that grim moiré of his.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.10_[2014.11.05_23.20.27]It came as no surprise to me that they finally introduced the seventh and final member of the so-called Trinity seven. Neither was it a surprise that Selina and the seventh member were connected somehow. They focussed so much on Selina that there had to be something to it. Why else bring in a character like that in pretty much every episode?

I must say that I find Lieselotte, the seventh member of the Trinity Seven, quite interesting. She is daring, bold and powerful, seeing as she, too, is one of those demon lord candidates by stumbling upon some kind of ancient magic. This puts a nice spin on the story instead of continuing that pointless harem that Arata has got going right now.
