Trinity Seven episode 03

So we finally got a clear picture of what we can expect from Trinity Seven. We already knew what it was about and had a rough idea of what we could expect, but now we know for sure. We finally know what drives this story.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.50_[2014.10.22_23.47.56]Despite the fact that I dislike the way they started this episode (as though nothing had happened last week, followed up by the actual story of what happened), I still find it very interesting. I also find that other girl, Yui, quite interesting. She seems to have an interesting ability. I cannot help but be a little curious, you know?

I won’t even discuss those hot springs and beach scenes for too long. What’s the point? The protagonist is a straightforward pervert that will always say what’s on his mind without thinking things through. When you combine all of that with a group of cute girls… Well, the result is pretty darn obvious if you look at it objectively.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.56_[2014.10.22_23.48.07]But no, Arata takes the spotlight again after he officially became a mage. He accessed the archives, chose a “thema”, and actually entered this so-called “magus-mode”. I am not sure if I understood this correctly, but I am pretty sure that a mage can only research one “thema” and can therefor only use one type of magic. It seems that that doesn’t apply to our protagonist. He can chose whatever “thema” he wants and utilize whatever type of magic he wants. I don’t know if there’s a limit or anything like that, but I’m guessing he’s going to be copying the magic of the Trinity Seven members, which would be why he needs to meet all seven of them.

Amagi Brilliant Park episode 03

I know that this has been a thing since the beginning, but I cannot get over how annoying Seiya can be. He thinks of himself as some kind of god. Everything he does is great, everything he wears makes him look great and in his mind there’s no one out there as good as he is. The guy needs a reality check…

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 03 [9F3D6650].mkv_snapshot_04.43_[2014.10.18_22.58.32]Also, those fights with Moffle are getting a little old, although I have a feeling that they will be occurring in future episodes as well. The pattern is always the same, isn’t it? Seiya implements one of his ideas, Moffle comes in angry and starts swinging his fists (or should I say paws?) at Seiya and they both end up getting shot by Isuzu. The first few times were funny, just don’t make it a regular thing.

Is Seiya doing it wrong? Don’t you dare to even think that, fool. He came up with the idea to have all the girls do a promotional video in their bikinis. That alone makes him a great manager in my book. He even came up with an ingenuous plan to make sure that people actually watched that video. What more could you possibly want?

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 03 [9F3D6650].mkv_snapshot_21.42_[2014.10.18_22.59.09]I also could not help but notice that Isuzu is starting to get a little bit nervous around Seiya. Maybe he finally got through to her? It’s kind of obvious that she has a school girl crush on him, but the fact that she’s different than other girls makes it all the more interesting. How in the world will that even work out? That’s what I want to know.

And finally, I have to once again focus on the fact that they need half a million visitors a day before their deadline. During this episode they didn’t even have five hundred. I know that’s because the park is still closed because of renovations and whatnot, but come on… that’s just bad. They really need to speed things up a little.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 382

Here we go again. I hate it how things continue to go back and forth here. At one point Naruto’s strong and confident, the other he’s weak and helpless. That’ll be over soon enough though. I think the series will end after the winter.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 382 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.29_[2014.10.18_22.57.59]It annoyed me a little how confident Sasuke was when he materialized Sasano’o. Only last week did he look upon Naruto’s power with a disturbed look on his face. Now he thinks he can stand beside him as his superior even though he’s using Juugo’s cursed seal powers because he himself can’t use nature energy. Cocky fool. I really do hope he dies in the manga. I hope that from the bottom of my heart.

Other than the fact that I have always disliked Sasuke, I think that Naruto will always come out on top. He has the kind of personality that is always looking for answers in order to save himself and his friends. He and he alone can get through to Obito and stop him from enslaving everyone. Sasuke just adds oil onto the fire.

Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu.

It sounded bad when I read about it and it turned out to be so much worse when I actually saw it. I honestly cannot believe that this actually exists… This is ridiculous.

Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu.The artwork looks alright. The characters look pretty decent and I have no real complaints. It could use a bit more work on the details, but other than that…

The story is what ruins it for me. This story is just the worst. Who cares about saving the twin tail hairstyle? I don’t. I certainly don’t want to watch a teenage boy transform into a female loli with two or three meter long hair in order to fight off “evil”.

This story is completely pointless, it is ridiculous, it is uninteresting and it is really weird. I honestly cannot recommend this. In fact, I have no idea to whom I could recommend this

Plot Summary: Sōji is an ordinary high school student with an extraordinary love for pig tails (or “twin tails”). One day a mysterious girl from another universe named Thouars appears in front of him. At the exact same time, monsters begin attacking the city where Sōji lives, declaring they will drain the world’s energy in the name of the Twintails. Sōji receives a powerful armor from Thouars called “Tail Gear” which transforms him into a female Twintail warrior named Tail Red.

Trinity Seven episode 02

I’ll have to admit that I’m kind of taking a risk with this one. I wasn’t actually planning to write about Trinity Seven, but I cannot help but like the “ecchiness” of it all. We’ll just have to see for ourselves if the story is still any good in a few weeks’ time.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.02_[2014.10.15_23.03.43]So Arata, the protagonist, is to become a demon lord, right? I’ve seen plenty of anime in my lifetime and I can honestly say that that’s a bad thing. Usually those kinds of characters end up being observed or killed on the spot. This isn’t really like that. Although he is being observed, he is also seen as some kind of almighty hero that could end up saving lives. He already has a line-up of girls that are interested in him and there doesn’t really seem to be an organisation out there that wants to use him somehow (although the school itself could be seen as an organisation that wants to use his abilities in the end).

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.10_[2014.10.15_23.04.13]I honestly don’t mind if all the episodes are like this one. Sure, getting stick in some room with three girls that really want to pee is a bit odd, but it put a smile on my face nonetheless. That is just how I see Trinity Seven; a quest to find the protagonist’s old world whilst he enjoys the company of those girls and the situations that they find themselves in from time to time.

After all of this, am I still interested in the next episode? Yes I am. We caught a glimpse of Arata’s unbalanced power and two new girls that want to kill him because of it. How this will end is obvious; the grim moiré will probably end up protecting its master and Arata will end up befriending those two girls after their failed attempt to kill him.
