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…

Naruto Shippuuden episode 388

I am not sure if I am going crazy, but did I see a new OP? If so; I like it. It is very nice. The one thing that isn’t very nice is that they are obviously trying very hard to drag this out. They are filling the episodes with recaps and flashback scenes in order to gain the most out of this show.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 388 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.02_[2014.11.29_23.21.26]It pisses me off. Stop destroying the anime and just follow the manga. This episode was not in the manga. The manga had a decent ending that I could be satisfied with. There were no recaps. It was straight to the point. That is what I want to see from the anime. Just get to it already. Stop focussing on the past and focus on the matter at hand.

Why? Why focus on Gaara again? We have been over this until we were blew in the face. We know everything there is to know about Gaara. How he was as a boy, how he became host to the One Tail, Shukaku, how Naruto and he became friends… We know it. Stop focussing on things we have seen before and just show us what happens next!

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.
