Naruto Shippuuden episode 383

I find this episode quite amusing for one simple reason; the five Kage showed up after being absent for quite some time. They showed up and turned out to be quite useless, but that was to be expected. The five of them couldn’t do a damned thing against Madara, so what chance do they have against Obito and the Ten Tails?

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 383 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.12_[2014.10.25_23.49.24]The big chiefs show up and the new generation has to clean up their mess once again. Isn’t that how it’s always been? They manage things and at one point things south, at which point the new generation gets to take over and do the dirty work. That’ll end with Naruto if all goes as he planned. He’s certainly doing his best to ensure that all of his friends live to see that day.

Is it annoying that Obito withstood that combined attack from Naruto and Sasuke? Yes. Is it even more annoying that they’re both nearly rendered incapable of fighting any further? Definitely. But what will take the cake is how Naruto will gain yet another boost in power (probably his 11.209th boost). That much is certain.

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.

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.

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.

Trinity Seven

Another anime by one of the better studios. I do have some hope for this, but I feel as though the story will be the weak link here. I am trying to figure out how they are going to approach this.

Trinity SevenThe artwork isn’t at all bad. In fact, it’s quite nice. The characters look good, it is pretty detailed and I really loved some of the expressions on Lilith’s face.

As I said earlier; the story is what worries me. I got me interested for now, but even I must admit that it isn’t anything special. Stories like these either turn out very predictable or completely pointless. So yeah, I am hoping that this is one those rare golden nuggets.

I laughed and I cheered a little. It may look promising now, but it will depend on how the story unfolds from here on out. It promises to be very funny, quite romantic and filled to the brim with magical action. I therefor advise you to check out the first episode.

Plot Summary: Everyday is a normal day in the small town where Kasuga Arata lives; however, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and following it, a magician appears before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon which destroyed the town where he lives. Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a Grimoire that his childhood friend had left. Just what is the purpose of the magician coming to the town? What will he do with the Grimoire’s keepsake?
