One day, the bright red sun stopped shining, causing the "Breakdown Phenomenon"—the destruction of Arata Kasuga's town and the disappearance of the people inhabiting it. All, however, is not yet lost; by utilizing the magical grimoire given to him by his childhood friend and cousin Hijiri Kasuga, Arata's world gets artificially reconstructed.
In order to investigate the phenomenon, Lilith Asami appears before Arata, whose artificial world suddenly disintegrates. He is given two choices: hand over the book, or die. However, Arata chooses the third option—enrolling in the top-secret magic school Royal Biblia Academy, where six other magical users await him. Together with Lilith, these six form the Trinity Seven, the elite of the school who each bolster their own power and skill.
With the ambition to save Hijiri and the help of his newfound friends, Arata stops at nothing to prevent the destruction of his beloved hometown and to bring his best friend back.
A mediocre story, typical high-school setting, unnecessarily convoluted magic system, and lots and lots of fanservice. Trinity Seven would have been utterly average and forgettable if it wasn't for its characters.
The MC is, for once, not as dense as a brick, which already puts him ahead of majority of other harem leads. Arata is powerful and competent, so he doesn't have to be protected by the girls all the time. He's also unapologetically perverted, and it's quite refreshing to see him handle the inevitable ecchi situations with humor and honesty instead of stuttered apologies.
Most of the girls are rather likeable as well, from the prudish
and easily-embarrassed Lilith (a great target for Arata's teasing) to the mischievous and confident Levi, who developed a certain camaraderie with the MC and even goes along with his perverted jokes. Their interactions with Arata and each other are usually quite entertaining. Violent tsundere tendencies, while present in one or two characters, are thankfully toned down.
TL;DR Trinity Seven is an otherwise average harem carried by an awesome male lead and charming female characters.
I feel the best way I can sum it up would be in a pros and cons list:
- Good intro, I really liked the way the plot started.
- Arata: A Main Character who isn't as dense as lead, and was also hilarious. One thing that I realized I liked was that he wasn't as overpowered as any other anime would have made him.
- Aiko: One of the supporting characters in the Trinity Seven. There was something different about her from other female characters of any anime. She stood out to me the most (besides MC).
- Horrible plot development. Just so messy.I almost dropped it because
it bothered me that much.
- The amount of fan service. I do like a bit myself, but there comes a point where it's too much. Trinity Seven goes past that point.
- Every female character, other than Aiko.
- Character development was atrocious. Nothing was explained well. For example, what are any of the "processes"? What actual powers do the grimories have?
- Hijiri: To not include any spoilers, I won't describe much. As I watched, I just wanted to say what the actual F? If you decide to watch the anime, you'll understand.
I will say that this anime is on the lower end of my spectrum of choice. I think that the story would have been executed better in a longer season.
So ~ the end of this anime season is approaching and I find myself, once again, trying to come up with reasonable ratings for the various anime which I followed over the past months.

~ Plot ~
Very intriguing and at first slightly mysterious, the plot makes you keep wanting some more. There many times at which the episode ended and I just wanted to be able to continue watching. It seems fairly well thought out and the happenings all seem to fit into the world well. There are times when parts could be explained a little bit more clearly, such as
in the Library section, however I feel that this did not detract from my enjoyment of the anime. Each "section" feels like it brings everything a little bit closer together and it is very satisfying to watch. There are very few times where I felt there wasn't progress in the plot, and yet still a good amount of character development is achieved. The combination of these two make this anime a worthy watch.
Although I did not particularly enjoy either the OP or ED of this anime, I felt that the voices were VERY well suited to the characters, everything fits well and it certainly helps the ease with which one can watch this anime. I didn't find any issue with any background music that played in the anime, and wasn't distracted by any of it, but in the same regard, it didn't blow me away as anything incredible.
Personally, I enjoyed the visuals, I felt as if they were above average for an anime of this type and I was sometimes impressed by certain backgrounds or settings. You can tell that effort has been put in to make this anime look great, and it is another reason for which this anime is so enjoyable to watch. It is well detailed and there are few things about it which I would change if I had the choice. (You can tell they put lots of effort into the fanservice ;) )
One of the strong points about this anime, the characters are all very likable and well made. There is sufficient character development (for an anime of this length), that you feel for some of the characters and get to know them a little bit more than in some other anime. There is an incredible mix of characters, and each on adds to the feeling of the anime. They each have their traits and they all seem to function well together in terms of interaction. It doesn't feel like any of the characters make any of the others redundant. The way in which they can synergise their powers is clever and I feel that this was a slightly more unique aspect.
This is one of the anime which I have thoroughly enjoyed. There are several reasons for this, though obviously as I don't want to give any spoilers, I will not mention many of them. A lot of they enjoyment I feel, came from the very well written script and the interactions of the characters with each other and their relationships.
"This was more enjoyable to watch than the average anime, would recommend to others."
In my opinion, this anime is above par and one that I would recommend to people, even if they hadn't specifically mentioned the title themselves. There is a great mix of characters, their voices fit and the plot is great. This is one of the better anime out of the ones I have been watching this season (4th release date of 2014)
For those who are interested ~ Ranking Progression:
This is where I show the changes (if any) in my overall rating as the anime progressed, I review my ratings every 4 episodes ~ though if one does stand out for me I will also mention it.
We must know that the existence of an anime is to obtain a big amount of profit for the studio concerned, another main reason, anime is created to entertain us. And Trinity 7 did fairly well in entertaining their fans.
Well, the plot surely represents a combination of harem sensation with ecchi popping all out of the windows, that's because the main offers of Trinity Seven is a battle scene with a desirable fan service which awaited by almost of the genre fans. The only problem that suffers Trinity 7 is the orientation of its story that sometimes surely forgotten quickly and turns out to be
a little dull for non-genre fans, and there are some plot holes that perforate the story itself. Another alert for someone who doesn't like harem genre, Trinity 7 is obviously your dull watching list. But for the fans, is enough to satisfy your heart quickly.
Maybe Trinity 7's animation is not the best animation that exists in this world, but it's still able to bring the story feelings itself. People sometimes complaining about how they draw the characters eyes, but I sense a uniqueness in the animation. And another good news, it still can be watched. At least....
As for the sound section, sometimes I felt that the seiyuu is a bit of flat. Another problem is the Opening and Ending which sometimes wreck my ears (it's my honest opinion, okay...). It seems that the creators have not enough creativity to create some sounds that represent the story itself. More or less, the sound is pretty decent.
Well, character development surely a hard thing to be work on. Various anime almost fail in this section, also, the character is another main attraction for the watchers to hold on a series. Meanwhile, Trinity 7 did nothing in their development. They just have a typical character division, a simplistic division between the characters. We have Kasuga Arata, the main characters which have a unique personality (if you know what I mean...I remembered those hard times, seriously...). And the other girls that not needed to explained are another typical harem members lineup.
Since this is a Shounen+Harem+ECCHI anime, female viewers maybe think this is a big terrorist bomb that needs to be defused. However, male viewers maybe "attracted" by this kind of series. Well, since enjoyable is a relative thing, I myself still confused by this "see-saw" enjoyment. But I think, Ecchi fans still get their desirable fan service.... Overall, it's a decent series indeed.
Are you a bit perverted at times? Or are you just an old-fashioned romantic? Perhaps you're a bit of both! Then come inside and enjoy some of the finest ecchi romance anime. There's enough fan service here to cause nosebleeds...but also enough love and tenderness to warm our hearts.
It’s time to review the cute red-haired characters we love so much! Red hair is usually associated with fiery personalities, but is that true for these girls? Let's take a moment to look over some of the popular red haired girls in anime.
