Lau- “Stop trying to guess my gender! IT MAKES ME ANGRY!”
What?! We are at the end! Yes, indeed the end of this random yet entertaining series, well if you have been wondering where I have been lately? Let’s just say my computer decided it wanted a vacation from the world of anime and internet related fun. It was having some power issues but hopefully it can remain stable enough to get my other episode reviews out. Well here we go! Enjoy the final review for Sacred Seven.
Plot starts back with Kenmi attacking Knight as he snatches Lau and runs away. Alma in the meantime gains a new transformation and fights Kenmi, defeating him for now. But Kenmi uses his evil Darkstone and forces it into Lau’s chest causing a transformation that feeds on Lau’s desires to kill. Knight also gains a new transformation thanks to Aoi’s magical powers, together with Alma they use their new powers to help Lau and save the day.
Alma- “Why are you crying?!” Ruri- “I didn’t get any hotsprings or shower episodes!”
Things roll right out to the action scenes as we skip the OP song with Kenmi grabbing Lau and breaking through walls to escape. Kenmi has plans to basically eat everything and everyone with any sacred power to increase his own, damn this dude’s so greedy! Get your own powers…oh wait never mind. While Knight and Kenmi play tag on the roof, Alma gains a new transformation, thanks to Ruri or should he thank himself? I have no idea! I blame some power of love or “growing” up. With his new powers Alma rushes to help Lau and Knight.
Alma- “Remember children, when fighting giant monsters that want to eat your face, wear your goggles…”
Kenmi’s testing his new company product! The loli/shota shield works great against monster fights.
Sadly Alma arrives a bit late only to see Knight’s power get absorbed by Kenmi who drops him from the air. Lau watches helplessly as Knight falls through the lab hitting the ground. This event suddenly triggers Lau’s first Darkstone transformation into some odd frog looking mecha suit… Yeah, I don’t even know what that thing was but it looked really lame… In the meantime Aoi wakes up from her sleep and finds Hellbrick and tells him she has a special mission ahead of her. Makoto finds her after running away from SP because yes he sucks at being a mecha pilot! He always finds a way to trash it during every episode.
Poor Lau having the worst day ever! Getting thrown around like a doll and growing random horns!
FROG POWER SUIT! Wait what is this pedo bear armor?
The fight between Alma and Kenmi continues to rage on as Kenmi’s powers increases as his body actually changes into some odd dragon-snake looking monster. Alma suddenly starts to run laps around the mountain to build up his speed. After he dodges one of Kenmi’s new beam attacks Alma rushes in for the final kill shot! He turns one of his hands into a small drill, yes I know they stole this attack from another popular series *cough*TTGL*cough* and Alma “defeats” Kenmi. Well he did defeat all the armor right off Kenmi but he’s still somewhat alive after taking a drill to the chest. He just staggers around for a bit, shocked that he was defeated so easily. Before Kenmi kicks the bucket for good, he suddenly grabs onto Lau and jumps into the hole he created earlier. As they fall together he removes his own crystal from his chest and forces it inside Lau’s chest, which causes him to transform into a large pyramid crystal. This new transformation seems to be feeding off Lau’s desire to kill everyone. Yes Lau has a few mental issues to work out later with Knight. Alma flies off to help and while he does his thing to calm Lau down, Knight is approached by Aoi, who gives him one of her crystals to help him transform into a white version of his previous suit complete with angel like wings. With this new power up from Aoi, Knight and Alma are forced to work together to free Lau and save the world! Well, that small part of the world anyway.
Alma- “Wow you look so dumb, Kenmi!” Kenmi- “Psshhh… you’re the one with the safety helmet…”
Alma-“Sorry, Simon, I need to borrow your signature moves…”
Aoi- “Hey mister! I’M A MAD CHILD-SCIENTIST!” Knight- “Why do I get the little kids…?”
Alma- “Dude, I got this sweet paint job! You?” Knight- “Kick ass wings and a blu-ray player in my chest.”
Lau- “You really were my Knight in shining armor!” Knight- “Terrible pun, I think I’ll just drop you now.”
The final episode comes to a slow end after a touching scene with Aoi and Ruri having a moment together as they hug, and then a random time jump. I really have no idea how much of a jump it really was but I would say probably a few days or so. Anyway we watch Aoi and Ruri who seem to be running the company together, they even have time to take Alma and the rock club out on a boat ride! As the credits roll we get a shot of the sky and a red shooting star flying past them with Hellbrick, officially ending things.
Hellbrick- “HELL YA! I AM ON A BOAT, BITCH! Wait this better not be a nice boat ending for me! Noooo!!”
Hellbrick- “Ahh, hell no! I am stuck baby sitting this child….” Aoi- “Don’t make me drop you.”
Knight- “DUDE Someone stole my pants! Bet that Hime girl from Metanorn did…”
Lau is taking after Knight, going shirtless for the final episode!
Aoi-“Oh sure, now you want to hug me!” Ruri-“Sorry, I have a little sister fetish…”
Well, this was a good episode! I was quite happy with how things turned out, sure this wasn’t the most action filled episode but we did get to see lots of transformations! Especially with the new look for Knight’s suit. I sort of knew Aoi was going to help him change into something. I was thinking Ruri would do that but I guess once you are “bound” to the person who uses gems on you? Well, it is a contract style transformation thing or so it seems. So, which new suit did you like? Alma’s? Knight’s? Maybe you liked Lau’s frog suit? Or Kenmi’s new golden dragon-man-suit?! Personally I liked Alma’s new look but that dumb ass helmet of his, what was that?! Also, Knight was rocking those new wings of his! But he also had a lame helmet.
So that fight I was waiting for last week: Alma versus Kenmi! What did you think about that one? I guess it was alright for me even though it seemed like Kenmi just stood around and laughed the entire time while Alma punched him. I liked Kenmi’s suit until he changed into that lizard! WHY! He was looking great without those teeth and that face. Oh well, they always did warn Knight and Alma they could end up like that too if they stayed in the other form too long. Now for Alma’s GIGGA DRILL BREAKER! Err I mean sacred drill arm attack; yes, I know everyone watching that scene probably were like *facepalm* TTGL Drills really? *double facepalm* I remember shouting at the screen DON’T YOU DO IT, ALMA! Nooo!! Then he did it… I guess they got tired of Alma’s fist-gun-explode-monster-dead-world-is-safe formula they liked so much.
I think this episode clears what gender Lau might be! Leaning towards guy, unless Lau is super loli? Compete with the flattest chest in anime! Then again to be honest I really don’t care if Lau turned out to be a guy or a girl. Sure Lau didn’t do much for the story but without him/her, Knight wouldn’t be around to save the day or smack Alma around for a few episodes. I wonder if those two could survive in a spin-off series together?! Sunrise get on that project now! I did like Lau’s monster looking eyes it makes me want to draw them.
Well, Sacred Seven you were a fun series to blog and I think I could watch this again with English dubs; I can sort of guess who would be Alma and Knight. Now this series does have mecha, but the mecha was kind of pointless for me. Makoto is a great character don’t get me wrong but he is a terrible pilot. I guess they felt that character needed something of his own to fight with. Now for the girls! Ruri I liked but at the start I really hated her, because it seemed like she was using Alma as her personal weapon. Sure she did change after that “date” episode, which made me start to like her a bit more. Overall the best thing about Sacred seven: those battle maids! Ahahah they were awesome for background characters! Oh and those insert songs by Megumi Nakajima? Very nice, I liked the final song in this episode; now to wait for that OST to come out. Overall I probably would give Sacred Seven a fat six out of ten! It could have been better without a few of those random episodes.
I want to give a huge thanks to all the readers and comments! Thanks for hanging in there with me and following these reviews for Sacred Seven. Here is some exciting news here, another episode is set to release next year! Basically it will be a remake of this final episode with more on Knights past life and the fight with Kenmi from Knight’s point of view with a few new scenes thrown in.
