First Impressions – Trinity Seven

Arata’s gonna need to brush up his lovemaking arts, cuz he’s in for some long, sleepless nights.

Trinity Seven paints a surprisingly pragmatic picture considering the kind of show that it is. If you don’t like how things are, make your own path. And if you can’t do it yourself, get others to do it for you.


Well, shit. It seems that I might have the power to destroy the world. I think I should do something about that. What’s the best route I can take? I know… a harem!


Brave New Lead

Waking up like a baws.

skylion// As I am sure so many other will say, it’s refreshing to have a harem lead that isn’t a limp piece of day old zucchini. And while Arata doesn’t go out of his way to be a total horndog, he isn’t the type of guy to pass up an opportunity to “size things up”. And it was great that when things were “sized” for him, he took the path of discretion. All things in due time, this lad.

“The one with the outrageous boobs!”

Sumairii// I definitely agree that Arata is a breath of fresh air in the midst of generic harem leads. Sure, others of his kind might be slowly moving to the archetype of the unapologetic pervert as people grow tired of the unwilling lead “stuck” with an undeserved harem. But Arata strikes a sort of middle ground between the two by simultaneously being open about his preference for girls and yet not outright harassing them at first sight. Perhaps this makes for the most down-to-earth kind of character in contrast to the other two choices, which I suspect is why Arata resonates so strongly with the viewers. And there has apparently been no shortage of praise for him from the manga crowd even before the anime became a thing, so clearly we’re not alone on this thought.

The Harem Begins

Best ninja.

skylion// But yeah, world destruction. This is important! LIke so many characters of his sort, Arata seems to have inherited his power. Dunno why this world ending and world changing grimoire is in his possession, but for better or worse he is stuck with it So if given the choice of forgetting his life or dying, he pulls himself up to full measure and chooses the third option. Teach me magic! When you have to come out of field, take it from the left. And don’t stop there. If you can take a shortcut, take the shortcut. Seems like magic is the ultimate shortcut, so that shouldn’t be a problem, right? Well, maybe?


The shortcuts are as easy as conquering the best female students of his new magic academy. One could assume that means making allies, and then bending them to the task of both finding his childhood friend, lost in the netherworld, and controlling his horrible power…but that doesn’t mean some good old fashioned fun can’t happen, right?

Lookin’ for trouble.

Sumairii// That’s right. And it looks like we’re surely in for some good fun. So far we’ve only formally met three members of the Trinity Seven: Lilith, Levi, and Arin. And all three have left a good impression. Lilith, with her nice body, serves as our in to the dynamic septet as well as the world of the magi. Levi is a blast thanks to her playful personality that really makes her out as a female version of Arata. And the deadpan Arin hints at deeper machinations at work with her suspiciously familiar appearance. Which leaves us with just four remaining members to be introduced, two of which have already been teased at. If I had to guess, I’d say Akio is a tomboy just purely based on her appearance and mannerisms from the brief glimpse we catch of her. And as for Mira, I expect a reserved honor student given that she’s got the most accomplished skills out of even the Trinity Seven.

If I had to complain about one thing in this premiere, it would be that bathroom scene with Arata and Arin. That was the one moment that just felt inconsistent with Arata’s character. I understand that he’s not meant to be the unabashed pervert, so one might expect him to at least get embarrassed at being approached by a girl who is indifferent to her complete nudity. But I had thought he would handle the situation with more poise than to run out yelling. It’s one thing to reverse the roles and have him play the straight man, but it’s another to have him go from not batting an eye about grabbing his cousin’s boobs upon waking up and eagerly proclaiming his love for big tits to not being able to handle one naked girl. In any case, this was for the most part an excellent first episode.

I’m sure in the coming months we will all be picking best girl. But I am here to tell you that all will fail to the mighty Scarf Ninja, Levi Kazama. You know this to be true. I’ve read about 8 chapters of the manga, and in a realm of laid back haremette’s (Lilth excluded), she’s the most fun. It’s a new world, lay back and enjoy it…

Looks like blond twintails there has no concept of school uniform.


We live, laugh, enjoy and strictly believe on "more the merrier". When together, we usually come up with very chatty, conversation-based episodics and interesting posts.

    A good start off. Things can only get more interesting from here. Some of the girls have a foreboding aura about them so this should be fun to watch unfold. I’m already taking a particular liking to the ninja girl. She seems very sly. Arata made a choice most anybody in their right mind would make. If there’s a chance to obtain power, why pass it up?

    WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO! All aboard the WHO IS BEST GIRL train! So far I am torn between Arin Kannazuki and Levi Kazama, but I think I just want to see the magic on magic battles soon <3

      I’ve already got an exclusive pass!

    • Sumairii says:

      I’m leaning towards Levi for now because she shows the most personality so far. Arin doesn’t have much of an apparent personality because that’s how her character is and Lilith seems to be stuck with the unfortunate role of PLOT bringer.

    Not a bad first episode. Matsuouka dude is definitely being type-casted as a siscon; first it was NGNL and now this, complete with boob grab. The doppelgänger sure has nice and dead reactions. This seems interesting.

    I didn’t think it was that out of place. Kind of like a tease (I know, poor example), where they can play but when sh*t gets real, they chicken out. Kind of like that.

    • skylion says:

      Yeah, not at all. He may be able to take in stride the idea of the undiscovered country…but stepping foot that close?

      • akagami says:

        The Light! It’s blinding!!!

        I found it amusing to see him normally nonchalant and then when he faces someone on his level (or higher), he gets flustered.

    • Sumairii says:

      I personally thought he could walk the walk as well as talk the talk, which is why I was so surprised when he turned tail at nekkid gurls. But I won’t deny it’s possible I am wrong and he actually can’t walk the walk deep down inside…

    I like it so far. The character designs are a bit strange (their faces are so wide~), but it’s interesting so far, and Arata is channeling a little of Issei (HS DxD), which is not really a bad thing, considering how amusing he was.
