Trinity Seven 08-09

After this, they had lots of sex.

I’ve given myself 30 minutes to write this post, start to finish. So expect it to be terse and to the point. It might also end abruptly.



Nothing To See Here

Just Lilith’s titties.

Episode 8 was basically a training episode. We review a lot about how magic works, but that’s about it.

Face Heel Turn

Mira’s dere.

Moving on, episode 9 sees a lot of information being revealed about Hijiri. Though we’re certainly left with more questions than answers. So Arata and Mira come across Ilias Fragment, another one of Hijiri’s grimoires. How many magical books does the girl need? Anyway, it is revealed that Hijiri is in fact alive and well, so the only pseudo-doppelganger going around is Arin. That said, supposedly the Hijiri Ilias Fragment speaks of is no longer the Hijiri that Arata knew. Which makes sense, because this “new” Hijiri wants to destroy the world for reasons withheld to keep us wondering. I’m not sure how any of this reconciles with the fact that we explicitly saw her disappearing from the breakdown phenomenon in the premiere. But I’m sure there is a plethora of magical explanations to hand-wave the issue.

My master destroying the world brings a tear to my eye~

Back to Ilias Fragment, I’m not quite sure what to make of the anthropomorphic grimoire. The words she uses suggests that she has a thing for Arata. But then she also suggests that these feelings really belong to Hijiri instead. So is she just replicating the feelings as a part of taking on Hijiri’s appearance? I’m not sure if she wants to trap Arata in the sealed world because she actually wants to have him forever (at least, until the world ends) or because it was a directive left to her by her master. Or perhaps it doesn’t matter anyway, considering the grimoire used to double for Hijiri when she couldn’t be around to care for Arata. I can see how that could be used as a rationalization to give a magical book (of all things) special feelings for our hero.

Are these Ilia’s feelings or Hijiri’s?

And as for Hijiri, the big question is obviously whether she’s really gone bad as Ilias Fragment claims. Assuming the annihilation of the academy was in fact Hijiri’s doing (or at least on Hijiri’s orders), we have no reason to doubt the grimoire’s words. But again I wonder how the gentle person Arata remembers could become such an evil mage. Heck, she even allegedly wants to kill off Arata’s harem. Forget destroying the world, we can’t have that happening! Well, maybe getting sucked into a breakdown phenomenon might have something to do with the drastic change. But as far as I’m aware, breakdown phenomena either erase or turn people into shadows or demons. And I don’t think Hijiri has become either of the latter options.

Episode 9 leaves us on a bit of a cliffhanger with Arata busting out his inner hollow demon lord. That’s a bit cliche, but really the only other option out of the pinch was for the rest of the big damn hero troupe to arrive in a timely fashion to save Arata, Mira, and Sora. Which isn’t much more creative. At least this option moves the plot ahead a bit now that Arata draws closer to the “dark side.”

Watch out! We got a badass over here.

    Episode 8 was basically all training as you said but I particularly liked watching Sora teasing Mira as she mounted Arata.

    Episode 9 pretty much took what was talked about last episode into the field, only that some things look grimmer thanks to first hand experiences. Is Hijiri that destructive? Well, there’s no way to totally know someone. Maybe she did well in hiding part of her actual nature. I mean, look at the contrast of Mira before and after she met Akio.

    For the sake of saving those close to them, you can expect to some degree the lead will give way to depravity to gain power.

    Mira’s “arimasen!” is nowhere near as cute or biting as Lilith’s. Actually, Lilith saying “arimasen!” is probably the best thing in the show.

      Lilith saying anything is the best thing in the show. Her voice is just so good in the ears.

      • Sumairii says:

        Agreed. She does sound a bit repetitious at times (I swear they reuse the same audio of her yelling ARATA), but that doesn’t makes her voice disagreeable.

      • BlackBriar says:

        I admit Lilith’s voice is good but it doesn’t have the sexy tone that Liese has in hers.
