I had my doubts regarding Sacred Seven after initially reading the synopsis since it seemed like a textbook shounen premise.
After watching two episodes of it, my doubts were justified. The story follows a reluctant hero who happens to have latent superpowers (the power of Sacred Seven) and ends up fighting these monsters called Dark Stones which can only be defeated using said power. Then throw in an extremely wealthy heroine who also has an army of maids that fulfill the roles of snipers, helicopter pilots, and whatever else is necessary. The result is Sacred Seven.
Everything about the series just feels somewhat random and cliche. Since Sunrise was behind it, I expected at least the battle sequences to be good, but they’ve been pretty one-sided and anti-climatic. However, he has only fought minions so far, so I look forward to the later battles against more difficult foes.
The best part of Sacred Seven hands down is the opening sequence with FictionJunction singing “stone cold”. 🙂
