Sacred Seven – First Impressions

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”. 🙂

    Haha, I actually chuckled upon reading your comment.

    It’s not bad…it’s just average. Army of maids: common sight these days, right? 🙂

    I dunno… This one actually seemed pretty bad from the first episode or two. It feels like someone wrote the script around anime tropes or something. It’s not -bad- but it would probably be better if the loli’s pet rock monster wasn’t the only part of the show done in a tongue in cheek style. It should poke more fun at itself about the maid army if nothing else. 🙂

    Oh, I agree about the pet rock. It would have been much better if he was completely removed from the series.
