Sacred Seven caught my attention for its really cool poster as mentioned in my Summer Anime 2011: What’s Looking Good post. After watching 2 episodes, I have to say, it has a really good feeling to it.
It may look a bit silly with most of the organization’s members being girls in maid uniforms, and the storyline so far hasn’t really been that smooth. But what’s important at the end of the day is that it’s interesting and entertaining.
Knowing Sunrise, we’ll probably get some crazy plot development later on, but that would probably end up as part of the charm for Sacred Seven.
Character designs are not bad, but I actually liked the transformed Arma’s exo-suit. His red scarf-like somehow reminds me of something, although I can’t put my finger on it right now. But his weapon system reminds me of Mega Man and his flying skateboard screams Eureka 7, which is not a bad thing at all.
It may be strange to say this, but Sacred Seven somehow feels fresh right now, perhaps because there had been so many mahou shoujo magical girl series lately.
Definitely worth watching, Sacred Seven is looking to be a promising series.
I want a Hellbrick too!
