I’ve always wanted to watch Trinity Seven; in fact, it’s on my plan to watch on MyAnimeList. Some of my friends said it was good and they said that it resembles High School DxD. I tried watching few episodes of High School DxD once and I didn’t continue it because I lost interest of the extreme ecchi-ness of the series. It might be the same to Trinity Seven but what caught my interest is the art style of the show. I’ve decided to give Trinity Seven a try someday but I keep on forgetting until I completely forgot to watch it.
Now, I saw the news of an upcoming film of Trinity Seven. I remembered it again, the anime that I forgot to watch. Well, maybe I’ll watch the movie instead but I may not get the story of the movie. So, I might as well watch the TV anime series first.
