Sacred Seven 01 – Awakening of the Stone


Oh hey there, Megaman ZX.

“Awakening of the Stone”

I have a bunch of tweets that could sum up my thoughts of this episode, so I’m just gonna combine them all and create this post. What we have here is a original anime by Sunrise. On the surface it looks like a high school mecha shounen. A lot of people have been comparing this to Star Driver which isn’t fair. To me, Star Driver wasn’t even shounen. In any case, let’s get this post underway. Read the rest of this entry

Star Driver 21 – Libido Coming of Age

“Libido Coming of Age”

My, oh my did a lot happen these past few episodes. This episode served as a sort of test run for the new Overphase system that the Science Guild has been working on. Also, while Needle Star may have turned on Camel Star last episode, it doesn’t exactly mean, she’s switched sides. She was just concerned about Madoka having no access to her broken Cybody as Camel Star is trying to take out Wako, the South Maiden. As you saw, Needle Star challenged Takuto to another fight, only to be TAU MISAIRU’D again. There’s a few things I should talk about.

Star Driver 17 – Vanishing Age


Vanishing Age

“Vanishing Age”

I’m not in the best of moods today. Whether or not that’ll reflect in my writing, we’ll see. However, I’m not gonna go too much into this episode even though it was filled to the brim with FABULOUS. So, Head is a fucking troll. Not only did he play a coup d’etat card, but he made his own Vanishing Age group the only people that really matter as well as destroying the cybercasket.

Star Driver 16 – Takuto’s Mark

“Takuto’s Mark”

This house is FREEZING and my hands are incredibly cold. But I’m gonna try and write this. So, I really liked this episode and it was fairly spectacular to watch. A few truths were revealed and this episode more or less ended the Mizuno arc.

Star Driver 15 – Maidens of the Seals

The Maidens of the Seals

「封印の巫女」 (Fuin no Miko)
“The Maiden of the Seal”

Well, this was quite an interesting episode. What set this episode apart from the others is that there was no weekly apprivoising. This episode was just solely PLOT. A few revelations were made too, and there was a lot more development as the episode focused a lot on Mizuno this week.

Star Driver 14 – Ayingott’s Eyes

Ayingott's Eyes

“Ayingott’s Eyes”

Marking the mid-way point in the series we are presented with a new OP and ED. I’ll give my thoughts on those in a bit. What I do wanna say though is that this episode was a true turning point in the series. The episode felt like that one big boss you have to fight once you reach halfway through an RPG. That’s what it felt like. Shit just got real, man. I have to admit that there wasn’t really much going on in this episode over than a few revelations, so I’ll give this a quick run-through (mainly so I can finish my rounds of blog posts for this week).

Star Driver 13 – The Red Sword In Love

The Red Sword in Love.

This episode was rather interesting and gave us a bit of backstory behind Benio. While I have to say that I think this show is becoming some sort of sly harem, what with the amount of females Takuto’s involved with. I’m also aware I’m a bit late with this post, but since a few shows (including this one) took a break for the New Year period, I thought I’d take it easy and post this a bit later, but before the next episode airs.
