Acquiring something a little bit older, North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks have announced that they hold the rights to the TV anime Trinity Seven. This is an adaptation of the original manga series written by Kenji Saito, illustrated by Akinari Nao and published in Japan by KADOKAWA Fujimishobo. Trinity Seven will soon be available via select digital video-on-demand services, followed by a home video release at a (currently) unspecified date. It is also unknown whether or not the series will receive an English dub, or if it will only be available as one of Sentai Filmworks’ subtitle-only collections.
This anime has been directed by Hiroshi Nishikiori (Azumanga Daioh, I’m Gonna be an Angel!, GAD GUARD). The role of chief animation director was shared by Kyoko Kotani and Shinpei Tomooka, with series composition handled by Hiroyuki Yoshino. Animation production was courtesy of SEVEN・ARCS・PICTURES (Dog Days, Asura Cryin’, WHITE ALBUM).
A synopsis of Trinity Seven can be found below:
Superbia. Invidia. Ira. Acedia. Avaritia. Gula. Luxuria.
These are the sins, or “Themes,” inflicted upon seven young girls who reign supreme at Royal Biblia Academy, but one boy has resolved to master those sins and reclaim his world.
The boy, Arata Kasuga, has his daily life turned upside-down when a mysterious event called the Breakdown Phenomenon causes his cousin Hijiri to disappear into an alternate dimension. In order to understand the Breakdown Phenomenon and get his cousin back, Arata enrolls at Biblia Academy – and what awaits him there are seven young girls who use their “sins” to manipulate sorcery.
