The latest offering from Sunrise, the first episode of Sacred Seven is pretty solid. While it isn’t out of the world awesome, the plot held some promises and the action quite enjoyable if standard.
The episode started with the emo main hero, depicted to be the delinquent boy at school. It is later revealed that he went berserk a few years earlier due to uncontrollable powers. Possibly not knowing this, one of his classmate went out of her way to invite him to to a museum for a rock exhibition, since she have seen him picking rocks at the river. Predictably he refused.
While home, the heiress of some zaibatsu give our soon to be main hero a visit and ask him to lend his strength. Not only he is unwilling, when he gets emotional, the hidden power emerges again, almost uncontrollable, and dangerous to everyone around the vicinity. The heiress decides to withdraw for now.
At the same time though, the first enemy, a rock golem with a detachable medusa head, is making its way to the city museum to get one of the precious stone that will make it even stronger, allegedly.
Long story short our hero fights the golem, winning but went berserk in the process. The heiress revealed that she has a stone that will allow this power to be controllable, and thus the Sacred Seven hero emerges.
There is not much to say further, and unless there is some amazing story waiting, this looks to be just a generic action show, albeit with some decent fights (This is Sunrise, after all). The currently airing Tiger & Bunny was much more exciting in its first episode.
