Contrary to the standard, Sacred Seven seemingly becomes worse with each passing episode – failing to even offer any mizugi service in the beach episode, only a weak overly conventional plot.
The past few episodes have had an episodic focus on small game darkstones embedded inside of lesser demonic creatures – generally meaning the action is just incredibly hyped on a simple threat, lacking, and wreaking of stereotypical shounen themes as we all know eventually Tandoji will face a massive threat against humanity dependent on his ultra-awesome power.
This time around the rock collection club, or whatever they were, head out to the beach – although unfortunately the shot of the busty glasses wearing girl above is probably the best scene of the episode.
Immediately after arriving to a deserted island bought out by billionaire super loli Ruri, Tandoji instinctively senses a darkstone thousands of meters away in a mountain. Kuroshitsuji finds out about it and irritatedly sets out in his mech robot which, luckily for him, materialized from nowhere.
Foolishly, loli-chan starts running off for literally no apparent reason and Tandoji runs after her. His mega bionic speed no longer seems to apply as he can barely keep up with her while she runs off into a cave endangering herself. She ends up also bringing a wave of worry and danger towards Tandoji who begins running around inside the cave in search of her like a rat all while lost himself.
Kuroshitsuji and loli-chan eventually cross paths as a slurry of torturous nonsense erupts from every direction of the cave in Tomb Raider fashion. Meanwhile Tandoji is obscurely fighting his way through some insects while transforming into a heterochomia shounen version of Naota from FLCL.
The day is saved as generic and disappointingly as ever leaving us wondering where the hint of stylish simplicity from episode one had went. Sacred Seven has been on a downward spiraling path of disappoint ever since episode two. Episode one was not fantastic, stunning, or jaw-dropping, yet it was enjoyable, somewhat unique and charming, something every episode since then has not been.
