Written by Kenji Saitou and illustrated by Akinari Nao, the manga series was first published on December 9, 2010. Four years after the initial publication of the manga series Trinity Seven was picked up to be made into an anime television series. Following a brief production period, Season 1 of Trinity Seven premiered on October 8, 2014. Although Season 1 was followed by the release of an original video animation (OVA) special episode and two movies, fans of the show are still eagerly waiting for news on Season 2.

Trinity Seven Plot:
The plot of Trinity Seven is a rather fantastical one, and follows Arata Kasuga, a young boy who lives a seemingly normal life with his cousin and childhood friend, Hijiri Kasuga. However, Arata’s normal life is completely turned on its head when the sun turns black and causes something called the Breakdown Phenomenon, which completely decimates the town and everyone in it. However, just before Hijiri’s death, she hangs a grimoire around Arata’s neck, and the magical book manages to save Arata from being wiped out.
Following the Breakdown Phenomenon, Arata is left completely devastated, and he wishes for his life to go back as it used to be. Unwittingly, Arata’s wish triggers the grimoire, which artificially reconstructs the life he used to have and wipes away all his painful memories about the Breakdown Phenomenon. At this point of time, a mysterious mage called Lilith Asami appears before Arata, and his artificially reconstructed world completely disintegrates in Lilith’s presence.
With Arata still reeling from shock, Lilith gives him two options – either hand over the book to her or die. However, Arata is willing to do neither, and after some conversation with Lilith, he decides to take a third option, which is to enroll in a top-secret magic school called Royal Biblia Academy, where six other magical students are awaiting his arrival. Together with Lilith, the six students form the Trinity Seven, the elite mages of the school who have their unique powers and skills.
As Arata trains himself in the discipline of magic and learns to master many powers, he sets his sights on preventing the destruction of his hometown and his loved ones with the help of his newfound friends.
