I’m back from my vacation in Taiwan. That break was much needed and much fun. I did a lot of things and bought a bunch of stuff, but that’s a story for another time.
When I got back, I finished watching Trinity Blood. I actually started this series a long time ago, but I kept stalling it… because it is terrible. My main problem with the series are its characters. They lack development, and there are way too many one time characters who become important at the end. I couldn’t keep track of who everyone is. The few characters who do stick around enough are all pretty annoying too. I hated the protagonist, Abel. I just don’t like heroes like him. Further, the action sequences are really bad; they are usually just still images with flashing lights, scrolling, zooming, and such. The plot is pretty weak and uninterestingly predictable as well.
There are, however, some good things too. The characters look decent enough (in fact, some are really awesome), with the exceptions of a minor few. The settings and the architectures look great. The highlights of the series are the several scenic parts of the various cities.
Anyway, I, being somewhat of a fan of vampire or moody anime, was quite looking forward to this series, but it turned out rather disappointing.
The scans make the anime look better than it actually is.
