Thoughts/Review:

If I had to guess, Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07 is showing that you can’t really predict where this show will go from episode to episode.

No Comedy Here!

One of the things that I have really enjoyed about this anime series is the unexpected comedy elements. However, in Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07, there was no comedy to be found at all. Instead, the story took a very serious turn with Shiori’s possession and Christina’s threat.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07

At first, I was not happy by the lack of comedy. But then I remembered The Slayers anime series. There were plenty of comedy moments in that fantasy genre anime series, but there were also times where the story was serious and no comedy was to be found.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07

As to the story, there was certainly a serious threat to folks with the Shadow attack. And whomever Karyl is working for appears to be behind the Shadow attack. But what the greater purpose of using Shadows to attack is beyond me.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07

Also, I’m not sure I get Christina. I guess she’s just a cliched warrior type who’s looking for challenges and entertainment. I was kinda hoping Pecorine would fight her, but the story conveniently had Pecorine elsewhere.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07

Still, it was nice seeing Karyl get to unleash a bit.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

As always, I’m insanely busy, so let me wrap up my review of Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07 with some final thoughts.

  • I still have no clue as to what’s going on with the main plot. Yuuki is again taken to Ameth’s realm and given cryptic words. What happened to Yuuki’s former battle harem members?
  • I wish we’d gotten a bit more on Hatsune’s and Shiori’s relationship. Shiori calls Hatsune “Oneechan” and they are close, like sisters. During Shiori’s dream, we see the two girls together, but no parents or anything else that might give us more information about them. It may not be important, but I’d kinda like to know if they are just step-sisters, adopted sisters, or what.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07

In the end, Princess Connect! Re:Dive 07 was an entertaining episode. However, I initially was disappointed at the lack of comedy aspects, but I got over that.
