Kenji Saitō and illustrator Akinari Nao’s Trinity Seven manga kicked off in the pages of Monthly Dragon Age on December 9, 2010. The ongoing series currently spans fourteen collected volumes, with the most recent reaching retailers on April 9.

Since its début, Trinity Seven has spawned an ongoing series of light novels by Sato and Nao, as well as an anime series that aired in the fall 2014 broadcast season.

The Trinity Seven anime series was helmed by Hiroshi Nishikiori (Angelic Layer, A Certain Magical Index) at Seven Arcs Pictures. Shinpei Tomooka (Inukami!, Sekirei) provided character designs on the project, while Hiroyuki Yoshino (Accel World, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) took charge of series composition.

Sentai Filmworks currently holds the domestic rights to the Trinity Seven anime series, which they will release on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 16. They describe the series as:

Things have been looking sunny for Arata Kasuga lately. Unfortunately it’s been the wrong sun in the sky, and the mysterious Breakdown Phenomenon that accompanied it destroyed his town and stole his beloved cousin Hiijiri, leaving Arata in a fantasy world of his own creation! There’s still a chance to save her, however, as the appearance of the Black Sun also revealed Arata’s potential abilities as a mage, placing him in the powerful Demon Lord class. But first, since Arata and his newfound magical talents are far too dangerous to leave to their own devices, he’s immediately whisked off to the Royal Biblia Academy. That’s where he’ll meet seven beautiful female mages whose powers are intrinsically tied to the same sins that Arata has to master to put his world back together. Of course, the tricky part is that they have their own plans for him as well! The lessons in sin are about to begin as Arata takes on the TRINITY SEVEN!

Yen Press currently holds the domestic license for the Trinity Seven manga series.
