Hello everyone, it’s been a while but I hope the year 2021 is treating you all well.
The 7 Deadly Sins anime was written by Nakaba Suzuki and the manga was published by Kondasha. Its about a group of knights that disbanded over ten years ago after being accused of trying to take down the Liones Kingdom. Years passed, when it was revealed that the Holy Knights themselves that were the true culprits and tried to arrest the royal family. The third princess, Elizabeth, escaped from them and now searches for the one group that can take down the Holy Knights, the 7 deadly sins.
Now, I’ll be honest with you when I tried watching this show for the first time years ago, I couldn’t get past the first episode.
The blame lies in miss goody two shoes princess Elizabeth. The first episode was so cliché and cringey to me that it made me not to watch the rest of the shows. Also, to add insult to injury she did the whole innocent, naive princess speech in almost EVERY EPISODE! I am not exaggerating when I say this, if you’ve watched the show then you know what I’m talking about. If their was a dictionary where the phrase,” how about we just talk it out” was in it then I have no doubt, you’ll find Elizabeth’s face right next to it.
Every time she would talk in attempt to stop the very dangerous situation from exhalating further. I could feel myself yelling at her to shut up and let Melidoas and the rest of the group throw hands and put them in the dirt. But, other than that…..I have no other complaints about this show, I loved it though and though and I can’t wait to see what the next season brings us.
Speaking of Meliodas, I could never get over how short this man was. I laughed every time the camera in the show panned out to show how big the height difference was between himself and his opponent. Besides, breaking their bodies and minds, I’m pretty sure their egos were heavily bruised from getting an epic beatdown from a guy that wasn’t even half their size. I’m pretty sure his power level sky rocketed when he fully embraced his demonic nature and evolved into what I have dubbed as Sir Edgelord. When he transformed I was thinking the creators should have completed the edgy look with a single streak of different colored hair. It was one of the things I couldn’t get over plus his deep voice when he changes.
Now, if you want to know who my favorite characters were then it would be Meliodas, Ban and Gowther. I liked Ban because he’s hot and you realize really quickly how powerful he really is. I mean the man got himself arrested and tortured for years because he was bored and had nothing else to do to pass the time. On the other hand, I liked Gowther because of his personality and how innocent and mysterious he was because he was the sin of lust. Now the question is how does cute, innocent but blunt cross dressing Gowther become the sin of lust?
I was wondering about that for the longest time until his backstory was revealed and everything was made clear.
Also, I’ve been wondering about a certain detail about the curse surrounding Meliodas and Elizabeth. So, if Elizabeth dies every time she meets and falls in love with Meliodas, then why doesn’t he stay away from her all together and works to break the curse himself. It was the one thing he never did, even though he knows what’s going to happen every time he meets her in another life. It’s not like it takes both of them to break the curse, so he could have minded his own business or watched over her from afar.
Even with that I still love the show and can’t wait to watch the next season. I really hope things work out for everyone but we won’t know for sure until we see it for ourselves. If you into action, romance and magical creatures then you’ll definitely love this one, too.
