In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the "Seven Deadly Sins," were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.

Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins. With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights, but to also seek justice in an unjust world.

My experience of this anime can be summed up by the word "meh". I went into it hoping for a nice twist on the seven deadly sins being the good guys, and some awesome fight scenes, and ended up sorely disappointed. Sure, the characters are known by their sins, but rather than be actual embodiments of said sins, they were simply granted them as derogatory titles, so they fail to stand out as shounen manga characters in that department.

The characters don't undergo any sort of development across the series, and for the most part are bland and boring. Ban is pretty fun because of his read more

Plot or story wise, it's acceptable.

Characters? A big loud whooping NO!

Lead Male character is nothing but a pervert, sometimes annoying.
Lead Female character is whinny princess who... ugh... I just don't know how to explain her. Given she only wanted to help, but still... and like when Lead Male character grope her, she was like "oh!" and she's okay with all that.

Side characters are... well, I dunno, okay I guess.

At the end of the day, I guess this is not my cup of tea. And while the art is not as bad and is pleasant to the eye, the overall entertainment factor fails for me.

[First review] [bad english]

Story: 1/10
Like every cliché shounen, The Seven Deadly Sins has a mediocre and linear story, that is only used to justify fanservice and nonsense fights. The plot follows Meliodas, a very dumb and innocent dude (despite he always abuse his friend Elizabeth and, sometimes, turns into a demon), who is unjustifiably determined to help the princess that he knew 2 seconds ago.
It's basically a generic copy of Fullmetal Alchemist, but one thousand times worse.

Art: 5/10
The animation is fine, but the trait is just terrible, and the character design is so badly done.

Sound: 5/10
The sound composition is, ultimately, just okay. It's fundamentally read more

“Seven Deadly Sins: Lion’s sin of pride, Serpent’s sin of envy, Boar’s sin of gluttony, Goat’s sin of lust, Grizzly’s sin of sloth, Fox’s sin of greed and Dragon’s sin of wrath.”

Action without reason or thought is just a testosterone-trip; complete with flashy powers and fights that drag on for way too long. So, it’s interesting to see an anime that suffers from these clichés and more – but also utilizes them to their fullest extent, giving rhyme and reason to them; which makes the show a whole lot more fun and meaningful than was expected.

The core plot is simply the adventures (and misadventures) read more
