The Seven Deadly Sins, along with Elizabeth Liones and Hawk, have won the Kingdom of Leones back from the Holy Knights. At long last, it's their time to indulge in the peaceful lives they fought for. From inedible meat pies, overdue battles, unexpected stalkers, and the butterflies of first love, the Sins are accompanied by their friends in their carefree, fun-filled time together. However, the calm is broken with the premonition of a new threat, bringing upon the signs of Holy War and threatening to shatter the peace of the Sins' easygoing days.

Hawk is a nice guy-Gilthunder

First of all,the title "Seisen no Shirushi" or "Sign of Holy War" is pretty misleading,there's whatsoever not enough content that does justice to the hype the title created,unless we pay attention to extra couple of minutes here and there,secondly it would be wrong to call it a sequel,more of a mini-series or 4 part OVAs.

EPISODE 1- Our evergreen Hawk wants to have fun,ok.
EPISODE 2- Finally the most awaited fight BAN vs MELOIDAS,wait it was just a prank.
EPISODE 3- Romantic development between Titan Diane and king which the least people care about.
EPISODE 4- Another 20 minutes of misery just to see Vivian's read more

Seven deadly sins continues its excellence from the first season!

When considering the little amount of episodes,I usually don't have high expectations on this.But when considering the plot,it seems like seven deadly sins has lots of things to offer in this new series.

The story continues the story left off in the first season and all the mysteries and actions are back.In the first episode of this new series,the story revolves around the most classic comedy character Hawk,who runs away from the restaurant.

Don't think it's a stupid idea for such comedy beginning story in a popular title because all the characters personalities are back from the original read more

Oh my god.
is that what i have been expecting since the beginning of 2016?
The main anime was masterpiece but this one is just rushed anime compared to it.

Let's Begin with the story.
i don't see a story , i could link these episodes with the past OVA.
The fights offended the sins with the lack of creativity and dullness.
but i think the point of this series was peaceful days after the war.
The art is beautiful , colorful and pleasing to see.
But the animation is poor, i think one episode of the original series had more budget than this whole thing.
They changed so much , Gilthunder who was read more

This may not have been another season, but it's still a really good mini series. These four episodes don't necessarily add a lot more story, but to me they just seem to be fun filled episodes with some more great fighting, although brief, even more perviness from Meliodas, and some nice interactions between characters like Diane and king and others. As I said, there's not much story, but I don't think these episodes were meant for story. Overall, I still really enjoyed these episodes and I was laughing a lot, and also, the ending makes a good set up for a read more
