Does anyone know where there is a recap of season 2? I tried googling it but couldn't find anything. I only remember small bits, like the sun guy fighting the red demon, Merlin losing her body, and an endless mention of power levels.

It Doesn't exist pal

I really don't get why there are a lot of people are complaining... the animation quality is literally the same as before and the new studio have obviously chosen to start off with a filler ep as a way to remind everyone what happened at the end of the last season without it being a long, dull recap! I do have to agree though; censoring the blood is really dumb....

I thought this episode was awesome! But poor Howzer... he doesn't get any respect!

How is that supposed to change the fact I stated?


If you consider this conclusion that's based on inaccuracies still a "fact" then I'm not surprised you're questioning all of this.

So you're saying that somehow as soon as you saw that DEEN was doing this you had a precognition about it being made by a smaller studio and not actually Deen. That's what you're saying


No, I had this idea of waiting for the staff list and more information regarding the production before forming my expectations and jumping to a conclusion. Works quite well!

That was very bad for a first episode, from the animation to the dialogue.

I really liked the OP song but the whole sequence is just... bad. The ED is good in both parts though.

I think the animation wasn't bad at all. Bare in mind Deen subcontracted the animation so at least we are saved from the trademark Deen derpyness.

Some of the action scenes seemed dumbed down in comparison to previous seasons. Not a bad start and it still feels like the same show. Can do without the white Blood and censorship.

This censorship is ridiculous, hopefully this will change with an uncensored version. Perhaps watching this needs to be put on hold till the weekend till we have an uncensored version.

Animation is different, I first noticed it in the opening, that was terrible. I actually forgot that studio Deen was doing the third season instead of A1-pictures.. Please don't become a OPM S2..

Heared about Deen working on this only 2 days ago.

I know their reputation but I didn't even put the thought in my mind that it will just get worse just because of a Studio switch.

Well... yikes...

Not interested enough to read the manga but @ the people that wanna watch the Anime, don't. Read the Manga.

The TV version of season 2 wasn't censored though.

2nd season aired during the night, this is airing during the day


Season 1 had red blood and was broadcasted 17:00 JST, Season 2 had red blood and was broadcasted 06:30 JST. Season 3 is being broadcasted 17:45 JST, I doubt that 17:45 counts more as "daytime" than 17:00 so that ain't not excuse...

This episode was a mess, I'm very disappointed. I knew the animation wouldn't be great but it’s not the only problem. What is that censorship? I’ve a terrible feeling.

This was the worst episode in any anime I've seen in a while.

What's with that white blood? Horrible black censure over Meliodas' "corpse". A fucking black heart? Are you fucking kidding me?

This ep felt so wrong it made me uncomfortable. Appalling in all aspects.

It's ok. Filler to reintroduce us and then near the end it gets back onto the story. Censoring makes everything look back though, stuff looks goofy with white blood.

It's the TV version, an uncensored version should be available later afaik.


But why censor it now, in the 3rd season, when the first 2 were uncensored from beginning to end?
The white blood just immediately made me postpone this until it will be decensored

The new studio, Studio Deen, might be a bit more strict about censorship in anime then what A1 usually do, but let's hope they will release an uncensored version in the future as soon as they can.

Fight scenes are trash, the censorship is retarded but at least the rest of the episode wasn't static images. At least the camera moves left, right, up and down. That helps a little. But even then, this "recap" episode was unnecessary. If you want to show the demon devastation on land and people then do it. Don't just stick with it a third of the way.

But wouldn't censorship be demanded by the TV station they're partnering with on this project?
It's just dumb to go full on censoring when the first ever episode of this show was one of the bloodiest so far.
And trust me, this will ruin scenes and render them useless. Remember the heart of the demon? Welcome to SunlightTV, where we'll ruin your eyesight once and for all!

UVERworld always deliver with their opening songs.

Nice episode for most parts and it's not the production that I have an issue with, but rather the plot later down the line. As for now I'm still enjoying it.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

The first episode feels SO RUSH. I don't know if they change director or something cause everything feel so off about this season from the pacing, action & art.

Honestly, I am very disappointed with this episode and return to Seven Deadly Sins. I haven't been in the news loop for the series, so I was very surprised to see such odd changes.

When I first watched the series when season 1 dropped on Netflix, the first episode just tells you theres so much exciting stuff to look forward to and how amazing this is looking to be, just so magical. Its the way it is for season 1 and season 2, even when you're rewatching it.

When I started this episode, I was very confused and shocked. One of the main things being the animation, I didn't even realize that a different studio is doing this season, I don't even know what happened. The artstyle did look a bit similar, but I was just..."dumbshocked" to see how there is now censoring in play now on things you wouldn't see censored before, with it either being blurred out on some wounds, or just this really odd choice of replacing all the blood with shiny white blood. Other than the censoring, it just feels like compared to the past seasons, the level of animation has dramatically dropped.

Then there is also how the plot is being handled. With how its being handled, it just doesn't feel very investing or interesting..just so generic. Its really hard for me to get into details of how to explain what I'm feeling and seeing, but for example when the boy goes to stop the Demon from trying to take the travelers and hits him, it all of a sudden just cuts to everyone outside of the cage, right behind the boy, with some of the villagers. What? When? How? Did I miss something? Other than this, it just does not feel exciting compared to how you would experience the previous seasons, just so generic and bland..

I'm losing the spirit to even consider watching more of this season, I just got off from re-watching the previous seasons for the a second watch after so long, and getting right to this, I feel very disappointed.

The only thing bad was the censorship


But other than that, it was decent episode. The current score is too low in my opinion, deserve more than that

Haven't seen it yet but they really censored blood ?? Did NnT change age borders or why...it's action anime with deaths of demons/humans and others but without blood it will look like some disney channel type of sh*t where everyone thinks humans has rainbow inside of body and not blood,bones,muscles...

The new OP and animation are great πŸ‘Œ, there's no doubt about that, except for the damn CENSURE, it's a real hassle.
Why are Diane and King not with the rest of the sins? I don't remember anymore.
I thought Gilthunder would be named the new leader of the sacred knights, it is a surprise that Howser was.

Ps: I hope in the future an uncensored version :'v.

The white blood and black heart totally killed my hype. Not to mention the slow attacks from Ban and Meliodas, they do look like their abilities got worse, like they mentioned. I wanna call it Nanatsu no Chess.

I personally think the overall quality of the animation was good. The environments were all well animated and looked very detailed but i have to agree with everyone else that the fighting scenes were poorly executed and the censoring of all the blood really comes out of nowhere and just feels so unnecessary. If they improve the fight scenes a bit and remove the white blood this can turn out to be a good season despite the bad start.

Okay, pretty much nothing interesting happened. Don't like how the OP just reused some scene from the EP 1, but the ED was a good one. Other than ofcourse the new Boar Hat.

Idk. Since season 2, i've felt thay Nanatsu no Taizai has been going downhill imo. And this start... Wasn't really the best one to get me back into this show. And wow, the censors hurt, but still, i didn't think this episode was that horrible, it was actually kinda bearable. But i still have low expectations. We'll see how it goes.

3/5

idk if it's just me but I literally have no clue what is happening at the start of this season. Last I remember Meliodas died and revived and Escanor was fighting one of the 10 commandments for the kingdom or something like that.

Now all of a sudden the 7 deadly sins are back together and where are the 10 commandments and what are they all doing now? How are they not all over finishing off the 7 deadly sins or meliodas after his revival? Like they just sitting around and chilling? tf is going on? I feel like I missed some part or something, or is this anime just that bad at telling the story?

This episode was filler but I gave the benefit of the doubt because, some anime can pull it off, My hero academia for example, but when I saw the white blood I was scared, some of the best fights will look like shit. If no uncensored version is released I highly advise you read the manga.

An uncensored version will provably come in the Blu-Ray after this season will be over.
