The Seven Deadly Sins
Volume 1


In a world where injustice prevails, the Holy Knights of Britannia protect their homeland with their unparalleled magic and strength. Their most sought-after targets are "The Seven Deadly Sins": a group of criminals once regarded as the strongest of Britannia's Holy Knights. Their supposed conspiracy to overthrow the Kingdom of Liones led to their defeat at the hands of the Holy Knights, but rumors persist that the seven infamous knights still live.

Ten years later, the Holy Knights ironically stage a coup d'état themselves and capture the King of Liones, installing themselves as the new rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth Liones, the third princess of the kingdom, sets out on a journey to find the Seven Deadly Sins and request their aid when she stumbles upon a bar owned by Meliodas, the Dragon's Sin of Wrath and the former leader of the disgraced knights. The pair sets out to find Meliodas' old comrades, but will it be hope or despair that awaits them in their travels?

Three words describe this manga: Utter-Fucking-Disappointment. If I could, I'd just leave this sentence as is for the review because I don't see why I must put in more effort in my writing than what the author did to the final half of his manga. As always, there will be little spoilers (except for the some parts which have major spoilers due to it being so bad I had to vent but I'll give a warning) in case you won't to read this for yourself.

This was one of the biggest let-downs since Fairy Tail as it offers a promising start with the lazy scribbles of read more

My first impression after watching the first season was that the anime was amazing but I couldn't wait for the second season so I decided to read the manga and at the time the new arc was barely just brewing and it was amazing, I was reading this, One Piece, and Bleach (which was barely finishing) and in the past it was the manga I was the most hyped up about once a new chapter came out.... After a few years a bunch of chapters came out and that hype died away by a lot and it's just sad because this series started out so read more

I'd like to say that the seven deadly sins are some great characters put in a terrible plot. I am not an outlier who likes the series more than others, as this is consistently been selling out in Japan. I just feel like there was some wasted potential that made others mad.

Story 3/10
Now I quite like the series, but the plot is pretty weak. It starts pretty generically, with a princess looking for the seven deadly sins, a group of knights that were banished from the kingdom. She searches for them as there was a coup in the kingdom, and the holy knights have read more

As a guy who reads/watches shounen its's a 7 but for those who dont like the generic shounen stuff would probably no like it. So if u like shounen and u dont know what to read/watch i would recommend it. If u want something new (in terms of story) then this aint for you. I forgot to mention if u are a character driven person then u might like this sries bcs it has some pretty good characters.
Thisis also my first review so pls like it so i can be a liitle happier.
I actually dont care i just want to write a review read more
