The Seven Deadly Sins: Is it Worth Watching?

The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai Kamigami no Gekirin) is a Manga based anime, written by author Nakaba Suzuki. It was first aired in 2016. The Anime shows us a medieval fantasy land where magic and knights co-exist along with many other races(demons, humans, and more). Each Deadly Sins has a unique ability, power level, symbol, and sacred treasure. They have earned their titles (Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride) based on the grievous crime they have committed.
Otaku fans can find many similarities to One piece and Dragon Ball. From the very first episode, it gets fiery with fast-paced action and humor with a little pinch of PDA, guaranteed to keep viewers hooked. Thus leaving viewers wanting more. The Seven Deadly Sins Characters build-up is quite strong with a background-origin story. These stories unfold with each episode without any fillers, that I liked the most. But by the end of Season 1, it turns dark and filled with gore which many fans might not like.

The Seven Deadly Sins Plot

The Seven Deadly Sins
The narrative takes us to a fictional transcription of the British Isles. In the kingdom of Liones where the citizens of the land are protected by the ‘Holy Knights’.

My Thoughts

Among all of the characters, my favorite characters are Meliodas and Ban. Meliodas being The Wrath, also the leader of the band maintains quite a connection with everyone. He is calm but when provoked he loses his temper. In other words, he unleashes the raw power he contains within him which is quite fun to watch destroying the enemies in one go. Most of his battles end before it starts which gives quite an adrenaline rush. Similarly, Ban literally steals the show just like his ability Snatch. His friendly rivalry with his Taichou is refreshing to watch and will keep your jaw-dropping. But when the real showdown begins he will do anything to protect his captain.


In other words, this anime has a dash of everything; fast-paced action, humor, mystery, gore, and least but not last ironic romance. In conclusion, this is a must-watch anime for every otaku fan out there. You can find this anime streaming on Netflix.
