Nanatsu no Taizai
Yeah, I’ll do this post a bit early because I already know that I won’t write about this show. You see, I already follow the manga. I know what is going to happen from here on out, which would have a negative impact on any and all reviews in terms of spoilers. I am definitely going to watch this though.
The artwork; not bad. Not bad at all. Things look a little bit “shiny” (for lack of a better word) though. You can clearly tell that this is by no means a budget production by looking at the level of detail in the artwork. They also don’t throw a lot of fan service crap in your face. This show is very subtle when it comes to that.
The story, believe you me, is great. It’s very original and very interesting. I can definitely sit through twenty-four episodes of this stuff. No problem at all.
It goes without saying that I recommend this show. The manga is quite popular and I am pretty certain that the anime adaption will be too.
Plot Summary: In a world where humans and non-humans have not yet been separated, the kingdom of Leones is protected by the Holy Knights, powerful magic users both revered and feared by the people. Supposedly the strongest, most fearsome of these knights, the Seven Deadly Sins, betrayed the kingdom and made enemies of all the other knights. Queen Elizabeth doesn’t believe this story, and sets out to find the Sins – but when she meets the first Sin at a tavern, his name is Melodias, and he’s nothing but a boy in charge of the pigs.
