Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. I hope everyone is having a great, safe, and healthy week. So, let’s begin.
This season of the seven deadly sins shows us the Great Holy war which resulted in the sealing of the Demon clan with the help of the Goddess clan. The secret behind Meliodas and Elizabeth causes Meliodas to take some rash decisions. But, the rest of the members of the seven deadly sins aren’t going to let this happen so easily. At the same time they mustg protect the kingdom from destruction by the demons.
I have always seen the seven deadly sins as something just above average. Of course it always had good characters and great action but I always felt that the plot really lacked the force behind it to make the whole anime great. That’s why I feel this season really changed my opinion of the anime because rather than focussing on meaningless fights and pushing forward with the story, the anime really focussed on developing its’ plot and that is what made this anime so much more interesting.
First coming to the actual plot development. The fact that the naime finally covered the Great Holy war was a major factor. This cleared up a lot of questions regarding our favourite characters and the creators were able to relate almost every single aspect back to present times which just allows you to relate to each character even better. For the first time I actually felt that the dialogues really mattered in this anime. Further, they were able to talk about Meliodas’ and Elizabeth’s curse which created a sort of suspense for future seasons as well. The plot discusses Meliodas and Gowther’s relation with the 10 commandments and I fell that was a highly needed clarification. Another really good addition to the plot was the explanation of Merlin’s past and her relation with King Arthur. This added so much depth to the whole anime’s plot which was required. The anime finally feels like it is headed towards a certain end goal and that’s what makes this season so much more captivating. By finally giving us a clear plot line we are able to sympathize with each character more and has made this anime so much more meaningful as a whole.
Even though I praise the plot line a lot, this does not mean you should sleep on the action in this season as well. There are plenty of note worthy action scenes which will leave you at awe. The battle between Meliodas and Escanor is a clear example of a great action scene and probably an extremely iconic one as well. Further, the scene where King Arthur comes into the picture is absolutely phenomenal and had me glued to my screen. Just seeing perform so well brought a sense of excitement. And even though it didn’t end well with him it will always be in the back of my head as to what is the extent of his power.Another great action scene was the battle between the seven deadly sins and Chandler (Meliodas’ master). This was a great battle with an awesome display of power. By introducing the four archangels, the anime introduced much greater power levels than what we were used to in this anime before. Also, seeing their charcater developments as well was very interesting.
All in all, this season was the best season of the seven deadly sins for me. A great mix of a good plot line, great action and good suspense for another season is what really seperated this season from the rest. The animation quality is good like always. The opening and ending songs were decent. If I were to have any complaint with this season it would be how abruptly they ended the season. Even if it did add some suspense I felt it was too sudden and they needed to end with more context. Overall, great.
I would give this season of the anime 4/5 stars.
