This Netflix original based on the manga by Nakaba Suzuki is amazing! It is almost like Fairy Tail meets The Devil is a Part-Timer! This is now one of my favorite animes and I can’t wait to see what is in store for these characters, as I believe there will be a second season. I will also be reviewing the manga later (done with the first two volumes and the anime seems to follow the story so far).
At first when I saw that it was a Netflix Original, I was sort of hesitant. What was Netflix doing with an anime? But I figured I would give it a shot and by the second episode, I was hooked!
The Seven Deadly Sins follows Elizabeth as she is trying to find the Seven Deadly Sins to restore peace in the kingdom. It was told that they betrayed the kingdom and killed the Holy Knight leader and they have been fugitives ever since. Elizabeth, however, doesn’t believe this and knows the Holy Knights are corrupt and need the Seven Deadly Sins to stop them.
However, the Seven Deadly Sins aren’t what she expected. The leader appears like a kid (but sure doesn’t act that way…), the second a giant, an immortal, and so on. None are of the same species, as this world combines the world of the humans, demons, fairies, giants, and so much more.
From what I can tell, this is supposed to take place in ancient Britain, the fairies and giants being some of the legends of England. It’s very loosely based of course but still interesting. The world is really cool and interesting. I wish it was real (kind-of).
The characters are really well developed. Each have their own back story and in the first season, you get to see a lot of their back story. Ban, the Fox sin of Greed, is my favorite by far. He is very fun and has a back story that I very much enjoyed. I can’t wait to see where this character ends up.
I am actually on my third time watching it through this week (I started on Monday and it’s Friday). First time I binged it while sick, second I watched it with my husband, and then I found out it was in German and now I’m watching it in German. I usually can’t watch something more than once, and definitely not right away. This story keeps me so interested that I am able to watch it three times through AND read it as well. I cannot wait for the second season! Do check it out, it is worth your time!!!
But seriously, go watch it right now.
