Review on Seven Deadly Sins Anime

This anime clearly defines itself as Action without reason. You may also call it a testosterone-trip, combined with flashy powers and fights that drag on for way too long. But it’s interesting to see an anime that suffers from these clichés but somehow utilizes them to their fullest extent, giving them a meaning and creating a subtle rhyme and reason to them, which makes the show a whole lot more fun and meaningful to watch.


The Plot is all about the adventures (and misadventures) of a team of knuckleheads as they travel the land, looking for other members of a mysterious group known as the “Seven Deadly Sins” (They also run a restaurant). Their travel diaries are all about the ‘team’ meeting the past members, getting into fistfights with various characters, help people out, chitchat, fool around and do things that are fun and just – while working towards completing their ultimate objective of reuniting all seven and reclaiming the land. The series did a great job balancing the humor, the drama, and the action (Echhi included). One doesn’t seem to overpower the other.

Seven Deadly Sins

The core of this show is divided into two aspects: the fights and the character development. Most of the main characters (and many of the side characters and antagonists) get enough screentime to shine and develop throughout the story. Character dialogue, actions and interactions, and fantastic backstories for many of the characters really flesh things out and add a sense of purpose and reason to the story.

Things don’t always end up as they supposed to be, and there are many turning points in the series where completely unexpected things happen that really make the series more refreshing and less repetitive.

Lastly, the ending is not upto the mark it’s a bit lackluster compared to the whole series, but still it’s okay to watch. And, the way it ends leaves it open to the possibility for a new season.


The art in ‘Nanatsu no Taizai’ is extremely high, and the fight scenes keep getting better. Action scenes flow is very well smooth like a river, and character designs, facial expressions, backgrounds, etc., are above par. The greatest thing about it is that the quality was maintained throughout the series, making us more excited for the upcoming movies and series.


The music in the series is also good. But there are many pieces used in repetition, and the music gets played at perfect times and scenes in which they are used and don’t become annoying.

All four of the openings and endings are really good, and I listen to them on Spotify too from time to time. The voice actors did a great job at playing the characters. No lines felt unnatural, forced, or otherwise lacking feelings.


The show excels only because of its characters. Each of them has a unique personality. Some fear things, love things and hate things. They basically do everything together (don’t take it in another way). They cry, they laugh and fight together. The series does a fabulous job at developing the characters and making it feel like these are living, breathing people.

The main female character, Elizabeth, doesn’t show much development compared to others. The same goes for the protagonist. Meliodas doesn’t seem to change over the series and remains an enigma for the most part. There is a backstory given to him that helps him take the limelight for some time.

Seven Deadly Sins

But so many things remain unclear concerning his character, the overshadowing part was done well, but it can be hard to attach yourself to him as the show progresses. Sometimes, he is just too overpowered, which means you never fear him losing in any of the action scenes, and therefore, there’s no tension.

The secondary characters are many, and they have their own well-developed backstory as well. The series was well planned, and There’s a great possibility of you to have a change in heart for the characters you hated before.

Where to Watch?


There are many flaws; I think all anime has some flaws. But even with those flaws, the series didn’t fail to entertain me, and it’s a delightful series. It had great fights with meaning, great humor, great characters, and some really well-developed stories. I’m sure you won’t regret watching this anime.

This is a fantastic action-adventure anime and a “sin” for the fans who fall under the curse of binge-watching all the Series and movies. The committee did a great job over-all and got a thumbs up from me. I can’t wait for the upcoming new movies what about you?

I’ll rate it 4/5 stars.
