A little later than I would have expected, but I had promised to write my thoughts on The Seven Deadly Sins anime. I think after my Anime Hero of the Month on King, and the fact I also cosplay him, it would have been very apparent to my followers exactly how I feel towards this anime. So without further ado, I will tell you exactly why I watched this beautiful orchestra for the eyes!
The Seven Deadly Sins is about a chick, who is a princess but dresses like she’s going to a kink fest/call-me–daddy con, who goes in search of a group of knights to help her do some stuff. I don’t know. Like grocery shopping er… Something. Just kidding! Elizabeth, the princess, needs the Seven Deadly Sins to reunite and help her reclaim her kingdom. The issue is, this group of elite knights disbanded after thought to have tried to overthrow the kingdom of Liones. The anime thus far has shown Elizabeth’s trials to get the group back together as well as trying to take back her kingdom.
What I noticed about this anime, right off the bat, was the art style. It was a little different then what I had been used to. In fact, I’d actually discussed this anime with a few other friends and some of them were adamant about not watching because it looked a little too cartoonish. I think in this respect, it sort of reminded me of Soul Eater and that might have been part of the reason why I like it. It wasn’t an important quality to me, really, but I think if that’s the reason you didn’t watch it, you’re missing out!
The character’s were what really got to me the most. I absolutely loved the layout for each and every one of them. I don’t think there was a single character that I could fully despise. They were interesting, colorful and it felt like each of them had a full story. Usually when an anime has so many characters, it can be difficult to give each one a proper background, but I thought this one did a good job in that department.
It wasn’t like Fairy Tail season one where most of the people in the background didn’t even move or have faces, lets put it that way. It felt like anyone who was going to be relevant was given a proper introduction and something to do in order to fulfill their purpose.
Also, the love dynamics were awesome. Sue me, I’m a sucker for love. It was great to see King’s crush for Diane and how much he cares for her, but her love for the captain and his love for Elizabeth, but there’s this whole thing with him and she clearly digs him too and- you know what. Run on sentences need to chill. You get my point though, there was so much going on in terms of the relationships (even non-romantic ones) that it really did feel like each character had a deeply rooted connection to the other.
So why did I watch this anime? Because overall, the whole thing was just great. I don’t think this blog post could do this series justice. My words can only hold so much detail and talent, but this anime is now one of my absolute favorites. I adore it. The comedy components, the characters, the drama it held… All of it just went really well together. Really, if you’re looking for a series to binge on, this is probably the one. Believe me, you will leave Netflix wanting to marry this anime.
