Nanatsu no Taizai – 02


By resquest, I gave Nanatsu no Taizai (Seven Deadly Sins) a second chance this week and, I’ll admit, there are times when my first impression of an anime is dead wrong.

This was not one of those times.


NnT/SDS isn’t exactly painful to watch. The animation is passable and it doesn’t aspire to be more than it is. The story isn’t the worst story ever either and, again, it doesn’t appear to take itself all that serious.

So it’s not pretentious or reaching beyond its means.

nnt2_2the self-burying pig-pub is the most interesting element in the show IMHO

Still…  this show abysmally average. The hero’s boob fetish, the cheerful and mostly unflappable princess who accepts constant molestation, and the quest to gather the rest of the party are straight up been there done that.

Does that make NnT/SSD horrible? No but it makes it impossible to recommend when 4 significantly more mature, more original shows air on the same day, let alone  the others that air during the week this season.

If you’re watching this show, or simply disagree, drop me a line in the comments below.

  1. I pity you, that you aren’t waiting for a single thing to happen, but instead rush to judge a show from the setup. The strength of this show is its cast, and if youd wait for even one more character, you might note that its hardly half as average as you think it is.

    1. So you’re criticizing the reviewer for reviewing these episodes for what they are, instead of reviewing them for what future episodes could be? You’re asking a lot for from Oigakko-san here and that seems unfair. I mean, he’s already reviewing a ton of good shows that have been good from the beginning.

  2. I’m thoroughly loving this series so far, every aspect of it. You won’t keep blogging it, but I appreciate that you gave it a chance, which piqued my interest and made me decide to give it a shot.
    There’s a lot of good anime airing this fall. It will be fun attempting to find time for it all.

  3. Ita. Pig character is really interesting, otherwise really avg show. Antagonist is soo uninspired.

    Worse yet, the constant molestation / sexual violation of a young girl makes it a hoot to watch. It’s ok bc the really OLD MAN CREATURE who is doing it looks like a kid AND he’s really powerful…so rape is ok! :)

  4. i agree nanatsu no taizai is damn awesome can be like fairytail or actually will be soon, love story line and action is on par with bleach
