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.
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.
