RATING

8.25 / 10


TL;DR

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to watch such a “complete” show.


CONCLUSION

(clap), (clap), …, (clap).

Seriously, this show was a wonderful experience from start to end. Nanatsu no Taizai brought literally everything to the table- the laughs, the cheap thrills, spurts of comedy, character development, immersive action sequences, story progression, proper pacing, hell, it even gave us fucking ecchi as an added bonus.

Also, A+ for the music and sound composer(s) for this series- very fitting (and unexpected) tracks that are not usually found from an action/adventure-based anime.

The episodes didn’t drag out that much but still gave us plenty of plot direction and progression. What I truly appreciated was the fact that it was able to maintain a certain degree of lightheartedness within its genre. Not entirely slapstick comedy but I’ll be damned if it wasn’t entertaining.

If you were to ask me, this is the epitome of a well-made shounen battle anime. It gives you everything you ask for, and then some.

P.S.

The manga is still ongoing (as of this post) (lol), and it seems to branch off into a new arc after the anime’s ending. Just FYI, that’s roughly chapter 101.


EYE CANDY



 

… AND WITH THAT,

NANATSU NO TAIZAI WAS MY FINAL SHOW FOR THE YEAR OF 2014.

ONWARDS TO THE 2015 SHOWS NOW.

LOL.
