Welcome back, you otaku’s! Anime senpai is back and this time he is here with a review of The Seven Deadly Sins.
Seven deadly sins is growing to be one of the most successful and popular anime in the world, and along with this series has also become one of the flagship animated titles for Netflix.
The fifth instalment of this hit anime was originally informed to be released in Japan in October 2020. However, due to coronavirus pandemic like many other anime projects, this one also had to be delayed.
But the wait is over. On the 14th of January 2021, the first episode for the 5th instalment was released and it gained massive hype from the audience and fans. From amazing, animation graphics and the epic background sound brought the chills on people. The episode started with a preview where season 4 was stopped and left in a cliffhanger where the villain Esstarosa kidnapped Elizabeth and took her along with him. Following him were The fairy King, 2 Archangels, The demon Derrier, and the pig hawk carrying Gowther. On the other half, we see Ban entering the purgatory to find Meliodas’s feelings.
The episode begins with Ban still searching for Meliodas as a transformed demon from hell when he comes back to his senses hearing his loved ones voice. Fighting every creature the ‘Sin of greed’ comes across a giant dragon and fights him for many decades (noting that time works very fast in the purgatory). After he fight with the beast, Ban lays on him and the beast kind of gets attracted to Ban, Later to be known the beast himself was Meliodas in flesh he was overjoyed to see his captain again. Meliodas burst into tears hugging Ban realising that he was not alone anymore. The chap ends here but there were few clips in between shown the place Esstarosa had taken Elizabeth. It was a sky base for the Angels. This was the drama that showcased in the 1st episode of season 5. Let’s wait and see what the next instalment brings for us.
