Upon the first viewing of The Seven Deadly Sins many years ago, I thought it was enjoyable enough, in a guilty pleasure kind of way. I didn’t think much of this series then, as its art style makes the characters feel very cartoonish. You would almost think they are a shallow two-dimensional character.
The animation grew on me as the colors are very vibrant and bright, giving that happy vibe. The actions are very fluid and the fight scenes are satisfying.
The two opening themes are “Netsujō no Spectrum” by Ikimono-gakari (eps 2-12) and “Seven Deadly Sins” by Man with a Mission (eps 13-23). The two ending themes are “7-Seven” by Flow and Granrodeo (eps 2-12) and “Season” by Alisa Takigawa (eps 13-24). All are incredibly good and very upbeat, which match the series vibe pretty well.
Most of the characters have their own backstory arc, which further flesh out an already likable cast. I really like Gowther, as he is such a quirky character.
Upon the second viewing of this series, I find I really enjoy it. I just wish the show didn’t use so much fan-service element.
I highly recommend this series, just don’t let the cartoonish and often sexual harassment jokes turn you off. This anime contains crude humor, moderate suggestive themes/dialogs, and graphic violence. Intended for young adults.
