TL;DR Review

The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments is a real sequel to the series from season one, unlike the four episodes mid-season that was aired in 2016.

The animation again is just as gorgeous as the first season. The colors are super vibrant and oh so cheery. The anime is credited with a 3D CGI artist, but I am uncertain where the 3D CGI was implemented. If I had to guess, it’s the mother boar where the bar is on.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments first opening theme song titled “Howling” is a collaboration between Flow and Granrodeo, and first ending theme song is “Beautiful” performed by Anly. The second opening theme titled “Ame ga Furu kara, Niji ga Deru”(雨が降るから虹が出る) by Sky Peace and second ending theme titled “Chikai”(誓い) by Sora Amamiya. I am not particularly fond of any of these songs this season.

The second season of The Seven Deadly Sins started out very good and grabbed my attention right away. However, it slowed down and somewhat meander a bit near midseason.

There were some sub-plot that didn’t seem to pan out very well. The whole power up sub-arc doesn’t seem to mean anything when you have 3 overpowered Sin around doing all the work. Most of the other Sins don’t seem to be contributing much of anything to the fight. It feels like near the end, they sort of either rush it or sort of put a break on it in order to save some stuff for season 3. This season of The Seven Deadly Sins does feel a bit Dragonball Z-ish.

Overall, I would recommend this binge-worthy season to the fan of the series. There are very little filler and the story arc are mostly satisfying. This anime contains crude humor, moderate suggestive themes/dialogs, and graphic violence. Intended for young adults. Intended for young adults.
