7 Reasons to Watch Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix

We started Seven Deadly Sins with low expectations and high hopes.

There were nearly five stars on the screen in front of me for encouragement and yet something about an anime produced by Netflix still filled us with trepidation.

Here are 7 reasons we all need a little sin in our lives:

1. It’s based on a highly rated manga series

Published in 2011, Nanatsu no Taizai, gained high ratings, progressing from a short 52 issue release into a serialized story starting in 2012.

An anime was released last year in Japan but this will be the first time the show has been aired outside of the country.

The story takes place in a time not unlike the Middle Ages where feared and celebrated Holy Knights ravaged the kingdom, overthrowing the royal family and massing vast armies in the name of war.

Young princess Elizabeth fled the royal palace to find a band of outlaws known as the Seven Deadly Sins who she believes to be their last hope.

2. Produced by the same studio that gave us FairyTail

A-1 Pictures Inc. is a Japanese production studio that is best known for its work on the anime FairyTail.

Notorious for its humor, action and propensity toward friendship and teamwork, it’s easily one of my favorite shows.

Whether or not they meant to, Seven Deadly sins has a flavor of FairyTail. The anime is quirky and funny.

3. Fast Action

We are a sucker for a good fight and with a plot centered on a holy war; every episode contains an epic battle between our unlikely heroes and their deadly foes.

This anime is fast paced. Battles are not dragged out over countless episodes leaving the viewer with a nasty cliffhanger and a feeling that the plot really didn’t go anywhere.

Each member of the Seven Deadly Sins is a criminal with a personality matching that of their designated sin so as you can imagine, everyone is hot headed and ready for combat.

4. Dark and Edgy

This show is deceivingly grim. The art style is very cutesy, the characters very young, and of course there is a talking piggy sidekick.

Imbued with the blood of demons, they pursue the seven sins obsessively trying not to just capture them but to end their lives.

Their undertaking leads to the death of countless innocent men and women. Even our heroes have a dark side.

The title of wrath, envy, sloth, greed, etc. comes from a singular transgression that the individual character committed in their past and the viewer is slowly introduced to these sub layers throughout the season.

5. Sexual Humor

Perhaps my favorite part about the show is the snarky sexual humor.

Meliodas is perhaps the main instigator of the banter, being a self-proclaimed panty stealing groper.

The viewer gets their first laugh as he pumps Princess Elizabeth’s breast checking for a steady pulse.

But it doesn’t stop there, as the series progresses there is no shortage of crude jokes, butt pinching, sexual innuendos and more.

Some characters even beg for the harassment.

6. The Feels

Every good anime knows how to play to the audience’s emotions and the Seven Deadly Sins is no exception.

Although the whole show is not too depressing, prepare yourself to cry and yell at your tv screen.

Our heroes are not immune to hardships and I find it makes them more endearing.

We share touching moments with each of the characters, laying bare their vulnerabilities in direct contrast to their unimaginable powers.

 

7. Underlying Romance

A little romance perfectly rounds out this anime. Not all anime cater to the softer emotions.

Many are dark and depraved and offer little in the way of genuine affection. With Seven Deadly Sins we find a timeless love story, a polygonal love triangle, unrequited love, and love long lost.

Nevertheless, the show is not overly sappy. The viewer finds themselves rooting for that moment when our lovers finally kiss or crying at the loss of someone special.
