In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms.
However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones.
Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins.
With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights, but to also seek justice in an unjust world.
[Written by MAL Rewrite]Netflix owns exclusive streaming rights to the series, all episodes were released on November 1, 2015 in both subtitled and dubbed format.
Aside from the anime and manga, a video game adaptation and a few light novels also exist.
The first episode of the series ends on a very high note, hooking you up and making you want to see more.
But the series simply does not live up to the hype it builds.
With a plot that is simple and generic, character progression that feels rushed and fight scenes that could have been a lot more inspired, Nanatsu no Tanzai feels like a betrayal of what it could have been. It’s simple really because they are natural human instincts.
It's not bad, and there are some nice and touching moments, but it is simply not good either. That’s hardly what Nanatsu no Taizai is about though.
On the surface, the show seems to talk about the sins in their variety.
But really, this series is more about a journey, one that has our heroes find those lost Sins.
Like a classic adventure, Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins) crafts the extraordinary portrait of how a journey should be in such a fantasy world. This series has the infamous studio known as A-1 Pictures in charge which spells out for some controversy.
