Netflix pulls bait and switch with season two of "The Seven Deadly Sins"
After many delays and postponements, Netflix announced that season two of "The Seven Deadly Sins" would be released on February 17, 2017. The banner that appeared on Netflix's home screen tickled the delight of many American anime lovers, who had been waiting for this day for over a year!
Netflix's bait and switch
While Netflix got the hopes up of many people, on February 17th when fans went to view the series, they were left confused. Season two is officially listed as having 24 episodes, so why was there only a mere four episodes listed? Many fans took to Reddit to express their frustrations.
It turns out that instead of the actual season two being released, Netflix released the OVA (original video animation) "Signs of Holy War", which was a four-episode special that was meant to be the sequel to season one.
Netflix releases "The Seven Deadly Sins" OVA
Four episodes could hardly be considered an entire season. At best, the OVA could be considered an extension to season one. Marketing it under the guise of "season two" is a bit much. It is unclear whether or not Netflix did this intentionally, or if it was an honest mistake. However the uproar from the masses is sure to have caught their attention by now, yet, as of February 20th, 6:15 pm EST, no changes have been made.
"The Seven Deadly Sins" was just the second (in a slew of subsequent) anime that Netflix purchased exclusive distribution rights for.
The entire first season was made available on Netflix on November 1, 2015 and was received positively by Americanaudiences. It is also one of the most highly rated animes of all time, ranking #159 on MyAnimeList.net.
While it is still unclear when the real season two will be released, the four episode OVA serves as a great teaser for fans, keeping the story fresh in viewers' minds as well as getting people hyped up for season two.

Indeed, this tactic has worked, as people are flooding the internet with speculations of what is going to happen in the next season. The general consensus is that you can expect a whole lot more action and fighting scenes to occur, as well as new characters to be introduced. But perhaps the thing that everyone is looking most forward to is the revelation of Meliodas' dark secret (the sin that he committed). Viewers will have to be a little more patient before the answer to that big question is revealed.

The fierce battle between Meliodas, the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins, and the Great Holy Knight Hendrickson has devastating consequences. Armed with the fragments necessary for the revival of the Demon Clan, Hendrickson breaks the seal, allowing the Commandments to escape, all of whom are mighty warriors working directly under the Demon King himself. Through a mysterious connection, Meliodas instantly identifies them; likewise, the 10 Commandments, too, seem to sense his presence.
Characters & Voice Actors
A total score of 5 may seem hard on Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu (The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the 10 commandments or simply The Sins S2). Especially according to its high score. But I´m disappointed. I really enjoyed the first season and was glad when I read that a season 2 were coming, and with 24-episodes at that. But my excitement was steadily replaced with disappointment and uninterest. My review will contain minor spoilers to specify why I had problems with this sequel, but they will be heads ups for those (₴).
The biggest let down with The Sins S2 for me was the story and character developments. With that I mean a very uninspired story direction and an almost non-existing character development. What I truly loved about the prequel was the goofy but adventures story, filled with small surprises of meaningful meetings and overdramatic but interesting character interactions. I even didn´t care about Meliodas repetitively grouping of Elizabeth. Some shounen tropes were of course present, but it had its own style, feeling and inventiveness. The battles and fights made sense, they had drive and feeling in them, and some were really nice to look at. The mystic and allure of the sins and their past was thick, and some strong friendships and relationships were formed.
And then S2 happened. The far from straight but entertaining story path took a straight battle shounen path, becoming randomly magic/power level face offs, and character interaction became either repetitive, cliché shounen troopy or melodramatic. Let me give you an example, spoiler alert is on ₴. The battles changes from being about enemies facing off each other in creative ways with emotional investment, to be about magic and power levels, tournaments and powerups. Spoiler alert off. Why taking that direction? If this is a faithful adaptation, I think Nakaba Suzuki (the author and artist behind the manga), abandoned the good adventures concept he had established in the first half, for washed out Dragon Ball power level bs. I´m sorry but it is really how I feel.
Let me elaborate. You know the classic battle scene with the top bad asses, where you have proper build ups to get really emotionally invested in it? Well, don´t expect them here. The new threat appears, and in the beginning the whole thing had much potential. A demon clan has been freed (by Hendrickson in the end of the last season), and Meliodas seems to be connected to them. Many potential interesting meetings between the Sins and the Demon clan members, or plot/character developments/interaction as well as background stories. But most of it turned out to be pretty basic shounen trope encounters, with cliché battle speeches and brawly screams of their attacks with cool names such as “Death Breath” and wired mid fight power ups.
I really wanted to like this sequel. I was absolutely a bit enchanted by the prequel - the magical world with all its different inhabitants and magical functions was very enjoyable. I lost that feeling in S2. A few things are easy to pin point out, as the depletion of the story as well as the amount of new characters. In S2 the numbers of characters keep bashing in, diffusing the time and space from a lot of key characters. Some characters like Jericho got some nice development and time even if her Ban fixation could become a bit embarrassing. Ban gets more time as well (his background mini arc was one of the best parts of the show for me), Diane gets a solid number of episodes focused on her, and Meliodas is Meliodas so time has been spared for him as well. The rest? Is mostly neglected for new characters. Elizabeth? Gets less development than both Sakura and Orihime put together.
It felt like the narrative both speed up and slowed down at the same time. The scenes took 1s or 10 episodes. Most things happened to fast or to slow. A crashing battle there, and suddenly is guy 1, 2, 3, 4 and girl 1, 2 in a completely different geographical location, training and unlocking powers to left and right for episodes, for them to next split up and be in like 6 different places, to end up little randomly together at a third place later on. The reasons behind it? Weak at best, and mostly poorly explained. I lost interest in who the demon clan members were and ₴ how in hell they can remember things from 3000 years ago so clearly. I lost interest in the powerups, I lost interest in Ban´s and Elaine’s relationship, and I lost interest in Meliodas grouping of Elizabeth.
And here I think we are reaching the shows main problem. I just lost interest, in my eyes it didn´t carry this “new” direction well. It crumbled away along known and common battle shounen paths and ruining the atmosphere it built up to that point. The new stereotypical shounen approach just didn´t work well for me.
The Sins S2 is as its prequel an A-1 Picture production. If your familiar with the studio, think A-1 on a good day there they are putting some in some effort and money in their creation. The style is simplistic but characteristic, and as most A-1 productions, with some nice colourful backgrounds and with curvy ladies and muscly men. And since A-1 actually put in some effort in it, the animation is more than decent, with some intense battle scenes as the one between Meliodas and Ten Commandments or Escanors swift encounter with the demon Galand.
One of the highlights of the prequel was the solid rock-fantasy inspired soundtrack, which was affect full and well composed. Which they luckily stuck to this time around as well. No complains there.
So, to summon things up, The Sins S2 didn´t get the job done in my eyes and ears, even if I have no complaints against A-1´s accomplishment. I can see why many still love the show, but the magical spell that The Sins S1 had put on me was utterly crushed. Generic battle shounen can absolutely work, but this direction felt cheap, especially since Nakaba Suzuki had established a very magical world which could been focused on instead of long ego speeches on who´s the toughest, strongest, and most powerful fighter. #disappointedatthemediocracy
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before but it seems that battle shounen anime in recent years have been on the decline. Boku Hero no Academia became a big name that is able to carry itself but beyond that, there’s hardly any other that made a name for itself. Well, there’s Black Clover but that abomination is an example of giving battle shounen a bad name in recent years. Boruto has been an underwhelming sequel that looked more like a cheap cash grab for the franchise. Where does a show like Nanatsu no Taizai still stand?
To be fair, the series already established itself from some of its other projects like the first season, OVAs, and movie. It isn’t as long as some other shounen like Naruto, Bleach, or One Piece. In fact, it’s not even part of the “Big 3” as Westerners would call it. However, Nanatsu no Taizai does make a name for itself by developing its own ideas. The first season established the principle cast and felt more like a way to get viewers familiar with the story. In this sequel, the business really picks up as new dangers are unleashed into the world.
For those who don’t remember, the story picks up right after the first season as Hendrickson breaks the seal on the Coffin of Eternal Darkness. By doing so, he unleashes a group of powerful demons known as the “Ten Commandments”. Essentially, they are the central antagonists of this season. While we don’t know too much about them, it’s known that they hold a deep grudge against Meliodas for betraying them in the past. The first few episodes establishes their testament in power as one of their members is able to make Meliodas look like a jobber in a one-sided fight. This implies that the Ten Commandments are more powerful than anything Meliodas and his friends ever dealt with. In terms of characteristics, the Ten Commandments are known for their unique “Commandment” power and various personalities. For new viewers, you may be surprised at how much personality these beings show for their characters. It’s actually somewhat human for characters like Galand’s arrogance, Fraudrin’s manipulative nature, or Monspeet’s politeness. Unfortunately, there’s not much concrete characterization for the Commandments. I blame this mostly on the pacing because the manga explores much more about their past and roles.
There’s actually two sides of the coin regarding the pacing of the show. On the surface, it is indeed slow and some elements of the plot can really be condensed. I actually felt impatient after seeing the season focus so much on characters like Diane and Ban. The latter is actually more important but really should of been shorter than shown on TV. In addition, Meliodas’ past is explored only enough to give viewers an impression of who he is. In essence, it isn’t enough to show the more important side of his role as a “betrayer” to the Commandments. In addition, anime only viewers will probably question what it really means when certain characters call him a “demon” and “former leader”. The other side to look at is how faithful the anime adaptation is. Most chapters cover literally everything from the book with many chapters on a panel-by-panel basis. It’s loyal to the manga readers that really bought the show into what it is. Nothing is changed for fans of the manga especially those who are looking forward to certain scenes to be adapted.
Despite the season focusing on the conflict with the Commandments, new characters are also introduced from the good guy’s side. The most noticeable character is Escanor, the seventh and final member of the Seven Deadly Sins. He makes a hell of an impression that will make viewers hunger for more of his role this season. Other important support characters also make returns that may surprise you.
A-1 Pictures once again uses their resources to adapt this sequel although it actually impressed me for their work. There are certain episodes that really stood out that includes Escanor’s character debut, Meliodas’ confrontation with the Ten Commandments, and Galand’s rampage. Animation quality remains similar to the previous season although A-1 Pictures still falls into the occasional trap of awkward character models. There are also some scenes that didn’t feel as impactful as those in the manga especially in terms of character expressions. However, the battle scenes lived up to its expectations. This especially applies to climatic battles in the latter half of the show that also brings credibility of character power levels.
The music and OST is still composed by Hiroyuki Sawano although I’m a bit disappointed that most of it is just a rehash of the previous season’s. The new theme songs also sounds less impactful. Despite that, I think character voice mannerism should be given praise especially for the Ten Commandments. Yuki Kaji is able to voice two characters with very contrasting personalities. Others such as Escanor makes their personality stand out much more thanks to the modern talent of Tomokazu Sugita.
Nanatsu no Taizai: Revival of the Commandments is a battle shounen that is faithful but perhaps a bit too much for its own good. This series suffered from some pacing issues that I feel like some viewers will not easily forgive. Plus, some of the new characters didn’t really get the amount of charaterization it deserves. However, I would like to say to give this sequel a chance. It’s still part of the franchise that is committed to its ideas and continues to develop the main story as it’s intended. I just hope that when the next inevitable season comes, we get a real showstopper.
The bad part about expecting a show to be good, is that you end up hating it even if it's ok-ish. That's what happened to me after watching Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu, I thought it was gonna be good, very good.
I don't know about you guys but what I care about most in Anime, Movies or Tv series, is the dramatic structure, the characters and the dialogues.
The dramatic structure sucks, a lot of back stories and cheesy drama.
I couldn't stand the dialogues. They were so dry and predictable.
Nanatsu no Taizai's characters have never been good in my opinion, Ban is always mad and angry, Diane is a crybaby, cute wannabe, Eli is so annoying. This show has one of the worst cast ever.
The Art style and the fights kinda saved the Animé from being a disaster.
The sequel I desired, but not the sequel I expected it to be.
Pretty much the show starts off with a big thump, direct continuation from the first season. As strongly and unexpectable it could be, the rest of the show didn't follow the tempo.
At the start we are getting familar with an old-new, even greater threat than before. To be honest I felt like it was the most generic way the show could possibly go and further on I realized I was right.
Post-intro part gets only slower and slower while implementing stuff which doesn't feel that important for the main plot.
A LOT clichés for fantasy-supernatural anime world has been used, not many explanations that I wanted and some that looked like a filler... Well I feel like vast part of this season was one big filler.
Getting to the point, I didn't notice much of the story development (possible spoiler here: show ends in like half of what it wanted to tell!), not much of the character development (well, it tries to tell us about one thing, it tells but then it repeats it over and over in next episodes).
As long as the story is not doing its best, it can be still quite enjoyable.
Getting to the art, I don't know if the previous season was similar, but I noticed quite a few scenes here and there that were literally boring which lead my attention to focus on the art and what I noticed was poverty... It's understandable to make some cuts on the less important moments or backgrounds, while focusing on the first plan, but... Literally when making some 'fill in' dialogue, scene is one and long frame, with almost none movement, probably they expected to cover it with some nudity.
I would say that it's fair most of the time with some really awful moments.
I'm not really good with rating sounds, so I'm gonna say that it's avarage with some good tracks and openings.
Character development feels poor, focusing on few and neglecting all the rest, not much to say without a spoilers, but I didn't learn many new things about most of the cast. Good example of decent character introduction, but poor development (that was present all the time) is Escanor - such potential, mysterious and undiscovered character has been revealed with flat backstory, well, atleast his behaviour was interesting, but not much time was invested in that.
Coming to the end, show is fine, enjoyable but it got noticable flaws, that make it taste like an undercooked pork.

This show starts off pretty slow for a couple of episodes as it sort of staggers when all the main characters start showing up. The show is very good. The music is amazing, and always changes every few episodes, while keeping the same feeling. The characters are extremely memorable, they all are different aspects of the 7 deadly sins, and thus creating very differing and interesting dynamics between the characters. The anime has some cool ideas, and the art looks very pretty & neat. The story is also pretty cool with a nice “plot twist” right at the start of the series. The only downfall to the series (which for me makes it too cringe worthy) is the over sexualisation of the main character. At first it was fine and a bit of a laugh, but the more it went on it just became harder to watch without cringing… This is the problem with a lot of anime’s they focus too much on sexualizing it and it draws away from the main story/plot.What starts out as a surprisingly imaginative and seemingly subversive action anime gradually devolves into brainless, drawn out action and tired clichés. Oh well.
