This week we got again a very good episode of Seven Deadly Sins season 2. How can you defeat some overpowered heroes? With more overpowered villains obviously.
Synopsis
In the fairy kingdom, ban is able to regenerate the Holy tree with his blood. After the fight in last episode, King is dangerously injured, however he drinks some of Ban’s blood and he recovers instantly. The fairies love again their king and they cheer when they see, that Harlequin is alright. Gerhalde uses this opportunity to apologize to Ban, who is understandably very angry. He says: “Next time you try to do anything to hurt Elaine, I will kill you with no hesitation.” Gerhalde promises to protect Elaine’s body by any means necessary. As Ban prepares to leave, King asks him if he really wants to leave the Seven Deadly Sins but Ban just replies: “Give my regards to everyone.”
Back to the city, we see Galand causing a lot of damage. He calls out Meliodas and says: “I’ve always to have a good tussle with you.” Meliodas immediately charges Galand using clones. However, the villain is able to eliminate all of them with no effort. It’s obvious that Meliodas has a lot of trouble fighting Galand, who is way stronger than him. Diane tries to help her captain, but she is instantly hit on the head and she falls on the ground. The Seven Deadly Sins are just no match for Galand. The villain now attacks Merlin, however Slader rushes in to help the mage, who appears to be in big trouble. Galand strikes Slader who falls back and looses an arm. Merlin sees no other option as to try to deceive Galand so, that he gets out of the city. She makes a cunning deal with the member of the Ten Commandments and uses a lie. But Galand happens to be the commandment of “truth” and when somebody lies to him, he or she immediately turns to stone. That’s exactly what happens to Merlin. Galand explains, that there is no way to undo this magic. Meliodas is starting to lose his cool. He uses his demon side, which gives him a lot more power. However, Galand strikes him too and Meliodas loses both of his arms. The captain is forced to use more of his demon powers. However, Meliodas tries not to go to the dark side and fights against his demon half. After an epic fight, Galand is able to impale and to kill Meliodas, Slade, Merlin and Diane. After laughing at the corpses, the villain runs off. However, it appears that some of Merlin’s magic is stuck to the armor of the member of the Ten Commandments.

Themes
We learn that the Ten Commandments can eat the souls of people to get there powers back and to get even more overpowered. It’s obvious that the Seven Deadly Sins will struggle a lot to fight the Ten Commandments. I believe it’s the first time I see Meliodas in so much trouble. This episode reminds us, that the Seven Deadly Sins are not undefeatable. Maybe the Ten Commandments are able to do the trick and defeat the Seven Deadly Sins.

Verdict
This was again a very good episode. I really like that the it’s not so obvious how the Seven Deadly Sins will be able to defeat the over powered Ten Commandments. This episode had a lot of drama and a lot of epic fight scenes. I am looking forward to next week.

OMG! Kokoro is such a bad girl! This week’s episode is mainly focused on Mitsuru and Kokoro. Their character development is amazing. I had a grudge against Mitsuru because of his dick-move in episode 3. However, after seeing this episode I think he is in fact a good guy. Adding to that, the Kokoro x Mitsuru ship is sailing strong!

Wow! Wow! Wow! We finally get to see Meliodas very emotional. To be honest, I almost chocked up seeing the heart wrenching scenes with Liz. In my opinion, this was the best and most emotional episode of Nanatsu no Taizai yet. I am so pumped up to see the Seven Deadly Sins develop even more.

This week’s episode was very enjoyable. This iteration of the Seven Deadly Sins was split into two parts. The first half was rather emotional with the back story of Ban and Zhivago and second was more light-hearted. However, at the end, the story got more and more tense, escalating into the confrontation by King of Meliodas and his past with the Ten Commandments.

In this week, we get a Zorome focused episode. I didn’t quite enjoy this episode as much as the last one, which was really epic. However, there was a lot of world building and clarifications on the purpose of adults in this world. Zorome had a lot of screen time in which he had a lot of development.

Nanatsu no Taizai 2 is still going strong with this episode. This wasn’t my favourite episode so far, but it doesn’t mean it won’t get better in the future. I am definitely hyped to see the upcoming epic fight.

The tale of fanservice continues for our mech pilots. Sexuality and nudity are the main themes in this episode. After a wardrobe failure, the girls are trying to keep their distance from the boys. However, Zero Two, being best-girl, is doing everything she can to sabotage all the effort by the girls, which results in formidable and enjoyable situations. Man, I would do terrible things to be Hiro.

In this episode we got again glorious battle scenes, which were expertly animated by Studio Trigger and A1-Pictures. However, with this episode I am quite worried for the future of this series. Hiro’s tumour just vanished, without any consequences for our protagonist. I hope that the characters of this series don’t get a to big of a Plot-Armor, which would ruin the vibe of this 24-episode long anime. Having said that, I am very pleased with this episode and I am looking forward to next week.

Wow, wow, wow! This episode had so much going on. The romantic tensions in the last episodes got finally their pay off. And damn, it was beautiful to see Goro coping with his feelings for Ichigo. I admit, I am completely addicted to this show!

Here we have it! I believe it’s safe to say that Darling in the FranXX is the anime of the season. There were so many things going on in this episode. The romance is better than in most dedicated romance-anime, the cinematography is as good as “Eureka Seven” and the action is breath-taking.
