Nanatsu no Taizai Season 2 Episode 5 - Anime Review
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.
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.
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.
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.
