It is again time for my favourite shonen anime of this winter season of anime 2018. Will Diane be able remember King or any of the Seven Deadly Sins? What will happen to Gowther who, as we know, is the cause for the amnesia of Diane.
First, we see Merlin reappearing but only as an illusion. Meliodas, Elizabeth and Merlin are discussion the probable cause of Dianes amnesia. Merlin suggest, that it might have been caused by the head injury Diane got while fighting the member of the Ten Commandements. Meanwhile, King is trying to get Diane’s memory back. However, Diane is not able to remember anything.
As the Seven Deadly Sins want to examine her, they find out, that Diane ran off. Gowther appears and explains, that he erased her memories to prove a point to Diane. He wants to see if the emotions and feelings stay even though all memories are gone. Obviously, this enrages King. However, King can not hold anything against Gowther, because he did it him self to Diane in the past. Never The less, he hits Gowther very hard and sends him flying. After the beating, the Seven Deadly Sins are starting to look for Diane, who is remembering Giant Clan and is looking for answers.
In a flashback taking place 16 years ago, we learn that the Giant Clan was used by humans for war. Because of that injustice, Dolores and Diane are thinking of leaving the Giant Clan. However, Dolores decide to stay, and so Diane leaves the Giant Clan by herself. On her journey he meets some humans who are teasing her. Meliodas beats the humans and he gets to know Diane.
Back to the Giant Clan, Diane finds out that Dolores died on a mission. Diane sees no other way than to stay with the other giants. During the next battle Matrona gets killed by the humans She was to help. Because of this betrayal, Diane gets her Sin assigned to her.
- Gowhter wants to prove a point. He wants to see if the emotions and feelings stay even though all memories are gone.
- The tragic past of Diane. We learn the reason why Diane has a grudge against humans. As we discussed before, the humans betrayed her and killed Matrona, who was the mother figure to Diane.
- It’s obvious, that Diane confuses Melidoas and King.
This was my least favourite episode of the second season of Nanatsu no Taizai. However, it was still quite enjoyable. I still do not understand, why Matrona didn’t protect herself with an earth wall. Probably it was to show to Diane, that she must get strong and she must get rid of her soft side. Nevertheless, I am still hyped to see next week’s episode.
