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.

Synopsis


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.

Themes


- 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.

Verdict


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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
