Nanatsu no Taizai Season 2 Episode 1 - Anime Review

Finally we have the first episode of the second season of the beloved anime series “Nanatsu no Taizai”.
It was nice to come back to Nanatsu no Taizai. This was a pretty slow and steady kind of first episode. Really the episode was just getting the story moving again. The episode did end though on a kind of ‘oh crap’ moment with a serious threat returning. Title said it all this week. The demon clan is back and they don’t look like pushovers. This is clearly something that Meliodas has tried to prevent from happening and now things will get serious. Can’t say at this point how powerful the demon clan is, but clearly they have a grudge against Meliodas. So we’re bound to get a good gauge of their threat level in a hurry. Not a great time of course for their revival as King and Ban have gone off on their own for a short time.

Everyone has things going on right now though. Gilthunder and company are just trying to process what the heck happened. From their point of view Dreyfus and Hendrickson were good people who looked out for them or scolded them when they got into trouble. It’s a hard thing to process them going from being such good people to such evil ones. Not a bad idea to look into the truth. All the more good reason to look into it when both are actually still alive. I’d say that Hendrickson looks a lot more confused than Dreyfus who seems to consider these demons his comrades.

This was a solid episode to get us back to the show. Get us reintroduced to everyone, show the revival of the demon clan, and get the characters moving. According to that prophecy trouble is coming for Camelot in a hurry. It wasn’t a mindblowing first episode, but it was what I expected. Things are only going to get better as this season builds up and gets going. I’m glad to have these characters back in motion. This is a strong contender for a show I can cover going into this season. Will see how everything else shakes out, but I’m at the very least going to enjoy watching.

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 episode has a lot of characterisation and interaction between the main characters. We finally see the darker side of our bets girl Zero Tow and it’s apparent, that she is not a good girl.

Nanatsu no Taizai Season 2 Episode 10 - Anime Review

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.

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.

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.

Darling in the Franxx Episode 6 - Anime Review

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!

Darling in the FranXX continues to be my favorite show of this season. The pacing is rather slow but well managed, the imagery and animation are absolutely breathtaking.

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.

This was the first episode of Violet Evergarden to deliver the same level of spectacle and emotional intensity as the premiere. The final moments came almost out of nowhere, even if they have been foreshadowed for a while.
