What Is Good About Seven Deadly Sins (七つの大罪)
This manga has an incredibly large and vast setting.
Filled with various fantasy creatures, skilled knights and various terrains that our characters explore, it’s a manga that definitely pulls you into the adventure!
The Main Cast
Every single member of the Seven Deadly Sins are extremely likable and memorable.
Upon meeting each member, we soon get to know their backstories and how they help to build the story. You can FEEL the closeness and bonds of the Sins and when reading through each chapter, their characters feel realistic and they play off one another extremely well.
Just get to the part where Meliodas and Ban reunite and you’ll see exactly WHY this deserves an entry.
What Is Bad About Seven Deadly Sins (七つの大罪)
Now usually I gripe about SLOW pacing…
However, I feel that Seven Deadly Sins is often paced a little TOO fast sometimes.
For example, when some of the new characters are introduced, sometimes they’re thrown into the plot without exploring how or WHY they’re there.
Just a small issue but a flaw nonetheless.
An easy-read and adventure-packed story with loveable characters, what’s there NOT to adore? If you’re a fan of fantasy with plenty of action, then this is the manga for you!
