The first season of The Seven Deadly Sins had everything I ever wanted in an anime. It had action, adventure, comedy, and brutally powerful characters.
Then, I was horribly disappointed by what Netflix referred to as “Season 2”. This was an OVA. And just like most OVAs, it left me feeling underwhelmed.
Now, we have a full 24-episode season. I really wanted to watch it in batches of a few episodes at a time. But I couldn’t. Instead, I binged the entire season in 48 hours.
Clearly, I like this show and I like it a lot. Keep reading to find out why this season was so good and why it might actually be better than the first. This is The Seven Deadly Sins season 3 review from The Digital Worm.
This man kicks all the ass, gropes all the boobs, and doesn’t care about names. He’s short, boyish, and by far the most powerful “good guy” in the show. He’s an amazing leader, able to conquer anyone who thinks ill of his character.
It takes just one action or one word for everyone to fall in love with him. To me, this is huge when it comes to storytelling. Your main character has to be likable if you want your project to be successful. Let’s compare this to three of the most successful anime of all time: The Big Three.
Ichigo, Luffy, and Naruto were all young and likable. Even when people didn’t like them, they were able to change their minds through their sincere words and actions. Meliodas is no different.
The captain of The Seven Deadly Sins is just as fair and honest as he is strong. This is why many viewers may be a bit disturbed by what happens towards the end of the season. Don’t worry, I’m not going to spoil anything.
Most of the characters in this show have seedy and mysterious pasts. This is one of the things that I personally love about the show.
However, despite all of the hardships and terrible decision making, they all end up becoming better people. I love this kind of storytelling. Even if you aren’t creating lovable or even likable characters, you still need to make them grow. They have to become something new. And in the case of villains, they need a reason for being bad.
No one is born and immediately becomes a jerk from the second they leave the womb. We all have a story and a journey.
As someone watching the show, I want to be there as these mysteries unravel. I want to know the heart-wrenching truths and pasts that plague and haunt the good guys and the bad guys. And sometimes, I want the bad guy to win.
This is yet another thing I loved about The Seven Deadly Sins season 3. There are wins and losses on both sides. And the set-up for the next season was as ideal as you can get for an anime.
The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3 Review – Questions and Answers
When season one ended, I think most of us had way more questions than we had answers.
Sure, the heroes saved the day. But what next? We didn’t get much from the show.
But this season, the creators did things a bit differently. Towards the end of the last episode, they took some time to let the characters hang out and discuss what all had happened, how it was going to affect them, and how they needed to proceed.
This may seem small and simple to some viewers, but for me, it got me hyped for the next season. I can’t wait to see what is in store for Meliodas, Ban, and the rest of the gang. Check out the show on Netflix. If you love The Big Three, then you will be pleasantly surprised by everything The Seven Deadly Sins has to offer.
