Happy Friday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! I’m super excited about this week’s Netflix Series of the Week: The Seven Deadly Sins. The Seven Deadly Sins is a Netflix original Anime series that follows the journey of Princess Elizabeth on her quest to find the outlaws and criminals known as the Seven Deadly Sins. On her journey, Elizabeth finds and teams up with a boy and tavern owner of The Boar Head with his companion, a talking pig named Hawk . There’s definitely something interesting about this boy and he almost immediately agrees to help the Princess find the outlaws that she is searching for.
The Holy Knights are the most powerful warriors in the kingdom and protectors of the realm. They are after
the 7 deadly Sins and will stop at nothing to rid the realm from the renegades that have attacked the kingdom long ago. Each Holy Knight has special abilities that are used to control the lands. The series takes an interesting turn when you learn that there are 2 types of Holy Knights, the originals and the New Generation. That’s about all I can tell you without spoiling the series.
“You can lie to yourself all you want, but there’s no way you can fool your own heart!”-Meliodas
The 7 Deadly Sins are The Dragon Sin of Wrath, The Serpent Sin of Envy, The Fox Sin of Greed, The Grizzly Sin of Sloth, The Goat Sin of Lust and The Boar Sin of Gluttony.
I love how the 7 Deadly sins all have abilities and personalities that match their sin. Take for instant Ban who is the Fox Sin of Greed! His personality is that of a greedy individual who will do anything they can (however moral or immoral) in order to get what they want. That’s the personality piece, however, the magical version of his abilities allows him to use clever powers such as “Snatch” in which he can take an opponents item.
- If you love anime with action packed battle scenes that are cut by comedic outbursts.
- Well written story and relatable characters
- 24 episodes to provide a lengthy experience in watching (Season 2 set to be released February 17th, yay!)
- If you are wanting to figure everything out in the first few episodes, as each episode is great about sticking to 1 theme.
- If you’re not fond of blood (can get a little gorey during battle scenes)
- If you’re an emotional wreck like me and can’t handle emotional scenes lol
I highly recommend this anime series as I found myself wanting to binge watch all 24 episodes (sooo glad it wasn’t a 12 episoder 🙂 ) in one sitting. 10 out of 10 would recommend the Seven Deadly Sins, Netflix did an amazing job! Check out the trailer: The Seven Deadly Sins!
Tune in Next Friday for the Santa Clarita Diet(Hint: They’re not eating burgers 😉 ). Leave any comments about this series if you have watched or general thoughts! Also, feel free to tell me if you want a certain series reviewed!
Have an Awesome Day!
