@bigz007:

I check all of the ANN news. I didn't see any episode count or how many cours we will get. My best guess will be 2 cour (24 episodes) since we are almost near 10 volumes and about 89 chapters so far.

@takashichea: Is it just me or the manga was dropping in quality lately? I hope anime will be on Fairy Tail level though...

You can ask @katmic: or

I would say its gotten more hack and slash, very akin to Bleach. The thing is though that just like Bleach the action scenes are Nanatsu's forte. I would like to get deeper into the plot though. Great action alone isn't enough, which is why I liked the first 2 years of the thousand year blood war arc. Kubo implemented the most plot side SS arc. However he's also been just hack and slash for the last few months.

@taichokage: Agree on Bleach, the first part of the war was great. Now however each new chapter is just a new sternritter for the heroes to fight. We know there are 26 sternritters; but like the arrancar, i don't know why Kubo thinks we need to see each and everyone of them along with their special abilities. We are probably going to get another year of sternritter fights. While not totally terrible it is getting frustrating.
 
Nanatsu no Taizai still works for me at this moment

If it's not like D. Gray-Man or Hunter x Hunter's lax drawing, I'm fine with the manga's quality. Attack on Titan's manga has some really rough and ugly manga art style. For Seven Deadly Sins, it's great. I just haven't got used to the weird eyes.

@takashichea: D. Gray Man art is a lot more consistent than the likes of Hunter x Hunter. I remember catching up to both series back to back in '09. Even though I must say HxH's story is better, I don't think it's art can compare to D. Gray Man's in general. But there is one thing they definitely have in common.

Hiatus!

@taichokage:

Speaking of hiatus, I sense another similarity. Both hiatus came from the author's injuries or illness. I recall Katsura Hoshino had wrist injuries and some sickness. It's hard being a mangaka nowadays. I heard Oda has 4 hours of sleep every day.

For fans, we can only support them in spirit and wish them good health. I remember I wrote Manga Series Coming Back From the Dead for certain manga series coming out of hiatus. I should probably make a hiatus manga guide for Anime Vice just like the Manga Series Ending in 2014.

@takashichea: That would be fun. Although it's recently started up again, Berserk the ancient gem of Seinen manga also goes on hiatus fairly often, as does another of the most successful Seinen titles Bastard!. Shame. They are among my all time favorites.

Seven Deadly Sins is confirmed with 24 Episodes

Launched in 2012, Nakaba Suzuki's shounen adventure The Seven Deadly will hit volume 11 October 17th. That said, looks like the anime, or at least this run of it, will run 24, according to Amazon Japan and Animate listings that have three episodes on volumes 1-6 and two on 7-9.

Pilot was pretty good. Very close to the manga from what i can recall. They kept Meliodas as a pervert! The manga had this epic over arch feel to it that reminded me of One Piece at times. Its a fantasy setting an just don't care. Its over the top. Power levels escalate beyond what you think they should be. But thats part of the fun with shonen , over the top tales of fun to watch fights.

Still waiting to see if this anime has a legal simulcast. Otherwise, I can't watch it. Hoping CR picks it up. If FUNi picks it up, I"m okay with that. Wait on HULU which is a week behind FUNi.
