Anime adaptations that leave stuff from the manga out really irritate me, mostly because i can't help but think about how people that do not read the manga won't be able to appreciate the story fully because the director is choosing to stray from the clearly superior source material. The Diana/King/Helbrum stuff was done far better in the Nanatsu no Taizai manga, and i remember the passing of time not only made sense but it was used as a surprise or sorts; because you expected hours and days to have passed only to learn that it had been years and even decades each time you flipped a page..

That being said, i still enjoyed the episode. In fact i am surprised at how much of the entire Nanatsu no Taizai anime is so enjoyable. The fact that i read the manga and know what's going to happen doesn't even bother me. The last few episodes have been really impressive (though the Gowther bits didn't exactly workout). We need more anime like this. I actually look forward to each new episode.

I agree with everything.

@taichokage: and

Yeah, I'm one of those folks. It's more of a habit of not reading the manga and getting surprised. I used to read Fairy Tail head, but seeing everything come out in the anime. I didn't enjoy it as much. I felt I was more critical on the adaptation of the manga for every flaw.

It's one of those times, you get lost. I had fun getting lost (Not like Zoro. Bad joke there), but it's good to see where things went wrong. You go back and rewatch it or read the manga. I haven't read the manga counterpart yet due to wiki conflicts. I worked all over the place to be honest. I don't know where to start anymore.

Got news on the show. It will run for 24 episodes, ending on March 29.

The official website for popular anime voice actress/singer Maaya Sakamoto announced today that she will voice Merlin, a member of The Seven Deadly Sins and the Sin of Gluttony, in the ongoing TV anime adaptation of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins manga. The A-1 Pictures-produced anime will run for 24 episodes till March 29. And as reported, Sakamoto is already scheduled to join its following anime program The Heroic Legend of Arslan as Falangies from April 5.

@takashichea: Hmm. I was thinking 25 or 26. They're  going to cover over 100 chapters in 24 episodes. I know this because the arc doesn't end until that point. Like I said previously, that's more than 4 chapters to an episode. Such speed is strange. It's clear they wish to end with the Kingdom Infiltration Arc. But to build up enough content for season 2 (which will be made I'm sure based on it's smashing success), they'll need approximately 100 more chapters which will take almost 2 years from this point. My wager was Autumn of 2016.  
I remember hearing somewhere that Nakaba wished to make the story into 3 major Arcs, with only 1 having just ended. That would mean 2 more seasons over the next few years I would imagine.
And nice info on Merlin. I envisioned somebody else but thah's not a bad pick.

The speed you spoke of remind me of Magi. I was hoping Magi would slow down. They stopped after Zangan Dungeon arc for season 1 which was chapter 115. They cover over 100 chapters for the first season. They did a 2nd season which ended around 198 chapters.

I feel for this series. At least, they are stopping maybe for a separate cour. I wish Akame ga Kill did the same thing.

I have a feeling decisions like this are informed by financial matters. Had Deadly Sins began 10 years ago, it would probably be still ongoing, along with series like Magi. They can make it enjoyable even at the current pace but 27 or even more episodes would have been better.
