10 was pretty close to the manga again if i recall right. Love helm voice is about how I read it as to. King was the comic straight man over Hawk this episode I think.

Saw this on the news. There was a 3DS trailer:

Meliodas makes a fine soldier against the Titans.

11 was another epic episode of epic shonen overthetop run on epic-ness. Yeah I like the show. They blended a fore shadow into the show about Gowther that was not in the manga so this might vary heavy soon.

@takashichea: Think DBZ power level an thats what Meliodas can have so the Titans would not stand a chance.

12 was another almost perfect manga adaption. It went by fast it for me. But it reminded me a bit of Bleach early episodes when the power ramp up was drastic but with a visible tell. Hope this show goes on to a second season. Well really multi seasons. Its one of the few shonen that seems to have legs an has done well in the ratings. Dam shame this was not simulcast state side.

I caught up to you. @Marshal Victory:

I swear I didn't recognize Guila or Jericho. The referee was a good twist. It's odd a mine killed off Veronica but it didn't kill Hawk who may possess plot armor.

Our heroes have finally suffer defeat.

I don't like Meliodas' blank look. The Shonen demon cliche is a bit common. Ichigo has his demon, Naruto did too. Meliodas' tattoo looks awesome, but it didn't match up with that look.

@takashichea: I remember complaining about the Demon cliche to you.

I also remember reading Veronica's death in the manga and for a bit I really disliked Elizabeth's character because of how she treated Veronica beforehand.

And without spoiling anything, Hawk's toughness has actually been referenced throughout the series, like Gil electrocuting him then kicking him out of sight. He isn't strong like the Deadly sins but needless to say he should be able to take more than the likes of Veronica, a normal human.

@taichokage:

I do remember your conversations with Katmic on the Shonen demon cliche. It was the first time I heard about and I finally realize how common it was in the shows I watch. There are shows you and Katmic pointed that didn't have it. I loved Ichigo's demon the most. He has the best, scary design. Which reminds me to catch up to Bleach.

Hawk is the most abused character in the show. I was surprised they killed off Veronica. She seems such an important person with a role. Boom, she dies. First time, I see someone die in a show. It came out of nowhere. I know the series had deaths as seen in Meliodas' and others' past. It seem natural to me. I'm weird.

@takashichea: He really is. But in fact Meliodas is the worst perpetrator of this. I actually really like Hawk's character though, to the point that I value his presence in the story more than some of the Deadly Sins and Holy Knights. He provides humor in trying to be serious and although rare, he has a chance here and there to shine. As for Veronica, it was for me the most heart wrenching moment in the series possibly even now as an up to date manga reader. It doesn't move me like Magi did, but Taizai has it's moments.

@taichokage:

Maybe the anime didn't develop her or show much of her for me to feel some sort of pity. I only got to see Veronica for two or three episodes. Episode 12 was her spotlight. I got to read the manga to see the differences. Hawk is a great comic relief character, my favorite character next to Happy.

@takashichea: Thats actually a good comparison. Happy an Hawk bot serve as comic straight men to lighten the shows. Thing with Hawk is this his mother is the giant green pig that carries the Boar Hat. So he magically tuff maybe on par with Giants but not strong at all.

@taichokage: Thinking of the Oni Cliche type of things in anime its a given when you have such a rich history of so many spirits in that culture. Nothing screams magic out of control like Oni. Bleach is another good comparison to this anime, tho not in tone but power ramp up. Sure you can compare supernatural aspects but its that power ramp up that both do . Tho I would argue that Seven Deadly Sins (SDS) ramps up much faster.

If it was a Dungeons & Dragons Campaign we would refer to it as rich magic world campaign. The divide from haves an have not's in power is vast.

@Marshal Victory:

Oni magic huh? That's another angle I haven't seen yet. It does make sense. Uncontrollable magic, emotions, and the will to survive and to protect one another.

Post by Marshal Victory (2,768 posts) See mini bio Level 14

@takashichea: His is bit different. Hes on another level to the rest of the Sins. In the next two or so episodes if they follow the manga as close then you will see how vast his power is. Serious ramp up of power potential. An I agree his tattoo is solid. All of them are well designed but his has meaning the dragon eating its own tail. Anger , Wrath that consumes it self.

Show does have some serious levels of interest in it for sure.

episode 13 was pretty good. Kind of showing off what I said about the increasing power levels. Also I have read a bit farther in the manga than this but I have a theory about our Captain. Hes not part demon hes part dragon. Or part something else thats not demon. Future epsidoes may show what the manga showed. Which may back up my theory.

But for a ever increasing over the top power ranking festival the arc was fun.

Ep. 13

I feel Meliodas' change wasn't so emotional. There wasn't enough fuel and justification for his demon self. Seeing Diane's rage was cool.

Out of the Seven Deadly Sins, Ban's character has the most growth and background reveal. Didn't think the guy with the green hair and glasses was an important character.

Episode 14 was a big change from the manga . It gets to the fight but how it gets to it is very different, but used the bully trope still. Not sure why this was done as it really did not save time. Tho in one respect it did lesson animation.

Episode 15 was about where I left off the manga when I heard it was gonna be a anime I stopped reading. The battle was less over all than the manga . less people fighting an less show of power difference. So from here on out I can not say how different this is from the manga. But I can say over 15 episodes it was well above 2/3rd of the manga accurate.
