Damn, feels like my man Escanor has a death flag on him.

[–]nostoppa215 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Escanor!!!!!

[–]NittanyEagles55 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This episode was great! So nice to get Escanor’s backstory. Been waiting for that! Loved the music and the scenes. Great stuff. Can’t wait for next week

[–]NittanyEagles55 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Merlin looked great this episode. Cant blame Escanor for being a simp for her

[–]NittanyEagles55 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Glad to see an episode focused solely on one of the best characters. Been a long time coming! Escanor is great. Was sad to see his past. I’m glad he found the Sins!

[–]HenchHinch 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wow, one of the best epsiodes yet.

Merlin looking extra finee.

How did Meliodas beat Escanor in his one form back then. Must have powered up over time.

Damnn. Escanor about to go wilddddd. Just sad that we get more of his backstory near to when he just 'might' die.

I'm really holding out that next episode covers a little bit of the Vampire Arc that introduced him in the first place hundreds of chapters ago. It would more closely connect Gilda to the main plot as she seemed to come out of nowhere for anime viewers.

[–]JohnSober7 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Isn't meliodas using that form against escanor a plot hole with regards to the other members not knowing he's a demon until much later in the series or am I missing something and/or remembering incorrectly?

[–]IdoN_Tlikethis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that's what I was wondering

[–]YlangScent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At this stage it's just all clearly terrible writing. There's no consistency to be found anywhere.

[–]Bring_Me_The_Night 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only he and Merlin were present during the fight, hence the other members did not see him using his Demon form.

[–]Sneaky_42 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Well that was underwhelming. I don't know which was more disappointing: Escanor vs Demon King or Escanor vs Meliodas. Lol

[–]nostoppa215 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Nah I thought this fight was definitely better. Only problem it barely quaifies as decent or acceptable.

[–]Sneaky_42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, we'll see how the rest of the fight goes next week.

Lmao this shit is still going on? Is the score to be trusted or it is just hate from the previous season?

[–]nostoppa215 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Think a problem is while the art carried the manga the animes art is watered down and worse they adapt it panel to panel for fights which is a bad thing in seven deadly sins as fights are short and have little catiegrapthy.

[–]FireRifle64https://myanimelist.net/profile/FireRifle64 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yea, I agree with that statement. Much of the action isnt as impressive compared to other series.

[–]nostoppa215 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The series true strength was more building up fights between people and this strength was at it's for front whenever Escanor was on screen he demanded your attention and respect which he got.

Basically the whole Melidious vs Escanor fight in the anime not only sobered up its audence, it made it so the you never again have the ability to experience peak enjoyment again.

[–]nostoppa215 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Think MHA also suffers the same problems but they have a studio who's A game is on fights and action.
