That was a bit surprising, for Melodias to be someone targeted by the “Goddess Clan” whom see him as a threat to the harmony of the four clans, it seems suspiciously shady on so many different levels. Firstly, the voice Ban and Hawk are hearing, does it really belong to a member of the Goddess Clan? Hell knowing the Holy Knights, I wouldn’t be surprised if they set Ban up and are pulling his strings to force him in conflict against his captain, Melodias. Still, I guess since Melodias does have demon power, the clans whom once stood against and defeated the Demon Clan are worried about the threat the Demon Clan poses. But wanting to slay Melodias seems incredibly odd, they should be more concerned with Hendricksen, unless of course the demon power inside Melodias isn’t something that Melodias’s human self can control completely and the danger of it overwhelming Melodias is the driving force behind the Goddess Clans request.
I was hoping Elizabeth would be able to escape on her own, but I suppose when your opponent is able to teleport, it does make it kind of hard to stay away from them. With the ritual to resurrect the Demon Clan about to take place and with Elizabeth on the verge of being sacrificed, the climax of the arc really is shaping up to be an extremely thrilling one. Will King and Co. make it in time to save Elizabeth, will Melodias and Arthur defeat Hendricksen and Gilthunder, and will Ban really lose his life? And what about Margaret, what choice will she make now that freedom is laid out before her?
How unexpected, big developments after big developments, it is shocking seeing just how much was set-up in these two chapters! The Goddess, Giant, Fairy and Human clans united in the past to seal the Demon Clan, and Hendricksen on his way to reviving the Demon Clan in order to create an era in which the Holy Knights can prosper with battle, he manages to secure Elizabeth, the final piece to releasing the Demon Clan seal, thanks to one of his knights. Melodias, Ban and Gowther rampage at the Britannia Kingdom until they sense the presence of the King of Camelot, King Arthur on the opposite side of the Kingdom arriving with a massive army. I am honestly incredibly curious to see how the story develops from here out and where it would likely end up after these recent events.
Nanatsu no Taizai (by Suzuki Nakaba) also known as The Seven Deadly Sins tells the story of a group of criminals whom ten years prior to the start of the story had been accused of plotting to overthrow the Kingdom. Shortly after the Kingdoms enforcement division, the Holy Knights, launched an offensive against the group of criminals, known as the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’, that group disintegrated and went their separate ways. Now ten years later and the start of the story, a girl appears suddenly seeking to reunite the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ together to help combat the Holy Knights whom have deviated from their path of protection, order and peace.
