The "Seven Deadly Sins," a group of evil knights who conspired to overthrow the kingdom of Britannia, were said to have been eradicated by the Holy Knights, although some claim that they still live. Ten years later, the Holy Knights have staged a Coup d'état and assassinated the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth, the king's only daughter, sets out on a journey to find the "Seven Deadly Sins," and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.
Watched the RAW.
The VAs performance are good but I really dig Hawk's voice, it's easier to see the weapons of the Sins compared to the manga panel. This episode was pretty good, hopefully there won't be major drop in quality. The OP and the visuals are OK.
One episode in, well done A-1. I want to watch the episode in subs so I can understand everything but I get the general gist of it from the manga. It does seem like they've ruined some things when it comes to the Sins, which is not good for me at all. I would like to believe they were just guesses on their parts but the art seems all too accurate and clear for it to be that.
The scenes with Meliodas groping Elizabeth were my favourite parts .
Hello guys, I am new here. I've watched first episode, and I think it's worth to watching. For manga reader, (yeah I know it just released first episode) did first episode amuse you? I mean, because it is adapted by A1, I have bad experience for their adaptation (*cough* magi and the other). If you think it's okay, I will hold my plan to read manga (will read manga after anime end).
I have to say the first episode really adapt to manga so much. It's very great.
I love the Opening and Ending song as well as the soundtracks in this episode.
I'm so hype for next episodes.
There are some translation mistakes in the episode 1: 1) Holy Knight instead of Sacred Knight. 2) The Dragon's sin of Wrath instead of Sin of Anger, Sin of Dragon.
I'm really sad because: _ It only has 24 episodes . Don't know if there will be season 2??? But I enjoy this series so much.
_ Until now, I heard that no company sign this anime >"< We have to wait some fansub group.
It's really good idea to watch anime until it ends and then read manga. You should not read manga before watching anime because it can make you lose senses.
Can you tell me how you feeling after you watched episode 1? ( in case you have not read manga yet) .
I heard the only subs out are extremel bad, so I won't bother with that.
Really weird that neither an official nor a known unofficial group has picked the series so far, but I guess it's going to happen at one point. Maybe there even is a group already trying to give it a good translation and it takes longer because they can't simply use Crunchyrolls subs and edit them (at least that's how it's done surprisingly often).
People who HAVE NOT READ THIS MANGA YET ( ALTHOUGH have seen the episode 1 ) , SHOULD NOT SEE this SPOILER.

This series is really good with me. I don't know other people's oppinion but sure that " The Seven Deadly Sins" is not bad.
Hoping some group will get efford to translate this anime as good as they can.

I heard that Netflix has apparently bought the rights to Nanatsu no Taizai anime instead of Crunchyroll and because of that we won't get an official translation out until Netflix puts it on their site in Spring 2015. Now hopefully I heard wrong but it would make some sense as to why there hasn't been an official group to translate it yet. So unfortunately worst case scenario, we may have to deal with just random fan subs until later next spring.
