Well, ban is the only one with an actual backstory so far so it is hard not to like him a bit more than the others. I am still somewhat unconvinced by his ability though, it seems to be either too hax or too useless so far. Not sure which.... I guess my favorite would be king. I have really enjoyed his fights and the mystery around him keeps him interesting for the most part. Only thing I don't like about him is that we have yet to see him use his ability which is supposed to work wonders with his sacred treasure. I really want to know what keeps him from using his true strength too.
Ban for now. He's the only one we know the most about and the fact that he's just a total badass in almost every panel is a plus.
We need to reset it and add Gowther .
I've reset the poll and added Gowther to it. Please only choose one.
Added Merlin and Escanor.
Still voting Gowther .
Ban has been demoted from my favorites list. I'm really starting to dislike him. Actually dislike is too strong a word. His recent actions definitely don't sit well with me though, as well as his demeanor after the fact.
It's a tie between Gowther and King for #1, with Merlin and Escanor bringing following them up in interest. Mel and Diane aren't bringing anything new to the table. Since I can only vote for one though, I'll keep it going with King.

Nah, Ban is still my favourite; I'm holding on the tiniest hopes for him. But I'd like to add that Merlin is creeping ever so close to that top spot. She's been such a breath of fresh air since her introduction; her knowledge of magic is huge and she is intriguing.
BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN all the way. But I'm starting to like Merlin, as someone already pointed out she is the Robin from OP of the Seven deadly sins. Gowther is a little too creepy for me, but he has his funny moments.
Escanor was not even properly presented in the story and he has already one vote .
escanor is the last missing sin right? voting for Merlin.
The dude resembles in my opinion Grimmjow, not only they have some similarities in appearance but both of them are badass, powerful, arrogant and cocky, i consider though Ban to be a better character because he has better story, he can be a troll and unpredictable at the same time, Ban is simply the best character of the series, he already has a harem, Elaine and Jericho , well in Jericho's case, she wants him so badly, it is so one sided for now, lmao
i don't have a problem if Ban x Jericho becomes canon in the future, they kinda fit together
The second character with the best story in the series, he is a very cool character with a tragic past too, he and Ban can make a very awesome tag team, aside their differences in their arguments, they have some respect for each other
Pretty, strong and has a charming personality
She seems so mysterious and tricky, not to mention she is way too pretty
I find Meliodas cool only when he fights, aside that, he is really boring

For me it has to be king. He has a truly tragic story and he can't simply catch a break. And when he wants to he manages to be unspeakably badass. Ban is a character I don't buy. I used to like him more but the more I think about him I don't buy it. Ban is the sort of dude who is intentionally and consistently an asshole. And yet when elaine met him she made the point that there was no malice in him and there was something deep and whatnot about him. It does not make a shred of sense and if it does it only means that ban is being an asshole because he somehow objectively reasons it is the way to be, not out of malice. And we are still talking about the guy who stole toys from children (unless there is some backstory to that) and tried to kill meliodas. Ban is too convenient a character, he is an asshole to everyone and somehow the manga makes the point he is a saint. King is more interesting in that he tries his best to be a better person and do right by others but fails, sometimes for things beyond his control. Ironically, king is more human than ban that way.
Diane is cool although she is too normal. She seem like a teenage girl who can't get over her looks. Well, that is precisely her character in a way. She needs to be more developed. Meliodas is just boring. He is basically superman, he is already as strong and as perfect as he is ever going to need. The only thing he needs to overcome challenges is to use more of his already seemingly infinite strength. Every description of his power has made the point that he is simply overwhelmingly stronger than anyone else in the manga. He even fought 3 GHK class people and did not hold his ground. And he does not even have a sacred treasure. Gowther is just meh. I don't think he can really be liked or really related to because he is basically a robot. He does not have feelings of his own and only displays them when getting into a story or something. He is a fun character but not "favorite" material. Merlin needs to be more developed. I am hoping escanor will be a cool character.
