    Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter Reviews
    Mangahelpers will be posting chapter reviews for featured manga, Nanatsu no Taizai included, on the forum homepage. Each chapter, the first submitted review will be used. Preferably reviews are to be submitted as soon as possible and before the release of the following chapter. Subsequent reviews will be linked in the published review, and are also to be completed in this thread. Your permission will be sought before your review is published or linked.

    The 24 hour spoiler rule does not apply in this thread. However this is for reviews only. Any discussion about reviews can be done in the chapter thread, or the Hangout thread (keep in mind the 24 hour spoiler rule applies in that thread).

    Review standards
    • Minimum 500 words
    • English language. Standard spelling, grammar and punctuation apply - enough so it can be easily read.
    • No emoji, slang, swearing. All forum etiquette rules apply.
    • Refrain from using pictures. A picture may be incorporated should the need arise.


    What should be included in the review?

    A concise summary of the events within the chapter; and how said events are interconnected with the story. Aspects such as character actions/development, art, tone etc can all be subjects of the review. Any points can be appraised (was it good? was it bad?), though it is expected to be reasonable and/or supported by chapter/manga content. The review should be finished with a concluding paragraph, with some forewords regarding possible future events. Feel free to add/omit any of these recommendations as you see fit, as well as adding your own perspective and character to the review.


    Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

    NNT Chapter 204 Review

    Beginning

    The chapter begins with the Demon Army approaching the Fairy forest.All Giants and Fairies are shocked by this.King says if this is according to Ludociel's plan to Gerheade.Diane realises that this may be there trial which King also agree.Then Meliodas rushes to them and asks them to protect Elizabeth and others while he negotiates with the 10C.King and Diane protests as this is a suicide misson.But Meliodas says that if this war continues then all the Clans will be wiped out.Diane comedically wants to go which forces King to go too.I laughed at this part.But he realises if he leaves what will happen to Fairy forest?He looks at Gerhead.I think this is how Gloxinia left his sister.But Rou comes to protect Fairy forest in place of Gloxinia.King calls him Ban which may foreshadow that he has some connection with Ban as some of us suspect.Maybe he loved Gerheade who knows?And i laughed when King said he is better than Ban.

    Daine points out that Demon Clan stopped in their tracks?Meliodas looks shocked.

    Elizabeth appears
    It is Elizabeth who appeared to stop them.She calls herself Goddess Elizabeth.Merascylla mockingly asks her if she has come to offer her soul to them?Galan in an idiotic way asks if he can eat her soul?Monspiet remembers if he has heard this name somewhere before indicating that the name Elizabeth is not well known in Demon Clan.Fraudrin asks the Demon soldiers what's wrong with them.Monspiet says that thousands of their brethren had vanished mysteriously here.Derriere continues that they caught a slight faint of huge amount of power which only Demon Clan can percieve.Elizabeth asks them to retreat as Ludociel is planning something.Monspiet recognizes Ludociel as one of the 10C.Derririe asks Elizabeth why they should believe her?Elizabeth replies there is no reason.But she wants to end the war.
    Fraudrin realises she is the one who turned the Demon Army back.
    Demon Soldiers replied she is the one who sent them back.Seeing her eyes they lost all will to fight.Derriereasks Elizabeth to release their prisoners then they will believe her.Elizabeth agrees and will do whatever she can.Then Derririe continues asks for the traitor Meliodas which Elizabeth refuses.We saw a small panel of Meliodas and co. coming.She says that Meliodas is her everything.Monspiet realises that she is the one who made Meliodas defect.Derririe agrees and says it is a deal.

    This signifies that Elizabeth did not know what Ludociel and others were planning.So they didn't care to even inform Elizabeth.
    Killing of Hostages
    But then Ludociel thanks Elizabeth for buying time which made 10C think she tricked them.Ludociel activates the Ark.Everyone notices it.Meliodas realises what Ludociel was doing and calls him a bastard.Monspiet says inside the ark their bodies and magic is eaten and they are left in a state neither alive nor dead.Merascylla comments they are civillians not Soldiers.Derriere calls for her sister who calls her name.Then Ludociel kills them by making the Ark give out a huge light.All the 10C get angry and Derriere hits Elizabeth and renders her unconscious.But all the Four Archangels arrive and all the furious 10C are ready to fight them.The chapter ends here.

    My analysis
    I think it was such a great chapter.Because of Ludociel a great chance to end the war was lost.10C are justified to kill the Four Archangels.

    Next chapter prediction
    I think next chapter Meliodas and King & Diane will appear when the battle between the 10C and Archangels reach a height.Maybe they will accuse Meliodas of being involved in the killing.Maybe Meliodas will fight Archangels.I think this massacre was one of the reasons why Dolor and Gloxinia joined the Demon Clan.Maybe DK and Zeldris will appear soon.Looking forward for next chapter.

    Since @Gallon asked so nicely, I will be doing this week's Nanatsu No Taizai review.

    Nanatsu no Taizai 206: The Beast Roars

    Summary:
    Chapter 206 begins with the main man Gowther continuing where he left off in chapter 205, mind jacking Nerobasta and pretending to be Ludociel, one of the 4 Archangels. He commands her to lead to him to the Celestial Realm, to which she happily obliges.

    The scene shifts to Ludociel flying towards the battle with the 10 Commandments, while Nerobasta drops some exposition for the audience, giving us insight on Ludociel. She describes Ludociel as the strongest Archangel and describes how he abandoned his friends and family in order to assure victory for the Goddess Clan in this Holy War, basically, throwing away everything he had. Gowther reveals that, he too, knows of such a man, whom we can assume refers to Meliodas. It should be noted, however, that Nerobasta is biased towards Ludociel, so while Gowther is making her tell the truth, her truth might be embellishing Ludociel's capabilities. There is still one more Archangel left to be revealed and their strength is unknown at the time.

    Nerobasta and Gowther finally arrive at the gate to the Celestial Realm, however, there is someone else in tow. The sexy, sexy Merascylla, who makes her presence known by critiquing the design of the gate to the Celestial Realm. Gowther asks how the prison rescue went and Merascylla explains that it was a trap. Well, she tries to explain. Gowther does his mind reading thing and basically reads the rest of the information in her mind, much to her annoyance. He learns of the other 2 Archangels on the battlefield and explains to Merascylla that Ludociel is also on his way to the battlefield. Gowther then states that the 10 Commandments are at a disadvantage as the scene shifts back outside, where the battle between the Archangels and the 10 Commandments continues on.

    The fight goes back in forth, but the 10 Commandments manage to hold their own against the 2 Archangels. However, this comes to an end with the arrival of Ludociel, who easily wrecks the 3 fighters. Nerobasta comments that the 10 Commandments are nothing but beast and that Ludociel is the Celestial Realm's greatest hunter, stating that Ludociel never fails at a hunt and basically implying that the 10 Commandments are screwed. Merascylla then calls her stupid and tells her that those 10 Commandments on the battlefield aren't your average beasts.

    On the battlefield, Derriere and Monspiet suddenly rip out 6 of their hearts and crushes them in their hands, apparently performing some strange ritual. Merascylla explains that the ritual, which is only available to a select few, transforms the demon into the "Indura", beasts that are "the evilest existance". Even Garan flees from the field once he sees this. Once the ritual is done, Derriere and Monspiet are now changed into more demonic forms, with Derriere becoming some sort of Scorpion Crab Woman and Monspiet becoming Slenderman's multilimbed cousin. The chapter ends with an unimpressed Ludociel getting...chopped? I guess? In the the face by Derriere.

    Review:
    This chapter was decent enough. Everything is progressing along nicely as we begin to get drops of information about the final two clans. Nakaba has basically made this a full blown flashback arc however, which is a bit lame. I felt that him directly involving King and Diane in it was the more interesting aspects of this arc and why I wasn't cool with it at the start, but since they aren't around, well, it's just a flashback. While they are obviously coming back, it would've been nice to keep it from their perspective, rather than abandon it midway.

    The Indura forms are a nice addition and leave something to look forward to, however, I wish they would've kept Monspiet's and Derriere's forms hidden. Instead, I wish we would've gotten this reveal from Merascylla and Garan, the two Commandments who have already been taken care of in present time. In my opinion, it takes away from Monspiet's and Derriere's future fight as we know what their trump card already is. It would've also showed how lucky the Sins were in present time since Merascylla and Garan wouldn't have gotten a chance to activate it, still keeping the threat of the Commandments somewhat in tact.

    A small nitpick I have is that Gowther making himself look like Ludociel was pointless. She only recognized Gowther as Ludociel for the first page, but then she immediately treats Gowther as if he were another person...which he is, but she shouldn't know that. Later in the chapter she directly addresses Gowther and Merascylla, while still under Gowther's control. Would've been more interesting if she were still under the impression that Gowther was Ludociel and Merascylla just waltzed in and the two started having a conversation.

    In conclusion, it wasn't a bad chapter. It was action packed and had a decent reveal at the end, but I felt it could've been smoothed out a bit better for the grander story. Chapter 207 will hopefully mark the arrival of King and Diane, so they can be folded back into things. I also suspect that Gowther and Merascylla will meet some opposition on their end as well. Things should be getting ready to turn sour in the forest and we still need the remaining 10 Commandments to show up.
