Just finished "Seven Deadly Sins". I liked all of the characters, except for Meliodas and Elizabeth, who I really felt were bland and detracted from the series as a whole. Her personality is "Gets molested a lot" and his personality is "generic cocksure protagonist. Diane, Ban, King, Hawk, and everyone else was fun, and I wish the series had just been about them.
I just finished the series today as well, and quite enjoyed it. King and Diane were the characters I enjoyed the most, their backstory was pretty touching and their fighting styles and attacks were the most interesting of the group.
Will probably pick up the manga too, though I hear the anime took a lot of liberties.
Diane a cute.
One of these days we'll get that blatantly set-up powerup arc and maybe then she can get past that jobbing problem.
The first time I saw the word "power level" I was like "for fuck sake, are you fucking kidding me not that bullshit again that will never matter"
Melodias literally trained for like a day or two to unlock his sealed power and beat the crap out of the guy you posted as a friendly greeting. He and the other sins got destroyed by that same guy a few chapters earlier.
TLDR: power levels are bullshit
Worf effect, my man
The easiest way to make an enemy look threatening is to let them beat the shit out the biggest, strongest protagonist without effort.
The fact that she tends to be the first to charge into close combat contributes to the pattern. There's also the issue that, aside from Mother Catastrophe, any synergies between her geomancy and her Sacred Treasure are still a ~~secret~~
When will Nakaba show what happened with her again?
It's been months since we saw her and that Matrona
that's OBVIOUSLY the fat giant girl that was alive and trained and got that way
They always have been. Everytime somebody super powerful is revealed you never get a good resolution to their defeat. Galan literally shit all over the sins and then they go to the hyperbolic time chamber for like 5 chapters and suddenly melodias can kick his ass easily. When the sins were revealed I basically said "yep the sins are fucked because these guys are too powerful", and then the powerups happened. Feels underwhelming every time it happens. Take HxH for example, the fucking ants were gods and could easily kill a high star hunter from like 100 miles away after sensing him for a split second. When they were killed by a rag tag group of shitters and a nuke it just didn't feel right.
WHY DID YOU GUYS NOT TELL ME ABOUT THIS MANGA
ITS SO FUCKING GOOD
FUCK I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START ITS SO PERFECT HOLY FUCK
DIANE IS A CUTE
As much as I enjoy Diane, her nature as primary waifu bait would make her presence distracting in the middle of this development arc.
Now the issue is giving ample time for her own character development in some way despite being completely absent from the recent plot progression.
THE POWER LEVELS MEAN NOTHING
THEY ARE JUST A JOKE
DONT YOU SEE IT
THE SERIE IS SO GOOD THAT IT KNOWS ITS TROPES AND MOCKS THEM WHILE RUSING US
>yfw that's not even his final form
>yfw when it's noon (aka final form) he turns in worse white knight than the guy in m'lance n'masques
Powerlevels are good, because they cue you, the viewer, as to whether or not the protagonist is expected to win.
For an example of why this is important, look at Mondaiji, where our protagonist spends the first eleven episodes breezing everyone, and then in episode twelve we're expected to buy that he's not going to do the same to the end-of-series boss, and we just don't because he's spent the entire series under no credible threat whatsoever.
This is where powerlevels come in: sure it's cheap, but if it's announced before hand that "Holy Shit! This is the first time in the whole series I've seen someone with the same powerlevel", we the audience now know that the protagonist might lose, and the situation is different from all the other times in the past when he walked it.
>powerlevels are not good
What the fuck, you people were complaining at first that you never knew how strong the main cast were, and how the author is pulling those asspulls during the demons arc since they were no powerlevels and now you want them gone?
Fucking retards yo.
but wouldn't you need other people to glamorize you?
I'd imagine our newest guy's running gag is that he gets easily flattered and tells people to continue praising him while flexing in jojo poses
>power levels good
>galan stomps the entire sin team alone
>he has 9 other fucking team mates
>lol but the sins weren't at full power time to train under 100x earths gravity
>galan is fodder all of a sudden
Because her father was taken in as an experiment, forced to kill his unit, and then abandoned, leaving her to fend for herself and her brother as a child from people who suspected her to be the daughter of a traitor and thus a traitor herself. She fought to convince herself that she was strong to escape her father's shadow, even though she still loved him. Zeal was the only thing she could trust in her life, and her only connection to her father she still had.
It proves he's a big fan of Dragon Ball. "Power levels" are a homage to that, but they don't work like those in DB.
If you're autistic about numbers representing stats, then that sounds like a personal problem.
Watched the two first episodes and don't think I'm gonna bother with the third. The music is bad, the animation is meh, the voices are obnoxious, the main characters are crap, and half the characters look like potatoes with wigs on.
>Diane will never smother you with her cow utters
why even live?
