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.

It's not over yet, except you mean the anime then shame on you.
Melodias gets his development. I can't really say I hate any character in this show.
>>
>>133139700
The only positive thing I can say about it is that at least shounen has advanced beyond ripping off Dragonball to ripping off Fairy Tail.
>>
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"
>>
>>133143061
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~~

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.

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.

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.

>>133147998
But what's his powerlevel?

>>133148046

Stopped reading right there.

Seriously though, using numbers to create instant tension is almost insulting.

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.

Not really.
He KNOWS he's the best, he doesn't need to convince anyone else of that.
He's like Gil.
Merlin is his Enkidu.

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.
>>
>>133148589
It's not a homage. See you in chapter 453 in which Meliodas' powerlevel is 994239423434
>>
>>133148526
I'm obviously talking about when he goes full SUN mode dude.
When there's no sun he has the complete opposite personality, except for his Merlin admiration.

They are already taking the "let's increase our powerlevel" route instead of coming with a good plan to defeat the demon clan, stop shilling this shit.

Oh fuck off, you retard.
>>
>>133148736
That doesn't prove anything, it's not like the author will just drop powerlevels in the next chapter, it's already too late
>>
>>133149104
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.
>>
Didn't Meliodas admit Sunguy is stronger than him?
>>
>>133146185
Destroyed an entire castle + the king of vampires with just his mere presence

Liz and Meilodas are the most dull couple of MCs I've ever read. They have no chemistry whatsoever. She's a dumb blond, and he just gropes her.
>>
>>133149220
He's stronger than him CURRENTLY.
>>
>>133149191
But they do, see >>133148978

Its a pity, i kind of hoped it was going to be an old school fantasy adventure series like Slayers or whatever..

But its taking that distinctly shone turn
>>
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.
