It's finally out!
>I'm going to summon the demons to prove how strong we are
When has this ever worked?
It is a standard "war is good for you" kind of thing.
This chapter, they sure have an amazing way of getting somewhere fast.
Never, but hey, what's the worst that could happen.
Yep. Hendricksen thinks the Holy Knights are getting too dull. He was really against the King's wish for a peaceful reign, since it'd "invalidate" the existence of the Holy Knights as protectors.
I love how the armor is drawn.
Diane being best girl, as usual.
Obviously not Merlin
Nope. This high level of magic isn't evidence of any sort at all that this woman is Merlin.
This is Merlin isn't it?
That fucking helmet is too horrifying.
What did I just say? It clearly isn't her. Clearly.
Reminds me of the Silent Hill nurses.
>Literally the same armor
King, what the fuck are you doing, why aren't you following the sins. Gowther is cute as fuck, hugging Ban (mimicking his behaviour) like he does.
It wasn't obvious until you told me
He isn't as durable as Meliodas or Gowther. And he can't regenerate like Ban.
Huh, you're right, now it's even more horrifying.
Ban is so cute.
Gowther is so cute
Diane is a miracle of the universe.
He has a pillow for the landing though.
It probably wouldn't be enough to protect him. He uses it as a forward defense for himself most of the time.
He's a slowpoke. He didn't what they were planning.
Well, he did at the end. He was incredulous.
Next chapter is called "Unstoppable Villains".
Now that Meliodas and Ban have weapons.....yeah. I think it's obvious that the next chapter is meant to make up for how they've been losing recently.
Also, hey! If we're lucky, we'll get to see the Dawn Roar again!
Best mode of transportation of ever.
Cannot unsee. And why are most of the bad guys women?
Glad it's back. Shit the break felt longer than 2 weeks.
I love this manga for the massive armor fetish it gives me.
2015, someone said its already planned for 2015-16, when the series hit 100 chapters
We've had an even mix, actually. It might be better to say that we've had more well defined female villains that have fought against the MCs and have shown up enough times to be especially memorable.
If this series is so popular, where's the fanart?
>inb4 it's Merlin
>dat 10 foot ass
I want to live in it.
I wonder, when this have an anime, how many doujins it will spawn.
There's pretty much characters and personality for everything.
post dianass pls
Fuck, I loved this chapter. They sure are going places fast, in more than one sense.
The rear view must be glorious. I wish this series would get more fanart, so we'd have this covered.
because they are soulless creatures who tempt the fate of all good men
Get it yourself. I only save King art
So. From left to right, the pieces represent the Goddess Clan, the Human Clan, the Demon Clan, the Giant Clan, and the Fairy Clan respectively, right?
You are fucking fairysexual
Thank god I'm not a good man. now, I wonder if there's Geera porn somewhere
>walking through the woods and see this
Wut do ?
Are you a pervert?
Seem so, though I'm not sure which is Giant and which is Fairy, they both seem so angelic.
Also, the Goddess piece is kiss the Giant piece.
Well ok this is the only Diane fanart I saved just because how ridiculous it looks.
Spoiled for lewd content.
Ok so the woman is Merlin
and she is not the traitor because that would be too obvious
which leaves the last guy
>King is a Fairy
>Meliodas is a Demon
>Diane is a Giant
>Ban is a human (and immortal because fuck you)
Could Gowther be a Goddess?
Plot twist: There is no traitor.
I'm just assuming the Giant clan is the one represented by a giant face and that the fairies are represented by the one that seems to be wearing a harlequin hat. And since the Goddess Clan is probably composed of females, I assumed the left-most piece represented them.
Merlin is. SInce it's not Merlin but the fée du lac.
>no more Diane this arc
Feels bad man
Wouldn't it be Merlin? Since the Goddess clan can only be female?
That would be nice, the Sins seem loyal to each other.
Huh, I didn't noticed the harlequin hat at all, now I'm sure that it's the fairy clan. Thanks.
Gowther is a golem
Also Gowther's name is hard to spell
No it's easy.
isn't elizabeth the most likely to be part of the goddess clan?
I wonder what "the undead Ban" could be
>And I have to work
You better keep this shit alive for 6+ hours
Ban's human who drank from the holy grail.
human who became immortal
It looks like her helmet is cuddling with her face.
It's actually kinda cute, in a silent hill kinda way.
His name is "undead Ban" yes but he's a HUMAN that drank soe magical water.
He is technically human, it just has wacky powers
Not like he died and came back
You guys want to know why they decided to go just like that without a mean to go back? Because they know it's Merlin and that she will take them away once they've succeedded in their mission.
I'm not sure if Meliodas or Gowther noticed that the kidnapper was Merlin, but Ban seemed to. That's probably why he changed his mind about helping captain.
That or.....they're planning to hoof it out of there once they got Elizabeth?
If given the time to examine the woman, Gowther would probably be able to tell if it's Merlin (if she hasn't taken any magical measures to hide her identity, that is).
Oh fuck. Diane and King are on a date now. Let's go KING.
Does anyone remember whether the name of the murdered Great Holy Knight was mentioned in previous chapters? Seeing how Dreyfus is now the Great Holy Knight, it appears he's the one who committed the murder and framed the Sins.
Dat nightmare helmet design.
Why is everyone so convinced the scary helmet woman is Merlin?
>This is actually Escanar in drag
Same fashion style. Long skirt to feet.
I'm not. Biggest doubt is that she uses a different weapon.
mostly because she's probably the next sin they'll recruit due to being the only one they have info of, she was the traitor so she's probably with the holy knights, the female knight was able to use high level teleportation magic, and because she came out of nowhere
HAHAHAHAHAH THEY TOOK PIG AWAY TOO.
Every busty female with a covered face using high level magic will be assumed to be Merlin until proven otherwise.
There's still a chance that after King gets back his RESOLVE, he'll teleport over there alongside Diane.
Wut? Why would he? He is finally all alone with Diane.
Or maybe they're expecting Diane's party to get there by the time they rescue Liz.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure Merlin isn't the traitor. If she was, then she would've took Mel's sword hilt thing when she knocked him out.
What are the possibilities for King to end up with Diane?
HAHA. OH GOD. HAWK.
And nobody gives a shit about it. It's priceless.
Hope we get some side chapters with them both.
Pretty high I'd say, this is a shounen artist who does actually pair up side characters.
Seems obvious. Female. Her silhouette resembles Merlin's. She's apparently a caster capable of high level magic. And her face is obscured. Obvious hints, at least, to those who recognize these tropes.
Pretty high, considering Mel/Liz seems to be a done deal. Unless Howser manages to swoop in for a surprise victory.
>male main character + friends goes to rescue potential love interest being held captive in enemy stronghold
>conspiracy amongst people in the enemy stronghold which isn't as evil as it first appeared
Soul Society mk.2 incoming?
Whoops, meant to write Hauser. He also had a "see you as a normal girl" flag moment.
>tfw King x Diane doesn't happen in order to keep King x Ban going for the fujioshi
Consider the name of the next chapter
Meliodas, Ban, and Gowther are gonna fuck up the Holy Knights' HQ. Now that Meliodas and Ban are packing weapons, they've basically lost their handicaps. Although, I can't see Ban's whip on his person currently.
Why Is Diane such a miracle of the universe?
Please no. SS arc ending was the worst thing to happen to Bleach.
Fuck that stupid meathead, King is whereàs romance at
Wait... When did Mel and Ban get their weapons? Have I not been paying attention?
just weapons so they're not just using their fists or whatever
not their holy weapons or whatever
Ban picked his up from a dead knight during the battle against Geera's dad.
Cain delivered Liz's gift sword to Elizabeth, who brought it over to Meliodas. You can see Meliodas carrying it in this chapter as he's thrown.
They pilfer weapon from Holy Knights who were killed by the Armored Giant
Meliodas did, but he lost it (or it got destroyed). Elizabeth then brought him the sword Liz originally wanted to give to him.
Tiny fairy and giant, how work? Though I could imagine King super supersizing himself, at which point Diana kicks him away in disgust.
King is the unrequited love gag
He won't get anyone
For some reason this reminds me of Satanguidemycock.
Dat throwing form. I'm so happy to see Diane not being useless and that she's able to carry her own weight, so to speak.
The series has some pretty cool female characters in general.
Nah, he's the unrequited until a. heroic sacrifice, or b. last few chapters with epilogue showing offsping kind of guy.
I want Gowther to be a robot.
A robot in a fantasy story would just be too great.
Fantasy robot is just a golem you know
wonder why zetman translation is so painfully slow
It's not really the same though.
because nobody cares about zetman anymore
I care about Zetman.
Isnt't that last week's chapter? 62 when?
Probably will be both. Personally think all sins will survive the series, except for ban who'll reunite with the love of his life.
There was no chapter last week as far as I recall
>I can't pick up the sound of your speech.
Supersonic toss? Oh lawd.
This Holy Knight is sure to get her after she get over the Captain.
How? While one is just created by magic and the other is created by technology, their function and purpose are the same.
Arguably got enough content for a 26 ep series now. Depends on how they want to do it.
Given how insanely popular this series is, it'll be a loooong manga
Although Diane in Elizabeth's outfit was great, it has meant that doujin writers will probably make her normal sized 9/10 times now.
>Given how insanely popular this series is, it'll be a loooong manga
The mangaka already said he plans for 40 volumes.
Because one is created by magic and the other by technology.
A golem is made of clay while a robot is made of metal.
Clay and metal are simply not the same just as MAGIC and TECHNOLOGY,
Manga-ka rarely get a say on length. See Akamatsu having to stretch out Love Hina against his will.
I'd imagine the publishers will get him to put in "stop" points after some arcs that provide a neat place for an anime to end.
I guess if he wants a distinct alternative to a golem, there's still the clockwork knight archetype, which would still fit a high fantasy setting, though I think Gowther is more of a golem or maybe
homunculus type of creation.
He should have drawn it from the opposite perspective.
Please do not sexualize the giantess.
Diane is love. Which includes sexual love.
She is already sexualized by the author. You'd have to desexualize her.
But she wants to be sexualized by Captain
It's also possible that they'll pressure him to continue it longer than intended.
I hope Nakaba is man enough to withstand them either way.
I read that as giantass, dammit
Slow down, my friend. We don't want fillers.
srs? As much as I love this manga, im not too sure if i want that much.
Holy fuck, that arc got going a lot faster than I imagined.
>I know you killed your brother to become great holy knight
>btw I killed your son
>FUUUUU I'm gonna kick your...
>SHIIIIT Elizabeth was taken! And the pig, but no one cares!
>DEADLY TRIPLE SIN MISSILEEEEEE!
Why did you have to tell that?
I don't think I will ever be able to read it any other way again.
I want Diane animated ;_;
We should be priviledged to hear about this series this soon. In a few years, after the anime comes out, the popularity will go up even more. This fanbase will go out of control. Then the rest of /a/ will hate us.
But Griamor is alive.
>Following them when he can just stay alone with Diane
FINE I'll allow it if the fillers are about Diane.
Believe it's currently outselling Fairy Tail when it was at this stage before.
Should explode when it gets an anime
He didn't know that. The official report says Griamor was killed by the Sins.
>Nanatsu no Taizai will some day be called generic shounen shit and shunned here
Enjoy these moments, friends.
Presumed dead though.
I do, as long as it stays up to the standard it has been at so far. That being said, 40 volumes is a lot of room to turn into shit fast.
It's not wise to care about /a/'s opinion too much anyway.
I will miss these threads though.
Up until the crew get back together, the whole manga can be considered a prologue.
HOW THE FUCK DID I MISS THAT
Because nobody gives a shit. It's just that panel. Then we have Cap going outside and all.
Cause no one cares about Hawk. ;_;
It's a generic shonen. But it's so pure. I can't help but loving it.
The future is grim for Nanatsu discussions on /a/. But if the adaptation is good, it doesn't really matter to me what /a/ will think. Anyway, what's the best studio that can take on the adaptation of a series that will go on forever?
The price of getting a animu adaption is attracting a shit fanbase, but in return, we get soundtracks, doujinshi and increased amounts of fanart.
Speaking of which, what studio could you imagine doing a somewhat decent adaption? Bones always does a nice job, as long as they stick to the existing material, though they don't do long running projects and their original content is cringe worthy. Last season made me think that the dudes who did the new Yozakura Quartet series could probably do a great job, both for the action and the fanservice.
I disagree but okay.
They've never done a continual adaptation but Hoods are great at being faithful to manga designs.
Regarding the 40 volume thing. It's all a prologue until they get back together. Heck, they can end the prologue with the demon gate being opened.
Bones can do a 26 episode anime now and a few years later a remake.
>Because nobody gives a shit.
Hawk does. And a big one at that. Remember that he wanted to go "release his seal" a few panels earlier. Gotta be a nice surprise once the materialize at their teleport destination.
Mmmmmh, animated flashback...
So. Now that it's established that Diane is indeed the best miracle of the universe... Who would play her in an anime?
>completely removes all the bloodshed and fanservice
How much would you rage?
How about Rina Satou (Misaka Mikoto's voice actress)?
somthing like this.
But at the price of dem dreaded Bones original ending.
>removes all the bloodshed
Manageable for the most part, except for Ban's part. Would be kinda awkward, if he didn't get holes blown into him or get torn in half. His lazy disregard for his own well-being is kinda a defining character point. Also, who doesn't want to see Tweego blow up with "explosive power" or Geera lending a hand to Mel?
I thought it was because he'd hate to have the demon clan resurrected
Anybody remember those 4kid dubs that remove all blood?
Image the jericho scene without blood.
I want Gowther to hug my waist from behind
I agree and that is actually why I love it.
It's a long running Shounen that was build around being longrunning so unlike most mangaka Nakaba actually has a fucking plan.
>forshadowing even in the first chapters
>starting off with a classic prologue like assembling while slowly expanding the world
THIS is the exact same shit I want from a good action/adventure Shounen. NnT is not deep or that special, it's just one of the very few instances where the damn Nips actually fucking planned beforehand.
he is the antithesis to Kubo, kishimoto, mashima and Oh Great and I love it.
This is one of my favourite weeklies along with OP, HxH (when it is actually published) Magi and Kingdom.
RIP wherever you are.
Just imagine you'd have from behind in that panel.
He's in OPM.
>dat fucking fastball special
Ban best character
This author is so good at dynamic stuff. So, so good.
She has a sexy outfit, but given her proportions, she's hardly sexualized. I mean, think a bit about the potential of lewd shots there could be.
>Introduce rescue arc
>Princess already kidnapped and heroes halfway to enemy base in the first chapter
I like it.
She is already there in mindset but being a giant is holding her back sadly
>She is already there in mindset
SEX , its on her mind a lot
All aboard Ban Air. This ride has no brakes.
He's rather good at mixing up the panel flow with different angles and getting his characters into dynamic poses. His character proportions get wonky sometimes, though I'd attribute it to his "style" most of the time and not inability. Whether his style choice is always agreeable is probably down to personal preference.
One thing I noticed is how much fun I have simply following his art and panel direction. It's simply well presented. Backgrounds vary between detailed and sparse, but always maintain a comic/faerie tail look, instead of "time saving". Aforementioned varied camera angles, sometimes little things going on in the background, etc. Strong use of blacks and whites for lighting.
I really wish we'd get scans of the raw tankobon beyond vol.4 (and that missing page from 4). They look great and often show a lot of detail that went missing in the filtered scanlation releases.
>you will never be in Diane's softest place
Being a popular shonen =/= being hated on /a/. One Piece is loved here, Bleach accepted to discuss about too. Only ones that are truly despised is Naruto and Fairy Tail (and latter kinda loved due fanservise).
Fuck you, Gilthunder.
And fuck you, spoiler man.
>His character proportions get wonky sometimes
That has to do with dynamism. Exaggerated foreshortening and things like that really help on conveying movement.
When is Mashima going to draw Gowther?
I need to know for research purposes.
Do we have tkb of the tournament arc yet?
Spoiler? It's from the 7th chapter. If you haven't come that far, you should be busy reading the manga, not hang out in this thread.
I agree. Just threw it in, because I see it mentioned as a complaint, once in a while.
Also, dem armor designs.
I've only seen the tankobons scanned up to 4, which ends just before the beginning of the tournament (chp29). So far, 6 volumes have been released, so we're 2 volumes behind.
Is Mashima even good with traps? Can't really score points with boobs and hips with those.
Hawk is unusually serious here.
And in a few minutes he gets teleported out of here along with a princess by someone, who resembles Merlin.
Just a few more points towards the theory about him being a Merlin's spy.
Just about every style with her hair down suits Diane better than her normal style which is a shame.
>OP is low budget but good direction saves it
> 4kids-ified Jericho scene
> ban you stole my lunchbox i hate you
> holy knight made me eat veggies so im stronger
> look at how fast i tickle you
> tickled you so fast chocolate is coming out of your shirt> hmm such good chocolate i'll smear it on my lips and lick it
> better remember to wash my teeth afterwards
>hmm such good chocolate i'll smear it on my lips and lick it
Well, that's still...
Gilthunder reminds me of Ky, from Guilty Gear.
I like her normal hair style. Don't you enjoy Diane hiding her face behind her hair?
Why did you have to go and say that?
The doctor says I need to cut down on my HNNNNNGs
I just noticed that King is touching his butt.
