How strong is Arthur?
>>
So that robed being next to Arthur is confirmed for being merlin yes?
>>
>people thought Merlin was the boar
>>
>>100538067

strong enough to give pause to Mel.

Hope he actually ends up being a long-term character with a properly developed faction instead of just "ARTHUR & MERLIN STRONK, no one else."
>>
>No diane and king quality time
Fuck you
>>
>only two strong characters from Camelot
>king and robed figure
>Arthur and obviously Merlin

fuck, they better hint the Knights of the Round soon, or else this screams 'super strong jobber for the demon clan."
>>
This manga never ceases to amuse me with the constant insane power levels.

>Diane probably won't feature much for a few months

Feels bad man.

Expecting Arthur to kick the sin's asses. Called it that this manga would develop into a three pronged battle
>>
>>100538261

Merlin betraying them and joining arthur because she knows about the demon clan plans would make a lot of sense.

Guessing Merlin will be the "straight" Sin member that's always deadly serious.

Haha, oh wow, things really escalated in the last 2 chapters. I'm fucking loving it. And here I was expecting to get a bit downtime fluff after Gowther's intro arc.

For some reason, I rather liked that exchange and the "come at me" attitude of Hendricksen.

>>100538067
He has the Horse Armor DLC. That alone makes him strong as fuck.

So far, eh struck me as a pretty down to earth guy. Either he had a good reason to take out his brother, or he's a "I was weak" type of fallen character. Loving those apparent shades of gray in the various characters.

>>
>>100539931
how does a massive army just SNEAK UP TO YOUR CASTLE
WHAT
>>
>>100540069
I've been wondering the same, but that's probably Merlin by Arthur's side, so she ain't gotta explain shit.
>>
FUCK YEAH. HE IS HERE.
>>
I stand by what I said. Merlin works for Henricksen and she is the one, on order from Henricksen, who took Elizabeth. She is obviously two-timing him as well. But that ain't merlin perse, It's the girl who learnt everything from Merlin then imprisoned him. That's her sin.

Masked person is prolly Escanor or some totally new character.
>>
Wait
What if the hooded person is Lady of the Lake?
>>
>>100540451
>>100540451
Viviana is Merlin. Else, there'd be no reason for Merlin to be a woman.
>>
>>100540069

Was a lot more common than you'd think.

See: Battle of Largs

In the horseback era it's pretty hard to get advance notice of an invading army fast, hence signal fires.

There's the famous networking problem that relates to using horseback messengers:

>you have to send a messenger across enemy territory
>The messenger could be killed on the way
>Only way of knowing if it arrived is if the destination sends a messenger back
>that messenger could also be killed.

Come up with a foolproof way of knowing a message arrived without sending out horsemen until the end of time.
>>
>>100540008

Merlin just teleported King Arthur to outside Holy Knights HQ, that's what happened.

>literally no hints of this besides the name of the country and the existence of a character named Merlin

Hold on tight readers, the author is going in dry

Almost certainly. Despite the power levels being insane from the start, I don't think anyone really expected him to be the most powerful in the long run

Going by Arthurian legend, he should be at least capable to do the same feat Meliodas did in chapter 2, when he acquired Excalibur. Then again, most proper holy knights should have been able to do what Meliodas did.
>>
>>100545252
I wouldn't at all. Then again, if there is one thing that this author has built so far, its good will. So if he did Kill off Arthur I'd still trust him.

Just because Excalibur is famous in our world doesn't mean it is so in that world as well.

>>100545252
I doubt it. Too much story potential would get abandoned with the round table knights, if Arthur was a jobber.

Then again, the manga is called 7 Deadly Sins, and not Arthur's Merry Adventures, so who knows. Either way, I'm in for the sins, so no hard droppage on my end.

Any possibility that Ellie's kidnapper wasn't from Hendricksen's crowd, but one King Arthur's entourage?

Not necessarily. He just assumes he has her, from circumstantial evidence. E.g. he sends out knights to capture her, then sees the sins pay him a visit and are mighty pissed. He hasn't gotten official word yet, but thinks one of his knights got lucky. That's why I say it might be Arthur who captured her.

No no no. You're forgetting Ellie's OTHER role. Remember, she's a princess. Technically the princess of two kingdoms, actually.

It's traditional for kings to cement their claim on conquered kingdoms by marrying a princess of the former ruling house.

So reading the oneshot now, seems to have potential.

What season is the anime supposed to air?
>>
>>100558338
No announcement of an anime yet, but with the sales and the potential/intended length it'll probably get one at the end of this year/early next year.

Let's hope it's not an ongoing series, but one with several cours with breaks in between.

Ban.

Ban typically sing-songs his speech.

Arthur is a little girl under all that armor

>>100559580
It's ban being sarcastic, note the musical symbol at the end characteristic of Ban joking around.

If the NnT wikia is right, he does all the art by himself, with his wife helping him occasionally.

Here’s the link: http://nanatsu-no-taizai.wikia.com/wiki/Nakaba_Suzuki
What irks me is that there’s no source. Maybe someone here knows more about it.

I dig his background art. It's nothing hyper detailed, but rather retains a comic look, yet doesn't seem lazy. It's something I'd expect from Bob Ross, if he did manga backgrounds instead of paintings. "Here's a happy little tree and now we add some fluffy clouds...". It sets the mood and general feel of the surroundings.

Also, dat use of strong black and white contrasts, instead of screentone.

I personally love the weight and 'action' in his lines.

He's been wanting to do this series for a looong time, so I think he can pull it off nicely.

Always nice to see an author getting to do a "dream project" and succeeding. At least I hope he will.

So after comparing Arthur's body to the other knights' on horseback, it seems he's actually much smaller than them.

Or his horse is gigantic.

someone from the giant clan fucked a horse

No, no, just compare his proportions. His legs and arms are shorter on his body compared to the other guys.

Arthur in the original legend became king when he was still young and here
>>100543632
Arthur is called a youngster. I'd say he was a kid.

OR HE INDEED SENT MERLIN DO HIS BIDDING. SAID MERLIN IS TWO-TIMING HIM WITH ARTHUR.
