New chapter of Nanatsu no Taizai is out.
SHIT'S GOING DOWN
Oh for fucks sake Diana
That was stupid of Diane.
Also I WANT THAT BAN PLUSHIE!!
What do I have to do?
How can a girl so big be so adorable?
>Giant in charge of sneaking in.
This was bound to happen.
Why doesn't she just grow some of those mushrooms that shrink her and make a perfume out of it or something...
Because best girl
Well, it's really Oslo's fault for choosing the place where she was sent to.
I'm excited for this 1 vs 6 battle. We'll get to see just how well a Sin compares to the best of the Holy Knights.
It would be priceless if she just pulls back out of the dog and is like nope..
Oh god, that poor dog.
Arthur's got a different sword. I guess the author is following the version where the sword in the stone is just meant to be a ceremonial sword and the one Arthur uses in battle was received from the lady of the lake.
>Implying Arthur isn't Meliodas' onichan
Shit the chapter felt way to short.
Right. I forgot how old meliodas was.
Other way around, I'd think.
I wonder if the sword he's wielding belongs to Meliodas (since it doesn't look like the one he pulled out of the stone at all).
>tell me about my dad's disappearance
>blew up his head last month
Oh god yes, King Arthur is so cool.
I don't like where this is going, Geera is going to be seriously wounded before this end, isn't she.
>You discover a giant stuck in your basement, what do.
So is Diane still blocking the way or are we going to see King?
Maybe he has more than one sword and his mage pal stores the more powerful boulder sword at a pocket dimension.
But that's because I want him to swing that massive sword. This chapter one looks fragile.
I think Diane got out? She must have caused the shaking while crawling through the passageway.
>They harm DIane
>King blow up the castle
I like that development.
How did she even get there.
Diana is very chill with the situation.
>The fairy king can't touch her butt
Don't talk shit about my bro. Unlike Mel he is a gentleman.
>Touching her butt with his tinyass hands
>When he can stare at it
Why would he just stare at it when he can "push her" with both hands and his head at the area where her vagina is?
You know he can transform right? He can definitely make his hands not child sized. Plus fondling asses with your whole body is better than just staring.
So who's going to die next chapter. I bet it's Hauser.
That page looks rather awesome, artwise I mean. Dem shadows, no screentone whatsoever, strong contrast, those details. It's pretty fucking cool.
Also the town backgrounds scenery throughout the chapter. In >>101785064 for instance, that rugged narrow alleyway reminds me of towns I've been to, or >>101785129 conveying that luxurious and shiny interior of the castle. NnT is one of the few manga I'm currently following, where I actually step back every few pages and just take in some of the artwork for the sake of it. I don't even know why I like this style so much.
Yeah, I don't know if you really call it minimalistic, but he's very good at using (relatively) few details to give the impression of a fully fleshed out space. The way those shots are framed really draws attention to it too, a high sweeping shot for a grand interior and a low, close-in shot for a ground-level street
Have you never read Gulliver? MC is disgusted by giants as he sees the pores in their body etc. King's love for Diane doesn't lay in her body. He knows she is disgusting. His love is pure.
Seems King is not the only one who get a healthy dose of suffering. Last chapter he was still all "Oh thank god, Diane's not with them. Don't wanna battle mai waifu!"
>There will also be a ban plushie giveaway
>unexpected finds her
>can't even wuss out of the responsibility because everyone else is there
>after all ends
>probably thinks that she'll hate him after all that
King Arthur Pentdragon is a shota....
I was expecting he is a she...
You keep using that word...
Gotta love how all of Helbrams scheming is gradually going up in a puff of smoke.
Interesting power that Dreyfus displayed there. Seems he made the hole just with a swipe of his sword.
Giltsundere still in full ravaged backside mode. I wonder how long it'll take for him to come around.
He is not a shota more like a teen
I just want King to go full Harlequin again and destroy everything.
So what's the chance of the hooded person actually not being Merlin?
OTOH a man has got to rise to the occasion. If saving the princess means touching a delicious butt, then that's what he's gotta do.
Merlin is the teleporting knight. Notice how she address Henricksen (as equal) and how she wears a similar armor as Merlin from the fb?
Next to none, especially after hooded caster started floating in >>101784946.
One-page-thread material right there.
What are the chances that the hooded guy is the original Merlin and the Sins' Merlin stole his name while studying magic to sate her "hunger" for knowledge?
Merlin's the hooded guy with Arthur. That XTREME magic she did with the artificial army should've been a dead giveaway.
Um, have you seen the woman who was reporting to Hendricksen this chapter?
So... can a great holy knight challange a sin alone?
That's 2 pages, you mongoloid
>falling for obvious red herrings
Why didn't she take the hilt when she knocked down Mel a shitton of years ago if she's working for goatee?
>Fairy King can't touch her butt
What the fuck does it means?
Also Arthur is sexy as hell.
Because she is not working for him. Only pretending to. Or whatever other reasons. Fact of the matter, it seems pretty clear that knight is the sin called Merlin. She even floats and wears some kind of robe.
Calm down, what's with the smartassery and attitude? That's never stopped anyone in a one page thread.
I just wanted to fuck you.
fuck with you*
Guess what, so does robe-Merlin. You should know by now to not base your speculations on the knights purely on how they look 7(?) years ago.
The great holy knight from way back apparently couldn't, if the traitor theory is true.
I think it's less secret plans and more "OH FUCK ME IT'S THAT GIANT WITH THE HAMMER AGAIN"
The difference being, "hooded-merlin" isn't wearing a similar armor the sin wore 7 years ago. Plus, It's quite clear with the way floating knight is adressing the HK she ain't a simple knight.
what if its both of them
i mean the one potential merlin did create a phantom army pretty casually
What if everyone is Merlin and the whole manga is her just passing the time by playing with clones.
The one in robes doesn't look anything like the Sins' Merlin. The theory that the Sins' Merlin is Viviane and that the guy with Arthur is the original Merlin seems more plausible than the robed guy being the Sins' Merlin.
what if we are her clones
That guy was killed by Hendricksen and Dreyfus working together, I believe.
How the fuck can you tell when you can't even see anything but his/her hands sometimes?
>Forgetting the Sins' Merlin was a female
Merlin Knight is Viviane aka Sins' merlin.
I can already see it. Diane will want to create some space with her earth magic and they'll accidentally drop into the cavern with the demon.
Bonus opportunity for King to face Helbram once more and overcome whatever is making him hold back.
Can't talk your way out of this one, laddie. Freudian slip at its' finest.
>No doujins whatsover
Poor display, Japan. Very poor.
Um, yeah? Are you agreeing with me?
Let me return a question to you; how the fuck can you not tell that the sorceress with Hendricksen is Merlin?
If it were Fairy Tail, this would be the point where we'd guess it's Jellal.
You REALLY need to stop basing your speculations on appearance alone. They've been known to be wrong multiple times already. The only remotely close one were Ban's. Mel ended up to be a kid, Diane a giant, King a shota, and Gowther a homo.
If this were FT all the tension would be gone already.
Mashima can't keep up an arc to save his life. He packs all drama and tension into the beginning leaving the climax and aftermath EXTREMELY lackluster.
Gowther was hidden in a suit. All the rest had similarities to their wanted posters.
Because the one with Arthur has been shown to cast 2OPplsnerf magic comparable to the sins.
It's not speculations. It's using the balance of probability to make an educated guess.
I know of at least two, though they didn't get scanned.
As did the one with Henricksen.
This is bullshit and you know it. Mel does not look like a grown man like the posters suggest. King stays in shota form out of gags. Gowther being in a large suit implies that he is a large man. Diane is actually pretty close so there's that.
Isn't the idea that they are not what they seem? And in Merlin's case, wouldn't it be that she is not, in fact, a real traitor?
>Implying Merlin isn't female
>Supportezd both by flashbacks AND the poster.
Suzuki draws some damn cute girls.
Even Kongou Banchou was filled with them.
What in the fuck are you talking about?
Gowther was completely covered in armor. All the rest do share similarities with their wanted posters. This is all true.
And there's this.
Yeah, I can't even begin to imagine how he'd commit the same error time and time again. That and inability to do any world building are some of his most glaring faults. For all the chapters FT has, I still don't really feel like "Fairyland" is a fleshed out place with history and people living in it. It's all feels like disconnected set pieces.
Merlin is a female. Female as we've got no idea what race she is.
>Escanor is the traitor
Well, fuck that. Though I'm willing to bet that Merlin is the "traitor", because she found out something important and she had but to "betray" all her friends for a greater cause. Either way, there's no true villain among the Sins, that's a given in my opinion. The author doesn't have the balls for that.
The point is that that doesn't automatically make her part of goatee's groupie. She could've betrayed the group for Arthur for example.
How is this relevant to anything I said? Not once did I deny that she is female.
Agreed. Remember when they travelled into that alternate dimension? That felt so tacked on, it wasn't fleshed out at all.
And after some quick and boring arc everyone returned and the matter was never picked up again.
It's like Mashima has an idea he really likes, begins working on it and while he has started he has another idea and wants the current one to be done with. Rinse and repeat.
> Touch the butt
> Save the princess
When will King's suffering end?
You said the posters were misleading. Who cares if she does not have black hair..
The point is that they don't look the same. Saying that she's Merlin because the dress is similar is silly.
She teleports around which is something nobody has been able to do. And we know it is something quite fantastic since that knight tried to hide his power as being able to teleport.
You said the posters were misleading. Meaning Merlin's sin wasn't a female.
Truly the sin of envy
Look, let me ask you a question. When you first saw Armando, did you immediately realize that he was Gowther? Several anons did. And there were also several who denied it and thought it was stupid.
This is basically the same thing. You're allowing one thought, that the Sins don't match their posters, override reason.
>The point is that they don't look the same. Saying that she's Merlin because the dress is similar is silly.
YES. BUT. They share similarities. King, for example, wore the same clothes and had the same haircut and weapon.
Meliodas was a younger version of his poster.
Ban had a beard when he showed up.
Diane looked more youthful and was a giant.
Gowther is the only one who gets a free pass because, out of all the Sins, he was completely covered in armor.
This chapter had a bunch of nice pages. I really liked the one with Meliodas's group and the explosion. Then the double page spread with the knights and Diana
>Boobs as huge as they are
Truly a wonder of the universe.
Why are all the girls so cute?
Dude you completely changed the directions with those obnoxious arrow over the eyes.
The girls are looking at their face.
so many things wrong with this picture,
1) how can diana be staring at three people
2) how can dianas boobs be staring at anything
teen is shota
What's Hauser saying here? Is there a larger version of the page up somewhere?
Does Jericho wear a zettai ryouiki armor with garter-belt?
Arthur is like 14 - 15, not shota at all. It's basically adult man already, just shorter and less hairy.
Thats her special skill anon.
Well 14-15 IS grown up by medieval standards.
He could be legally married with several kids at this point.
I think it's "What kinda place is this?", though I'm not sure.
It's easier to see it here.
I like it.
>How can she be staring at three people
She's got BIG EYES
It's just like one of my ero-comics!
So, niggers from Mars got an anime, now I shall wait for this. I hope animu made it more popular and we'll get a lot new fanart and doujinshi
So Hendricksen and Helbram are both dagger users. Huh.
I'm starting to believe Diane might be a bit dense.
Jericho's old hairstyle was definitely sexier.
Not dense, slow. She is a giant afterall. brain being bigger, she is slower than smaller animals since her brain takes more time to process things.
Is Jericho even a girl's name?
Most likely one of those "Father was hoping for a son he could raise to become an honorable knight similar to himself, but alas his child was born a lady! What now must he do!?" situations.
Rather common type of story, really.
She was a trap, remember.
She was hiding/dressing as a boy before Ban happened.
Jericho is a town's name.
It can be a boy name too.
If a fag saw her he'd think je found himself a cute boy who's dick he can stroke. But of he'd pull down her pants he'd see her disgusting meat flaps which makes her a trap for gays or a reverse trap but not a normal trap.
I finally got around to catching up to this. The first volume was kind of slow, but it's only gotten better and better since then. I might even buy the volumes at this rate.
>he calls them cuties
That's pretty cute.
Except that's not how brain works.
It's a well known fact that giants are dumb though.
I'm still surprised how fast Suzuki let the situations progress and escalate. After the Gowther arc, I was sure we'd get a few minor skirmishes and buildup. Then suddenly, the princess gets kidnapped, one chapter later the sins are already flying across the country towards the enemy HQ and King Motherfucking Arthur shows up on the doorstep to mix things up. Show offhandedly that Gilthunder is diamond for the eldest princess, Ellie is on the loose in the dungeon and everyone is on their way to a big face off, with the sixth sin about to be revealed.
Meanwhile, Kubo has one entire chapter about 2 characters trash talking about whether fear is negligible if you're cold enough.
I like how fast the plot moves but I'd still enjoy if the sins had some useless shenanigans now and then.
>Gilthunder is diamond for the eldest princess
I see what you did there.
Originally I thought this was just a disguise, but now I think that form of Helbram is tied to him being a faery. He switches between this and his old guy appearance just as King does between his shota form and the burly look.
Information takes time to go from one neuron to another. Her synapses do not activate faster because she is a giant. Same reason as to why little creature react faster than bigger creature/have shorter life-span.
Yeah, a sub-category of traps. All reverse traps are traps.
ANd seeing how that's something that actually look like a fairy, that means King should have another form.
You can't just simplify it like that Anon. Traps are an exact science after all.
I'm wondering how close Suzuki intends to stick to the Arthurian legend in the long run. Obviously we've already gotten tons of namedrops and tidbits from it, but then again, this is not Arthur's story, but the Sins', and we got plenty of other stuff. like the various clans with the demons being the most prominent.
On another note, would NnT count as high fantasy? Technically it's set in "our" world, thanks to the name ties to the Arthurian legend, but apart from that, it may as well be a completely original fantasy world, if you switched names of some key personnel.
RIP in peace, Geera.
Timeskip to 10 years later. Geera's otouto is now a holy knight, out to pursue the dastardly sins that "killed" his big sister. Arthur is now a battle hardened warrior king. The sins still look the same. Elizabeth is a MILF.
>Geera's otouto is now a holy knight
Add in the mix demon blood for the irony. Also, not milf but xmas cake Elizabeth, son. Remember she's 16 right now.
milf because she gets impregnated by Melodias of course.
Melodias looked hot as hell on the poster.
Wish we had got that instead of a supershota.
