Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins)

-1 season (2nd season coming this year!)
-24 episodes

-Season: Fall 2014

-Synopsis: In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the "Seven Deadly Sins," were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.
Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins. With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights, but to also seek justice in an unjust world.

Personal feedback:
This anime was action packed and contained some romance. I never got bored with it, and the plot is great! It's got great villains for you to yell at your screen and heroes to root for. The characters are admirable and the anime gives a good look at each of the main character's background, so your never left lost or confused as to why something happened. If you don't enjoy perverted scenes and such, this one isn't that bad, there is some minor stuff, but it's mainly humorous and is never taken too far, so there's no need to worry. If you're looking for deep romance, this anime won't give you that. But I never said it didn't give romance. There definitely are love connections, I just don't think some relationships are as explored as others, but that might happen in the second season coming Summer 2016. This is a good action and adventure anime. I highly recommend this one, but if these genres aren't your type then it might not be for you. But give a shot anyways!
Comment what you thought of the anime, if you've already watched or watched it after reading my card! Please give me feedback if this was an accurate description or not!

I don't mean to be the one sour review but I didn't think it was great. it's a good watch, you won't be bored. I would put it at the same level as SAO. they never explained why they were so strong or why even they had their names as sins. they just were. I didn't find it that funny but each of us have seen different anime to compare against for that.

@MikeCopersito it's ok. It's your opinion. I did find that a little strange, but it might be explained in season 2. They still need one more sin.
