Deep within an uninviting forest they find Diane, the Serpent Sin of Envy. Before they can celebrate their reunion, they must deal with an attack from Gilthunder, an electrifying Holy Knight!

Overall Thoughts/Opinions:

5/5

This next installment of The Seven Deadly Sins is chalk full of action and some character development for some of our heroes! The action is so intense, especially with the well done detailing of the fight sequences, but everything flows so smoothly which allows the readers to follow along easily. The character development in this volume was wonderful as well. Many manga series that I have read wait for real development for later volumes, but The Seven Deadly Sins start to ease into it in volume two. Here you’ll get a glimpse into Meliodas’s past, and how Diane and Meliodas first met. In this volume you also get to see Elizabeth’s character start to take shape. In the first volume she appears to be your average, naïve, princess in a crisis who tries to find a hero to save her. In volume two, Elizabeth starts to break away from that role and you get to see glimpses of her real character, which I look forward to seeing more of!

Also, for anyone concerned about fan service, there’s significantly less of it in this installment of the series. Instead, there’s a lot more action, blood, and destruction. Now, there’s still the occasional panty shot or perverted action by Meliodas, but only in a few places.
