Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai Episode 1: Valkyrie Drive’s Unofficial Successor? (NSFW)

Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee. Based on the premiere it looks like this will be the successor I had long hoped for.

WARNING! Just like my coverage of Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid these episodics will contain NSFW images. Viewer discretion is advised.

Maria meets Lucifer.jpg

Maria the human meets the fallen angel Lucifer.

So the story begins with a fallen angel later revealed to be Lucifer having been crucified and sent to the deepest regions of the Netherworld, all the while cursing the traitor Michael for backstabbing her. Before reaching her destination she crashed into a church and a young maiden named Maria could see her. Lucifer told her they would meet again before going down.

Demon Lord of Envy, Leviathan.

When she finally crashed to the bottom she met Leviathan who wanted to become a “Mortal Sin”, which I assumed meant being able to walk among the human world. Upon Lucifer’s “visit” Leviathan gleefully approached her…

…desiring her flesh. To be precise she wanted the two to take over hell so she could become a Mortal Sin. Lucifer held her ground and despite being temporarily distracted by remembering Michael’s betrayal she easily bested Levi.

Mesmerized by Lucifer’s power she pledged her allegiance and asked her to conquer the Netherworld because she felt Lucifer would make a grand ruler.

On their way to the council hall they were halted by Satan but she too was easily bested.

Apparently what becoming a Mortal Sin actually meant was to become part of the Sexy Bitches Club, aka the top sluts of hell.

Demon Lord of Greed.jpg

Demon Lord of Vanity, Belial.jpg

Demon Lord of Vanity, Belial.

Lucifer got into a squabble with the (self-proclaimed) Head Demon Lord Belial who sent the other Lords at her but they weren’t interested. You know what that means…

Blood transfer.jpg

Blood Pact thing.

…before that though we went back to Maria who remembered in more detail what happened before Lucifer went down, some kind of nipple blood pact thing.

Maria and Mina.jpg

Mina and Maria.

Why do I have the feeling Mina is going to play the role of “best friend who secretly is in love with you”?

Mina feeling Maria.jpg

Oh right.

Back to Lucifer vs Belial. Initially it looked like Lucifer would again make quick work of a Demon Lord. However, Belial was a rich brat so she had an ace up her crotch…

Asmodeous having her way with Lucifer.jpg

Shame Asmodeus was interrupted.

Demon of Pride Lucifer.jpg

Demon of Pride, Lucifer.

After getting her angel wings cut off it seemed like things were bleak for our anti-heroine but thanks to the wings getting cut Lucifer was freed from her divinity and fully awakened her inner darkness becoming the Demon of Pride. Afterward she and Levi were banished to the human world where she definitely met up with Maria again…under less than favorable circumstances. I do hope Mina won’t be left out of the impending journey of doom.

So yeah, people who disliked Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid are advised to not pick this one up. As for me…

    One thing not in the review: Don’t waste your time watching this on CrunchyRoll. It’s a version that’s censored in the most obnoxious way possible and it completely ruins the show. In some shows censorship isn’t necessarily a big deal but in this sort of show (and when it’s done like this) it makes it unwatchable.

    Compared to valkyrie drive the story line here appears to suck in the first episode, story plotwise it has little sense. Valkyrie drive had some decent plot but this?? it looks like it is banking only on its “plots”. But This is a yuri anime luckily!!!! 2017 is turning out to have a lot yuris similar to 2015 yay!!!!!

  8. I personally find fanservice heavy shows like this hit or miss, depending on if it’s got anything else to carry it. So, how does this stack up? Well, I think the story and characters outweigh the fanservice and if I’m being honest, I don’t mind the fan service much either. You can have two kinds of fanservice. The pointless, excessive kind that you know was just to pull a crowd. And the kind that is grounded in genuine desire, which this show portrays. Just like valkyrie drive, I think we’re in for a good story, bountiful ships and all the glorious yuri we could ask for. So, I’ll be watching for sure.

      Precisely Doc. The majority of the cast are demons and this is a fanservice heavy show so it is expected for the ladies to be extra naughty. Plus the plot had a solid foundation built from vengeance, conquest, an uneasy alliance and lots of naughty romancing.

  9. “Afterward she was banished to the human world where she’ll definitely be meeting up with Maria again and then Mina will get pissed.”

    Why do i get the feeling you missed the very last scene? Go watch it if you didn’t because she definitely met Maria again x)

    This definitely gave me Valkyrie Drive vibes (in more than one way if you know what I mean). The ending caught me off guard, but I also saw it coming at the same time. This show is pretty good so far even if it felt a bit scrambled at some parts, so I am definitely watching this.

    Just watched the pilot episode today. Pretty cool since the show seems to reference Dante’s Inferno and damn all those sexy ladies. Unfortunately, I watched it with heavy censors, much to my displeasure. Guess I’ll have to watch it again. Anyhow, the plot seems weak to me as of now but I hope it gets better. Valkyrie Drive was able to grab my interest from the pilot episode. Still, I ain’t dropping this show.

    Akuma no Riddle and Dante’s Inferno? I’m in. Ever read The Divine Comedy anyway? Stuff’s epic.

    Was lucky to watch this uncensored, which made for a better first impression than others. Our Ange character is now Salia apparently (or Sayaka).

    You know you’re waay too much of a Kannazuki fan if the opening reminds you of Amnesian, where Sister Himeko finds a 7-sword-pierced Chikane crucified after falling from the sky, crashing into a church. This is actually pretty similar to how an Amnesian anime would play out, no?

    Good to stumble across your blog again. Keep up the reviews.

    Lesbians. Check. Nudity. Check. Doesn’t even understand the meaning of the word of the word subtlety. Check. This is clearly the spiritual successor of Valkyrie Drive if there was one! ^_^

    What to probably expect:
    -Levi/Lucifer/Maria/Mina love triangle (hopefully)
    -More groping! (very likely)
    -More nudity! (more than likely)

    Your right for it being Valkyrie Drive’s Unofficial Successor, but it looks like there battles will might be on earth not hell. Hopefully no male characters will pop up for the rest of episode, but for what I see there might not be.

    • I would say this really lewd anime is more of a direct successor to Queen’s Blade since both shows came from Hobby Japan. Or we can say this is the love child of Queen’s Blade and Valkyrie Drive. Also, this has some similarities with Gabriel Dropout. There is a redheaded Satan girl and a blonde heroine who got corrupted.

      Finally, long time no see, everyone!

    My heart was pounding hard when I was watching this first episode because of too much excitement. But my heart skipped beats when Lucifer was in hell already…again because of too much excitement LOL 😛

    Anyway, “Sexy Bitches Club aka the top sluts of hell” is a nice way to put it 😀 Lucifer is definitely more powerful than all of them but Belial is just rich. And yes, Mina really looks like the friend that secretly has feelings for her best friend, Maria which, sadly, would probably end up having feelings for Luci later on. I don’t quite understand why Luci and Levi were banished to the human world though, does that mean the human world is way worse than hell? 😛 Also, that nipple blood pact thing, I think Luci gave Maria her angel.ness of some sort because she said she’ll give her an angel’s life or something.

    Oh man! I really want to see the next episode. I want to understand everything!…Plus more Lucifer and ecchi.ness. I cant wait! 😀

    I hated Valkyrie Drive. This, this I actually find interesting. Personally, I see it way more as a spiritual successor to Queens Blade. Plays out very similarly too.

    A friend of mine and I decided to watch this one together, we died laughing at this anime when they introduced Lucifer then Satan cause they’re the same person so like? What? But other than that, I didn’t really have any thoughts. Fanservice shows are always hit or miss with me. This wasn’t a complete miss, but I’m hardly in the mood for fanservice anymore. I’m old now and can’t have fun apparently. It had some nice instances of art/animation though. Designs are pretty well done and some of the ladies seem likable in their own, odd way.

      Nothing new really. Pretty much every single ECCHIMANIA anime in existence has got this kind of reaction from people who are normally not into shows like this: Either it gets scoffed for its objectification of women or ridiculed for it. Oh well, these kinds of show are clearly not for everyone.

      The circles in the censored version got more of a “not again” reaction from me.

      In any case you were curious and found out the show isn’t for you.
