Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai Episode 5: The Melancholy of Astaroth Suzumiya (NSFW)

After a week off due to the previous episode (4.5) having been a recap we’re back on track with our “heroines” hunting down the latest Demon Lord…who I guessed wrong in it being the DM of Sloth.

Demon Lord of Melancholy, Astaroth: Internet Hip-Hop Idol.

Our “heroines” tracked down Astaroth who was using her melancholic apocalyptic beat to gather followers. They were hoping to kick her ass but unfortunately Astaroth used her mad beatnik skills to demotivate her opponents to fighting her on her own playing field…

…by recording a music video of their own singing a similar song as Astaroth’s. However, as lovely as Lucifer’s singing was the lyrics were pretty gloomy, bumming her out.

Belial dropped by to check up on Astaroth. When the latter told her that she was feuding with Lucifer Belial assured her that she’d win with her help. Astaroth was, of course, feeling gloomy and even her buddy (hopefully girlfriend) Sloth couldn’t cheer her up.

Lucifer didn’t want her next song to be gloomy so Maria…coerced Lucifer into singing an idol tune.

It was pretty much the same song with a more upbeat tempo. It was another hit but Astaroth countered by uploading a beatnik video of her brooding with style. Her being who she was, it worked. Lucifer was backed into a corner.

This setback hit Lucifer so hard it reminded her of when Michael banished her because she felt she could correct GOD’s mistakes.

After getting over it the only way she knew how and telling off Belial she ordered Maria to come up with a Plan C.

Plan C was turning Lucifer into a Virtual Idol.

What was Astaroth’s counterattack?

Wow.

Super Sexy Heavy Metal of course.

It was the moment of truth. The final duel between the two and Astaroth looked like she was close to winning. how could she possibly lose?

Oh yeah. She’s an introvert. Thankfully Sloth was there to motivate her.

The two had a wicked duel…though I’m not sure who won. Maybe it was a draw? It didn’t seem like Astaroth gave up the keys to Lucifer since she said she would face her again later. Anyway Lucifer warmed up to Maria even more.

This can be best described as a hot mess of an idol themed episode. Everything went by so quickly yet it was all so insane to the point of being GLORIOUS! Maybe it was Astaroth’s Super Sexy Heavy Metal music video that won me over. Anyway I enjoyed it.

Okay. NEXT TIME it’s Sloth’s turn. Personally looking forward to that one.

  1. When the episode started, I was a bit unsure of how it’d turn out and if I’d like it the same as the others, but it actually turned out to be enjoyable. I agree that the Astaroth’s final video might have won me over too and really boosted my interest. That and her relationship with Sloth (I hope it’s her gf too). It also seems as though Lucifer really does have genuine feelings for Maria and that Maria is actually starting to fall for her too, but I guess time will continue to tell. I’m really looking forward to next episode though, because sloth seems interesting too. I really love her voice (as an aside).

    Maybe you didn’t watch the end of ep 4.5, it has the full “music video”, the post feels like you were taken by surprise with Astaroth’s song, gotta admit, this episode really unique and entertaining, glad to see the writer took some liberties, every fan-services focused anime should be like this.

    Hmm, this episode felt super cringy to me.
    Well, okay it was mostly the music videos plus that random scene in which Lucifer starts speaking English, imagining jumping down that building.

    Though, I think singing will be a theme in future episodes too, seeing how much they already did that in previous episodes… oh well at least I can see the romance between Maria and Lucifer blossoming~

      Maybe it’s because you’re not super into idol shows, only a select few. That or this episode wasn’t gay enough though as you said Maria and Lucifer are making progress.

    I thought the last fight would be whoever shows most skin while singing till the end wins since Luci stripped -_-

    Anyway, it was both a cute and awesome episode. Though I don’t quite like the cute idol image for Luci. The songs are good except for the lyrics 😛
