I don't know why but I like it.

I just hope the MC doesn't progress to be one of those useless or edgy types. But from now, I'm pretty happy with ep-1.


It doesn't look like he's going to be useless. I guess there is some potential for transformation to edgy (which I wouldn't mind), but maybe he'll just stay industrious and earnest and wholesome without an edge. Maybe.

I am find with him being edgy, but only a little, we don't need two shadow the hedgehogs in this world.

Episode 2

And now, here comes Tsubaki, who is a true vampire himself and Kuro's brother. In all, there are eight Servamps even though it was said that there's only seven of them, and Tsubaki turns into a fox. As it turns out, Tsubaki is indeed full of melancholy even if his psycho attitude suggests otherwise. And then comes another Servamp in All of Love, a.k.a. Snow Lilly, and his master Misono. Seeing that Mahiru doesn't know how to use a Servamp that he ends up making an ally in Misono and Lilly. That was really something seeing all of these Servamps coming out like that. So three Servamps have shown themselves with five more to go with the next one coming after Sakuya.

His friend is totally a vampire.

The vampires being based off the seven deadly sins makes it more reasonable that they're so consumed by one character trait.
I am amused that the two master servant sets shown so far have the master as the opposite of the vampire.

Gonna have seven deadly sins overload this season.

I think it's a great anime, first episode was more less nice.
We'll see.

Episode 2 was nice, tho I couldn't help but feel like the animation quality was stepped down a bit. The new characters all look somewhat interesting, with the exception of the villain. His design and personality come off as being pretty derivative and his whole plan gets pretty much taken apart by the main guy almost immediately. Not very intimidating. Oh well. At least we get some fun interactions between Kuro and Main Guy that are pretty endearing (though not to the point where I can be bothered to remember the latter's actual name) also the green haired friend is a vampire. I know they're going to treat it as some big plot twist but it's just so obvious it's almost painful. I really want to like this show but this episode is a pretty clear step down. I know I'm really not the target audience for this, but the first episode was really cool, and I would be more than happy to stick with this show if it could average that level of quality. Hopefully next week we'll get a better showing.

I've seen previews and glanced at the manga a bit, but it didn't seem to grab my attention.

Kuro, Betelgeuse, and King should have a fight to see who truly deserves the title of Sloth. The one who does the least wins.

I think Kuro would win. Betelgeuse is oddly diligent for sloth and King would be late and miss the contest.

I wonder how many of those other Servamps we'll get to see this season. As others have pointed out, it seems like that Seven Deadly Sins is a popular gimmick to be used in anime these days.

This guy is quite something though...

Okay, can I just take this oppurtunity to say I'm fucking sick of the seven deadly sins being used in anime? Like, do I even have to list off the recent examples at this point? I only watch about 4 or 5 shows each season but it always seems like AT LEAST 1 of them is tied to the seven deadly sins in some way. It sure as shit doesn't help that the shows do nothing with the concept other than use it as an excuse to have characters that are just tokens of whatever sin they represent. It's not just over used, it's uninteresting. I swear to god, I'm going to instantly drop the next anime or manga that tries to do this. Anyone else feel my frustration?

It's definitely over used and used with various levels of success. I think the eponymous manga/anime uses the concept best because it assigns the sin to a character based on a crime they (supposedly) committed and it isn't just giving them a 2d stock personality.

I'd like for someone to mix it up and use the seven virtues instead once. XD That would be an interesting way to parody the over use of the seven deadly sins.

To be Fair Really ! If it's done right does it matter?

How many Idol shows have been done in one form or another ! I do watch some

There were 3 ladybugs scenes in 3 new animes this week ! And in Flying Witch last season ! ( They ae almost as popular as Pokemon Go / just kidding )

And the game to anime is just being overdone!

And I do like mech shows but there is a lot of them !

All the Academy School Type shows / Again some are really good / some Meh but really the same theme

How many chalkboards ? / dont they have high tech in Japan ?

How many festivals !

And in general the endless tropes used over and over / I could write a thesis on that! / I wiil stop at that!

A favorite though / The Swimsuit episode !
