Ok i have question for all the anime savvy.
Why is nanatsu no taizai a netflix exclusive, as far as i know they only have the distributing rights, they did not influence the creation of the series nor its initial broadcast in Japan.

Anyone mind enlighten me?

It's likely simply the case that they asked (and paid) for rights to have it exclusively, and the people they asked agreed to that.

They call something a netflix original (or exclusive) every time Netflix has exclusive streaming rights for something in your country.

Here where I live, some shows get called "Netflix Original" even though they are not produced by them just because they have (or were the first to have) exclusive streaming rights in my country. It is highly irritating sometimes.
