The Seven Deadly Sins Watch Order Based On Release Date


The first release in the franchise happened with the series called The Seven Deadly Sins, 5 October 2015, which had 24 episodes.


The series was later on followed by two amazing OVAs and then by the second season.


By marking the 100 episodes, the franchise released every content to watch and kept it in run till 2 July with a second movie called The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed By Light.


1. The Seven Deadly Sins

Started on 5 October 2014, and the first season ended on 29 March 2015 with 24 episodes.


The first episode is more of an introduction to the story as well as the characters however, it easily gets into the pace and starts to show all the themes.


Whether it is related to Meliodas agreeing to help Elizabeth or Hendrickson going against him, everything was dealt with well within the plotting and design.


The series also plays well with the emotions that can be seen through Ban's way of resurrecting Elaine and Elizabeth sacrificing herself for peace.


The series ends with a judgment over Ban who was sentenced to death for destroying the forest of the Fairy King.


And thus became Undead Ban from Bandit Ban.


2. The Seven Deadly Sins: Bandit Ban

Following the 15th volume of the manga, this OVA was included in the first season but had its existence.


It becomes very emotional with the storyline as it gets into the past of Ban before he was related to Seven Deadly Sins in any way.


Starting with the simple organization the story dives into the complexity of characters, especially Ban, and becomes a kind of puzzle that goes between the conflict between him and King.


The story thus becomes sad at times through the past of Ban but was not found in the main series.


It reveals the background of why he and Elaine have a close relationship. Overall, the first OVA is a win-win situation for many fans.


3. The Seven Deadly Sins: Heroes Fun Time -Extra Stories Compilation

Just like the first OVA, it also falls in the first season but carries a story that was not found in any series or movie, getting its own identity.


It follows the story of the 16th volume of the manga series. Shifting its tone from emotional to comic, the OVA was really great at times.


However, no progression or development was seen in the characters or the storyline. Coming to the comic time then it can be seen through the story of Elizabeth and Hawk as well as the King and the protagonist Meliodas.


However, it becomes boring when the story of the Holy Knights is followed.


4. The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War

Starting with Elizabeth and Hawk, the scenes also carry Seven Deadly Sins winning the Kingdom of Liones from the Holy Knights.


With these they tried to indulge in a peaceful life, however, later on, got distracted and broke with a new threat.


This new threat has all the signs of the Holy War and brings anarchy to the lives of the characters.


With just 4 episodes, the expectation was pretty low however, the plot has given the twist.


The art was considered to be beautiful with colors that are a treat to the eyes but the animation was quite poor.


Change in characters did not work in the favor as can be seen through Gilthunder becoming a crybaby from a giant man.


It can also be seen through Elizabeth and Jericho.


5. The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments

With action and adventure, the series has 24 episodes released on 13 January 2018 and ended on 30 June 2018.


The whole series was related to the battle that happened between the Captain of Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas, and the Great Holy Knight named Hendrickson.


When Hendrickson broke the seal, all the 10 Commandments were scattered. However, Meliodas identifies them through a mysterious connection.


The story then carries destruction that goes with Demons and that's why members of Seven Deadly Sins had to meet blood and terror to stop them.


Despite getting mixed feelings in terms of the story, development can be seen not just in the story but also in the character.


It had a goofy and adventurous plot filled with surprises and many meetings that came with an over dramatic effect.


6. The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky

Despite having a flat story, the movie carried great art and sound with the amazing enjoyment that comes with the story.


However, the characters remain stagnant throughout the movie as the only thing that was added was the abilities and strength of Elizabeth.


Meliodas and Hawk went on the quest for a mystical ingredient called Sky Fish present in the land (Sky Temple) inhabited by Celestials.


Carrying a similar appearance to the criminal called Solaad, Meliodas was imprisoned. Meanwhile, the land went under the threat of a Demon Clan who broke the seal and got hold of everything, thus leading to a war.


However, the Seven Deadly Sins and Celestials got led by their power over Indura of Retribution, a beast.


7. The Seven Deadly Sins: Heroes’ Frolic

The OVA called The Seven Deadly Sins: Heroes' Frolic was released in the third season but like the other two animations, it also has its own identity.


It carried the story of the 34th volume of the manga. It features all the main characters of Seven Deadly Sins as well as Hawk who were going happily into their daily life.


It generally showed their life and relationship before this split. Development in character and story was not seen however, the sweet and funny story carried well with adventures.


8. The Seven Deadly Sins: Imperial Wrath of the Gods

Meliodas and the rest of Seven Deadly Sins were enjoying life after saving the Kingdom of Liones but soon they were put on trials to defeat the 10 Commandments.


With their past trauma, they were on a mission of defeating the 10 Commandments and giving a halt to every evil plan.


In the process, they started uncovering the truth about each other and also those around them.


Coming to characters then each character was built very strong and has got nice progress with their power and personality.


However, animation lacks at some times but the story overlaps it by creating new mysteries and connecting every plot with balance.


9. The Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon’s Judgment

With a kind of alliterative plot, the series is started with a new threat coming on the Kingdom of Liones.


To save the Kingdom, the Seven Deadly Sins got scattered to defeat the enemy and rescue the protagonist Elizabeth.


At the same time, the truth that ended the Holy War almost 3000 years ago also came to the forefront and caused many old friends to go against each other.


With the adventure continued by the members of the Seven Deadly Sins, one can see a great power releasing from the characters.


It carries confusing action and plot at times where one can see more of the same story taking place back and again.


However, one of the biggest advantages can be seen through the romantic side of the story.


10. The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed By Light

By carrying a great story art and animation, the movie has a spectacular vision which comes with Meliodas and his friends.


The story is about Meliodas and his friends jumping back into action when their new era of peace got distracted or threatened by a magical alliance that can bring an end to everything.


Development in characters like Meliodas and Zeldris is the main focus although Supreme and Elizabeth remain stagnant.


It can be seen through a brotherly bond growing between Meliodas and Zeldris. Overall the movie was well progressed and it carries a lot of things, like the marriage of Elizabeth and Meliodas.
