The Seven Deadly Sins are a band of knights in the land of Britannia who had disbanded ten years earlier after being framed for plotting against the kingdom called liones. They spread out all over Britannia due to being wanted by the liones knights. The Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas, Ban, Diane, Merlin, King, Gowther, and Escandor all have special abilities and powers which was the main reason why people believed the sins to be harmful.

Now, ten years later after the sins parted their ways, Liones’ third princess, Elizabeth Liones sets out to find the Seven Deadly Sins’ leader, Meliodas. When she does, they search out Meliodas’s comrades (the other six sins) so they can clear their names and liberate Liones from the Holy Knights, who were being manipulated by a demon named Fraudrin who also originally framed the seven deadly sins. As the Sins fight against Fraudrin and try to prove their innocence they come across many other problems and enemies. The sins also learn more about their powers and abilities and grow stronger.

There are four seasons of the show and each season has about 24 episodes besides season two which only has four. This show is definitely binge-worthy, I finished all four seasons in less than a month. I recommended this show to many people who are wanting to start watching anime or are just looking for a great storyline with complicated and diverse characters.
