Nanatsu no Taizai or The Seven Deadly Sins has come out with a much-awaited new season and we at Honey’s Anime are excited to watch more of our favorite characters. The last season left at a nail-biting cliffhanger with unexpected twists and the hopelessness of whether Meliodas and Elizabeth will reunite together, or better yet, whether Ban and Elaine will.
One of the things that really stands out about The Seven Deadly Sins is the fact that the anime takes care to flesh out its characters’ love lives a lot more than other shounen anime. Let’s face it, we all need a little more romantic love in our beloved shounen anime. Nanatsu no Taizai does just that by not just focusing on the main protagonists, Meliodas and Elizabeth being a couple, but also their friends and other supporting characters. With that being said, we at Honey’s Anime think this is the perfect time to rank the couples of the anime (there are a lot!) because this new season brought forth a new relationship! Read on to find out how we ranked the couples of The Seven Deadly Sins!
5. Gilthunder and Margaret
Ranking at number five, we have Gilthunder and Margaret. From a very young age, Gilthunder and Margaret have loved each other and he considered himself her personal guard. However, when the Holy Knights caused an uprising, Margaret hated him for being against her father. But when she realized Gilthunder’s true intentions, she realized how much she loved him when they shared a brief kiss before Gilthunder left to take care of the mess the Holy Knights made. That kiss sealed their love for each other and the two have constantly sacrificed each other to see their significant other happy like when Margaret offered to be possessed by Ludociel to save Gilthunder. Their unsaid feelings are stronger than ever and we hope this cute couple do find their happy ending soon!
4. Zeldris and Gelda
Zeldris and Gelda met each other when Gelda’s vampire clan was under Zeldris’ leadership. The two irrevocably fall in love but Gelda was ordered to be killed by the Demon King. However, Zeldris chose to prison her in a stone before retrieving her years later. As fate would have it, Gelda was released by Meliodas when Zeldris and the other Commandments were imprisoned. In this new season, Zeldris hopes to find Gelda and be reunited with her through Meliodas’ help. We still don’t know enough about this couple but we hope that we learn more through this season.
3. King and Diane
Next up, we have an interesting mix! The Fairy King and the Giantess have found love in each other! Love really knows no bounds and King and Diane are a true testament to it. The two met each other from a very young age but Diane does not remember till much later. The two are absolutely adorable together. Whatever King does not like to do, he can be easily motivated to do it if it means that Diane will be happy. Similarly, Diane has never abandoned King in his fights because she cares for him. The two shared a sweet kiss that held a lot of significance that Diane’s memories were back and that she loved King the most nonetheless. The fourth season teased the two of them getting married in the opening and we at Honey’s Anime are excited to see this development.
2. Meliodas and Elizabeth
Doomed from the very beginning as Meliodas was a demon and Elizabeth a goddess, it did not stop the two from falling in love with each other and pursuing each other till the ends of the earth. Even if it takes 3,000 years. As fate would have it, Meliodas and Elizabeth were cursed by the Supreme Deity and the Demon King. Meliodas became immortal and Elizabeth was reincarnated repeatedly where she would fall in love with Meliodas irrevocably and would die in three days if she ever remembered their past together.
Meliodas and Elizabeth are a true testament to the fact that nothing will stand in the way of their love for each other. Meliodas endured 3,000 years of suffering alone as he helplessly watched Elizabeth die repeatedly in front of his eyes. But despite the bleakness of the situation, he never once stopped loving her. Similarly, Elizabeth is always worried about Meliodas and wants to protect him the way he protects her. She hopes to become strong enough to save him simply because she wants to be that person to her significant other.
1. Ban and Elaine
Ban and Elaine probably have the worst situation out of all the other couples, even Meliodas and Elizabeth will probably have their happy ending. However, Ban and Elaine might not have the ending they deserve simply because Elaine is already dead. Ban and Elaine met each other when Ban was after the Fountain of Youth that Elaine guarded. The two fall in love with each other as they learn more about each other. Ban cured Elaine’s loneliness and she gave him purpose to live. However, during a fight with a demon, Elaine dies and Ban is granted immortality to avenge her.
We think that Ban and Elaine deserve to be on the top simply because of the bond the two share. When Elaine was reincarnated by Melascula, Ban loved her and tried to save her. He was confident he can get the love of his life back. The two know each other more than anyone else and you can see how that intensifies their love for each other. They love each other despite knowing each other’s flaws. Knowing that they might not have a happy ending, they still cherish each other in the time they do have and never stop fighting to be united forever.
Love is in the air in the world of Seven Deadly Sins and there are other honorable mentions like Gowther and Nadja, Monspeet and Derieri, Griamore and Veronica, and of course the unrequited yet honorable love of Escanor for the ever-amazing Merlin. There is always more romantic love to be found in Nanatsu no Taizai and that’s what makes it such a special and unique anime for us at Honey’s Anime.
