The Seven Deadly Sins is an excellent fantasy anime that takes you on an adventure with demons, holy knights, magic, and emotionally satisfying action. However, with 76 episodes down the line so far, there are a few times when pesky fillers stop your connectivity with the plot.
Nonetheless, in Nanatsu no Taizai, The Shape of Love plays an important role in giving a deeper insight in Gowther’s character as he tries to find the meaning of love, with a glimpse of Escanor shown at the very beginning!
Not to mention the Ban vs. Meliodas part 2, these side stories foreshadow some important events that would happen further in the next season and shouldn’t normally be skipped.
