There’s been lot of building excitement for the second season offering of Seven Deadly Sins – thankfully I did get into S1 a bit late so I can’t complain about waiting but I would like to take the time to clarify the confusion fellow fans of the show are experiencing today.
Remember last week’s #AnimeMonday where I live tweeted Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of a Holy War? The four episode special that I made everyone watch to prepare for Season 2? WELP that’s your “Season 2”. At least, now you can watch it on Netflix directly instead of your preferred anime streaming site.
There seems to be no official word on the actual Season 2 of Seven Deadly Sins but that doesn’t mean that Signs of a Holy War doesn’t deserve spins. It really was a great OVA four episode special and the story takes place about a year after the events of S1 so you are able to catch up on your faves and learn a quite a bit about the lore.
It’s still required watching if you’re into the series – it is not four filler episodes.
I’m a bit disappointed but I should have known, so I’m sorry for joining in on the S2 hype without following my instincts and doing some more research.
Next week’s #AnimeMonday post will be announced since it will no longer be S2 of Seven Deadly Sins.
Since this was this past Monday’s #AnimeMonday I will go ahead and link the Live Tweet threads. Episodes 1-2 | Episode 3-4

We are opposing forces
Your fire quenched by my water
It makes you cold and still
My warmth runs deep
It always finds you
You are fire
When we touch it’s either a storm
Cosmic law says
We are both destruction
In love; we are life and death
Chaos and peace
The silent moments between us used to be unbearable
Now, I savor the opportunity to cherish you
To completely devote myself to the ease of your laughter
The careful way you choose your words
I close my eyes and I feel myself reach toward you
My hands eager to recapture every curve of your face
To brush my fingers through your hair
Recapturing the intimacy we tried to restrain
You meet my eyes and everything inside of you
whispers my name like a prayer, it is clear and unwavering
The distance between us is closed and I hear your declaration
And we both sigh in relief
It took fifteen years for me to recognize you and another fifteen to try to forget you. I buried you in my work, duty and vices but I was never sated. You were my dream and I couldn’t conjure anything better.
We tried throughout the years to grab snatches of each other but we were always unsuccessful. The timing was never right. Our feelings never in the same place. We’d taken turns feeling abandoned and betrayed.
But we did love.
Lives built apart from each other started to seem like prisons and we found each other again. Waded through the pain and rose above it. Determined to know happiness.
You, hesitant. Me, unsure.
Seven Deadly Sins
The Fine Print:
Written By: Nakaba Suzuki
First Published: October 2012
Anime Written By: Shotaro Suga
Adapted for Anime: Fall 2014
Directed by: Tensai Okamura
Composers: Hiroyuki Sawano + Takafumi Wama
A great opening theme is always the indicator of an amazing Anime and it’s fair to say that Hiroyuki Sawano and Takafumi Wama took some time to stunt on us a little bit. We got multiple opening and ending themes and I haven’t been this impressed with an overall anime soundtrack since Gangsta.
The best way to spend a Snow Day is boo’d up with a warm beverage, a good watch and maybe some company. This Snow Day, I’d like to recommend some light horror watching that will thrill but not completely terrify. The perfect recipe for cuddles and great conversation.
All of my recommendations will be duos, best watched together.
Nightwatch is first, Daywatch the follow up.
The best way to categorize these two would be Urban Supernatural Fantasy. The war between the light and the dark plays out again, this time with gusto. In Russia, apocalypse does you!
In preparation for the hot fire that’s is Season 2 of Seven Deadly Sins, next week’s #AnimeMonday Live Tweet will be Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of a Holy War. A four episode special that premiered last August, Holy War will feature all of the characters we’ve come to know in love in S1 in a brand new story.
Season 2 is schedule to Premiere on Feb 17th!
Title: Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of a Holy War

Thank you for hanging with me on Twitter for today’s completion of Boku No Hero Academia (My Hero Academy) Season 1!
