    I'm skeptical about Esta learning too much from this ass whooping.

    If there would be anything, maybe it would be once he's freed from his commandment. As far as he has it though, I can't see him becoming that much more rational. I would think Escanor would have been the best medicine to make him be more careful but that clearly wasn't enough. It seems like maybe due to his curse, he has a weird greed like obsession over wanting to take certain things and will go to any length to do so. It also seems to prevent him from thinking very rationally. The fact that he was the demon kings child but didn't even have the power of darkness is already extremely suspicious too. I wonder what type of mother those 3 have....

    Anyway, Mel and even Zel have at least shown they're capable of being able to show some modicum of compassion in their lives. I would really like to see some more backstory on how the 3 brothers grew up with one another really. Zel seems to look at Estarossa with certain skepticism at times but still treats him like someone he cares about. Even risking his life to save him against Escanors attack. On the other hand, Estarossa seems like he would very quickly throw Zel under the bus if the moment arose where he could further himself in some way. Even his admiration for Meliodas was unstable and goes to the wayside for his goals too.

    Probably more than anything, he's really just a giant victim of the commandments curse and not much will change for his maturity until he is freed from it. Till then, he's an outcast and a wildcard that could go in numerous different ways. It seems like he even has potential to be set up as a major antagonist...and who knows, perhaps final villain.

    I mean it may sound like a stretch to give him that much future hype but the one thing this series has often had huge emphasis on is the romance aspect of it. It's literally present for so many characters in this series and plays a huge roll on the good and even bad sides. It's one of the biggest themes in the series...maybe even the largest one honestly.

    I feel like Estarossa could be a twisted embodiment of one who never was loved much to begin with and constantly craves to satiate that feeling through power and his unusual connection to Elizabeth. As an outsider and wildcard, it seems like it would be easily within his grasp to take that roll once all this main business is settled. It also gives him the potential to become an even more dangerous monster than the Demon King if he's able to actually one day absorb all the commandments. At the very least, the Demon King seems like a rational actor but Estarossa would surely turn into a complete insane monster of longing. He would make the Indura look like nothing in comparison. There's just far too much potential and I'm interesting to see where Nakaba takes him.

    I have a feeling that inside that world of gods, it has some law which can go effectively against the power of darkness.
    If Nakaba has already gone as far as create the domain of gods for the graces, he surely has lots of opportunities for the creation of bunch of new techniques inside it. Really looking forward to seeing them.

    Well, we are supposed to have Arthur's story as a sequel possibly.
    That being said, it's more of a casual world-building thing that we've pretty much seen already, with both the vampires and the trolls as the more notable ones.

    Estarossa. He's a lot like Escanor.

    They both badass-looking.
    They both spit out epic lines.
    They're some of the strongest characters in Taizaiverse.
    They both got lucky they gained a fraction of the power of the Gods.
    They're both quite cocky especially to their opponents.
    They both think they're the strongest there is.
    "Love" affects both of them deeply.

    The difference is...

    People are waiting for Escanor to get his first fat unquestionable L but he just keeps on racking up Ws.
    People are waiting for Estarossa to get his first fat unquestionable W but he just keeps on racking up Ls.

    We've had all kinds on theories on how Estarossa killed Mael but Tarmiel was right to question it because it just doesn't seem feasable at all for him to do that. Either Mael was at his weakest or he was ambushed or otherwise distracted.

    Or maybe it is even worse and the exact same scenario happened with Estarossa grossly overestimating himself, getting his ass beat something fierce and as Mael is about to kill him, Elizabeth steps in, protecting him, because she still sees the good in the lad.

    I mean, the only goddess clan member who is arguably stronger than the archangels when unleashing full potential is her, right? Supreme Goddess aside, I mean. So what if she held Mael at bay and Estarossa simply saw his chance and went for a cheap kill? Maybe it's a supressed memory, maybe Elizabeth made him forget to protect him or cover up that she essentially partook in the murder of one of her own kind. Wouldn't put it past Nakaba because just loving Meliodas doesn't seem nearly as huge a sin to warrant her shaky status among th goddesses.
