    Has anyone ever noticed that all the main "couples" in this manga have or involve someone who looks like a child :geg


    Meliodas looks like a kid for no reason, and on top of that decided that Elizabeth was his woman when she was an infant :psyduck. Then goes on to sexually assault her constantly, despite knowing who she is. She's also only sixteen as well.


    Bahn and Elaine: Elaine looks like a child


    King and Diane: King knew her as a child and basically raised her. Also, he too looks like a child. Like, why couldn't he simply have written Diane as being basically the same age as she is now, considering they live for hundreds of years and in the time they spent together she doesn't seem to have aged (or if she did it was very minimal).


    Escanor and Merlin: Merlin's real form is a child :psyduck :psyduck :psyduck Why?



    Now, don't get me wrong, King and Diane are nowhere near as horrendous/egregious as the others ones on this list, but holy shit. Even Ban and Elaine wouldn't be alarming in and of itself, because she and King are supposed to be fairy's and have smaller bodies, but for fucks sake when every single romance involve a childlike looking character, it's a symptom of a problem.

    I mean seriously, what the fuck :gglife? See, its shit like this that eventually made me stop reading this shitshow altogether. And King and Diane were one of my favorite couples too before he did that shit smh

    And it's not like the developments are much better or make up for this creepiness.

    Meliodas and Elizabeth get a lot of lipservice about their relationship. We hear that they have this great bond, that they love each other so much, etc,, but we don't really see that develop. It just seems like Elizabeth attaches herself to Meliodas and instantly trusts him (despite the fact that he keeps groping her) while barely having moments between their characters where they truly get to know one another or even have a conversation that's not about the plot or the Boar Hat. Meliodas says he feels like he has a duty to her and she's the most important person, but, again, they barely shared any moments together outside of him saving her. Their relationship doesn't feel justified. The "reincarnated love" is some of the worst written, laziest shit I've seen in a minute, and actually diminishes the couple as a whole. They didn't fall for each other not because they got to know one another, felt a connection, and built a bond through time spent and loved each other for who they were. They love each other because they're supposed to. It doesn't really matter who Elizabeth is as a human being, Meliodas would have loved her all the same (as, again, he decided she was his when she was a baby), and vice versa. It's shit, and what's worse is built on an already somewhat weak foundation.

    Ban and Elane's 7 day tru love (that we didn't even get to see develop) is nowhere near close to resembling anything interesting, engaging, emotional, or complex. Elane is a bland, one-note character and she and Ban have boring, one-note chemistry. That they shun an actually interesting and fun character Jericho who has actual chemistry with Bahn for this shit is one of the seven deadly sins of this manga.

    King and Diane in addition to the above, with the memory loss bullshit has one horrible development after the next.

    It's such a shame too, because this wouldn't even be a problem if romance wasn't so embeded into the plot of this manga, but shockingly, it's actually one of the most romance driven shounen manga I've seen (in that a main driving motivation for many of the characters is romantic love).

    When you say it like that, Nakaba seems quite suspicious...

    I don't see any problem with Meliodas and Elizabeth judging by their story together since 3000 years.

    Nice way to ignore the manga completely about their sad curse and fate.

    16 was also legal back in the days of Medieval Era.

    Well, Meliodas is too muscular and buffed to be a Kid without hitting Puberty.

    He is a midget young Adult in reality, appearence wise.

    Well, his personality and attitude state otherwise.

    He is literally the oldest character in the entire manga now beside his Father of course.

    You mean the most troll out of the verse lol. With his emotions, he is chill and troll around.
    Without it, he is the most badass and serious out of all.

    The childish award is for Diane, you missed your chance lol.

    Also a child is easy to read and Meliodas is literally the most complex guy to read in the entire verse, repeated several time.

    No one truly know what is inside his head lol.

    A kid also don't self blame himself but always reject the blame into someone else.
