    A while ago it was about saving Meliodas' emotions, next it was starting to look like the world war arc from Naruto then it became about Estarossa taking all the commandments to make himself a FV candidate now we find out that everything about him is fabricated and he's actual a very loyal archangel....

    I kind've don't know where the story is going and not even really in a good way. It looks like Nakaba has ADHD and is hoping from one story climax to another.

    We know a bit about the supreme deity and nothing about the mother of chaos . So, I think Nakaba will go to them . the timehas come to reveal everything about them .
    Not to mention reveal more about the demon king

    I really don't hope that to happen. But I can't imagine there will be a final villain other than DK or SD.

    I think Nakaba knows what exactly will happen and how his stroy will end. I'm too optimistic

    I mean either that or Maelrossa will continue hunting for commandments & graces so he has the power of both the DK and SD but considering how hard it is for him to handle just 3 commandments I doubt it. I also don't think the DK or SD will be the fv they just seem like necessary evil forces of nature.

    I'm not really sure what your saying OP. All of this plot of the second holy war has been forshadowed from chapter 50 at the very least. All of these developments as miniarcs are apart of that big arc. And yeah, all of this has been forshadowed for a long time, so its not as if i can complain about it coming out of nowhere or act like its badly handled perse

    That's lovely but foreshadowing or not it doesn't change that the focus of the story has been jumping around. We went from Meliodas becoming demon king to holy war to Estarossa shenanigans to Mael mind-wipe story. This doesn't even really feel like the climax of the series is happening like at all because of how jumbled the pacing is.

    Yes, because everyone is doing different things in different places like different pieces of a puzzle. That is what different perspectives is called. As for pacing, all of the events happens within a few days, its true. Im not sure why that's an issue

    Again, i'm not sure what your asking exactly. You'll find out where the story is going when it gets there

    This is where Demon Gowther comes in. That is the final plot line.

    I just was thinking about what if OG Gowther was trying to use something of Mother of chaos( whatever it was ) to end the holy war but then The DK noticed that and imprisoned him

    That's not good storytelling. "different perspectives" is a phrase related to something else entirely so i'm not sure where you were even going with that excuse.
    You can have different things happen without making the story muddled, look at Infinity war look at Batman v Superman....one of them did it right the other did it wrong. If you have the slightest bit of comprehension skills you can guess which one NNT falls under and why it doesn't work.

    That's what's called an in-cohesive story. Which is an actual term used for film and storytelling.

    I mean, if you want to say its not good storytelling and that's your main point with this thread, that's fine. But i don't think many people would agree. I certainly do not believe that in the least. I mean, i'd assume the only reason anyone would have a problem with this is if they cant follow along with the different plot threads, but for me anyways, it seems pretty easy if one is paying attention

    Eventually, all of it will come together as part of the main plot, what Mel and Ban are doing, what Mael and those fighting him are doing, what the demons are doing and what the assault squad is doing

    By that logic most competent critics hate the DC franchise because "they can't keep up with it" Not the worst argument you've brought to the table but it is kind've pushing it in terms of common sense.

    I agree with everything Inuhanyou is saying.

    It may seem like random jumping around if you can't see how every event the author moves to next fills in blank spots left in the past and moves the main plot forward.

    For example the story couldn't very well end if:

    -Diane never got her memories back
    -Ban never solved his Elaine problems
    -King Arthur was never fleshed out(which isn't over yet apparently)
    -Mel and Elizabeth never confronted their parents
    -The mystery of Mael was never solved
    -etc

    Like Inu said, its like a puzzle the author is piecing together so we can eventually see the big picture.

    Where was it said that Chaos is a person and a female?

    Databook, Merlin's favourite animal is listed as the "mother of chaos".

    Exactly, I was thinking along these same lines.

    Basically, I think that Chaos was a female God who was sealed away by the Demon King and Supreme Diety. Demon Gowther loved Choas and wanted to free her. So, the Demon King created the selfishness commandment and imprisoned Gowther by giving it to him.

    As time went on, he would create Doll Gowther in the image of Choas. In the war he sacrificed himself to get rid of the commandment and to ensure that he had an indirect hold on the Love commandment and the Sunshine grace. When he would be revived, he would combine both the powers to mimic the powers of the Demon King and Supreme Dirty and break the seal of Choas.

    Lol, it would make a good fanfiction.

    Also don't forget the tag, #gowtheristhefinalvillain

    Interesting, it's possible that Choas is Gowther's lover.

    Also, this pretty much gives more confirmation that Merlin is in cahoots with Gowther in this conspiracy. Merlin already has both demonic and angelic powers, called Gowther's heart worthless when it is heavily hinted to be not and her connection with Choas.

    It's interesting. #gowtheristhefinalvillain

    That's not really implied anywhere since the doll was originally shaped after OGowther's lover but he gave him a male body so he wouldn't develop any feelings for it and violate his own selfless decree. The mother of chaos is apparently literally an animal if the databook is to be trusted. She or it is also the origin of every creature or monster that is not part of the big five clans.

    Could be, I am just speculating here. Still it would be a nice nod to Choas.

    the mother of chaos isnt implied to be a "person" but only an animal at the most

    This is happening because there are many players in this war and they all have different intentions and goals.

    We basically have:-
    • Ludoshel who wants to destroy the demons.
    • Seven Deadly Sins wants to restore Melodias's emotions.
    • Melodias who wants to become Demon King and save Elizabeth.
    • Zeldoris who also wants to become Demon King and rule over demonkind.
    • Mael who also wanted to become the Demon King and is basically a chaos force now.
    That's like five players in a single war... The scene is changing because the author is focusing well on all the sides. The only reason why Mael is getting the spotlight is because the author is setting up Mael to be the cornerstone of the war.

    So, it ends up making the war unique.... because it's not a black and white war, it's a grey war where multiple sides are cooperating or are in opposition with each other.
