Netflix dropped a new trailer for part I of the two part film, The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge Of Edinburgh, on Sep 25, 2022.
Though the movie is based on an original story by the original author Nakaba Suzuki himself, which focuses on Meliodas’ son Tristan, fans are skeptical about the movie, thanks to the largely unmemorable animation.
The comments on the trailer, uploaded to Netflix Anime’s official YouTube channel, were overflowing with sarcasm, as the anime was labelled a PS2 game and even a fan animation.
“Damn this looks amazing. I’m glad they began making games for PS2 again,” a user wrote.
“Wow this fanart is crazy, keep it up!!,” another comment on the trailer read.
Others compared the poor animation that was seen in the trailer of The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge Of Edinburgh to that of Ex-Arm anime. Twitter too exploded with memes, as Berserk and Seven Deadly Sins were put on the same boat when it came to getting poor anime adaptations.
Seven Deadly Sins’ fans were left wondering what they had done to deserve such a poor trailer as many zeroed in on the CGI used in the anime, as the main reason for the drop in quality of animation.
The quality of animation was even compared to that of a game, with one particular user equating its quality to that of a Facebook game.
Alfred Imageworks and Marvy Jack are animating The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge Of Edinburgh movie. It will premiere worldwide on Netflix in December 2022.
The cast includes Mikako Komatsu as Meliodas’ son Tristan. Komatsu will voice Tristan as a boy, while Ayumu Murase will voice Tristan as a teenager. Yuki Kaji will reprise his role as Meliodas.
The key staff members include:
- Chief Director: Noriyuki Abe (Nanatsu no Taizai Movie: Tenkuu no Torawarebito)
- Director: Bob Shirahata (Aguu: Tensai Ningyou)
- Script: Rintarou Ikeda (Nanatsu no Taizai Movie 2: Hikari ni Norowareshi Mono-tachi)
The official website describes the plot of the movie as:
Tristan inherits the power of the Goddess Clan and can heal people’s wounds and injuries, but he often ends up hurting others due to his inability to control his Demon Clan power. To protect his family, Tristan heads to Edinburgh Castle and meets a host of new friends along the way.
