Cursed By Light in Japan, which is the second Seven Deadly Sins movie.
This review doesn’t have spoilers about the movie. But, if you haven’t watched Dragon’s Judgement, which is the last season of the anime or you haven’t read the manga.
I’ll suggest that you watch one of our other videos.
You have been warned. Let’s start.

What is the movie ¨Cursed by light”?
This is the second Seven Deadly Sins movie, but compared to the first one this movie was written by Nakaba Suzuki, the original author of Nanatsu No Taizai.
I’ll talk more about this in a second but it gives an expanded ending to the story.
Is the movie canon?
Compared with the movie Prisoners of the Sky where there is a lot of discussion about whether it’s canon.
Cursed by light, the new movie it’s 100% canon and it’s written by the original author. Also, the events of the movie don’t overlap or retcon the story so you can consider it as canon.
For example, the two villains already appeared or mentioned in the story.
Dahlia appeared for the first time in one of King’s missions in the 3DS Game Unjust Sin.
While Dubs was mentioned in Chapter 220 and Chapter 337.
When does the movie take place?
In the timeline of Nanatsu, it takes place before Meliodas agrees to be the king of Britannia. Which is between chapters 344 and 345 of the manga. Or, halfway through episode 24 of Dragon Judgment, the last season of the anime, right before the birth of Tristan, the son of Meliodas and Elizabeth.
Is the movie worth watching?
Remember that 7DS is a love story between Meliodas and Elizabeth.
But, as you can see in the PV for the movie it is heavily focused on Meliodas and Zeldris.
That’s what the Nanatsu no Taizai: Hikari ni Norowareshi Mono-tachi is about.
The movie blends very well with the story and gives a better sense of closure.
I think that the movie’s story was phenomenal. The soundtrack was magnificent and, the voice actors did an amazing job.
As a fan of Seven Deadly Sins, the movie was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me since it’s the end of an anime that I love.
I think that the movie is worth watching and worthwhile addition to the story of 7DS.
I’m sure you will love it too.
How was the animation and which studio is responsible?
To give you a bit of background, the first two seasons of 7DS were animated by A1 Pictures which is the same studio as SAO.
Then, there was a change in the animation studio, so Studio Deen animated the last two seasons and this movie.
Since the last 2 seasons (Wrath of Gods and Dragon’s Judgment) had some very questionable animation, I know you want to know whether the animation of the movie falls short of expectations.
The animation is way better than the anime, but if you want to go for comparisons it’s not as extraordinary as Shingeki No Kyojin, SAO, Fate Stay Night or Kimetsu No Yaiba.
But, I think that the movie has good animation and meets the standards so you won’t have any issue enjoying the animation.
Remember that Nanatsu No Taizai has a magnificent story with a lot of plot twists.
Totally the opposite of Kimetsu No Yaiba, where the story is below average and it doesn’t have as many plot twists.
Where can you watch the movie?
Only in Japanese theaters.
As I always tell you, I know that you’re now desperately looking for the torrent of the movie, but you won’t find it.
Japan is quite strict about filming a movie inside the cinema. Believe me when I say that you won’t find the torrent.
Besides, keep in mind that downloading a torrent is piracy and you can get into trouble. Not to mention that torrenting affects the ability to make these movies)
Since Netflix has the rights for 7DS we can assume that the movie will be available on Netflix but there isn’t any official announcement yet. So you just need to wait.
Is this the last adventure of 7DS?
Yes and no.
It’s most likely to be the last adventure within the story named 7DS, but as you might know there is a sequel called Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse which focuses on Tristan, the son of Meliodas and Elizabeth.
So, I’m sure that you’ll see Ban, King, and the other members of Nanatsu No Taizai in the future.
I’ll talk more about Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in an upcoming video where I’ll do a review of this movie with spoilers.
