We finally have an amazing update on the Nanatsu no Taizai manga series. The previous chapter ended on a cliffhanger with Elizabeth being choked by Estarossa and we still had no updates on Ban and what’s he been doing in the Purgatory all this time. But since this week was a double chapter week, as Nanatsu no Taizai chapter 267 and 268 were released, we got to see some amazing new developments.
The article clearly contains spoilers for the latest chapter; so if you haven’t read them yet and don’t want to spoil anything, then you should go read the chapter first and then come back here for a discussion.
Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter 267
The chapter began where the last chapter ended, with Elizabeth’s neck in Estarossa’s hands. However, it didn’t last long as Elizabeth showed off some of her powers by knocking down Estarossa and getting free from his hold.
After being free, Elizabeth looks around and remembers that they are at Heaven’s Theater where she and Meliodas used to meet 3000 years ago in secret. Meanwhile, King teams up with the Archangels and Derieri in order to save Elizabeth and hopefully take down Estarossa as well. Back at the Heaven’s Theater, Estarossa tells Elizabeth that he fell in love with her but she always loved Meliodas. He even mentions that he confided in Meliodas about his feelings for her and goes on a rampage once again as the commandments he absorbed are being rejected by his body.
The scene then cuts to Camelot where Meliodas is taking in the commandments without any kind of rejections at all.
Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter 268
The chapter 268 finally brought the fan-favorite character back into the limelight as we’ve not seen the Fox’s sin of Greed, Ban, for a long time.
Due to his time in the Purgatory, which happens to be decades or even centuries, Ban has transformed into a monster, a literal fox but he soon regains control of his self when he remembers Elaine.
He is still looking for Meliodas’ emotions in Hell but not knowing what he actually should look out for, he’s confused and stranded. He’s grown weak by spending so much time in the Purgatory and he’s look has changed as well!
As he’s making his way through the hell looking for the captain’s emotions, he comes across a dragon who engages in a fight with him. He gets squished and blasted away but thanks to his immortality, he regenerates and the fight continues.
The fight goes on for a long, long time and at the end, we see that the Dragon was in fact Meliodas’ emotions as he is seen laying next to Ban!
The next chapter, titled “Purgatory Life”, will probably focus more on Ban and Meliodas in hell and will explore what they are going to do next.
