Nanatsu no Taizai is releasing awesome chapters one after the other and the latest one was just what I expected! The chapter picked up from the exact point that the previous chapter ended and in this article, we will be having a quick recap of the fight between the strongest and then see what to expect from the upcoming Nanatsu no Taizai chapter 287!
As I said, the previous chapter ended with the setup of an epic battle between the strongest from both sides – Merlin, Escanor and Rueduciel vs. Zeldoris, Chandler and Cusack! The chapter began with Escanor dealing the first blow on the demons, which naturally didn’t have any effect. Chandler tried to retaliate but was caught off-guard by Merlin who used Double Impact on all the three demons. They remained unharmed as Merlin reveals that these demons are much stronger than the Ten Commandments, with Chandler and Cusack’s power levels are at 173,000 and 168,000 respectively. Meanwhile, Chandler and Cusack comes to attack Merlin but she is able to swat them with some technique. Rueduciel gets behind the duo and uses his speed to blow them both away and finally getting close to Zeldoris. They both draw their swords and go at it at full speed which results in a few cuts on both their bodies!
Cusack gets angry as Zeldoris receives more damage in the face-off and he comes to attack Rueduciel, however Hendrickson pushes him out of the way. Rueduciel heals the damage he’s taken and attacks Cusack, but Zeldoris comes in between them.
Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter 287 Spoilers
Rueduciel is surprised that Zeldoris can withstand his attack easily following which Zeldoris takes a stance which scares both Cusack and Chandler as they both immediately retreat and get to a distance away from him. Zeldoris then tells that he’s about to show them his true original magic power, something that we’ve not seen yet in the story!
That was the conclusion of the story as we’ll be seeing Zeldoris’ original magic power and how strong it will be, as he already possesses the Demon King’s power as well. The next chapter is titled “Prince of Darkness” which clearly tells us that the complete focus is going to be on the Demon Prince.
Since there are no official spoilers out yet, or any leaks, we can only make some predictions and wait for the spoilers to surface on the internet. Going by what we’ve seen in the manga lately, the next few chapters will be focusing on this battle alone as every other battle on all the fronts have been resolved.
Estarossa is now back to being Mael and Ban and Meliodas’ emotions have also successfully escaped from the Purgatory. So, it’s time to get back to the only remaining battle and focus completely on it as the trio is trying to bring Meliodas back to his sanity. Since the real Meliodas is currently in the cocoon, absorbing the commandments, he’ll come out stronger than ever and will prove to be a troublesome for, at least until his emotions are returned to him.
However, we saw that the power levels of the strongest warriors were revealed in this chapter with Chandler and Cusack’s at 173,000 and 168,000 respectively and Rueduciel’s at 201,000. It’s concerning because Escanor’s highest power level is supposed to be at 142,000 when he becomes “The One” for one minute, so his current power level would be lower than that and it’s getting weaker as Mael is going to return to his original form. Also, Merlin is quite strong, but she’s not as strong as the others and might be the one with the lowest power level. Also, we don’t yet know the power level of Zeldoris but there’s a high chance that he’s going to eclipse even Rueduciel’s when he unleashes his original magic power in the next chapter.
This is the one thing that I really hate about the Seven Deadly Sins manga because their power levels keep increasing without any explanation. Remember when Meliodas and Escanor fought each other, Meliodas was in his “Assault Mode”, just like when he was the leader of the Ten Commandments, and he was defeated by Escanor which suggests that his power levels were below 142,000. So, after the latest chapter, we can assume that that wasn’t him at his strongest, otherwise the Four Archangels wouldn’t fear him. His true power has yet to be revealed, but back then, the author tried to show that this was Meliodas at his strongest, which clearly isn’t the case now!
Coming back to Nanatsu no Taizai chapter 287, we are going to see the Demon Prince take charge of the situation by unleashing his real power and overwhelming all of his opponents. We are also going to see his true power levels, and there’s a high chance that it will be much higher than that of Rueduciel! So, we just have to wait a few days before the new chapter drops.
Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter 287 Release Date
There are no breaks next week, so you can expect the upcoming chapter to release according to it’s schedule. The official release date of the chapter is 31st October, 2018 but the raw scans will be available 2-3 days prior to that.
