The latest chapter of Nanatsu no Taizai was really awesome as the complete focus was on Zeldoris and his original magic power. The fight between the strongest has gotten more intense and we are going to see more epic action in the upcoming chapter, i.e. Nanatsu no Taizai chapter 288, which you definitely shouldn’t miss!
As the chapter went on, we can see that Zeldoris is clearly the strongest enemy at the moment as he is able to take on the combined power of Merlin, Escanor and Rueduciel without any issues. Chandler and Cusack have taken a step back from him, and they even remarks that they are no longer needed in the fight, and it’s true. Zeldoris’ magic power is “Ominous Nebula” and it pulls in all the living beings in his surrounding towards him and are hit by an unknown attack. We see that it’s an extremely strong power as the trio don’t have a chance against it. Even Rueduciel has taken considerable damage as his sword’s broken and he’s started bleeding. Merlin is using her magic to keep teleporting to a distance, along with Hendrickson and Gilthunder, and Escanor is using his strength to maintain a foothold.
The chapter presented with a totally one-sided attack as Zeldoris has stayed completely unharmed, even after taking Rueduciel’s attacks and Merlin’s attacks which proves that magic attacks don’t work on him. And his magic power nullifies physical attacks by hitting his opponents with an unknown attack. This makes his impervious to both physical and magical attacks!
Nanatsu no Taizai Chapter 288 Spoilers
Although the reveal of Zeldoris’ original power was amazing, I really enjoyed watching Escanor’s banter with Rueduciel. Rueduciel gives Escanor an order, but being the Lion’s sin of Pride, he doesn’t seem to care.
He’s even supporting Rueduciel so that he doesn’t get sucked in towards Zeldoris, but he simply let him go being frustrated by the constant orders. However, Merlin tells him to give him a hand and that’s when Escanor grabs him once again revealing that Merlin’s orders are a different story. The chapter concluded with Escanor and Rueduciel seemingly teaming up to take on Zeldoris and his extraordinary power!
The upcoming chapter will be focusing on this epic team-up between two of the strongest warriors, carrying the grace of “Sunshine” and “Flash”. It’ll be interesting to see how Escanor works with someone who’s giving him orders as he’s already established that he doesn’t like when anyone, other than Merlin and likely the other Sins, give him any kinds of orders.
The previous chapter didn’t really reveal the exact power level of Zeldoris, but it wouldn’t be wrong to think that he’s much stronger than Rueduciel at the moment as he’s been completely unharmed so far. It is to be seen how Escanor and Rueduciel are going to take on his original magic power as well as his Demon King power that makes him impervious to both physical and magical attacks. The Archangel might have some plan in his mind, but we need to see if Escanor goes along with that!
