Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 4 introduced the demon king, Meliodas’ father, who has been living in Purgatory. The first season of the anime saw Ban going right into Purgatory, following Meliodas’ feelings so that they can stand a better chance at saving him. But to return to the real world, Ban and Meliodas will have to go through the demon lord. The last episode of the anime brought the fight against Chandler, Zeldris, and Cusack to the peak.
Merlin and Escanor were having a hard time against Zeldris, but it looks like soon the anime will move on to the next stage as Meliodas’ incubation is almost complete. So far, Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 has focused much on Ban and Escanor’s side with a little side to Estarossa and Elisabeth’s side. Maybe, later on, the demon king might appear into the fights, but since we don’t know what Meliodas is up to, we don’t know what he will do when he comes out of incubation.
Meliodas will come out stronger than before; he has absorbed other commandments and is now going through a transformation. Hopefully, Ban will make it in time as now he only has to confront the demon lord. Their encounter doesn’t seem like it might end up in a fight. But we will find out more on that end next week when the next episode comes out.
Seven Deadly Sins Seasons 5 Episode 5 will release next week with more updates when Meliodas and Ban finally confront the demon lord. The new episodes will be available online on Funimation and Crunchyroll in both sub and dub episodes. The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 dubbed episodes are not yet out, so they will release later in the season.
Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 4: Ban and Meliodas Meets The Demon King
Things on Meliodas and Ban’s side seem to have settled down as he now only has to confront his father about why he locked his feelings in Purgatory. Soon Meliodas will be done with his incubations, but we are still unsure what kind of person he will be like when he comes out. Ban will be joining in the fight as well; now, he is with Meliodas in Purgatory, looking for a way back to the real world.
Ban coming back might mean good news for the seven deadly sins. Zeldris seems to be finished and can not fight anymore. Things are the same with Chandler and Cusack as Merlin now uses strange magic to create their weaknesses and manipulates it. Escanor is also finished as he reverted to his daytime powers. But that might be due to Cusack’s powers as it is still night time.
Everyone else is also damaged from the effects of the commandments vs. the sins fight, so not many people who can fight are left. This probably means that the anime will be moving to the next stage of the fight. Mysterious magic that the real Gowther cast many years ago has also activated. It alters everyone’s memory, and now Estarossa is appearing as the angel Mael. The puppet Gowther is also there to make sure that no one interferes, which will determine the outcome of the holy war.
The Demon King noticed that this is somebody’s doing, and he is probably aware that this could be Gowther’s doing. Everyone’s memory of Estarossa is affected, including those who are in Purgatory. It took Gowther all of his life force to cast this magic, and he also left a puppet as insurance.
Gowther’s Spell Activates
With Gowther’s magic active, the angel Mael resurrected within Estarossa. Estarossa grew wings and will likely be joining the seven deadly sins side. But it is not yet clear how this spell will work. But it has turned the tide of the war in favor of the angels. The net episode will reveal more details on this end about what is happening to Estarossa. We might also get to understand more about what Gowther did and how his spell works. Even Merlin, who is adept in magic, is wondering what could be happening.
But the spell affected everyone’s memory, so next, we will get more updates on the demon lord’s side as he had noticed that people’s memories were altered. More updates next week when a new episode comes out. For more updates and news on the anime episodes coming out for this week, you can check out our anime news weekly updates.
