We are at a very crucial point in the manga. The previous chapter was just too epic. Before we begin, I would like to warn you that this post is full of spoilers and if you don’t like spoilers, then it is advised that you stop reading right now. With that out of the way, let’s begin.
In the previous chapter, we saw Escanor being thrashed around by the Sinner. It is a new thing as Escanor is used to being humiliated by anyone. However, the tables have turned, and Escanor was getting a taste of his own medicine.
We saw Hendrickson being saved by Ludociel. Ludociel also refused to take his body, and he went ahead and started to fight against the Sinner, while Merlin was still trying to cast the spell in order to delay Meliodas’ birth as the Demon King. Towards the end of the chapter, we saw Escanor being carried by Mael. Escanor requested Mael to take his grace back but, Mael refused. However, Escanor was adamant and asked him to borrow for the time being.
I am now moving on to the next chapter. We will see Mael utilizing his grace in order to fight against the Sinner and Zeldris. I believe that Mael can cause a lot of trouble for them. He can easily defeat one of them but, The Sinner’s ability might cause some problem. I really want Ban to arrive as it has been a very long time since we saw Ban doing something meaningful.
Also, I don’t think that Escanor is going to die at least not yet. If Suzuki wanted to kill him, he would probably let Escanor in a fight.
