Finished series: Nanatsu no Taizai

We've finished watching Nanatsu no Taizai.

It's a high-powered fantasy romp: princess Elizabeth flees from the castle when the Holy Knights (basically knights with magical super-powers) take her family prisoner. She searches for the Seven Deadly Sins: a group of seven Holy Knights who are even more powerful than the other Holy Knights, but who have gone in hiding because they are wanted men and women. And wouldn't you know it: she stumbles across the inn of Meliodas, the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins squad!
From there, they assemble most of the original crew, and they take the fight to the corrupt Holy Knights!

"High-powered" does not even begin to describe it: in the first episode, an apprentice Holy Knight cuts the top off a hill! Then every episode, there seems to be an even more powerful attack, that the Seven Deadly Sins can parry or counter... By the end of the series (which lasted two seasons), the power level has escalated to ridiculous levels. The possibility of a second season is left open, but I think that will escalate to even more ludicrous levels...
