Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) (2014) s03e08 Episode Script

The Druids' Holy Land

1 What's wrong? Meliodas is the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins.
The Seven Deadly Sins? Her memories erased by Gowther, Diane suddenly vanishes.
Lost World.
I erased her memories.
Captain, I'm sorry, but I'm going after Diane even if I'm on my-- Don't just stand there, King! We're going after Diane right now! Okay! Meliodas and the others leave the royal capital Camelot in order to find her.
They're heading for the Giant race's homeland, Megadoza.
We're counting on you, Mom! Wait for us, Diane.
We'll find you no matter what.
Still, 300 miles is a lot of ground to cover.
I mean, thank goodness we're moving fast, but Hey, Merlin, is there any way you could use Teleportation? I'm really worried about Diane.
Right now, it's all I can do to keep my soul contained in Aldan.
I'm sorry, King.
All right.
Not only that, I'd like to keep a reserve of my magical power for emergencies.
For emergencies? In the direction Diane is heading, from the ruins of Edinburgh Castle along the way I'm picking up waves of monstrous evil.
This is a tale of ancient times, when the human and non-human worlds had not yet split.
The 3,000-year-old seal has been broken.
The Demon race's elite troops, the Ten Commandments, now awakened, are about to bury Britannia in blood and fear.
Rising up to counter this threat is a group of great sinners, a legendary order of knights.
They are called the Seven Deadly Sins.
EPISODE EIGHT: THE DRUIDS' HOLY LAND You say you slew Meliodas? I did indeed.
I also disposed of the other pesky gnats, but what a disappointment! To think that the heretic who once struck terror into the heart of the Demon race would meet such an end! Is that true, Galand? I find it hard to believe you could bring him down so easily.
Are you doubting me? Meaning you don't believe the words of Galand of Truth? No, I'm well aware of your powers, but Are you going somewhere again? Just a walk! It's not in me to sit still.
I have to tell everyone in the homeland right away.
That Matrona protected me.
And di-- What's that? I've never seen anything so strange.
A mysterious rocky mountain? Or maybe Why are you alive, Giant girl? What is this? It's like there are goose bumps all over my body.
Who's behind me? No, I can't turn around.
I'm sure I delivered the final blow.
Don't think! Just run as fast as you can! It's a member of the Giant race.
A huge soul like yours will help to restore my magical powers.
Monspiet! I see you have a keen nose as well! The one Human soul I ate just made me even hungrier.
I'd be willing to bet that you're here at Derieri's request.
You're such a meddler, aren't you! She has nothing to do with this.
I'm here because of my own hunger pangs.
What? Who are these two? They look Human, but inside they're something else entirely! Not the Fairy or Giant races, either! Don't tell me Don't tell me! By the way, Giant girl.
You still haven't answered my question.
Why are you still alive? Don't come near me! I've never seen you-- It's no use lying to me! You saw it, didn't you? How that annoying mage told a lie in my presence and turned to stone! What are you talking about? I have no idea who you are! You just told a lie! Stay away from me! You're not turning to stone.
Do you not remember anything? Maybe I did fail to finish you off? Meliodas, I'm so scared! Save me! Well, whatever.
In any case, be sure to die this time! All right, I'm going to help myself to your soul now.
What's this? Breaking Wave! No way! That magical power is Did you do something so foolish knowing we're the Ten Commandments? Prison Grip! Hawk's Mom! Stop for a second! Don't slam on the brakes with no warning! What's going on, Captain? Let's get going-- What's this? These three powerful auras It's the Ten Commandments and I don't know who else.
But they're clashing right now.
On the Ten Commandments' side, there's Monspiet and Galand.
The other one has a magical power I haven't encountered before.
No way! Is that you, Matrona? Thank goodness! I was so sure that you'd-- Why? For the first time in forever, I'm getting fired up despite my age! I have to admit, it's pretty amazing that you caught me off guard! Huh? They're nowhere to be seen.
Teleportation? It can't be.
A member of the Giant race with such an advanced magical power? I've never heard of such a thing.
Could she have turned into a bird, and flown off into the skies? Cruel Slash Barrage! Interrupting my meal This is why I detest people with no manners.
Elder Sister! Could this overpowering murderous intent be Yes.
It looks like they've detected our presence as well.
Seriously? But they're hundreds of miles away, right? Just how keen is their sense of smell? I-I don't think they detected us by smell.
Of all things, to be noticed by him Multiple powerful presences concentrated in one place, like a birdcage.
Not only that, but one of them is similar to Meliodas.
Hellfire Bird.
Let's see.
Why don't I give it a shot? Subdue it, no matter what! F-Fire! A mass of devastating magical power is heading towards us at blinding speed! What? ETA, ten seconds.
Hawk's Mom! Change direction and run as fast as you can! The magical power just changed trajectory! It's pursuing us! Something's coming! That magical power attack is to see if it's really me who's here.
If I use Full Counter, it will betray both the fact that I'm alive and my exact location, but I have no choice but to do it! Mom? He said not to go that way! Mom! Mom! -Help! I'm so scared! -Hey, Hawk! Never mind that, get off me! The Hellfire Bird's signal vanished.
This has to be Meliodas' Counter Vanish.
No, that's not it.
It didn't vanish so much as it seemed to get swallowed by something.
Dear me.
I just wasted the smidgen of magical power I regained from eating that Human soul.
No sign of them surfacing.
And I'm sure I met some resistance.
Did they perish? Oh man, I came this close to being turned into a whole roast pig there! But seriously, you're unbelievable, Hawk's Mom! To swallow that intense magical power in a single gulp! Maybe a little too unbelievable, don't you think? Hawk's Mom, your stomach's not upset, is it? Captain.
I would advise a change of direction.
Hold on, Merlin! That's not what I agreed to! If you don't want to look for Diane, I'm going off on my own! I understand how you feel, but calm down, King.
Diane's presence has faded, along with whoever was facing the Ten Commandments.
And right before we were attacked, too.
Most likely, they're both safe.
But if we were to recklessly approach them now, we would put Diane in danger.
We're definitely going to rescue Diane! All of us together, okay? Captain Anyway, Merlin, a change of direction means you have somewhere else in mind, right? Right now, our top priority is to power up so we can fight the Ten Commandments.
And to start We'll have a meal, right? I'm going to give you back the power I stole from you, Captain.
Elder Sister stole it? Sir Meliodas' power? What do you mean? I did so because the captain's power was too overwhelming and dangerous.
That's why the captain had to constantly keep his emotions in check so his powers wouldn't run rampant.
Is that like me always exerting myself whenever I transform like this? But on a whole different level! But it's not like he hasn't gone berserk more than once before, right? Those times? In terms of his true power, what you saw was merely the dregs.
Merely the dregs, she said! Well, excuse me.
Ten years ago, in the midst of the drama surrounding our exile, when a certain young girl was seriously injured trying to help us, the captain started to lose control.
The moment he let down his guard, I separated his strength from him.
I can't believe something like that happened.
Oh, I completely forgot about that.
We're going to need that power to battle the Ten Commandments.
So, where is it now? The location isn't that far from here.
The Holy Land of the Druids, the sages of the forest Istar.
So this is Istar, the Druids' Holy Land, right? Yep.
I think it's been about ten years or so since I was last here.
Sir Meliodas, are you familiar with the Druids? A little, because of one of the Seven Deadly Sins' missions.
Still, there's nothing but stones as far as the eye can see, and there doesn't seem to be anyone around, does there? What a splendid stone pillar! -It sure is! -Hey! Did the Druids build of all these, too? Sir Meliodas! What is this? What do you know, the entrance was already open? What are you talk-- Whoa! This is amazing! How exactly does this work? It's a type of gate that leads to this place.
However, to pass through it, you need the spell caster's permission.
By that logic, Elder Sister, if the gate's open, then Somebody's there? That's correct! We were aware of your arrival.
Who's that? The Druid chiefs.
It's been a while, Seven Deadly Sins! You sure are humongous, Chief! I'm Hawk! The star and master of the Seven Deadly Sins! I'm the captain of the Order of Scraps Disposal! I'm the chief! Lady Jenna and my younger sister, Zaneri! Y-You mean these two youngsters are the Druid chiefs? Then who's this old guy? I'm the priest in charge of protecting our chiefs.
My name is Theo! How old are you, anyway? Yo, Theo! You really bulked up, huh? Yes, Sir Meliodas.
I'm 15 now, after all! You fraud! This pig is so amusing! You do you know who I am? It's very nice to meet you.
I'm the Kingdom of Liones' third princess-- Yo, Zaneri! We're still a couple of shorties, aren't we? Meliodas.
I'm happy to see you again.
Okay, that's enough greetings.
The reason we came here today-- We know your purpose for coming to the Holy Land.
That makes things easier.
I'd expect no less of the Druid chief.
I appreciate it.
By the way, Merlin.
Are the people just standing over there your comrades? Yes.
Arthur, aren't you going? What about you, Sir Gowther? Shouldn't you go? Right now, I'm in the process of reading the room.
Now then, Meliodas, let's go to the tower on the right.
Okay! And you, as well.
Me? Everything's moving so quickly, I can't keep up.
To think that they not only knew we were coming, but our purpose, as well.
The Druids are known to use mysterious spells.
And on top of that, they have their own way of thinking.
Could it be that Lady Zaneri has feelings for Sir Meliodas? Elizabeth! Are you all right? Y-Yes! It's pitch dark! My power is inside this place? Yes.
You'll go through a trial now, Meliodas.
Whether we return your power will depend on the result.
Oh? In short, I just have to complete this trial, right? It will be very painful and difficult for you.
I'm very worried about whether or not you can take it.
If she's going so far as to tell Sir Meliodas that What could it be? When you say that, it motivates me even more! I'll gladly face any sort of trial! Where am I? Whoops.
Sorry about that, kid.
How rude of me, Captain of the Order of the Holy Knights! Huh? This outfit No way! That crest! Is this Danafall? Is it? Hey, I've been looking for you, Meliodas! It can't be! That voice Liz.
