'Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon's Judgement' Season 5: Will Ban, Meliodas escape Purgatory?
Season 5 of ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’ is just around the corner and fans are eagerly waiting to see what happens to Meliodas (Bryce Papenbrook). However, another character that will be in focus is none other than Ban (Ben Diskin), who is trying to find Meliodas’ feelings and get out of Purgatory.
In season 4, we saw Ban wandering in Purgatory for a long, long time and he fights a dragon. Years pass by, but the battle doesn’t stop and they keep on exchanging blows. There comes a time when they just rest and Ban lies next to the dragon and says, “Captain, let’s get together. Besides, I have to see my love.” After a few moments, we see that Meliodas is lying next to Ban. It was revealed that Meliodas’ feelings had taken a physical form and he had been turned into a dragon.
Meliodas wakes up and sees Ban, still believing it to be a hallucination, but upon realizing he is the real Ban, cries over him, thinking he was never going to see him, Elizabeth, or the others ever again. He also explains how the Demon King made sure that he never returns to his body and eventually turned into a dragon after being consumed by rage.
With Meliodas and Ban now together, will they be able to leave Purgatory and get back to the people they love?
According to the manga series, an amazing battle will take place and that’s when we'll know if they escaped that dangerous place or not.
In the manga, Meliodas and Ban defeat a naturally-born creature of Purgatory and use its remains to create weapons. They try to find the exit gate, but they are stopped by a stranger. Meliodas asks him if he knows where the exit and Demon King are, to which he agrees and says that he will only show the way if they take him with them. The stranger is named Wild and resembles Hawk. After a few moments, he tells them that Hawk is his long-lost younger brother and he wants to exit Purgatory and meet him. Later they find out that Hawk was originally born in Purgatory and he was sent to the outside world forcefully by the Demon King.
As soon as they reach closer to the exit, the Demon King gets to them and realizes that Wild helped them get here. A battle takes place and Demon King attacks Ban and Meliodas with his sword declaring that they will never return to the living world and cuts off Ban's arm.
He continues attacking with his sword while laughing mockingly at Ban and Meliodas for their efforts. They continue to battle against the Demon King for a total of 6,093 losses. It has been 60 years and they realize that the Demon King has the ability to reverse all magic directed at him. With the Demon King thinking of ending the battle once and for all, he attempts to destroy Meliodas' emotions. However, he is stopped by Wild who manages to hold the King long enough - giving them a chance to escape Purgatory.
As Meliodas and Ban fall through the portal, they start separating. Demon King manages to grab Meliodas and tries to stop him from getting to his body. However, Meliodas manages to awaken his magical power and destroy his father’s arm, and mocks him for showing signs of fear as he escapes Purgatory.
If this is how the anime adaptation is going to show how he escapes the dangerous place, then we are in for an epic final season. Meliodas is eagerly waiting to unite with Elizabeth (Erika Harlacher) and marry her. Let’s see what happens at the end.
