Hey! Are you a Nanatsu Taizai Fan? I think if you’re reading then you actually love or at least have watched it. Below are our top 10 animes like Nanatsu no Taizai.
Nanatsu no Taizai : Summary
In a world that is similar to Europe’s Middle Ages, the Holy Knights are revered and feared. They use their powerful magic to protect Britannia and its Kingdoms. A small number of Knights, however, attempted to overthrow the Liones ruler by turning their swords against their fellow Knights. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.
Based on the popular manga series, Nanatsu no Taizai tells the story of Elizabeth, the third Princess of the Kingdom Of Liones. She is also searching for the Seven Deadly Sins. Their support allows her to take back her kingdom and seek justice in an unjust society.

10. One Punch Man
Saitama, a seemingly unimpressive and ordinary man, has a unique hobby: Being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, he trained relentlessly for three years—and lost all of his hair in the process. Saitama has become a powerful warrior, and no enemy can defeat him in battle. In fact, all it takes to defeat evildoers with just one punch has led to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.
This all changes with the arrival of Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg, who wishes to be Saitama’s disciple after seeing what he is capable of. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero a**ociation in order to become certified heroes that will be recognized for their positive contributions to society, and Saitama, shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. And thus begins the story of One Punch Man, an action-comedy that follows an eccentric individual who longs to fight strong enemies that can hopefully give him the excitement he once felt and just maybe, he’ll become popular in the process.

9. Akame ga Kill!
While the outside may appear peaceful, it might not reflect the inner world.
Tatsumi, who is a soldier and sets out to find a good-paying job at the capital, realizes that it is the true threat to everything he has protected his entire life. He discovers the peaceful façade of the world was merely a fake mask that hid the cruelty and atrocity inside.
And so, in a certain fateful encounter, he stumbles upon the a**assin group Night Raid, whose goal is to vanquish the evil inside the capital. Witnessing his luck in evading death and showing an important quality of a**assins in him, Night Raid recruits Tatsumi and proceeds with the mission they all want to fulfill as soon as possible. It’s to end the atrocities and bring peace back to the world.
If we have the Seven Deadly Sins in Nanatsu no Taizai, then we have Night Raid in Akame ga Kill! Both main characters are portrayed as villains when they are actually the ones keeping the world in balance and peace. Both of these anime suggest that the true threat lies in the one we believe to be the most trustworthy. There’s no such thing as absolute good or absolute evil, there’s always more than one side to everything. The Holy Knights of Nanatsu no Taizai and the Capital Government of Akame ga Kill are supposed to be the ones enforcing the law and safekeeping the peace, but it turns out they’re actually the root and source of all problems.

7. Hunter X Hunter
Gon Freecs is an 11-year-old boy whose ultimate goal it to find his father, who is an elite hunter. Hunters are a high-ranking class of people who have access to privileges not afforded to ordinary people. But getting into the trade is a ginormous hurdle since it considerably risks one’s life through a really difficult test known as the Hunter Exam.
Having this in mind, Gon gives the test a shot because he believes that it’s the only way to start his search for his father. Along with an a**assin kid named Killua, a young man who aspires to be a doctor named Leorio, and a member of the tragic Kuruta clan named Kurapika, Gon takes the near-impossible Hunter Exam to jumpstart his grand adventure in a world full of mystery and danger.
If it’s adventure that you seek, then you’ll find Hunter X Hunter in the same league (and perhaps above) as Nanatsu no Taizai. Both characters explore dangerous worlds shrouded by mystery and uncertainty. Both are enjoyable and entertaining, while also featuring climactic action scenes full of glamour and anticipation. For every step you take in the story of both anime, you’ll find yourself getting so absorbed that you just won’t be able to stop watching and ask for more.

5. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
“In order for something to be obtained, something of equal value must be lost.”
Alchemy is bound by this Law of Equivalent Exchange—something the young brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric only realize after attempting human transmutation: the one forbidden act of alchemy. They pay a terrible price for their transgression—Edward loses his left leg, Alphonse his physical body. It is only by the desperate sacrifice of Edward’s right arm that he is able to affix Alphonse’s soul to a suit of armor. Devastated and alone, it is the hope that they would both eventually return to their original bodies that gives Edward the inspiration to obtain metal limbs called “automail” and become a state alchemist, the Fullmetal Alchemist.
Three years of searching later, the brothers seek the Philosopher’s Stone, a mythical relic that allows an alchemist to overcome the Law of Equivalent Exchange. Even with military allies Colonel Roy Mustang, Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye, and Lieutenant Colonel Maes Hughes on their side, the brothers find themselves caught up in a nationwide conspiracy that leads them not only to the true nature of the elusive Philosopher’s Stone, but their country’s murky history as well. In between finding a serial killer and racing against time, Edward and Alphonse must ask themselves if what they are doing will make them human again… or take away their humanity.

Nanatsu no Taizai has princess Elizabeth seeking the Seven Deadly Sins in order to reclaim the kingdom from the corrupt Holy Knights. In Akatsuki no Yona, it’s princess Yona who’s looking for allies to reclaim her kingdom that was stolen by her most-trusted childhood friend, Soo-won. It’s the same premise—two princesses driven away by their respective kingdoms by traitors are in search of allies who will help them to step up and fight for the kingdom they really treasure.

3. Groove Adventure Rave
The island, also known as Garage Island is a peaceful place where citizens can live without being aware of the chaos that’s happening around the globe. Haru Glory is a Japanese boy who lives there with a sister. They live in peace & tranquility.
Haru comes across a strange creature in an ocean and decides that he will keep it as his pet. This strange animal is Plue, the bearer of Rave’s holy bring and the only one who can track its scattered parts. Haru doesn’t know this until an old man comes to rescue Plue. They continue their fight against evil. Haru and this old gentleman become close friends and make new connections. Then, a Demon Card bad guy shows up to take over the rave and end the old man’s reign. He was actually the Rave Master. He had been searching for Plue 50+ years.
He attempts to fight but is too old. The Rave also doesn’t respond to him anymore, much his surprise. Haru tells him to take the Rave. Haru wins in a desperate battle and the Rave replies. He defeats the bad guy with the power of Rave. It is evident that he is the new Rave master. His groove-filled adventure commences with the destruction of Dark Bring and Demon Card before he finally restores peace to the globe.
Rave Master recreates a scene similar to Nanatsu no Taizai where chaos and anarchy rule the world. Both anime share a great adventure filled with seriousness but also some humor and fun. One of the most striking similarities is that both anime are true to their action-adventure themes, but add a lot more drama, comedy and romance.
