I think it's the colour scheme of your first pic. It reminded me of Sucker Punch. LOL.

@Cyong74 LoL. And here I thought Nanatsu no Taizai looked more western.
Yong Kuan Leong from Singapore on October 20, 2016:
Hmm. Going to try Fairy Tail first, then maybe 7 sins. The artwork for Fairy Tail looks unusual. More western than anime.
