Hm, okay. I think my opinion may have been unduly colored by my memory of the original AMG anime, where punishments for gods were pretty severe. I was thinking the act of breaking the seal was in and of itself a serious crime, which could easily be compounded by what was done while the god was unsealed.

Makes sense, and thanks for the clarification.
