About Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai)
Written by Nakaba Suzuki, The Seven Deadly Sins is Japanese Shounen manga published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shounen Magazine since 2012.
The Seven Deadly Sins were once an active group of knights in the region of Britannia, who disbanded after they supposedly plotted to overthrow the Liones Kingdom. Their supposed defeat came at the hands of the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that they were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights staged a coup d’état and captured the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. The third princess, Elizabeth Liones, then starts out on a journey to find the Seven Deadly Sins and enlist their help in taking back the kingdom from the Holy Knights.
The source material inspired three anime seasons consisting of 24 episodes with an original anime movie all available on Netflix.
