This year's 24th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is revealing on Wednesday that the Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi (The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of holy war) television anime special will premiere on August 28. The four-week special will air on MBS and TBS on Sundays at 5:00 p.m.
The announcement confirms that the Arslan Senki: Fūjin Ranbu (The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance) television anime series, which will premiere on July 3 in the same time slot, will air in full before The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of holy war premieres.
The anime's staff had announced in October that production on a new television anime series was green-lit for this year. The original announcement of the new television anime series had stated that the new series would feature the same staff, but the official website lists a different staff for the special. The staff has not specified if the announcement last October was for this four-week special.
Original manga author Nakaba Suzuki is writing a brand new story for the special.
