Seven Deadly Sins' Nakaba Suzuki Draws 1-Shot for Manga One App
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
A new one-shot by The Seven Deadly Sins manga creator Nakaba Suzuki will launch within Shogakukan's "Manga ONE" app at midnight JST (11:00 a.m. EDT) on Friday. The new one-shot is titled "About That Transfer Student X" ("Sono Tenkōsei X Nitsuki"), and takes place in the year 20XX, when the institution of the classroom has broken down. A teacher named Mishuku is struggling to teach his class. One day, a mysterious and beautiful young woman named Kiruko Otonashi transfers into the class. The manga is Suzuki's first completely new work in 10 years.
Suzuki launched The Seven Deadly Sins manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2012, and ended the series in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine on March 25. Kodansha published the manga's 41st and final volume on May 15. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English digitally and in print. Crunchyroll posted new chapters as they appeared in Japan.
The manga's first 24-episode television anime series aired in 2014 and 2015. Netflix later streamed the series with both English and Japanese audio, and Funimation released the series in two parts on home video. A four-episode television anime special titled The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War- then premiered in August 2016. Netflix began streaming the series in February 2017. The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments, the second television anime series, premiered in January 2018, and Netflix began streaming the series in October 2018.
The manga also inspired the anime film The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky that opened in Japan in August 2018. The Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath of the Gods (Nanatsu no Taizai: Kamigami no Gekirin), the latest television anime series by Studio DEEN, premiered in October 2019, and ended on March 25.
Nanatsu no Taizai: Fundo no Shinpan (The Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon's Judgement), the franchise's new television anime series, is delayed from its previously slated October premiere date due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), and will now premiere in January 2021.
