Kodansha Comics, the publisher of the manga in North America, describes how the story begins:
When they were accused of trying to overthrow the monarchy, the feared warriors the Seven Deadly Sins were sent into exile. Princess Elizabeth discovers the truth - the Sins were framed by the king's guard, the Holy Knights - too late to prevent them from assassinating her father and seizing the throne!
Now the princess is on the run, seeking the Sins to help her reclaim the kingdom. But the first Sin she meets, Meliodas, is a little innkeeper with a talking pig. He doesn't even have a real sword! Have the legends of the Sins' strength been exaggerated?
Suzuki launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha Comics published the third English volume this month. Crunchyroll is posting the new chapters as they appear in Japan.
