posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the television anime of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) manga began streaming a new 30-second TV commercial for the series on Sunday. The video features the anime's opening theme "Netsujō no Spectrum" (Spectrum of Passion) by Ikimono-gakari (Naruto Shippuden, Bleach).
Elizabeth: That symbol is... A beast- No, a dragon...!
Text: The curtain on the royal road sins fantasy rises!
Elizabeth: I'm searching... For the Seven Deadly Sins.
Hawk: I'm a super villain, you know?
Man: It's decided. Princess Elizabeth!
Elizabeth: The ones really harming the people are the Holy Knights!
Meliodas: Do you know who I am now? Sin of Wrath. Dragon Sin. Meliodas!
Narrator: The Seven Deadly Sins
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?
The television anime will premiere on October 5.
Suzuki launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha Comics published the fourth English volume earlier this month. Crunchyroll is posting the new chapters as they appear in Japan.
