The official website for the television anime of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) manga began streaming a trailer on Sunday. The video features FLOW and GRANRODEO's ending theme song "7-seven-" and Ikimono-gakari's opening theme "Netsujō no Spectrum" (Spectrum of Passion).
Man: They were slaughtered... And in a single instant. Only by seven people...
Elizabeth: The kingdom's most evil knight brigade, with each soldier having the symbol of an animal engraved on their skin.
Gilthunder: So they truly were alive...
Elizabeth: If there is a single hope to stopping the Holy Knights, it's the Seven Deadly Sins!
Text: The destiny of the kingdom
Text: Was thrown into chaos by them.
Soldier: That... Legendary...!
Meliodas: Sin of Wrath. Dragon Sin. Meliodas!
Diane: I'm the Serpent Sin, Diane! I'll lend you my power!
Elizabeth: This is the power of the Seven Sins...!
Gilthunder: The trecherous knight brigade... The Seven Deadly Sins...
Text: The justice of sin will be tested.
Meliodas: I have things that I must do.
Narrator: Nanatsu no Taizai.
The "Chijōha Hatsu Kōkai Shingeki no Kyojin Tokubetsu-hen & Nanatsu no Taizai Saishin Tokuhō" television program also unveiled Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) and Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins) crossover art on Sunday. The image inserts The Seven Deadly Sins characters into a key visual for the Attack on Titan anime. Instead of the Colossal Titan, Diane peers over the wall. Meliodas and Hawk take Eren's place in front of the wall. The collaboration developed because Kodansha's Shōnen Magazine serializes both manga, and Yuuki Kaji voices the main characters in both anime adaptations.
A 7.4-meter (about 24-foot) tall version of the image will hang near the east entrance of Shinjuku Station from October 3 to 6. Diane will appear almost life-size in the display. The crossover art will also appear in the November issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine on October 9. The issue will include comments from Attack on Titan manga creator Hajime Isayama and The Seven Deadly Sins manga creator Nakaba Suzuki.
Kodansha Comics, the publisher of the The Seven Deadly Sins 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.
