posted on by Emma Hanashiro
The Japanese branch of Amazon is listing nine Blu-ray Disc/DVD volumes, with three episodes each in volumes 1-6 and two episodes each in volumes 7-9, for The Seven Deadly Sins anime. The monthly volumes will ship between January 28, 2015 and September 23, 2015.
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.
