Convenience store chain Lawson's online shopping website HMV posted a listing for a limited edition bundle of the 16th volume of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) manga that includes an original video animation (OVA) episode. The volume is scheduled to ship in Japan in August.
The page lists that the the episode will feature all of the main characters, and that it will be an omnibus of side stories.
The first OVA revolving around Ban's past will ship with the limited edition of the 15th volume on June 17.
Kodansha Comics, the publisher of the manga in North America, describes how the manga's 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?
A television anime adaptation of the manga premiered in Japan last October, and ended with 24 episodes.
