The official website for the television anime of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins manga began streaming a second promotional video on Friday for Nanatsu no Taizai -Seisen no Shirushi- (The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War-), the four-episode television anime special.

The site's homepage also posted a special image to celebrate the character Gilthunder's birthday on Friday. The site previously streamed two ads for the anime earlier this month.
