The Seven Deadly Sins Manga Gets New TV Anime Series
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 43rd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is revealing on Wednesday that Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins manga is inspiring a new television anime series. The issue didn't give any other information about the new anime.
The four-episode The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War- special anime series premiered on August 28 and is ending on Sunday. The special features an all-new original story, which Suzuki himself wrote.
The anime's staff had announced last September that production on a new television anime series was green-lit for this year. The original announcement had stated that the new series would feature the same staff as the show's first season. When the four-episode The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War- special series was announced in March, the announcement didn't specify if the announcement last October was for the four-week special, but the staff for The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War- differed from the first television anime series.
Suzuki launched the series in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha shipped the 22nd volume on August 17. Kodansha will release the 23rd volume on October 17.
Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in print in North America, and it shipped the 16th compiled volume on September 6. Crunchyroll is releasing new chapters digitally as Kodansha publishes them in Japan. Vertical will release Shuka Matsuda's The Seven Deadly Sins: The Seven Scars Left Behind (Shōsetsu Nanatsu no Taizai -Gaiden- Karera ga Nokoshita Nanatsu no Kizuato) novel in English in May 2017.
