The official website for sin Nanatsu no Taizai, the television anime adaptation of Hobby Japan's multimedia project The 7 Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai, not to be confused with the similarly named manga by Nakaba Suzuki), revealed two more cast members on Friday.

Kinji Yoshimoto (Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin, Plastic Little) is directing the anime at TNK and Artland, and he is also credited for story concept, series composition, and color design. (Eri Umemoto is credited for color design alongside Yoshimoto.) Masashi Suzuki (The Sacred Blacksmith, Rail Wars, Queen's Blade: Grimoire) is the main writer.

Niθ (Blassreiter, Samurai Girls) drew the project's original character designs, and Sachiko Yasuda (Prison School, To Love Ru: Darkness animation director) is adapting the character designs for animation. Yasuda is also credited as chief animation director, alongside Masaru Koseki (Happiness!, Demon King Daimao) and Junji Goto (School Days, High School DxD, Daimidaler).

Hobby Japan first announced the project in 2012 with a planned two-episode anime that had a different staff. Orchid Seed produced figures for the project.

Hobby Japan's Comic Fire website is publishing a manga adaptation by Ururihi.
