The official website for the 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) began streaming the series' second promotional video on Thursday. The video previews Mia REGINA's opening theme song "My Sweet Maiden."
A flyer at the AnimeJapan 2017 event, which is being held at the Tokyo Big Sight convention center from Thursday to Sunday, revealed that the anime's official English title is "Seven Mortal Sins."
The anime's main cast will appear on the special sin Nanatsu no Taizai Jirashi Tokuban ~Shinri Test de Cast ga Maruhadaka?!~ television program on Tokyo MX on April 7 at 25:05 (effectively 1:05 a.m. on April 8). The special will also air on AT-X and BS11. Additionally, Akane Fujita, Arisa Sakuraba, and Megumi Toda will attend a special stage event at AnimeJapan on Saturday.
The anime series will premiere on AT-X on April 14 at midnight (effectively April 15), and will then air an hour later on Tokyo MX. The series will also air on BS11 starting on April 17. The website lists the anime with 12 episodes.
In the story, the prideful archangel Lucifer disobeys God and is cast into the lowest level of hell as a fallen angel. On her way to hell, Lucifer happens to meet a high school girl on Earth named Maria, who helps her. In hell, Lucifer meets Leviathan, and Leviathan explains to Lucifer about The Seven Mortal Sins, the seven demon king rulers of hell. After The Seven Mortal Sins seal Lucifer's powers, Lucifer goes on a journey with Maria and Leviathan to defeat them.
