Seven Deadly Sins Production Manga Reaches 'Climax' in October

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Comedy spinoff of The Seven Deadly Sins manga launched in November 2015

The November issue of Kodansha's ARIA magazine revealed on Thursday that Chiemi Sakamoto's Nanatsu no Taizai Production (The Seven Deadly Sins Production) comedy spinoff manga is entering its "climax" in the magazine's next issue on October 28. The word "climax" written in phonetic katakana often refers to the final chapter of a series.

Nanatsu no Taizai Production is a spinoff of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) manga.

The manga imagines what would happen if the setting of The Seven Deadly Sins was instead a live-action TV drama production. In the manga, Meliodas is an actor who plays the role of a child genius. The manga shows the bad habits of the actors during filming and their everyday lives.

The manga launched in ARIA in November 2015. Kodansha published the manga's third compiled book volume on June 16.

Suzuki launched the original manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha published the 27th compiled book volume on July 14. Kodansha will publish the 28th volume on October 17. Kodansha Comics published the first English volume in 2014, and the 22nd volume shipped on September 19. Crunchyroll is posting the new chapters as they appear in Japan.

Suzuki drew two spinoff manga for The Seven Deadly Sins in February 2015. Jūichi Tamaki's Mayoe! Nanatsu no Taizai Gakuen! comedy spinoff manga began in 2014 and ended last November, while the Nanatsu no Taizai: King no Mangamichi spinoff ran from 2016 to 2017. The series also had a crossover chapter with Fairy Tail in 2013.

Yō Kokikuji's recently ended Nanatsu no Taizai: Seven Days ~Tōzoku to Seishōjo~, the manga adaptation of Mamoru Iwasa's spinoff novel, in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge on September 16.

The original manga inspired a 24-episode television anime, a four-episode television anime special, and two OVAs bundled with volumes of the manga. A new season is slated for January 2018 and an anime film is slated for summer 2018.
