The project is connected to Hobby Japan's Seven Mortal Sins (sin Nanatsu no Taizai) multimedia franchise.

In the show's story, the "Seven Mortal Sins," demons from hell, have pressed forward and have started to spread their plague. Heaven is in chaos, and the angels of the "Seven Heavenly Virtues" are sent to Earth to search for a candidate to become the "true messiah."

Shinji Ishihira (Fairy Tail, Log Horizon, Heybot!) is directing the anime at the studio Bridge. Niθ is credited with the original character designs, and Masanori Iizuka (animation director for Dog Days, Fairy Tail) is the character designer, prop designer, and chief animation director.
