The Seven Deadly Sins Manga to Bundle Original Anime DVD
posted on by Egan Loo
Suzuki launched the original manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha published 33rd volume on August 17. Kodansha Comics published the first English volume in 2014, and the 27th volume shipped on July 3. Crunchyroll is posting the new chapters as they appear in Japan.
Suzuki reported in an interview in Kadokawa's Da Vinci magazine this month that he is planning on concluding the manga in "about a year," after about 40 volumes' worth of story. He noted that he had the ending planned since the beginning of the manga and that he plans to give it an ending worthy of a shōnen magazine. In addition, he said that any plans for a sequel to the manga will depend upon Weekly Shōnen Magazine's editors. He noted that it is possible his next work may be a baseball manga.
Suzuki's manga inspired a 24-episode television anime series that aired in 2014 and 2015. Netflix later streamed the series with both English and Japanese audio, and Funimation released the series in two parts on home video. A four-episode television anime special titled The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War- then premiered in August 2016. Netflix began streaming the series in February 2017. A second season, The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments, premiered in January.
The manga also inspired the anime film Gekijōban Nanatsu no Taizai: Tenkū no Torawarebito (The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky) that opened in Japan on Saturday.
