posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kodansha Comics announced on Tuesday that it is offering an English digital release of Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse (Mokushiroku no Yon-kishi) sequel manga simultaneously with Japan, with the first five chapters already available through BookWalker, Comixology, Kindle, and Crunchyroll.
Kodansha Comics describes the manga:
In the world of The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse, Percival has always lived with his grandfather on the idyllic, remote God's Finger. And though Percival loves the simple life, he longs for adventure. That is, until adventure comes knocking at his door, tearing away everything he's ever known and leaving him alone in the world. Now Percival has no choice but to go out into the world and see what it holds...after all, it's his destiny!
Kodansha USA Publishing confirmed a sequel in March 2020 with the tentative title Mokushiroku no Yon-kishi (The Four Knights of the Apocalypse). Suzuki stated in February that side stories based on the "remaining characters" will come out "someday." However, he added that this will be after he "begins serializing a new work," confirming that he is working on a new series.
