Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins (Japanese: 七つの大罪 Hepburn: Nanatsu no Taizai) is a Japanese fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. It has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine since October 2012, with the chapters collected into thirty-nine tankōbon volumes as of September 17, 2019. The manga features a setting similar to the European Middle Ages, with its titular group of knights representing the seven deadly sins.

The “Seven Deadly Sins”, a group of evil knights who conspired to overthrow the kingdom of Britannia, were said to have been eradicated by the Holy Knights, although some claim that they still live. Ten years later, the Holy Knights have staged a Coup d’état and assassinated the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth, the king’s daughter, sets out on a journey to find the “Seven Deadly Sins”, and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.
