Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh anime unveiled a “memorial visual” along with messages from the cast members in English on Monday: Yuki Kaji (Meliodas), Sora Amamiya (Elizabeth), Aoi Yuki (Diane), Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Ban), Jun Fukuyama (King), Yuhei Takagi (Gowther), Maaya Sakamoto (Merlin), and Tomokazu Sugita (Escanor). The first part of the film adaptation began streaming on December 20 on Netflix. The second part is slated for August 2023.
Yuki Kaji (Meliodas):
Elizabeth, whom Meliodas risked everything to protect. Tristan, the hero of this story, is the product of their love. Just watching his struggle will surely be inspiring. Coincidentally, I recently became a father myself, so I felt deeply connected to Meliodas, who has also become a father. Please join us and experience this new saga in the history of The Seven Deadly Sins!
Sora Amamiya (Elizabeth):
I was so moved seeing Tristan, who looks just like his parents, mature and grow! And as if that weren’t enough, his growth is shown through intense, explosively-animated action scenes! What a rush. Please look out for my scenes as mother Elizabeth, too!
Aoi Yuki (Diane):
Many series leave the future to the audience’s imagination, but I’m glad we were able to see the future our characters helped protect. I hope you enjoy this new generation of The Seven Deadly Sins with the same excitement as the original!
Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Ban):
The experience of watching this film was like seeing the wide world of The Seven Deadly Sins expand even further in a totally fresh way. What happened during that gap? I hope you enjoy seeing the gang in a new way, which you’ll only get here. That said, I can’t wait for Part 2!
Jun Fukuyama (King):
Our Seven Deadly Sins once came to an end and is now beginning again. While waiting for the script, I couldn’t wait to see what kind of new story, visuals and characters would appear. With its brand-new story and all new challenges, it made me happy as a member of the original cast. As the focus shifts to the next generation, I hope everyone watching Grudge of Edinburgh will enjoy The Seven Deadly Sins all over again.
Yuhei Takagi (Gowther):
The beauty of the royal fantasy world and the powerful battle scenes, made possible thanks to the 3D animation, were breathtaking! I personally loved the scene where Gowther teaches Tristan to ride a horse. I wondered if there was a connection to when Gowther rode that horse with Nadja, and felt both sad and happy.
Maaya Sakamoto (Merlin):
I don’t appear this time, but I’m so happy the story of The Seven Deadly Sins isn’t over! I’ll be watching them on their quest. Please watch along with me!
Tomokazu Sugita (Escanor):
Seeing my old friends in this new form moved me deeply. Words are important, but perhaps the way we choose to live conveys an even deeper message. Oh, sun in the sky, please gently shine upon them…

The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Unveils Main Visual Ahead of Premiere
The plot of the movie is described as:
14 years since the Kingdom of Liones defeated the Demon Clan and brought peace to the land, Prince Tristan is tormented by his inability to control two great powers: the Demon Clan power of his father, Meliodas, who served as captain of the Seven Deadly Sins as the Dragon Sin of Wrath, and the Goddess Clan power of his mother, Elizabeth. When Elizabeth’s life is threatened, Tristan flees the kingdom and heads toward Edinburgh, where Deathpierce — who was once a member of a group of the kingdom’s Holy Knights, the Pleiades of the Azure Sky — maintains his castle. But what are Deathpierce’s intentions? The wheel of fate begins to move and sweeps up even The Seven Deadly Sins…
Seven Deadly Sins was originally a manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine.

The series’ sequel, Four Knights of the Apocalypse is receiving an anime adaptation.
