The direct sequel to the The Seven Deadly Sins manga by Suzuki Nakaba, The Four Knights of the Apocalypse, has already begun. The first chapter was released on January 27, and it introduced Percival, who is one of the protagonists.
Percival, a kind boy, lives with his grandfather in a remote place called “God’s Finger”. However, the world will not allow him to live in peace. An encounter with a mysterious knight changes their fate, and a shocking secret is revealed. The boy sets out on an endless journey. Whether you know “The Seven Deadly Sins” or not, you can still enjoy it! The world’s most awaited adventure fantasy!
The manga also has a trailer (the voice of Diane, Aoi Yuuki, voices Percival in the PV):
The chapter also introduces Balgis, an ex Holy Knight who betrayed King Arthur and raised his grandson Percival on God’s Finger. One of the antagonists seems to be his son Ironside, who also made an appearance in the first chapter of the manga and mentioned the prophecy that the Four Knights of the Apocalypse will bring doom to King Arthur. That’s why he came after them, and I can’t wait to learn more about the 4 protagonists!
There will also be an original film! Its title is The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed By Light, and it’s set after the events that happened in the manga. For the anime fans, that also means after the currently airing anime season “The Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon’s Judgement”. The original creator Nakaba Suzuki is in charge of the story, and it will feature elements he “didn’t dare include in the manga”.
