Nakaba Suzuki‘s The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights Of The Apocalypse manga is getting a TV anime adaptation. The announcement comes ahead of the release of the manga’s 7th volume on May 17.
An illustration, depicting the titular Four Knights of the Apocalypse staring down against The Seven Deadly Sins from the prequel manga series, and a teaser visual were released with the announcement.
The Kodansha-published Four Knights Of The Apocalypse manga began in January 2021. It is serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine and published under the Kodansha Comics label.
Kodansha describes the story as:
A BRAND-NEW ADVENTURE 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! Four Knights of the Apocalypse is a new story in the world of The Seven Deadly Sins, but can be enjoyed totally on its own! Perfect for fantasy fans the world over.
The original The Seven Deadly Sins manga ran from 2012 to 2020 and has inspired a multi-season anime series, several anime movies, manga spin-offs, light novels, and games. The upcoming two-part The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh movie will feature Tristan, the son of The Seven Deadly Sins protagonist Meliodas and one of the sequel manga’s Four Knights of the Apocalypse, as its main character.
