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.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
