The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights Of The Apocalypse is based on Nakaba Suzuki‘s sequel to his The Seven Deadly Sins manga. The Kodansha-published title began serialization in Weekly Shonen Magazine in January 2021 and has 10 tankoubon volumes published under the Weekly Shonen Magazine label as of January 17, 2023.
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 first half of the two-part The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh movie is currently streaming on Netflix, with the second half set for an August 2023 release.
