The first main trailer has been released for The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights Of The Apocalypse anime, which is premiering in Japan on October 8. Little Glee Monster‘s opening theme “UP TO ME!” is previewed in it.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights Of The Apocalypse is based on the Kodansha-published manga by Nakaba Suzuki, which is a sequel to Suzuki’s The Seven Deadly Sins (which has itself inspired a multi-season anime series as well as anime movies). The anime will run for two consecutive cours. 

Kodansha USA describes the plot 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.

Maki Kodaira (Pokémon Journeys: The Series [up till Episode 54]) is directing the adaptation at Telecom Animation Film with Shigeru Murakoshi (Management of a Novice Alchemist) as series composer, Yoichi Takada (Blue Thermal chief animation director) as character designer, and KOHTA YAMAMOTO (Attack on Titan Final Season co-composer) as music composer.

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.
