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.
