The Seven Deadly Sins (七つの大罪, Nanatsu no Taizai?) is a Japanese fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. It has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine since October 2012, with the chapters collected into twenty-three tankōbon volumes as of August 17, 2016. The manga features a setting similar to the European Middle Ages, with its titular group of knights representing the seven deadly sins.
As of January 2015, The Seven Deadly Sins had sold over 10 million copies. It was adapted into a 24-episode television anime by A-1 Pictures that aired from October 2014 to March 2015. The manga has been licensed by Kodansha Comics USA for English publication in North America, while the chapters are released digitally by Crunchyroll in over 170 countries as they are published in Japan. Netflix acquired the exclusive English streaming rights for the anime series.
The Seven Deadly Sins, a group of knights who supposedly conspired to overthrow the kingdom of Britannia, were said to have been eradicated by the Holy Knights, although some claim that they still live. Ten years later, the Holy Knights have staged a coup d'état and assassinated the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth, the king's third daughter, sets out on a journey to find the Seven Deadly Sins, and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom, believing them to be the sole ones powerful enough to directly oppose the Holy Knights.
