“The Seven Deadly Sins” is a very popular Shounen anime that ended in its fifth season in 2021. While the final season was not well received due to its lackluster animation, the series itself is still considered very successful. So much so that the sequel manga “Four Knights of the Apocalypse” is still going.

What is ‘The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse’ about?
The sequel manga takes place years after the original anime. The land is now ruled by the all-powerful Arthur who we saw back in the original’s climax. In a remote corner of this world, Percival is living an easy life with his grandfather. Although he longs for adventure, he loves his grandpa more and does not want to leave him.
But one day a mysterious Knight shows up and attacks the pair out of nowhere. This event changes Percival’s fate forever and thrusts him into a destiny which might see the end of the world. Although all this sounds super exciting, we still don’t have a release date for the anime. So maybe you should check out the original anime available on Netflix right now.
