For all those Seven Deadly Sins fans, I have some good news for you. Nakaba Suzuki has announced a direct sequel titled “Mokushiroku no Yon-Kishi.” Ever since the Seven Deadly Sins Manga came to a conclusion and the announcement for the Anime Series’s final season, many fans have been bummed out. Despite getting some bad rep for its anime and manga, the series is still loved by its fans, and seeing it end is definitely sad.
There are still many questions and character backgrounds that haven’t been explored, and the author has confirmed that once his new work is completed, he will definitely finish that part of Seven Deadly Sins. In this article, we’ll look at the new series, Mokushiroku no Yon-Kishi, by Nakaba Suzuki, and all the information we have on it.
Mokushiroku no Yon-Kishi: What Do We Know About It?
Mokushiroku no Yon-Kishi, which can also be read as “The Four Knights Of The Apocalypse” is said to be a direct sequel to the Seven Deadly Sins series. This means that the story is set in the same universe as Meliodas and the gang’s rest. Personally, it feels like the author is using the new characters to explore the world that he created through the Seven Deadly Sins.
The exciting part is that we have a confirmed date as to when the manga series will debut, along with what it’s going to be about. The author had already hinted at a sequel during the last few chapters of Seven Deadly Sins. The story will be set in Britannia and will begin in a place called the God’s Finger, which seems like an interesting name for a place to start off a series.
This new manga series will launch in the ninth volume of Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump Magazine 2021. The set date as of now is the 27th of January 2021, and the team has shared a visual for the upcoming manga; it contains the protagonist and some sort of animal companion with him. Many fans hope that the series is interesting, much like how the Seven Deadly Sins was from the get-go.
What will happen with The Characters Of Seven Deadly Sins?
Well, as of now, we don’t know if the series is set in the same time period as the current Seven Deadly Sins or in another time entirely. We know that even though the new series will contain new characters, we are still going to get the final season of The Seven Deadly Sins anime adaptation. The new series is something that’s meant as a redemption for the previous seasons’ lackluster performance. Slated to air in January of 2021 and will be handled by Studio Deen, the fans couldn’t ask for more.
One of the major reasons why Seven Deadly Sins became such a phenomenon is that Netflix decided to stream it on its services. This was when there weren’t many anime series available on Netflix, hence exposing western fans to this specific anime. For better or worse, Seven Deadly Sins became a fan favorite, resulting in 5 seasons and a new sequel.
All in all, the fact of the matter is that come January; we’ll be getting a new Seven Deadly Sins anime and a new manga sequel by Nakaba Suzuki. So mark your calendars as the next year seems quite a promising year for upcoming anime and manga series.
