The Seven Deadly Sins / Nanatsu no Taizai / 七つの大罪
“The Seven Deadly Sins” is a shounen action/fantasy manga that seems like it would be about as generic of a story as you could imagine something in this genre being. But only at first. It certainly clears that up quickly by introducing a world and a complex cast of characters that are anything but generic.
The Seven Deadly Sins were once an active group of knights in the region of Britannia, who disbanded after they supposedly plotted to overthrow the Liones Kingdom. Their supposed defeat came at the hands of the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that they were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights staged a coup d’etat and capture the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. The third princess, Elizabeth, then starts on a journey to find the Seven Deadly Sins, and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.

Beginning with a meeting between a princess and a man with a childlike stature acting as a barkeeper, the manga begins with the duo deciding to find a powerful group of warriors known as “The Seven Deadly Sins” in order to defeat the evil that has overcome the kingdom’s monarchy. What is soon revealed is that the barkeeper is no ordinary person, but actually the leader of the Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas, the Sin of Wrath. He is a legendary (and might I add, incredibly overpowered) warrior who the Holy Knights of the kingdom of Britannia (yes, it’s not a creative name) has claimed was responsible for the death of the Great Holy Knight. Holy Knights are basically the strongest protectors of a nation, and the Great Holy Knight is the strongest out of all of them. The Seven Deadly Sins were originally allied with the Holy Knights, but ten years ago, everything changed and the members split up as they fled from the Holy Knights. Now Meliodas and the princess named Elizabeth begin their search for the other Seven Deadly Sins. The characters, the world, the art, the mysteries. It’s all excellently executed. Despite the beginning being a little slow, Elizabeth’s uselessness, and some other issues here and there, this is one of the best shounen action stories I’ve seen in a while. (Thanks to Asfaria)
