The world of Seven Deadly Sins has known peace ever since Meliodas, Eleanor, and the others defeated the Demon King and Supreme Deity. However, we all know that the happy times won’t last long, and the next generation is itching to step up and protect the world.
Much like the infamous Sins, the next generation calls themselves the Four Knights of the Apocalypse. Most of them are children or people related to the previous series’ characters, except the protagonist Percival.
The latest trailer for Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse previews the new main character Percival and his inhuman strength.
It also confirms the anime’s 2023 premiere and reveals Shou Komura as Percival’s voice actor.
The trailer begins with manga panels from the original Seven Deadly Sins series before moving to Percival’s era. It is an entirely new story, free of the Sins and full of new heroes waiting to become our favorites.
Anyone who has watched the original series can figure out that Percival looks much like Meliodas, though their personalities are very different. I’m excited to see if Percival can break out from Meliodas’ shadow, as fans often compare the two heroes.
In addition, the franchise has also revealed that Telecom Animation Film is in charge of the show’s animation production. Meanwhile, UNLIMITED PRODUCE by TMS will look after the general planning and production.
More information on the anime’s cast and crew will be revealed by the franchise soon.
The sequel looks very different from the previous series regarding the story and characters.
Since the Sins are not wanted criminals but rather heroes now, I’m sure the Four Knights of the Apocalypse will be treated like that too. That’s why I’m curious about how exactly the story will move from there.
