How to watch The Seven Deadly Sins? Complete Watch Order Guide

The Seven Deadly Sins, or as they say, the cardinal sins that once committed, could wind you up in the depths of hell. But, apart from it being cast into the stones throughout the ages, let me introduce you to the fun part of it! 

As is apparent, such can also be a source of an incredible storyline, so the anime series The Seven Deadly Sins is not a strange thing in the world of anime and manga.

This is a shonen anime series with humans, fairies, demons, a King and his Knights, and, of course, a talking pig revolving around a fantastic story of mighty knights depicting the seven deadly sins.

7. Conclusion

The only watch order recommended is the chronological order. 

The special, Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu Joshou, is just the summary of Season 1. You can skip it without any regret as it doesn’t add anything to the main plotline.

Also, the four-episode special, Signs of Holy War, is vital in understanding the series, and it is not a special I would recommend you to skip on. 

It is not a Season 2, somewhat a short sequel to Season 1, and only stretches out the storyline of Season 1. 

At best, the Signs of Holy War can be considered a bridging season, and anime are full of such installments in a franchise.

The OVAs are also very important as some of the crucial plot points are clearly shown in them. 

An important question might come up regarding another season for an anime with such a dedicated fanbase. However, one thing is clear that this

anime is finished, and there won’t be any recurring manga chapters or episodes concerning the main plotline.

Still, there is a possibility. 

The manga spin-off series, The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse, has been serialized since January 2021. Thus a new season could be in the works as a sequel.

8. About The Seven Deadly Sins

 

The Seven Deadly Sins is a Japanese fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. It was serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine from October 2012 to March 2020, with the chapters collected into forty-one tankōbon volumes.

Elizabeth Liones, princess of Liones Kingdom, embarks upon a journey to find the most vicious criminals Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai). They are Meliodas(Dragon’ sin of Wrath), Ban (Fox’ sin of Greed), Dianne (Serpent’s sin of Envy), Merlin (Boar’s sin of Gluttony), Escanor (Lion’ sin of Pride), Gowther (Goat’s sin of Lust) and King (Grizzly’ sin of Sloth).

Ten years ago, all the sins were banished from the Kingdom after they were wrongly framed for the murder of Great Holy Knight, Zaratars. Now, the Kingdom is about to fall in the hands of the corrupt Holy Knights, and Elizabeth must find the Sins and their leader Meliodas to save the Kingdom.
