While it was speculated that the manga will end by New Year 2020 with the defeat of the Demon King, Suzuki chose to take a different route. Not only did the manga continue, but Nakaba Suzuki also turned the world of Seven Deadly Sins upside down.
Chapter 339 of the Nanatsu no Taizai manga ended on a major cliffhanger with Merlin supposedly betraying the rest of the group.
Chapter 341 titled Cath Palug was released recently, and just like the good ol’ days, it reunited the Nanatsu no Taizai – due to the emergence of a common enemy.
1. Chapter 342 Release Date & Speculation
The next chapter will be titled “Cry of Victory.” Judging from the pace of the manga, it will release between 16th and 18th February. It will show the battle between Meliodas & the sins vs. Cath Palug, and the outburst of Arthur.

3. Chapter 341 Cath Palug Plot
Chapter 341 was in a subtle manner, an emotional chapter that revived the bonds between Nanatsu no Taizai. It started with the rest of the sins talking about the matter of Merlin’s betrayal. While King takes a stand against her, Gowther says otherwise.
Meliodas ends the discussion by saying that in any case, Merlin has to take responsibility for her actions, and the team will help her to that!
The next panel showcases the fight between the strongest mage and the distorted monster of chaos – Cath Palug. After an array of attacks, Merlin is unable to defeat Cath, and Arthur steps in with his overwhelming new power.
Cath, however, is smarter than it looks. Instead of fighting Arthur, who is obviously much stronger, it mentions the destruction of his kingdom – Camelot. This throws Arthur into deep despair and gives Cath a chance to land a decisive blow.
Cath jumps into air and fires numerous magical blasts while Merlin tries to protect Arthur. At the last second, Meliodas uses Full Counter and saves both of them. He then tells Merlin that she has to take responsibility for her actions with the help of the rest of the sins.
4. Question Corner
Strangely enough, Chapter 341 didn’t contain Nakaba Suzuki’s famous Question – Answer corner. Well, neither did chapter 340. Looks like we won’t see the quirky questions for a while.
