The "Seven Deadly Sins," a group of evil knights who conspired to overthrow the kingdom of Britannia, were said to have been eradicated by the Holy Knights, although some claim that they still live. Ten years later, the Holy Knights have staged a Coup d'état and captured the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth, the king's third daughter, sets out on a journey to find the "Seven Deadly Sins," and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.

"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.

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 read more

Originally aimed primarily at the young male demographic, shounen manga today is consumed around the globe by old and young, male and female alike. However, shounen has been bombarded with numerous series trying to breakout throughout the years, causing saturation. Few are able to be prominent amongst their contemporaries. Regardless, "The Seven Deadly Sins" (七つの大罪) written by Suzuki, Nakaba, is able to unify many clichés creating a unique narrative that can only be experienced firsthand.

The tale begins within a rowdy bar ran by a short-statured man, Melodias, and his talking pet swine. Wasting no time, Suzuki takes advantage of the bar's chatter and introduces read more

Nanatsu no Taizai is one of the more recent manga I’ve read, and i must say, when i first saw the trailer for the anime (which i saw before reading the manga) i was skeptical, it didn’t look too good, something about the faces i think... but after giving the anime a shot i liked it, and then i started reading the manga and i loved it.

The story:
let’s skip the mandatory plot synopsis, and jump right in. the first thing i liked about the plot was the main characters’ situation, how they are considered traitors and are constantly moving forward, it helps keep the pacing read more

Nanatsu no Taizai kicks off with the main goal being finding all the Seven Deadly Sins and having them band together to defeat the Holy Knights. It's isn't overly complicated and the story uses that to its advantage.
Nanatsu's protagonist, Melodias, is the sin of Wrath. At first, with his childlike appearance and actions, it seems oddly placed. The man runs a traveling bar that is carried on a gigantic pig, and he's generally very carefree despite being powerful. But occasionally Melodias displays characteristics nothing but deserving of his attribute of wrath, and that has been a key factor a few times. He travels with the read more

A classical adventure set up where the main characters are "the bad guys", criminals wanted by the government. Very traditional shounen, with the typical battles, special abilities and powers, and character's dreams. Very enjoyable.
Similar premise, in that the "Hero" is labeled a criminal and needs to defeat the corrupt "good guys".
Both stories are about rebellious and powerful groups of people fighting against nation-wide evil. And both are equally awesome.
Detailing the journey of the main characters, Hunter x Hunter and Nanatsu no Taizai are firm examples of an adventurous series. Both series have supernatural/fantasy concepts along incorporated shounen style battles. The main male protagonists have similar personalities but deeps down cares about the comrades they meet during their journey. Recommended for anyone who is interested in a cleverly written story in a fictional world.
Been reading up to chapter 37;

- The main character makes you think of Natsu in a way, with his friends somewhat resembling: Lucy, Grey/Gajeel, Juvia and Happy if you look at their relationships with one another.
- Great fight scenes.
- Some fanservice exists in this manga but it isn't it's a big selling point or a main reason to read this manga (which is a good thing).
- Getting stronger to protect friends is a theme that has been relevant already.
- Sudden power up exists like in FT but not whenever it would be nice to see, only in certain situations, not random. Can't say more without spoiling.
- You could say the 'wizards' thing is replaced with 'knights'.
- Both manga are fun to read.
- Has both comedy and serious moments.
