Is this a joke? It wasn't April Fools yet. Damn it A1 Pictures!
EDIT:
Why Wikipedia got 2 seasons of Nanatsu no Taizai this 2016?
Could be the 2 Season would air in Fall 2016?

Wikipedia is not reliable most of the times.

Yeah, But it goes the same with MAL. They are too quick to post even if it's not 100% sure.
And it's not just Wiki but also ANN, so read the link below. (read it full)

Cool, I guess. No, no really.

There goes the hope for the 10 commandment arc...for now!

I'm kinda disappointed at how this is not a full second season... but since I love Nanatsu no Taizai I might watch eventually.

LOOOL

All the plebs got excited

So much for a second season. But this is fine.

So it's just 4 special episodes, more likely OVA I think.

With these announcement, still curious what A1 project in FALL season, hhmm maybe Granblue Fantasy and Eromanga Sensei.
Magi season 3 maybe

At least we got 4 episodes.
There's not enough to adapt another 2 cour yet anyways.

Just think of this as a low budget Nanatsu no Taizai movie, and like all other shounen movies it has nothing to do with the manga. It makes sense to do this, especially if Arslan only needs 8 episodes to finish off the current arc.

It keeps Nanatsu no Taizai in anime viewers mindspace, will give a small boost to manga sales and give enough space the manga to get enough material for season 2. Which could air after Iron Blood Orphans 2 in Spring 2017.... if it did that would be over 110 chapters before it even aired....

Expected an original story due to the weird alternate ending they gave the first season.

Not sure what to expect since it's an original story so I'll go in with low expectations.

Also, I completely skimmed over the "4 episodes" part. What the heck lol

Damn that sucks...But hey, at least it's better than nothing :/

Mar 27, 2016 3:52 AM by Kryptiq

Misleading as hell. There's enough content for a single cour atm, but I can understand them not wanting to do it. Surprised they're not just animating the extra chapters like the vampire arc and stuff, could have been a nice introduction to Escanor for anime viewers since that is where he was first revealed.

Quite disappointing but oh well : /

Mar 27, 2016 2:22 AM by Xenovius

Better than noting


From what I heard the 1st season adapted around 100 chapters. Maybe they will wait for another 100 chapter before making 2nd season

Mar 27, 2016 2:12 AM by thepath

I'm glad that it's not a second season. Not because the series is bad, but because that will give A1 Pictures more time to adapt properly the manga unlike the rush of the first season.

well..I kinda thought A-1 will replace FT 2014 by a long runnig adaption of NnT..:/
I will watch it thou..
But this doesn't even have enough material for 2 cours, does it?

I bet we'll still get S2 eventually later.
