Produced by A-1 Pictures, the first anime series aired in Fall 2014, followed by a four-episode television special titled Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi in Summer 2016. Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu, the second television anime season, premiered in Winter 2018. The Nanatsu no Taizai: Tenkuu no Torawarebito anime film opened in Japan last August.

Netflix acquired exclusive streaming rights for the anime series and batch released all episodes of each broadcast installment after it had finished airing. Funimation licensed the anime for home video release and shipped first anime season in two Blu-ray and DVD volumes in May and June 2017.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English in 2013 and published the 31st volume on March 5.

I wonder if this is timed to be the final season, or if there will be a fourth. The manga is ending soon.

Can't it just end already? I mean its manga, not the anime.

Season 2 was an OVA. I even skipped it.

Season two as listed by netflix or MAL because they are different things.
Also why skip it?

Uhm are you guys okay ? Why are you all complaining about the studio change when Season 2 looked like total shit and only had a few scenes of sakuga in the Meliodas vs 10 Commandments fight mid season

Studio DEEN? Why is everything changing studios lately? OPM, Konosuba and now Nanatsu. And it's always changing to a worse studio... Hm.
At least Konosuba kept the staff, but the others...


OPM also kept most of the staff.

Good news. I can't wait until that day.

Anyone know if this studio change would affect the Netflix license?

"A1's adaptations just felt too lifeless to me." totally agree with this.

Pretty great to have season 3 confirmed but DEEN?

What's with the changes of studios recently?

This.. What's this trend?

Apr 10, 11:55 AM by ZoroZoldyck

*Sees article* Please don't let it be Pierrot. *Sees Studio Deen* This might be the only worse choice.

you know what? why isnt A1 again? because they are busy doing their job for SAO Alicization part 2 so it was a good choice to hand this project to another studio. i hope deen will make it better than season 2 was. cant wait to see Meliodas vs Escanor to be animated!
I mean, that does make sense if you think about it. There's also the fact that there's not a single new anime being produced by A-1 Pictures for this Spring season. They're most likely focusing all their resources for Alicization Part 2.
