The Netflix Festival Japan 2021 event announced a two-part spin-off anime movie for Nakaba Suzuki's Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins) manga on Tuesday. The event also revealed the main staff and a teaser trailer.
The two-part movie, subtitled Ensa no Edinburgh (Grudge of Edinburgh), will feature an original story written by Suzuki, centering Meliodas's son, Tristan. The first part will premiere worldwide exclusively on Netflix in 2022.
The adventure fantasy manga began in Weekly Shounen Magazine in October 2012 and ended its seven and a half year run last March. Kodansha published the 41th and final volume last May. Nanatsu no Taizai has a cumulative 37 million copies of its compiled volumes in print.
Suzuki launched the Mokushiroku no Yonkishi (Four Knights of the Apocalypse) sequel manga in Weekly Shounen Magazine in on January 27, approximately ten months after concluding the main series. Kodansha published the third volume on September 17, with the fourth volume scheduled for release on November 17. Kodansha US is simulpublising the manga with the Japanese release.
