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.

Staff
Chief Director: Noriyuki Abe (Nanatsu no Taizai Movie: Tenkuu no Torawarebito)
Director: Bob Shirahata (Aguu: Tensai Ningyou)
Script: Rintarou Ikeda (Nanatsu no Taizai Movie 2: Hikari ni Norowareshi Mono-tachi)
Studio: Alfred Imageworks, Marvy Jack

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.

A-1 Pictures adapted manga into a 24-episode television anime in Fall 2014, followed by the four-episode Seisen no Shirushi (Signs of Holy War) television special in Summer 2016. The second season, Imashime no Fukkatsu (Revival of the Commandments), aired in Winter 2018.

The Tenkuu no Torawarebito (Prisoners of the Sky) anime movie premiered in Japan in August 2018. Studio Deen produced the third season, Kamigami no Gekirin (Wrath of the Gods), in Fall 2019. The fourth season, Fundo no Shinpan, premiered in 24 episodes in Winter 2021. The second and latest movie in the franchise, Hikari ni Norowareshi Mono-tachi, opened in Japan on July 2 (pictured right).

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.

The main appeal of this show was its animation. A shame that it keeps getting shitty adaptations.

dunno. i guess the casual reader just simply drop it without much of thought (i am one too) . the latest volume of the sequel can't even pass 100K in oricon. it used to sold around 700K during it's peak.


I just find it weird to have such a big hype about changing studio if you don't like the story as a whole.
maybe anime only watcher? or very dedicated manga fans? who knows.

the manga it self has really steep sales decline over the years. people just isn't as much liked the franchise in general as it used to be. the issue is not solely just animation studio. the story it self also isn't well received

Staff could've been OK until I saw Marvy Jack again with some no-name CGI studio.

I'll pass on this one.

I understand that Japanese audiences are different from Western audiences, but do the Japanese really like the show so much at the same time as they do so much hatred in the West? Also, why does the west hate it so much after season 3?

This project was doomed when Aniplex cut the $$$ and NNT went to DEEN.
Greedy Netflix is milking this anime to death with cheap money.

The new animation makes its close to being unwatchable....The last season was better but it's still nowhere near as good as it was in season 1

I don't follow the series but that.. does not look good.

just stop Netflix, pelase..... there's no need to constantly produce new stuff with tiny budgets and an even smaller production time. Quality over quantity damn it

Do people hate it just because of the change of studio?
