The Nanatsu no Taizai Manga (Japanese: 七つの大罪 , Seven Deadly Sins) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. It’s been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine since October 2012, with the chapters gathered into twentyone tankōbon volumes as of June 17, 2016. The manga features a setting much like the European Middle Ages, with its titular group of knights signifying the seven deadly sins.
The Seven Deadly Sins were once an active group of knights in the region of Britannia (ブリタニア Buritania), who disbanded after they allegedly plotted to overthrow the Liones Kingdom (リオネス王国 Rionesu Ōkoku). Their supposed defeat came at the hands of the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to endure that they were living. Ten years after, the Holy Knights becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom and obtained the king, staged a coup d’état. Elizabeth, the third princess, then starts out on a journey to locate the Seven Deadly Sins and enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.
Characters in Nanatsu no Taizai Manga
The Dragon’s Sin of wrath and the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins. He is the main protagonist and owner of the Boar Hat (豚の帽子亭) bar, known for its incredible ale and less understood for its horrid food (cooked by Meliodas). Although he appears to be no older than a child, Meliodas is really very strong and is significantly older than he seems. Despite being the Sin of Wrath, he’s infrequently angered, and is, actually, perverted, childishly playful, sure, and kind to those he cares about. He’s also been considered (and after confirmed) to be part of the devil family.
The Third Princess of the Kingdom of Liones who, along with Meliodas, is hunting for the Seven Deadly Sins in order to fight against the Holy Knights. She’s a chief female protagonist in the story and becomes a server at the Boar Hat pub after she’s saved by Meliodas. She is timid, kind to a fault, and trusting. Elizabeth is driven by her commitment to saving the lives of those within her kingdom, even if this means sacrificing herself.
A talking pig and Meliodas ’s company. He is introduced as the cleanser of the Boar Hat bar who helps clean the disgusting food garbage. He often scolds Meliodas for his perverted ways. The fact he is a pig that can discuss is a running gag through the show. Hawk is referred to as “ master” by Ban.
