If you are unfamiliar with The Seven Deadly Sins, you can read up on its Netflix description below:

“When a kingdom is taken over by tyrants, the deposed princess begins a quest to find a disbanded group of evil knights to help take back her realm.”

For those of you who want to know more about the series, then you can catch-up on it easily. The Seven Deadly Sins tells the historical tale of a group of knights who once looked over the land of Britannia. After being unfairly disbanded, the knights go their separate ways and are presumed dead. But, when a rogue group of Holy Knights overtake the kingdom, Britannia’s princess goes in search of the fabled group. And, with the help of the Seven Deadly Sins, war is waged over the coveted country.

The series debuted in October 2012 in Weekly Shonen Magazine and has since sold more than 10 million volumes. A-1 Pictures then adapted the manga into an anime in October 2014. Netflix acquired rights to the show’s English dub, and Crunchyroll releases The Seven Deadly Sins manga simultaneously with its Japanese debut.

The Seven Deadly Sins is available for streaming exclusively for Netflix, and The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War will be available on February 17, 2017.
