The final battle of Seven Deadly Sins shows the threat of King Arthur Pendragon. Just because they can handle the disaster in the final season, it doesn’t mean that it won’t show up in the future.
With the Demon Lord’s demise, the four races finally find peace under the regime of Meliodas. Yet, the old comrade, Arthur, somehow becomes a human supremacist. Using the power of Chaos, he unites human knights who still suffer from the Holy War years ago and begins terrorizing other non-human kingdoms.
Nakaba Suzuki’s Four Knights of Apocalypse tells the next generation of Seven Deadly Sins. Just like its predecessor, the popularity of the series is still skyrocketing to the point that it deserves an anime.
After one year of waiting, the official finally released the release date of the series. It is confirmed that the Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse will premiere on October 8, 2023. Netflix will stream the series across the world.
The official also released a new PV for the series. What kind of information does it entail? Read on!
The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse Trailer
The trailer was released on September 25, 2032. It highlights the background story where four knights will cause the end of the world. The prophecy clearly portrays the grandeur appearance of Percival and Co.
As the PV suggests, Percival only meets four companions along the journey; Sin, Donny, Nasiens, and Anne, who aren’t other knights of apocalypse. It means that the anime will cover at least three volumes of manga after Percival’s team finally assembles.
The first series, Seven Deadly Sins, successfully adapted the whole manga chapters for five seasons, despite having a negative response for the third season and beyond. It is clear that the sequel will only scrape the surface of the story. But, will it manage to continue beyond that? Can the Four Knights of the Apocalypse follow the successful path of the Seven Deadly Sins?
The key visual was released on September 9, 2023. It depicts Percival’s team confronting Arthur’s army. For starters, the sword Percival held is the same as Meliodas from the Seven Deadly Sins. Maybe like the first series, the sword will hold significance in the series.
