The upcoming issue of  Weekly Shounen Magazine has announced that Nakaba Suzuki’s fantasy adventure manga series Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins) is getting an anime adaptation.

The series began as a one-shot manga in November 2011 before it began its serialization the next year.

The “Seven Deadly Sins,” a group of evil knights who conspired to overthrow the kingdom of Britannia, were said to have been eradicated by the Holy Knights, although some claim that they still live. Ten years later, the Holy Knights have staged a Coup d’état and assassinated the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth, the king’s only daughter, sets out on a journey to find the “Seven Deadly Sins,” and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.
