Animax Asia, the region’s first dedicated anime channel, is bringing the television adaptation of today’s hottest manga series The Seven Deadly Sins, to Southeast Asia. Fans of the manga will be happy to see the anime series, set to make its mark in history, stay true to the exciting original plot line, with creative shifts made to deliver a quality viewing experience.
Set in the fictional region of Britannia, which harks back to the European Middle Ages with its towering castles and rolling hills, the story recalls how the kingdom’s most feared knights the Seven Deadly Sins, were sent to exile after being accused of wanting to overthrow the monarchy.
Ten years later when her father King Liones is captured and his throne seized, Princess Elizabeth flees the castle to enlist their help in her revenge and learns the truth that the Sins were framed by the king’s guard, the Holy Knights. She quickly meets Meliodas, captain of the fallen Sins and his unlikely sidekick, the talking pig Hawk. The three then embark on a harrowing, action-packed journey in search of the other six, each distinguished by the beast carved into their skin symbolizing their legendary powers.
The Seven Deadly Sins premieres on 4 March at 10pm, Monday to Friday, First and Exclusively on Animax Asia (Astro Ch 715)
