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 daughter, sets out on a journey to find the "Seven Deadly Sins", and to enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.

Awesome characters

The mangaka has figured out that people care more about what happens to characters when you take time to develop them. In no other Shounen have I seen an entire chapter where two characters just talk about how they feel about their loved ones, making their romantic relationships more developed and the friendship between each other more real.

Reading through the comments
Seems like people are complaining preemptively about the villain. They obviously aren't caught up. wink
Comparisons to Übel Blatt are unfair. For Übel Blatt (poor thing)
Comparisons to Fullmetal are suprisingly ignorant. Compare Naruto to fullmetal and you'll find that lacking as well. Be realistic.
No one forgot The protagonist had that power, but seeing the cost of it, it's pretty obvious why he hasn't used it before.
If you think the protagonist and his love interest haven't developed we obviously aren't reading the same manga. They haven't developed as much as other characters but it's still there.

I'd realistically give it 9/10 but since it's getting more hate then it deserves I'll keep it at 10/10.

Because I'm too lazy to write the same review with different wording, so I'm just gonna say yes to what @MondSemmel said.

Is it because it was a shounen? Nope. This one was pretty awesome Hagane no Renkinjutsushi.

Ohh I love this mange, it may have some boring parts but it funny with pinch of romance. It has 102 chapters so far, so I can't wait to see what's coming up. And I love the settings in which the manga takes place. The art it cool too. Although the knight's armors are kinda weird sometimes, I really recommend this manga

Yet another disappointment.

Hardly any character undergoes any believable or interesting character development. The protagonist is a typical Chivalrous Pervert, the damsel in distress has no redeeming qualities, the villain is evil for evil's sake, and so on. None of them develop meaningfully in any sense, and when the story tries for pathos, it fails, sometimes horribly. Chapter 96 is an amazing example of this.

Oh, and the protagonist is omnipotent but inexplicably hasn't used that power for the last 40+ chapters, allowing the Evil Bad to get away with what he does. It's not even the Bleach-style why-doesn't-my-Bankai-work-yet-again - it's as if everyone including the writer forgot he had that power.

As I said, disappointing.

EDIT: And I honestly can't believe it, but chapter 106 introduces a DBZ-style Scouter: "His power level is..." Such nonsense.

But now it's just complete utter nonsensical crap.
And I was hoping the Mary Sue damsel-in-distress would change, but she didn't. She's the same.
The art's amazing, but that's it. I'm fed up. I'm outta here. c90 wasn't even readable anymore. It's ridiculous. It had so much promise, and then it went all into the plunger. e _e Haven't been this disappointed since Toriko...
So much for "the new Dragonball". Pft. :/

My favorite shounen right now. All shounen manga should learn from this one. Every character is interesting and complex and the fights make me want to see an anime version so much.

October 2014 update:
Something strange has happened to the story. Plot devices are being used that don't seem ideal and the main villain's motives are unclear at best. No idea what happened here.

I went into this wondering if this was a shounen-ized, watered-down version of Übel Blatt and I can say that is exactly what I found it to be.
This approach gives no apprehension. Development is also advancing at a faster pace, due to it being shounen. Simply put, having read Übel Blatt, which was dark and mature, reading through this easy going, blatant and ecchi take of it made me wince.
That is not to say this makes a terrible manga. It just pales greatly in comparison to Übel Blatt.

^written when it first came out. Usually ppl rant about plagiarizing and such so i found it surprising no one noticed

Ot here, but you could compare this with Übel Blatt, bc the premise is the same. Your other comparisons are not. Also I guess you can't tell the difference between shounen ecchi and more mature seinen scenes.

Verdict: you can't read both, or think of both at the same time despite the duplicate synopsis.

If you're into shounen this is a "must read" manga, definitely went over my initial expectations.

Lol @ the guy comparing this to Ubel Blatt. Ubel Blatt dark, mature, and not ecchi like this manga? Haha what series are you reading. Ubel Blatt easily has just as much if not more fanservice and its recent arcs have been pretty boring. If Seven Deadly Sins is a watered down version of Ubel Blatt, then what the hell is Ubel Blatt compared to Berserk or Bastard?

Drinking champagne and complaining it's not Guinness essentially. Seven Deadly Sins is loads of fun, hitting on all the tropes of these types of series but also adding its own whacky and over-the-top spin. There's tons of promise for this comic and Suzuki Nakaba proves he can contend with all the other up and coming series.

if you are reading this simply because of the ubel blatt similarities don't. the plot is very similar, but the focus of this manga is entirely different. if you go in expecting it to be like ubel blatt you will hate it, and that's saddening because for what it is supposed to be(comedy) it's a great read so far. it's got an interesting enough story, good char backgrounds, and a lot of laughs.... which is all it really needs

(also gets a touch of epic romance a bit into it... was really surprising once it happened but i can tell you that you will shed big manly tears for
