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

Nominated for the 7th annual Manga Taishou Award.

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.

I'm personally a fan of the art style, captures your eyes, has a nice feel, and really gives you an urge to explore the surroundings(even if that's impossible). Has a decent start but we won't know how it fares till more chapters comes out.

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

The modern Dragon Ball Z.

This is genuinely one of the craziest, action filled shounen manga I've read in recent times. The artwork is top-notch, the character designs are great, and the story is pretty intriguing so far. The battles are on the level of DBZ, with all the characters containing explosive power way beyond the standard manga hero, and for people into that this is definitely a manga I recommend picking up. I expect this to go places.

Like all Suzuki Nakaba's works, there are grand characters that overflow with "power". It's WAY to early to tell if the plot will become complex, as it is in an introduction step...but if you like his previous works, then you will definitely enjoy looking at cool characters that are able to do what we all would like to.

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

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.

the art of this series really reminds of the days when i used to read asterix and obelix as a kid. The story sounds good but the mc acts a little weird all the time. the timing of the ecchi moments is kinda weird too. but i like it and i think the you should give it a try.

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.

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. :/
