The Much Anticipated Release of Seven Deadly Sins Season 2

Anime is a Japanese hand-drawn or computer animation. The word is the abbreviated pronunciation of “animation” in the Japanese language. Other than Japan, anime is used to refer specifically to animation from Japan, so it is specifically a Japanese term. Personally, anime are my favourite kind of animations — they are so colourful in graphics, have vibrant characters, and fantastical themes. Out of the vast array of anime’s, one popular of them is The Seven Deadly Sins that is commonly being used and Known to be common.

Season 2 To Be Released Very Soon

The Success

Before the anime adaptation, this was the first manga ever that sold over 10 million copies to the market. In 2014, it sold over 4.6 million copies and became the 9th bestselling manga that year considering the amount of sales. In 2015, the manga sold over 10.3 million copies. It also earned international nominations such as Best Youth Comic at the 42nd International Comic Festival In France that year alone.

TV Adaptation

Netflix was the one that licensed series for English release. All 24 episodes were released on November 1, 2015, in both subtitled and English dub formats. The television special, labelled as “Season 2″, has also been licensed by Netflix and was released on supposed to release on February 17, 2017. But the released content is just four episodes with 24 minutes in length.

Those 24 minutes episodes were actually from “the Signs of Holy War” which is a mini-series that is considered as a sequel to the Season 1 episodes. This means that indeed Netflix will still be showing an extension of Season 1. On February 14, 2017, Funimation announced that they acquired the first anime for home video distribution for US and Canada and will release the series on Blu-ray and DVD later this year.

Plot

The legend takes place in an ancient kingdom where humans and non-humans exist. Before the events of the anime’s first season, a catastrophe occurred, allegedly caused by a mischievous group of hyper-powerful Knights, who embody people’s greatest flaws, and who go by the name of Seven Deadly Sins. With the public condemning the Knights, the powerful group just disappeared.

Ten years into the story — a coup by the Holy Knights results in losing of the Royal Family, except for one. Princess Elizabeth, who is the only one who has escaped the coup and went on a quest. Her mission is to find the Deadly Sins, kerb the coup and rescue the Royal Family.

While such scenario or plot has been several times before, this series is none the less able to capture the attention and hearts of viewers through its compelling, classic action-filled storyline.

Will season two get a reboot?

It is still indefinite whether season 2 will be a sequel or else. As a writer and illustrator of the manga, Nakaba Suzuki has mentioned that he has plans to release three different story arcs for the manga. Each of them is rumoured to be 100 chapters of 300 chapters in total. However, it is expected that the 2nd season may introduce the series’ seventh character, even though he hasn’t made an appearance yet in the manga.

On the other hand, if the second season follows the manga, viewers are likely to see a new group of enemies. These will be collectively known as “The Ten Commandments.” These characters belong to the Demon Clan, which was resurrected right after the end of the first season. The fans can anticipate an action-packed season two if the anime follows the manga.

Until the Anime enthusiasts are already speculating on the season 2 plot. Many are presuming more fighting scenes between the seven sins and the Demon Clan, also the Ten Commandments. Some are looking forward to knowing what sin did Meliodas did and the possibility of new characters in the series.

Talking About More Speculations

The season two of the very popular TV anime series is still to be aired in the US. It is directed by Kinji Yoshimoto — the success of the four episode Original Video Animation “The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War ” compelled the studio A1 pictures to take this decision.

The fans in Japan recently viewed the four episodes OVA entitled “The Sign of Holy War” which aired from August 28 to September 18 on JNN. This has also been aired in the US on Netflix.

The telecast date of Season 2 is still unknown, but rumours are rife that it will hit the small screen in 2017. The storyline is expected to take off from where the original video animation concluded. The focus still will be on Meliodas, the protagonist of Season 1. The main characters of Season 2 are expected to be Elizabeth Liones, Gowther, Merlin, Ban, the King/Harlequin, and Diane.

While the upcoming season 2 is still going to be directed by TomokazuTokoro, and is will going to be written by YukinoAyana, there are reports that the upcoming season 2′ won’t stay loyal to the storyline of the manga. The last series had a total of 24 episodes, and it seems that the trend will be the same in season 2′.

Conclusion

It is going to be an interesting year for Seven Deadly Sins fans — speculations are rolling around. The success of the franchise of ”Seven Deadly Sins” is way beyond comparison and Nakaba Suzuki, the original writer of the manga series, has always been appreciated for his imagination. Even though Masashi Suzuki is going to be the scriptwriter of the Season 2 anime series, the fans can expect the same kind of dramatic storyline as before.

This is a perfect anime for beginners to jump straight into or for the veteran watchers it has that fantastic blend of Fantasy, Comedy and Romance therefore without a shadow of a doubt is one of the best anime’s on Netflix to add to their ever growing list.
