The series is based on the Japanese fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from October 2012 to March 2020, with the chapters collected into forty-one tankōbon volumes. The manga features a setting similar to the European Middle Ages, with its titular group of knights representing the seven deadly sins.
The series was adapted into an anime television series where the first two seasons titled "The Seven Deadly Sins" and "The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments" are produced by A-1 Pictures, which ran October 2014 to June 2018 with a total of 48 episodes. 3 original video animation (OVA) episodes and 4 special episodes were also released during that time. The third season of the anime under the title "The Seven Deadly Sins: Imperial Wrath of the Gods" was then premiered on October 9, 2019 with 24 episodes animated by Studio Deen in collaboration with Marvy Jack.
