Ten years ago, the most powerful group of knights, the Seven Deadly Sins, tried to overthrow the kingdom. Their coup failed, and the seven members disappeared. Rumors have been swirling of a Rust Knight crying out for the Seven Deadly Sins. The rumors prove true when a suit of armor appears at a tavern run by its youthful-looking owner.


News – The Seven Deadly Sins & Yowamushi Pedal win Kodansha Manga Awards

ANN reports US licensed series The Seven Deadly Sins and Yowamushi Pedal tied for best shounen manga in the 39th Kodansha Manga Awards. The first series is simu-published by Crunchyroll, and Kodansha USA releases the print volumes. Yowamushi Pedal was recently acquired by Yen Press. The winners for best shoujo manga, general manga, and the special award are not licensed in the US.

I really like The Seven Deadly Sins. It’s a series that seems like it would be rather typical shounen fare, but it puts enough twists to make it fresh. I never paid much attention to Yowamushi Pedal until Yen Press announced their license and so many people were ecstatic. This news makes me more interested now.
