The Seven Deadly Sins: The 5th season of The Seven Deadly Sins premiered on Netflix last Monday (28th) and is already successful. The anime is in the top 10 most viewed on the platform in Brazil and continues to draw the attention of many people.
The anime, whose original name is Nanatsu no Taizai, tells the story of the fictional kingdom of Britannia. Among the characters are the Seven Deadly Sins, a group of knights who broke up after being accused of a coup against the Kingdom of Liones.
The group’s defeat came at the hands of the Holy Knights, who stage a coup d’etat and become rulers of the kingdom. After that, Princess Elizabeth Liones, one of the main protagonists, tries to bring back the Seven Deadly Sins so that they can help her retake the kingdom.
The story is inspired by the Arthurian Cycle, which are a set of legends and literary tales that tell stories of knights in the region of Brittany and the British Isles. In addition to the medieval element, The Seven Deadly Sins mixes magic and religion in the plot.
The manga, the original material on which Netflix’s animation is based, is considered a phenomenon. In 2014, it was voted the 5th best manga to be read by a Japanese magazine. For several years straight, he even figured on the best-selling manga list.
In the audiovisual adaptation, the seasons are called: The Seven Deadly Sins (1st and has two more OVAs), Signs of the Holy War (2nd), Resurrection of the Ten Commandments (3rd and has two more OVAs), Imperial Wrath of the Gods (4th) and the Dragon Judgment (5th).
