The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse, written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki, made its debut in November 2020. The manga officially began its serialization in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2021 and has since been collected into 12 manga volumes.
Kodansha USA licensed the series for simulpublication in North America, making it available on various digital platforms like Crunchyroll Manga, BookWalker, ComiXology, and Amazon Kindle, with weekly English translations.
Percival’s peaceful and uneventful existence on God’s Finger, a secluded paradise in the sky, takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious intruder disrupts his calm life and reveals a startling connection to his past.
Fueled by the loss of everything he valued, Percival goes on a solo quest for answers. As he travels through the unfamiliar world, he finds comfort and friendship in newfound allies.
But as the truth of his destiny, with the fate of the world, unravels, he must confront the weight of his purpose and how it will impact those around him.
The Four Knights of Apocalypse kicked off to an exciting start with its storyline and flawless art style by Nakaba Suzuki. Suzuki’s artistry takes the spotlight, portraying characters with distinct and interesting designs, and improving the overall reading experience.
The characters, though enjoyable, might not be immediately memorable, as they seem to fit familiar stereotypes. However, the manga introduces intriguing elements such as different types of magic, reminiscent of “Nen” in “Hunter x Hunter,” adding depth and structure to the story.
Although some aspects remain unexplained at this point, it leaves room for potential character development and world-building, which we hope to see in the anime adaptation!
