Also Known As
The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments
七つの大罪 戒めの復活

Britannia, once home to an active group of knights known as the Seven Deadly Sins who since disbanded after they allegedly plotted to overthrow the Liones Kingdom. Rumor has it they were defeated by the Holy Knights, the most powerful knights in Britannia who protect the kingdom. However, 10 years later, the Holy Knights stage a coup and capture the kingdom under their tyrannical rule, forcing the third princess of the kingdom, Elizabeth, to journey the land in search of the Seven Deadly Sins, the only ones strong enough to defeat the Holy Knights and reclaim the kingdom.

Along her journey, she meets Meliodas, the owner of a bar called the Boar Hat and the leader of the Seven Deadly Sins who agrees to help her track down the other members and end the Holy Knights’ coup. Together with him and his talking pet companion Hawk, she begins working at his bar as a waitress as she continues her search for the remaining members.

The first season of the anime adaptation premiered in Japan in October 2014. It featured animation by A-1 Pictures, Tensai Okamura as director, Shotaro Suga as scriptwriter, Keigo Sasaki as character designer, and Hiroyuki Sawano as music composer.
