Nanatsu no Taizai Synopsis
The Seven Deadly Sins are a group of knights from the Kingdom of Britannia who disbanded ten years ago accused of treason and for having carried out a coup against the Kingdom of Liones and its Holy Knights.
The third princess of Liones, Elizabeth Liones, meets the leader of the Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas, and requests her help in rescuing the honor of the Holy Hairs, who are being manipulated by a demonic entity.
