The Seven Deadly Sins, produced by Studio DEEN, is a high fantasy isekai anime where the characters have complexities and multi-layered mythologies of a band of knights in Britannia, one disbanded a decade ago, who was framed for a coup versus the Liones Kingdom, only to find out that the coup was brought by the Holy Knights, manipulated by a demon, Fraudrin.
The third princess of Liones, Princess Elizabeth Lioness, pursued to convince the Seven Deadly Sins through their leader, Meliodas, to be able to clear the tainted names and liberate the kingdom of Liones from the Holy Knights, used by Fraudrin, for which the purpose is to unseal the Demon Race from being imprisoned.
The Seven Deadly Sins stood against the Ten Commandments which was led by the brother of Meliodas, Zeldris, and the fight revealed something more, Meliodas' true identity – Meliodas is the cursed son of the Demon King, with destiny intertwined intimately with Elizabeth.
