The new story about Percival and his journey to find his fellow knights in the sequel, The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse, is about to hit Netflix. The streamer has dropped a new trailer for the anime, revealing not just the Holy Knight of Kingdom of Liones’ different kind of adventure but also its official release date: January 31, 2024. And as it reveals, the long wait will be soon over. You can watch the preview below:
Based on the manga by Nakaba Suzuki, Four Knights of the Apocalypse is the sequel to The Seven Deadly Sins after the latter ends in June 2021. In the trailer, Elonsid appears, talking to someone and saying this person doesn’t understand the problem while referring to Percival as a threat to the majesty and the world.
The villain continues that the Four Knights of the Apocalypse are prophesied to destroy the world. However, Percival seems to be surprised by this claim, with Shin telling him to blame it on the prophecy, which comes from his father. The fox also tells him he knows where his father and friends are. But Percival has a strong hate for his father for killing his grandpa.
However, while on the verge of death, Vargis wants Percival to find the people he can trust and spend his life with instead of saving him. From there, the young boy is seen with Donnie, a street performer; Naciens, a pharmacist; and Ann, who aspires to become a holy knight. “Crush the evil and help the weak,” Percival says as he faces Pergard, Elonsid’s countryman who wants to take the kid back.
