As you remember, through social networks there was already talk about a possible continuation of the manga and anime, before the announcement was made officially. Most comments mentioned that it could be a not so advanced story, in which King Arthur will be seen as the new protagonist, accompanied by the children of Meliodas and Elizabeth, Tristán and Ban and Elaine, Lancelot, who in the original legend are part of the round table.

This theory was formulated after one of the first works by mangaka Nakaba Suzuki came to light, which was titled Rising Impact. This was starring two young men: Tristán and Lancelot, so it is believed that the cartoonist will take this opportunity to try once again with the story that started it all. Will the children of the deadly sins grow up to look like this?
