It has been decided that «Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse» serialized in «Weekly Shonen Magazine» will be made into a TV animation with the title of «Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse». At the same time, a teaser visual is being shown.
This work is an orthodox sequel to the popular manga «The Seven Deadly Sins,» which has a cumulative circulation of over 37 million copies. Set 16 years after the end of the holy war that occurred in the «Seven Deadly Sins», the main characters of the «Seven Deadly Sins» will also appear. Percival, a boy who lives with his grandfather in a remote area called «God’s Finger», changes his destiny when he meets a mysterious knight and embarks on an endless journey.
The teaser visual depicts Percival, the main character of the film, and Meliodas, the main character of «The Seven Deadly Sins,» standing back to back.
The full text of the comments from the main cast members of «The Seven Deadly Sins» by the original author, Nakaba Suzuki, and Yuki Kaji, who plays the role of Meliodas, is as follows.
[Nakaba Suzuki (Original)]Animated announcement of «Four Knights of Apocalypse» on the 10th anniversary of «Seven Deadly Sins» !! There is no doubt that you will be able to keep an eye on what kind of chemical reaction the young apocalypse protagonists will show !! Thank you for your manga and anime!
[Yuki Kaji (role of Meliodas)]Congratulations on the animation of «Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse»! It makes me very happy to feel that the world that Meliodas fought and defended for everything is connected to the next generation. Meliodas in this work is the position of the main character «father». Nine years before I passed the audition for the anime «The Seven Deadly Sins,» it was a world line that I never dreamed of (laughs). While enjoying such various changes myself … First of all, I would like to celebrate the departure of Percival grandly! Percival-kun! Best regards to my son!
[Sora Amamiya (role of Elizabeth)]If you thought that you had just celebrated the new serialization, the good news of the animation is already! Congratulations !! I felt that the good-tempo conversations of the funny and attractive characters that came out one after another seemed to be heard from the manga, so I think that you can actually hear it in the animation. I’m looking forward to it! The character of «The Seven Deadly Sins» has also appeared, and someday Elizabeth will …? I would like to wait for the follow-up report while expecting future developments!
[Ayumu Murase (role of Tristan in youth)]Congratulations on the animation of «Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse»! I’m still playing only with the tape I sent during the audition, but I’m looking forward to it personally because Tristan seems to play an important role. First of all, I would like to face him firmly and play through the story of «Edinburgh of grudges», so please take a look at that as well!
