Seven Deadly Sins is a Japanese manga series created by Nakaba Suzuki. It has been serialized from October 2012 to March 2020 during which its popularity spread far and wide.
In Seven Deadly Sins, we go along the journey of seven knights who were disbanded after being framed. They were regrouped by a Goddess named Elizabeth after which they set on to clear their names.
Throughout the series, we have seen many powerful characters not only from the group of Seven Deadly Sins but also from the group of the Ten Commandments.
The most exciting part of the series was that each character developed in their form and thereby increased their power level as the series progressed.
