The Seven Deadly Sins manga is not running as scheduled in this year’s 10th issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine due to creator Nakaba Suzuki’s sudden illness. The magazine says the manga will continue as usual in the next week’s issue.

The manga is described as:

When they were accused of trying to overthrow the monarchy, the feared warriors the Seven Deadly Sins were sent into exile. Princess Elizabeth discovers the truth – the Sins were framed by the king’s guard, the Holy Knights – too late to prevent them from assassinating her father and seizing the throne.

Now the princess is on the run, seeking the Sins to help her reclaim the kingdom. But the first Sin she meets, Meliodas, is a little innkeeper with a talking pig. He doesn’t even have a real sword. Have the legends of the Sins’ strength been exaggerated?

Suzuki launched The Seven Deadly Sins in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English. Crunchyroll is also posting the new chapters as they appear in Japan.
