UPDATE!

Hey everyone! Crunchyroll got a chance to do an interview with the author of The Seven Deadly Sins, Suzuki Nakaba, and you get to view it here FIRST! Enjoy!


Q1) You are both a story writer and an illustrator, how do you manage to combine these two types of work?

A: I don't consider the illustrations and the story separate. I don't write down the story in words, I envision the characters in my head, and think about what they could do that would make an interesting story. So the story and the images are made at the same time.
I enjoy the style of making both the illustrations and story myself.

Q2) Where did you find your inspiration to create the series The Seven Deadly Sins?

A: I've always enjoyed movies like Hissatsu Shigotonin (The Ultimate Assassin) and Terminator 2, where a person you thought was bad turns out to be good, and I wanted to write something like that myself. I think that's where the idea for the characters to be “sinners” came from. In the sense that they're not perfectly good people, I've also been inspired by dark hero and antihero works. The movies of Jean Gabin, the movie The Professional and the historical figure Cesare Borgia could be inspirations as well.
The idea behind The Seven Deadly Sins was to create my own take on the legend of King Arthur. Ever since I found a book about King Arthur when I was in the 7th grade when I was looking for foreign fantasy stories in the library, I've loved him. King Arthur's story isn't told as a single tale, it's a combination of many stories written by many people. It's the same idea with the Cthulu Mythos. I'd always wanted to be one of the people who wrote stories about King Arthur, and that's partially what drove me to write The Seven Deadly Sins. There are some characters in Arthur's legends who appear only as names, and who don't appear in any stories. I'd like to draw characters like that someday.

Q3) Could you introduce the hero of The Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas? What are his powers? How did you come up with this character?

The thing with Meliodas is that no one has any idea what he's thinking; not his allies, not his enemies, and not the readers. But he's a guy you can trust. I think that's what makes him attractive. He's also a bit of a pervert. But there's a secret to his power hidden in the fact that he's a pervert. Heheh. His strength and his perversion actually both get their power from the same place. Look forward to the day when this mystery is revealed in the manga!


OK guys! Keep the artwork coming, good luck!

OH MY GOSH, those prizes are incredible! Even the four runner-up prizes could be a grand prize on its own!

Nanatsu no Taizai is a really great Manga. If I had to pick a favorite character, it would have to be King in his Chubby mode.



I've never had allot of confidence in my art skills, but I believe in small miracles. I'm gonna enter this with my best shot!

Just one character! Not quite sure how they are fitting it into the story but multiple characters would probably be too difficult to squeeze in. Thanks for asking

Darlingdanichan, can the picture be a reference to anther series? I have a nice idea involving King but I don't know if it'll start something with copyright because of the clothes I want to draw him in.

I would guess this is a worldwide contest and are not exclusively limited to CR users.
The bar on this contest is rather high but you'll get a chance to publish your art in both Japanese/English DeadlySin manga/monthly release.

If I am mistaken about this contest being open to world wide, please correct me Thanks
