Coming Oct 5th, Nakaba Suzuki’s The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) manga began streaming a new 30-second TV commercial for the series on Sunday. The newest preview features the anime’s opening theme music Netsujo no Spectrum (Spectrum of Passion) by Ikimono-gakari (Naruto Shippūden, Bleach). You can visit the official site here.
AnimeNewsNetwork took the time to translate the short preview for everyone:

Narrator: The Seven Deadly Sins
The manga was launched in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2012. Kodansha Comics published the 4th English volume this month. Here is a synopsis of the series story:
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?
