"The Seven Deadly Sins" fans would be unhappy to know that their favorite manga will take a break until January. Manga creator Suzuki Nakaba will undergo surgery and would need to get a long rest for faster recuperation.

The Weekly Shonen Magazine's first issue for 2017 announced that "The Seven Deadly Sins" manga creator Suzuki Nakaba will be undergoing surgery, thus, putting the manga for almost 2-month break. Besides, there hasn't been a chapter scheduled yet for Nanatsu no Taizai for the forthcoming issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine. As a substitute, the magazine will have a special four-page 'omake' or bonus in place of the chapter, according to a blog from YonkouProductions.

Suzuki Nakaba sent a message to the avid readers of "The Seven Deadly Sins", saying that, "I'm sorry to have to pause, but I plan to resume editing as soon as the medical allows. But we'll be also keeping in touch at the miniseries! Thank you so much for continuing to read and we'll see each other very soon!"

Crunchyroll reported that even though the main series will be on break for a while, the special side stories will carry on getting published. The serialization of the main series is slated to resume in Issue 7 of 2017 that will become available on January 18, 2017 in the Weekly Shonen Magazine Editorial Department.  

Meanwhile, the storyline of the second season of "The Seven Deadly Sins" is anticipated to sustain the events after the four-part OVA series, with a title "The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War." Dedicated followers are thrilled to see Princess Elizabeth as she keeps on with her journey to search for the Sacred Knights and to regain the Liones Kingdom.

The first episode was released on October 2014 with the same titular name "The Seven Deadly Sins" ("Nanatsu no Taizai") which tells the story of Elizabeth, the Kingdom of Liones' third princess. Her empire was brought down by the Holy Knights of Britannia and could not only hope to re-claim her kingdom but also to find justice in an unreasonable world.

"The Seven Deadly Sins" manga series is a widely accepted franchise since generated a 24-episode anime series, numerous manga volumes, as well as light novel that will be released in North America on May 2017.
