The Seven Deadly Sins were once an active group of knights in the region of Britannia, who disbanded after they supposedly plotted to overthrow the Liones Kingdom. Their supposed defeat came at the hands of the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that they were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights staged a coup d'état and captured the king, becoming the new, tyrannical rulers of the kingdom. The third princess, Elizabeth, then starts out on a journey to find the Seven Deadly Sins and enlist their help in taking back the kingdom.
The third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, Elizabeth, is on a mission to find the Seven Deadly Sins, a group of extremely powerful but dangerous group of Holy Knights who are now wanted criminals for supposedly betraying the kingdom. She finds Meliodas, the owner of the Boar Hat bar and, unbeknownst to her, the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins. When attacked by Holy Knight apprentice Twigo, Meliodas quickly overcomes the opponent, but reveals his identity in the process. He joins Elizabeth on her journey to find the other Deadly Sins in order to defeat the Holy Knights, who have orchestrated a coup d'état and overthrown the king.
Holy Knight Gilthunder plants his sword in the center of the town of Bernia, thus preventing the village from making the Bernia ale, which was their primary source of income. After innumerable unsuccessful attempts by the villagers to remove the sword, which blocked the water source, Meliodas easily removes the object. A celebration is held at the Boar Hat and Meliodas is hailed as a savior by Bernia's villagers. Gilthunder, wanting to confirm whether the removal of his sword was an accident or not, threw a spear imbued with his power towards the town. Meliodas, however, easily stops and throws the spear back, destroying Fort Solgales. He and Elizabeth decide to proceed to the Forest of White Dreams
Meliodas, Hawk and Elizabeth travel to the Forest of White Dreams that even Holy Knights avoid. There, the Prankster Imps that inhabit the Forest of White Dreams attempt to confuse them by impersonating Hawk and Elizabeth in order to lead them away. After defeating them, they follow them and find the Serpent's Sin of Envy, Diane, sleeping in the forest. Gilthunder suddenly arrives and binds all of them with his lightning magic. Meliodas battles Gilthunder, purposely allows the Holy Knight to defeat him. Under the pretense of dying due to the grave wound, Meliodas acquires information about the whereabouts of two members of the Seven Deadly Sins, King and Ban, as his apparent last wish.
Having discovered the whereabouts of Ban and King, Diane throws Gilthunder out of the forest and Meliodas, Hawk and Elizabeth, now joined by Diane, head toward the Baste Dungeon, where Ban is imprisoned. They later arrive at Dalmary Town where Meliodas is treated by Dana. Diane and Elizabeth begin to argue and discuss about the aspects in which they envy each other. They are suddenly attacked by the Holy Knight Friesia, who tries to destroy the entire town along with the Deadly Sins, but Diane quickly destroys all of her insects. Concurrently, Ban escapes from his cell in the Baste Dungeon and is stopped by Jericho, who unsuccessfully tries to subdue him. Dana unexpectedly reveals that the medicine Meliodas drank was a deadly poison as Golgius appears out of the blue.
Golgius appears and attempts to take Elizabeth and Meliodas' sword back to Liones. Whilst attempting to take the sword, Meliodas awakens, with no effect of the poison showing, proceeding to blast an aura that causes Golgius to make a hasty retreat. Meliodas and Elizabeth set off to Baste Dungeon afterwards, however, they are stopped by a confused Diane, who after hearing the sound of a bell, attacks the group. They try to run away from the berserk Diane, involving a pair of shepherds along the way, however Meliodas soon succumbs to the same bell, and begins to fight Diane. Meanwhile in Baste Dungeon, Ban is shown wandering around after having dealt with Jericho. It is not long before he is found by Jude of the Weird Fangs, who promptly stabs Ban in the chest.
Meliodas and Diane are still fighting each other; Elizabeth shouts for them to snap out of it, and for a few moments they do, until the sound of the bell once again spurs them to fight each other again. The Holy Knight Friesia comes in, threatening the life of the shepherds, however Elizabeth steps in to protect one of them, heavily injuring herself in the process. It is then revealed that one of the young shepherds is actually Ruin, and that he has been fooling them all this time. As Elizabeth gets beaten up by Ruin, she manages to knock off the bell that is causing the hallucinations; Ruin goes to punish Elizabeth further for doing so, but Meliodas quickly comes to her aid, thus beginning Meliodas' battle with Ruin, whilst Diane faces off against Friesia. Both defeat their respective opponents, and the team continues their trek to Baste Dungeon. Elsewhere, despite having been pierced in the chest, Ban is able to overpower Jude, and takes him out. Meliodas and co. finally enter Baste Dungeon, although it is all a trap as Golgius locks them in with the Eternal Seal Spell. However, the reunion between Ban and Meliodas caused so much destruction that it completely destroyed the structure and disregarded the spell. Later that evening, the gang enjoys a meal courtesy of Dana, but an omen in the sky foretells of great disaster to befall Britannia soon.
