The Demon King arc is the eighteenth arc in the series, lasting from the 307th chapter to the 334th chapter.


With their curses broken, Meliodas and Elizabeth return to Liones along with the Sins but they soon find out that Elizabeth's curse has mysteriously reactivated and Meliodas realizes that the Demon King hasn't been destroyed, by taking Zeldris over as his new vessel to survive. To save his brother, Meliodas rushes to Lake Salisbury to stop his father once and for all, but can he stop him before he loses his younger brother forever?

Fights and Events


Meliodas and Elizabeth having been freed from their curses, return with the others to Liones where Bartra explains to his people that the Holy War has ended, at least for the time being and despite how much suffering there has been, can't give up on tomorrow with Slader and Simon at his side.
