The New Holy War arc is the seventeenth arc in the series, lasting from the 257th chapter to the 306th chapter.


Following Arthur's demise at the hands of Cusack, the Sins (minus Ban) who are led by Elizabeth, join forces with the Holy Knights and the Four Archangels to fight against the Demons. In a race to prevent Meliodas from absorbing the Commandments and becoming the new Demon King, the Sins must battle the remnants of the Commandments, including the rogue Estarossa who plans to take the Commandments for himself; while Ban journeys through Purgatory to find Meliodas' emotions and also finds a shocking surprise along the way.

The fight is taken straight to Camelot castle where Meliodas plans to reemerge as the new Demon King, but can the Sins stop him from achieving his goal or will Meliodas be lost to them forever?
