Explanation:
I noticed that Jun's gluttony does not seem to be right. I thought it should be "donshoku"(貪食), but it seems that "donshoku" can also be pronounced "tanshoku." However it does use the same "貪" character. The "貧”above would make it poor or insufficient eating.

On the web there are various was of writing them.

    Gluttony boushoku(暴食)
Lust shikiyoku(色欲)
    Sloth taida(怠惰)

    Pride kouman 高慢、
Greed donyoku 貪欲、
Gluttony taishoku 大食、
Lust jouyoku 情欲、
Sloth taida 怠惰、
Envy shitto 嫉妬、
Wrath ikari 怒り

 Pride Ogori (驕り)
 Greed Gouyoku (強欲)
 Wrath Fundo (憤怒)
 Lust Shikiyoku (好色)
 Gluttony Boushoku (暴食)
 Envy Shitto (嫉妬)
 Sloth Taida (怠惰)

As you can see there is some disagreement on how to translate pride (Gouman, Kouman, Ogori), wrath (ikari, fundo), Gluttony (taishoku, boushoku, tanshoku) and Lust (shikiyoku, jouyoku).
The others seem to be pretty well fixed. I would go for the first set above but take your pick.

Jun's are almost okay save one Kanji, so especially if you are not interested in the Kanji, please feel free to award points to him. He is right to call them "Nanatu no Daizai (aslo Taizai)."
