The ongoing Saint Seiya Omega television anime series will spawn its own manga adaptation in the May issue of Kadokawa Shoten's KeroKero Ace magazine on March 26. The manga will cover the anime's new arc that is set to premiere this April.
The arc debuting in April will introduce new heroes who fight alongside the main character Kōga, as well as new enemies. Subaru is a Steel Cloth-wearing 12-year-old who encounters Kōga and the others. He is a hot-blooded boy prone to causing trouble and starting fights.
Pallas is a goddess with a deep past with Athena — dating back to the Age of Myth — as well as a strong hatred. Titan serves as the cold-blooded but loyal attendant of Pallas. Pallas commands Parasites, an army of warriors equipped with "Chronotector" and the ability to manipulate time. Similar to the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Saints, the Parasites have Third, Second, and First Class ranks.
In addition to the new characters, Kōga and the returning characters will have revised Cloth designs, new powers, and new abilities.
The anime sequel to Masami Kurumada's 1986-1990 mythological fantasy manga and Toei's subsequent 1986-1989 television anime premiered in Japan last April as the first Saint Seiya television anime in 23 years. Crunchyroll is streaming the series into several countries as it airs in Japan.
