Wait what? If it takes place during the original timeline, why does the main character look like Seiya's copy and why don't they wear masks?

And I wonder how much quality it's going to have considering that the last spin off series that only had, what, 15 episodes(?), looked worse than the entire Hades Arc.

I fully expected the Gold Saints' regular voice actors (as of the Hades OVAs) to return for Saintia Shō. What I'm really curious about is the staff, particularly the character designer.

It starts shortly before the Galaxian Wars with the core story taking place after the Junikyû arc while the Bronze Saints are in a coma.

The main character is Shoko, Equuleus Saintia, and she doesn't wear a mask because she is a Saintia, not a woman Saint.

Great news, now awaiting the returning of the voice that defined the franchise for me. Toru Furuya as Seiya ! Smile

VERY doubtful,most likely it will be Masakazu Morita again.Then again,they hardly care about consistency with the voices in this franchise.They are getting the Gold Saints' VAs back but why are they giving Saori ANOTHER new voice-actress?That's her fifth one already!
