Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō Anime's Visual Unveiled
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The staff of the anime adaptation of Chimaki Kuori's Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō manga revealed a key visual for the anime on Tuesday.
Toei Animation is producing the anime.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
In the wake of a space-wide civil war instigated by Saga–the Gemini Gold Saint–a new team of Saints comes together with the goal of protecting their goddess Athena. This first all-woman team of armored warriors, powered by the Zodiac, will use their cunning, strength, and compassion to defend their worlds and oppose their very destinies.
The manga is set immediately after the main storyline's Sanctuary arc after the defeat of Gemini Saga from Masami Kurumada's original Saint Seiya manga, but before the Posieidon arc. However, whereas the original manga followed a boy named Seiya and other Saints who fight to protect the goddess Athena, the new series follows a female "Saintia" named Shō who fights evil deities to protect Athena.
The manga launched in Champion Red magazine in 2013. Akita Shoten published the manga's 10th compiled book volume on August 18. Seven Seas Entertainment will release the manga's first volume in English on February 6, 2018.
