Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō Anime Debuts in 2019

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official Twitter account for Toei Animation revealed on Thursday that its anime adaptation of Chimaki Kuori's Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō manga will debut in 2019.

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.
