posted on by Karen Ressler

This year's 32nd issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion will announce on Thursday that Masami Kurumada (Saint Seiya) will begin a new manga series in the 33rd issue on July 16.

The work will be titled Ai no Jidai (Ichigoe Ichie) (Indigo Period: Once in a Lifetime). The story will be semi-autobiographical fiction.

In addition, the magazine will publish a new chapter of Kurumada's Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades on July 16.

Kurumada ended the latest "season" of the manga in January 2014 and put the manga on hiatus. He published a special chapter for the series in June 2014.

Kurumada began serializing Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades in 2006. The manga revolves around the villain Hades as he reminisces about his past life in the 18th century.
