Saint Seiya Next Dimension Manga Ends Current Season (Updated)
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's eighth and ninth issues of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion announced this month that the current story "season" of Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades (Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - Meiō Shinwa) manga will end in the 10th issue on February 2. The season had entered its final arc in January 2016.
After finishing the manga's previous "season," Kurumada put the manga on hiatus in January 2014. The manga returned from hiatus in December 2015 (although Kurumada published special chapters for the series in June 2014 and and July 2015). The latest "season" commemorates the 30th anniversary of Saint Seiya.
Kurumada began serializing Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades in 2006. Kurumada published the original Saint Seiya manga from 1986 to 1990. The manga has inspired a number of television anime, OVAs, anime films, and spinoff manga. The Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō spinoff manga has an anime in the works.
Update: The tenth issue will announce on Thursday that the next season will begin this summer.
Headline fixed. Thanks, Sergorn.
