Saint Seiya: Next Dimension Manga to Return Next Spring With New Season
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 47th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion published the final chapter of the latest arc of Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades on Thursday. The manga will go on hiatus and return with a new season "around next spring."
The magazine also revealed that details on Kurumada's new "special project" will run in the January issue of Champion RED on November 19. Kurumada announced last week that he is preparing a "surprising" new project.
Kurumada launched the latest series in September. The manga had previously been on hiatus between seasons since February. Kurumada has been serializing Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades since 2006 and Akita Shoten released the 11th volume (pictured right) on September 7.
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. Netflix announced a new CG anime based on the original manga in August, and the Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō spinoff manga also has an anime in the works. A live-action Hollywood film has also been greenlit.
