posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 29th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion announced on Thursday that Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya: Next Dimension - The Myth of Hades manga will end its current season after next week's chapter. While the magazine did not say when the manga will return, it did specify that it is "this season" that has one chapter remaining.
Kurumada has been serializing the manga since 2006 and Akita Shoten released the 12th volume on May 8.
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 green-lit.
Viz Media published the original manga in English under the title Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō manga. ADV Films released Toei Animation's anime adaptation with an English dub under the title Knights of the Zodiac, and later released it unedited under the title Saint Seiya. New Video Group later also released the series on DVD.
