"Saint Seiya -Saintia Shou-" Anime Featured In New Visual

Gender-swap spin-off follows a class of female Saints

Masami Kurumada's mythology and a bit of pro-wrestling fight manga Saint Seiya (aka Knights of the Zodiac) launched in Shonen Jump on January 1, 1986. Before its 30th anniversary closed out, Champion Red announced plans to adapt Chimaki Kuori's gender-swap spin-off Saint Seiya -Saintia Shou-. Having teased an update back in July, this weekend's new issue featured a look at the anime's latest visual.


The previously announced Hollywood adaptation and Netflix CG series were also mentioned.


The premise is set up that after the Gold Saint Saga, a class of female Saints is brought in to protect Athena.
