Toei Preps New Saint Seiya Series


Toei Animation Europe has recently announced that they have teamed up with various SVOD and TV platforms across the continent in order to simulcast a new spin-off series from the Saint Seiya franchise, title Saint Seiya Saintia Sho.

Saint Seiya Saintia Sho is set after the events of Saint Seiya, and will address many of the questions left hanging by the original series. Namely: What were the gold saints and Athena really planning? The story is told from the point of view of the Saintias, a new cast of female characters.

“We are excited that Europeans viewers will join with Japan in experiencing the next chapter of Saint Seiya,” said Ryuji Kochi, President of Toei Animation Europe. “Our office is committed to Europe’s many Toei Animation fans. It was our goal from the start to make sure they had front row seats to Saint Seiya history by establishing partnerships with great broadcasting platforms.”

On December 10, Saint Seiya Saintia Sho’s launch will simulcast on SVOD platforms ADN (France and French-speaking territories), Wakanim (France, Germany and Russia) and Crunchyroll (EMEA). The series will also be available on TV through the anime-focused pay TV outlet Mangas (France and French-speaking territories). The special simulcast allows Europe to view the debut episode shortly after it airs in Japan, enabling fans to catch up with the Japanese audiences. Moving forward, episodes will air every Monday.
