Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō (Japanese: 聖闘士星矢・セインティア翔, Hepburn: Seinto Seiya - Seintia Shō), or simply Saintia Shō (Japanese: セインティア翔, Hepburn: Seintia Shō), is a manga series by Chimaki Kuori, a spin-off of the classic Saint Seiya manga created, written and illustrated by Masami Kurumada. Kuori is known by her work on the manga adaptation of the Gundam SEED anime and in the Kimi no Kaeru Bashō manga series.[2] Saintia Shō started its serialization on August 19, 2013 of Akita Shoten's Champion Red magazine.[3] North American manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment have announced that they have licensed the manga.[4] An original net animation produced by Toei Animation and animated by Gonzo premiered on December 10, 2018.


Set during the events of Saint Seiya. Saint Seiya - Saintia Shō follows the traditional central plot common to Kurumada's original work and its derivative works: Athena, the Greek goddess of justice and heroic endeavor, returns when evil consumes Earth, and battles antagonistic deities, the agents of evil, with the assistance of her army of warriors known as Saints, protected by their Cloths, battle armors that represent their guardian constellations. The main character in the series is a young female Saint named Shō, who protects Athena and her Sanctuary from the attack of Goddess of Discord, Eris. The series introduces a new class of female Saints, which are known as Saintia (聖闘少女セインティア, Seintia, kanji for "Holy Fighting Girls", also romanized as Saint-ia), Athena's personal maidens.


The series introduces new characters and features many from Kurumada's original manga and Next Dimension. Voice actors are provided when the character appeared in an accompanying drama CD series.
