Spinoff Manga Based on Saint Seiya Begins

Saint Seiya: Saintia Shou is the newest spinoff manga by the creator of the Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny The Edge franchise Chimaki Kuori. The story will differ from Masami Kurumada’s original manga because instead of the main male character Seiya, this one will follow a female warrior named Saintia and her fight to protect Athena.

The first chapter was released in the October issue of Champion RED magazine, published by Akita Shoten. The mangaka of this spinoff has also done the adaptations of Capcom’s Sengoku Basara games.
