It’s three new, yet somehow familiar faces joining the fray today.
Earlier today, the official Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō anime website updated with a new key visual, along with three new cast members. We break the details down below.
The image features profiles of Scorpio Milo, Leo Aiola, and Gemini Saga, against a dark background.
The series will add the following:
- Scorpio Milo: Toshihiko Seki
- Leo Aiolia: Hideyuki Tanaka
- Gemini Saga: Ryotaro Okiayu
All three cast members are reprising their roles as the “Gold Saints” from previous installments in the franchise.
Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō will launch in Japan in December, on the “Animax on PlayStation” app. Toei Animation is producing the series.
The series will star the following:
- Shōko: Aina Suzuki
- Kyōko: M.A.O
- Saori: Inori Minase
- Mii: Megumi Nakajima
Suzuki, M.A.O. and Minase are reprising their roles from previous drama CDs based on the franchise. Megumi Nakajima is replacing Pile, who played Mii in the CDs.
Chimaki Kuori’s Saint Seiya: Saintia Shō manga originally launched in the pages of Akita Shoten’s Champion Red magazine in August 2013. The series currently spans eleven compiled volumes, with the most recent hitting stores on February 20.
Seven Seas currently holds the rights to the manga in North America. They describe the title as:
In the wake of a space-wide civil war instigated by Saga–the Gemini Gold Saint–a new team of Saints comes together with the goal of protecting their goddess Athena. This first all-woman team of armored warriors, powered by the Zodiac, will use their cunning, strength, and compassion to defend their worlds and oppose their very destinies.
