One of the main spin-offs of the Saint Seiya franchise, the manga Saintia Shô has just bowed out with the publication of the last volume in French. But the author has not yet quite finished with the protectors of Athena.

The conclusion of Saint Seiya Saintia Sho

While the sequel to the 3D series Knights of the Zodiac (originally launched on Netflix before currently continuing on Crunchyroll) persists in sullying the memory of the first manga adaptation Saint Seiya in animation, there are other fates that are tied around the work of Masami Kurumada . First pre-published in Champion RED magazine in Japan, manga Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho held on for eight long years before bowing out at the end of chapter 86 that we finally have the opportunity to discover in bound format in French version.

As the mangaka explains in a message published in the last bound volume of the series, by accepting the Saintia Shô project under the supervision of Masami Kurumada in early 2013, Chimaki Kuori was well aware of the magnitude of the challenge. who came to her. Completed in Japan in January 2022, the manga series Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho has finally just seen its sixteenth and last volume published in French by Kurokawa editions. The end of a spin-off full of qualities that we can only strongly advise you to discover if you haven’t already done so, now that the series is available in its entirety in French!


Is it really over for the Saintias?

Having reached its climax, the outcome of Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho is responsible for presenting the consequences of the awakening of the god Ares in the guise of an individual well known to fans of the series. The Golden Knights stand valiantly before him while Athena’s protectors are about to offer a final token of their faith to their goddess. Who will be able to rid the Earth of the discord of Eris? If you want to know more about “the Athena Ex-Resurrection” or the Sacred Robe of the Little Horsethe sixteenth and final volume of Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho comes to put an end to this whole story. Final? Not quite… Chimaki Kuori indeed seems to want to follow in the footsteps of Shiori Teshirogi, the author of Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, which had extended its manga through bonus stories published in the 16 volumes of “The Lost Canvas: Chronicles”. barely finished, the work of Chimaki Kuori has indeed already known since this summer a series of additional episodes baptized Saint Seiya Saintia Sho: Memories in the pages of Champion RED. Hoping that all this may one day allow the animated adaptation of Saintia Shô not to remain unfinished since its ten episodes only covered the very first part of the manga’s history.
