Streaming service Crunchyroll revealed at Comic Con Experience 2022 a third season for the Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya original net anime on Thursday. Crunchyroll will stream the anime on their platform.

Produced by Toei Animation, the first season streamed in two six-episode parts worldwide on Netflix in July 2019 and January 2020, respectively. The second season, subtitled Battle for Sanctuary, premiered on July 31 on Crunchyroll.

The anime series is based on Masami Kurumada's action adventure manga, which was serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump from December 1985 to November 1990.

Synopsis
Time is running out! Only five hours remain before the god-killer arrow lodged in Athena’s chest will kill the goddess. The powerful Grand Master is the only one who can save her life, but to even reach the Grand Master’s chambers, Seiya and his fellow Bronze Knights must ascend Sanctuary and pass through all Twelve Houses, each temple guarded by a Gold Knight. Not everyone will complete the journey and reach the summit of Sanctuary where a shocking surprise awaits. (Source: Crunchyroll)

I agree. It looks awful. Why not make traditional animation?

even if i scored it low im still enjoying the story of this show so im glad they are making more seasons of it

the only complain i got is that the fight scenes have weak presentation even though 3DCG should be able to do decent enough fight scenes choreography as seen in its OP song

Nice, been waiting for this announcement, it was kinda a given since the last episode wasn't quite a season finale and just ends there like nothing.
They should at least cover all of Santuary arc, as is the best artc of Saint seiya.

Well fuck. Guess people will watch whatever garbage is shoved in front of them as long as it is readily available on a streaming platform. Beyond trash.

Dear god, my eyes. Also CR did not learn from Ex-Arm, the CG is of abysmal quality and in an era where good 3DCG does exist.

people are forgetting that anime is usually planned for a long time before its season 1 airs so its highly possible that this is at least planned to do all the sanctuary arc of Saint Seiya so it got nothing to do with it being watch enough by fans because here on MAL alone its not that popular show to begin with

cant say i enjoyed season 2 but somehow i still wanna watch this, dont expect anything good though, probably more rushed fights, attacks that lack impact an somehow looks visually less impressive than an anime from 80s

Indeed, you are absolutely right.

I'm pretty surprised. Maybe it'll adapt the whole manga after all.

Heck, it might do it faster than Sailor Moon Crystal.

thats true, but its not like people wanted this to happen. Crunchyroll has a bad habit of just throwing money to animated projects no one asked for and many times they turn out to be crap.
