The story takes place after the rebellion of Saga and features Saintia, an elite guard who has to protect Athena and Sanctuary from the invasion of the evil goddess Eris and her minions.
Saint Seiya was written by Kurumada Masami
from 1986 to 1990, and has since spawned multiple spinoff manga, TV anime series, OVAs, movies, and even stage musicals. The new manga will be drawn by Kuori Chimaki
, although the idea of having a girl as the protagonist came from Kurumada himself.
