Manga will continue with “Final Series Sequel” after hiatus
This year’s 28th issue of Akita Shoten‘s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine published on Thursday the final chapter of the “Final Series Prequel” of Masami Kurumada‘s Saint Seiya: Next Dimension – The Myth of Hades manga. The manga will continue with the “Final Series Sequel,” but is first going on hiatus. Akita Shoten will reveal when the manga will resume at a later date.
Kurumada has been serializing the manga since 2006, and Akita Shoten released the 14th compiled book volume on April 7. Kurumada previously stated in September 2022 that the manga’s “final series” would have 16 chapters.
Kurumada published the original Saint Seiya manga from 1986 to 1990. The manga has inspired a number of television anime, original video anime projects, anime films, and spinoff manga.
Knights of the Zodiac, the live-action Hollywood film based on the original manga, opened in Japan on April 28. The film is titled Saint Seiya: The Beginning in Japan. The film began screening in the U.S. on May 12.
