Greek mythology has been the theme of many shows, books, movies, anime, and whatnot, and we’ve all had our curiosities about it. Saint Seiya happens to be one of the finest pieces of work that is based on this theme.
The manga has characters from all over popular folklore, and we absolutely love this one! It is one diverse manga most popular for combining manga elements with mythical characters that too in the 80s!
The Saint Seiya: Next Dimension manga is finally out of its 3-year long hiatus and will release its latest chapter on June 3rd!
It will be resuming in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion’s Issue 27/2021.
Saint Seiya: Next Dimension – The Myth of Hades was launched in 2006 and straightaway made its way into fans’ hearts.
This manga is a part of the Saint Seiya franchise, which has released numerous anime, manga, video games, spin-offs, and much more.
Part of the reason for Next Dimension’s success is that it continues the story of the original Saint Seiya.
The manga has a different art style from its previous parts like Saint Seiya and Saint Seiya: Episode G (Assassin) which is somewhat refreshing and a nice twist to the classic.
The Next Dimension manga often goes on a hiatus, and this time it was a big one, due to mangaka Kurumada working on more than just one manga.
Saint Seiya is one huge franchise and the workload surely gets a lot when you’re the one creating the plot and illustrations for it all.
It has given us many spin-offs and anime based on that, and we fans still can’t get enough of it. Saint Seiya is what you can call a peculiar manga, way ahead of its time.
Nonetheless, to say, I am way too pumped up for Next Generations to resume!
