Toei Animation Europe has teamed up with SVOD and television platforms across the continent to simulcast the long-awaited debut of the new spin-off anime series Saint Seiya Saintia Sho.
On December 10, Saint Seiya Saintia Sho’s launch will simulcast on SVOD platforms ADN (France and French-speaking territories), Wakanim (France, Germany and Russia) and Crunchyroll (EMEA). The series will also be available on TV through the anime-focused pay TV outlet Mangas (France and French-speaking territories). The special simulcast allows Europe to view the debut episode shortly after it airs in Japan, enabling fans to catch up with the Japanese audiences. Moving forward, episodes will air every Monday.
“We are excited that Europeans viewers will join with Japan in experiencing the next chapter of Saint Seiya,” said Ryuji Kochi, President of Toei Animation Europe. “Our office is committed to Europe’s many Toei Animation fans. It was our goal from the start to make sure they had front row seats to Saint Seiya history by establishing partnerships with great broadcasting platforms.”
Saint Seiya Saintia Sho is set immediately after the conclusion of Saint Seiya and promises to address the burning question fans have speculated about for years: What were the Gold Saints and Athena truly up to? Told from the point of view of the Saintias, an exciting new cast of female characters, Saint Seiya Saintia Sho offers not only a memorable tribute to past adventures, but a new epic journey full of surprises.
