As you can see, the Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho anime is set to premier in 2019 and will feature for the first time an all woman Zodiac team. The Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho manga takes place after the aftermath of the main arc in the Saint Seiya series. Unlike the original story of Seiya this will follow the story of “Sho” a Saintia.
Seven Seas Entertainment describes the series as:
In the wake of a space-wide civil war instigated by Saga–the Gemini Gold Saint–a new team of Saints comes together with the goal of protecting their goddess Athena. This first all-woman team of armored warriors, powered by the Zodiac, will use their cunning, strength, and compassion to defend their worlds and oppose their very destinies.
