Netflix Debuts Trailer for The CG Anime Series SAINT SEIYA: KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC

Saint Seiya is an anime beloved by many. In their quest to bring more anime to their service, Netflix is making a CG series based on the same concept. Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac is the full title, and I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of the animation. I’m sure over time I’ll warm up to it, much like I did for The Clone Wars, but my first reaction is to run.

Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac follows modern-day adventures of young warriors called “Knights”, who are sworn protectors of the reincarnated Greek goddess Athena. Each Knight wears a powerful armor based on their chosen zodiac constellation, and are called Knights of the Zodiac. They aid Athena in her battle against powerful Olympian gods who are bent on destroying the humankind.

There’s no word on when this series will premiere, but I imagine it can’t be too far behind since we’ve gotten a trailer. If you’re looking for something that looks a bit more traditional and is still set in a similar universe, the female-centric spin-off Saintia Sho is set to debut on Amazon Prime Video starting December 10.

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.
