Netflix intends to dominate more than the production of series and films, taking over one of the classics of Shonen: Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac.
This particular CG version (Computer Graphic) takes the initiative to bring the action to a modern era, all relating the epic story of the 4 Silver Knights. Nevertheless some of these bold choices have shocked the inveterate fans of the shonen, indeed one of the protagonists, Shun, seen in the trailer as a woman is in the manga a man. Her long hair and pink armor can be misleading, but this choice of sex change is quite shocking and poses major problems of coherence in the story. Indeed, the knights women must wear a mask, something that this female version of Shun has failed to do.
However, this anime Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac is only released in summer 2019, leaving a lot of room for the American giant to satisfy both new and old fans. Hoping that it will be better off than the movie Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary. Find below the trailer.
