Beautiful movie.
30 June 2009 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

Not much to say. I love the movie.

If you haven't seen Saint Seiya, then off course u'll find this movie annoying and will make no sense at all.

But if you have seen the series (at least till Seiya and his friends come back from Asgard) this movie will touch you forever.

Following the line of the sagas, and just using couple of characters from the anime Shigeyasu Yamauchi makes this art piece from nowhere, which by the way, every time i see it, i have a flashback to my childhood...

Sweet times, beautiful times and a beautiful movie.
