Storyline

Seiya is an orphan child that was sent to the Sanctuary of Athena in Greece, where he underwent training to become one of the Saints of Athena. Years later, after gaining possession of the Pegasus Cloth, a mythical armor protected by said constellation, he returns to Japan and meets up with Saori Kido. Kido is the granddaughter of the late Mitsumasa Kido, the man that sent Seiya to Greece, separating him from his sister Seika. Seiya intends to find his sister who disappeared the day he left, but Saori makes a deal with him: if he competes in the Galaxian Wars and wins, she'll help him find Seika. The Galaxian Wars is a tournament organized by the Kido Fundation, in which the Bronze Saints, all of them orphans like Seiya that were sent to different parts of the world to train and earn their cloths, must fight each other, the prize being the Sagittarius Gold Cloth. Seiya agrees to participate just to be able to find his sister. However, the tournament is interrupted and the Sagittarius ... Written by Dama del Puente

Trivia

Ikki, the Phoenix Saint, is an exceptional Saint in many regards. Notwithstanding the fact that his Armor grants him virtual immortality and the fact that he's the first man ever to win the Phoenix Cloth, Ikki's a powerhouse among the other Bronze Saints. As the anime's first villain, he easily takes on the other 4 Bronze Saints at the same time; later his powers and abilities enable him to defeat Silver Saints with ease. He also is a psychologically complex character, scarred by a traumatic training but yet a loving and protective brother to Shun. His maturity and long term strategic choices put him at odds with the other, often hot-headed Bronze Saints. Even though he doesn't team up with the quartet, he still manages to show up at the right time and at the right place to save the day. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Spain and other countries of Latin America, the original release in the '90s had a different intro, with scenes from the movie "Abel" and a song in Spanish (which wasn't a translation of an original but instead a translation of the French intro from "Les Chevaliers du Zodiaque"). See more »

The coolest anime ever!
15 November 2003 | by daria84See all my reviews

I am totally addicted to Saint Seiya, there is so much adventure, action and everything here!! I especially like the old episodes, but still they're so cool! All the characters are very well done, each one with especial habilities and skills, and in every episode, something new and cool comes up, you just never know what will come next! I love their powers, for being a show from the 80's is quite impressive how they did it, and even nowadays, it's still very impressive.

it's about 5 (more like 4, Ikki shows up not very often) "saints" trained to serve and protect everything that represents good. They always face new adventures and keeps us in the edge of our seat.

Also special mention to the music.. wow the music is probably the very soul of Saint Seiya, it suits to every single ocation, a sad moment, a fight, a happy moment, etc.

Masami Kurumada es definitely a genius, and now with the new Hades OVAS coming, is definitely something to look forward.

Well if you want to see a good anime filled with action and entertainment, you can not miss this one! ***** out of *****
