Did You Know?


A secondary character in this movie, one of the divine warriors, very much resembles the canonical Asgard warrior Fenrir, God Warrior of Alioth, although this name is never given to the character throughout the movie. A companion to this character is another divine warrior, reminiscent of Thor, God Warrior of Phecda, although in this case the resemblance is minor. See more »


When Shiryu faints into the water, the Rising Dragon on his back is facing to the left, but when it is seen fading close up, it is facing to the right. See more »

aka as Knigths of the zodiac
5 December 2007 | by viniciuscosta01See all my reviews

Hello this appears to be and ova a pretty common thing in japan where when some anime is skyrocketing in popularity with the fans and O.V.A might be made which it means that its not an series episode nor a full feature film with usually with about 90mim or so its just some sort of special treat for the fans sold in VHS or DVD nowadays its like a Micheal Scofield side adventure in DVD. Which in my opinion its pretty good so they don't have to rush the movie to be some summer blockbuster the is usually lame anyways- So don't be disappointed by the last opinion. If you are willing to see this you must be either a fan or someone interested in any way so i do recommend you have a go!

I am from Brazil and we had the "knights of zodiac" as it is called over there and i think that the reason that the last user was upset is the way they show the series in TV in a manner that can only describe as abusive to the viewer making me wait for months on end while they repeated half a season over and over.

So have fun but i recommend you see the series 1st otherwise will wont understand much this is not some batman movie that the origins of batman are explained every movie i used to watch this as a kid but this is most definitely not made for kids but fro teenagers and adults
