Saint Seiya

Show Summary

This guide is for the JAPANESE Version of the show. The US version can be found under KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC. (http://www.tv.com/shows/knights-of-the-zodiac/).

It has been said that when times of evil fill the world, Saints appear. Once upon a time a group of young men devoted themselves to the protection of Athena, Goddess of wisdom and war. Known as the Saints of Athena, these men were renowned for their ability to fight without weapons. It is said that their blows can break the sky apart and their kicks would crack the ground.

And now...

A new group of Saints have arisen. With all the power and courage of the Saints of old. But while there are 12 Saints of Athena, Saint Seiya focuses on the tale of Seiya, a young man sent to Greece to fight for the bronze armor of Pegasus, and for what reason, he knows not. Seiya believes that once he's won the armor, the bulk of the battle is over. Little does he know that his battles are only beginning. As he returns to Japan, he learns of a tournament between the Saints of Athena in which he's already been entered, much to his chagrin. Seiya refuses to fight, but is quickly convinced to do so by the devious host, Saori. Yet, Saori's intentions remain pure as she follows her lineage, and in the mere hosting of one tournament, she endeavors to draw out a great evil that will either fall to her Saints, or defeat them and rule the world.moreless

  • Saw this series when it first aired in Japan back in 1986, with no english subs! and I was hooked!

    Follow the series each week by going to new york city to a japanese video store ( were no one spoke english ) and purchased a VSH tape of a month worth of the cartoon. From Bloody start to the Bloody end ( 72 eps. of the first vol.) I was glued to my seat! this series, to me, was and still is the best of the anime best! From the bronze, silver, and gold cloth armor designs, to the plot line and story, this cartoon kicked ass! looking forward to seeing the new " canvas annime"





    Good stuff!

    Why they didn't make the rest of the T.V. chapters? After I bought the collection I found online a the complete T.V. series and of course of bought it right at that moment. It has the sanctuary, The Asgard, Poseidon 5 Saint Seiya movies including the last one which is the best movie and the one that last the most time. and 19 OVAS of the Hades. So I don't care if this company makes the rest of the collection. I already have it. I'm just waiting on the rest of the Hades series I know they will be 27 chapters. Stop waisting money with that company guys. get the real Knigths of the zodiac "Caballeros del Zodico" completaly from a different company that have all of the chapters.moreless

    theres something strange about this anime, it has some kind of unexplainable hold on me that no anime to date has ever matched. it might be the costumes, it might be the characters or even the storyline - but whatever captured my imagination as a child, still holds today. this is undoubtedly the B E S T S H O W E V E R !!!
