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

Although Mu states that only blood can revive a dead Cloth/Armor, there is one notable exception: the Phoenix Cloth. Just as its mythical namesake, this Armor can regenerate itself, even when reduced to ashes. Furthermore, it seems that it lends its regenerating powers to its bearer thus granting immortality to the Phoenix Bronze Saint. It's also interesting to note that, if Bronze Cloths are worn through the centuries by generations of young Saints, before Ikki , no man had either claimed, earned or worn the Phoenix Cloth, ever.

10 times better than Dragon Ball Z
19 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Well i've only seen this show in the Dominican Republic, I wonder why they didn't release it in North America, well this show is the best anime ever and it's a lot better than Dragon Ball Z because they have special powers instead of being from another planet and they fight gods from the Greek Mythology like Poseidon, Hades and everything.

If someday Saint Seiya is released in the USA i'm sure that everybody will like it and all the people will know that this show is a lot better than Dragon Ball Z and they say some things that are true like in one of the episodes that love and beautiful memories in the battlefield are useless, they're just ridiculous but love makes us stronger a lot of times.

The best Saint of all the 5 main characters which are the 5 most powerful saints is Ikki the Phoenix, he's the best and the strongest of all 5 of them and the eldest, Seiya is the main character, most people believe that he's annoying, and a lot of people say that Ikki's brother Andromeda Shun, is gay, that is right he is gay because he is calling for his brother the whole time when he is in major trouble.

When this show came out in the Dominican Republic, it was the number one kick ass show in the country and the best anime of all time before Rurouni Kenshin came to the Dominican Republic and everyone who was serious about Saint Seiya doing their homeworks earlier so they can go and watch the show like most children, teenagers and adults did when they went home from their school and work a lot earlier to go and watch Dragon Ball Z.

Lots of people in that country we're addicted to Saint Seiya, like I was addicted to that show. This show is the best animation but not as better as Rurouni Kenshin is, I give this show a big 10/10 and if it comes out in America it will be the second most popular anime in America.
