So, who's familiar with Saint Seiya here?

Saint Seiya ('Knights Of The Zodiac' in USA) was a manga and then anime produced between 1986 and 1991 by Masami Kurumada and became a hit specially in Europe and Latin America; it tells a story of a group of Saints (knights) who must protect a girl named Saori Kido, who's in fact, Athena's reincarnation. These warriors have 'cloths' based on their protecting constellation.



I love Saint Seiya since earlier 94, specially because of the whole Greek Mythology thing - in the anime you also have Nordic Mythology, when they battle against warriors from Asgard! Very Happy - and it was one of the first animes/mangas I've ever read.

SS has some 'spin offs' which happen before the main story and now, they're about to release a comemorative anime series, in April 1st, to celebrate its 25 years:

Saint Seiya Omega, which happens 25 years after their last battle, with different Saints and, apparently with the apparition of the original Saints.



Masami Kurumada, the original author isn't involved in this project, although he is credited for it.

Curiosities:

Shingo Araki (The Rose Of Versailles, Cutie Honey, Devilman) was Saint Seiya's anime character designer.

Marco Albiero (now SM's character designer) became famous by making amazing fanarts of the characters - in special, yaoi fanarts!

The remake of the movie "Clash Of The Titans" has Saint Seiya as an inspiration, specially when it comes to the Olympiac Gods' cloths.

Damn, I think I wrote a lot here! :lolz:
So, who likes Saint Seiya here?

I've been following Omega.

The mangaka is not involved, and sometimes that shows, but I still think it's really good. I like the parallel's it draws and how the old cast still get's to show up here and there.

I like it. It has a lot of good points. As I said before, it's really cool when the old cast shows up, but it makes it so you don't have to know about Saint Seiya to enjoy it. Since Omega is modern, for anyone that hasn't seen or read the original, I would recommend it first so you get a feel for it without dealing with typical 80's shounen plot progression as well right off the bat.


I also recommend reading Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas. It's another work that isn't by the original mangaka, but it's very good and serves as a sort of prelude to the original.

That sounds cool especially the part where the cast from the Old show returns Smile, Do you know if the Anime has been translated into English yet and do you know where I can watch Saint Seiya Omega ???

Saint Seiya has been translated into english both officially and unofficially. The entire anime is quite long and has a couple of movies and OVA's to go along with it.


Saint Seiya Omega can be watched on CrunchyRoll, as they are subbing it in an official sense.

OMG, I haven't seen this topic here before!

So, a long time ago (aka 2005/2006), I used to RP as Chameleon June and as Megrez Alberich! I LOVE SAINT SEIYA!

Why didn't I see this thread earlier?
I remember watching the serie when I was like 10, but I got back into it last year! Haven't fully watched the anime yet, and I'm following the french aizoban release of the manga as it comes out. (Just started the hades arc!)

I really like this serie. I wouldn't be surprised if Takeuchi said somewhere she based the whole "planetary warriors" thingie on SS's "constellation warriors" systems. (Except I always found the whole "WOMEN CAN'T BE SAINT IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE MASK BECAUSE YOU CAN'T BE FEMININE IF YOU'RE A SAINT" thing complete bulshit but whatev.)

My favourite characters in this series were Shun, Mu, Queen Beryl Saori and Fisheye and Zoicite's son Aphrodite.
Haven't watched omega yet but I surely will once I'm done with the main serie. I'll have trouble not thinking about Cure Moonlight when I see Saori though x)" (Both SSO and Heartcatch Precure have the same art director. Both Yuri and Saori are long-purple-hair chicks.)

(Also, as the french version goes with "Knight" more than with "Saint", I'll tend to say "Knight" a lot. Sorry!)
