Watch Saint Seiya

Saint Seiya is a episode anime adaptation which closely follows the manga (Japanese comic book) of the same name across the span of over 100 episodes and three major story arcs; Sanctuary, Asgard (only told within the anime), and Poseidon. The series was produced by Toei Animation and was directed by Kozo Morishita and then by Kazuhito Kikuchi (during the "Asgard" and "Poseidon" story arcs later on).

The Sanctuary story arc involves a Japanese youth, named Seiya, tasked with obtaining the "Pegasus Bronze Cloth" from Greece's Sanctuary. This cloth is actually a suit of body armor worn by the 88 warrior "Saints" of the goddess, Athena. When Seiya obtains his cloth, it awakens his inner spiritual essence; a force hearkening back to the Big Bang. Seiya quickly assumes title of Pegasus Saint and enters into a tournament, known as the Galaxian Wars, where all Bronze Saints fight for the supremely powerful Sagittarius Gold Cloth. If Seiya wins the tournament, he will not only win the Cloth, but also be able to search for his missing sister.

While the Galaxian Wars seem to be the first major conflict, the actual trouble begins when the Phoenix Bronze Saint, named Ikki, appears. Ikki seeks to stop these contests of champions, where every contender is an orphan from a massive catastrophe prior to the series' beginning, by separating the Sagittarius Gold Cloth armor into pieces. Seiya and a few other Saint friends take Ikki on in a dramatic battle.

Eventually Seiya and his friends Hyoga, Shiryu, and Shun, defeat Ikki. Worried that other Saints might rebel against Sanctuary, the Sanctuary's Pope sends a squadron of Silver Saints to eliminate the Bronze Saints before they become too powerful. The Sanctuary arc concludes with Seiya and friends traveling across the globe to investigate twelve temples of the Zodiac, ultimately to save his still-living sister from Saga, the Gold Saint Gemini.

When the series jumped to North American shores, under license by DIC Entertainment, it was renamed Knights of the Zodiac. Only the first 32 episodes made it to air, with all content, like blood, heavily edited.

Cygnus volunteers to take care of it, to allow Seiya and Shun advance. Next, the two saints come to a wide opening in the rock and they must use Shun's chain to swing across, but the chain gives out and the two falls to the rocks below.
