Knights of the ZodiacTV, ep.114 (~24 min.), 1986
The cosmos is bound together by an incomprehensible web of strength, power and, some would even say, magic. And only to a select few may these forces be harnessed or ultimately controlled.
Seiya is mortal from Japan. He has been trained, he has excelled, and the time has now come to test his skills in battle to claim the sacred armor - the sacred armor that will change the order of the universe, the sacred armor that will earn his place in the cosmos, and that will establish his rank among the Saints.
Through a series of tournaments and trials, Seiya must not only defeat some of the most powerful fighters ever to step foot in the ring, but he must also defeat the demons within himself as well. Long live the Saints! Long live Saint Seiya!
Ages ago, the goddess Athena was served by fighters called Saints who channeled the power of the Cosmos within them. Now a youth named Seiya has trained to become a Saint himself by earning the mystical Cloth of Pegasus. He is joined by other Saints with Cloths of their own to fight for Athena.
In a world where Gods reincarnate themselves into the bodies of humans, Athena is the Guardian of Earth. Together with her 88 Saints, she must protect the Earth against other gods whose sole purpose is to take over her position and extend their realm; it has been so for thousands of years. In this age, Athena, along with her Bronze Saints Seiya, Shiryu, Ikki, Hyoga and Shun, will have to counter the evil plans of a traitor amongst her midst who rejects her identity and nominates himself as the sole lord of Athena’s Saints. Being the only ones behind the true Athena, Seiya and the others will have to battle their way through countless Saints to unmask this impostor.
