A few days after the battle against Hades, Athena is visited by her sister Artemis
, who has come to her with tragic news: the Bronze Saints are to be punished by the Gods for having dared to confront them, Athena is to be relieved of her status as Guardian of Earth, and she is to be replaced by Artemis
and her Saints. After having regained his consciousness, Seiya finds himself in a new Sanctuary under the leadership of Artemis
– and he’s not the only one fighting against this divine injustice. Shiryu, Hyoga, Shun and Ikki have made up their minds to fight the Saints of Artemis
and restore Athena to the throne.
