A few Saint Seiya characters were anime only characters. One of the most interesting is Crystal Saint whose Armor design stood out (maybe because he might be a retired Saint whose Armor is not linked to any constellation) and who is Hyoga's Master in the anime. During the Battle of the Sanctuary, Hyoga reveals that his master's master is none other than Camus, the Aquarius Gold Saint. However, in the manga Hyoga's master is Camus. The manga canon about this relationship is endorsed from the Hades Arc anime on. See more »
Saint Seiya, no doubt, is the best Anime Japan has to offer. It is fast, exciting, and moving. The story line and the character are so real and deep that you'll be attached to them right away. The fierce and fast action is spetacular even using today's standards. But you really have to know the series first in order to enjoy more from the movie. The movie itself, for a first timer is still great, but there are missing details, which by knowing the series will help to fill them.
Great anime, watch it.
