The Manga and Anime Origins




Saint Seiya is a manga series written and illustrated by Masami Kurumada. It was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1986 to 1990, and collected in 28 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. The manga tells the story of a group of young warriors called Saints, who protect the reincarnated goddess Athena from various enemies. The Saints wear special armors called Cloths, which are based on constellations and grant them superhuman abilities. The manga is divided into three main arcs: Sanctuary, Poseidon, and Hades.


The manga was adapted into an anime series by Toei Animation from 1986 to 1989, covering the first two arcs of the manga. The anime was broadcast on TV Asahi in Japan and was popular among children and teenagers. The anime also spawned several spin-off series, OVAs, and films. The most recent anime adaptation is Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac, a CGI remake produced by Netflix in 2019.

The Film's Reception and Future




Knights of the Zodiac was released in Japan on April 28, 2023, and in the United States on May 12. The film has received mostly negative reviews from critics and fans, who criticized the film's deviation from the source material, poor CGI, weak script, and lack of character development. The film has also been a box office flop, grossing only $6.9 million worldwide as of September 2, 2023 . The film has been labeled as one of the biggest failures of the year and a disappointment for the fans of Saint Seiya.


Despite the film's poor performance, Toei and Sony have not officially canceled the planned sequel, which was announced in 2021. The sequel is supposed to adapt the Poseidon arc of the manga, and introduce new characters such as Hyoga, Shiryu, Shun, and Ikki, who are Seiya's fellow Knights. However, given the film's low popularity and negative reception, it is unlikely that the sequel will be made anytime soon.


Knights of the Zodiac is currently available to rent or buy on Prime Video. However, fans of Saint Seiya may prefer to watch the original anime series or the Netflix remake instead .
