Synopsis

Kido Saori is a young girl troubled by her mysterious powers. She is saved by Seiya from an assassin sent to kill her. Saori then learns she is the reincarnation of the Goddess Athena with Seiya being one of her 88 Saints. Upon learning of her destiny, she heads to the Sanctuary to wage war against its Pope.

Seiya, alongside fellow Bronze Saints Hyouga, Shiryuu, Shun, and Ikki must pass through the twelve Zodiac Temples in Athena's Sanctuary in twelve hours, in order to save their goddess Athena from imminent death. They must confront each of the twelve Gold Saints that guard each of the temples in order to reach the cure that will save Athena.

This movie is a re-imagination of the basic concept of Saint Seiya. It uses the Zodiac Temples Arc as a base to its plot. So, I'll consider it as an original work for the most part in this review, as I don't like taking something as a bad thing just because it isn't the same as the old one. The problem is, Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary has a big flaw in its concept: you can't fit this Arc in a single movie, no matter how hard you try.

Lot of concepts are left open because the movie doesn't have time to explain it to you. read more

As a huge fan of the original series of Saint Seiya, I was really expecting something incredible before watching it. But now that I think about it, when was the last time Toei made something good?

But let's get to the point, this movie isn't really faithful to the original story.
As expected from a 90-minutes movie, it skips a lot of content (only 5 fights against the gold saints), and needs to adds some bullshit to tie it together.
The movie is really fast-paced and in the end the story doesn't make much sense.
So, this movie isn't for read more

First off, let's get this out of the way, Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary isn't the greatest anime movie out there, and it isn't exactly the best SS movie either - but you could do a lot worse. What it IS, is another good addition to the Saint Seiya franchise.

The movie's greatest weakness is that it tries to condense a whole 50+ episode arc (not sure if it's that long, don't quote me on that, but it is pretty freaking long) into a 90 minute film, and that just makes the whole thing suffer from an unstable progression, a rushed plot, and untouched and read more

Saint Seiya : Legend of Sanctuary is a movie which related to the name with the same title, Saint Seiya.

Most of you must think that this movie will summarizes the anime series, but it wont' happen. This is the story which you will not find in the anime series though both of them has same characters.

The minus score of this movie just in the story. The art is well done, beautiful and so real. The voice actors work perfectly in making the dialogues so natural. The characters which same with the anime also great, in addition the elegant characters of the 12 Gold Saints read more

Recommendations

both movies are highly budgeted anime action CGI movies made by Toei animation studio, while Captain Harlock deals with the problem of overpopulation to sustain more life meanwhile Saint Seiya Legend of Sanctuary deals with greed and how to properly use great power for the benefit of more life
