The third Saint Seiya movie. The longer, complex (yes, complex) and better of the original movies. This one was so badass that, in my country (and ton of others too), it actually was showed in cinemas. With this one, the anime road was paved definitely.

Bronze saints sedition ensues.

In short, Abel wants to rid of humanity as they are a vile & wicked species set on self-annihilation. To enforce his actions, Abel asks for the aid of his sister Saori to cleanse the planet of humanity and begin anew as read more
