After the Saints' victory against Hades, Seiya is left wounded and motionless in a wheel chair with no possible chance of recovery. Athena's sister Artemis, the Virgin Goddess of the Moon and twin sister of Apollo, makes an elaborate proposal - to restore Seiya's physical health in exchange for the supremacy of Sanctuary. Athena accepts and Artemis and her "Knights of the Sky" swiftly take control of Sanctuary. Now Seiya and his fellow Bronze Saints combat the forces of Zeus to regain their homeland but it will not be so easy. Bronze Saints Hydra Ichi and Unicorn Jabu, and Silver Saint Ophiuchus Shaina have join forces with Artemis and Apollo.

Note: this is about the Heaven saga, the last part of Saint Seiya, so there are some spoilers of the previous sagas (but not for this movie), so please, have that in mind.

With the positive opinions the Hades Saga (chapter Sanctuary) received, Masami Kurumada, Saint Seiya's creator, finally got the OK to make the final stage of the series, that one that hadn't even been in the manga: the heaven part.

The first thing to keep in mind and that I want to highlight about this movie is the Animation that without a doubt is the best that Saint Seiya has shown in all its OVA and Series that I have seen before, all the colors and quite careful movements I think is a point not less to consider.
Now out of the visual it is practically regurlar / bad, the OST that was always a key piece in this title passed unnoticed, neither an Opening or Ending and the music during the combats seems to have been forgotten. The plot itself, at first it can read more

First half of the movie is extremely boring. The story most of the time is very abrupt, as if was skipping all the time, not that it matters because the series never had a super complicated story, but still it's annoying.

The music is almost nonexistent, it's as if they forgot completely that the movie should actually have some of it.

When the movie hits the Icarus vs Seiya part it slowly starts to build up read more
