Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas Gaiden provides us short stories of the gold saints, mostly of their stories are from before the Holy War, or from while they were training to be the gold saints, and also some of them are events from after the War.

Another thing that might call your attention read more

For fans who read and liked the Lost Canvas, this manga is very important, because it shows a side of history which we not have seen. You should try to read it, if you would like to know more about the past of Golden Saints.

Firstly, each volume will be with each one of Golden Saint. I believe in 12 volumes initially....
Alfabica is the first....his past with his master, his pains, conflicts and a mission as Athena's Knight, before the events in Lost Canvas original.

Is very curious discover how was read more
