Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary now in theaters

CG-animated film Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary was released in Japan's theaters yesterday.

Saint Seiya is a legendary series from manga that was first published in 1986. This film is a remake of Sanctuary saga, with new storytelling, new character personalities, and redesigned saint armors (called Cloth). The serious atmosphere is toned down by some Hollywood-cartoony presentation. The armor transformation now looks more like Transformers. Nevertheless, this's a must-see for everyone. More trailers go here.

Due to its nature, Saint Seiya is made into a fighting game from time to time. The last one was Brave Soldiers (2013), and Ultimate Cosmo (2012) before that. Seiya is also playable in J-Star Victory Vs (2014).
