Synopsis:

A few days after the battle against Hades, Athena is visited by her sister Artemis, who has come to her with tragic news: the Bronze Saints are to be punished by the Gods for having dared to confront them, Athena is to be relieved of her status as Guardian of Earth, and she is to be replaced by Artemis and her Saints. After having regained his consciousness, Seiya finds himself in a new Sanctuary under the leadership of Artemis – and he’s not the only one fighting against this divine injustice. Shiryu, Hyoga, Shun and Ikki have made up their minds to fight the Saints of Artemis and restore Athena to the throne.

Arion and Saint Seiya are both wonderful adventurous animes based on the Greco-Roman mythology, with similar animation. I'm glad I found Arion in this website as it is really rare, definitely not a masterpiece, but very entertaining.

Adolescence of Utena and Saint Seiya Overture share more than a few things, On the surface the closest similarity is the lush and magnificent visuals that will take your breath away. What Utena does with roses, Saint Seiya does here with water. Symbolism and ties to blood shown through roses in Utena are expressed in Saint Seiya with water. The unusual angles from which scenes are shot are another similarity. The non-linear storytelling style is similar in both and works as effectively both ways.
