Kido Saori is a young girl troubled by her mysterious powers. She is saved by Seiya from an assassin sent to kill her. Saori then learns she is the reincarnation of the Goddess Athena with Seiya being one of her 88 Saints. Upon learning of her destiny, she heads to the Sanctuary to wage war against its Pope. Seiya, alongside fellow Bronze Saints Hyouga, Shiryuu, Shun, and Ikki must pass through the twelve Zodiac Temples in Athena's Sanctuary in twelve hours, in order to save their goddess Athena from imminent death. They must confront each of the twelve Gold Saints that guard each of the temples in order to reach the cure that will save Athena
So I thought the plot for this one was very good and was very different from any of the Saint Seiya that I have watched so far. Had a good twist in even though you clearly already knew who the big bad was. Animation in this anime was fantastic! Even though this is a heavy CGI driven anime and not your classic style, it was very well done, everything ran smoothly and looked great. From battle scenes to the background it was all beautiful. The sound in this one was well done as well. It was crisp and clean throughout the entire movie. Music wise it could have been more, especially during the battle scenes. End credits theme was a good song to listen to. Character interactions I felt were kinda forced, especially the interactions between the Saints and Athena. It was a “We are going to protect you and you can deal with it.” situation, without any proper introductions, I mean you had some time before the next attack. =-P Overall this was a spectacular movie to and would recommend this one to anybody.
