The time has come for Hades and his 108 Spectres to awaken. For after 243 years, he is on a mission to start a Holy War and take Athena’s head, using fallen Gold Saints to do his bidding.

Story and Characters
Before I go onto the review part, I want to say for those who have not seen the original TV series, you will be unable to have a complete understanding to the significance of what goes on in this oav.
