About Saint Seiya
Saint Seiya by Masami Kurumada was first introduced on Weekly Shonen Jump (a weekly manga magazine by Shueisha) in December 1985. The next year in 1986, it became a TV anime series. The story that incorporates the elements of boys comic, asterism, and Greek mythology immediately gained popularity. Figures and other character related items have marked phenomenal sales.
