- Athena... Become the stepping stone for my glory!
- Her life only has a few hours left.
- I'm almost there...! Wait just a little longer!
- You're going to rip open the path where Athena will go forth, right? Then it should be fine as long as one of us gets there. Go, Seiya!
- If we don't protect Athena, who will? Long ago, this guy said that.
- Seiya will always light the path for us.
- Text: Wanting to protect
- You're so dumb... This power isn't for murdering those in the underworld. Isn't that right?
- Did you think... I was fighting... Alone!?
- Text: The legend of Seiya started from here
Toei Animation also began streaming the fourth special video from the film, "Even If I Fall, Even If I Fall …!" In the video, Seiya faces the possibility that he cannot protect Athena.
I will challenge you with all my might!
You are damn slow!
Leave here immediately.
How does it feel?
Your sword won't reach me!
Won't you learn without losing your life?
I can't protect Athena?
The film will adapt the popular Sanctuary arc from Masami Kurumada's original Saint Seiya mythological fantasy manga of "Bronze Saints vs. Gold Saints." The website and the trailer have the following quote from Kurumada: "The Seiya legend began here."
The voice cast includes:
Gō Inoue (Kuroko's Basketball, Tiger & Bunny) as Leo Aiolia
The official website also released a character design for Saori Kido:
Toei Animation confirmed in February 2011 that production on a new computer-animated film of Saint Seiya had been green-lit. Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Ashura), is helming the project, and Kurumada is credited as the original creator and chief production supervisor. (He also coined the film's title.) Tomohiro Suzuki, a scriptwriter for six episodes of Tiger & Bunny, is writing the screenplay.
The manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1985 to 1990, and it has 34.4 million copies in print worldwide. It quickly inspired a 1986 television anime series that was popular not only in Japan, but also in France, Italy, other parts of Europe, Brazil, other parts of South and Central America, and Asia. The anime aired in over 80 countries. It has been a decade since the last Saint Seiya film, 2004's Saint Seiya Tenkai-hen Jōsō ~Overture~.
