Masami Kurumada's original mythological fantasy manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1985 to 1990, and it has over 34 million copies in print worldwide. The manga 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 more than 80 countries.

Saint Seiya Omega, a sequel to the first anime, aired from April 2012 to March 2014. A decade after the last Saint Seiya film, 2004's Saint Seiya Tenkai-hen Jōsō ~Overture~, a new CG film directed by Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Ashura) opened last June.
