Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya follows modern day adventures of young warriors called "Knights", who are sworn protectors of the reincarnated Greek goddess Athena.

They aid Athena in her battle against powerful Olympian gods who are bent on destroying the humankind.

Battle Bedaman script writer) is the story editor and head writer.
