Netflix describes the anime's story:
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. Each Knights wears a powerful armor based on their chosen zodiac constellation, and are called Knights of the Zodiac. They aid Athena in her battle against powerful Olympian gods who are bent on destroying the humankind.
Yoshiharu Ashino (Tweeny Witches, CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon) directed the series at Toei Animation. Eugene Son (Duel Masters, B-Legend! Battle Bedaman script writer) was the story editor and head writer. Terumi Nishii (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, Penguindrum) is designing the characters, and Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai manga creator, Summer Wars character designer) designed the armor.
English rock band The Struts performed the opening theme song "PEGASUS SEIYA," an English cover of Japanese band MAKE-UP's original theme song "Pegasus Fantasy" for the 1986 Saint Seiya anime. The Struts also contributed the ending theme song "SOMEBODY NEW."
