The Knights of the Zodiac in Italy

The Zodiac Knights is the anime series based on the manga Saint Seiya of Masami Kurumada. The manga was published in Italy first by Granata Press and then by Star Comics editions in various editions. Subsequent manga spin-offs and prequels are published by Planet Manga and J-POP.

The original anime consists of 114 episodes divided into three macrosaghe (Sanctuary, Asgard and Poseidon) of which we remember the saga is not present in the original manga. The series aired in Japan on TV Asahi from 1987 to 1990 and is famous for the gorgeous character design by the couple Shingō Araki and Michi Himeno. The last ten volumes of the manga have been adapted since 2002 into 31 titled episodes The Knights of the Zodiac – Saint Seiya – Hades also divided into three sagas Santuario (“Chapter Sanctuary”, episodes 1-13, produced in 2002), Inferno (“Meikai-Hen”, episodes 14-25, produced between 2005 and 2006), Elisio (“Elysion” , episodes 26-31, produced in 2008).

The Zodiac Knights arrive in Italy on March 26, 1990 on Odeon TV with the first 52 episodes, then moving on to Italia 7 to complete the series with the title The Return of the Knights of the Zodiac. From there then the reruns never really stopped moving from local to national televisions.

The series has been proposed in several home video editions by Yamato Video and Anime Factory.

Finally, remember that recently Netflix has produced a reboot series in computer graphics.
