    I liked the show when it was on t.v years ago. I might have to check it out. Animation looks bad though.

    Lowdown:

    In what is labeled an origin story, Mackenyu is starring as Seiya, a street orphan and the title hero of the franchise. When a mystical energy known as Cosmo awakens in him, Seiya embarks on a journey to conquer the ancient Greek armor of Pegasus and choose his side in a preternatural battle for the fate of Sienna (Iseman), a young girl who struggles to control her godly powers.
    Bean plays a mentor named Alman Kiddo, a man who recruits Seiya into the Knights order, which he founded when he discovered the reincarnated goddess. Tinoco is a man hired to kill the vulnerable goddess.

    I am really going to check this out. This anime came along at the height of my love for anime, back when I was mega obsessed with Sailor Moon and Ronin Warriors. Even at 14 I would play with my beast wars figures and reenact scenes or make stuff up with the characters from that show and Knights of the Zodiac was pretty great too.
