Toei Animation has posted a couple of new footages for the upcoming Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary CG film on their official Youtube channel. The first footage focuses on the trademark finishing moves of the five Bronze Saints: Seiya’s Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, Shiryu’s Rozan Sho Ryu Ha, Hyouga’s Diamond Dust, Shun’s Nebula Chain, and Ikki’s Houyoku Tenshou. The second footage features the story’s heroine, Saori Kido/Athena, who is voiced by Momoiro Clover Z’s Ayaka Sasaki.
As indicated by the title, Saint Seiya: The Legend of Sanctuary’s story is based on the “Sanctuary Arc” from the original manga, which centers on the battle between the Bronze Saints and the Gold Saints in order to save Athena. The film is directed by Keiichi Sato (Tiger & Bunny, Asura) and written by Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny), with the original manga creator Kurumada as the executive producer. Saint Seiya: The Legend of Sanctuary is slated for release on June 21 in Japanese theaters.
