followers Hypnos and Thanatos the Saints gain the strongest God Cloths and use them to aid Saori in defeating Hades However Seiya also sacrifices himself by receiving one of Hades attacks and the Saints return to Earth with his body Productionedit When Masami Kurumada was in the process of creating Saint Seiya he gave Seiya the name Rin at first since Kurumada was going to title his manga Ginga no Rin Rin of the Galaxy However as Kurumada continued developing his manga he decided to change the name to Seiya which was more fitting First he spelled the name with the kanji that meant Holy Arrow to relate it to Seiyas condition as a Saint but later decided to use the kanji that meant Star Arrow to emphasize the constellation and mythological motif Finally he changed his manga title as well to Saint Seiya once he fully developed the concept of the Saints Also Kurumada stated that one of the first ideas he conceived for Saint Seiya was the Pegasus Meteor Fist Since his manga was going to use the constellations as a very important and everpresent theme he wanted his protagonist to have a special move that would be like a shower of meteors 4 When Kurumada designed Seiyas likeness he was inspired by his character Ryūji Takane the protagonist of his hit manga Ring ni Kakero which he created 9 years before Seiya Most protagonists of Kurumadas works bear a resemblance to Ryūji as Kurumada subscribes to the revered Osamu Tezukas Star System a stable cast of characters technique The same process is done with almost all the other characters from the series 4 Mangaedit

complex plot and felt that animation designers Shingo Araki and Michi Himeno had worked magic with both the anime series and the films They also praised the grand soundtrack and director Shigeyasu
