Product description

KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC: VOL ONE

Amazon.com

Knights of the Zodiac is DIC's reworking of the anime series Saint Seiya (1986) for American television. Much of the violence has been excised: Seiya rips off an opponent's ear in Saint, and the audience sees it pulsating on the arena floor; Knights deletes the entire sequence. During battles, DIC colors the blood blue or purple in an unsuccessful attempt to disguise it. The actors on the Knights dub sound stiff and not very bright. The mystical underpinnings of the martial arts combat have also been simplified. In the original, Seiya's mentor Marin explains how all matter and energy originated in the Big Bang; in Knights, she mentions, "that same power that caused the universe to begin with a bang." Knights of the Zodiac may please Cartoon Network viewers, but it will infuriate anime purists. (Unrated, suitable for ages 10 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon
