Saint Seiya also known as The Knights of Zodiac. Shonen written by Masami Kurumada.
There are so many well furnished pages about Saint Seiya and its whole saga on the internet that I don't believe I need to present it.
Saori Kido, reincarnation of Athena.
The Saints have sworn to defend the reincarnation of the Greek goddess Athena in her battle against the other Olympian gods who want to dominate Earth.
My favourite knights are :
Milo, Mū et Aiolia
Simply because at my parents house, we were Scorpio, Aries and Leo. At that thime, I didn't know I was forming with my mum and dad our very own Athena Exclamation! Wonderful stuff ! My interest grown stronger for them three...Escpecially for the Scorpio. Always been my favourite since the 80's.
To me, Saint Seiya is before all, legitimately and rightfully the Kurumanga and the Next Dimension one. Animated tv serie and Legend of Sanctuary are adaptations Legend.
Soul of Gold, will be kind of " spin-off" for me.
Why ? Because even though it has got roots within the Kurumanga, it is not a source from it as this "return" was not published in it.
