Sacred Saga Art Saint Seiya Card Deck





Saint Seiya also known as Knights of the Zodiac, is a manga and anime series about a group of five mystical warriors called the "Saints" (or "Knights") who have adopted various constellations as their guardian symbols.

The US "Knights of the Zodiac" version was heavily critized by fans of the series, due to the extensive amount of editing used to remove the violence, bloodshed, and religious themes (eg blood was colored blue and called sweat.

Sacred Saga is a Deck of cards painted and published by Saint Seiya fans. Sacred Saga contains 56 cards in total:

Spades: Theocracy (12 Olympus Gods+Athena as Spade A)
Hearts: Holy Comfort (12 Gold Saints+Aries Mu as Heart A)
Clubs: The Seduce of Sea (5 main Bronze Saints, 7 Marinas+Virgo Shaka as Club A)
Diamonds: Doom Star (12 Surplices+Aquarius Camus as Diamond A)
Jokers: Poseidon and Hades, plus 2 extra Pandora and Hades

Ah, I like this art. :) Reminds me of the people that did... Golden Angel.. me thinks? I think so because in Golden Angel, it was also a zodiac thing.. but with all women.

Ahgrhgh! xD I got pictures of that ECC photoshoot last Saturday, from one of the Nana Day attendees. Wait.. does that make sense?? >_> Of course, I couldn't make it, but I will this week. Anyway, replied on my C-box. :)

The Elderly said...

:)

The Elderly said...

Oh, well actually, sorry.. I can't find it either. xD My friend found information on it online... somewhere, but I have to ask her about it. I do have a gallery link though, from digik.net. Very cool stuff. :3

By the way, that site also has a celebrity gallery, artbooks, calendars, general images, cosplay, and game galleries.. so.. yeah, you're pretty much set. :) Um.. everything but figurines and in dept information. They most likely only have the artist name as information about whatever.. so for any other information, you may have to do some research.

Um.. the cosplay galleries, for reasons I don't know, are in the celebrity gallery and I think artbooks too. The games are with the anime, and the calendars are in the anime/game. Just letting you know because I was confused when I first visited the site.

Um, yeah. Enjoy~ :)

There s no serial called Golden Angel. That s just pictures of Saint Seiya s knights but in girl version. Maybe i make a mistake, but this serial doesn t exist at all. I don t understand how someone can talk about something he/she never have seen...

Elderly Gamer said...

Yep your right Anon, thanks for clearing up the confusion and taking the time to comment :)

Ah, hem...Yeah, sorry to have been a bit rude, but i didn t like someone compared the Golden Angel to Sacred Saga cause those cards are from the original serial Saint Seiya and are original goodies, not fanmade. ^^'

Elderly Gamer said...

Hi Anon :) I didn't find your comment rude, in fact I was delighted someone took the time to put us all right. The artwork is truly beautiful, anyone with a complete deck is a very fortunate person.

Hi hi !
My comment ? You mean the comment i was talking about ? I m not sure to understand, sorry :S
Yes, i wanted to post cause i miss those pictures : on my former computer i had all of them but i have broken it... Now, i have troubles to find it again. You will be disgusted cause there are 3 years, i have seen the 2 decks (gold and dark) for a very very low pride but i didn t take it. And now i regret, i m a fool TT_TT

Elderly Gamer said...

Hi Anon :)
Perhaps we both will be lucky enough to find ourselves a preowned deck, that would be sweet! I can dream :)

Anonymous said...

Hi !

By "preowned" you mean a second hand deck ? Cause me, i don t want a second hand one... ;_; I m sure that s still possible to find it in shops specialized in animation ;)

Elderly Gamer said...

Hiya :) Yes good point, but I'm a little too easy and I know I wouldn't turn down a preowned deck, dependant of course on the quality. Brand new would be the business!!

Dear Santa....
