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

What does Ecchi mean?

Ecchi or Etchi is often used in the context of manga and anime. The term ecchi is applied to anime or manga that has vague sexual content (such as skimpy clothing, partial or full nudity). In English ecchi can carry different connotations than allowed for by the original Japanese. The ecchi art style is loosely comparable to pin-up girl artwork, as well as to provocative fantasy and comic book art in the United States and other countries.

Lineage Dark Elf Cosplay

from 1713.com

Lineage is a Korean MMORPG series. Dark elves were once members of the light elves that were banished for practicing dark magic. They have opposing qualities and traits: light elves use white magic and are quick and agile, but lack offensive strength. Dark elves practice dark magic, have high offensive capabilities due to superior mental and physical strength, and are nearly as agile as the light elves. However, dark elves suffer from weak defensive abilities, and are more prone to being stunned.

As with every class (except Dwarves), the dark elves are separated into two classes: fighter and mystic, opening several avenues of play style. They notably wear fetish clothing-inspired outfits and reverr Shilen, the goddess of Death.
