Aphrodite threw a rose and poisoned Albiore, paralyzing him and leaving him vulnerable for Milo's killing blow. The avalanche ends, and the wolves desperately look for Fenrir while Shiryu emerges from the debris. Syd then arrives in Japan, and his target is Saori. Shun, Saori and Tatsumi hide themselves at a small house in the middle of the forest, in order to protect the Gold Cloth's helm. But, each House is guarded by a Gold Saint.
Back to the present, Ikki tells Seiya and the others the battle wasn't over because he was defeated. He realizes the Gold Saint could be an incarnation of Buddha. As Hyoga tried to see through Hägen's technique, he is continuously overpowered and knocked down, but still manage to stand up and asks for the Odin Sapphire. Death Mask hears Shunrei's prayer too and, fearing that Shiryu could find his way back to the living world again, decides to go himself to Sekishiki and destroy Shiryu once and for all. Seiya, Hyoga, Shiryu and Shun chases Ikki and his Black Saints through the city as they run away with the Gold Cloth. As the Saints get closer to the Valhalla Palace, Shiryu finally recovers from the fall. .
But Athena appears in the Dream World in order to save Sisyphos; Tenma and El Cid begin the fight anew to protect Athena, and succeed in removing Oneiros from the Dream World, taking the fight into the real world. The worst part is, the world is now in danger. Seiya attacks the crows that were taking Saori and she falls on the abyss. As he struggles against Alberich, Shiryu decides to remove his Cloth and shield in order to counterattack, since he has seen through the Amethyst Shield long ago. Alberich remembers that his family was left with the task of protecting the Odin representative on Earth, but since Hilda uncovered the God Robes, the Odin Sapphires were uncovered as well.
He recovers completely the Bronze Cloths and tells Seiya that they won't be able to defeat the Gold Saints unless they reach the essence of the cosmos, the Sevensenses. Tatsumi disagrees and flies to Kido Mansion, being captured by the Fire Saint and some soldiers from the Sanctuary. Suddenly, Aiolia appears and demands the Sagittarius Gold Cloth, but realizes that it's not in the Bronze Saints' possession. To learn more, see our. Unfortunately, Ikki is still at a disadvantage. Before Shiryu succumbs however, Black Dragon saves his life by touching the pressure point and stopping the bleeding. He then reveals to Shiryu his plan for world domination.
She says he has matured and has nothing left to teach him. The Black Saints run away with all the parts of the Cloth. Seiya arrives at the Sanctuary and is attacked by Shina and some soldiers. Shiryu fights Deathmask, but is quickly outmatched, and falls to the bottom of the lake. Jabu tries to stop Ikki but is quickly defeated. After the story, there is a vibrating sound all across the Sanctuary.
Ikki reaches the seventh sense and his cosmo becomes a energy wave that breaks through the roof of Virgo temple and falls down directly over Shaka. Anime-wise, you have all that plus the Asgard arc and by extension Soul of Gold which was completely made for the anime, the movies, including Tenkai-hen and Omega. Aiolia suddenly attacks Seiya with a light speed blow, telling him his suffering will soon end. We discover that Shura is the most loyal of all the gold saints to Athena, and he is the one who killed Aioros those many years ago, because he thought Aioros was the one who tried to kill Athena when she was a baby, Shura punishes Shiryu and has him near deaths door, when suddenly, Shiryu is spirityally guided by his mentor in China. Shiryu senses Hyoga is in danger and tries to find him.
Hyoga defeats the gunmen who forced the villagers to work and frees them. Seiya uses the Pegasus Rolling Crash against Gemini, but it isn't sufficient as Seiya's strength is running out. When Deathmask is about to unleash his technique, Sekishki, Mu appears, revealing himself to be the Aries Gold Saint. The battle is starting to heat up! Shaka restores Ikki's senses and his Cloth, and sends him to help Seiya. Meanwhile, Shiryu is able to climb up the ice cavern and return to the battlefield, thanks to his master's advice. Unfortunately, they reach outer space, with Shura saying they will turn into stardust and watch over Athena. Phoenix Ikki attacks his brother, Andromeda, without mercy.
Meanwhile, the eighth hour is up. Seiya goes to the mountain and goes through many challenges, reminding himself he is doing this for Shiryu. They swim to the island and need to climb a hill in order to move on. When Seiya wonders why, Aiolia simply hits him with an attack at the speed of light. Ohko was expelled by their master because of his violent nature, so he traveled around the world, defeating countless opponents and swore revenge on both Shiryu and his master.
