Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac


The 1st "Sea of Stars" Skin Design Contest of The Sanctuary

Jul 30, 2020

【The 1st "Sea of Stars" Skin Design Contest of The Sanctuary】


-243 year ago, in the last Holy War, it was linen robes, melodious flutes, and ancient windmills everywhere.

Now, I stand at the crossroad of time and space, dreaming a different world of saints.

243 year later, will the next Holy war be steam pipes, cyberpunk streets, or even virtual technology? 

When the Sanctuary’s skyscrapers can break through the cloud and watercrafts crowded in the Seven Oceans, one can travel from Underworld to Elysion in a blink of eye. 

When the real future arrives, how fascinating would that be?

So, what will our familiar friends look like in the future?


Please design a skin with the theme of "Future Fantasy" for Gemini Kanon!

Let us put on new skins when the new year comes and to celebrate the future


The sea of stars flows through the vibrant new world, inviting you to imagine with us!-
