Knights of the Zodiac – a milestone ad

TVTA is pleased to publish its 2000th vintage advert – Knights of the Zodiac, or as the title of this 1990 Italian advert translates I Cavalieri Dello Zodiaco. Knights of the Zodiac was a Japanese manga series entitled Saint Seiya, written and illustrated by Masami Kurumada and serialised between 1985 and 1990. It was also adapted into an anime TV series and feature films. Other merchandise included video games, CDs, and a Bandai-produced toy line.

I Cavalieri Dello Zodiaco. 1990. Italy.

 

Here is the English version opening theme for the anime series. ‘I ran’ performed by Bowling For Soup. EDIT 14/04/18 Big thanks to Best Stuffed Animals for correcting me that ‘I Ran’ is not the original theme to Saint Seiya. It is ‘Pegasus Fantasy’ which according to Wikipedia is by Japanese metal band Make-Up. I’ve included this version in the post after the Bowling For Soup fan video.
