Crunchyroll has announced the first of two new things today in their Winter 2011 bonanza of anime goodness. First up is that they'll be getting the first season of Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas and the second season will be available on the same day it becomes available in Japan. They'll be launching this series in February 2011.
Plot Summary: The "Holy War," a battle fought between the Goddess Athena and the Underworld King Hades, has been taking place since the age of legends. This story takes place in the 18th century - far before the era of "Saint Seiya." It is a new story involving the Pegasus Saints, the Underworld King Hades, and the Goddess Athena! When Hades finishes his giant painting that covers the sky, "The Lost Canvas," it is said that all lives on Earth will be lost. Tenma, who became a Pegasus Saint, wishes to stop his best friend Alone, who was chosen to become a vessel for Hades. Look out for him as he heads for Hades' castle!
Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas will be available in United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland
