In the times of myths… There were young boys who were in charge of protecting the Goddess Athena. These boys who were called the Saints of Athena, were said to have tremendous power. Their fists would crack the sky and their kicks were powerful enough to cut through the earth.
Mitsumasa Kido of the Grand Foundation held a strong interest in these Saints and sent over 100 young boys to dangerous places all over the world to train them to become Saints. 6 years later, 10 boys who survived the severe training came back to Japan and brought back the official proof of a Saint the “Cloth”.
Saori, the granddaughter of Mitsumasa, takes on Mitsumasa’s will and decides to hold a championship tournament called the Galaxian Wars to have the Saints fight for the greatest symbol of the Saints the “Gold Cloth”.
