Seiya returns to Japan with the Bronze cloth. Four years ago Seiya and a group of orphans were adopted by Mitsumasa Kido, a Japanese business man. The orphans were brutally trained for the sole purpose of becoming Saints and earning bronze Cloths from around the world. He was promised that if he acquired the Pegasus Cloth from Greece he would be reunited with his sister who was taken away from him as a child. Upon his return to the Kido mansion he learns that the old man has since died and the estate is now ran by his grand-daughter, Saori. With no leads to find his sister Seiya begrudgingly agrees to fight in Saori's Tournament. The contest is fought between 10 reunited orphans all of whom wear bronze Cloths and Seiya wins his first fight.
