What's a Fanlisting?

A fanlisting is a web clique that lists fans of a particular subject. Unlike most web cliques, a person does not need a web site in order to join. Fans from around the world submit their information to their approved fanlisting and they are then listed to show their love for the subject. (The Anime Fanlisting FAQ).

What's Redemption?

Redemption is a worldwide fanlist dedicated to Kanon, one of the most interesting character from animanga Saint Seiya, Knights of the Zodiac, that was able to overcome adversities thanks to his fighting strength and twisted mind.

Kanon is the twin brother of the guardian of the 3rd house of the Zodiac, Gemini Saga. He was dismissed to a second place, living always under the shadow of his twin, since there could only been one Gemini Saint.

Nevertheless, his evilness was too strong letting the ambition to control him. So, he tried to be even more powerful than Gods and desired to rule the world next to his twin, since he was conscious about Sagaís dualism.

He tried to let Sagaís evil side dominate his twin completely and that is why Kanon ended up locked in Sounion cape by his twin brother.

Far from dying, he survived inside this cave until the day he found Poseidonís trident, that was sealed there by Athena. He broke the seal and was sucked up by a whirlpool landing into the Sea God Sanctuary.

Once there, he was able to trick Poseidon proclaiming himself as Sea Dragon, one of the Marinas General. He traced a flawless plan by which the rest of Poseidon generals could die alongside Athenaís Saints and Poseidonís soul could never wake up if his bearer, Julian Solo, died in this war too.

But his plans came to light and ended up saving Athena from dying, covering her with his body when Poseidon threw his trident on her, after knowing that she had helped him to survive in Sounion. This is similar to Saga reaction when Athenaís sacred stick hit his chest.

However, he stayed alive and was redeemed by the Goddess allowing him to fight by her side against Hadesí army as Gemini Saint, replacing in this way his dead twin. But to confirm Kanon true intentions, he was subjected to Miloís attack, being saved by Antares at the end. In this way, Milo accepted Kanon as a Gold Saint.

So the once known as an evil traitor turned into a redeemed ally for Athena and the rest of Gold Saints. Kanonís redemption was to give Gemini cloth to his twin in order to destroy the Lamentís Wall to save Athena and defeat one of the most powerful judges of hell, Wyvern Radamanthys.

What's Saint Seiya?

Saint Seiya, also known as Knights of the Zodiac, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Masami Kurumada and serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1986 to 1991, and adapted into an anime TV series by Toei Animation from 1986 to 1989.

The story follows five mystical warriors called the "Saints" (or "Knights") who fight wearing sacred armors named "Cloths" which designs derive from the various constellations the characters have adopted as their guardian symbols. These Saints have sworn to defend the reincarnation of the Greek goddess Athena in her battle against the other Olympian gods who want to dominate Earth.

Both the anime and manga were very successful in Japan and several European countries but neither of them were translated in English until 2003. The anime series won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize in 1987 and four animated feature films were even shown in Japanese theaters. However the anime was cancelled and left unfinished in 1989. In 2002, Toei Animation continued the anime in the form of various OVA series (the final one ended in 2008), in order to adapt the remaining manga story arcs, and following this revival of the franchise, a fifth film was screened in 2004.
