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 Through the Eternal Ices?
Through the Eternal Ices is a worldwide fanlist dedicated to the merciful and sentimental bronze Saint, Cygnus Hyoga, whose cloth was buried in the land of Eternal Ices.
Hyoga trained in Siberia, under the severe guidance of his master, and also Gold Saint, Aquarius Camus. In the anime, he was trained by a Silver Saint called Crystal whose character was a bit milder than Camus.
Near to this land, buried in the depth of the Arctic Ocean, was Hyoga’s mother, his weak point and reason for all his sentimentalism, that later on, to erase this emotional tide Camus sank the ship where Hyoga’s mum laid into the ocean abyss.
He compete for the Cygnus cloth with another boy, Isaac, of whom he became close friend. But, due to Hyoga’s selfishness, Isaac disappeared swept away by the strong current of the cold Arctic Ocean when he tried to save Hyoga from dying drowned.
Thus, Hyoga managed to destroy one of the ancient iced mountain where the cloth was buried and was proclaimed as the bronze Saint of Cygnus, protected by the sign of The Northern Cross.
However, Hyoga’s fate brought him into the most hardest situations as a Athena’s Saint: fighting and killing his beloved master and partner, Camus and Isaac.
When the Sanctuary Battle started, Hyoga was declared a rebel as well as the rest of his bronze partners. There, he had to struggle and fight hard against Gold Saints but the most important battle took place when the Cygnus Saint arrived to the Aquarius temple where his master, Camus was waiting for him.
Hyoga left his emotions out and he fought against his former master with all his passion and strength. In an epic battle, Hyoga’s cosmos was finally able to burn until reaching the 7th sense, and challenged Camus with the same technique Aurora Execution.
Camus died proud of his pupil when he saw that Hyoga has mastered the Absolute Zero.
In the anime, Hyoga and Camus met again during Hades battle, and his master was able to farewell him at the same he was fading in Hyoga’s arms.
The other epic battle was against the returned Isaac as a General Marina, to Hyoga’s shock. The man that stood in front of him was no longer the righteous one that Hyoga knew from his training days.
Hyoga instead of seeing him as rival, let all his emotions control him and sympathised offering his left eye as a way to compensate Isaac eye’s loss. This action infuriated the Kraken who challenged Hyoga to fight with all his power. After an intense back and forth battle, Hyoga, with the spirit of Camus guiding him, defeated Isaac with the Aurora Execution.
With his dying breath, Isaac commended Hyoga's power, and the two came back to being good friends once more.
After these two epic battles against his dearest friend and master, the highest point for Hyoga as a Saint was during Hades war, when he reached the Elysean Fields after defeating one the three Judges of Hell, Griffon Minos, and fought against one the twin Gods, Hypnos, ending victorious.
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.
