First OVA series: Sanctuary
Meiou Hades Juni Kyuu Hen (12 Temples)
These 13 episodes tell the events of the last manga series, first part.
Athena has born on the Earth to fight against Hades, King of the Underworld; the previous battles against Ares, Asgard and Poseidon were only secondary skirmishes. After 243 years from the last Holy War, Hades has awaken, too, and has given a new life to the Silver and Gold Saints who died during the battle of the 12 Temples.
Saga, Death Mask, Shura, Camus, Aphrodite and Sion (the old Pope) have 12 hours to pass through the 12 Temples and cut off Athena's head. They have to fight against the Gold Saints still loyal to Athena, such as Mur and Libra, who have always been peaceful since now, and Kanon, who joined Athena's army after his betrayal. Also the Bronze Saints join the war to help the Gold Saints, but have a secondary role, because Athena doesn't want them to risk thier lives.
After many battles, that involve also the Spectres (the real Hades's Saints), it comes out that Sion and the others (except for Death Mask and Aphrodite) have never betrayedn Athena: as a matter of facts, they have simulated to be evil only to reach Athena and tell her about the existence of her Holy Cloth.
At the end, Athena decides to suicide to reach Hades in the Underworld and beat him forever.
