Creation and Conception
When Kurumada designed Seiya's likeness, he was inspired by Ryūji Takane, the main character of his hit manga Ring ni Kakero, which he created 9 years before Seiya.

The same process is done with almost all the other characters from the series, as in all Kurumada's works.

Keeping creation at ease;
With a tendril for needle
