They can read, as was shown in the first two movies and the sanctuary arc (they can read Greek)

I forgot about those parts. ^^;;  I wonder if they learned anything else, or if they're stuck with what they managed to pick up during their training.

Shiryu's probably got the best education of the lot, and Ikki the worst, but I'm sure they all have rudimentary skills.

i can't imagine athena who is the goddes of wisdom to allow her saints to be illiterate and so, i'm pretty sure they can read and write. also, they need to learn about the constellations and their legends so they probably read a book or two ;D

You have a point there.
They always seem to know a lot.
Like, in the Hades arc Shiryu and Hyoga automatically know which kind of sinners are being punished in the hell they're in at the moment (even though Hyoga is christian and Shiryu budhist, so they're not really supposed to know greek mythology...)
I would like to see Seiya make lunch are something :).

XD  Actually, Seiya is playing a guitar in one episode.   Where he found the time to learn how to do that, I don't know.  You'd think he would have been too busy training.

Saints in training also have lives too i suppose.  I mean, they can't just train 24 hours.

Well, in episode 10, Seiya even did household chores like vacuuming and at taking care of his laundry:





And actually, I think that the Saints will be at least taught Greek (that should be the lingua franca among the Saints if they serve Athena), and they'd probably have knowledge of spoken Japanese. Hyoga might be the one who is least capable of Japanese, I'd say, as he spent maybe a year or so at the orphanage/Graude Foundation until he was sent to Siberia - actually I think Hyoga would probably be fluent in Russian and Greek and only marginally in Japanese, at least where the writing is concerned. I'm a bit curious who taught the boys writing in Latin letters, especially Seiya as Marin was Japanese, too, and he was sent to Greece when he was about 7.

(In my fanfics this problem is addressed, by the way - I have one character who is a teacher at Sanctuary and who teaches the Saints reading and writing in Old+Modern Greek, history, mythology and the stuff ^_^)

I don't think it's a stretch to say Marin taught him all that + domestic housework (she probably made him do most of that anyways)

Well, if Marin taught him, she would have been able to write in Latin letters, too. As she was from Japan originally and must have been sent to Greece when she was little, then it would be more logical to me if she was able to read and write Greek, and *maybe* Japanese (it takes quite a while to be proficient in Japanese writing, even when children seem to start in the kindergarden there already, IIRC)

Which means her master taught her the latin lettering, though when you put it that way, maybe she can't even SPEAK Japanese very well anymore - obviously enough to communicate with Seyia, but she probably taught him Greek VERY QUICKLY.


Now here's the real conundrum - how the hell did Camus talk to Isaac and Hyoga at the same time until they both learned Greek? Camus is French, Hyoga's a Russian, and Isaac is from....sweden, I think?

One typical thing about anime/manga: EVERYONE speaks Japanese :).

well, that's only in the anime unfortunately. but i would love to download an mp3/midi of that song Seiya played on his guitar((it was sweet!)

but I wonder (what Shiryu-dono said) if Seiya's cooking would b good...probably i mean, he lives by himself in the anime (dockhouse). but i have to admit, it would be funny if gold saints couldn't read
Saga: hey Milo
Milo: what is it Saga?
Saga: can you read this for me?
Milo: i would if i could
Saga and Milo: sigh, let's just get the Master to read it aloud

Major Scoop!

I have a confirmation that Saga is a parttime model.  Here you can see him posing for Coco Channel and CK Eternity.

This one is for the ladies......:)
