Countdown site from Toei - SS related?
« on: October 18, 2013, 05:11:26 AM »
Not sure if mere speculation fits here, if not, please move this topic for the appropriated place, and sorry in advance.

http://ss-countdown.com/

According to the clock, the countdown will end in October 29.

Maybe this isn't even related to Saint Seiya, but who knows? The "SS" in web address may bring hope ;)

My guess is a trailer (or, more realistically, a teaser) for the CGI movie.
...
SQUEE!!

Some sites already shows the image of 12 symbols. People are already crazy speculating it's Olympians... ;)

This is the image I've seen going around the web...



Most of the Tweets on the sight are about Saint Seiya.

Hm, it could very well be the CGI movie
I have great hopes for it seeing how awesome captain harlock was.

But the meaning of the symbols beyond a countdown baffles me.


Silence is of great profit.
An abundance of speech profiteth nothing.

All the research below by Archange from SSPedia, rough translated from French into English: http://forum.saintseiyapedia.com/index.php/topic,3036.msg417056.html#msg417056

After some research in whois about the name of the site ss-countdown, I could see that the domain name was registered on August 29, 2013 by Toei.

Domain Handle: None
Domain Name: ss-countdown.com
Created On: 2013-08-29 07:25:23.0
Last Updated On: 2013-10-01 09:19:47.0
Expiration Date: 2014-08-29 07:25:23.0
Status: ACTIVE
Registrant Organization: Toei Corp,
Registrant Street1: 3-2-17 Ginza
Registrant Street2:
Registrant City: Chu-o-ku


In reverse search, we can see that Toei has registered three domain names that day (the whites are indicative for the length, it does not correspond to the exact number of letters)

s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 4.com 2013-08-29   GMO INTERNET, INC. DBA ONAMAE.COM
s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ n.com 2013-08-29   GMO INTERNET, INC. DBA ONAMAE.COM
e _ _ _ i.jp 2013-08-29   --


After some tests, s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 4.com gives http://saintseiya2014.com/ and whois confirms that it is the other address registered at the same time than ss-countdown via GMO INTERNET.

An index of more, with the clock and ss to be pretty sure that it is an announcement about Saint Seiya.

Those symbols are defiantly familiar. I know I have come across some of them before, but it may take a while of pouring through my books and utilizing my Google-fu to find an answer. I don't wanna jump and say it's SS for sure, but I will say it's a decent possibility.
