There are many wonderful, strange and downright "that’s-not-right" expressions of human, animal and vegetable sexuality on the Web. Boing Boing introduced me to yet another form of expression involving action figures, specifically Saint Seiya action figures. What is Saint Seiya? Wikipedia has the following explanation:
Saint Seiya (???????), also known as Knights of the Zodiac, is an
animemanga series about a group of five
mystical warriors called the "Saints" (or "Knights") who have adopted various constellations as their totems of power. and
They are given the task to protect Saori Kido (Sienna in the English censored adaptation), the reincarnation of Athena (the goddess of wisdom and war), and to fight against evil forces. It is based on the
manga series of the same title by Masami Kurumada. The animation
series by Toei Animation first premiered on Japan‘s TV Asahi on October 11, 1986.
