Subaru is present at the gathering of the Saints Shrine prelude to their entry into the war . Unlike the anime, it does not seem to be troubled at the sight of Athena.

Subaru's True Form
Subaru takes in the life force that is aborbed through Pallas and Athena's snake brace coil to revive his original form! Europa also reveals his true chronotector cloth that is much superiour than Titan's and Seiya's cloth and cosmo that is able to deflect their punches from his body.

In AstronomyEditThe Pleiades (/ˈplaɪ.ədiːz/ or /ˈpliː.ədiːz/), or Seven Sisters (Messier object 45 or M45), is an open star cluster containing middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky. The name Pleiades comes from Greek mythology; the celestial entity has several meanings in different cultures and traditions.
The Pleiades (/ˈplaɪ.ədiːz/ or /ˈpliːədiːz/; Ancient Greek: Πλειάδες [pleːádes], Modern [pliˈaðes]), companions of Artemis, were the seven daughters of the titan Atlas and the sea-nymph Pleione born on Mount Cyllene. They are the sisters of Calypso, Hyas, the Hyades, and the Hesperides. The Pleiades were nymphs in the train of Artemis, and together with the seven Hyades were called the Atlantides, Dodonides, or Nysiades, nursemaids and teachers to the infant Bacchus.
- Pleiades Impact (プレアデスインパクト, Pureadesu Inpakuto): Subaru channels his cosmo into is hands and throws shooting star punches, similar to the Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken
- Subaru's Steel Cloth is reminiscent of the appearance of the character Megaman from the Megaman Metaseries of games and media. note the upper red crystal piece upon his helmet, as well as the general color scheme, and mechanical nature of the steel cloth itself.
- According to Sky Cloth Shō (Omega), Marine Cloth Ushio (Omega) and Land Cloth Daichi (Omega), Subaru is a pride of the Steel Saints.
- This character has a strong resemblance to Ikki. It is also has the same face like Seiya and his armor has a similar aesthetic version of the first Pegasus Cloth of Seiya. Out of curiosity, the Bronze cloth bears some resemblance to the Pegasus, being Horse Minor (Equuleus), a constellation, similar to Pegasus. There is a hint is for Subaru as he appears on the poster next to Ikki, being able to have a relationship for the two, it is also strange that Subaru feels a great emotion and melancholy to see Ikki, even though he is unable to look in its eyes directly.
- Subaru is the fifth protagonist who becomes an antagonist when he transformed into Saturn. The first saint to become host was Andromeda Shun by becoming Hades, the second is Alone (TLC) to become the host of Hades in the XVIII century , the third is Pegasus Kōga to become the host of Abzu, and the fourth was Equuleus Kyōko of Saintia-Sho to become the host of Eris.
- He is the first Steel Saint to use an attack based on his cosmo. Pleiades Impact is a pun because Subaru's name is a Japanese name of the Pleiades, which is a constellation of seven stars.
- Eden and Subaru are shown to have a small rivalry. According to the mythology of the Pleiades, it was Orion who was assigned to hunt them down.
- When Subaru put on his friend Erna's Steel Cloth it was turquoise, but seconds later it was the navy blue of Subaru's cloth.
