i dont get the fact that the previous storyline of Saint Seiya was never really finished, at least in episodes. Yet now there is a whole new Omega storyline starting, disregarding how good it looks to be, which is only loosely connected to the original. Finish one story before starting another!

I said this and then researched the show on the other anime site i use for a couple shows, like Onepiece, and I stand corrected.

I couldn't really get into You and Me during the first season. It was just a little too plain slice-of-life for me. So I don't think I'm going to watch the second season, but it's good that it's here for others who do enjoy it.

Does Saint Seiya Omega stand alone OK, or does it rely on knowledge of previous/other Saint Seiya series? I haven't watched Saint Seiya stuff before, so I'm not sure if I'm going to be kind of lost with this. But if it's essentially a separate story that I'll be able to get OK, I'll probably add it to my queue. Can anyone clarify for me? Thanks.

Well, while it does reference the older series a bit (being a non canon sequel), so far, it seems to be mostly self contained. The villain is brand new, and it's going to primarily star new characters (though, from what I understand, some of the older characters will play a role in the series at different points).

I think you might be able to get most of it fine. It does re-explain some old concepts from the original series, so you're not tossed right into the deep end. That said, it's only been one episode thus far...but this is clearly also trying to grab a new audience alongside whoever they can get from the old, so they won't take it too far in terms of expecting you to know the classic plotline.

So yeah, I say go for it. You might really enjoy it.

Thanks for the info. I guess this is worth a shot then. And if for some reason it does get too confusing or whatever, I can always stop and maybe come back to it in the future after watching some other Saint Seiya series.

I'm surprised CR hasn't updated the initial message with the simulcast time for Saint Seiya Omega. I have to wonder how many people noticed the first episode was posted on Wednesday (April 4, 2012).

Anime News Network has entries for French, Spanish and Portuguese countries (language, that is), but nothing for Italy. It wouldn't be surprising if TV Azteca in Mexico broadcasts it, for example, since from a quick glance through ANN Encyclopedia entries, TV Azteca seem to have broadcast not only the original series but also every movie and OVA made since then.


The manga of Lost Canvas is published in Italy too (See the page of the publisher... )
I Suppose that ANN is not updated

On the opposite, the anime is not licensed.

I was referring to the anime ~ ANN has distinct entries for anime and manga, with cross links between the two when one is based on the other.

Licensing of the manga does not interfere with streaming licensing ~ the rights of the mangaka (or other original creator) are represented in the production committee, and the mangaka has a legal veto in that committee ... but most mangaka are too busy to attend the meetings, and their interests are represented by a representative (often the publisher).

However, overseas publishers licensing manga do not get veto rights on a related anime, so a manga being licensed is not an obstacle to Crunchyroll getting the streaming rights in that country.
