Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas
Posted 5/3/15
I'm pretty freakishly picky of the anime I watch; but I have to say I'm shocked that so many have negatively reviewed this one! Granted, it's got that Rurouni Kenshin explain-moves-as-they-happen-battle-talk, but that's part and parcel with some, I think. Does anyone else think this was a beautifully illustrated and wonderfully voiced anime like I do? Come on, there HAS to be some lovers of this gorgeous anime that made my heart lurch with excruciating pain when I found out that there would be no more than 26 episodes!!

I really love this show, even more than the "original" series in some aspects! And the Lost Canvas fandom is not as small as what you may think... I'm disappointed TMS didn't make a third season, but from what I remember BD/DVD sales were really low. If you're curious as to what happens next go read the manga, which ended a couple of years ago

I am reading them on the posts for the episodes themselves and also just generally around other boards, but a lot of negativity where you watch-and-post (which to me is kinda odd because I would think you'd watch them because you like them, lol).

I've see the original series...I have to say, The Lost Canvas is definitely my fav and I"m not too into the newest one that came out either. They don't seem as illustrious as The Lost Canvas, I must admit. Being such a huge fan of Greek Mythology, I was so surprised at Hypnos and Thanatos. Those two were just....wow...AWESOME. When Alone is completely suppressed though and you see Hades, I just couldn't get over the sheer magnitude of power with which they endowed the character! Plus I now want to cosplay Hades in that most FABULOUS robe!!! I was geeking out about the outfits all throughout the episodes, haha.
Regarding the voice-overs, what did you guys think on that? Personally, I loved most of them but as much as do love the character, Tenma got a 'wee bit' on my nerves sometimes. Still love him, though.
