    wow this is really awesome
    In my Opinion this is the best anime i have seen so far, really excited its on Crunchyroll now :D, such a shame it does not support other subtitle or audio languages. The quality of the video is really good knowing that is from very long ago, cant wait too see the other seasons

    Classic anime, questionable quality here
    Saint Seiya is presented about as good as it'll get without some touch up, considering that its anime is from the 80s.

    Unfortunately the subtitles here are not stellar. I originally watched this series on some amalgamation of Chinese or French dvd subs and fan fixes, and the subs available here are around the same quality:
    "To reaches the Pope's chambers with Marin's help..."
    "There he find a ...

    Saint Seiya officially lands on US soil!
    This my friends is one of the most iconic animes (like for real this thing was as big as DBZ in Japan, Europe and Latin America) to never get air in the US because it was deemed "too bloody and violent." I guess those same critics never watch prime time shows (ohh the ironic right?).

    Saint Seiya is about a group of orphan sent to different locations around the world to train and compete for ...

    what a great anime :D
    this is my favorite anime. the animation is old-school, but the characters and the plot are amazing. i learned a ton from these characters, their will to protect Athena is great. you get to also learn a it about Greek mythology and constellations, which is pretty sick xD just watch it, if you really dont like the animation then i recommend Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas.

    Saint Seiya Is An Awesome Anime
    This series hasn't recieved the popularity that it deserves. This is one of the best animes that I have ever seen, and I can't wait until the other arcs in this series are uploaded to crunchy roll.
    The anime is and feels retro in the best way possible.

    A Vintage Mid 80s classic
    Back in the mid 80s through the mid 90s around the world (except in the US) Saint Seiya formed a holy anime trio alongside Dragonball and Sailor Moon. While attempts have been made to bring it to the US have occurred, most have failed. That being said in the last couple years the popularity in the States has grown. Which is good.

    So here's hoping CR can get the rights to the Asgard and ...

    Crunchyroll brings back a classic!
    I have been a fan of Saint Seiya for a very long time, and I am so glad to see that Crunchyroll has added this classic to their site. It takes a certain appreciation for old or classic anime to enjoy this one. But if you can make it through some of the 80's clichés, and sometimes choppy animation, then I think you can enjoy it. Especially if you can enjoy the Greek mythology and inspiration. While ...

    Favorite Anime of all time
    I'm extremely happy that CR got this! I grew up watching the series on spanish television and I loved it. This and DBZ were my cartoons. For it to be pretty old, I still can watch all the series over and over and enjoy how awesome it is. Can't wait till CR gets all of the series. Omega didn't do this series justice and i hope that doesn't stop people from watching this amazing series.

  • War & Peace, my Athena
    After watching a good amount of episodes, roughly 30 or so, I keep getting the impression that while mythology and artwork is well done; there are too many mistakes and as well, fails to give a very convincing message about its themes.

    I keep getting the impression that the overall moral of the story, with its ideas of recruiting minors to partake in almost suicidal training in order to become ...
