    Dont be fooled by Nostagia
    Everyone is being fooled by their own nostagia.
    The animation is lame, sound is regularly fair and story wise... its just ok.
    Instead of finishing the best thing that happened to Saint Seiya which was Lost Canvas, they come up with a nostalgic saga, just to grab some more money from the nostalgic fans.
    The best saga in every aspect still is Lost Canvas.

    Lost Canvas is a 5 star show..Soul of Gold is not
    Story-wise it's okay and it is always a great pleasure to follow the gold saints adventures.. Yet animation-wise it is quite poor. The characters sometimes look like they were drawn by monkeys at times. The voice-over for the gold saints is definitely C- compared to Lost Canvas or Hades arc.

    I really want to like it and it has a great potential.. what a letdown,

    Finally, the cosmos have answered the call!
    Been looking forward to the "next chapter" of the Saint Seiya series for a while, and judging by the first episode, this one does not disappoint! It's an original story that propels the heroes we know and love into a new world, against new enemies-- while keeping the animation style and action that we all fell in love with in the original series.
    I don't normally rate a series until it's ...

    Saint Seiya ressurected!
    My top 3 childhood anime brought back with believable story! This picks up directly from the main story arc. I'd like to say after the Hades arc and the plot is well put out since we see most the gold saints giving their lives to destroy the wailing wall in the Hades arc. This is not that Omega crap or Tenma one with predictable outcomes at the beginning of every episode! This is the real deal! ...

    The Gold Saints are back!
    And better than ever! The Gold Saints are my favorite part of the original Saint Seiya, so to have an anime just about them is like a Godsent, or should I say Athenasent. lol Furthermore, it features my favorite of the 12 Gold Saints, the Leo Gold Saint Aiolia! With a new God Cloth! This is definitely my favorite anime this season, and I look forward to watching the rest.

  • I wanted Saint Seiya, and I got it.
    Here is the thing: when it comes to Saint Seiya, I only really liked the original show.
    That is not to speak about the quality of its spin offs. I understand that Lost Canvas is by far a better constructed narrative. I can accept that. Still, it is not the Saint Seiya I love. Because the Saint Seiya I love has very specific flaws that gives it it's unique flavor.
    And oh god, does Soul of Gold ...

  • Saint Seiya is back!!!
    I loved the original and I love this. I always wanted to see more of the gold saints and I got my wish! This anime totally captures the feeling of the original series. I hated omega and lost canvas. IMO both were poor imitations of saint seiya, but this is a good successor to saint seiya. The worst part of this anime was that its only 13 episodes

  • Great watch. Story is ok, but not deep kind of slow at times.
    I've not seen the earlier series but after seeing this I'm quete intrigued.

    Got to say, its not the deepest story as in content and at some parts it feels like over extending a scene (as in dragon ball) but in the end still great watch.

    I don't know if the earlier series had the same thing going but the "Special" moves where pretty reppetetive.

    Concept etc is cool.

    Explode my cosmos!!!
    Saint Seiya has a special place in my heart. The animation was subpar, yes, and the plot was every bit as formulaic as you'd expect. It's a defiinite tribute to the classic series. But the 12 Gold Saints kicking ass together is nothing if not awesome
