  • Anime If You Like Epic Fights
    Remember that episode of Yugioh, where Valon used his awesome Armor cards against Joey with his red-white armor? So imagine that but expanded upon into 12 episodes rather than 2 or 3.

    This anime is literally one big battle royale between the Gold Saints of Athena and the God Warriors of Odin. Like your everyday "VS" anime where these two groups of people go at it non-stop until the very end ...

  • 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

    the Gold Saints made me do this
    Yes, the animation and drawings were disappointing and sometimes appalling, and yes the story was very action-heavy and basic. But I was happy watching every second of this just because they're the original Gold Saints lol. Every second adds a bit to their personalities, which are still somewhat obscure in an interesting way. There were some nice moments of interaction, and they actually worked ...

    Breaking tradition!!
    This show is great! The plot is interesting and doesn't play into the rank formula that Saint Seiya uses often. The Gold Saints actually feel like they are powerful warriors and the enemies feel like a real threat instead of underdog bait. I feel that the Gold Saints are legitimately being challenged as opposed to going against the odds like the Bronze Saints in the original. There is also some ...

  • I wish I could do halves.
    I wish I could do halves, because this is a 3.5 star show.

    People complain about the animation, but it's not super horrible compared to a lot of things on crunchyroll, including Saint Seiya related stuff, and I don't really have an issue with the story, because it's a CALL BACK to the old series, which some people refuse to acknowledge that the old series, even the HADES saga went pretty much ...

    My first entry into the series.
    Do they ever actually fight? I've seen 5 episodes and all they do is shoot light at each other. Seems like these types of archetypes are ripe for unique powers but they all inedibly do the same thing. Story isn't very interesting and the baddies have no reason to be bad.
