    Woo! First Review!!!
    Ok, so you're probably wondering if this show is worth your time :/ At first glance, it can seem really cheesy, and cliched. Well, that's exactly what I thought as well.

    This show turns out to be one of the more interesting shows that are currently on air at this time. The plot consists of three children who grew up together, and their role in the holy war against the forces of evil, lead by ...

    PLEASE FINISH THIS SERIES.
    Now I'm no Saint Seiya buff in terms of the original but I've watched it as a kid and kept up with the series. I actually watched most of Saint Seiya Omega before TLC and Omega pales in comparison. Visually TLC is rich and refreshing, character development is somewhat strong and it feels direct. You get introduced to the plot early on and are thrown "into the fire" so to speak from the get go, ...

    First Review, but a great anime
    So, I have always been into Mythology. It is one of my favorite fields of study. The concept of Saints combined with the Greek Gods Hades and Athena is amazing to me. Not to mention using constellations to inspire the cloths for the saints. Its a bit complex and it took a few episodes to warm up but this is a great series.

    Intriguing, Great Time!
    I have seen a previous Saint Seiya, and originally I thought this was just a remake, though the story seams to be a continuation of a previous battle I really am enjoying how they worked the characters together. Many seam to be intertwined without knowing it. The Mythological twist heightens the suspense and adds to the enjoyment. I recommend this show to anyone who is looking for a mixture of ...

    The Best I've Ever Seen!!!
    The show has all it needs except an ending, but we go on, no ending in sight right? Still, I would have LOVED to have seen so much more of this one, absolutely the best theme art, and characters EVER! Seriously, this is what kids Should be watching. It has great values, and makes your root for the good guys though the bad guys are cute also, they are far to evil to root for. I usually do root ...

    Best anime I've seen in a while!!
    Sucks though, that it has been discontinued because it didn't do well in Japan, when they should've seen the impact it was making in other countries outside of Japan. And now they come up with the non-sense of Saint Seiya Omega, in which Saints go to Saints' School, cloths come from space, and on top of that, Elemental cosmo, really?!?! And to make it worse, the villains look like they came out ...

    Saint Seiya an Unexepected Adventure!
    The show was interesting because it's about the gods and saints. The main characters doesn't know that they had another life before their recent life. The story continues with characters on both sides attacking each other. The past life and present life of the main characters are tested.

    The Saint Seiya we deserved
    Lets get it out there guys: It's an offshoot, and maybe yeah reusing Hades may haven't been original, but it worked tremendously. This anime has great fighting, and itself has its own ideals. Every character deserved his part, and had amazing development. The plot took its time, but not making needless clutter. The heroes (unlike Omega) stuck to one principle, and lived by it. It is also ...

    great storyline they should have extended it
    I like how the story uses a greek goddess and then using names from astrology but Hades side with specters was a nice twist and kept the fights interesting...The fight with Pisces was something to build the story and tension. But if you like a interesting, fun anime with magic and some historical identities this anime is for you
