    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

    pretty good but sad that it ends early
    all things considered it was pretty good, i use to watch saint seiya (well what little they dubbed in america way way back in the day :/ ) and it was pretty awesome to see another part of the story from that universe brought to life with the newer animation we have now. all in all i think it was visually stunning. a little slow a parts. heart breaking at certain moments depending on who your ...

    GREAT ANIME BUT NOT FINISHED
    I started watching Saint Seiya Omega first before this one and after the 1st episode of this one. I was hooked, This anime is pretty good. I would say as good as the original saint seiya (which I have).

    Too bad they did not finish it =(

    Interesting take on an good old classic
    As a new fan, I started watching this anime only recently. However, I am watching both this series and the original and it is a very interesting contrast. The action and adventure of the original series does not seem as pronounced in this 'prequel', but the story arc for the characters makes up for it. The original series had all of the action and fighting that we've have come to know and love ...

  • I felt like I just watched an epic
    If you can overlook the funny naming schemes, this show has it all. Almost no one has plot armor (btw, the armor designs are sick and unique), especially the ultra powerful characters. Everyone looks hella good, as expected from an altered universe of Greek mythology. While some tactics are used in battles, it's mostly down to 1v1 between individuals. Those who are more skillful wins, and this ...

  • Great anime, really dumb move cancelling it.
    The art, the story and the action were all amazing. I am very pissed off on how they ended it. They definitely should have continued this story instead of cancelling it. I felt like I was robbed, so because of that I decided to boycott the other Saint Seiya's.

  • different feel from the original series, but enjoyable
    For the first half, the only thing that kept me watching was the anticipation of seeing all of the Gold Saints (who are based Zodiac signs, which everyone can relate to). Although I appreciated the consistency of concept with the original series, I didn't like the realistic, drab character art design (they looked disturbingly snake-like), and the main characters were pretty boring. The Gold ...

  • Don't watch the original, watch this
    Saint Seiya Lost Canvas is a series with a true body that has hands down surpassed and triumphed over the classic that ran in the 80s. The one who claims otherwise is either a nostalgic or extremely biased since the series stands out with its very beautiful animation, good plot and superb voice acting.

    Unfortunately, one can also notice how LC tries to respect the original series maybe a bit ...

  • Saint Seiya The Lost Canvas - What's not to like?
    This show is amazing! The fact that it was about a holy war got my attention. The God Hades can kill what ever subject he paints is pretty cool. Also the fact that Hades and the Pegasus saint grew up with one and other and were best friends/brothers. They now need to fight each other to the death is interesting to watch.

    I wish I could read the manga. However it all seems to be printed in ...
