I REALLY wish they would finish this because I was sooo into this!!! I guess I can finish it manga style buutt I wanna see this series complete! It is pretty damn awesome love the characters and the way the story is unfolding its pretty good!

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Forever Saint Seiya!
    Even though it only reached 2 seasons as in anime. I still thought The Lost Canvas was a really awesome prequel to it's original 1986 series "Saint Seiya" & imo --- felt like it topped Omega, as well. Having read the manga after they stopped airing episodes, & for anyone that's into reading manga like myself then you should definitely read through the rest.

    What makes ...

    Guys, guys, I do REALLY want to this show to continue, because its the best one I've EVER seen so far! I've always loved the Saint Seiya series, but this one is a INCREDIBLE version of it! Totally the opposite of Omega, which is, by the way, ...

    Why isn't there more of this?
    I just can't understand why this series ended when Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas is better than the original one and Saint Seiya Omega

    This story plot is a lot less cheesy and the graphics are MUCH better than the others

    Pretty Good, but Inconsistencies Keep it From Being Great.
    I enjoy the overall plot and the emotional over/undertones involved, but the episode by episode is lost on me. Often Hades will send a single powerful avatar to attack the Saints, and despite being able to (with apparent ease) send reinforcements to overwhelm and outnumber the enemy, the Saints rarely do. In individual fights, bluster often causes someone to lose what would otherwise seem to be a ...
