  • Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.
    Well, I'll just recommend you this.. Don't lose time reading this. Start watching it. It's awesome. Wll since I have to write a longer review to submit it, I'll say a couple things, Saint Saiya: Lost Canvas is a prequel to Saint Seiya. I watched the first one when I was little, I loved it. Now I started this one and it's just amazing, everything about it is awesome. The opening fits perfectly, ...

    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 ...

  • Succeed to bring back good memories + being fresh
    I am a fan of the original Saint Seiya, and I love this "prequel", maybe even more, as it uses what was so great in the first serie (the mix of mythology, great fights, design of the characters ...) but also add some more complicated stories, more deep characters and many new elements that makes it different enought so that you don't fell like watching the same anime, but brings the nostalgy!! ...

    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 ...

    Hmm, to be completely honest
    Lost Canvas has to be on of the most overrated animes of all time. Its okay. but not a masterpiece like most of their fans make it out to be. I felt like i was watching naruto instead of SS. 1.5/5 stars.
