    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.

  • Good show, yet predictable
    This is a good show with the armors that are awesome. although this saga is very predictable in that the main characters start by losing most of the fights, and then they pull off what seems like a miracle at the last moment just like the original. the fight scenes can be a bit slow sometimes but others its well worth it.

    Dont be fooled by Nostagia
    Everyone is being fooled by their own nostagia.
    The animation is lame, sound is regularly fair and story wise... its just ok.
    Instead of finishing the best thing that happened to Saint Seiya which was Lost Canvas, they come up with a nostalgic saga, just to grab some more money from the nostalgic fans.
    The best saga in every aspect still is Lost Canvas.

    Lost Canvas is a 5 star show..Soul of Gold is not
    Story-wise it's okay and it is always a great pleasure to follow the gold saints adventures.. Yet animation-wise it is quite poor. The characters sometimes look like they were drawn by monkeys at times. The voice-over for the gold saints is definitely C- compared to Lost Canvas or Hades arc.

    I really want to like it and it has a great potential.. what a letdown,

    BEST SAINT SEIYA SINCE THE ORIGINAL AND LOST CANVAS
    I was yearning for many years for the Saint Seiya franchise to come up with another show featuring the Gold Saints from the original Saint Seiya since Lost Canvas stopped in the middle before they discontinued. MY WISH HAD COME TRUE! :'D Watched all the episodes and I promise it won't disappoint! I will say that you would have to watched the original to Asgard and Hades Arc to get what's on in ...

  • Needs some polish, but still shines
    So far so good. I find it interesting they are using the setting from the filler arc of the original TV series, but all in all, it feels much better paced than the original series was. Characterization has been a bit slow, but seeing how several of the Gold Saints we only got to really know as villains, it's understandable.

    So far so good.

  • 12 Gold Saints back together
    Simply amazing. These serie is giving more time and history to the gold saint who are the most powerful among the saints. I love Saint Seiya since I was 7 and this will continue forever :D. This story also is related to the Non-canon arc of Odin that was an amazing arc. I hope they can give all the time to the 12 gold saints in 12 episodes, that is very short in my opinion comparing to the 96 ...

    Definetely good! I`ve watched the old anime, and i loved it, and when i heard that Soul of Gold will appear, i was sceptic. I was wrong! It`s so damned good! The first two episods did rock, and i`m so in to the 3th episode!

    The Gold Saints are back!
    And better than ever! The Gold Saints are my favorite part of the original Saint Seiya, so to have an anime just about them is like a Godsent, or should I say Athenasent. lol Furthermore, it features my favorite of the 12 Gold Saints, the Leo Gold Saint Aiolia! With a new God Cloth! This is definitely my favorite anime this season, and I look forward to watching the rest.
