    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,

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • I wish I could do halves.
    I wish I could do halves, because this is a 3.5 star show.

    People complain about the animation, but it's not super horrible compared to a lot of things on crunchyroll, including Saint Seiya related stuff, and I don't really have an issue with the story, because it's a CALL BACK to the old series, which some people refuse to acknowledge that the old series, even the HADES saga went pretty much ...

    Breaking tradition!!
    This show is great! The plot is interesting and doesn't play into the rank formula that Saint Seiya uses often. The Gold Saints actually feel like they are powerful warriors and the enemies feel like a real threat instead of underdog bait. I feel that the Gold Saints are legitimately being challenged as opposed to going against the odds like the Bronze Saints in the original. There is also some ...

    the Gold Saints made me do this
    Yes, the animation and drawings were disappointing and sometimes appalling, and yes the story was very action-heavy and basic. But I was happy watching every second of this just because they're the original Gold Saints lol. Every second adds a bit to their personalities, which are still somewhat obscure in an interesting way. There were some nice moments of interaction, and they actually worked ...

    Explode my cosmos!!!
    Saint Seiya has a special place in my heart. The animation was subpar, yes, and the plot was every bit as formulaic as you'd expect. It's a defiinite tribute to the classic series. But the 12 Gold Saints kicking ass together is nothing if not awesome

  • Great watch. Story is ok, but not deep kind of slow at times.
    I've not seen the earlier series but after seeing this I'm quete intrigued.

    Got to say, its not the deepest story as in content and at some parts it feels like over extending a scene (as in dragon ball) but in the end still great watch.

    I don't know if the earlier series had the same thing going but the "Special" moves where pretty reppetetive.

    Concept etc is cool.
