  • Yeah this is good. REALLY GOOD!
    Netflix just got this in May, and it was recommended for me (Sorry Crunchyroll, I didn't know what this was til Netflix). I looked up reviews, I am very picky about the anime that I watch. I liked the sound of the plot, and recognized the name from the older series airing when I was a kid. None the less I watched it in 4 days. Yeah this is good. Right from the first episode you are drawn in and ...

  • The Saint Seiya we Deserve
    The Saint Seiya series is considered "old" by anime terms (>10 years). Lost Canvas, both the anime and manga, are a much appreciated revamp of the series many loved. The animation here is stellar, the voice actors' passion is well conveyed, and the OP song has a major 1980s feel, which ties into the original aesthetic. Unfortunately, the anime ends without the series conclusion, but the ...

  • 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.

    Saint Seiya an Unexepected Adventure!
    The show was interesting because it's about the gods and saints. The main characters doesn't know that they had another life before their recent life. The story continues with characters on both sides attacking each other. The past life and present life of the main characters are tested.

  • 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 ...

    How bout a serving of AWESOME....
    Wasn't into the whole god vs devil deal but this show drew me into it. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!! It not easy for a friggin cartoon to get me emotional but this was one of the few. Very rememberable, great fights, clear messages across the board.

  • 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 ...
