Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold
Saint Seiya will never die. These series (and movies and games and pretty much any other content) has been very popular for years. And why not? The story behind it is quite brilliant. But yeah, you can clearly see that the most recent series are just not on the same level as the earlier ones. They are just milking as much money from it as possible.
They tried to keep the artwork as similar as possible, you can tell, but let’s face it; the first series aired almost twenty years ago. You cannot produce stuff from that year and expect to air it in this day and age.
Story-wise it’s okay, I suppose. It’s not nearly one of the best series out there. It’s not going to be either. But hey, it’s better than some of the other shows this season. I for one think it’s worth following.
Saint Seiya fans will probably enjoy this. I cannot recommend this to anime fans that don’t know about the Saint Seiya series, seeing as they will be missing a lot of vital information that would make this story a bit strange.
