Synopsis

A long time ago, Zeus, the great god, created a three–tier hierarchy of angels, top, middle and lower, although they were supposed to be equal. Also, Zeus appointed 6 angels as Saint Beasts who govern the animals of Earth. They were: Go, the seiyu; Shin, the genbu; Rei, the suzaku; Guy, the byakko; Yuda, the kirin; and Ruka, the hooh. However, Kira, the shooting star, and Maya, the fuga, didn’t attend the selection tests and left for the Earth.

The six angels fulfilled their tasks faithfully. However, because of Zeus’s increasingly tyrannical acts, they begin to mistrust him.

I started watching this anime as I heard it was of BL or Shounen-Ai genre. It is probably one of the most painful animes to sit through that I have ever watched. The characters have little to no development, the plot is painfully boring unless you find possessed trees entertaining. There is literally NO boyXboy in any way, shape, or form. I eventually dropped this anime after episode 8 when there are only 12 episodes.

I give this anime an overall 4 out of 10 for wasting my time.

I sometimes think that deep down I am a masochist, because I cant understand how on earth I didnt drop this anime after the first 2 episodes and saved myself some precious time.
I will start saying that I absolutely love Yaoi, and since I love it so much I get fairly irritated whenever I come across this kind of bullshit.
I can even picture in my head how this anime was created:

Producer 1: Hey! there arent a lot of shonen ai animes out there, so if we make one NOW, all the fujoshis will watch it! right?
Producer 2: Great idea! but lets do read more

Well, let me start off by saying that this review will cover all three Saint Beast series: the original, six episode spin off of Angel Tales (Saint Beast: Seijuu Kourin Hen), the OVAs (Saint Beast: Ikusen no Hiro to Yoru Hen), and the thirteen episode series (Saint Beast: Kouin Jojishi Tenshi Tan).

Saint Beast was one of the first shounen ai (boys love) animes I ever saw, which might be part of the reason why it holds a special place in my heart. The plot revolves around six angels referred to as the "Saint Beasts" and their trials on earth and in Heaven, as well read more

I went into this series after being very disappointed with the OVA and at first I was pleased by the improvement in the artwork and general story. Then I watched past the first episode. After the main characters are chosen as the Six Saint Beasts, and are charged with keeping the peace on Earth, one would expect the story to unfold and become more interesting, but unfortunately it just drops off into random monster encounters and a whole lot of griping about how Zeus (the God figure) is doing a bad job at keeping order in Heaven and on Earth. Still, it would be enjoyable read more

Anime: Yousei Ou
Both take place in the worlds vaguely based of mythology; both feature naive and idealistic heroes; the atmosphere is similarly romantic with a touch of tragedy.

Anime: Ginyuu Mokushiroku Meine Liebe
Attractive guys with lots of intra-group chemistry problem-solve and kick butt in the name of justice and honour. There's some overlap in the voice casts as well.

Anime: Chrno Crusade
The semi-episodic adventures of a loosely organized group of do-gooders with dubious authority, and backstories that lay a foundation of a moral- and faith-based struggle not just between groups but within individuals.

If you could make it with the boy to boy love in lovless, then you could maybe enjoy this anime...
