Saint Seiya was one of the very first anime series I watched as a young kid. Being that I might've had a bias towards this anime, I decided to watch it again not very long ago. While I admit this series is not as good as I remembered it, I belive it is still worth watching.

Saint Seiya had a brief run on Cartoon Network, but due to its violent content, it was moved to a very poor time and gradually lost any attention it received. If you followed it while they aired it or if you are just curious, I encourage you read more

Story

Saint Seiya is a shounen that features several elements of mythology (mostly Greek mythology) and astronomy (constellations). The main characters, the Bronze Saints (knights), are responsible to protect goddess Athena and the humanity against the evil gods.

Recommendations

Bleach is clearly inspired in Saint Seiya and this is more noticeable in the Soul Society saga, which is very similar to the 12 Gold Saints Saga. The Bleach Captains looks a lot with 12 Gold Saints, both looks "invencible" and the difference in power for the protagonists is initially giant.
Naruto was probably influenced by Saint Seiya's concept of lower class soldiers fighting and defeating those of higher hierarchy. The upper class soldiers notably underestimates their lower class opponents and are overcome.
