Tenkuu Senki Shurato (or simply Shurato) is most well-known as Tatsunoko's response to Toei Animation's Saint Seiya (a classic anime very famous in Brazil, Italy and France).

Saint Seiya's plot revolves around armored warriors fighting each other in the name of the Greek gods. Tenkuu Senki Shurato follows the same concept, but with Hinduism and Buddhism as background. The character Shurato is one of the warriors response to protect the goddess Vishnu and Spiritual World from the evil gods.

The Story – a summary of the first 2 episodes (some minor spoilers)

The best friends Shurato and Gai are martial artists that live in the Human World. In read more

An anime i watched recently from around the time i started to watch anime, and some things were predictable, other things were`nt, the story i liked very much , so as some of the charachter developments, music i had no complaints about +) Only the thing is that the main person, Shurato is a bit too sensitive and does reckless things what put me off a bit, and the too emotional scene`s on and off that destracted me, But i plenty enjoyed the show

Recommendations

Anime: Saint Seiya
Both are fighting shounens with armored warriors, super powers and a traitor as a villain of some saga. Also, both are from same era, 80s years.

Anime: Chikyuu Shoujo Arjuna
Two similar yet very different anime who are heavily influenced by hindu mythology. I have to say i consider Arjuna to be way better as it also tackles the ecological issues of our modern day society. Shurato is VERY dated. Anyway, watch out for several remakes coming out in 2015 and 2016!
