The artwork is pretty to look at. Also, each episode gives you a warm-hearted feeling, which isn't a bad outcome for something that is heavily focused on slice-of-life.
Only writing this after 7 episodes and still watching. Hopefully things keep up like this. However, seeing that there are only 4 episodes left, there is a high chance the anime may end in an open-ended way. Like someone said in their review, the manga or light novels of this series is impossible to find. This means this anime is mostly made as a promotional piece for the manga or light novels. read more

The ending could have been better but I can understand where this is going since the Light novels are not completed yet. This leaves a possibility of a second season which will make anyone happy. read more

By the point where I stopped the characters have unfortunately turned stale and are not as endearing as previous instalments of Precure. This is a shame since the series started off promising. The only few things that I do like about this is the animation of the henshin/power-up sequences, which look dynamic.
I will point out that the introduction of the 5th Precure (Cure Ace) complicated things. The design and concept of this character looked good, however the late introduction as a deus ex machina did not help the faltering storyline. With the addition of too many characters that don't really matter (yet play important roles), the storyline seemed too spread out for any proper character development in anyone of them. It also seemed as though the writers didn't know what to write anymore and just brought Regina back to hold up the show until its grand finale early next year.
The cast unfortunately risks being forgotten. The costume designs are terrible, not very original and therefore not very popular among children who loved the Precure series. There has been a recent drop in ratings that caused the show to hover around a 4.0 average rating.
The change in music was initially good, however as episodes go by I couldn't capture that feeling. It is good for its purpose, but it was not endearing.
Doki Doki Precure is worth a watch, but I have decided to drop this for the time being. Maybe I shall see how it ends up once it ends. read more

This series was clearly written for new blood - i.e. new fans to the world of Saint Seiya and those of a newer generation and of different values from the previous generation, hence the new generation of Saints. Many of the changes have been heavily criticised (i.e. cloth stones, elements), however I hope that along the series, they will provide more explanations for these changes.
With the exception of the concept for the Ninja Saint and a new perspective into the law of the mask, major originality is something that should not be expected of this series.
The story was good, but slightly slow-paced after Athena's disappearance and with the introduction of the Palestra / Saint school arc. It was not for nothing, plot devices were set in place, slowly yet surely. With the upcoming revelations (which I shall not spoil in this review), the show is starting to pick up. Saint Seiya Omega has a lot of potential for growth and needs to tie up the loose ends while the story goes on.
The art is either a hit or miss with people, since not everyone enjoys the youthful vibrance in the artwork - with some preferring artwork of a mature or darker nature. At certain points , the colors may be a little too soft for the important landmarks of the series. (e.g. the 12 temples) Colors and shine of armor has been inconsistent. Quality has been alright, although the animation and fights sometimes leave more to be desired. Hopefully, they will start moving out of the elemental spam sooner or later as the new Saints make progress in their fights.
The music is effective and needs no more mention, other than the fact that re-introducing Pegasus Fantasy as the OP was one of the best things that has happened for this series.
The characters still have a lot of room for growth and discovery and we will eventually have more of their backstories, but they tie in very nicely and they have also stated that characters from the old series will make their appearances later, so fans of the older series at least have something to look forward to for nostalgia's sake. I enjoy watching every week's episode and the end leaves me wanting for the next episode. So far, there is always something to look forward to.
My personal opinion is that the mark of a potentially successful series is one that generates controversy or talk. By that mark, Saint Seiya Omega has a lot of potential. Let's see what they will do with it. For now, sit back, relax, and let the show roll. read more
