Story and Characters
It of course picks up exactly where the Sanctuary oavs leave off. This time as opposed to the Gold Saints being the central focus, the main featured characters in this series are Seiya and Shun as well as one certain Gold Saint I can't mention due to spoiler reasons in relation to the original TV series, though Hyoga and Shiryu aren't exaclty useless, they are still busy fighting their battles respective battles. And Ikki is still rarely present, but whatever presence he has will be overly significant to what happens in this story. The newer main villains that were introduced in the last read more

The middle act of the Hades Arc, Inferno, is a major step down from Sanctuary in almost every way.

Whilst quickly going through many of the battles and several Celestial Star Spectres quickly being disposed of allows it to stand out and be less repetitive when it comes to combat with its side villains than the Poseidon Arc was, it also makes them a major disappointment when Terrestrial Star Spectres such as Myu proved a genuine threat to the Gold Saints. Instead of being a true step up in power, only the Judges, Pharaoh and Rhadamanthys' underlings prove much of a genuine threat. The reveal read more

General: (7.55 / 10)

I missed the second of the three installments under the "Hades" arc.
This time it was also entertaining, but I feel that its prequel is still a step higher than "Chapter - Inferno", since although we have had good moments of drama as the final outcome with the sacrifice of the golden knights, and even history Orpheo. The battles themselves were not too memorable, I feel that the antagonists in this case the "ghosts" left much to be desired and did not give a great sense of danger or depth of characters, with the exception of Radamanthys who was one step above the read more

The continuation, with the part of the underworld. You immediately notice a change of style. If the first part (Hades Sanctuary) had dared, with some changes to the story and a bit of CG in the graphics, here we essentially stick to the manga faithfully, without even great animations.

History manages to remain good, in the Underworld with Dante inspiration. The main problem is that that feeling of war is missing, the characters are scattered, and of serious battles, in true Saint Seiya style, there are very few.

A fairly painful key is the characterization of the enemies. Except for Rhadamanthys, already presented in the previous read more
