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 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

At first I was a bit hesitant to watch this anime since there were some people who didn't recommend it and for its low rating, but I decided to give it a chance and watch it anyway. I'm glad I did because I actually really enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. The characters were all very interesting and entertaining in their own way. Yudas, Gou, Gai, Rey, Luca and Shin each brought something special to the story that made me want to watch the next episode.

It had hints of shounen-ai, which for me was fine since I like the genre. I thought the 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
