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.

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.

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 ...

Saint Beast series itself is alright. This particular selection of episodes put together had no real story plot and ended poorly. If writers wanted to have a better fan base they should have added more episodes and explained more of went on in the ending so the Saint Beast episodes would make sense. Watching this alone would confuse anyone. I fortunately found Tenshi no Shippo first which made watching the Saint Beast episode series easier to understand. I would not recommend watching any of the saint beast related episodes without watching Tenshi no Shippo first. For character development there wasn't really anything building other than ...

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 ...
