Story and Characters
Even though it's six episodes, the pacing is very even and all the characters are present and united. And during the final battle, there are some cool things that do happen that you have to see to for yourself like with what also happens in the previous oavs. And the ending is also pretty amazing and it's very rare that Shounen uses the ending that it uses, but it is kind of ambiguous, but yet respectfully satisfying. But I feel if you have some familiarity with some of the prior works to Kurumada Masami, specifically Ring ni Kakero, I thought the ending was read more

The final segment of the Hades Arc is overall mediocre.

After having Inferno deviate away from the typical formula of the series, the final segment with the battles against Thanatos/Hypnos and Hades is the typical tale of Seiya getting a miraculous power up and the main cast overcoming their foe with the power of friendship, not to mention said climax being rushed and bland. It also doesn't help that it features other cheap plot contrivances such as Pandora's sudden change of heart or Seika suddenly getting over amnesia.

The battle is in the Elysium, against the gods, Hades and two of his followers, Hypnos and Thanathos, obviously much stronger than the protagonists. Here we have gods, very powerful beings, who can't kill 5 kids (because the protagonists can't read more

In a race against time, the Saints must save Saori and keep Hades from plunging the universe into the Great Eclipse! This addition to story is less climactic than the explosive "Inferno" arc, but the narrative does its job and fills in all of the open plot holes, though it feels like it's dragged out a little bit too long. Pandora's past is finally revealed and her arc ends with the audience getting closure about the purpose of her existence in the series!
