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.

The actual conclusion, the final clash, which leaves in some respects a feeling of disappointment.


After the sacrifice of the golden knights and the destruction of the wall, the protagonists set off (for the umpteenth time) to rescue Athena, in the Elysium.

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 ...
