Zeus had a daughter named Athena, the goddess of war. A group of youths flocked to Athena fighting to protect her amidst heroic battles as her "Saints". Their proof of being a Saint laid with the battle protector known as Sacred Cloth.

After a virtual eternity, a new struggle is about to unfold now again over the Cloth. A boy named Seiya has crossed way over to Greece to undergo the training to become a Saint and obtained the Cloth, Bronze cloth, the lowest position among Saints. Every Saint takes a constellation as their tutelary god. And Seiya's guardian star is Pegasus. Now, the saints gather together from all over the world to participate in the "Galatic War" - championship of Saints, aiming at the Gold Cloth, the symbol of ruler of the Saints. The curtain for Galatic War has been cut open. During the death battle between the Saints, Phoenix, the Black Saint, suddenly appeared on the scene and runs off with Gold Cloth in front of a full house in his ambition to become ruler of the world. Seiya and his fellow bronze cloth warriors go after Phoenix and his "Shadow Army" to retrieve the lost Gold Cloth...

The battles waged among the saints, the strongest young men on earth, begin now!

This show was doomed when Netflix changed Shun's gender, but Toei did that in Saint Seiya's last film with Scorpio Miro and even that Miro didn't participate a lot there were some that turned up their noses, yet Netflix thought it would be a good idea: "REPRESENTATION". They changed the lore, they added a new story, yet they couldn't add a 6th saint to represent a female, they had to change Shun.

Fast forward to its launch, it was a car crash, people hating it, people trying to understand it, a minority liking it, the score here - and anywhere else really - speaks for themselves, ...

Jokes on you Netflix I finally watched the whole thing, even if it was painful.

This is going to be a hate critique I don't find any qualities in this thing. In my opinion this adaptation just takes a dump on the original Saint Seiya. I'm a fan of Saint Seiya and I'm someone who likes omega. So with that in mind let's get started.

The story :
I don't understand what they were going for here, there is so much that doesn't make sense. First issue, the technology of the cloth, why ? I mean they never explained how the cosmos and everything works scientifically ...

Mixed Feelings
You can rest assured, this is an analysis by the technical side, without revealing the plot of the story. Anyone who knows Saint Seiya in the manga knows that his story is more coherent than his anime version. Here the screenwriter tried to make the story shorter and with adaptations for our current era. In some ways it was interesting, but it took away the emotion of the dramatic moments, here it is understood that the screenwriter wanted to make this version more childish and light, something that nostalgic people will not enjoy. We don't know if the budget for the series went down, but ...
