The second season of Saint Seiya Lost Canvas just finished and I believe it's high time I took both series into consideration and shared my thoughts about them. Forgive me for collapsing the two into a single entity, but once the whole show is completed most reviewers will actually do the same.

For starters, it's worth mentioning, that although the series has been up as an OVA for more than 2 years now, we are still only half-way through. This is because at the time the first episode was aired, the manga was still ongoing and only recently came to a spectacular end (at least for read more

Is my first review, english is not my first language, don´t be harsh XDDD.
SS Lost Canvas, is like a dreamed SHONEN adaptation, nice animation, a real war, no plotkai. Shonen series should imitate lost canvas

Im a classic Saint Seiya fan, but I consider Lost Canvas as the superior one.

Now, first I will introduce people about saint seiya:

This anime tells the story of the previous Holy War, taking place in the 18th century, 250 years before the original series, in the Saint Seiya universe. The story centers on the relation between Tenma, the Pegasus Saint and his beloved friends, Alone, who eventually becomes his greatest enemy, read more

This review will consider both seasons jointly.

Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas is a spin-off to the original series Saint Seiya by Masami Kurumada. For those who have not seen that original series, it is based on the greek mythology, where the universe is ruled by greek deities and each of them counts with a group of warriors called "saints" (for the warriors of the goddess Athena, the one the author decided to be the main one of the series and the goddess of the Earth) or "specters" (for the warriors of the god Hades, god of hell and the underworld), who swear allegiance to read more

In this installment, picking up from where the last series leaves off, there is more at stake, more danger, and it gets progressively darker but yet exciting at the same time. Though Tenma is officially the main character, the 3 acts that this story centers more around 3 gold saints.

The 3 gold saints are Manigoldo, the Cancer saint, El Cid, the Capricorn saint, and Sisyphus, the Sagitaurrius saint. And even though their respective original series counterparts didn’t really have much screen time as lets say Saga, Mwu, or Milo did, these characters do a whole lot and demonstrate how fucking bad ass they are. read more
