Basically all the cast from the Hades Inferno/Eliseum chapters except Shun (for obvious reasons lmao). At least they picked a great voice actress for her.

They can add Kana Hanazawa and Hiroshi Kamiya, and it will still be shit.

No one will watch that.

They still have Next Dimension to milk after.

The fans of the original, who want fidelity. Just promote Marin/Sheena/June as one of the mains, if the producers wanted more women.
Also, if you're REALLY going to gb someone and give f you to the fans, at least do it to Hyoga. Doing on Shun kinda screws the Ikki-Shun relaptionship dynamics (now it feels like a bossy older brother being overportective of his frail younger sister).

I’m glad we’re getting some sort of Saint Seiya show but why can’t we get a sequel of Next Dimension instead, that would be better !!

Perfect ! That's where having an entire alternative cast is great ! This way, I won't miss not watching it.

Theoretically, this is called St Seiya Ω.

edit: the worst part of 3D Shun is not even her sex, it's her haircut ! Long haired female would be too cliché? (more than pacifist female?)

I'm surprised they brought back Fumiko Orikasa as Saori; since in Saintia Sho she was voiced by Minori Inase.

Not that I mind, though, on contrary.

Still, I think I'm gonna be watching this first in english version, since it is original, I believe.

Aw man, why CGI? Hopefully this looks better than the Godzilla Netflix films.
