When I started the original series a while back, I only ended up getting through the first 4 or so episodes, yeah, I know it's bad. Around how far into the series would you guys say it really begins to pick up? I really want to watch it, but I want to know how long it will take me to get there so I don't burn out for a few months...
How will the new series be different from the old? (Should I have seen the first series in order to appreciate the new one, ect.)

I think the Sanctuary/12 houses arc is really good... at least by Saint Seiya's standards. But the plot takes quite some time to get there, so I wouldn't really recommend it - and it's not like the series takes a radical turn or something. To be completely honest, though, the only reason I even bothered finishing Saint Seiya was nostalgia.

EDIT: Damn, forgot to comment about the news. I'm going to need more info, but for now it's not quite exciting for me.

I remember the initial episodes been fun with Fenix been as ass and all that but the 12 houses where hands down the best.
After that Poseidon and Odin are just alright but Sanctuary was an amazing watch.
huh?

Overture was a big failure, so you shouldn't have big hopes about it...
Anyways, i was hoping for the third season of Lost Canvas, or Episode G adaptation, but this looks promising

But overture is the end of the manga as well, thats how the series really ends.
Disregard that I got confused...that shit aint canon

Anyways im always up for anything Saint Seiya related. After eating up so much of my childhood I just have to watch it.

As if I need more spring anime to watch...

This seems to be a sequel of some sort anyway so I'll just save it for whenever I finish the rest of the main series. And OVAs. And movies.

Good news. I liked what I've watched of the first season, and Lost Canvas also has been great so far.

You're wrong.
It's an original story, it's not based on any Kuramada's manga.
Though, I hope that it'll have some sort of connection with original Saint Seiya (I mean the first series - not manga spin-off's).
Seiya is mentioned so I guess it may be so.
And I also hope that it won't be a complete disaster. It better not be.. seriously.

Why don't they released the third season of Lost canvas first? The manga is already complete :(

But this one is cool, Umakoshi Yoshihiko is doing the character design :)

Too many Saint Seiya spinoffs as it is. Though it's better than seeing the franchise die. Almost thought this was a reboot. Can't say which one I would have preferred, personally I would have enjoyed a direct sequel.

It was last year that I finally finished Hades/Inferno and the movie. I haven't caught on this Lost Canvas people are excited about to know if it's good...

And now we have a new one? Wow, so many years later... I'm at the very least curious about it!

YESSSSSSSSSS. New season of Lost Canvas would have been more awesome, but any Saint Seiya is STILL better than no Saint Seiya.

I love Saint Seiya, and I hope we can see a little about the old characters, like the Bronze Saints~ (Not just Seiya as a Gold Saint)
And yeah, 3rd season of Lost Canvas would be awesome. I hope they'll do one~

They should really have done the third season of Lost Canvas instead of this new anime. Or at least I hope that when this one finishes they do continue with Lost Canvas.
