OK, dont know where to start but It seens that the overture movie was avoid after all...

And now some questions:

-What happends next??
-Is there any announcements about new OVAs??
-Hades was such a pussy in this ep!!!

Feel free to make a joke of me, but I waited for so long to see the end of this sht and it end like this?? The Hades Chapter stared in 2002!!! WTF????

Well, I guess I'm the only remaining Fan that waited for so long, but belive me, I'll never do that again!!

Haha, you're not the only one left !

I was also waiting it, the Hades Sanctuary chapter was really awesome but i enjoyed this one a bit less. The end was pretty boring to me, it's just the usual stuff you see in Saint Seiya, nothing unexpected almost

I think it's not really worth to watch the serie unless you're a real fan. I only liked the god/myth armors and a few scene (like the pandora's one) rest is just the old Seiya over and over again. Long boring speech, quick fight, getting beat up badly, can't die because of hope/friends, get stronger, end. Almost.

I did enjoy it though, but as a fan, and i'm still disapointed also that it wasn't as good as Hades Sanctuary, not even coming to close it.

Seiya is the protagonist of the whole Saint Seiya Manga/Anime.

He is just Bronze Saint but he is such powerful that seems like he can beat everyone.

The fact that he could harm such powerful oponent (with God Cloth) as it is GOD HADES, it was quite enough. If he could win at this time too, it would just get much much bored.

I liked this episode (even just because of that Seiya died).

LOL, I watched the original back when I was 10... and now I just thought, hey, it would be cool to see how it all wraps up!

oooo BOY I was wrong, this is TERRIBLE!!!!

The only good thing that came out of it is that now I know for sure there is nothing else to watch, I never ever want to recall this thing again, it's repetitive, predictive, repetitive, boring, repetitive, "animation - less" (never seen so much use of stock footage and "pan" animation before, makes me wonder why the hell took them 6 years to finish it), repetitive and disappointing from every angle.

I sure was an easily amazed kid back then and in truth it didn't have much to compete against so it was "above average" as an anime, but for today standards it's atrocious even when paired with some of the worse productions we have!

Great ending to the Hades saga, I went ahead and watched Overture after this and I was dissapointed. Moving to Omega Anime and Next Dimension Manga.

Wtf? What a let down. So my post back in the original series was true? Love is the most powerful thing? Wow just wow. And was Hades hinting at stuff from lost canvas when he mentioned the pegasus? I'll probably go watch overture, which sounds horrible, and then go watch lost canvas.

I guess the best thing about this series remains to be the badass cloths.

I just watched Overture. If youre reading this and plan on watching overture as well, do yourself a favor and dont, just skip it and go to Omega or Lost canvas.

Hades needs more screen time , a series based on him would have potential .
This was pretty much average .
I hope watching the original Saint Seiya will make watching Lost Canvas a better experience .

I heard about the movie that comes after this( and that it's bad, but I'm just gonna watch it anyways), but if this had been the finale, I would say that it was kind of bland. Seiya's death did not make me feel sad, it was like "boom! stab wound to the chest, dies peacefully in Athena's arms." Whaat?! And the ending did not feel like an ending! What happens next? No Epilogue( unless you watch the movie sequel).

I'm not gonna criticize since the manga was from the 80s and this ending would have been really sad to the fans back then.

Actually, back then, the manga was cancelled during the Hades Chapter. If I remember it right, the mangaka got the chance to set things over in 2 tomes (I don't even remember if the series was still published in the magazine for the last chapters of the manga). So, that was a quick way to end things, that's alL
