This manga tells the story of the previous Holy war of the universe of Saint Seiya, taking place in the XVIII century, 250 years before the original manga. The story centers on the relation between Tenma, the Pegasus Saint and his beloved friend, Alone, who would eventually become his greatest enemy, Hades.
Ok let's be simple
In Saint Seiya Classic you have:
Cliches, generic characters, cliches, more cliche, repetition, more repetition and cliche
Oh, and a POOR art style
Here you have development, good characters, good history and a good manga in general.
And a AMAZING art
And NO plot holes pratically, how amazing, hm Kurumada?
Ok, nós temos uma arte boa, desenvolvimento, bons personagens e praticamente tudo que não tem no clássico
Sem os cliches, o classico do classico, apanha, levanta, fala que não irá ser derrotado com um golpe, o golpe não funciona 2 vezes contra o mesmo cavaleiro e procede pra proxima casa
Definitivamente o MELHOR CD, sem duvidas
os Gaidens pra deixar o universo melhor ainda.
If you liked the badasses in gold in saint seiya this manga shows what there all about, a massive scale war borderline on the amazing concept and the great character and art work this is definitely a manga for you.
I found that Saint seiya was lacking a lot of fighting power and that everyone was extremely balanced this does not occur here the power levels of the almighty gold saints of Athena show what there all about, all the characters were amazing evil and good character fights all the way upto the ending.
Can't wait to read the other saint seiya spin offs anything as
good as this it's gonna be fun.
This is a little conflictive, I'm a fan of the whole Saint Seiya franchise in general, but I have to be honest.
Well the story it isn’t so complicate, like the original series but in this case it's all big saga, The Holy War. the war start in the second or first volume, being only Tenma, Alone and Sasha (this last one not so much) with a decent background history, introducing the supporting character along the story, thing that could work but it doesn’t'.
The problem is that characters like Yato and Yuzuriha are presented as the principal supporting characters but they don't act as that, they
only appear at the beginning and being forgotten in middle of the story leaving Tenma as the only character, and the gold saints appears in the right moment to save Tenma, and beat the guy that is about to kill Tenma and his companions.
The story tries to make us think that Tenma is so strong but he never proves it!!!!, is the gold saints that beat the majority of the enemies, but they keep saying that Tenma is the one that should defeat Hades even though he hasn't prove to be that strong!!!!!.
Also the mangaka tries to make us feel empathy for the gold saints and villains (sometimes), in every battle that occurs, but this doesn't feel good, it's just a flashback of their past, to learn why they’re fighting and that way approve the way their beat the villain in turn even though they don't appear to have the force to beat them.
The battles are good, but sometimes you get tired of the same formula and style, but in some cases they can be very good, the art is good, but the characterization of the characters is not that good specially in some specters that is hard to tell them apart from each other, and the narrative is mediocre is very common that you will have to re-read a chapter or some pages are hard to read.
In conclusion the story is lame, the characters are boring and a cliché as the story, the design is good but not always, the battles are fun to read if you like the original Saint Seiya, surpassing the original work in this aspect, but the characters are definitely the worst part of the history, i know that also happened in the original work, but no so much as in this case; even though all the bad points it is an enjoyable reading if you are a fan of the original work, but if you haven't read it or watched I can't recommend it to you.
No geral, gostei bastante dela.
Há bastante lutas espalhadas e cada um dos personagens principais tem seu momento de destaque.
A obra desprende do clichê que havia no clássico e praticamente não há protagonismo, com os personagens sempre vencendo por merecimento e estratégia.
Apesar de a história ser simples, é muito boa e segue num bom ritmo durante o mangá.
O mangá é bem desenhado e detalhado, além de a arte passar o que é necessário durante o mangá.
São ótimos e cada um tem seu momento, além de o protagonista, Tenma e o espectro Kagaho de Benu serem bem construídos durante a trama.
As batalhas não costumam decepcionar e a
história é boa de se ler.
Overall, I quite liked her.
There are enough fights scattered and each of the main characters has its moment of prominence.
The play detaches from the cliché that was in the classic and practically no protagonism, with the characters always winning by deserving and strategy.
Although the story is simple, it is very good and follows at a good pace during the manga.
The manga is well designed and detailed, in addition to the art passing what is needed during the manga.
They are great and each one has its moment, besides the protagonist, Tenma and the Kagaho spectrum of Benu to be well constructed during the plot.
The battles do not usually disappoint and the story is good to read.
