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?

PT-BR
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
Sem contar read more

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 read more

The Lost Canvas is usually heralded as being vastly superior in all ways to the original, an opinion I can't understand when the exact opposite is true.

[Note: May contain minor spoilers for Saint Seiya and The Lost Canvas]

First, looking at the story, there isn't really much to say. It's mainly just an expansion of the Hades Arc from the original except far less interesting due to prequel syndrome already making it apparent who will live and survive. Even in this area, it does a poor job as we're told in the original manga that Dohko and Shion were the only survivors of the war, yet read more

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 read more
