I loved the old series.
Well, I hope that they make a good job.

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.

I'll definitely watch this >w< <3
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~

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

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!

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.

Guess this means I need to get on to watching the originial first, huh. Hope it's enough motivation.

Feb 7, 2012 1:28 PM by Forest-kun

Id rather have a third season of Lost canvas....

I agree with you.

I hope that this new anime of saint seiya(one of my childhood anime) will be good.
