or not?

>>134098399
It's not bad.

It's really the only option, since the manga was never fully scanslated. Not even halfway.
>>
It doesn't hold up that well but the score is superb and it can be interesting visually at times
>>
>>134098449
I remember watching it as a kid, and the nostalgia is making me want to watch it, but don't know if it'll hold up
>>

>>134098399
It's good but the best fight in the entire fucking show happens almost right at the beginning.

Seiya vs Shiryu. They fight until they break their armors off each other, and then they KEEP FIGHTING, which is fucking awesome. There's literally nothing that tops that later on in the entire anime, barring potentially Shiryu vs Shura.
>>
It holds up, but not on say original DB level.
>>
>>134098864
Ikki vs Shaka is pretty good too
>>
The only thing I remember from when I was kid is that the battles are even more slow-paced than DBZ, with tons of pointless discussions
>>
>>134099714
wat

The fights are over so fast in Saint Seiya. The BUILD up to the fight is worse, but when the fight actually happens it's usually

>HAHA I'M SO MUCH STRONGER THAN YOU SHITTY BRONZE SAINT LOOK AT HOW BIG MY DICK IS
>UOAAAH I CAN'T BEAT THIS SUPERIOR COLORED SAINT GUH
>HAHAHA
>I HAVE NO CHOICE, I NEED TO USE THIS MOVE THAT SHOULD KILL ME
>I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW CRAZY HE IS, HE'LL KILL US BOTH... I RESPECT HIM NOW
>HYAAAAAH SUPER MOVE FUCK YOU WE BOTH DIE
>...NO BRONZE, YOU HONOR ME WITH YOUR SUICIDE ATTACK SO I WILL MAKE SURE YOU SURVIVE
>>
saint seiya is fucking amazing.
and charming.
>>
I liked Legend of Sanctuary. It was fun.

The original show's okay. I skipped the Asgard arc on my first watch and just exchanged the Poseidon arc for the manga.

Plus I wasn't a big fan of the animated Poseidon arc to begin with. The original manga arc was quicker and didn't feel like it dragged compared to the animated equivalent.
>>
>>134100035
Where'd you find translated manga senpai?
>>
>>134099823
I don't know, as a kid I thought the battles dragged for too long.
But I watched it back in 1994, maybe my memory is failing me.
>>
>>134100191
Borrowed it from my library. They had up until the start of the Hades arc with the Viz release.
>>
i fucking loved knights of the zodiac!

No it aged like shit, watch the lost canvas.

Not really, no. I tried to give it a go since my sister is so passionate about it.While the concept is interesting, it aged like shit. I dropped somewhere along episode 30 or so

I fucking loved Ronin Warriors

while doesnt aged that well, its still better than most modern anime in the last decade
but the OST is GOAT

Mostly the voices. Without that, shaina is just a generc R63 of shun and hilda would be boring.

I don't feel alone anymore, kinda sucks that Shun and Ikki got the short end of the stick in the movie, they only appeared there to get rekt.
>>
>>134099823
Saint Seiya isn't about the fights, it's about the feels. Really, it's basically a soap opera for men
>>
ONLY watch Sanctuary arc, once the 12 houses is done, stop watching.

If you liked it, move on to Lost canvas or stop.

yes, just skip the fillers.
>>
>>134107336
I was hyped as fuck when Ikki appeared, the he fucking lost seconds later. What's bad about his loss is the fact that he just got punched in the gut while the others endure getting flung around the halls and made into wall decoration

Pretty much this, the fights are the most dissapointing part of the series I believe it's because they are set up like Pokemon, they spam their techniques 'till it's over and there's no real coreography and whatnot also that stupid "the same technique won't work on a saint twice" rule.

Can somebody rank the arcs from quality to shit?

YuYu Hakusho is much better. Only watch it if you are itching for some battle shonen and have already watched the other classics.

Is it because he's the absolute worst of the main Saints?

It's not like it's any less sensible than Dragon Ball Z, why is it so unpopular?

It was big enough in my country, that a fan artist came into a very high rating National show, and showed off her Saint Seiya Doujin complete with a Naked Showering Shuun.

So is anybody playing the new game?

I'm buttmad that they released it 2 days before they said they would and now I didn't get the preorder bonus since it came out before I bought it despite buying it before the release date, when they only gave people less then half a day's heads up it was happening.
>>
>>134098399
Yes, It might have a lot of shounen cliches here and there, but has aged really well.

>>134100035
>I skipped the Asgard arc
Big mistake pal. Asgard arc has the best enemies, all of them had their own history, their own reasons to do what they were doing and their own development during the battles.
>>
>>134115136
It's actually pretty fun.
>>
>>134117229
Do you have the preorder bonus? Would you know how to upload the files for it?
