how the fuck power levels work in saint seiya? you'll expect the other gods to have their own gold saint level warriors, but every time athena's gold saints manage to win with no problem, yeah they die sometimes but that also makes them stronger...
>>
There are no power levels in Saint Seiya, only Gold Saints circlejerk
By the time of Next Dimension the bronze saints have absolutely no business getting rekt by goldies
>>
>>154376189
I was kind of mad at the poseidon saga, the bronze saints just walked in and killed poseidon's saints without giving a fuck, no golden armor or anything.

Every Saint Seiya fight in a nutshell.
>>
>>154376084
The problem in SS balance isn't the gold saints, it's the 5 bronze ones that are at least lesser gods level. Pegasus mainly since IIRC Lost Canvas confirmed he always stays next to Athena in every reincarnation and always goes divine, so Athena has always an at least Lesser god level saint next to her that can make short work of Thanatos with nearly no effort

Kind of just a visual flare, it's pretty stabilished that the cloth doesn't mean shit their cosmos are on 7th sense level 'n' shit, Seiya with the 8th sense was able to push Radamanthys even inside the barrier that completely fucked Mu, Aioria and Milo

I think the armor came from Greece, it was just waiting for the saint on China so it's probably more western dragon inspired.

How a non-canon work confirm anything?

The fact that Pegasus and the other main Bronzies stay beside Athena was already stabilished in the original series.

No dude, check its dormant state (the cloth taking the form of its constellation), it's definitely a chinese dragon.

No it wasn't, it lacked the best god warriors and it was overall just a series of fights without depth, Asgard in the anime infinitely superior.
>>
>>154379113
Not really, Gold Saints were stabilished as being the last line of the defence from the get go, they are meant to take on gods themselves and their strongest aides, only someone of that caliber would dare to advance the 12 palaces.

I hate soul of shit so fucking much
it's amazing how Toei managed to do something as horrible as Omega S2.
>>
Fuck the power levels, a better question would be, how do the special moves work?

Watching the anime and reading the manga, it was never clear to me what's supposed to be "real" and what's just there for visual effect.

Some like Hyoga's and Shun's are easy to understand, but Shiryu's for example, is he actually materializing cosmo dragons with his fists? If not, what's going on? What does the attack look like without the visual effect? He's just punching? Same for Seiya, I can understand he's punching really fast, but the attack seems to have range, so does that mean he's shooting small energy balls along with the punches or is that just a visual effect?
>>
>>154379383
Omega S2 had a lot of low points but the good parts were really good. SoG was just bad all around.
>>
>>154379357
But it isn't, Kurumada's artbooks and the ultimate editions of the manga with trivia at the end of all volumes state time and again that those speeds are real.
>>
>>154379383

I thought their attacks were lightspeed, not their actual running speed.
>>
>>154379444
aparently they can also fly but they forget.
>>
>>154379387
Cosmo taking shape, it isn't hard to grasp.

Anyway Shiryu's Shoryuha is an uppercut that launches a dragon, how is that not clear for you? It's the ultimate attack that he learns later, One Hundread Hozan Shoryuha, is just him launching 100 dragons made of cosmo out his hands.
>>
>>154379357

The speed of light part may be bullshit.

But the Gemini Saints can indeed send you to another dimension.
>>
>>154379444
They allegedly can move at lightspeed as well, Mu and Aldebaran say as much when explaining the Bronzies why they couldn't even touch the Gold Saints at the begining of the Sanctuary.
>>
>>154379444
They can run as fast in normal circumstances but when they get into a territory protected by a god they can be affected by whatever restriction said god put in place (that's why it takes forever to climb the 12 houses)
>>
>>154379651
then why do they even need to use planes to go from japan to greece?
>>
>>154379429
The only good parts of S2 were:
>them actually going all the way with the Subaru story and keeping him as Saturn at the very end
>the resolution feeling satisfying despite them being unable to beat Saturn
>Titan vs Harbinger
>Titan vs Seiya
>Titan in general
>Seiya and Saori

Worst part was that they didn't know what to do with the huge cast, including the Gold Saints. All the main character bronzes might as well have been a single character.
>>
>>154379651
Fairly sure that's not the case if we take into account that they are trying to save the god that protects that place

As someone who liked the first season way more than i should've, the second season really rustles my jimmies, i get wanting to look more like the classic and i appreciate that, but the nostalgia pandering were off the charts and the entire invasion to the city there was a clusterfuck, it's like it started without the intent of being the last stronghold but decided halfway that yes it was the final area
Thank God for Harbinger and Titan for keeping me motivated to watch it And Tohru Furuya, i love that man's voice

What were the worst parts?

>I'M NO LONGER A SERVANT OF ATHENA
>I'M A SERVANT OF ROCK
>>
>>154379226
He would just punch his way out.

Gold Saints would get punched out too. Most of them likely in just a single punch
>>
>>154380217
The worst part was definitely the animation. It's not like S1 was amazing other than like 4-5 episodes but it looked decent enough for Toei. S2's animation was terrible all the way through.

The Hades Judges are only three but are stronger than an average Gold. And a number of non-Judge Specters seem to fight at Gold Saint level, even in the original series.
>>
>>154377170
>kind of hard to believe only athena's saints has unlocked the 7 and 8th sense
Whenever a warrior for other god can fight on that level, I assume they're using 7th sense too. I don't know if it's mentioned in any of the Asgard arcs, but they definitely do mention light speed. And there's no way the Hell Judges don't have 7th sense.
>>
>>154376084
Athena is the goddess of warfare and strtegy so she has the best boys. Also, she's basically the only one who likess humans, so the others probably just don't try to gather an rmy.
>>
>>154381548
You figured the gods wouldve learned by now to not piss off the pegasus user since he goes offing gods left and right
>>
>>154381361
Pretty sure the judges are at the same level of gold saints, Radamanthys only rekt the 3 dudes because of the barrier in Hades castle, once he fought Kanon outside of it he had trouble
>>
>>154378299
>>154378693
The Dragon constellation is Greek, traditional Chinese astronomy had different ones. But Greek dragons don't have wings, either.

Also, I don't know why they don't call him Draco, when they use Cygnus instead of Swan.
>>
>>154381588
Only the current Pegasus has killed gods, the previous ones probably managed to punch one or two at most.
>>
>>154379387
Seiya's attack was shown to be long-distance
>>
>>154381593
Kanon and Saga are some bullshit though. We never get a definite matchup but they're at least as strong as Aioria, who is supposed to be the strongest of the regular golds in sanctuary arc.
>>
>>154382047
>>
>>154382271
Ah I knew I forgot someone. Yeah he's also up there. I think he may have gotten stronger just for the sake of the Hades arc.
>>
>>154381875
But is he shooting cosmo long-distance, or just a regular range punch that's so strong that the physical effects fuck shit up from afar?

>>154382047
>Aioria, who is supposed to be the strongest of the regular golds in sanctuary arc.
>>
>>154382271
>Shaka
>Stronger than Kanon and Saga
Loving every laugh.
>>
>>154382047
>Aioria, who is supposed to be the strongest of the regular golds in sanctuary arc.
Meant to ask: when the fuck did they ever imply that?
>>
>>154381736
Pegasus has never killed a major Olympian. He put a wound on Hades in the 18th century holy war and again in the 20th century. He did kill Thanatos but the God of Death doesn't count among the 12 Olympian Gods.
>>
When you think about it Saint Seiya more or less invented the shounen rescue arc.
>>
>>154382271
Tied with Saga
>>
>>154382047
Aiolia was never the strongest. All hype and status goes to Saga and Shaka. Repeatedly said Gemini Gold Saints have the most power and strength while Shaka is the Gold Saint closest to God. Hell Saga is also called the Demigod and a godkiller. Saga killing Shion in rage was because he admitted Saga was more powerful then Aiolia but was still not mature enough to be his successor.
>>
>>154382410
It's kind of the same thing I guess. Cosmo causes the effect of strong air pressure, or something.
>>
>>154382500
It's actually different but a lot more specific: the Sanctuary and Soul Society are the exact same. Down to the Captain/Gold Saint cocksucking that the manga later on became.
>>
>>154382047
Deathmask WAS supposed to be the strongest Gold Saint before Kurumada retconned it.

During the Shiryu Vs. Deathmask fight, at one point he says "How could you hit me, Deathmask, who is the strongest among the Gold Saints?"
>>
>>154382976
Don't they say the same about Aphrodite being the strongest?
>>
>>154377170
All top-tier Cosmo Warriors have awakened the Seventh Sense.
In Lost Canvas there is a Specter with the 8th Sense.
>>
>>154382495
Omega Seiya probably did kill whole pantheons at that point
>>
Why is Chronos/Saturn always used as the strongest God? He is the final boss of Next Dimension and was the final boss (who they didn't even beat) in Omega. Is it because Uranus sounds dumb?
>>
>>154382271

Shaka couldn't defeat Aiolia.
>>
>>154383168
the God of Time sounds more menacing than the God of Sky.

Chronos is also tied to a number of events in Lost Canvas, because he sealed his brother Kairos

>>
> Could have been an interesting Greek mythology inspired epic

>>
>>154383339

Hades arc does not follow any structure. It's mostly just Seiya and Shun wandering around hell.
>>
>>154382961
Kurumada and Toei cocksuck Gold Saints because that's what brings the money.
>>
>>154383168
Cronos was the big biss in Episode G too.
>>154382976
Deathmask claimed that. Saga and Shaka have WoG aiding them.
>>
>>154383322
see? this is bullshit. even if you go at the speed of light it will take you billions of years to cross billions of galaxies and even if you do it probably the universe won't even exist anymore when you reach said place. I always thought those were more like metaphors of a place that you can reach by enlightment or something, like Shambhala, some say it's a real place but others say it's a state of mind. the only way I see this working it's if the saints were a fourth dimesional being.
>>
>>154376084
>how the fuck power levels work in saint seiya?

They don't.
You see, Athena has the goddess of victory with her, and that's the sole reason why she'll always win every holy war.

Did you not follow everything that came after?

- Lost Canvas (and its spin-off)
- G Saga (and its sequel)
- Soul of Gold

Those are pure Gold Saint dick sucking, then there are those which the goldies aren't the center but have a lot of spotlight:

- Sanitia Sho
- Next Dimension

Make no mistake, the Gold Saints are Kurumada's unexpected golden goose, he never expected them to become that much popular, they were throwaway villains he never expected to use again, but popularity demanded a change of course.
>>
>>154384969
It's funny how Omega 2 tried to capitalize on it by making each of the 4 dudes harboring 3 zodiac signs

>>154384969
Powerlevel wise they're the only ones that should matter so it's not that surprising.
>>
>>154385149
Nah, even with that much popularity on their side if Seiya is present in the given work then in the end he will bleed till he gets a new power to defeat the enemy.
>>
>>154385030
Which is ridiculous in itself, in fact Omega might pack the worst pack of Gold Saints yet, with only a few exceptions.

Even G Assassin knows who should have been the 21th century Gold Saints.

Kiki, Harbinger and Fudo were the only legitimately good new Gold Saints in Omega. Genbu was a huge asspull. Ionia had a good backstory but he was a huge jobber. Mikene had a great design but he was an even bigger jobber. Schiller and Paradox were ridiculous-looking jobbers. Tokisada and Sonia were basically fake Gold Saints.

I guess Amour was also fine for an antagonist even if he went down unceremoniously to show off Kouga had turned evil.
>>
>>154384106
Bronze Saints had to kill themselves when fighting the Gold Saints in the Sanctuary Chapter/arc. The anime makes some significant changes in fights and story points with the source material:
>Shiryuu has to be basically saved twice once by Dohko and secondly by Athena's Cosmos to not get raped by Deathmask
>Whose defeat is also further caused by his own Gold Cloth abandoning him due to how corrupt he was
>Shiryuu when fighting Shura has to basically resort to a suicide move to take out Shura, who is so touched by his fighting spirit and resolve he forces his own Gold Cloth to save Shiryuu while letting himself die
>Camus always wanted to lose and die against Hyouga
>Hyouga would've died anyway after they both go down to their mutual ultimate attacks because of Shun warming him up with his body and Cosmos
>First time Seiya fought Aiolia when amped with Aiolos' Gold Cloth he was only able to last a short while and because he couldn't use the 7th Sense got fucked immediately after that until Force-Ghost Aiolos saved him by talking to Aiolia or some shit (memory on this is rusty so could be wrong)
>Saga removed all of Seiya's senses and basically killed Ikki so bad that they assumed he was dead for months between the end of the Sanctuary story arc and the Poseidon arc until Ikki shows up to save Shun
>Saga had to kill himself
>Before that Ikki again like Shiryuu was going to resort to a super suicide/kamikaze attack on Shaka who came back from it just fine and had Mu save Ikki and bring him back from that weird alternate dimension
>>154384969
Episode G and Episode G - Assassin are both at least supervised and written by both Okada and Kurumada who oversees it. Like someone already said, Toei and Kurumada are well aware the Gold Saints are what keeps their figurines selling out as well as a big impact on the video games too. That's why you have two canon spin-off/side-story manga that focus on the Gold Saints primarily (first is Aiolia, second is Shura).

That in the anime, too- I always liked it more in the anime because it was the good part of Saga killing himself to save Athena, IMHO worked better than Evil Saga being exorcised and Good Saga killing himself
