Why the negative tone? I mean, maybe because I'm such a huge fan of Umakoshi Yoshihiko or that I honestly think that Lost Canvas wasn't that good, the news about a new TV Saint Seiya series is IMO good news in my book.

Really looking forward to this.

Probably, I'm very excited about the prospect upon researching the source of this news.

Saint Seiya became popularly-demanded once arriving into Latin America during the anime TV boom of 1993-1998 in my country. In fact, I even recall the exact date when Saint Seiya first started broadcasting in my country; the toyline became immensely popular amongst the children of my generation back then.

I watched the whole anime, even though I watched incomplete the Hades Chapter OVA season, as well as the Lost Canvas.

The reason I'll likely having this new series in my radar is for several factors:
1. TOEI returns to make the animation and producing it.
2. It will be featuring a new story in the era after the 20th century, and also meaning a fresh and new generation of characters; adds a fresh and updated dimension to the franchise.

Guido I remember such event happen when Saint Seiya was release in Hong Kong as well. And pardon me for negative tones, but almost anything that is not based on manga for saint seiya kind of suck... Not to mention the character design look pretty pretty boy childish look.... ok Gundam Age 1 look pretty childish look. I just want to point out anime audience have devolve for 20 years now... proof

It is not like I won't watch it, but if this...."thing" the reason why there is no season 3 to Lost Canvas there will be blood. Next dimension is pretty horrible too... just how many time MUST there be

Yeah, Toei being in charge here should a good indicator for the quality (well, of select action scenes). I'm starting to think that they are trying to revisit their older successful franchises to try and replicate the same thing in the new decade, much like what they did with Digimon Xros Wars.

Dude ...

Seiya was like, 13 when the manga originally started, the same age as the protag here.

And for the pretty boys designs ... Saint Seiya is all about the pretty boys. Heck, look at Shun even, he looks like a women half the time he appears.

Being a huge Saint Seiya fanboy and a fan of Umakoshi (I've always thought his chara design would be perfect for Saint Seiya), I'm pretty damn hyped up for this.

The Asgard arc was completely original and it's one of the best storyline in Saint Seiya. Even better than some of the canon material. Saint Seiya is one of those few anime that I consider a billion times better than the manga.

We know next to nothing about this project yet so it's way too early to judge the story. Better this than Next Dimension at any rate.

I remember Saint Seiya when I was little and I watched some episodes in random order. It's one of first many shounen action manga to feature a huge load of pretty boys (it was even succeded by Yu Yu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin in old times^^).

MAL has a bit of a summary already for the series. Sounds promising.

Quote:
The protagonist is Kohga, a 13 year old bronze saint, who was raised by the goddess Athena. He admires the legendary gold saint Seiya and fights against the evil Mars, who tries to rule the world by abduction Athena.

Wow, it’s a good news for a Seiya-fan. Still, it’s also a sad news coz this is also a (kinda) confirmation that they leave Lost Canvas hanging and probably will never be looked upon again T-T.

It looks like Ares will be the main bad guy this time. IIRC, isn't Ares also the evil personality that plagued the Gemini Gold Saint in the old series? Is that 'Ares' a god too?

This excites me greatly.

Both as a Saint Seiya fanboy ( admittedly, it's not a series that has stood the test of time, but a classic non-the-less ), and the staff involved gives me hope. Umakoshi is a given, but I have also generally enjoyed the pacing of the shows Yoshida's involved in scripting/storyboarding.

Just as long as Kurumada doesn't go too crazy in whatever involvement he wants in it...

Besides, frankly, I've been wanting to see something like this out of Saint Seiya for a while now. Finally I can get some answers on what the heck happened after Hades Saga/Heaven : Overture.

And it's nice to see that the future of Saint Seiya has ( most likely ) abolished the whole 'female saints must be masked at all times. If exposed, you must kill the guy who saw it or marry him' rule.

What if the guy who (accidentally) saw her face is just 5 years old? Or an immediate family member (father, brother)? Or an already married man with family? Or a gay? Or more than 1 guy (5 at the same time, for example)? Moreover, what will she do if her face accidentally got widely broadcasted? Sorry, I can’t hold myself .

This new series sounds interesting enough, so I'll give it a shot when it starts airing. I can't say that I'm a diehard fan of the franchise, but I like what I've seen up to this point.

Well in the promo image Seiya wears Sagitarius golden cloth so the fact he turned into the new generation of golden saints is very likely. AFAIK Saori is the adoptive mother of Koga, guess who is the father .

Where is this coming from? Omega is Toei, Lost Canvas is TMS. Different studios, one project has nothing to do with the other.

Los Caballeros del Zodiaco!

So is this actually a TV show then? Possibly a reboot to go along with Hunter x Hunter? Seems like shonen action and mecha are really making a comeback this year in a way that's going to make 2007 look like a small doggie treat in comparison to what looks like an upcoming feast.

All I want to know is if Tohru Furuya is confirmed to reprise his role as Seiya or not.

Not to mention with the new Rurouni Kenshin anime !!

This new Saint Seiya TV series isn't a reboot, but a sequel with a new set of characters and a all-new original anime story.

Seeing how in this sequel Seiya is finally a full-time Gold Saint, i would love to see Hyoga, Shiryu and the others appearing as the new Aquarius, Libra, etc. Not holding my breath though..
