The result: A complete disaster. Instead of making it more famous ala Robotech (the dumbed down version of SDF Macross), that release killed any potential Saint Seiya had to be well accepted in the US market.
Don't feel bad! When we got Saint Seiya here about 20 years ago they also renamed the title to Los Caballeros del Zodiaco, which from Spanish translates directly to Knights of Zodiac.
You want to hear some even bad news?

Back then, they didn't brought to sub the original opening and instead used the Spain sub for the opening, however, they did keep intact the content of all the whole episodes with that I mean the violence and the blood. That was when Saint Seiya got to air in my country through free TV broadcasting.

Ten years later when Saint Seiya started airing on the Latin American Cartoon Network that time they brought and subbed the original opening and ending for the show. Unfortunately, the downside was that they edited and trimmed the content.

Another reason why in my country the board of censorhip sticked with the title "Los Caballeros del Zodiaco" (Knights of Zodiac in English) for the localization was to avoid sensibility issues with replacing the word "saints" for "knights".
Athenas' saints are called Athenas' knights in my country.

Religion forms part of traditional family values in my country and wouldn't have looked good if an anime TV show broadcasted through free TV, where anyone has direct access to, would have advertised that their main characters were actually saints not knights, viewed by children accompanied by their parents.

Why do you think what was the reason we were the only Latin American country in the entire continent that never ever did air Neon Genesis Evangelion on free TV back in late 1990's and early 2000's?

So I've been wondering.. I think I saw Kouga perform Suiseiken in one of the promos

but Suiseiken is a technique Seiya learned from Marin

and Kouga's mentor is supposedly Shaina, not Marin

maybe I should wait for the show to explain but, but I'm still curious

Shain was owned by Seiya in more than one time .

Well then, this means I get to watch 2 of the upcoming shows I'm looking forward to legally. wonder when was the last time this happened with crunchy in recent memory?

@Albafica Well, going by how big Saint Seiya is in Europe and Latin America, I'm guessing that Crunchyroll wasn't able to get the rights due to whoever is holding them in these countries having other plans for the show (probably broadcasting) or release via their own channels). It does suck, but what can you do ...

@Key Board considering that Koga is apparently a Seiya fanboy, and since Shain should have knowledge about the Suiseiken, I don't think it's much of a stretch to imagine that share it with Koga. Well have to wait to see how it goes in the show proper, since Koga might have learned it it on his own or some other explanation.

I haven't watched the original Saint Seiya in forever and barely remember it, but don't got time to rewatch it. Will this be watchable for someone with an incredibly foggy memory of it?

I haven't watched the episode itself, but from what I've seen, I'd reckon so. It doesn't seem to be very related to the past ones aside from some of the old characters popping up. But even those seem like they can be introduced just fine to the new audience, which is probably what they're going for with this different Umakoshi approach!

Anyway, it's on right now, can't wait til it's avaible for watching!

The first episode was aired. I watch first minutes in simucast with Japan TV (Asahi), but it has so much lag, so I give up.
I already watched the first episode at the premiere, but these minutes were really good, the soundtrack is really cool; the music too!

I really want to see it in a good quality. When Raw will be out!!!

I don't know if they've changed their policy recently, but it usually gets moved when subs come out.

You can watch on broadcast!? Oh man. I should have done that.......


@OceanBlue
Oh thanks for the notice. Just by looking the OP, it seems this will be better than Lost Cavas maybe.

First episode was more intense and serious than i was expecting. The action is like the original series on steroids. Excellent.

Having watched the first episode....that won't be a problem, although i think older fans are likely to get more out of this series. For instance, the scene where Shaina loses her cool when Kouga badmouths Seiya has a lot more meaning if you know the characters and what they've gone through.
