I had the impression that in the original SS, things were set in caste

if you are a bronze, that you are a bronze for all your life

and some of the gold saints were truly monsters that attained 7th sense when they were only 6 years old

IIRC, the cloth isn't really THAT important. What matters more is the mastery of cosmo use, which is why some bronze saints can put up a fight against gold saints.

But if I were to guess about powerup in Omega, it's probably similar to how Athena's blood turned those bronze cloth into uber god cloth versions

No, it's definitely possible for one to be promoted from bronze to gold, it's obvious from the way Kurumada had carefully mapped the 5 bronze's birthday to their respective gold constellation - Seiya as a Sagittarius, Shiryu as Libra, Hyoga as Aquarius, Shun as Virgo and Ikki as Leo (ok Ikki's mapping is really odd) that he had at least considered this as a possibility to be used in the story at some point. Also in Next Dimension Kurumada had shown that both Dohko and Shion were promoted from bronze to their respective gold.

The question lies with how one becomes silver, I guess it might actually be possible for someone really strong to skip becoming bronze and go straight to silver, and then again according to their birth dates they can then be promoted to the respective gold constellation if the position is vacant (or perhaps you can even fight for it? it's not like ancient greek culture don't promote duelling either). But whether a bronze can go silver is a big question mark.

I always think that the process of how a saint obtain their cloths is a random thing. A prodigy saint can directly obtain a gold cloth like Virgo Shaka. Seiya became Sagitarius after being Pegasus without ranking-up to Silver first. Shaina directly become Ophiucus (Silver) after her early training. So yeah, I donít think Kurumada thought much about it. He just wrote it as it is which kinda piss me off.

Do you know why we rarely meet a bronze saint who got promoted to silver? That's coz silver sucks (so far) . Those silvers are even more lame in Lost Canvas.

Well I would think it's because for the tournament it wasn't really an "official" rank trail since it was just thought up by Kido, and it was even before Saori knew she was Athena.

Yeah he definitely didn't think too hard about it. It would be good if it is random (then we can all hope that Ikki becomes Gemini lol). It would really SUCK if you are born into the constellation without any chance of ranking up, when it is obvious that the different clothes DO have attack/defence power difference. Like how we were told that different class clothes freezes at different temperatures and all that.

That is so true. The only time we saw a silver saint actually beating someone was during the Hades arc?

Aren't all of the Silver saints except for Marin and Shaina dead?

Also.. I find it impossible to see Ikki as anything other than Phoenix

even getting a gold cloth would be a downgrade

Hey now, Hakurei is a silver saint and he kicks major ass. There was also Orphťe in the original manga, who was said to be even stronger than Gold Saints.

We can't forget the legendary Sagitta Ptolemy either: the man nearly killed a goddess all by himself

How about a large number of Silvers who killed off-page by Bennu Kagaho? Crow was killed by... I donít know (itís not that clear what killed him). Another large number of Silvers also ran with their tails between their legs after their asses were handed to them by a cloth-less Defteros. Even though the characters who owned those Silvers are very powerful, the way Lost Canvas depicted them made them look like real losers.

Yes, there are exceptions like Altair Hakurei and Crane Yuzuriha. They are truly badass characters.

You know I'm surprised how much I'm liking this series even though I have no previous experience with Saint Seiya.

I kind of wish the girl kept wearing her mask though, she looked better with it.

In Kurumada's manga, the Saints are born under a constellation. Though if you are Bronze or Silver you can get promoted to Gold.
Suikyo became a Silver Saint directly.

And there has been no saying that you can get promoted from Bronze to Silver.

Episode 4 goes into the new elemental nature of the cosmo, it's very RPG-ish where fundamentally fire > wind > thunder > earth > water > fire in full circle and light and darkness is outside of the circle, except of course if the wielder has greater cosmo they can overcome the fundamental elemental weakness.

So who won the fight between Kouga and Ryuho?
I seriously hope Kouga gets his first win.

Oh that's a bummer. So far Kouga has only been getting his butt kicked. I wish he will get victory for his next fight.

Well Kouga was poorly trained (he didn't want to learn then), not only that he hasn't got hold of his cosmo yet he also has no knowledge of his elemental power. In this episode they explained that understanding one's own elemental is now essential to become stronger in this new age of Saints (so even Hydra Shi - one of the original 10 bronze saints, is now still a student because he doesn't know his own elemental, I think Shiana is probably not that well versed in elemental power either).

Now Ryuho on the other hand is thoroughly trained (and highly motivated to become strong from early on) and has control of both his cosmo and his elemental power, his ability to read the enemy's flow of cosmo is also a huge advantage, if not for his frail body he is supposed to be the current strongest bronze saint. Even here Ryuho is really going easy on Kouga because what he really wanted to do was to guide Kouga to understand his own cosmo/elemental power, the writers will have to pull some serious thing out of the rear for current Kouga to beat Ryuho.

So, Shiryu lost all five senses. I can't even begin to imagine how it feels . I wonder, can Shiryu "satisfy" Shunrei with his current condition ? If not, then poor Shunrei .

Btw, I have a question, guys. Is Yunaís Aquila is the same as Marinís Eagle constellation-wise? If itís different, then whatís the differences?

Oh, speaking of Eagle Marin, I never thought that Marinís cloth can actually form a constellation (since itís so minimal) until I saw this:

Spoiler for Eagle:
But, with its fat body it looks more like a chicken to me .

Yeah, i'm actually liking that even though Kouga will probably be another "chosen one", he's still shown to be a newbie, slowly learning to fight, and didn't get to win yet. It always bothered me how Tenma, for instance, seemed too overpowered from the get-go.
Heck, Seiya beating Shiryu at the beginning of the original series kind of didn't feel right to me either, and Seiya was way readier than Kouga is right now.
