In Hades Arc, there's still some "evil" saints to fight though (Shion, Saga & co), and after they're done, there's only very few saints left.

In LC, we get LOTS of protagonists to root for, each with different persona & conflict. We also get the feel of a grand army of saints who work together for one goal. That's what unique from LC and I like it very much .

This was a pretty okay episode after they started actually doing something other than eating bread, but really, who came up with the name of that new Yuna technique. Aquila Spinning Predation is like... wow, genius.

Anyway, next week looks like it'll be fun with the arrival of Shun. I do wonder if we'll get to see him fighting, though? Since I've no clue how closely it'll be following past events of the canon. Got to say I'm curious to see how the already controversial Andromeda Cloth will/would look with Omega's design.

The thing i loved about this episode was the Silver Saints.
They are not stupid, not at all.
They don't just fight, they hear what Yuna et Soma said ...

We got confirmation that there are Silver cloths, so they've got some explaining to do regarding the promotion from Bronze to Silver. We're left with two options: cloths can get upranked or saints can change cloths.

The second and third version of the Andromeda Cloth weren't so bad. A clostonized version would probably look similar. Not sure we'll see it. If Shun could still use his cloth and fight, then he would have helped Saori.

Miguel seems pretty damn dumb. He's pretty much your stereotypical Silver saint from the first series. Yohann, on the other hand, was indeed a good character in spite of his horrible design. I enjoyed that Yuna tried to explain the situation to him. Seiya's group never really bothered to clear up the misunderstanding with the Silvers (only with the Golds) and just killed them by the dozens.

Sonia is pretty badass. I hope the other High Martians will be as good looking as her and that woman by Mars' side (his wife? Or a corrupted Saori? What he said about light and darkness while looking at her was intriguing)

Nice teamwork to take out that one silver saint. Lol Sonya being ordered to bring back Athena to only be called back when she's close to finding out her location. Interesting that she also killed Souma's dad.

That's one of my problems with LC. I don't want lots of protagonists, I want a core of well rounded ones with a clear line separating the supporting cast.

And unfortunately LC couldn't portray group fights very well. Like how the mass invasion of the cathedral was a disaster relying on the actions of very few. In modern army terms Athena's forces would be more of a hyper specialized company (not quite battalion numbers).

But I'm talking about the manga, because I didn't watch past the first installment of the animation. I thought the opening wasn't special and I hated the anime look ever since the first promotional poster. I disliked the first peek we got of Kouga as well, but he looks better in the actual Omega episodes. Now I can only hope the design and animation style here can be repurposed for taking a shot at Episode G, my favorite contemporary SS series. It would fit that art style well enough.

I guess LC manga is just like Naruto where there are LOTS of side characters which are more interesting than the main character(s) themselves. And many times, we enter some quests when it’s all about those supporting characters doing what they do. Personally, if the side characters are interesting and it helps move the plot, I don’t mind it at all (even happy with it). As for the “often lost” main characters, In Naruto, we have Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura; in Lost Canvas we have Tenma, Alone, and Sasha.

Yup, saints with their diverse skills are not battalion soldiers. But they do able to work together like when they defend Athena's ship from Garuda Aiakos/Suikyo's army together.

Lol Don’t get your hopes too high, Albafica . Sometimes, high expectations is a sure-kill to our “enjoying a series”. Remember, this is a different Saint Seiya compared to what we had a while ago (Original & LC) .

While I have no doubt of this happening, be careful what you wish for.

Otherwise, we'll get ourselves Wailing Wall ver. Omega.
