There are quite a few fictional characters named Harbinger...and given the word's meaning, it's not really surprising.

Really?

Well, it’s still a very strange name for a guy to me (unless it’s only a nickname or last name). Heck, I found the name Doomsday for a (alien) character in Superman comics kinda ridiculous. It sounds more like a name for an object, like Allspark for example. I don’t know which is worse for an actual person's name, Deathmask or Harbringer.

in LC his real name is Rasgado (it does seem like Hasgard though), but his "Gold Saint" name is Aldebaran D:

Piscis Cardinale, Cancer Death Toll, Leo Kaiser, Virgo Shijima, Capricorn Izo, Gemini Cain/Abel are some of the names from Shion and Dohko's era.

Harbinger has the meaning of "messenger".

Btw, some of my friends says they don't care how Taurus is named for them Taurus always be the Kenny of the series.

Somehow I think after the events of episode 26 and 27 that Sonia and Eden are going to bolt and defect at the first possible opportunity. Neither of them have much reason to stick around with and put up with their parents bullshit after all that was revealed and transpired in that climax and pretty much every reason to want to resist their increasingly shameless cruelty.

One of the reveals that did surprise me though is that Sonia was indeed the one that killed Soma's dad who was basically caught off guard in refusing to fight what he saw as a harmless child. She obviously acted on instinct and doesn't seem to have enjoyed the moment of the kill so much as have been traumatized by it, but I don't think that should give her an out by any stretch and I think if she and Eden were to defect they're going to have to do a lot to make amends and to get the saints to completely trust them. One has to wonder though how both of them can have normal human emotions while Mars is such an evil bastard. Maybe they aren't really Martians at all and were never his kids...I mean there's a lot that doesn't add up here about the Martian side of the conflict that I'm sure has yet to be completely revealed.

Oh and one other thing I noticed, what seems to be one of Umakoshi's trademark visual cues that also appeared a lot in Casshern Sins and was even the title of the opening song seems to make an appearance in this episode again. The Blue Flower (Aoi Hana).

Spoiler for Aoi Hana:

Yeah, Kurumada is clearly not that good in naming some of his fictional characters. I was reminded of Sphinx Pharaoh from Hades Inferno arc *shiver* .

Yup, thats strange alright. I guess the one resembling a proper name for Taurus is only Aldebaran, unless Taurus Oxs real name is Oxley .

Yeah, DC comics had an Harbinger, it was also a main character in Mass Effect 2, pretty sure there are others, just google it.

I agree, and i have the feeling there's a lot about Medea that we don't know yet. She's the most mysterious character, and it's interesting how she's inspired by greek mythology, unlike Mars. i wonder is there's a reason for that.

Another possible untold story may come from the fact she's not Sonia's mother, and the series was sure to make it clear.

I seriously doubt Eden will defect before a rematch with Kouga. I bet Medea will brainwash him into blaming Kouga for Aria's death. We have yet to see much of her witch powers, after all.

Nah, he's daddy's boy. Something bad would have to happen to him before he changes his mind. He withstood Aria being in prison and his stepsister getting injured for his advancement.

Or a blue rose.

Given Medea's past in mythology, Mars is prob using her.

First shot of Genbu wearing the Libra Gold Cloth. Seems like he's using the weapons to fight.

New opening is pretty stylish.
Judging by its scenes, it seems like Sonia will be a major character...i was wondering recently if the fact Medea wasn't her mother could be relevant, so her unknown origins may indeed play a big role.

This episode was very Saint Seiya indeed.
