I think Harbinger, for instance, has a high chance of redemption. They might be just misled, and the original series had its fair share of misled Gold Saints who seemed evil and sadist at first (like Milo, Shura and even Shaka). Pretty sure that's gonna happen again, moreso because there's no way the new generation will actually beat about 10 powerful Gold Saints in regular fights.

And Paradox, she has an "evil" side, sure, but that's a staple of Gemini Saints. At least it came up with an interesting twist here, and her confrontation with Ryuhou is enormously original for this franchise, so far.

Mislead? Maybe but how much common sense does it take to protect someone who is actively trying to made their planet a deathstar ala Hades style?

I just want to know, does the Cloths now actively change depending on the gender of the user? Because I'm pretty sure Saga or Kanon wouldn't want to wear the version Paradox is wearing.

Rewatch what Kiki said - Mars plan was to kill Earth but also make Mars (the planet) the new paradise in the process, that's one reason to support him if you happen to think that Earth is so corrupted as to be irredeemable that you need to do a "reset" and keep just a few of the selected elites. Even the old series had a few of these types of characters so I don't see how that's a problem.

Yeah, and the new world Paradox showed Ryuhou is proof that she believes on Mars' intentions and that his changes would be for the better.

Man Kazuki Yao as Taurus Harbinger is making this character so much more epic than he'd be otherwise I have to say. Still how is this task even going to be possible for the group to accomplish. They're up against the absolute strongest Saints in existence after just recently struggling to beat some of the Silver Saints, they have a 12 hour time limit to beat all of them in and reach the top and then still have to find a way to deal with Mars and Medea. All of this while having yet to even scratch the first gold saint who's fight is now going to span 3 episodes. Possible incoming super power boost for all the characters?

That and probably some suicidal moves like Phoenix Ikki and Dragon Shiryu once did to defeat Gold Saints in the original series.

The "power boost" is most likely the Seventh Sense.

I haven't forgotten they don't have them anymore. They're inside the staff Mars stole from Aria.

Yuna vs Schiller seems kind of a repeat of Shiryu vs Death Mask but since Yuna is the best character I will let it slip.

So Umakoshi is doing only the 2nd half of 32. Episodes shared by two animation directors used to happen a lot in the original series.
And we have a potential Ikki appearance on 35.

After all this, can Libra even really do anything to Ryu? Just beating him up will be a comfort.
