I disagree, the three osts have plenty of great tracks. Toshihiko Sahashi is a pretty good composer too. I love how he does different instrumental versions of the opening themes, something rarely seen in modern anime.

Sure it's nothing on par with the original series, but then again, what is. Especially today when most soundtracks are dull as hell.

SSO's ST is above average, it has some very good themes. Is just SS original was overthetop and hard to match.


This season and the previous one... no memorable sound tracks and Kajiura has been recyclin her theme since SAO.

I love the new instrumental versions of Pegasus Fantasy in Omega's OST.

I would be more forgiving for another series, but since Omega is a sequel there's a standard it has to live up to. It's hard to settle for a merely "great" soundtrack when the original was godly and a very big part of what made Saint Seiya an anime classic.

But you have to remember that the original Saint Seiya anime was an adaptation of what was a the time one of the most popular manga in Japan, so it probably had a really nice budget behind it. Omega on the other hand is Toei's quick cash-grab

Better than to spend a large amount adapting Next Dimension and getting nothing back. That already happened with the OVAs, didn't it?

ND material barely makes for a 12 episode series, itll be long before Kurumada starts with the Tenkai hen cuz the current plot is just Kuru doing what he wasn't able to do in the past due the rushed ending of Meikai hen.

Don't know how the Hades Chapter OVA preformed, but I know that the Lost Canvas OVAs did not do well, which is why TMS has no plan for season 3.

When Omega started, the popularity of the Saint Seiya franchise was down once again. The second life that the Lost Canvas manga gave had already ran out, as I said the LC OVA under-performed, the LC gaiden was struggling, and NC and EpG were on hiatus.

The only reason why Toei made Omega is because it was cheap, it has a large fanbase globally, and Toei apparently loves to celebrate anniversaries, just look at the Kamen Rider franchise.

This redesigned Libra cloth looks seriously good. Better than Genbu's version and even the original imo. I love it. If only the other cloths in the second season could look that great. The gems ruin everything.

Wow. The design is nice. I wish they would redesign the Aquarius cloth. I don't like the omega version.

The Aquarias cloth except for the mask, is the same from the manga design, which was a fanart that won a contest and became official.

The title for the CGI movie has been revealed to be "Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary", which seems to imply that it'll be a retelling of the original 12 Houses arc.
