SAINT SEIYA: THE HADES

=======================
INTRODUCTION:
=======================


Hi there everybody, how are you doing!? hope you are fine... I've decided this time to post a thread about Saint Seiya, as we all know Saint Seiya is one of the most popular animes around the world... Saint Seiya The Hades saga is the best saga in entire Saint Seiya History, the OAV contains 13 episodes for Sancutry chapter then there will be more episodes for the Hades world (Underworld) chapter but yet nothing confirmed... Well I saw the 13 OVAs and what I can say... Well it's just the greatest OVA I've ever seen, I am not saying it because it's Saint Seiya but because it's really a very good show really... Saint Seiya started out in 1986 as a manga by Masami Kurumada and published in Shonen Jump, and have been reprinted in book form by Shonen as well. In October of 1986 Saint Seiya showed up on Japanese TV as an animated series produced by Toei Doga... Also Kuramada published the Saint Seiya Hades Manga as well but now after years of waiting and waiting, Now they finally animated this great manga and brought as the OVA Saint Seiya Hades: Chapter Sanctuary in 13 OVAs, that was really just like a dream to Saint Seiya's fans but luckily they animated the Hades Manga... well guys I wanna say that I took some informations from some French, Italian, English, Spanish's web sites related to Saint Seiya so thanks refers to them, also thanks refers to Silver Dragon for the characters story I learned their story and edited or took some words from here and there to collect the characters' story and proiles... You can find alot of informations about Saint Seiya in many Saint Seiya's sites but sadly most of the sites are not in english, mostly are French, anyway I would like to thanks them for their help because I knew more about Saint Seiya so thanks... So now let's get going...



=====================
MY REVIEW:
=====================


The story: 10/10
The characters: 10/10
The Animation: 10/10
The musics: 10/10
Voice Cast: 10/10
Overall: 10/10


THE STORY:
Well some of you may don't like the story if they don't like the deep stories, I mean Saint Seiya have a really very big and deep story, the story based on Greeks legends and other mythologies along with other cool stuff, about temples, saints and their lords...etc I know this sometime might be boring but yet the story is very deep and very cool at the same time, if you watched Saint Seiya before you will notice the different between the Hades saga's story and the other sagas of Saint Seiya, since the story is about ressurection of Hades's and his specters, going to underworld facing monsters or group fighters, helping each others, betrayers...etc Fighting for future of the world as everybody thinks, but yet it's not only this, it's deeper than this, I can't say anything more since they didn't released the ova's but I have been reading the manga since years, and the manga story and the OVA are the same, and I guess it's the best... The story is about the ressurection of Hades the king of the underworld along with his armies, who want to kill the queen Athena to get rid of her and to become the only leader in the universe, so the warriors have to do something to help her and defend her even if it costs them their own lives so that's the beginning of the biggest story... Also reviving some of the of the dead saints like the Gold Saints, Saga, Camus, Shura and Shion along with the Silver Saints just like Misty, Argol...etc I guess the story is new since you really don't know who is the bad one and who is the good one if you don't know the old story it will be pretty hard to understand just like me when I first saw it... I mean sometimes you see the bad guys are killing and doing bad things then at the other hand you see them that they are sad for killing and for losing their old friends from the old saga...etc also the good ones are fighting the good ones just for unknown reasons just like helping, training them and things like this... I really have nothing else to say and I can't say anything more but as for me The Hades saga is the best saga and you have to watch this part of Saint Seiya because you will be amazed for sure, and the story is very cool and I like it more than anything else, there are fighters who fight for themselves, fighters who fights for justice some for evils and some for their friends, you will see different kind of fighters...etc I am sure many of you gonna like the story...


THE CHARACTERS:
As we all know Saint Seiya have alot of characters, more than 50 characters, and more than 15 main characters... There are alot of groups and each group have at least one or more cool fighter, Saint Seiya features all type of characters, the emotinal, the serious, the funny and even the bad ones as well... In respect to other animes but still I guess I can't find any anime that have cool characters like the characters in Saint Seiya's series... As for me I would like to give it a full rate for the characters since they have my favorite type of character of all time just like Saga, if you saw it from the beginning I am sure you will like this guy too, he is kinda a sad character and that's my type of character who is always cold, sad, strong and also sometimes you see him fighting for evils, sometimes for justice and sometimes for himself, there are many characters like Saga in the series, we also have Kanon, his twin brother, once were a servent of Posiedon and now a saint of Athena's saints and fights for the justice, he also have very great moves, and most of all the Hades Saga features and shows the great Wyvern Radamanthus, he is one of my favorite character too and I always wished to see him in an anime type while I was reading the manga because these are the ones who I always wished to see in the anime... There are many other cool characters such as Shaka, Milo, Shiryu, Ikki...etc I can't name all of them because there are too much and I like almost everyone of them, even the heroes are pretty cool unlike other animes, I admit I usually like the villains but in this great series I also like the heroes too, I can name some of them like the Dragon Shiryu or Pheonix Ikki along with the gold heroes just like Mu, Aioria, Milo...etc The best thing that Saint Seiya have groups, just like Golden Saint Group which have characters of themselves, Silver Saints, Bronze Saints, Steel Saints, Specters...etc you will also amaze after watching their great cloths, such an amazing designs on the characters, also don't forget that each character have his own speciality and have elements such as Wind element, Sun Element, Dark Element, Fire, water...etc Also the main villain have alot of great servents and he is a pretty cool villain, his name is Hades of course... Just see their stories and I am sure you are going to like these amazing characters... I know some of you might say if there are girls or not! Well they also have female fighters like Marin and Shina, also some villain females and Saori (Athena) is a female too, so both of girls and boys gonna like Saint Seiya's characters oh yeah not to forget that there is also old ones and kids just like Kiki, Master Dokho... You all find all type of characters that's why I like the series... I have nothing else to say but Saint Seiya features the best characters...


THE ANIMATION:
Saint Seiya The Hades chapter has the coolest animation I've ever seen in animes, I know there are other animes have cool animation just like Sprited Away, Blood The Last Vampire, X...etc but this one is the best in my opinion, they use alot of anime style 3D which give it the cool effects, also not to forget that the graphics looks soooooooooo cool, you just see the old ones and see the Hades OAV and you will notice the different between them, thanks to the OVA's group... Also the anime have alot of great backgrounds effects and there is no more same scene, they have used the computer stuff perfectly and I appreciate their efforts, just see when Milo fights against Kanon, man you will notice how the animation looks also don't forget to see the scene when Seiya transforms with his armors, man they used 3D on this and that's why it came out so good...The fighting scenes are pretty cool, it still has the old school feelings, but better effects had been implemented. I love the way how Seiya did his Pegasus Meteor Punch on Cancer Death Mask, itĺs a must see! Not to mention about Shiryu doing his moves as well... And the best of all when Saga do his super attack "Glaxian Explosion" just see and for sure you will be speechless, Man I can't say anything more you just see and you will know what I mean...


THE MUSICS:
Well I don't know what to say about this but as we all know Yokoyama Seiji was behind this, this mean for sure Saint Seiya's musics will be very cool... I think that Saint Seiya have the saddest musics of all time in anime world, they have a very cool musics, the openning and the ending, also not to mention the sad musics when Aldebran die or when Milo attacks Kanon, when Shaka's fight against Saga and co, when and when... Man the music outta there was very sad and I like it sooooo much as you all know I like sad musics, to your knowledge Saint Seiya not only have sad musics but they have other cool musics just like Pegasus Fantasy, Harp's them...etc I really can't wait anymore for the Hades World Chapter... I am sure you are going to like Saint Seiya's musics especialy the ones in the Hades chapter, but yet I miss Abel's sad theme, not to mention when Orpheous plays his music, I can't imagine that... Saint Seiya series have alot of great musics done by great artists so you can accept anything from them... Oh you might be asking if they still have the old musics from the old series! Yeah they have it, you can hear the old musics in the new series and that's pretty cool, since they still use their old stuff ot run the anime, I am done here you just go and hear then tell me what you think Wink


VOICE CAST:
Saint Seiya's seiyuu and voice actors are the greatest ones and the most popular ones, the voices are very cool and suites the character and his style, I mean just hear Rhadamanthys's voice (Koyasu Takehito), man as you know Rhadamanthys is a pure evil and his voice is damn pure evil too Very Happy not to mention that Pegasus Seiya is voiced by the same man who voiced Amuro, he also voiced Hiroshi for Jeeg, Kyosuke for Orange Road, and Tuxedo Mask for Sailor Moon. Dragon Shiryuu is also voiced by the man who voiced Bright Noah, Shingo from Goshogun and of course Haran Banjo. Andromeda Shun is also voiced by the same man who voiced Vegita from DBZ and also Kou Uraki and that dude who is trying to be like girls from Dancougar who loved Shapiro so much. And I like the most of all is Saga's voice actor, Okiayu Ryoutarou... There are many other great voice actors we've heard their voice at many other series, also Kanon's voice is very cool kinda remind me of the same actor of Raven from Virus Buster Serge... I don't think I can find a better voice actors and suites the character as well very easily, of course that's my opinion, everybody has his own opinion... But I am sure you will like these screams and shouting... Saint Seiya Hades's features the biggest names for the voice actors such as Koyasu Takehito, Okiayu Ryoutarou, Furuya Tohru, Suzuoki Hirotaka, Kusao Takeshi, Ikeda Shuuichi, Namba Keiichi, Tobita Nobuo ...etc All I have to say that they are the best...


OVERALL:
Well the new Saint Seiya Hades OVA is my favorite anime at the current time, so what can I say!? I can only give it the full rating and I guess it's really deserves the full credits, I know some of you might not like the new series that's maybe because he don't know the story and what happened before, but if you watch it chapter after chapter I am sure you will like it so much, as I said before Saint Seiya is perfect almost at everything, for the story, I don't think I can find a better story than Saint Seiya's great and big story or maybe it's only me... I also like stories which are originally legends & mythology... As for the characters, Saint Seiya features many cool characters, there are many of them just like Saga, Rhadamanthys, Ikki, Mu, Milo, Shakka, Camus, Shura...etc where can I find these great characters in other animes, I know that every anime have at least one cool characters but Saint Seiya have not only one or two or three, they have many of them and more than 20 cool characters of course it's a personal opinion so don't blame me for saying these words... As for the animation, I can't say anything but the animation and the graphics are very cool and well done especially when they show fighting scenes and fast movements scenes, as for the musics, we all know how it's great and there is no need to say anything more, if you like sad and old style musics then this will be your choice I guess... The anime also have a very cool style for their fighting scenes, characters...etc along with cool voice actors and most popular or biggest names in the anime world...etc what else should be said, I know whatever I saw or how much I will write there will ton of words that can be said about this great show... Even it's only 13 OVA but yet I prefer to series of 100 episodes or more, I am not just saying because a Saint Seiya fan but because it's really the greatest anime I've ever watched... I have nothing else to say but Guys you have to watch this great series and I am sure you will like and you wont lose anything by watching it...

well, I applaud you for putting so much effort and detail in the synopsis for that anime. At first I thought you were mad for writing such a novel on a forum. However, I then thought that I'd probably be dedicated enough to do the same for Juuni Kokki. .... *twitch*

I'll keep Saint Seiya in mind. I've so much manga and anime to consume I'm not sure where to begin.

Well you can say that... If someone wrote this big I think you should know it by yourself that the anime deserve it and deserve more really, you may ask Saint Ceaser or any other fan of Saint Seiya... Well I don't know but begin with Saint Seiya Very Happy hehe just kidding...

Waw ... What a comprehensive profiles coverage ... Great ... What an effort ...

I have something to add ... About Ares The War Lord. I have read a Saint Seiya side story (if I'm not mistaken from Mu's corner website - It was a long time ago), which is "The prolog of Sanctuary Chapter : Excalibur Secret Tale Saga! Melody of Desire" - and it's not a fan fic. I think you haven't read it.

There, I found out "Ares" character was not the The War God as we thought all this time, instead he is a person name ... guess who ? Pope's brother ...

After I read the story (To me, the story gives the best explanation on what really happened in Sanctuary before the attempt of Saga to kill baby Athena. It was a prolog), now I know what the connection between : 'Shion The Pope - Ares - Saga' Triangle Case --- If you haven't read it, better see it by yourself (far better than I write it here ... you will be touched by it).

Other things that I found really interesting and give an emotional attachment to myself is ... apparently, AIOROS and SHURA was best friends a long time ago before the tragedy of Aioros' death .... Oh, Toei should have filmed this story ...



To Animal4890 (#469), if you are interested in Saint Seiya series, please don't start directly to "The Hades Chapter" --- It's better to begin from 'The sanctuary Chapter", then to "Asgard Chapter" and "Poseidon Chapter". After you graduate Smile then you are entitled Very Happy to go "The hades Chapter" ... Start from the beginning, you will know the chronology and emotional connection and conflict between characters. That's the best way to enjoy 'Saint Seiya'. No the other way around.

I hope you will like this series like we, saint Seiya fans from all over the world.

Well it's pretty strange to know that Ares was Shion's brother, it's really a surprise, I mean I don't think Shion have a brother, even though his brother is a Silver Saint!! as we all know Ares is the lord of war but yet this story have some cool explanation Wink but I need an explaination something about Saga!! Well if Saga wasn't being controlled by Ares then why in the hell he wanted to kill the Pope for no reasons!!? I don't think Saga by himself wanna only rules!!? So why he did this!? he killed Ares already!!? Why he will do such a thing and if he was evil then how he wear a Gold Cloth!!? As for the Shura and Aioros's story well I guess it's cool and gives us the best explaination, because Shura says the same thing in Episode G, he don't like to kill Aioros because Aioros is just like a brother to him and he can't accept the idea that Aioros is a traitor!? So he didn't killed Aioros but only injured his leg, that's what I heard from the people who translated Episode G for me...

Well It will be a damn good if they filmed this one even only one OVA is enough, I mean the story of Shura along with his friend Aioros but what about Saga!!? Why he is evil!? That's what I wanna know because Saga isn't really evil!? Anyway thanks alot man for your cool comment as always, I really enjoy reading your replies, see you around man and hope to see you again...


Animal:
Just as what Donald said Wink go for it man...

As Dohko said in the Sanctuary Chapter in some last episodes (If I'm not mistaken), Saga suffered a double (dual) personality syndrome. That's why he had a good and evil personality. His good personality deserved him the Gold Cloth.


I think I agree more with the opinion that there was no 'Ares The War Lord' in the Sanctuary Chapter, just the Saga's dual personality conflict in progress where the bad one have won, so that Saga became the 'traitor' pope.


As for wanting to be the Pope, I think it's normal that Saga wanted it. A normal person (especially, as an Athena's saint) who wants to have a better contribution/ achievement/self-actualization in his life. In the Sanctuary, there is no better actualization of that than becoming The next Pope. so did Aioros. But the difference is that the 'good personality' Saga and Aioros would have wanted to achieve that only in a sportive and legal way.
Too bad, the 'Bad personality' Saga moved faster than both of them (let alone, Kanon had already 'burnt' the oil in Saga's personality conflict).


Well, unfortunately ... I haven't read Episode G, so I don't know what the latest development in the Sanctuary pre-Aioros' death. If Shura only injured Aioros' legs, then who actually caused Aioros' death ? He-he-he Smile This is getting more interesting.

Well I already know that Saga suffered fighting himself but why he is fighting if nobody is controlling him, in the anime we knew that was because of Ares!! well I really don't know but maybe I am weird but it's kinda strange, because I wanna what makes Saga is evil and I heard he is 100% pure and loyal to Athena but his evil side is taking the control... And damn is Ares wasn't controlling Saga then how in the hell he beat the hell out of Ikki and Seiya, I guess he was the strongest of the Gold in the Sanctuary's Chapter...

Yeah of course everybody wishes for higher ranking...etc but yet we saw in the anime how Saga was suffering and killed himself but not to touch Athena!! Hmmm I am wondering why he have 2 sides!!? Maybe because of Kanon's words or something like that, yeah for me too the story gives a good and cool explaination but yet there are some questions ringing in my head!!?

Well as for the Episode G yeah I still don't know who caused Aioros's death but don't worry I am gonna ask this question, because they said Shura only hurt his le!! and the armies were no match for Aioros!! Well can't give a correct answer yet Very Happy and thanks for posting again... See ya around man!?

(1) Oh, I think I understand what you mean, Dark Dragon Lord ... It seems that you thought that two personalities in Saga was like a normal person (like all of us Very Happy ) ... a person who has good side or bad side ... It's not like that on Saga case ... In Saga's body, there are 'Two Persons' trapped in one body (Two Sagas in one body). One person is 'a good Saga' (with blue hair), the other is 'a bad one' (with grey hair). They waged a war all the time inside his body. Unfortunately, the bad one often won. Kanon just made an advantage of that for his interest (maybe to make Saga become insane and commit suicide, so he can be the next Gemini).


[Too bad. I don't know the psychological term about this Saga case]


And it proved ... the time when The 'Bad' Saga tried to put an end to Athena Saori in the final episode of 'The Sanctuary Chapter', all of a sudden, The 'Good' Saga took control. To save Athena's life, He chose to kill himself.


After Saga's physical body died (my opinion Smile ), the 'two souls' of Saga was separated forever (It seems like a way to purify the soul). They took their own path to the next life. That's why in 'Hades Chapter' we've already had only 'One-personality' in Saga (not mixed-up like before). Do you agree with my thought ?


[This case is like one in the movie "Identity" where John Cusack and Ray Liotta stars. Have you seen it ?]


(2) As for Ares incarnation. Smile , I still think that there is no 'Ares The War Lord' incaranated in Saga's body. But of course, if you have more information about that, we can discuss it.

Maybe, one argumentation that support the existence of Ares is the 1st Movie "The Battle With Eris" ... The Goddess Eris wanted to take revenge to Athena for Ares' Death ... But so far, I never include movies into the Saint Seiya's true chronology because it's so twisted when we try to sequence it ... Maybe I try to make a special post about it (with other 3 movies) some time.


But for the good test ... Let's wait for "The Next Hades Chapter : The Hell Chapter" where Seiya met with the Silver Saint 'Orpheus Lyra'. Will they know each other or not at that time ? Have Orpheus ever gone out from Underworld to join Eris all this time (I don't think so) ? If they don't, it means we have to omit 'The Battle with Eris' in Saint Seiya's time sequence chronology ...


(3) I really hope you can find more information about Aioros' death ... It could change the way we thought about his death story ... O, I still haven't found 'Episode G' until now.

That's my opinion ... I really hope that other members in this forum can share their opinions too ...

Hallo Allan, welcome to this board ... Very Happy

of course, the 13 episodes of "The Hades Chapter : Sanctuary" (if I'm not mistaken your question) don't conclude ... It's still far far away from a conclusion ...

There are still next parts of Hades Chapter : "The Hell" and "The Elyssion" ... Episode 13 is only the transition phase to the upcoming 'The Hell Chapter" where Seiya and his friends are ready to enter the underworld to catch up with Athena Saori and Virgo Shaka to stop Hades.


That's my answer ... Please join us in more Saint Seiya topics ... Nice to meet you ... Very Happy

Hi Donald and Dark Lord Dragon, i'm back...
Well, I see that both had been talking about Saga's Behaviour...so, I have my own opinion about the matter:
-In think that the double personality that Saga had to deal with, is due by the time he imprisoned Kanon in the high-and-low-tide-sea-prison. Then, he though (Saga) that Kanon will be dead for sure, but Saga didn't wanted to kill Kanon, but also he was trying to do his duty that is was to protect Athena by all means, even if he has to kill his own brother. So he felt very guilty about that and started to go mad, so mad that he ended transforming in Kanon himself. I mean that when Saga turns evil, it means that he is imitating Kanon's personality because of the regret that he feel in his heart due to the execution of him (Kanon) by his own hands.
-In other words: Saga was a schizophrenic man tormented by the death of his brother. Let me recall that Saga never notice that Kanon was indeed alive living under the sea wearing the Sea Dragon's Cloth; Saga realized that Kanon was "alive and kicking" in The Hades Chapter, for that he (Saga) doesn't need to feel more regrets about it.

So, that crap of "Ares is controlling Saga" is bullshit.
And (answering the Donald's post) Orpheus, the Silver Saint of Hades, is not the same guy from the Movie 1. All the movies of Saint Seiya are crap too that doesn't make sense in the plot of Saint Seiya. THANKS.

Hi again, Saint Caesar ... Good review ....


This Saga's personality problem is indeed a very interesting topic ... Yes, My opinion and yours seems little different - Mine : Saga has 'double soul/persons' in one body - already existed since he was born and evil Kanon just took benefit from it and yours : Saga experienced a very hard trauma that splitted his personality ... Ha-ha-ha, at least we agree that there is no Ares in this matter...


I like your review. It broadens my point of view in Saga's case ... How about it, Dark Lord Dragon ? Do you agree ?


I hope we can have more opinion from other members, so that we're getting closer and closer to the truth reason ... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Donald:

Hi there again man... What's up! yeah I really thought Saga was a normal person just like everyone but never thought there were two, I know there were two but not 2 different persons, now I got it! I know it sounds stupid that I didn't know till now n_n; anyway thanks for the informations and for giving me the right explaination... I guess your right there is no Ares, the warlord even though Eris said it in the first movie, but as many people said the first movie is just a side story and doesn't fit in the Saint Seiya storyline... You know what, it will be very good if they make OVA for Saga and Kanon's story, I mean their childhood and how they were together then things have changed and Kanon became evil...etc untill Saga kills the pope, this will be a good one really... Lol all this time I thought the grey haired Saga was Ares lol Very Happy

As for your thought man I agree with you 100% it gives the best explaination to why Saga doesn't have the bad side, just like what happened in the 3rd movie as I heard when Apollo revive the Gold Saints... Man I really like Saga with one personality it makes him just damn cooler than being the evil one... As for the film you mentioned sorry I didn't see it yet...

You know why I think the first movie is just a side story is because when Shun and Seiya cross by Orphee they don't remember they fought him before, I mean Shun but they only know that he is the legendary silver saint, so I think the first movie is just a side story... Man I really can't wait for the next chapter, I heard they are going to release it in November 2004 it means one year after, it's too long but yet it's better than nothing, so we can just wait and see Wink man I am wishing more than 13 OVAs ^^

As for Aioros's death, sadly no more informations yet, because the manga didn't finish yet and I am waiting for the next chapter then I am gonna ask the French's people to translate it so I will know how he has died... Yeah I've forgotten to tell you, in Episode G there is a special story for Saga the name is: "Legend Of Saga" which they say Saga's story and about his attacks which can destroy Galaxies and cut the space...etc And they don't say anything related to Ares, the warlord... So I guess what you just said was right Wink anyway sorry for bothering you man and hope to see you again...


Allan:
Hi there dude, how are you doing!? I am very glad to see someone new saw the Hades's Chapter, well Donald already answered your question Wink this is just the beginning of the Hades's Chapter, there are some more and we are hoping to see the next chapters as fast as possible... Pleased to meet you and we are waiting you here... See ya around


Saint Caessr:
Hi there man, what's up! Well I kinda agree with what you just said, because I've been reading some fan fictions and it really gives me the best explainations, it's that Saga always dreamed of being a Gold Saint fighting for Athena but his twin brother Kanon doesn't cared about Athena much and always wished to be the ruler or something like that... And as you said, Kanon betrayed Athena...etc so he must be killed now, Saga knew if Shion knew about Kanon's betrayer he will for sure gonna kill him, but Saga loved his brother and couldn't get the idea of his brother being killed so he just prisoned him there not to punish him, but to let him think again and maybe he will be back as normal and not evil... So I guess what you just said is really close to the truth... But Donald said that Saga suffering of his bad side but his bad side awaken because of Kanon, because he liked him so he did what Kanon just said and maybe that's why Saga turned like this... As we saw in the Hades's chapter when Kanon gives the box for Saga, man it was very sad moment when Saga looks at his brother but Kanon turned his face sadly, man it was very touching T_T So I don't think they hate each others even what they did before...

Well maybe somebody ask why Kanon turned evil, well I think it's because as someone before said, is he killed the master of Saga (A bad guy who didn't like Saga at all) as we know Saga dreamed to be a gold saint but this guy didn't allow him to do so, so Kanon killed him, then Shion knew about this and since Kanon wasn't old enough he didn't kill him but he kicked Kanon from being a saint, which mean he never ever can be a saint and that maybe why he wanted to kill Saga to be a saint, but I am not sure but I just read some fan fictions about their past so maybe these stuffs gives us a good explainations... So now I think you both are right that Ares doesn't have anything to do with Saga even though many people thought so lol... But I don't think so now...

Well I wish if there are some more members so everybody gonna post his own opinion, it's kinda strange I saw alot of people wrote a review about Saint Seiya Hades in the site but they don't post >_< anyway I am pleased to see you two are still here and that's good enough to have hardcore fans Wink see ya around guys...
