Ronin Warriors and Saint Seiya share many common aspects. There are 5 main warriors in both series, and all of the warriors wear armors/clothing that gives them special powers and abilities. The main difference is that Saint Seiya relates to Greek Mythology whereas Ronin Warriors deals with the Japanese culture. I can assure you that if you liked one you're definitely going to want to take a look at the other!
Both series are about a small group of warriors who wear magical armor, said armor not only provides special protection but it also allows them to make magically empowered attacks. The characterizations of the characters in each series are also remarkably similar.
Ronin Warriors and Saint Seiya have many characteristics in common. Both have 5 main heros that have special armors that gives them power to defeat thier enimes.
The differences between them is that Saint Seiya is about the cosmos, each armor has a diffrent attribute, while Ronin Warriors tends to have the elements of the earth. They each have diffrent story plots but if you are one of the old school anime wachers then if you liked one you would like the other.
Saint Seiya and Ronin warriors are both about groups of 5 warriors who get their power from the suits of armor that they wear. Both series aired in the late 80's and the animation style is also very similar.

Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?
Both shows look at the homoeroticism and camaraderie between males. The bloody nature and the passion shown in both shows are also powerful forces to be reckoned with. Berserk owes a lot to the suspense it creates, and the way it does it to Saint Seiya.

Yet another one of Kurumada sloppy works, featuring lots and lots of repetitive action and lots and lots of plot holes.
It isn't all that bad, though, if you come to terms with the need of having a decent if not satisfatory script and enjoy a show where the main characters keep trashing goonies and bosses with the same attack over and over again...
Life can be tough when you're a teenager. Enter Tsukino Usagi, an average, if somewhat clumsy, junior high student whose voracious appetite for sweets and capacity for tears are offset by her enthusiasm for life. Her normal existence is suddenly turned upside down when a talking cat named Luna comes into her life. Suddenly, Usagi finds herself with the ability to transform into the superhero known as Sailor Moon. Fighting the occasional monster may be the least of her worries, though...
Sailor Moon credits Saint Seiya as an inspiration in creating the first SENTAI Mahou Shoujo series. Both shows feature a main cast of 5, and both have big story arcs to keep you coming back for more to see how it all works out. Sailor Moon is based on planets and their myths. Saint Seiya does the same with Greek and a few other mythologies. The main cast of Saint Seiya are 5 saints who fight to protect Athena. They have similar themed powers as the Sailor Soldiers (Water/Ice, Fire, Chains and a few thunder attacks). The lead character is a little rashed and doesn't really think before taking action (like Usagi). One of the enemies, Fenrir has a pack of wolfs as his companions and the leader bares a crescent moon on his forehead. Zoisite shares a voice actor with Aphrodite (another gay character whose gender was altered in a dub). When Ziosite asks to die beautiful in the anime, the roses that surrround him are very similar to Aphrodite's death scene in Saint Seiya.
