Synopsis:

In a world where Gods reincarnate themselves into the bodies of humans, Athena is the Guardian of Earth. Together with her 88 Saints, she must protect the Earth against other gods whose sole purpose is to take over her position and extend their realm; it has been so for thousands of years. In this age, Athena, along with her Bronze Saints Seiya, Shiryu, Ikki, Hyoga and Shun, will have to counter the evil plans of a traitor amongst her midst who rejects her identity and nominates himself as the sole lord of Athena’s Saints. Being the only ones behind the true Athena, Seiya and the others will have to battle their way through countless Saints to unmask this impostor.

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!

Drahken

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.

Gwape

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.

Kogoruhn

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.

Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball Z

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation.  Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction?

Here you have young warriors who always have the odds against them but never give up and they´re always ready to face any enemy that threatens to destroy the Earth. Team work and perseverence are the key to victory.

SS and DBZ are very similar, as both have that old-school anime element to them. Just like in BBZ, In SS the saints overcome the odds for relying on their emotions and reach unpresedented powers.

Porphyreus

Arion and Saint Seiya are both wonderful adventurous animes based on the Greco-Roman mythology, with similar animation. I'm glad I found Arion in this website as it is really rare, definitely not a masterpiece, but very entertaining.

Berserk

Berserk

Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. 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.

B't X

B't X

His brother Teppel pursues them, but is wounded in a battle with an old adversary. Beat and bleeding, Teppel's blood ends up wakening B't X, one of the most powerful B't who just so happens to belong to Teppel's teacher. Can Teppel convince X to fight with him and help rescue his brother?

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...
