Default Saint Seiya Omega - first impression

After I saw the first episode, my first impression is the worst Saint Seiya anime. I've considered The Lost Canvas (prequel) as step down in comparison to the '80s original series. This is not another step down, it's fall all the way to the ground on the face. Is it just my imagination or the art is getting worse with each Saint Seiya franchise release?

I really love the art direction, but it's definitely different.

Haven't watched Omega, but I honestly can say that Lost Canvas is WAY better than the original. It is much more war-like, and much more crazy as well.

The only thing I find the original has better than LC is Pandora. The original one was WAY better than this one that can look like an old woman sometimes.

I just watched the first episode and I think this show is to Saint Seiya as Gundam AGE is to Gundam Wing.
Don't get me wrong, I like the new style, its' refreshing but I'm sure most people will feel betrayed because this one looks too simple and childish. It probably won't surprise anybody that the author of the original Saint Seiya is not involved in this project.
Also, it may be just me but Koga reminds me of Takuto from Star Driver :P

Is it only the art style that makes you think it's more childish, or the story/characters as well? (I've never seen anything else from this franchise)

I know It sound like recollection of good ol' times, when everything was great. Also I know that many Saint Seiya fans like The Lost Canvas. However for me The Lost Canvas pushed too hard on "epicness" to the point where it felt cheesy.

I was talking about the art style. It's too soon to talk about the story or the characters.

Don't know what the think of this after one episode, it doesn't seem too terrible so I guess I can manage to watch it's whole run if it keeps it with this somewhat average ordeal.

You can't really judge a show by the animation. I'm watching both Gundam Seed and Age right now. I'm annoyed by how similar they are.
