Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas - Meiou Shinwa

The "Holy War," a battle fought between the Goddess Athena and the Underworld King Hades, has been taking place since the age of legends. This story takes place in the 18th century - far before the era of "Saint Seiya." It is a new story involving the Pegasus Saints, the Underworld King Hades, and the Goddess Athena! When Hades finishes his giant painting that covers the sky, "The Lost Canvas," it is said that all lives on Earth will be lost. Tenma, who became a Pegasus Saint, wishes to stop his best friend Alone, who was chosen to become a vessel for Hades. Look out for him as he heads for Hades' castle!

I thought some things in the last Hades OAV arcs to the original series needed to be elaborated on and Lost Canvas expands on certain specific aspects. I'd talk about them, but they'd be spoilers to both Lost Canvas... read more

This is my favourite Saint Seiya! The animation is better than in the others. I also prefer this storyline because it gives more credits to the gold saints, the saggitarius saint is still the more important but we actually focus on others such as Taurus, Pisces, Cancer...
