Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas - Meiou Shinwa 2nd Chapter

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!

In this installment, picking up from where the last series leaves off, there is more at stake, more danger, and it gets progressively darker but yet exciting at the same time. Though Tenma is officially the main character, the 3 acts that this story centers more around 3 gold saints. 

The 3 gold saints are Manigoldo, the Cancer saint, El Cid, the Capricorn saint, and Sisyphus, the Sagitaurrius... read more

So this review for This part and the 2nd. This was my first Saint Seiya series to watch and may explain why the ending was weird to me, because it was just a weird ending. All in all though the storyline was intriguing and well done. I will undoubtly watch other Saint Seiya. read more
