The first and the weakest Saint Seiya movie
10 September 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I have been a Saint Seiya fan since my childhood, being one of the first anime series that I've seen in my life. Sadly, none of the movies based in that series could match the same level of epicness and fun that the original Saint Seiya had, having all those movies a very interesting premise, but a very poor and predictable development.

This movie was the first one to introduce the predictable pattern followed by the other "Saint Seiya" movies: A new enemy appears, the new enemy kidnaps the goddess Athena/Saori; Seiya and company went to fight against this new enemy and they battle separately the minions of this new enemy, Andromeda Shun can't fight alone, so he has to be saved by his brother Phoenix Ikki, and at the last moment, when everything seems lost, Seiya uses the Sagittarius Gold Cloth to defeat the new enemy, and Athena and the World are saved. The end.

The most disappointing part is that all those movies start in a very interesting or promising manner, with lots of potential to develop a new and interesting story, but all that potential is wasted in order to follow the formula which I previously described.

There is almost no participation of the secondary characters, only the main heroes and the new enemies introduced for the movie, which sadly doesn't get a very well development since their screen time is way too short and their participation in the story is rushed and forgettable.

In the good side, the music is excellent as always, the designs and the animation were pretty good and the action scenes were decent. Too bad that the plot was so incredibly shallow to make appreciate those virtues.

I only recommend this short movie to the fans of Saint Seiya, since it does have very little interest to anyone else.
