Saint Seiya with Hindu Mythology
9 January 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

This was another anime show which I used to watch when I was younger.

When I was a kid, "Saint Seiya" was my favorite anime, being the series which started my love for myths and legends.

And like "Saint Seiya", "Shurato" used mythology as a key component for the plot (In this case, Hindu mythology, while "Saint Seiya" used Greek and Norse myths) and both were good series.

Without being as complex or dramatic as the creation of Masami Kurumada, this was very entertaining to watch. It had likable characters and a good artwork, with a very cool design of armors, which were very elaborate and well made It was a funny series, totally worth-watching.
