After a long wait, the Hades saga from "Saint Seiya" finally got an animated adaptation: The result was more than satisfying, reuniting all the good classic elements from the original series, with modern animation techniques.
This adaptation was very faithful to the original manga (To the point that there some changes done in comparison with the anime series in order to respect the aesthetic and continuity of the story created by Masami Kurumada) having a great atmosphere, a fascinating new story with many new characters, and a very good character development.
The animation of "Saint Seiya: The Hades Chapter - Sanctuary" was very polished and well done, with a subtle use of digital effects. I liked the fact that the aesthetic of the designs done by Shingo Araki and Michi Himeno in the first anime series was respected, having all the essence of the classic Saint Seiya.
"Saint Seiya: The Hades Chapter - Sanctuary" was a solid start for the Hades saga. The first 13 chapters of this adaptation were the best ones, being a very promising beginning for this epic part of the Saint Seiya story. Totally worth-watching.
