Who was the best gold saint, and why was it Kanon?
I liked the one who had the Leo armor.
But that's maybe cause my zodiac as a kid was Leo.
But if I recall he had honor and was strong and helped the others so he might actually be cool.
God tier: Shaka
Everyone else tier: Everyone else
Man it felt good to be a Virgo and have that motherfucker champion the cause.
Leo was basically the Seiya of his generation
>the best gold saint
G Saga aside, Aiolia was never a punch bag that somehow scored a win after screaming Muh Saori!!! With that alone Aiolia was never the Seiya of his time, he was superior. The only Seiya I can stand is the Omega incarnation, now that's what getting older and wiser is all about.
Kanon was the only Gold Saint who meant shit in the end, he was the last Gold Saint to die.
Feels awesome sharing my birthday with Shaka
Harbinger rose to top 5 at least
>childhood phase where everyone was obsessed with this shit
>friends' favourite characters matched their star signs
>look for my own
>it's the fucking crab guy
>m-maybe he's a badass
>evil coward and dies easily
Which one played music that made you hallucinate?
Watch Lost Canvas, Cancer is the GOAT there
>Lost Canvas Cancer
>Not Next Dimension Cancer
He got better later. He has great a great design too.
OT, Saga is the GOAT gold knight.
>The only Seiya I can stand is the Omega incarnation
I must be the only SSfag that got it backwards. I've always liked Seiya, even when my classmates hated him, but I just can't get into omega Seiya. It was supposed to be a team work but Seiya Sue shit over the entire SS universe. If I didn't know Kobayashi never watched SS, I'd think she was a rabid Seiya fangirl, maybe the only one.
Which gold saint was paired with andromeda before his brother came to save him?
Pic related I think.
>The only Seiya I can stand is the Omega incarnation, now that's what getting older and wiser is all about.
You might as well have Aioros as your favourite because Omega stripped Seiya of his personality
Seiya had a personality?
Yes. As one dimensional as all SS characters
Saga is objectively the best saint.
the best and the strongest!
why gemini saints are the best??
>my zodiac as a kid was Leo
Isn't your zodiac supposed to stay the same your entire life?
For some reason, the japs love to ship SeiyaxSaga. I guess murder attemp is hot for the fujoshis
Saint Seiya? More like Saint Saga
I like Shura and Shaka
I cant believe he hasn't been mentioned yet. The only best seinto.
You mean Shaka right?
Harbinger is pretty cool too.
Him and Shun showed the most personality out of the Bronzes.
The main 5 had well-defined personalities under shounen standards. Manga and anime are complementary in that area
Let's try the infamous Plinkett test on Seiya
>He's very stubborn, kinda harsh when he talks, very impulsive and kinda dumb. He's a very loyal friend once you know him. He likes to have fun and hanging out on his free time but he's very responsable in his work. Not a morning person though
but op that is not Seiya i mean even the one in the pic isn't the best Scorpio because that was Sonia
R-really? are you serious?
>One of the 20 people that gives a shit about ND is here
yasuko kobayashi? she wasn't involved in omega
>people mentioning spinoffs at all
Objectively best saint by sign:
Aries: Kiki > Mu > Shion
Taurus: Harbinger > Hasgard > Aldebaran > Ox
Gemini: Saga/Kanon > Aspros/Deuteros > Cain/Abel > Paradox/Integra
Cancer: Deathtoll > Manigold > Deathmask > Schiller
Leo: Aiolia > Kaiser > Regulus > Mycenae
Virgo: Shaka > Fudou > Shijima > Asmita
Libra: Genbu > Shiryu > Dohko
Scorpio: Cardia > Sonia > Milo
Sagittarius: Aiolos > Seiya > Sisyphus
Capricorn: El Cid > Shura > Ionia > Izou
Aquarius: Camus > Degel > Tokisada
Pisces: Albafica > Amor > Aphrodite
>Kiki better than Mu
THEY ARE BASICALLY THE SAME CHARACTER NOW
>Genbu over Dohko
also what do you dudes think of those CG movie designs?
Is that Aquarius?
It's obviously a shiny Blastoise
Here is Shura
Shaka is the most powerful saint
Rare image of Shaka actually wearing the helmet
Pants-on-head retarded design, even by Saint Seiya standards.
Aldebaran looks like he is a WoW character
All of them look like they're from a shitty
generic korean MMO.
And lastly Aiolia
He looks like a fucking robot
I bet this is made by Koei
this guy (y)
it looks like he's wearing one of those fishnet stockings
why is he so perfect?
Sorry, I mean Reiko Yoshida
>Athena is a highschool girl
That sounds like the title of some shitty LN
Leo is always the answer.
Leo is eternal bad ass.
>A normal high school girl who happen to be super duper special is protected by an army of pretty boys
WE WANT THE OTOME AUDIENCE
What was your reaction to this, /a/?
Daily reminder that Ikki, Shiryu, Fudou and Kiki all died like a bitch
>Implying killing fan-favorites like Shiryu and Ikki isn't a desperate cry for attention
>Implying they're dead for real
"I can't sense his cosmos/ki/whatever" is the oldest trick on shounen
Harbringer ending up to be best omega gold sure surprised me
It seems they want to retcon Kouga's origin to make him Seiya and Saori's real son.
I miss Kurumada's cloth design
I really enjoy the concept of that cloth but man they look like shit
that sounds really fucking stupid that mean that they will do it
>mfw Japan reacted will all the apathy omega's shenanigans deserved
>Be in 5th grade back when this was playing on Bolivian TV
>Friends in my school said their favorite saints where always their Zodiac sign saints
>Be the only one in my school who actually liked a saint that wasn't even a gold saint (Kanon in the Poseidon arc)
>HURR ANON, U ONLY LIKE HIM CAUSE YOUR GOLD SAINT (Pisces) IS GAY AND SUCKS
if it makes you feel better my favorite character is Sonia and she did end up been Scorpio, my sing.
same here, shaka master race reporting in
I wanted to be a normal high school girl but it turns out I am the reincarnation of the greek god Athena and have warriors in armour to protect me.
That would be the title.
That is one of Poseidon's Generals, Siren Sorento
Or God Warrior Mime
Or Lyra Orphee
...man Mime was WAY better than Orphee
I love Mime, but I assumed he just meant Sorento because Mime or Orphee don't show in the manga
My nigga. Mime was really great.
there are actually 2 orpheus
well I only say that cause his theme/attack sounds fucking cool http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozDXZmo1tTA
Nah, Orpheus was a real style
tfw I like DeathMask and thought his fight during the Sanctuary Arc was the coolest because of getting to see Shiryu chimp out.
>Best Gold Saint
>You are not mama
Is this the latest version?
>Milo that low
Freud / Oedipus would be proud of Hyoga
nah, no one really bothered to update with Shiryu or Integra there
also nobody should care about omega's second season
These are all ugly as fuck.
Saints are supposed to be beautiful bishounen, these are too 3DPD for me.
Even the Japanese fandom hates them.
Deathmask is and will always be my favorite Gold Saint.
I remember screaming "Sekishiki Meikai Ha" all day when I was little.
i completely forgot about this series. where are we now in the manga? I remember Shaka (or some Saint) fighting another Gold saint of the same constellation where he went back in time.
The best gold saint will forever and always be Gundam ZZ's pilot
Might be the Scorpio in me speaking, but I always liked Milo the best. Helps that I bought a few SS games back in the day and his Antares Needle was stupidly overpowered in all of them.
>Haruto of the implying constellation
Damn Aphrodite looks good there
They killed Griffin, Deathtoll became a ball and Ophiuchus is coming or something
Also Suikyo is ded, Dohko defeated him and also will betray the saints
Being a SSfag is suffering
>nobody should care about omega
Shaka > Saga
Aren't LNs targeted to male otakus?
That sounds more like an otome game
moo da bes
This. Suck it, Sagafags
season one has real great moments and legit great characters (orion, sonia aria and ucking mars)
I only watched the original Saint Seiya when I was little. Are the new titles worth my time?
Episode G and Next Dimension
Evade Omega, Lost Canvas and Saintia Sho like a plague
Go back to the precure threads
Who the guy that yelled "GREATEST HORN"? He was kickass.
And that Pegasus guy from lost canvas was also pretty cool.
That animation looks god-tier compared to the 2nd season shit. What the fuck happened?
>Evade Omega, Lost Canvas and Saintia Sho like a plague
>Lost Canvas and Saintia Sho
Lost Canvas is really cool if you want more fanservice for your favorite Gold Saint. It's also less formulaic than usual. The last part could be considered pretty shitty though.
Saintia Sho has some potential to be good and at the very least has less lore-rape than Omega.
Hades OVA's(First one mainly) and Next Dimension
Maybe that one OVA that tried to continue where the story left off from Hades as well but isn't quite canon.
Worst guy always win
Saori is worst girl anyways.
toei had 3 different team working on omega during season 1, every 5 episodes or so god tier team did the key episodes, the other two teams were recgular or shit tier
Go fuck yourself
That's normal for reverse haremshit Hypnotoad is mai waifu though
She's cute but I felt gay watching Prince whatever
Worst eyes ever.
SS is gayer
>Literally a goddess
Go to bed, Shaina.
Hey, that episode with Genbu protecting the bridge wasn't too bad. It was basically what made me think that maybe, this season would be worth watching
...oh how I was mistaken
still watching to see how things will end though
Athena is a retarded slut that surrenders herself too easily.
Eris is a true godess.
Despite its reputation as yaoi fodder, SS girls are gorgeous.
Pandora is the best girl
What I like about S2 is that it is actually making use of the Old Cast and old moves
They do use the old cast and old moves, but they are given no respect. The old cast is being killed off easily and their moves aren't having any effect on an enemy. See all the fights with Class-1 Pallasites.
Heh. I felt terrible for the guys that got Aphrodite. I would have fucking killed myself. It's bad enough that Milo has that woman fingernail on his middle finger or whatever.
On the plus side Scorpio's sixteen point palm shit is the coolest attack in the series so meh.
Except for Ikki. Then again, he's THE Ikki, so I guess it makes sense.
>oh no we can't even 3v1 this guy even though we're gold saints and one of us is part of the original cast what shall we do
>I know LET'S KILL OURSELVES
>it only breaks the other guy's sword
>he's completely unharmed
>surprise, he's the only pallasite that isn't useless without his sword
>one of them was part of the original cast
Kiki didn't really get blind to avoid getting Medusa'd or die a few times, so I don't think he counts.
Although Shiryu tanked 2 Athena Exclamations...so Hyperion being alive shouldn't be that much of a problem.
although that motherfuckers armor should have been atleast dinged or something
Ikki died to the weakest of the four.
The second weakest got defeated by the bronze cast and left them completely unharmed.
I think he means the original five. Kiki wasn't a saint in the original series and he doesn't have as much battle experience as Shiryu.
He did work in the original
I mean he fucking tanked shots from THE GOD OF DEATH
WITHOUT A CLOTH
When did that happen?
The Poseidon saga where he was trying to bring the Libra cloth around but then had to try to fend of the Mermaid and maybe a few poseidon grunts
Wait what, Saint Seiya isn't even fully scanlated? I swear I remember reading the Hades saga.
The translation and scans are just really bad, but it still sort of counts.
>Shiryu tanked 2 Athena Exclamations
Except he didn't. He only changed their direction. I don't think anyone/anything resisted an Athena Exclamation until now.
He didn't defeat Gold Saints, Marines or Spectres.
The only thing he has is his telekinesis.
Hades won da seinto seya
Oh... I tried batoto and they have almost nothing. Should have tried mangatraders first.
If they add Ophiuchus then according to your birthday then you sign may shift up or shift down.
>They do use the old cast and old moves, but they are given no respect. The old cast is being killed off easily and their moves aren't having any effect on an enemy. See all the fights with Class-1 Pallasites.
Really, the only "easy" death was Shiryu's, Kiki's and Fudou's. Ikki died alongside a 1st Class, Seiya obviously will beat Titan with his new cloth.
Before the 1st class Pallasite battles, the classic Saints hardly had any problems in season 2 and won all their battles without much trouble.
It's only Shiryu's and co's death that seemed sudden and rushed. And I'm still not convinced that those deaths will stick due to no gold cloth fragments alongside Hyperion's sword. Also, they had less reaction shots than Ikki's death. IIRC, Hyoga and Shun aren't even shown reacting to it, unlike Ikki's.
I don't know. It piss me off when a bad show made me remember better shows and I'm supposed to be grateful.
They're killing the old cast just for shock value and because the kids can't do shit with the real heroes around. Mainly for shock value but Japan doesn't give a shit.
Probably because they were actually trying in Omega S1.
There aren't many things in S2 that are good.
>they were actually trying in Omega S1
>rehash the Sanctuary arc but rated G plus jewels
Its better than the giant filler that is most of S2.
It seems to me in both seasons they killed all the interesting side characters. Aria and Sonia in S1 and minor characters in S2 like that one decent steel saint or the original equuleus saint.
Both are terrible for its own reasons
I can't stand Subaru as a main character and I can't wait for them to replace him with the obvious person.
>Aria and Sonia
can we really bash another Sanctuary Arc?
I mean I do like the 12 temple speedrun but even the "canon" stuff has done the sanctuary like 3 times already.
The Hades arc wasn't a Sanctuary arc again. The saints were defending their territory instead of invading the enemy's and that was a first time for SS. Besides, the 12 houses were created for protecting Athena and it was time for the gold saints to do their job.
Despite of how much I like ND, I can admit that's a real rehash. Nevertheless, Kurumada is a washed up drunk while Omega was supposed to be create a new generation of SSfags with fresh new ideas from a young staff. At this point of his life, Kurumada doesn't have anything to proof and ND is aimed exclusively toward the oldfags but Omega was different. At the end, Omega failed in bringing kids to SS, it's such a esquizofrenic show in its despise toward SS and its blatant nostalgia pandering.
I-I like them...
Asgard saga: greatest filler of entire history of anime.
also, great saint, or greatest saint?
He isnt a saint he is a God Warrior.
And I agree it is the best filler
ah, well, i know he isn't a saint...
mexanon here, i just don't know how are they called in english or japanese.
even their fucking names are more awesome.
Not guerreros de dios, guerreros sagrados, etc
ND is rehash, but it has everything I love about SS and no one knows how things will turn out in the end with all those other gods being involved in the war in some way.
...too bad Kurumada will probably die before he finishes ND.
woops, meant for >>102109285
Out of my way, here comes the true main character of Saint Seiya.
at least the unicorn was a a bro in lost canvas.
Go away, Saori's Pony.
What if ND is Hades's overcomplicated plan for changing history and getting Seiya's butthole?
A shame they weren't in that saint seiya game
Asgard isn't that popular on Japan. Arguably, it was responsable of SS's rating decline and the cancellation before the Hades saga
If we are talking about Hades Saga best saint its fucking Milo. Best Lost Canvas is Manigoldo
I mean I liked them but even I was fucking tired of 5 episodes of WOLF CRUELTY CLAW and the fact that these guys got WAY more development than the fucking Mariners
>If we are talking about Hades Saga best saint its fucking Milo.
Best saint Hades saga was either Kanon or Shaka
Shaka taking on three gold saints equally, winning even in death as he makes a plan to take down Hades and protect Athena by making the enemy think he won, and generally doing shit.
Kanon took Milo's attack to the death in order to prove his loyalty and determination towards Athena as atonement, took on his brother as Saga could only cry that his brother finally made it and wasn't such a dickhole anymore, went to Hades with Dohko after unlocking his Seventh Sense whole occasionally helping the Bronze Saints along the way as they continued nearly losing to grunts, and he took down the strongest spectre with a suicide attack.
Radamathys was obviously the best Spectre, he was the only one who did shit in the end, and he killed like five golds. The guy just moved around the map the entire day back in forth getting into fights until it just got the better of him.
Som best attack? Gotta say Aurora Execution personally.
>Shaka doing all that shit
He was clearly on a different level from all the other saints . They even pulled off this "closest man to God" thing from time to time. Virgo Saints are supposed to be linked with all that religious business but Shaka is completely broken. Not even Asmita.
>Kanon took Milo's attack to the death in order to prove his loyalty and determination towards Athena as atonement.
Milo wasn't planning to land a killing shot, and Saori says that on the act. He was indeed testing his loyalty but he wasn't going to murder him either.
Radamanthys is full bad ass, I'll give you that.
I still wanna point out that Saga and Camus weren't really going out with their best moves on Shaka and that they were more trying to disable rather than kill.
Not so say using Tenbu Horin on the three wasnt impressive, just saying they were holding back to an extent
and if it was anyone else they would have been fucked fighting three gold saints at all, just like most other people they ran into on the way up.
That's not the best.
Well, they certainly weren't going all out fighting Shaka. Remember that they were playing a ruse all along because Shion's keikaku.
Also everyone talks about how Shaka took on 3 Golds at once yet little praise is given to Motherfuckin Mu who VERY CONVINCINGLY defeated Deathmask and Aphrodite
I mean this was before they went out like bitches to Rhadamantys so it is still somewhat fresh in your mind that these two really fucked up Shiryu and Shun during the Sanctuary Speedrun
I hope the staff retcon Kouga's origin for making him Seiya and Saori's real son. I don't give a shit about SeiyaxSaori but it's fucking cruel to give Seiya a harem and make him permavirgin
Death Mask and Aphrodite are the gold saints's lovable losers
They should have really given Deathmask more than one move.
Technically, all the gold saints can throw attacks at the speed of light and Death Mask humilliated Shiryu on their first fight just using light speed attacks.
Sending your soul to hell is a very broken power
Yeah it is cool. but then that scene with Rhadamantys did make me think "...that move IS kinda useless against servants of Hades when you think about it" even if he and Aphrodite killed like 10 grunt specters with just their fists beforehand
Then again i havent really read much outside of the main series so I dunno what those other Cancers do.
Sekishiki Tenkai ha I know was a thing
>Sending your soul to hell is a very broken power
That's kind of the issue, when you're only attack is auto-kill, then you know you're almost never going to be allowed to use it here.
You'll use it the first time, and shit will stop you ever other time.
as I recall Aphrodite and Death Mask jobbed to Mu on purpose to try to take down Hades or something when they got back down to Hell, but somehow they didn't count on Radamathys still being that strong and easily knocking them about when they got back down there.
They thought "Everyone is up there, so if we do this carefully.." and then automatically lose. Shaka had a similar plan, but didn't fuck it up as much.
Those two should have had more scenes.
They sure jobbed hard against Rhadamanthys but they were pretty badass.
Does the manga expand more on them? Did Kurumada ever explain why they decided to fight for Athena in the end?
Weren't they at that Hades castle or something where unless blessed, you only got about 10% of your power? I mean, Aiolia, Milo and Mu also jobbed hard to Radamanthys
And Best Saint coming through
Is that Manga Baian?
I dont know. but it breaks my heart. ;_;
Unless you have Eighth Sense you're at 10% in all of the underworld, but they still tried shit despite that since only Shaka knew about Eighth Sense
Even if you're just at the entrance you still lose your power. It's stated that the reason Milo, Aiorios, and Mu lost to Radamathys is because of this, but also because they realized in order to awaken to Eighth sense they had to reach their absolute limits and fear for their lives. So in a very realistic and literal way they had to die in order to awaken to this.
>tfw having the same birthday as Shaka
Eighth sense just means you are alive and not controlled by hades in the underworld. It doesn't boost cosmos. The 10 percent isonly in effect in that castle
Wrong, you need the Eight Sense to enter the underworld otherwise you're instakill. Mu didn't intend to kill Deathmask or Aphrodite since the Stardust Extinction worked as a teleportation mechanism.
By the way the castle they were sent to, Pandora's castle, is in Germany not in the underworld. The reason Mu, Milo, and Aiolia were so weak there was because it was protected by a barrier from Hades. Same thing happened in LC when they were climbing to get to the cathedral/castle.
The single thing he was good on designing.
I don't remember ever liking a filler as much as I liked Asgard.
I want a doujin of them as evil buttbuddies
Oh, Eris. How intensely I fapped to you.
>Seiya is the only character in J Stars Victory
We could at least have Saga as a villain rep or Athena support
These two are OTP.
only reason he was strong is that he was old as fuck compared to the other gold saint
That would make Dohko and Shion the strongest.
