The sense of what is at stake is dulled down by very poorly timed one-liners, meaning you never really feel impacted by the story.

If you're an anime fan-especially if you enjoyed the original-run far, far away, as fast as you can, and never look back.

If we have the original anime, with a more complex plot and more interesting characterisations, what's the point of watching this? [Full review in Spanish]

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This new 3D adaptation of an old favorite felt like a splash of cold water on a winter's day. In other words, not terribly pleasant.

Jul 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The animation is a little unexceptional and video-gamey, but clean and detailed - it's not afraid to hold on a shot and let us comprehend the fantastical images we're seeing.

Audience Reviews for Saint Seiya: Knights Of The Zodiac: Season 1

    They made Shun a woman and name her Shawn? That's too disrespectful. They also Changed the story way too much. This is terrible like saint seiya Omega. Seiyas sisters name is Seiko, not Patricia wtf is happening here. Patricia is a ugly name, literally nobody has that name anymore. If you have no idea what saint seiya is., By all means watch it if you are into CGI animations, or just watch the original on Netflix. Unfortunately this is a old anime. It's only needs a remastered version to make it look better.

    My gut reaction to this within 10 minutes was garbage. I tossed this aside and waited until quarantine to sit down, and stomach through as many episodes I could to give this a chance. This is the most Americanized garbage reboot of a beloved franchise that deserves a hell of a lot more than this bullshit. I got 6 episodes in before I really cannot continue. The dialogue is horrendous, the flow is rushed and dialogue doesn't even have any cohesion. One minute we have a character saying his armor can stop missiles and a minute later he is wining that they are going to die that they cannot survive these missile attacks. This trash should've never been made. Please do yourself a favor and never watch this!!!!

    I never watched the original, but I just couldn't enjoy the wonky animation/CG, it's awful, and I wish they went another way. Should the original be available on Netflix, it would be better. It was just rubbish because of how ugly it looks.

    Terrible plot, very rushed character development, poor fights.. Everything is terrible. It's so bad they even messed up the subtitles.

    Upon viewing all 6 episodes that were released, I have to say that it was actually pretty good in its own unique way. The story was interesting, modified though and not for the better I guess in certain areas. The problem with today's world is that we have an annoying tendency to not show any blood in animation and although in some cases I approve of that (when it comes to very young children cartoons), in cases such as an anime like Saint Seiya it shouldn't be prohibited. Another thing that annoyed me in this story version is the lack of some lore following. Aside from these two problems, I do not care whether Shun is an efiminate man (which he originally is) or a woman as long as the story was fine. And I do appreciate that they jump over those long and frankly boring moments in the original where they all go so emotional. I do think there is a way to do so without dragging the story for unending number of episodes where nearly nothing happens, but Netflix hasn't quite found the right formula yet. But comparing Netflix's version to the original, the original still seems to be better in my eyes. One last thing though, I watched it in Japanese so the names they call between one another has not changed. But from the looks of it, when you watch it in English or even use English subtitles, they have changed everybody's name completely. I honestly think that was unecessary.

    Its an Spin-off. That being said, it is the worst spin-off ever imaginated. American soldiers fighting for the world? Seiya being bullied? SHUN A WOMAN? Every single thing that had a powerful meaning on the original series, has been changed for an inclusive-cartoonish non-sense just to make it "appropiate" or "cool" with this generation. Dont watch this show.... just dont.

    So, if you'd like to watch Saint Seiya don't even bother to look at this thing on Netflix as it has NOTHING in common with the original anime series: a mix of political correctness, plastic puppets with no soul and no storyline at all! Paper thin characters that in the original anime series were thick, full of humanity, complex, all things that some "writers" from Netflix stripped from the show... you don't want today's kids to use too much brain, do you? More, where's the blood? I mean, if your face is smashed on concrete you're supposed to spill blood from your wounds, not to get only some bruises. You don't want some middle class desperate housewives yell because their puffy fluffy kids saw some blood, do you? Well, it's a disaster, just don't watch it and go streaming the real thing, the original Japanese anime series!

    I love the show let's put it this way shun should have been a girl from the very beginning because Andromeda is a woman
  • Sep 22, 2019
    If you change everything that made a series and yet you put the name to it, i'm gonna think you only want money. This is not a matter of it not being the same as the old one, but about not respecting the original, ss omega was bad, but at least it was a spin off not a "reboot" with seiya having "misterious" powers

    Hay malas ideas, hay pésimas ideas, hay verdadera basura y está esta porquería 💩 hecha por Netflix. No se molestaron en averiguar sobre el manga, en ver el anime y no tienen la más mínima idea de Mitología Griega.
