Ahoy Captain Cats here and today I’m going to review a reboot of a classic series that Netflix is trying to reintroduce to the masses and its Knights of the Zodiac or better known to the rest of the world as Saint Seiya.
I’m just going to get to the point on this one; this is the WORST anime of 2019 by far. There is no storyline at all, no character storyline at all unless your Shun and Ikki and no I’m not going to use the horrible names that they were giving in this reboot. There is no life in this series at all; Netflix took everything that made the original series so memorable and beloved all over the world and made it into an empty husk of its formal self. The storyline, character development and growth, the plot twists, music, and the fighting, is what made this series so enjoyable. Here are some examples so you can see what is missing:
Original – note that this is in Spanish only and it is about 30 min long but worth the watch
Netflix I could not find any except for the trailer
Huge difference in everything plus I had to watch this in Spanish because the English dub was that bad, I can not recommend this reboot to anything. In case your wonder no I didn’t mind that they change Shun into a girl, but they miss the mark on what made Shun so special regardless of what sex they would have gone within this reboot.
