Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This anime remake takes the original 80s series and repackages it in a lighter and more kid-friendly adaption. Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya is much more fast-paced -- sometimes this can be jarring as episodes seem to jump ahead years at a time to new events without any explanation of what is going on or how the characters got there. This can make the story feel rushed at times, which takes away from the tension as events seem to finish almost as fast as they arise. The art and animation of the knights are well done, and fights feel fluid, however, there's a lot of reused animation that begins to feel repetitive.
