Dragon was the most popular Saint in Japan back in the 80s. Seiya was the least.

All five did reach God Saint level, but ultimately went back to Gold Saint level with some choosing to take the role. Gold Saints are not as free as Bronze or Silver Saints.

Plus, they could only become the Gold Saint if the Gold cloth of their zodiac sign was without a holder.

By the way, did you know all five heroes were in fact half brothers except for Phoenix and Andromeda who were full brothers?


Half brothers? No, I didn't know that. Did they say that in the new Omega series?

No, they said it during the original. Turns out that the old rich guy that adopted Saori aka Athena and started the Galaxian Wars was a real bastard. All those orphans he sent off to be trained as Saints... his bastard kids. At least our main group are.

When did that happen? I must have seen the original episodes at least a dozen times and I don't remember that. Could my memory be this bad?

Not sure. I tend to like more fantastic stuff. Did you mean non-science fictiony? Or just more "gritty"?

Have you tried Golgo 13?

Since you like Black Lagoon, you should like Jormungand seasons 1 & 2.

Then for what you described, one of my all time favorites - Hyouka. It's a detective/love story of sorts.

Thing is, all the rest are light comedies that are cute but otherwise fluff. So stuff that is good and kind of tame -

Kokoro Connect
- a character exploration as a small high school club becomes the labrats of some sort of alien/supernatural being(s). Good melodrama.
Tamako Market
- short anime, cute with some silly. Basically set in a shopping arcade (mall) where a talking bird has arrived looking for a human girl
to marry his human prince. The series has some cute comedy and character explorations. Very charming and sweet.

Stuff that goes more outlandish but are very good.

Bakemonogatari
Nisemonogatari (Bakamonogatari sequel)
Nekomonogatari (Black)
Nekomonogatari (White)
- Another favorite of mine. Based on a series of light novels, it involves a high school student dealing with supernatural entities that affect people in his life. Very sureal, tons of text flashed to catch, interesting and eccentric characters. Amazing series.
Another
- Another favorite of mine. Horror series. I'm not a horror fan but this one knocked it out of the park for me. Shock value made.
Sword Art Online
- Another favorite of mine. One of the most popular anime in years. Set in a virtual world.. things go FUBAR and it becomes a life or death battle. It's split over two seasons and two VR worlds. Great stories and characters.
Ben-to
- short anime, action comedy. Sort of fight club meets supermarket prepared meals. Hilarious stuff. But a bit outlandish at times.

so i guess the cliffhanger ending of the beginning of the race in 5x14 is for the series finale. looks like there's no reason for them to do another 2-3 eps to wrap up this season and the ending.

also hope funimation won't be discouraged from dubbing the final season some time in the future too.

Grittier and less-science fictiony. I tried Gungrave but the hulking out zombies just made me tune out....outside of that I really liked the overall story though.

Liked Jorumgand too. Golgo 13 looks interesting 8)

Osamu Tezuka's Princess Knight Gets New Remake Manga

Japanese publisher Home-sha's online manga magazine Puratto Home launched a rebooted version of Osamu Tezuka's Princess Knight (Ribbon no Kishi) manga on Friday to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the manga. Shouko Fukaki (The Battle of Genryu: Origin, Guardian dog) is drawing the new manga, titled RE:BORN Kamen no Otoko to Ribon no Kishi (RE:BORN The Masked Man and the Ribbon Knight). Atsushi Kagurazaka (Taisho Baseball Girls) is handling the scenario, and Tezuka Productions is collaborating on the project.

"Episode 0" of the manga is available to read for free now.

Princess Knight revolves around Princess Sapphire, who was born with both the soul of a boy and a girl and raised as a boy so that she can inherit her kingdom's throne. The manga pioneer Osamu Tezuka drew the original story in Kodansha's Shoujo Club magazine from 1953 to 1956.


(note the free manga is in Japanese)
