Plot: Set immediately after Saint Seiya, Saint Seiya - Saintia Shō follows the traditional central plot common to Kurumada's original work and its derivative works: Athena, the Greek goddess of justice and heroic endeavor, returns when evil consumes Earth, and battles antagonistic deities, the agents of evil, with the assistance of her army of warriors known as Saints, protected by their Cloths, battle armors that represent their guardian constellations. The main character in the series is a young female Saint named Shō, who protects Athena and her Sanctuary from the attack of Goddess of Discord, Eris. The series introduces a new class of female Saints, which are known as Saintia (聖闘少女（セインティア） Seintia, lit. "Holy Fighting Girls"), Athena's personal maidens.
I suppose I should prepare for Saint Seiya. I don't have time to read the original.
Lucky me, I find the manga's 1st chapter on a Youtube video. That saves me time to not go on fan scanlation sites to read it.
While I'm not fluent in Spanish, I do have 2 years of high school Spanish which is good enough to make out some if not most of the words since it uses the same alphabet along with the illustrations for context.
Speaking of Spanish, I remember Saint Seiya was the "DBZ" in Central and South America as it didn't do so well in North America.
Since it has female characters predominantly, no doubt the art style becomes soft and look shoujo as the eyes are somewhat detailed.
Sho's upbringing: she lives with her dad in what appears to be a traditional, old style Japanese home.
Why am I getting a Sailor Moon vibe?
Weird, they blacked out the male Saints' eyes.
Oh it's all girls school so does this mean it follows the trend that most new anime shows with a high female character ratio, lots of yuri baiting?
Actually no, I'm getting an Utena vibe instead.
Well, that was a good read. The art style is pleasant to look at. That's good to note since I have read really ugly manga where I cannot make out the characters like Attack on Titan's case.
Taka, I'm still don't know how to feel about Toei animating this manga with the updated Original Saint Seiya art style rather than the clean and detailed Shoujo like art style Chimaki draws in Saintia Shou.
Wait, did they actually say that in the news? We don't have information or a trailer yet to preview the product, I mean anime. Usually, anime does try to emulate the original source's art style unless you are from a light novel where you only have LN covers.
Most drastic case I seen in changing the art style would Haru Chika.
Not too familiar with Toei Animation's record with the art style in anime since I didn't pay too close attention to Toriko, Sailor Moon, and One Piece
Oh yeah, the magazine news with its anime visual promos. I'm so dense. Thanks for the correction. I do see the difference. The anime is much sharper and looks more "shonen" and grittier than Shoujo. I'm thinking they might have done it for their target demographic, guys. I might get whammed here since moe anime is mostly consumed by men and has a lot of "soft features." It's weird that they make the anime.
Comedically, I see her anime self is angry while her manga side is happier. it's the Kirby effect!
Taka, LOL true. Anyways while I'm slightly disappointed that they aren't following Chimaki's art style it doesn't seem like they changed much in the character design features. I guess once a PV is released I can judge it better.
chrysoprase: Hello likely old stuff to you have watched"In Another World With My Smart Phone"English dubbed I do like it did everyone notice the very subtle bit each ending shows one beauty of the Harime drawing his and Her face on glass her left eye tears interesting.

Taka: I misread last time when they announce a remake of the visual novel.

Old Man Dream: Been wanting an anime remake for Tsukihime for a while, provided it gets Ufotable at the helm of animating it. Like Fate, but the horse for it's getting squeezed dry enough, especially with its many spinoffs.
