i agree about the character similarities. i swear he really needs to look into finding ways to mix up character profiles for the main guys instead of clonning seiya every where but looks a little different.
does not know where, what or who they are. drawn to the dark and fearing the light. what can they do is in the dark. how sad it is to be a lost soul with no where to go.

Fix'd.

I just made a post about this in the B't X thread.... Anyone think Kuruman had a big sister who taught him a lot? ^^;

Actually, Since Ring Ni Kakero was Kurumada's first manga success, Everyone including Seiya are "clones" of Ryuuji Takane. Why is this? because like Tezuka, Kurumada likes to use the same Cast of Character in new roles. Its a common thing done by alot of the Big name legends of Manga, Tezuka did it, Go Nagai likes to do it sometimes, Leiji Matsumoto has done it a few times, and of course Kurumada does it.
I'm actually surprised this show isn't more discussed here. I mean this is the manga series that not only put Kurumada on the map, but also became the standard for the Shounen action series for years to come. I guess the anime had its thunder stolen by Hajime No Ippo (which is probably one the best anime ever made).

I love the manga but this is my most honest opinion: The anime is one of most weak transfer from manga to anime. I'm surprised it's still been done... ;)

Well, I understand they cut out alot of Ryuji's training and his formative years. I don't think they had much choice, Kurumada doesn't write the kind of stories that appeal to todays Anime fandom in Japan. I'm glad we got any of it at all, What we have been shown is still awesome.

Maybe it will be better when the World Champion Carnival Story comes out. That's when the story really gets exciting...

But I won't hold my breath. The scriptwriter I consider one of the weakest writers out there and that's counting fanic writers... : |

I think Kurumada's work is so strong that even this guy can't louse it up too much. Like I've said, I enjoyed it quite a bit so far and it definitely feels like a Kurumada story, even if there are large omissions in it. The build up to each fight really gets me into it all. I do wish Toei would put the best effort into this, but the way things are over there right now, I don't think they could afford to if it doesn't sell really well (and as things stand, it probably would probably do badly in the ratings).

Gone are the days when something like this would garner the attention it deserves, so they aren't going to put their best people on it or put as much money into as they might have in the past. Its just not worth the risk to go all the way with it.

Well it is an old work and most people wouldn't know about it if they never heard of Seiya or Masami....

What I wished was that they would put the same kind of emotion they did with Seiya but even Seiya OVAs with Inferno and Elysion had bad quality, it didn't surprise me that they put even less effort in Rinkake...

Anyway, I agree that most companies now a days(not just anime companies) want the most money out of the least investment... Oh welll... : |

The 3rd season, the Shadow Clan arc, should be out now. But even in Japan, I'm having a difficult time finding some of the DVDs =(. But I believe the world tournament arc has been confirmed to be animated next. My favorite story arcs are the ones when Jun fights Jesus Christ for the WBA Bantamweight championship, and when they fight Team Greece. I'm very disappointed that they are not simply animating the entire manga whcih has been completed for over 25 years.

I think they got the right voice actors/seiyuus for the roles, and I love the theme songs, but I feel the anime doesn't give the manga justice.

A lot of Hajime no Ippo fans (and I consider myself a hardcore fan of Hajime no Ippo) tend to bash this, and I can understand why. But I feel if people have an open mind and understand the historical influence and significance that the original manga had, I think people can enjoy it. If it weren't for Ring ni Kakero, there'd be no Shounen Jump.
