Saint Seiya Omega!
« on: February 06, 2012, 02:20:41 PM »
This image appeared today at Toei's official SS site. I wonder what it is.
Is this the supposed rumor of a anime starting in April?
What do you think?

What in the world? O.O

It looks like a complete reimagining, with a more younger shonen and magical girl theme....

My initial feelings were "wtf are they trying to accomplish with this, why ruin it with all these horrible bright colours?"

But now i'm more anxious to see what the plot is about....

Toei Animation announced on Tuesday that the mythical fantasy anime Saint Seiya will return to television for the first time in about a quarter century with a new series, Saint Seiya Omega, on April 1. Saint Seiya Omega will have an original adventure action story with a new generation of characters, led by the protagonist Kōga.

Reiko Yoshida (Bakuman., D.Gray-man, K-ON!, The Story of Saiunkoku) is in charge of the scripts.

So far I like the fact that it doesn't overlap or clash against the original series.

Kurumada apparently only gave permission for this series, but is not directly involved.
(he doesn't sound terribly happy about it either, but it's just my interpretation)

...Well, I've used enough colorful language in my room before posting here...so here goes...

Why? Why not pull a FMA: Brotherhood, and make an excellent manga adaptation? Why must this happen instead? I might end up liking it...but right now, I feel ill...

"Morio Hatano, an episode director on Heartcatch Precure!"

Do you think the guy in the CGI movie is Seiya or this new Koga character? Looking at the red stripes on the Cloth I'm starting to wonder

I think since they intend the movie to "return" to what was done before it should be Seiya... The guy behind him is crazy scary!! :)

Anyway, Seiyapedia is updated.

Given the Reddish hair with the Pegasus Helm, I'm pretty sure that's Koga in the Omega poster.

I do believe it's Seiya in the movie poster (unlike Omega, I do believe the story of the movie is based on a Kuru idea, if I read that right in the article).

Good point about hair colour. My doubt was based on his headpiece design here

which looks very similar to Koga's, but hopefully it's just a coincidence.

EDIT: you know, the more I look at it, the more I think it's Seiya with Koga's Cloth. The red stripes, the shape of the headpiece, the sides of the belt piece. You can even see the square stone on the chest, in the shadow, just above Seiya's left fist.
Perhaps this movie is some kind of bridge between StS and Omega?

The new pic is all reddish, it might be just lighting issues... ;)

More info/better translations from Archange at SSP:


Main characters.

Kōga ("light fangs")
Pegasus Bronze Saint. 13 years old. Teenager born under Pegasus consetllation's fate. Special technique: Pegasus Ryūsei Ken. Never gives up and shows a rebellious nature, but actually has a heart full of compassion for people. He understands the importance of friendship and bonds when he meets his Saints friends.

Seiya
Pegasus Bronze Saint. A legendary Saint who protected Athena long ago against an evil ennemy. Is now a Gold Saint.

Saori Kido = Athena
The girl who never stopped protecting peace on Earth. Reincarnation of the Goddess of War. In this series, she raises Kōga as a parent (father/mother meaning).

Yuna
Heroin. Eagle Bronze (TN: yes it's written Bronze). 14 years old.

Sōma. (“blue scratch”)
Main character's best friend. Lionet Bronze. 14 years old. Kōga relies on this partner.

Ryūhō (“top-dragon”)
Main character's cadet. Dragon Bronze Saint. 12 years old.
(TN: otōtobun doesn't exactly means "younger brother". Among member of the same group, it's used to name a younger disciple. Tenma is sometimes called like that by Dohko on TLC, and Geist is also called "imoutobun" (imouto=younger sister) by Shaina).

Eden
Orion Bronze Saint shrouded in mystery. 15 years old.

Haruto ("glory of combat")
Wolf Bronze Saint. From a ninja family. Very smart. 13 years old.

Mars. (TN: written in katakana, like the roman god)
Warrior of Mars (TN: written the the Mars planet kanjis). He attacks Athena to create the prefect world he would rule.


Episode 1.

The goddess Athena, in a castle that has a view upon the 12 Zodiac Houses, looks at the baby Kōga asleep. Suddenly, a huge darkness appears and a great explosion occurs. Because of that, a pillar falls in Kōga 's direction, but Seiya, Gold Saint, saves him at the last minute. Mars, the evil enemy draped in a cape, shows up.

I honestly don't know what to think of this series at the moment.  I'll adopt a wait and see mode with it right now, although the cloths are bugging me.  Seriously, those Cloths look nothing like what they're suppose to!  What happened with Eagle there?  They not only downgraded it but made it look more like a magical girl outfit than a Cloth!  At least the overall plot sounds interesting.

A 13 year-old ninja boy whose name ends in aruto. Where have I heard that before? ^^''

Really not sure about it so far, especially Eagle. Why not using an unseen Cloth instead of modifying Eagle so radically?
