Like:

Shaka,Saga,Dohko and Aphroite moments.
First episode.
( I am shipper) so AioriaXLyfia.
Fourth episode.
Ending.

Dislike:
GW
Management for the days
Rush
few episodes
How they handle Milo and Aiolos.

I won't say animation, yes it was bad, but I am TV fan of SS( I still watched SS in Black and whiteXD), so I didn't care or know how bad was that.

Like:

- Aphrodite
- Saga and Aioros interactions.
- The golden sparkle effect they added to the god cloths. It's the closest so far out of all the anime adaptations at mimicking the shininess in the manga. This one made me happy ^^
- Gold saints, lots of gold saints teaming up :)
- Majority of the god cloth designs.


Dislike:

1) Animation
- The focus on Aioria's 'drama' with Lyfia, the show has a limited number of episodes, Toei should have known better what to focus on.
- Bland plot, bland script, GWs were pretty boring.
- How they handled some of the characters, specifically Milo and Camus and to a lesser degree Deathmask.
- Aioria as the main character...

Like:

 All Gold Saints Had God Cloth


Dislike:

They Kill All Original Gold Saints Over Again not fair They fought and cost their life for Athena. After they died, they are brought back to life to face another battle in another land. And at the end they gained nothing and die again But why Lyfia  only one full revive from Dead that so unfair Just like Odin fleeced them. They are worthy to reward the second life for their courage. 

that some dark ending :\.... now I thought they may give up the cloth and live as a normal human in asgard, but NOPE :c

Likes:
1. Saga and Aiolos reconciliation
2. Gold Saints teamwork.
3. Gold saints' friendship at personal level (which are never seen in the classic series)
4. Forgiveness and conflict resolutions
5. Nods to original series.
Bonus: 6. Nice ending song.

Dislike:
1. Milo severely downgraded.
2. Camus totally OOC (I know they're trying to recreate Degel-Kardia-Unity plot but...please, it does not even come close).
3. Ridiculous animation
4. Shallow, sometimes dumb story (e.g. why Aiolia must be the Chosen One?)
5. The cheese (scarlet needle becoming flash of red without Antares, lengthy introduction of 12 GS after wearing god cloths, all the "for friendship", "for justice" blahblah speech etc).
Bonus: 6. Too short...had there were 26 eps the story could have been better developed.

Like

1. Gold Saints
2. Short story, if it was any bigger it would eventually suck.
3. God Cloths
4. Aioros/Saga, Deathmask/ Aphrodite combo
5. Plot* (will explain later)

Dislike

1. Animation
2. Aioria x Lyfia and technically Lyfia overall
3. Aioros' voice
4. Odin Robe destroyed like it was nothing
5. Plot*

*Liked the idea of the Gold Saints being resurrected by Odin to save Asgard and the twist that the master of trickery, Loki was tricked. However disliked the time management and the relevance to the total eclipse incident. Should happen after. It made no sense.
Why would Yggdrasil need the power of the 12 Gold Cloths to be nurtured? should be something related to Asgard legend instead.
Odin the All Father just watching the Gold Saints' fight with Loki instead of actually taking part in this.
It was never quite explained where these God Warriors were when not so long ago the L5 were facing the "original" ones.
In conclusion it wasn't bad but it wasn't great either.


Bonus:

For those that found the God Warriors weak, I have to say it didn't bother me why? because supposedly the L5 defeated the strongest God Warriors while these were some kind of subs and if the L5 defeated the God Warriors not so easily (still defeated them) it is only fitting that the Gold Saints should not have a problem with the "lesser" ones which is why they added the barrier factor to make them at Gold Saint's level. At least that's my opinion.


For those who don't like Aioria being the main protagonist, let me remind you that he represents Masami himself.

Yes, but so what if he represents Kuru? Still doesn't mean I like him as a protagonist. If I read more of Ep. G then there's a chance I would come to like him as a protagonist of 'that' series, but in SoG he doesn't left an impression on me, at all. Here his actions are the most predictable and he comes close to having no personality, unlike in the original or Hades where that was never the case. From how I see it, he's just there to fulfill the role of the protagonist, and I'm not blaming the character either, most of the faults lies with the writer who fails to make Aioria engaging or distinct.

But that's just my opinion.

True but that doesn't mean he should have a special treatment as the main protagonist. I mean sure you can do that but usually the main protagonist is the one getting more screen time than the others, regardless their feats.

Two possible reasons why Aioria was chosen from the rest of the Gold Saints. I have mentioned the first one already but the second one is actually because the star of the series was supposed to be the Leo and not Pegasus.

I believe is self explanatory why they didn't even think about the others but I will say it anyway, there's nothing really to justify them for main characters.

In any case I think that if it was someone else it would raise more questions. ;)

I think the relationship of Lyfia and Aioria betrays the original anime... wasnt Aiolia flirtin with  Eagle Marin? with Shaina being the Mistress....

it's really the case to say there are too many birds around Ailoia
