I am a big fan of Saint Seiya and I loved the Chapter Sanctuary. However, this season has many closeups where only the mouth is moved. It is very annoying to watch. Not to mention, the finale (episode 25 I believe) is just plain terrible. TERRIBLE!!
It was a far cry from the very dramatic and emotional finale to Chapter Sanctuary. Much could have been done that animators just didn't do. Perhaps the biggest gripe I have with the entire season was the last two episodes. The saints just spent too much time being redundant so that the animators wouldn't have to animate any more fight scenes (i.e. Hyoga's fight with the last judge).
Overall, this was a huge disappointment, and I hope Elyseum would be better. It's funny how an anime of this quality outranks Akira Kurosawa's best movies.
