The animated adaptation of the Hades Saga (From the original "Saint Seiya" manga) started very well with the 13 episodes of the "Chapter Sanctuary". It is from this point where trouble starts.
With a clearly lower budget than "Sanctuary", the animation of "Inferno" is extremely cheap to the point of being almost laughable at moments. The fighting scenes left too much to be desired, lacking of most of the emotional impact and excitement that the ones from the "Sanctuary" original video animations and the first anime series.
On the other side, the plot, being a completely faithful adaptation of the manga (Without any change made to it) was entertaining to watch, even if there are several moments when thing seem to be happening way too fast. The character's designs were decent, and the music was okay (With most of the score being entirely taken from Seiji Yokoyama's work on the previous TV series) I guess that this wasn't entirely bad, but in my opinion it could have been much better.
