For those unfamiliar with the series let me tell you that you missed a lot of intense experiences. If you have time, check the initial Saint Seiya show before this, but or else it will still be an exciting experience standing very well on its own. It is a mix of mythology, astronomy and samurai combat, with dramatic writing.
For those familiar with the show, it's probably what they all expected and wished for. As the title suggests, the focus is at last (and as was the initial intention of the original series creation) on the Gold knights. Who ever you are and wherever you are from, there is one of them who the zodiac associates you with. Each one's personality and fighting techniques marks you much more than an astrology book. Which makes this much more exciting than the Bronzes (which I personally despised) protagonists of the other homonym series.
Great quality of animation, nice mythology connections, and epic music. I think that it will be proved a safe investment for the producers, to allow them provide us more masterpieces like that.
