Description

Musical comedy based on the popular manga of Masami Kurumada comes out on DVD. Story was based on the anime's first movie "Saint Seiya: Evil Goddess Eris". It revolves around the girl named Eri, the second caretaker of the Star Children Academy where Seiya and his lost sister Seika grew up. When Eri wished upon a star one night, the Greek goddess of discord took her wish and used it to revive herself. Eventually, goddess Eris possessed Eri's body and kidnapped goddess Athena in Eris' Sanctuary. With this, Eris aimed to control the world by sucking up Athena's energy with the golden apple to hold her body. She then revived the Ghost Saints, the dead saints of the past to fight on her behalf. Includes a bonus disc with press conference and making-of "SUPER MUSICAL Saint Seiya," plus description.

        A Wonderful Show 4

        I'm a new fan to Saint Seiya (been aware of it for years but have only just started watching episodes) and I loved this show. The story is solid and easy to follow if you don't speak Japanese and the design of the costumes is spectacular. Especially the Ghost Saints and Seiya's Gold Cloth. The set is rather spartan (like other anime musicals I've seen) but is dynamic enough to support the show. I wish they would have had a more lively backdrop similar to the constellation one that was in the SMAP Saint Seiya musical. The songs are quite good as well (I just ordered the CD). There are a few extras which are good and don't just focus on talking heads (which don't do you any good if you don't speak Japanese). My only real complaint is the production quality of the DVD itself. I've seen other theatrical videos so I know that the lighting of a play or musical doesn't usually lend itself to being recorded as it's function is to light for its live audience but everything on this DVD seemed a bit too bright. All the blacks were a little gray. Again, that could strictly be because of the lighting and therefore not much could have been done about it for the recording. Some distance shots were a little muddled as well. The whole thing looks like it was shot on a late '90s/early '00s era camcorder rather than a current one. It doesn't appear to have been shot with a high-definition camera. If it was it really doesn't look it and if it was I really wish they would have released that HD version on a blu-ray because that might have helped with some of those distance muddled shots. Overall the technical problems are minor and still do not distract from the enjoyment of this show. I hope they do another. I just wished that as an extra they would have included the old SMAP Saint Seiya musical (as bad as I hear it is).
