Description
In 1990 (previously 1986, but Kurumada moved dates), in Elysion; the five Bronze Saints Seiya, Hyōga, Shun, Shiryū and Ikki, having wreaked havoc in the Underworld's army and succeeding in resurrecting the God Cloths, engage the god Hades in a final duel to the death.

During the battle, Hades remembers that he has seen Seiya's face before and comes to the conclusion that he faced him before. He thus starts reminiscing about his previous host body, and the story starts 247 years prior, in the 18th century.

The protagonist, the Pegasus Saint of this era, is an orphan who is best friends with a boy named Alone, the host of Hades. Former Bronze Saints Dohko and Sion, two prominent characters in Kurumada's original manga as the sole survivors of the holy war of that century, have just been promoted to Gold Saints and eventually the two duos meet.

For those who wonder The serie doing well there is now more than 35 chapter and both the story and the art are getting better and better. We are entering the real sequel events of Saint Seiya slowly but surely biggrin

While Saint Seiya is one of the first manga's I have read, Saint Seiya: Next Dimension is quite a letdown. It could not have been less than twenty years ago before I first laid eyes on the orginal series. But too bad this prequel really has stuck in the past.

The artwork is quite underwhelming, when compared to other manga. Some call it true to the roots, I call it outdated. Especially compared to the vastly more superior and pretty SS:Lost Canvas, which is showing roughly the same events as in SS:Next Dimension, the contrast is very clear.

The overall pacing does not feel right and I can't shake the feeling it could have been so much more.
