    Good, but not Great

    This manga is a good choice if you want action and likeable characters, but if you want manga that you can read over and over, look somewhere else. It's pretty good the first time you read it but the second or third time around, boring. The storyline gets pretty old kind of fast, but it does have its moments. If you are into the classic manga from the 80s, look no further, but if you want something current, look somewhere else.

    Pegasasu Ryu sei ken (Pegasus Meteor Punch)

    A story of friendship, bravery and lots of action that is what Saint Seiya (Knights of the Zodiac) is about. Considering the horrible translation and editing that the anime has gone through having the manga is a smart choice. The best part of the manga is the battle against the 12 Gold Saints and the battle against Hades which is currently being animated in Japan. Is unfortunate that the Asgard saga wasn¿t originally in the manga but it is really cool in the Anime.

    Expectations

    I have only watched the anime and I didn't know until a few months ago that the manga was comming out. I thought that the anime was a little sexist because it's always about the guys who are doing everything and the gals are only the financal supporters or cheerleaders. I mean, I hope that the manga won't have 'Princess Siena'. Princess? And the main people are a little strange but likable. I really do like this anime and I hope that the manga will be good as well.
