YMMV: Tenkuu Senki Shurato

  • Awesome Music: The opening theme "Shining Soul" by Satoko Shimiasu, also her debut song.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: A rather obscure show, even in Japan, mostly due to its resemblance to Saint Seiya. Yet it has quite a following in Brazil (even though it also aired alongside Saint Seiya there - though in the same channel, so they weren't Dueling Shows in this case).
  • Ho Yay: Hyuga and Ryoma. And Reiga likes to mess with Shurato's head via sounding pretty flirty when he speaks to him, too...
  • Foe Yay: Shurato and Gai. So much that none other than CLAMP made doujinshii about them.
  • Iron Woobie: Shurato. He does NOT take the deaths of his allies well at all, and his best friend is now the Rival Turned Evil. And yet, while he cracks once in a while, he manages to not break.
  • Tear Jerker: More than one, for a super upbeat series. Specially Shurato's failed I Know You Are In There Somewhere Fights with Gai, and Renge's Alas, Poor Villain death, as well as her sister Sati's reaction when she mistakes Shurato for the killer.
    • Episode 13 is, basically, a big, giant tear.
