Execution!
When the Grande Foundation sent 100 orphans around the world to train as Knights, one unfortunate orphan was sent to the most horrific place on Earth, the terrifying Death Queen Island. He left a gentle boy but returned a twisted killer, hell-bent of destroying every other Knight--including the little brother he once loved! Can the Knights of the Zodiac withstand his brutal attacks and find a way to bring back some part of the kindly boy who once was? Or will they simply meet their demise at his vindictive hands?

Knights of the Zodiac (Saint Seiya) Vol. 6

Pegasus Knight Seiya, and the rest of the Knight of the Zodiac, are warriors who put their lives in peril to defend the universe from the forces of evil. This means they will do whatever is necessary to win, even if they are killed in the process. Seiya finds out the hard way what this means when he is forced to bury some of his bravest comrades who have fallen in the battle. While he is lamenting their demise, on the rocky beach where he buried them, he is suddenly attacked! Were Seiya's friends really killed...and who was on the beach with them? There is trickery afoot, and Seiya comes to the horrible conclusion that he could very well be responsible for their deaths! Now he must confront those responsible in a fearsome showdown!

Are you trying to read this comic in the wrong direction?

...Gotcha! In keeping with the original Japanese format, manga are meant to be read from right to left, starting in the upper-right corner.

Unlike English, which is read from left to right, Japanese is read from right to left, meaning that action, sound effects, and word-balloon order are completely reversed... something which can make readers unfamiliar with Japanese feel pretty backwards themselves. For this reason, manga or Japanese comics published in the U.S. in English have sometimes been published "flopped" - that is, printed in exact reverse order, as though seen from the other side of a mirror.

By flopping pages, U.S. publishers can avoid confusing readers, but the compromise is not without its downside. For one thing, a character in a flopped manga series who once wore in the original Japanese version a T-shirt emblazoned with "MAY" (as in "the merry month of") now wears one which reads "YAM"! Additionally, many manga creators in Japan are themselves unhappy with this process, as some feel the mirror-imaging of their art skews their original intentions.

We are proud to bring you manga presented in the original unflopped format. For now, though, click to the left and let the adventure begin...!
