Death Match in the Master's Chamber!
The Bronze Knights have penetrated to the innermost palace of Sanctuary, where the last and most dangerous Gold Knight awaits their challenge. To avenge his master, Shun volunteers to face Aphrodite, the Pisces Knight, alone. But both Seiya and Shun fall victim to Aphrodite's treacherous Demon Rose attacks, which, like Aphrodite himself, are as deadly as they are beautiful. Aphrodite is named after the goddess of love, and only the power of love can save Seiya from the roses' poison...Beyond the final palace waits the elusive Master of Sanctuary, the only man who can remove the fatal silver arrow from Princess Sienna's heart. But who is the mysterious, masked Master? What are his true plans for the Knights? And does he really have the power to save Princess Sienna's life?

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...!
