At the Arctic Ocean Pillar, Hyôga faces Isaac, an old friend turned fearsome enemy. At the North Atlantic Pillar, Ikki is attacked by Sea Dragon, Poseidon's right-hand man, who seems strangely familiar. Could the evil Master of Sanctuary, whom the Knights defeated in their first epic battle, have returned to life? Seiya's beloved partner, Marin, confronts Poseidon and is overwhelmed by his godlike power. But Poseidon has yet to fully awaken, and another man controls him...a man the Knights may already know.

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...!
