Under the Sala Trees

Knights of the Zodiac (Saint Seiya) Vol. 21

Seiya and his friends have often put their lives on the line to defend humanity and the goddess Athena. But when the deathless army of Hades invades the mortal world, mere human life may not be enough to stop it. To survive the Battle of the Gods, Athena's Knights will need the power of Heaven itself...That power is embodied in Shaka, the Gold Knight who draws his strength from Buddhism. Beneath a pair of sala trees, where the Buddha died, Shaka makes his last stand against the Specters of Hades. He's prepared to sacrifice everything and face the Gold Knights' most terrifying forbidden technique. What he learns will change the course of battle...and Knighthood...forever!

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...!
