It's officially released digitally!

Original: It took me nearly a week to be told this and realized I somehow missed it, but in the Weekly Shonen Jump issue from Viz of 11-25-13, Viz confirmed the manga will be put out digitally soon in a bit about Brave Soldiers:



"Good news, manga fans! The manga will be released in digital format soon!"

Anyone else excited for this? I know several people who wanted to get into the series, but never could due it a chunk of it going out of print.

Wasn't the manga called Knights of the Zodiac instead of Saint Seiya?
Anyway, it's great news and I'm enjoying the game.

Well, yeah, but that's solely because it was being released when DiC was doing their dub of the anime on Cartoon Network. It still had Saint Seiya on the covers under that title. Had to try and grab the fans of the show.

I hope these do well so Viz will pick up the sequel and the spinoffs. Could always use more Saint Seiya.

I really did enjoy the manga myself. It started a tad slow as Kuru was still figuring out what he wanted to do with the series...but when it picks up, stuff gets insane.

It's in my Top 10 Jump Manga of all time list:

Fist of the North Star, Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, Yu-Gi-Oh!, One Piece, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, and Toriko.

Could see replacing One Piece with One-Punch Man if Jump's digital stuff counts.

But yeah, love the series.

Well, for those who care, Viz just put out Volume 3, so I'm going to go read that again. It's never too soon for Phoenix Ikki.

Volumes 8 and 9 are out as well, they're releasing these at a good rate. I do so love reading the manga, regardless of the number of times I do.

Volumes 10, 11, and 12 are out, we got two out today, which is pretty cool. The books continue to be in Viz's top 10 releases of a given week, and I hope that continues to be the case.

Really? Did Viz say so? That would be rather nice, I couldn't complain (well, besides being behind).
