This really is unusual. I was sure ADV would pick up the manga as well for their new ADV Manga label. On the other hand having Viz and Bandai sharing a title isn't all that unusual, just look at Gundam. But to have 3 totally different unrelated companies work in different media areas of the same title, almost unheard of, I can't think of another time where this has occured without one having the master license. As far as I know each one went right to the source for their repective licenses.

Very intersting.

well......the whole Saint Seiya stuff was pretty famous, even though not heard in the US, pretty famous in Europe and South America, so naturally they would want to each take some part of it cause they want to gain as much from it as possible.....even though the manga itself is pretty much a different aternate story and the art is pretty bad (i can acutally draw better Cool )
