THE SCENT OF APPLE BLOSSOMS V1

SHIZUKU HANABIRA RINGO NO KAORI
by Toko Kawai
Haruna, a young salesman with an allergy to alcohol, isn’t happy to be handed the account for a sake brewery. But when he pays a visit to his new client, instead of being greeted by the brewery’s notoriously cantankerous old owner, he meets Nakagawa, the handsome—but icy—man of his dreams. Now Haruna is drunk on love, and he’s desperate to convince Nakagawa that fate has brought them together. But the old brewer wants Haruna off his property by any means necessary. Are Haruna and Nakagawa destined to drink alone, or will their passion prove more intoxicating than the sake?

THE SCENT OF APPLE BLOSSOMS V2
Haruna is spending almost every day at Wakatake—and every night with Nakagawa. But even as he gets closer to Nakagawa’s eccentric sake-brewing family, Nakagawa himself remains a mystery. Is he leading a double life under Haruna’s nose? And will he be able to keep his icy cool when one of Haruna’s many ex-boyfriends shows up in Japan?

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...!
