THE WORLD'S GREATEST FIRST LOVE V2

SEKAIICHI HATSUKOI
by Shungiku Nakamura
Rookie editor Ritsu Onodera has no interest in manga, but when he applied for a job at Marukawa Publishing, not only did he get assigned to the shojo manga department, it turns out his boss—hotshot editor Masamune Takano—is his first love from high school! Just being around Masamune is enough to throw Ritsu for a loop in both his work and private life, and Masamune isn’t helping by insisting he’s still in love with Ritsu. To complicate matters further, Takafumi Yokozawa—Masamune’s best friend and the infamous “Raging Bear” of sales—declares Masamune belongs to him! Will Ritsu really turn his back on his first love?

Are you trying to read this comic in the wrong direction?

Rtlgraphic...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...!
