Though it hasn’t been easy working under Takano, Ritsu has finally decided to do his best at becoming a proper manga editor.

THE WORLD'S GREATEST FIRST LOVE V4
Ritsu Onodera, an editor in the shojo manga department of Marukawa Publishing, has the worst work environment possible, primarily because it’s run by his former first love, hotshot editor in chief Masamune Takano! To make matters worse, it’s possible that in a recent drunken stupor Ritsu went all the way with his boss. Unfortunately, thanks to an alcohol-induced blackout, he can’t remember! But time waits for no one, so work in the editorial department gears up for the year-end rush, and to add to the craziness, Takano declares that all he wants for his birthday on Christmas Eve is to go on a romantic drive with Ritsu!

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...!
