DON'T BE CRUEL 2-IN-1 EDITION V2 (INCLUDES V3 & V4)

HIDOKUSHINAIDE
by Yonezou Nekota
Maya and Nemugasa are now officially lovers, but it’s the summer of their third year of high school, meaning even more studying for college entrance exams. Their relationship is reduced to stealing kisses at lunch and the occasional sleepover. Stressed out and desperately wanting some alone time, the couple winds up having a massive—even dangerous?—misunderstanding! Things only get worse when the two eventually end up attending separate colleges and can no longer see each other every day. How will Nemugasa handle Maya’s continued popularity with the ladies? And what will Maya do when Nemugasa makes a new friend at college?

Polite and proper college student Akira Takanashi has a secret. Back in high school, he fell deeply in love with his teacher but was spurned. Now, whenever the pain of his heartbreak gets to be too much, he finds comfort in the arms of med student and notorious playboy Shimakawa—very adult comfort. Shimakawa would gladly go out with him, but Akira’s past heartbreak means he insists on keeping things strictly physical—well, until his obsessed younger brother Jutta arrives to disrupt this comfortable routine!

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...!
