THE WORLD'S GREATEST FIRST LOVE V5

SEKAIICHI HATSUKOI V5
by Shungiku Nakamura
Masamune Takano is the boss—and first love—of rookie shojo manga editor Ritsu Onodera. But Ritsu also has a fiancée, An Kohinata, whom he was betrothed to as a child. When Takano finds out about her, his relationship with Ritsu hits the rocks, but Ritsu manages to salvage the wreckage. Now Ritsu has to attend his first formal company dinner party, where he runs into An! She confesses (again), and Ritsu turns her down (again)—but this time Takano overhears An when she accuses Ritsu of stubbornly clinging to his old flame from high school, who is none other than Takano himself!

THE WORLD'S GREATEST FIRST LOVE V6
Masamune Takano is the boss—and first love—of rookie shojo manga editor Ritsu Onodera. One day, sick of Takafumi Yokozawa’s relentless badgering about his feelings for Takano, Ritsu snaps back that he actually hates him, not realizing Takano is nearby! In reality—and unknown to Takano—Ritsu is finally coming to terms with how he feels about his old flame. Spurred on by Ritsu’s painful words, Takano makes a clear decision regarding his relationship with Yokozawa.

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...!
