THE WORLD'S GREATEST FIRST LOVE V8

SEKAIICHI HATSUKOI V8
by Shungiku Nakamura
Manga editor Ritsu Onodera continues toiling away for his demanding boss Masamune Takano, who happens to be his first love. The rookie editor has just finished his very first autograph session when Takano tells him he’s going to throw him a birthday party—and then promptly drags him all the way to Kyoto! Along the way, they cross paths with Arata Haitani, Takano’s old coworker who’s now the editor in chief for their rival Shonen Earth. Ritsu sees this as an opportunity to learn more about Takano’s past, but Takano demands that Ritsu steer clear of the other man!

THE WORLD'S GREATEST FIRST LOVE V9
Manga editor Ritsu Onodera is still working as hard as ever under his relentless editor in chief—and first love—Masamune Takano. And although his skills as an editor continue to improve, his unrealistic goal of being Takano’s equal gets the better of him, causing Ritsu to collapse from overwork. Fed up, Takano declares that, in order to prevent another such collapse, he will now have to manage Ritsu’s private life. Ritsu knows he should be mad, but Takano’s concern for his health touches him in ways he doesn’t care to admit.

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...!
