Hot Gimmick VIZBIG Edition Vol. 1: Hot Gimmick VIZBIG Edition, Volume 1

Hot Gimmick VIZBIG Edition Volume 1

Hot Gimmick VIZBIG Edition, Volume 1
A Collection of Volumes 1 - 3! Unlike most shojo, Hot Gimmick isn't all sweet boys and rose petals. It's much more real and complex and sometimes even chilling! The artwork is top-notch, the drama is high-tension, and I couldn't help but keep on rooting for the hapless heroine, Hatsumi, as she deals with real-life problems: family ties, blackmail, awkward first kisses, and a very disapproving landlady. What's not to love?

"This comic hooked my little sister and me faster than we could say, "Oh no she didn't!" --Becky Cloonan, artist of Demo, AmericanVirgin, and the creator of East Coast Rising Miki Aihara turned the manga world upside down with her salacious, outrageous, and funny hit series. If you think being a teenager is hard, wait until you read Hot Gimmick. Hatsumi's troubles with school, life, and love are so full of twists and turns, it'll make your head spin. With more (love) triangles than you can throw a geometry book at, these Tokyo boys and girls are really messed up!

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...!
