Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. 9: tell me, I pray thee, thy name

Neon Genesis Evangelion Volume 9

tell me, I pray thee, thy name
Pride in being an Evangelion pilot--that is the essence of the Second Child, Soryu Asuka Langley. But the day she was chosen to be so was the most horrible of her life--and as that truth rises to consume her, Shinji finds a new comrade in the strange, beautiful and disturbing Kaworu Nagisa. Born on the day of the Second Impact, he has been sent directly by SEELE, which alone knows him by his real name--Tabris, the Angel of Free Will. Eva Vol. 9 contains a Japanese sound FX glossary plus a special bonus article on Kaworu, the mysterious stranger of the Evangelion story.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. 10

After a profoundly disturbing vision leads Rei to sacrifice herself in combat against the penultimate Angel, Armisael, Kaworu takes the opportunity to try to get closer to his own target. But Shinji's anger and confusion at Kaworu's advances develop into even darker feelings when events rapidly force him to come to grips with the secret behind the origin of Rei--a secret kept by the cold, brilliant mind of NERV's soul-sold genius, Dr. Ritsuko Akagi.

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...!
