Yakitate!! Japan Volume 4

Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 4
The Pantasia Rookie Tournament is in full swing with Kazuma going up against a daunting opponent in every respect--Tsukino's half-sister Mizuno and rival for control of the entire Pantasia chain! Mizuno is ready to knock Kazuma out of the ring with her super-tasty-- and super-expensive to make--patented melon bread. Can Kazuma compete against this high-class recipe with a can of regular old melon juice? Plus, some exciting bonus info on the origins of Ken Matsuhiro, the afro-sporting manager of the Pantasia South Branch!

The drama escalates in the third round of the Pantasia Rookie Tournament when Kazuma's masked and muscle-bound opponent blows the judges away with his animal-themed bread in the shape of a magnificent dragon. Will Kazuma's contribution, a cute green turtle, be delicious enough to throw the judges into a deadlock? And just how many half-sisters does Tsukino actually have?! Yet another turns up, this one unapologetically evil, and begins to stir up a little mischief!

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...!
