Yakitate!! Japan Volume 18

It's Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 18
Sibling rivalry takes over the competition kitchen as yakuza heir apparent Kanmuri clashes with his half-brother Tsutsumi in a jam-packed battle of the bakeries. The loser will inherit their father's organized crime circle--and with Azuma out sick, team Pantasia is spread thin! Later, Azuma goes up against a seaweed scion in an attempt to incorporate the briny ingredient into his bread. Despite Azuma's best efforts to make his signature Ja-pan sea(weed) worthy, it looks like Pantasia bakery may be headed for a watery grave!

Yakitate!! Japan Vol. 19

Kazuma Azuma's team Pantasia is one defeat away from losing their shop as they enter round six of the Yakitate!! 25 baking competition. Their opponent is Mokoyama, a man in a panda suit whose silly exterior belies his great baking power...and otherworldly baking powder. If that weren't enough to bear, Azuma must teach a lesson to a spoiled mini-gourmand who insists on having his bread and eating it too. Will Team Pantasia rise to the occasion or run out of steam?

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...!
