Yakitate!! Japan Volume 20

Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 20
In the seventh round of the Yakitate!! 25 baking competition, an old rival of Kawachi's comes back to challenge him again. After his first defeat, the bitter loser abandoned his family to live in the forest with wild pigs--which could very well give him an edge in the latest competition. Can the Pantasia team trust that Kawachi's ham-handedness won't ruin their chances of taking home the bacon? Meanwhile, sweet, syrupy danger awaits, as a Dutch cook with a thing for flapjacks prepares to beat Pantasia with pancakes!

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...!
