Case Closed Vol. 27: Game On

Case Closed Volume 27

Game On
Conan and his friends take a well-deserved break at a video arcade--until one unlucky gamer is found dead in the seat of a virtual-reality game. As Conan and Rachel investigate, they're joined by an unlikely new accomplice: Rachel's English teacher, Ms. Saintemillion. Outside the classroom, the fast-talking American turns out to have an itchy trigger finger--at least when it comes to video games--and a suspiciously keen interest in Conan. Has the shrunken sleuth stumbled upon a valuable new ally...or an enemy agent?

The Mermaid Vanishes

Case Closed Vol. 28

While Conan tries to prove that a corpse found deep in the woods was the victim of more than just a hunting accident, the Junior Detective League gains a new member: a curious bear cub! Then Detective Moore's office is graced by a very traditional lady with very traditional--and very deadly--sword skills. And at a place called Mermaid Island, a woman is found hanged under a waterfall. It seems the legendary mermaid's curse has struck again...unless Conan and Harley Hartwell can find an all-too-human culprit!

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...!
