Case Closed Vol. 28: The Mermaid Vanishes

Case Closed Volume 28

The Mermaid Vanishes
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!

Case Closed Vol. 29

Conan isn't sure whether to trust Jodie Saintemillion, the American high school teacher whose ditzy blonde exterior conceals a calculating mind. When a bus is hijacked by desperate criminals, Ms. Saintemillion turns out to be cannier than Conan ever imagined, revealing a head for crime solving and a body for kicking butt. But Anita can't help noticing that wherever Conan's beautiful, mysterious new ally goes, the Syndicate never seems to be far behind…

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...!
