Case Closed Volume 44

How to Steal a Wonder
Serena’s wealthy Uncle Jirokichi unveils his most prized possession: the Blue Wonder, a legendary blue gem said to possess mystical powers. It’s a prize no thief can resist—and that’s exactly what Jirokichi is hoping! But when he uses the gem as bait to trap the infamous Kaito Kid, he gets far more than he bargained for. Fortunately, Conan has his own grudge against the Kid, and this time he’s determined to get his man!

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...!
