I"s Volume 3

Bitter Summer
Angst-addled high school student Ichitaka was hoping for a romantic hot springs getaway with the lovely Iori, his number-one-crush-turned-teen-model-fat chance. Their dynamic duo has quickly become a fantastic foursome now that his childhood friend (and über-babe) Itsuki, along with his nebbish buddy Teratani, are tagging along. A starry summer night stroll affords Ichitaka the perfect chance to confess his feelings for Iori, but his declaration de amor seems to fall on deaf ears. Will he get back at Iori by hooking-up with a headstrong (and bouncy) beach bunny?!

October 3rd

I"s Vol. 4

Ichitaka's birthday is around the corner, and there's only one thing he wants: his beloved Iori--wearing nothing but a ribbon and a smile. Sadly, that won't be happening anytime soon. Barring his initial wish, Ichitaka will settle for a delightful evening on the town with Iori (most likely, with her clothes on), but his childhood friend Itsuki shows up and totally ruins the mood. Bummed out and bedraggled, Ichitaka manages to ask Iori out again, but she has already made other plans! Will Ichitaka let the b-day blues get the best of him, or will a kiss from Itsuki make him change his mind about his entire angst-addled existence?

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...!
