Gimmick! Volume 4

Gimmick!, Volume 4
When they agreed to help protect endangered railway heiress Kasumi Kobayakawa from her scheming uncle, Kohei and his buddy Kannazuki never imagined that they'd be the ones in need of rescuing--least of all from the captain of a fishing boat! Will some of Kohei's impromptu FX magic help lure the real villain out into the open? Later, a young, wannabe special effects artist is caught in the middle of a gun-smuggling scheme revolving around a prop weapon that's been modified to fire real bullets. Kohei takes the young boy under his wing and agrees to teach him a thing or two about how to use special effects to get out of tough situations.

Gimmick! Vol. 5

A devious diet food company, whose products actually cause significantly more harm than good, dupes Kohei into disguising one of their models so she appears normal. But this isn't the first time Kohei's special skills have been abused. Back in his Hollywood days, a nefarious game company made the naive makeup genius work on a project that had a life-altering influence on all those involved in it. Is Kohei destined for a repeat performance of that emotionally scarring incident?

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...!
