There was a time when he didn't know the World Cup from a sippy cup.

Step by Step

Whistle! Vol. 7

Everybody has a dream, and for Shô Kazamatsuri, that dream is simple: he wants to be the best soccer player he can possibly be. An inspiration to everyone he meets, the indefatigable spark plug won't quit until he leads Josui Junior High to victory!Though the season is still young, Shô has already learned the value of teamwork. He understands that an outstanding singular effort isn't always enough to ensure a winning record. The rest of Josui's squad, however, is still grappling with the whole team unity concept. This flaw becomes amplified during a match against Iwa Tech, an opponent that takes pride in its impenetrable line of defense. It'll take the efforts of more than one or two players to get close to Tech's goal. It's time that Shô and his crew finally put their individual differences aside to form a unified team.

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...!
