Arata: The Legend, Volume 17
The Shinsho Kikutsune, Arata Hinohara’s most daunting foe so far, has stolen the hearing of everyone but Arata himself. Bad as this is, it’s made worse when Arata learns that music may be the weapon that can defeat his enemy. Arata and his allies work through this problem and manage to launch an effective assault on Kikutsune, only to have nature violently intervene and force Arata to act to save lives and face the very real prospect of losing the battle!

Arata: The Legend Vol. 18

Both Arata of the Hime and Arata Hinohara come under attack by members of the Six Sho, a group from Hinohara's world who found themselves in the other, gained great power, and now wish to return home for reasons more sinister than just being homesick. Arata of the Hime is tasked with protecting his classmate and friend Oribe, who turns out to be a lot more than either of them suspected, while Arata Hinohara faces perhaps his greatest challenger yet among the Six Sho—Isora, who wields the power of the written word!

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...!
