    Re: Manga: Left or Right

    Another thing against the flipping of artwork to left to right, is when people are wearing Kinomos.
    Because in Japan, Kinomo's are always worn with the left side overlapping the right, and corpses are dressed in the reserve.

    So by flipping the manga artwork, you have people walking around wearing kinomo in ther style used to dress the dead. Quite, unfortunate really.

    Because teasing boys is so much fun.

    Original, untampered material is always best. Why? Because that's how the authors/illustrators intended for it to be. That's how I see it and that's how I like it.

    Anime Facts: Great Teacher Onizuka Funny Moments
    When Murai makes Onizuka set his hair on fire, he laughs and says "He went up like Michael Jackson! Do the moonwalk!". In Okinawa, Urumi is forced to share her room with three boys that are stereotypical Gundam nerds. When Urumi confronts Onizuka about this on the beach, she complains that she had dreams about a boy named "Heero" and proceeds to drop a live snake into his swim trunks.

    I will not read a manga that reads Left to Right. Why? Because they changed the original artwork to fit the orintation of the text.
