    Help me with my experiment

    This could be a new project we'd do. The Naruto -> Comic Project :P. Okay, what I want you to do is read the following pages (chapter 315, page 14), and tell me which one reads the nicest. Also, why.

    Thanks in advance.

    I didn't notice you inverted the sequence in order to fit US reading style. But I read them the same. I like altered version cuz feels like normal comics.

    But then again I get confused cuz I still follow the sequence from right to left!!

    Its being so long reading manga that I still keep reading it that way!

    Original to win...you should leave it as it is...also like 99% of the people are used to japanese reading already and they will just get confused everytime they read you release...also you somehow change everything...even its just inverting :/

    Re: Help me with my experiment

    Well, a local bookshopkeep told me that most of the kids leave the store bitching about how the TV-series comics (aka, manga) are inverted. So I assumed that we, the Naruto-scanlating community, could reach a greater croud by also providing US and European eyes with what they're used to.

    If you can't understand what I'm saying, neither can I .

    But in fact there is no age limit to who's watching naruto. Its probably be a good idea to expand the kind of people watching the naruto manga. There many people that start watching the anime and then jump to the manga. (umm..me for instance).

    But then again nobody in this forum is making profit by it either, so it would more likely the moderators call on what to do!

    I will support it if they continue to do it. It brings a challenge for those who are managing the graphics on this manga.

    Re: Help me with my experiment

    In panels with more than one text bubble, if you invert the panels you would also have to invert the text bubbles inside. Like in the first panel, kakashi says "those matched with wind are good with wind element jutsu, lightning with lightning element." before he says "chidori is a lightning element jutsu, for example." So in the second page its wrong. But I think most people, me included, prefer and are used to the japanese style. Keeping it that way would make those complaning kids learn a little bit more about japanese culture.. even though its not really that important a part of culture.. And if they complain, then its just their bad.

    Hehe, well there is no age limit for the people who are watching/reading naruto...but for general if you buy mangas they tell you in which order you have to read it. Also its hard for me to understand why someone would be bitching around because he cant read his usual way of reading. Also if you're interesed in mangas then everything will be in that order and you will get used to it after reading the first chapters.

    Re: Help me with my experiment

    It makes no difference what orientation it is afaic, but I suppose you should leave it in the Japanese orientation as that's how everyone here is used to reading Naruto now.

    Also, you really should use a smaller font so that the words remain well within the speech bubbles. If that font doesn't look so good at a smaller size then i suggest using ComicCraft's wildwords. (I can send you the font if you don't have it)
