1634 is backwards!
« on: 01 Apr 2010, 06:12 »

I am assuming this was suppose to be a Japanese comic sort of thing (Marigold liking Yaoi and all), but they go right to left, not left to right!

At least you can see it.

All I'm getting is one inch.

I wondered when somebody would realize that.

Does "anal-retentive" have a hyphen?

You're damned right it does. And it should be "Does "anal-retentive" require a hyphen", they READ FROM right to left, and there are far too many pronouns on this page, and probably other errors, too.  Your mother is a big hippo! Hello, thinks Mr. Purple Cat! Quick! More boiling oil! Argh!

Not if it's translated by Viz Kids...

Maybe it's Manhwa?

Also I'm far more concerned about the radioactive glowing light coming out of that man's pants rather than the reading direction.

And is it just me or does the gentleman in the shorts look a fair bit like Marten?

Yep.  Wouldn't be the first time manga was flipped for western reading.
