I had a theory about the UY manga so I checked it out.

At onemanga.com the UY manga can be viewed but it is read left to right. Traditionally in manga the panels are set out to be read right to left. I thought it might have been flipped and it has, the original Japanese manga has had the artwork flipped.

Traditionally, manga are written from top to bottom and right to left, as this is the traditional reading pattern of the Japanese written language. Some publishers of translated manga keep this format, but other publishers flip the pages horizontally, changing the reading direction to left to right, so as not to confuse foreign readers or traditional comics consumers. This practice is known as "flipping". For the most part, the criticisms suggest that flipping goes against the original intentions of the creator (for example, if a person wears a shirt that reads "MAY" on it, and gets flipped, then the word is altered to "YAM"). Flipping may also cause oddities with familiar asymmetrical objects or layouts, such as a car being depicted with gas pedal on the left and the brake on the right, or a shirt with the buttons on the wrong side.

I wonder which one is true!?

Yep,the guys at ILM translations did made it clear they wanted to give us readers a more easy experience at reading UY

Heck,I havent been able to mention them guys since 2006,so it brings nostalgia to look again at their works

I prefer manga that is right to left because that is the way it was meant to be read.

Even though I don't read Manga at all, I agree with Urusei0Yatsura.

I don't really care... I'm left handed... I always have the habit to start reading magazines from Right to left... (from the end to the beginning) XD

私は本当に気にしない...私は左利き...私は常 に右から左から雑誌の読み取りを開始する癖がある. .. XDエンド(初めから)

COOL... XD
