yeah, it's irritating, but it also irritates me when they dont list it at all when i'm scanslating and i'm like " I KNOW this entire volume is not one chapter.. where the hell does one end and the other begin
" 'cause you know.. you dont want to cut it off too early or too late becasue then it gets sonfusing. >.> hell, i'll count the damn pages. just let me know!!
A chapter begins on the left side where the bottom third of it is filler space for the mangaka to write whatever they want. In the magazines it's used to write what's happened so far.
