In the article, it never said anything about the "manga brain" quickly read through the manga. it just says that he read through it smoothly rather than stopping at every text he sees. he just maybe reads a little faster since he doesn't have to stop to read every word to understand whats going on in the story. he can read and look at the picture at the same time.
Isn't it reading faster if he reads it smoothly then? As opposed to the "prose mind" who stops, reads the text, and goes at it slowly?
Anyway, it's just an email and not the printed conclusion of the study. There could also be a difference in reading kanji and roman letters, since the two guys read different things (I wouldn't know, I can't read Japanese characters).
