This poll was suggested by our member Di27. The whole point of this poll is to choose the option you'd prefer in the situation that YOU can choose that the original source reads left to right / right to left. As in would you prefer everything to be always done left to right, just like American comics? Or the reverse where everything is like manga?
The issue is if you could draw and create your own stories, would it read left to right or right to left?

(And I'm gonna bet over 90% of the people who vote in this poll will never understand the actual reason for this...and will instead vote for "right to left" because it's "pure")

You can discuss this poll on our forums here:

As in, Manhwa would be left to right and Manga would be right to left etc...

I don't have a problem with reading from left to right or right to left. I'm already picky enough with characters and plot lines, if something that trivial bothers me, I should probably give up reading.

I've been reading manga for 15 years now, from right to left. Even when I'm reading manwha I'd be starting from the right automatically and then go "huh... what oh crap I'm reading it wrong."

For me it depends on where it was originated from. If it was made in america, I'd want it to be in left to right. If it were made in Japan, I'd want it to be in right to left. Or I'd just want the comic to be published in its original format. smile

I think I'm gonna agree with what most other people here are saying. keep manga right to left (they do that because of the way the Japanese language is read, right? I don't know for sure) and manhwa and American comic books left to right. Just keep it the way it was bigrazz

You guys didn't understand the point of this poll at all...
There was a reason there was nothing like "The way it was originally" or "Don't care"

My preference is left to right. That's one of the reasons I tend toward manhwa. Of course like everyone I like things to be in their original form.

It is the weirdest feeling considering you aren't even supposed to be reading that way.
