Manga (漫画) is the Japanese word for comic. In the English speaking world the term refers to any comic of Japanese origin. (Unaltered) manga is read from right to left, mimicing the older of the current Japanese writing systems. Although many translations and scanlations flip the images to make manga seem more familier to casual comic fans, this proccess is very unpopular with the majority of manga fans, as it is clearly not "how the artist intended".
