Can I make you a question? Is it really hard the reading a manga from the
right to the left? I don't think so. In Italy, almost the half (no,
something less) of the manga published (and they are really a lot of titles)
are published in such a way. To take the habit of reading as japanese do, is
very fast (a matter of a little minutes; I can't believe that a person can
spend much more to learn).
