Although I am an editor, I have never used Mac. I see no reason to pay more if I can do the same with PC. Actually, I can do much more, you see. Among editors/publishers, it`s like saying heresy, even because my colleagues have made Mac a religion. God forgive them, as they don`t know what they are ...

I made it while rereading the masterpiece, so it took about one week to make the first part. American Heritage and Collins dictionaries I have installed, so I just had to visit my sister to access Wikipedia. In the end I should say it took one month.

It`s good to know you liked it.

The way you say, it seems even Western-language based graphic novels should be printed right-to-left.
I agree you have the right to advocate the Eastern reading, but there is no sense in exaggerating.

All right, I admit I am stupid.
You had already informed your email and I still looked for it in your profile.
Anyway, I've finally sent you the glossary.

It seems you're right. Inquisitors and free-thinkers would never be comrades. Anyway, it's not necessary to be a Catholic to burn people, as many protestants in the USA burned people in their inquisition (Remember Salem). Also, Torquemada, Bernardo Gui and other great inquisitors were converted Jews...

Excuse me for my ignorance, but what does "PM" mean?
I certainly can send the glossary to you, if it is about that. Just give me an email or an address to upload it.

If you'd like to burn me, tovarish, don't dare blame Catholics.

Glossary

I have made a glossary on Battle Angel Alita that I would like to distribute to readers. I would be grateful if you could take a look on it.

Let's put it in simple words:
I do advocate western reading (what I've already understood is a lonely battle here), but I do not advocate resizing or incompetent/negligent work. Unfortunately, some publishers decide to put things in the market the way thjey are better to them, not to readers.

Hello, HumanRage.

Considering what you've shown, barbwire is too gentle to them.

It makes sense.

Hi, crazyankan! I have no idea about other countries in Soth America. Here in Brazil, it's easier to have contact with Europe, USA, Japan and Russia than our neighbours. Some people don't know, but we Brazilians speak Portuguese while all our neighbours speak Spanish. Our cultures are completely dif...

It seems Batousai is anything but subtle. It`s all right if you don`t agree with me, but it`s no right to be rude. I`ve read mangas the Eastern way, but I still insist the natural reading is left-to-right (at least in a Latin-based language, as I had previously said). That point that reversing the p...

Why do we have to read backwards?

I thank you for giving us opportunity of reading such a great work. I just think you should mirror tle pages, so we could read them as we are supposed to read a Latin-based language. No problem if the kanji onomatopeias will be inverted. Once we don't read Japanese (at least, I don't)... Here in Bra...
