I just downloaded hellsing manga volume 1, and I read text baloons from left to right like anything else(first baloons to the left then those on the right side), but it not looks good then I started reading first right baloons then left ones and it was much better.

So someone tell me wich one is correct.

Well I'd guess that in Manga they just translated the text inside the speech bubbles but they didn't rearrange the boxes. Chinese people read book right to left (they also start at what we think of as the back) so if I were you I'd read right ot left.

It really depends on the print, but in the DB manga, when you open it the wrong way, it says this:

<some yada 'bout having the book the wrong way around>

Unless those books are released as freeware on the internet, providing a link for those is as bad as providing a link for warez Milos.

Now I have no clue because I don't read such foreign language, but would advise that you remove the link if the idea was simply to "share the wealth"...

When I clicked on the link it gave me a very garbled language, and I assumed it was an Asian language because I don't even have the right font installed on my system. Thus could not understand a single word of it or even less know if there was an english version...
