Manga tales are typically printed in black-and-white, although some full-color manga exist (e.g. Colorful). In Japan, manga are usually serialized in large manga magazines, sometimes containing lots of stories, each presented in one episode to be carried on in the next issue. If the series is profitable, collected chapters may be republished in paperback textbooks called tankōbon.

In general, manga stories flow from main to bottom and from right to left. A few publishers of translated manga stay with this original format. Further publishers mirror the pages horizontally before printing the translation, changing the looking through direction to a more "Western" left to right, in order not to confuse foreign audience or traditional comics-consumers. This method is known as "flipping".For the almost all part, criticism suggests that flipping goes against the original targets of the creator (for instance, if an individual would wear a t-shirt that says "MAY" on it, and gets flipped, then the words is redefined to "YAM"), who might be naive of how awkward it is to read comics while the eyes must flow through the pages and word in opposite directions, resulting in an experience that's quite excellent from reading something that streams homogeneously. Flipping can even set off oddities with familiarized asymmetrical objects or layouts, resembling an auto becoming represented with the gas pedal on the left and the brake on the right, or a t-shirt with the buttons on the wrong side, however these problems are minor in comparison with the unnatural reading flow, as well as some of them might be solved with an orientation work that goes beyond just translation and blind switching.
