Light novel on the left, manga on the right

– size of light novel is smaller

– different author. This light novel story is different from the manga

– since this is a text that has been translated into English, it reads left to right. In Japan, it would be right to left

Manga

– despite being already translated, manga still reads from right to left

– Japanese comics
