    You don't have to. Things just get really confusing if you don't.

    In everyone of Viz's books (in the recent years), they toss in a little guide for new readers.

    http://www.viz.com/onlinemanga/om.ph...mon-hi-preview
    Read the panel over on the right hand side, that covers the basics. Follow the numbers to get a basic idea of a standard manga page, in traditional Japanese format. Not all pages are exactly like that, but it's a pretty good and short summery. The ones in the actual books are a bit longer in explaining, though.
    Know Chinese or Japanese? Want to help with Shaman King, Jyuki Ningen Jumbor, or Butsu Zone translations?
    See this page for details!

    Also, if you read manwha, it is left to right.
