Roles of "Mekuri and Hiki"

Hide the panel

Manga is displayed on one page with multiple panels.

In the case of paper manga, multiple panels of 2 pages can be seen at the same time.

So, you can see the previous panel and you may know the future of the story.

Especially large panels, shocking picture panels etc. are easy to see.

The only way to hide the previous panel is to hide it on the next page.

In order to hide the panel, "Mekuri and Hiki" is important.

Introduction of the next page

The last panel before turning over the page has 2 purposes.

The first purpose is the introduction of the panel after turning over the page.

It excites the panel after turning over the page.

To prevent readers from stopping reading

The second purpose is to make readers feel like turning pages.

At the end of the page, there is a high possibility that the reader will cease to read.

At the end of the page, when you put a panel that hooks the reader, the reader wants to turn over the page. In other words, it will prevent readers from stopping reading.

There are few people to read on double page

For Manga displayed on a smartphone or tablet, "Mekuri and Hiki" is also important.

However, a little caution is required.

When reading manga on a smartphone or tablet, you can choose to read in "double page" or "single page".

Because manga is displayed larger by reading on single page, few people read manga on double page.

Compatible panel layout

Therefore, it is necessary to make a panel layout corresponding to both single page and double page.

Basically, just like paper manga, you should make "Mekuri and Hiki" based on double page. In particular, the panel hidden on the next page needs to be based on the double page.

However, it is better to put "the panel introducing the next page" and "the panel that prevents the reader from stopping reading" every page.

Summary

The importance of "Mekuri and Hiki" is as follows.

  • Hide the panel
  • Introduction of the next page
  • To prevent readers from stopping reading

In the case of manga displayed on a smartphone or tablet, the caution of "Mekuri and Hiki" are as follows.

  • Put on the "Introducing panel of the next page" and "Panel that prevents the reader from stopping reading" every page.
