I did a little fixup in Gimp to show how the periods and ellipses should appear (though actually the ellipses I see in manga are three dots in the space of one character: this: … (but centered) rather than this: ・・・)

In vertical text, the period and comma are placed in the top right corner of the kanji box, rather than the bottom left corner.

Although as I said, manga rarely uses 。 at the end of sentences. Other punctuation marks (particularly ! and ?) are common, although commas are rarely used as well.

The Ranma 1/2 manga uses 。 and 、 regularly. Must be an exceptional case.

Are you sure it uses 。? If it does, that would certainly make it unusual among the manga I have read.

The only manga I own in Japanese, 史上最強の弟子ケンイチ, uses 。 and 、at least sometimes (though !, !!, !? and ellipses are far more common ways to end sentences.) Checking the sample chapters at http://websunday.net, Detective Conan didn't seem to have any 。 and only a few 、, but a couple of other manga I checked had occasional 。 in them.

This time I drew a whole page. B)

Here's the translation. Please remember to correct me if/when I'm wrong.

Chibi-chan:
こうふく して 下さい
Please surrender.

Kazuki-san:
やだ
No.

Chibi-chan:
さて・・・始めましょうか
Well then, let's begin?
あの馬鹿
That idiot...

Kazuki-san:
勝たなければ いけない、 一輝!
You must win, kazuki! (he is speaking about himself)
はい!
Yes! (why I translated this...??)

Chibi-chan:
これはどうですか?
How about this?

Kazuki-san
まさか!?
You don't say! (I'm not sure how I should translate this one to English)

Chibi-chan
混沌の触り!!!
Touch of chaos!!! :p


Kanji used:

下(さい) - ku(dasai) - please

始(めます) - haji(memasu) - to begin

馬鹿 - baka - fool, idiot

勝(ちます) - ka(chimasu) - to win

一輝 - kazuki - one+shining (name)

混沌 - konton - chaos

触り - sawari - touch


Edit:
Changes applied, thanks guys. B)

こおふくしましてください>>こうふくしてください
勝ちなければ>>勝たなければ

I found this one hard to read without using the magnifier tool.

I can't recall ever hearing いいえ to deny a request, but my experience is quite limited. やだ would be the more manga typical expression for "no!".

To me, やだ as a response to that sort of thing sounds feminine or childish, but that might be just me. いいえ sounds better to my ear.

This is actually pretty cool. Make your own manga and put Japanese text in to help you practice... :D B)
