Instead the focus was going to the left side, top panel. Meaning that the reader was displaying panels left to right instead of right to left. I don't know if it's the reader or how the order of panel reading is set by a human being. Plus there were some panels skipped altogether. Zooming in or changing the display doesn't help.
Can you give specific pages where things were wrong? I skimmed through part of the book just now and didn't notice anything out-of-order, but I didn't have time to check the entire book.
Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you but here it is. I'm reading this in panel mode, fit to panel and medium resolution, and I click "next" or "previous" to read bubble to bubble. Also my screen is 1024x768 and my screen is probably 17" non-CRT (whatever these flat panel monitors are called now)
Pg31, middle panel: the focus goes from top "He seems so...mature." to the middle but when I click on Next, it stays in the same spot but the focus moves slightly to the right. It then continues to the bottom part of that middle panel.
Pg34, second panel to the right (I just noticed that the "fit to panel" button at the top goes on and off between panels; is that normal?): despite click on Next, the focus remains on the panel where Micah and his secretary are talking. I have to click a second time for the focus to continue down.
Pg67, last panel: the focus should be in three steps since it's a vertical panel. It goes top, middle, top (again), middle (again), then bottom.
Pg71, second panel, bottom: it's doing the same thing pg31 did. This time the focus shifts slightly to the left.
Pg75, first panel: the focus should take two steps at the most for that panel. It takes three. The second step (I'm calling them steps but they're clicks of the Next button) is just shifting the focus slightly down. The third step then shows the bottom part of the panel.
Pg79, top panel: slight shifting down when clicking on Next. That second shifting isn't necessary since the first shows all of the panel and the bubbles.
Pgs89-90: here's the first major one. The focus goes from the last panel in pg89 to the second panel on pg90 (the one where Yuuki's bro tells him he had plenty of time to fool around in middle school 'cause he was a second son). The reader is displaying panels left to right, rather than right to left on pg90.
Pg99, first panel: repeat of pg75
pg104, first panel: this is almost a repeat of pg75 except that the second step goes down just a bit and on the third step, it goes back to the top of the panel. The fourth step does shift down more to the middle of the panel and it continues correctly after that.
Pg116, second panel: After the first step, the focus shifts slightly down. On the second step, it goes back up again but after that, it's fine.
Pg 163, first panel: repeat of pg75
Pg176, the whole page: here's the second major error. The page begins fine with the panel on the right but instead of continuing down (it's a vertical panel), it goes to the next panel which is on the left side of the page. It continues all the way to the bottom (what should be the end of that page) and then it goes back to the first panel with Micah's secretary. Order is all wrong.
Pg191: same as pg75
Pg206: the panels on the left side of the page are viewed in this order - top, bottom, middle.
Pg226, top pervy panel: the focus starts at the top of the panel, on the next step it shifts a bit more but on the next step, it goes back to the top.
And this last bit is more of a grammatical error. On pg230, Micah says "Let's always love each other without abandon." It should be "with abandon".
I just tried switching the viewer to 1 page, fit to page and zoom in to large and I guess I can move the page around with my pointer too.
