    Not looking for a translation, but actually in what order a Japanese magazine with columns like the page I've attached is read? From top right column or top left column?
    It's an interview I'm currently translating, and this is just the first page out of three.
    Any help would be appreciated greatly!

    Generally speaking, it could be either, but in this particular case the middle column starts with a phrase that could only be preceded by the column on the left.

    That's exactly what I thought! I'm not fluent yet though, so I could've been mistaken.
    Honestly thank you so much for taking the time to help!

    Horizontal writing is typically left-right.
