Most manga text dialog and narration is written vertically, which dictates the vertical shapes of the speech bubbles. Some, however, such as Leviusare aimed at the international market and strive to optimize for translation and localization, therefore make use of horizontal text and speech bubbles.
Some authors, such as Kenshi Hirokaneuse Japanese text arranged horizontally to imply that a character is actually speaking in a foreign language, like English for example. In some cases, horizontal writing in text bubbles may be used to indicate that a translation convention is in use — for example, that a character is actually speaking in English instead of Japanese.

Scientific and mathematical texts are nearly always written horizontally, since in vertical writing equations must be turned sideways, making them more difficult to read.
Similarly, English language textbooks, which contain many English words, are usually printed in horizontal writing.
