My opinion on stuff like that: I imagined stuff completely different too, but I'm not going to let the manga ruin my view of them. The way the artist of the manga pictured them (totally blanking on the name :P) is different from mine, but that doesn't mean either one of us is wrong...does that make any sense?

A simpler version; just like with any other novel, there is no, offical canon version of what the characters look like (not even in the movies). Everyone's vision of what they look like is different because everyone's mind is different.

Exactly. I was taught this at age six when I saw the Harry Potter movies and thought I had pictured Snape "wrong", until my mom told me it was just another version. And, I have always taken this to heart, as with most things told when I was six...

Hmm...very true.

But I still find it hard to read the manga because it looks so different. Not that it's wrong or anything but my mind just have a hard time accepting this new view.

I'm not totally sure about that. I mean, it's not Japanese, and it reads left to right, but it's drawn in a manga style, isn't it?
