If you don’t mind retrieving foreign language titles in your search results, but you also want to distinguish between titles written in English and titles written in a different language, make sure that you choose to display the “Language” column in both your search results and list view. The “Language” column will be blank if a title is written in English. See Display More Item Information for details.

NOTE: When ordering manga (Japanese comics) or anime (Japanese animation), keep the desired language in mind. Without choosing the option to never view foreign language titles, when you do a search for manga or anime, the Japanese editions MAY appear first in your search results. For example, a “Title Begins With” search for the popular manga series “Naruto” returns a list of Japanese titles on Page 1 (see image below). If you prefer the English translations to the original Japanese, please make sure you are not selecting items that read “(JAPANESE)” or “JAP/GRAPHIC NOVEL” in the Title column. To confirm that a title is written in English, please display the “Language” column in your search results. See Display More Item Information for details. The “Language” column will be blank if a title is written in English.
