I'm assuming there's certain punctuation involved in this sentence, but I don't really understand what changes in the process of switching from horizontal to vertical writing.

  • In vertical writing, the ー becomes |, and punctuation is right aligned. I can't think of anything else that changes but perhaps others will add to the comments. – G-Cam Feb 26 '19 at 14:14

This sentence has no punctuation. Only ー will flip to a vertical line, the rest stays the same.

  • What if i want it to be two vertical columns of text, where do i cut the sentence off? Is a row of "ワンピース" and one of "は実在する" correct? – MarcoThePhoenix Feb 26 '19 at 13:15
  • @MarcoThePhoenix, broadly, yes -- that results in two columns of the same length, as ワンピース / は実在する, five characters each. In terms of writing style, particles often remain attached to their preceding word, so in some ways that looks a little funny with the は starting the second column. However, for the aesthetics of the visual balance, breaking after ワンピース works well. – Eiríkr Útlendi Feb 26 '19 at 16:46

There is a tool here that could help you out:

  • This works for multiple lines as well. – sazarando Feb 26 '19 at 18:24
