    7 should be 5, also the text balloons are read from right to left starting from up to down.
    here is another example:


    lets say a text balloon is left, then another one slightly bellow but to the right, in that case the one thats higher takes priority.


    edit: have fun reading berserk! its 1 heck of a manga. too bad it gets released so slowly its still not finished

    Surely 7 comes between 5 and 4?
    Note that in the second image, some scanlators (scanner + translater) write the text bubbles from left-to-right even in mangas that are read right-to-left. So always be careful with text bubbles in a specific panel when reading a new manga, because some mangas use a different order for multiple text bubbles in one panel.
