B&N, Suncoast, Waldens, a japanese market (i get coupons!), and soon in foreign bookstores. as soon as a build a better vocabulary of the language. and a lot of the time online manga sux, so i buy the crappy translations. and the craziest lenght i've ever gone to get a manga was....i took my friends and ran like 10 blocks.....WHAT? she was being a greedy, spoiled brat. i had to take it. the next day, i bought it at B&N with a coupon.

@drake220: instead of making my library buy them, i have my friends for that! we just borrow off of each other.

Is no one else irritated by the cost though? Normally, hard cover books are about $10-15!!!! These are multi-volume series that are paperback! I mean, couldn't they find a way to make it cheaper?!?!
It's petty larceny. mad.gif Personally, I would love to borrow off friends but i'm the only human being I'm in physical contact with that's into anime/manga. Being a loner is expensive...

I know how you feel, I'm the only one that likes manga and my brother but he doesn't have the money to buy it, I only have 2 volumes XD and I plan to buy more but not for now, I will have to save for it.

I get my manga from B&N or Borders....they tend to be closest to my house. I only have one series, though...because most are soo freaking long, and I'm NOT spending hundreds of dollars on graphic novels...that's just silly (I'd rather spend that amount on the dvd's of the series).I mean, comparing the cost of manga to a regular book that I read..the manga IS cheaper per novel, but if you calculate the whole series...yeah...it's getting kinda out of the comfort zone as far as my price range is concerned. For some of the longer manga series, I try to find versions online, or borrow a book or two from a friend. Sure, it may be a cheap way of doing it, but I'm a stingy college student laugh.gif

I mostly buy Mangas at Borders (infact 98.9% of the time.) Suncoast and Waldens also, although their far away, so I rarely get out there. ( I also found some 5$ mangas in a store in Wyoming once...)

I usually don't buy manga I just go to borders and sit down and read whatever manga I'm into at the time.But when I do buy
manga it's from a local comic shop because I get a discount.

I get most of mine at the local Borders Express (formerly Waldenbooks tongue.gif ) We have a Barnes and Noble in the area, too, but...well, the selection is pretty...pathetic compared to Borders. The B&N over here is twice as big and has like 2-4 huge bookshelves, but they have 6 or 7 of the same volume at once instead of investing in other series. The Borders is in the mall here, with 2x less shelves, but they have a huge selection! Even the other book store in the mall has a wider variety...

I get my manga from the following: Borders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, or the place that scared me the most...Kinokuniya Bookstores...Why? I ran into an aisle with titles in Japanese characters and freaked...


*cough* But yeah, I get my manga usually from Borders.

I usually get mine either online or in a Border's Express at a mall a ways from where I live. I can't find manga anywhere close by! The gas to get to the mall costs more than the manga (and that's saying something!)!
