I don't really buy much manga.

But I bought the first three volumes of Pluto recently since I found them at a used book store in pristine condition for half the cover price.

My "manga series that I bought on a whim and will never bother buying the rest of" collection grows steadily. When I see something interesting in a bookstore I might buy it, but when I consider how much it would cost to actually collect it all I quickly decide to forget about it.

I have only one complete long-ish series(Eden) and that's only because it took like seven years to come out and I started buying it when I was 14.

Fuck this thread made me look for online manga shops in my country and it wouldn't be that expensive to finish Pluto(it's actually selling for nearly the same price I bought it used) and buy the couple volumes of NGE I'm missing.

And I should probably start buying Mushishi and Otoyomegatari if I want to see more manga I actually like being brought over... but those are expensive. And there's Girl Friends that actually gives me hope of seeing some actually good yuri manga here someday.

Fuck, just when I managed to save some money.

I'm not from the States, I'm talking about the local market in my country.

But hell, I started looking, and there's some interesting stuff going on. In addition to Girl Friends, Iono the Fanatics of all things got licensed, there are finally more Sheeky Forums relevant manga like Mahou Tsukai no Yome and Horimiya showing up, and for some completely insane reason one small publisher decided to do Kei Toume's Hitsuji no Uta. Also motherfucking Bradherley's Coach, but that's at least a bit less unexpected since Blade of the Immortal was one of the first longer running adult manga here if I remember correctly.

Considering I've been buying localized manga since 2002 and barely managed to fill a single shelf because of lack of interesting material, it sure is a welcome change.

All of mine are in boxes atm. And it's too late at night to at least take a picture of all the boxes.

I'd make the non-localizedfags jealous, because some of them are original Japanese tankabons. Can't read a lick of Japanese, but whatever.

I pretty much only buy mango during vacations, and at Book Off. I really want to complete Aku no Hana, Aria and Zetsubou Sensei, but I'll probably wait till next time rather than importing.
Besides that, I just buy anything that looks interesting, with a focus on things that have good art, artists I know, and/or furigana. It's 100円 a piece so at most I'm wasting space in my luggage that could've gone towards another manga.

How much are the English volumes?

There's probably multiple factors. I myself have a substantial collection, but I've never had it all in one place and unboxed long enough to take a picture. A good chunk of it was a dollar at a local used boostore, and I got three boxes with 30 manga in each for 75$ once. Random and mostly uninteresting, but still worth it.

Now the collection in my shelf looks like ass but I'm really proud that I have it.

I honestly think someone asked me that exact question last time I posted and the answer is no. I really enjoy the series but for some reason just kind of dropped off.

That was one of my main reasons for quitting collecting too though. Once Tokyopop up and died with a bunch of my collections unfinished it sort of ruined the desire to buy.

Bidwell

@MPmaster
They have home delivery. But you'd need to fit seven feet of flat boxes into or on top of your car.

For manga I'd specifically get one or two more shelves than included in the basic unit. If you need two Billys filled to the brim, you could get a third to salvage shelves from, save a few cents and sell the remainder on Craigslist.

Stare through ikea.com and make up your mind before ordering or driving there.

I never even knew Tokyopop went under until just a couple months ago. Then again, I kind of walked away from the anime and manga scene back in like, 2009/2010 and only came back this year.

Had to read up on why they disappeared, and it sounds like a big part of it was because they were trying to pull lots of artists in to publish their own comics, and fucked them over in the the contracts.

And part of it was because of financial issues linked to Borders and they both pretty much collapsed at the same time.

All volumes of Sankarea except 10 and 11
and the 3 volumes of Steins;Gate by Yomi Sarachi.

I hope they translated Light Novels so I could get Danganronpa Zero and Danganronpa Kirigiri.

I don't read books which were not written in my language
That's culture if I've ever seen it.
Of course it's better to read manga in Japanese and being an elitist is good too but there's a limit.
You're right about ominibus editions though, at least if they're not the only available editions.

Not gonna post my collection again, I'll post it after I take better pics with the new phone.

he doesn't know
Aria sold so badly it was suspended for 7 years or so between vol 8 and 9.
And they printed 2 double-vloume issues (9+10, 11+12) to limit the economic loss when somebody back at StarComics took pity on it and finished the serie.

The best thing about that publisher is that they don't have a OOP concept save for new editions replacing former ones and a couple of exceptions.Aria + Aqua are one of them.
You can find them only in the "black market" of second hand stuff.

Save for lucky deals, don't expect to pay less than 100+ euros for it, and i'm probably underestimating that.
And dear god buy only if you find the whole serie in a bulk or you'll have to wander for years before completing it.
