I did once.
Bought the Azumanga Daioh omnibus, a few volumes of Excel Saga and Yotsuba&! and the DVD set of FLCL.

Never bought anything after that, I'm poor and I don't want people to know about my chinese media addiction.

Once bought a volume of School Rumble in English, then many years later bought the third volume of the Love Live manga in Japan. Also bought volume 1 of Shana and TR.

I pre-ordered Twintail BD2 because I want a second season, or at least LN translation.

Also I sometimes buy manga. I don't think I need to explain why I do that

I only buy obscure artbooks like that one with yotsuba drawn into real pictures over multiple seasons

Only manga. Buying anime is too expensive and not worth it at all.
>>
>>120244117
found a used set of captain tyler dvds for cheap. bought that. quality is nice. show is fun.
>>
I bought Eva for some reason and I got Gankutsuou and the Animatrix for free. More importantly though, I own the Hidamari manga, and I've bought a whole bunch of LNs. Got raws of Haruhi and the last two Oregairu volumes, too.
>>
I bought a lot of anime in the past, but now I don't bother. It seems like the prices don't change but the quality of the packaging/content deteriorates over time. I don't have much manga but I plan to buy more of it, and I buy the odd light novel volume every now and again.

I buy manga kind of regularly. There are a lot of newer releases of works that have never seen the light of day online (in scans or translations). On top of that I'll buy stuff that I already know I like just to have a physical copy of it.
>>
>>120244117
I brought volumes 1-5 of Rosario Vampire. Now they just rot in a box under my bed of shame.
>>
I import manga I really like and buy some cheap copies from my local store.

I pay full price for gundam the origin because they are fantastic though, the water coloured pages are beautiful.
>>
>>120244117
>Have you bought anime or manga?
Yeah, I have an assortment of manga and a few anime. Most of them are from the 2000's, back when I had really shitty Internet connection so even downloading and MP3 could take hours.

I still get the occasional manga, typically they are gifted to me though.

Only anime I've ever bought has been importing all of the Love Live BDs because I wanted the low tier URs

I always wanted to buy some anime/manga but from what I hear it's usually a bitch to deal with.

Also the fact that guys on the internet make better releases than the official producers so

>>120249985
When you buy, you encourage the official editors to improve the quality of the products.

Bought some manga on my trip to Japan. Also have a few volumes of translated FMA.
>>
Yes, only manga.
Mostly because of the extras that is hard to find or for the better quality.
>>
>>120247707
its a bad idea to start collecting if you are a poor.
>>
>>120244117
All volumes of Dragonball.
>>
I have all volumes of 20th Century Boys and the two first volumes of Berserk.
I like to think that if I ever get a decent paying job, I'll book a trip to Japan and drop some cash to few authors' mailbox.

In the late 90's/early 2000's I used to regularly buy anime DVD's and VHS since their was no other way of acquiring other then going to chinatown to buy bootlegs with engrish subs. This was of course before torrents became a thing and I got a DSL line at home. I still occasionally buy a random Bluray if I can find it at a good price and is something I really really want to own

I only own the Read or Die and Read or Dream manga and DVDs.
>>
I have all of the collectors editions for madoka magica sitting in my room, and some cheaper DVDs I've bought from video stores and whatnot.

Speaking of DVDs, a couple weeks ago I went to a store that was closing down, and they had a copy of Golgo 13, I think, that was on sale there. Should I have bought it out of anything besides personal interest?
>>
Every time I go to Japan I buy as many volumes of 105 yen pre-owned manga as I can fit in my luggage before I go home
>>
I own a few collections, but I only buy gintama, hellsing and MPD psycho anymore (even then it's been over a year since I bought something).
The reason for buying manga in the past was that the scans and quality of translations were really, really bad. It was easier to buy a volume (though buying it online was a hassle too, the shipping costs were high).

I only buy things I truly think are worth it anymore. I recently got the novel of welcome to the N.H.K., I already had the DVDs and I will buy the manga too. If they ever release punpun I'll get that as well, even though I've already read it.
