I collected what I could in the early 00's but stopped because I had a lot of shit mangas at hand suddenly. I have some under my bed too. They are too expensive to throw away but take up needless space. Naruto was the breaking point. Chobits is my biggest regret.
If it is in English it's a comic, regardless of origin. You can't remove the language and still call it Japanese nor can you the same for Korean comics.
Something EOPs don't like to accept.
Why? Get a tablet and read it like a normal person,for free
>Get a tablet and read it like a normal person,for free
more like poorfags amirite?
>If it is in English it's a comic, regardless of origin
>regardless of origin
>Living in a country where products like electronics are cheap
>Call someone else an poor fag
Also production cost is a fraction of the tablets price.
just got this. Someone explain why the later volumes are grossly overpriced?
Wanna know where I can get them for less than $20?
It's good stuff btw. Everyone should own atleast one Lupin manga or they're probably not real manga fans
Does anyone remember the name of this manga where a guy who lives in a village suddenly got attacked by a bunch of vampires, and he sets out on a quest to kill all vampires together with a blonde girl?
R8 my minor collection Senpai
>wearing shoes indoors
Get the fuck out you fucking primitive gorilla.
Not bad except for Toriko.
France is the first manga consumer right behind Japan. So we have tons of translated things.
It's decent some joke are lost in the translation but that to be expected since it's kinda hard to translate Nisio playword in anything other than Jap so I give them credit for at least trying.
Such a shame that the manga don't sell here but I'm not surprised it's kinda niche.
Hnnng. So many things I want to buy too. But I already have series to finish before.
>Spice & Wolf
>Knights of Sidonia
>A Silent Voice
Manga is a ruin.
>You must be a weeb to have a basic level of hygiene and not wanting dirt in your whole home
My most recent purchase.
I'll try buying the other volumes after I finish my finals.
I thought about it, but the quality worries me. I was a kid who read them a lot and always carried a few with me so the side of the pages are yellow and some of the covers cracked and I can't sell some of the series as a set because some of the volumes are worn down completely. But if I set the price to $1 or $1.50 and add a warning could it work? They don't sell them anymore in my country so someone might just need a few to complete their own collection. Is that fair then?
First couple volume translations of index are literally garbage since and JS06 never even did them either.
That's still better than how Gintama's doing in every country except Japan itself. Publisher in Germany can't even say how many years they'll continue, cause it's doing so badly.
I don't see why not. As long as you give fair warning, and provide a picture or two, I don't see why not.
You can also see about donating some of them to a library. A lot of public libraries have small comic sections, and might be looking to expand them a bit.
Personally, I just threw most of it out. Chobits was the first in the bin, in fact. The only manga that I have in print is the complete Rosario Vampire boxset, most of the Jing: King of bandit volumes (I still regret losing those) and the old Azumanga Dioh collection.
Jesus, what is with those hairy hands.
Like I didn't even know you could even get hair on your hands, that's disgusting.
>You can also see about donating some of them to a library.
Thank you. I forgot about those. That sits better with me. I'll ask if they can use them. If not it will be the neighborhood youth center.
keeping One Piece for now until complete
>Personally, I just threw most of it out.
That's great. It's good to have the capability to throw out stuff one doesn't enjoy having around anymore.
Wearing shoes indoors isn't normal in the US you fucking europoor. Enjoy getting raped by mudslimes.
>inb4 "but im not european!!
then you live in some third world country and no one gives a fuck about you.
>2 poor and cheap for shelves
Nigger, first price shelves are like the price of 2-4mangas function of the size.
Or just nail few planks together.
Agreed, it really fits the shift in tones
I'm sorry in advance.
I like you. I would sit around reading your manga taking up space in your house.
In case you didnt know they have released 7 of Toradora now. That shits taking forever to come out.
Unfortunately, everything is stored in boxes in an attic now
Counting all of my idya, I had around 12-15 boxes. I had to store everything in my grandmother's attic (including a fucking DDR metal platform) when I moved out of country
>not being a filthy mongoloid
>he must be a weeb!
Drown in your own dirt and die.
>calling people weebs on 4chan
>Buy couple volumes of a manga
>Get to impatient to order more volumes so I go binge read the scans
>Get caught up to the scans and now don't feel like buying volumes
Happen to anyone else?
I don't know man, reading a few chapters to see if it's alright is cool but if i read the whole series already through scans then buying it would feel pointless to me and would just be a collection.
>local bookstore suddenly have 10% discount on all mangoes for a whole month
>sweet, they got that deaf girl mango, gotta buy em after payday
>all of em are out of stock
A very good start for my mango collection.
They're pretty short, so they aren't terribly deep. But there's a lot of them.
TDS and Oriko hold some popularity as direct extensions to the main story, while Kazumi tries to get a new angle with new girls.
Homura Tamura is pure comedy.
I've been out of shelf space for a while. I've been moving books to the top of the bookshelf to make more room.
It's a mixed bag.
Madoka Magica - Good short retelling. dont read before watching anime.
Madoka Magica a different story - probably my fave.
Oriko - Good but short.
Kazumi - Still havent read this fully. Keep giving up.
>not having read mangas or watched animes in like 10-15 years
>trying to reconnect
>walk in store
>look at manga section
>I don't know any of these things
I want to just walk in and buy a manga, but I can't because I don't know any of this shit, so I just end up watching Ranma 1/2 at home over the internet
This is all I have right now, sorry
According to manga-news, manga+animu combined would be around 10k€. It's not really accurate though, I didn't update this list for a long time.
It's also using MSRP, which I rarely paid(bought a lot of stuff second-hand, especially long series, DVD were almost always bought during sales), so I really paid less than this.
And I don't know how much I may have sunk into vidya, got hundreds of games, and somewhere around 40 games systems at most. I sold for ~1500€ of stuff last year, and it's still taking a lot of place.
I can't fix the rotated images, I'm retarded.
I only buy manga made for little girls such as myself.
Well IIRC it's a short history of manga in Japan and France, and a listing of every series released in French as of 2005.
Look up the second row, Beatiful Dreamer is using the French name. The manga used both.
Brand new at launch IIRC. I don't even remember unwrapping the DVDs.
Downloading stuff is way more faster and simpler than watching the DVD
And that's all. Sorry for the images, I don't know what the fuck is wrong with my phone camera. I rotate the images before posting them.
First series I bought was Chobits, so around 2004-2005 I guess ? I started reading and watching way earlier but it was the first time I actually bought something. I then bought older stuff, either second-hand or during promotions (like J'ai Lu Jojo's when they were expensive as fuck at 2€/piece in my local shop)
I think I stopped buying stuff around 4-5 years ago.
Damn, I went to Fnac and I couldn't find it. Only found these Bride Stories >>136203626
I have yet to fill the Medaka box they offered with the first volume, so I just used it to stock Haruhi light-novels
We've got similar tastes, I like that.
Maybe your phone is rotated, anon?
my small collection. been trying to buy more manga and anime lately because muh industry. also theres some /co/ in there too. ignore that.
whats wrong with reading manga or watching movies or just browing 4chan comfy in your bed instead of sitting infront of a computer? You obviously don't know the pleasure of owning a good tablet.
I have two seperate collections but heres the actually good ones
>la malinconia di Haruhi Suzumiya
I need to hide my powerlevel so I read only digital editions
Your argument is that buying manga is shit and reading it on a tablet is better, and suddenly the next thing is that people that spent thousands of euros on manga are too poor for a, like you said, cheap tablet.
I hope none of you people actually buy localized shit.
Emma novels come with the anime in the Limited Edition Box. I found the box in the Salón del Manga in Barcelona. The Emma manga is hard to find nowadays. I found the Shirley manga in Barcelona too.
Also, it happened to me too. When I bought the first Medaka volume, I filled the spaces with Haruhi novels.
About the phone, I dont know. I will try again later.
>nail a few planks together
I never said that at all. Reading physical and digital material both have their own advantages and disadvantages and I enjoy both. Mocking someone because they own a tablet these days sounds like someone who couldn't afford it even if they wanted one.
I would like to return this tobacconist, it is scratched.
Reading manga on tablet is just too good. It's like I have a gigantic manga library online and I can pick whatever I want. I used to buy manga but I stopped it because in the end it's too expansive and once I have finished a volume I don't ever touch it so it's a waste of area too. Buying mango is a waste of money and place.
Thanks, but there are plenty of little girl threads on /a/ as well.
I can clearly affort if and mock everyone that ones one. You can do everything with your phone that a tablet can do.
And if you are concerned about muh screensize, why stop with a tablet? Why not a laptop, a 50" touchscreen mounted over your bed?
If you want a tablet, get a graphic tablet that is actually usefull.
I want to buy it too, but it doesn't have a release here, so it's either english or japanese import. Later one would be a good oppurtunity for practice. Maybe even too good.
Does anyone know if tankouban releases of jump manga have furigana too?
Aside from the touchscreen, I already own all those and more. It's more convenient to read manga on my tablet than it is my phone, and read books on my kindle than my tablet. Just because you're okay with reading manga on a tiny screen or sitting in bed with a laptop doesn't make reading manga on a tablet wrong.
>I don't care about the cosplay shit, I buy only manga. 28-29 of november.
I think you were trying to say something, but unfortunately I couldn't get it. Could you repeat that again in a different way?
Sorry, my shitty english.
I only go to the Salón because of the manga. I don't care about the cosplays, games or the bonsais. There are "mini-shops" where they have used manga at a good price.
The Salón del Manga starts in 28-29 of november and it's 4 days long.
> Haki tatoos for no reason
> dark rounded eyes
how is this shit not edgy lol. b-but it's goofy because it looks stupid i-it's not edgy. Yay go fuck yourself and enjoy the taste of Oda's cock.
But there are also many manly threads, Will you be ok, anon-chan?
Sorry too, I thought it was a different anon, so I kind of replied in a rude way. (I tried looking for the 28th-29th of November in Madrid and couldn't find anything)
Unfortunately, Expomanga in Madrid takes place in May, and I've finals during the whole month. There's also a Japan Weekend in February, but as you've said, it looks like there'll only be a lot of cosplay, so I doubt I'll go.
>Buying battle shounen.
They are trash and take up way too much space. Just read the scans you retards.
I'll be safe. Thanks for looking out for me, onii-chan.
How does buying manga make you either of those things?
My collection. I wonder if anyone can notice a general theme.
Nice shojo sempai.
Never apologize for Kenshin senpai.
I've been meaning to pick up the Gundam manga but because it's hard cover it's stupid expensive. Zeon for live though.
How is Uzumaki?
Bull shit. Chobits could be done in one or two volumes. There was nothing in that story that warranted eight volumes. None of the plot points, none of the character development none of the pretentiousness. Nothing.
What does Freezing, Negima, Witchcraft Works, Air Ore, Black Lagoon all have in common......
No need to say sorry. And yes, I know about the Expomanga and the Japan Weekend, but never went.
Good luck with the exams, senpai.
A friend of mine has a regional distribution site for all smoking related shit. He found these when opening a box of 5k lighters (no idea how these 2 got mixed in) and he passed them to me
Only fan service I'm in is tall women with short men.
Sorry to disappoint you familigia.
Wait, how the hell can that screenshot be from Seitokai Yakuindomo. Isn't that the captain from Treasure Island wearing a sailor uniform and making a thumbs up (which is really out of character)?
That's George, kohai.
B-but we can't, anon-kun! We live in differrent places...
One of the editors mentioned that in an early volume of Ranma 1/2. I was 10 or 12 and found it too troublesome because then I would have to take them out of the bag every time and in between reading volumes. If I had known manga would be available on the internet I might have.
>Chobits is good motherfuker
Even Princess Ai is better than Chobits.
I don't have nice shelves so here's just what's on my desk at the moment.
Sure, if you read like 10 series over and over again. Same shit with books.
Physical books/manga/anime/movies are a waste of space. I rewatch maybe 1-2 shows a year, and manga I only reread if I haven't read it for years and need to catch up on the current translations.
But there is so much out there, rereading is a waste of time.
>But there is so much out there, rereading is a waste of time.
And 99% of it is shit. I'd rather reread the same 3 or 4 series that I like that waste my time with a shitload of garbage. Quality of quantity.
Anon, do you have a tall girl fetish or something?
>I'd rather reread the same 3 or 4 series that I like that waste my time with a shitload of garbage. Quality of quantity.
That's the dumbest thing I've read in a long time, thanks.
French thread? French thread!
Where is Cloé Lemaaaaiiiire when we need her?
There's plenty of shit too.
But what matters is the volume of sales and domestic productions that aren't only capeshit. This naturalises the view on manga that isn't action or melodrama.
Alors que je m'enfonçais goulûment dans son anus malpropre, une onomatopée inopinée me surprit. "Glop", entend-ire. Telle une œuvre céliniènne, l'équivalent de deux printemps de fluides viriles dégringole subitement dans sa cavité anale. L’afflux irrémédiable de ce fluide triviale était sans équivoque. Lubrifiant jusqu'à l'os la joueur émérite, personne ne pouvait plus l'arrêter dans sa course folle.
I'm actually quite broke right now, I'm preparing to move to NZ, so I have a lot of stuff to pay for (like visa, paperwork and parts for my car). A friend of mine gave it to for free back in HS. I also got an Amiga 1200 and a Commodore 128 from another friend.
I bought most of this stuff while I was working night shifts in interim, so I had quite a huge pay for a non-skilled worker.
I blew everything into manga, vidya, a trip to Japan and a Miata
>had a whole steel closet filled with manga
>this thread made me nostalgic for them
>remeber i put the closet over in the cabin when i moved
>there was a leak in the cabin
>all i could see was green moss
There were manga for at least 2,5K in there
Nice. I wish I had more space and bigger shelves. Having things separated feels wrong.
I was about to buy the Witch craft Works manga until I read the reviews that said they have the poor physical quality of archie books, that if you even touch the page you will smear the ink, but those look fine.
I also have Gunsmith cats revised 1-3 in a box, been looking for years but still haven't found 4 at a sane price.
I like your style.
Admit it, even Europoor has better manga publication than the US itself. Murica fags are doomed to produce cancerous anime fags with shit taste while the average Europoor has better quality through manga.
The line-up can't be that different. I know France gets more shit than everyone else, but no idea about other countries. Actually surprised me to see Italy and Spain to have Medaka Box too.
/lit/ fag here, just started a manga collection myself. Not sure what to get next, though I was considering Evangelion, FLCL, and KLK.
inb4 angry haters.
1/4 don't have big shelves in my room, so everything's separated.
2/4 having some one piece volumes of key moments, cause it's too blue and dull
this, I gave up collecting Eng volume because it's taking forever to catch up. Since I'm learning moon right now, so I started on the JP volumes instead. for US fags just go to to Bookoff if you can find any near you, they sell the JP volumes really cheap, and sometime the sales for the collection set is quite worthy.
I have LoGH character index by the way.
Railgun got my attention because of the science aspects to it (obviously a lot of things in it are unscientific, but that is science fiction for you).
Yotsuba I picked up for language acquisition because it is written in simple Japanese and the kanji is spelled out.
>Big bang theory
>Plethora of shonen shit
Sure is pleb up in here
I thought about learning french and buying french manga, since they have just about everything I want. This is mostly due to the fact that I do much better with a teacher than self learning and there are no Japanese classes around me.
I think Moon has the upper advantage for self-learning due to the abundant internet resources comparing to French. Or maybe it's just because native English speaker flow more fluid to French while Moon is entirely a different concept.
Got one bl manga as a birth day present and won another at a con twice. First one can be seen here >>136219044
But the later one is hidden behind everything else, because it's so shitty.
This dude knows where its at honestly. I have a couple of autistic friends who always say "Why the fuck are you buying books? Just read them online you faggot." And also "Books are gay. Who reads." When yes I do read Manga online but I also gotta buy them when they come out in the US.
Well, I won my at vidya contests. No idea who thinks shitty bl is a great prize for someone who wins at vidya.
>Drafts at the end of the volume look better than the clean shit in the story.
But he's right tho, France is years ahead in terms of manga publishing, for example Jojoniums are relatively new in the US, while most parts have already been published in France, with SBR volume 19 coming out this February.
>It is simply a question of Mexicans and if you make it worth my while I will very quickly
How do you even write this and expect anyone to understand it. Good for a laugh though.
I've even got one printed upside down. I noticed it and had to buy it. Not sure why.
any of you mangafags come across stuff like this?
Hohoo, I think I've spotted you frog anon, who sent me my last /ss/.
>Six paintings of seals are at least 42,000 years old
It's okay, mate. I don't plan on living longer than 42,000 years.
Eng Mango first.
Gotta catch up with Railgun, S&W, CCS & Vinland Saga.
Catching up with My lil'Monster and Barakamon.
Also I hate 'Murica's omnibus editions.
