Do you also think Haruhi is garbage?
>>
>>139777597
yes
>>
>>139777550
There's a million reasons why that could be right, but I can only say that fan translations suck balls. At least the ones I've read. Does anyone know if LNs' prose is better in Japanese than in fan translations or does it also suck?
>>
maybe 90 or so?
I have 1 of yotsuba, 6 of pokemon special five of jojo and 5 of OPM
I've been thinking about buying some untranslated manga though in mitsudomoe/hajime no ippo, as I doubt those will ever get a western release

I find it ludicrous that in an anime and manga board you are saying this.
>>
>>139777814
99.9% of LNs are fucking garbage. If you like that shit, you don't belong here.
>>
$20-40. I forget how much the Azumanga Omnibuses cost, but I own the older print and the more recent one.

I've been considering buying all the Hidamari and Yotsuba but I probably never will because I'm lazy and I hate spending money on myself.

like 100 bucks had a subscription to shonen jump and bought a couple volumes of i think eva
>>
>>139777053
Around $415-$440 on Soul Eater and Soul Eater Not.

I spend about 30$, bought the latest non non biyori because I want to support atto-senei.

As for LN I bought the mardock scramble trilogy after seeing that the movies were decent

>>139777053
Hmmm, rough estimate of $8,000 over the course of 16 years.

Dayum. Post collection?

Got into manga about 4 months ago. Spent around $300 since then.
>>
>>139777053
$450ish, on random manga and LN, after reading pirated version or watching the anime.
>>
>>139778499
Nah. I can't be bothered. I already sold around 400 volumes of stuff I didn't really care about any longer. For some reason I also keep buying LNs despite them being so terrible. I've bought ~30 first volumes of English published light novel series. Only a few the second.Still have around 400 volumes of manga left though.

>>139778830
What LN series do you read?

>>139778499
Here's someone else's collection that lives in the US though.

Spice & Wolf - Because I enjoy it. Nice slice of life basically.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? - It amuses me.
The Rising of the Shield Hero - For the keks.
Monogatari - I like the anime.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes - I like the anime.
Durara - I like the anime.
Those are the ongoing ones anyway. I've finished a few.

>>139779169
Nice. I just started off No Game No Life. I'm really enjoying the story, despite how difficult it is to actually read the translation.
>>
>>139778992
This is insane. It amazes me how people can afford this much stuff.

I bought the first volume of NGNL. It was amusing, but not enough for me to buy the second volume. I usually buy the LNs because reading the fan translation versions is simply something I can withstand. Though, there are a good number of them available to pirate now, of the English releases.

welcome funimation to /a/, in answer to your marketing thread I'll answer with a legit answer.

when i was poor i pirated the shit out of everything I could get my hands on. Now that I'm well off, I have faithfully bought perhaps 70% of the translated anime I once pirated in thanks to the creators for their wonderful product. Most manga i've enjoyed has not been officially released stateside so the % of Manga i've read that i've actually purchased is quite low.

My biggest complaint is both the quality and timing of releases. Most manga/novels are only officially sold stateside YEARS after they were fan translated. often only the first volume being translated at that; which prevents me from supporting the authors like i should.
