Just started collecting manga. Post your collections
Not my entire collection. I have about twice as much, but I wanna get rid of a lot I don't care for anymore.
I do have some physical books, just not with me.
i'ts going to take like 7 years for one piece to be completely published in my country im glad im starting to collect it now
Good start, anon.
Ahhh I feel your pain. Also had to slim my collection down just recently. After moving, and did an official count of my collection and somehow had over 1000 volumes. Decided to sell off/donate a bunch.
While I don't really care for the cover VIZ used, I'm eternally grateful this is now in English. Plus, the larger trim size and paper quality is a bonus.
Yeah, I imagine the original Punpun covers are bit too minimalist to catch people's eye.
I've heard Eden goes downhill after volume 8 so I'm not too inclined to read the rest. Sidenote: Ajin's manga art reminds me a lot of Eden.
tfw Dark Horse just keeps not releasing Kekkai Sensen 8 and Drifters 4
Pretty much. They wouldn't garner nearly as much attention as the ones they're using now.
Not so much that it goes downhill (although it does), but more that Dark Horse essentially can't finish the series because the sales are so shit and the JP publisher won't allow them to release anymore.
>They're coming soon
I keep waiting, and I keep bugging them and bugging people to bug them at cons to remind them to get on this shit already. BBB is done in Japan, and the anime was popular here, which led the sales of the manga to jump dramatically. I don't get it. Sasuga Dark Horse.
You will never be this good of a person. You will always repost other peoples photos.
You will forever be shit
Go no room man, just sold 20th Century Boys and some Dragon Ball.
Mostly a /co/ reader so stuff is all mixed up. Top shelf stuff in that super blurry image is Yoshihiro Tatsumi releases by D+Q and Gundam Origin.
Did anyone fill out that survey Vertical put out today?
and stuff in a reading pile.
I never know what to put on their surveys since everything I would like for them to do not fit their criteria.
That said I did put down Flying Witch this time around since I would like to own it plus it's entirely possible since the manga is published by Kodansha in Japan
I'm not even sure what they can and can't license from anymore so I ended up suggesting two enterbrain titles that might end up getting cockblocked because YenPress and a Gundam title.
>Did anyone fill out that survey Vertical put out today?
Yup. Put Dungeon Meshi, Tomo-chan and Danshi Koukousei on there.
More or less everything not from Shueisha, Shogakukan, and Gentosha (since Tokyopop somehow has exclusive rights to deal their licensing out).
Akita Shoten is no longer off the table, though I imagine they still can't get anything from SoftBank Creative/Flex Comics.
I put Meshi too. Hopefully it pulls a lot of votes. Suggested Ran because I just want to see it in english and Gundam Otaku Girl.
I'm deliberately choosing shit that have either no scanlations or dropped projects.
Fuck TP. Wish they'll just die for good. Wish Vertical will somehow get their stuff since Vertical actually give a shit about fans.
why collect something that you can get for free on the internet? having a physical copy only means it will deteriorate over time and you will constantly struggle to maintain its quality.
Reading an actual book is much much better experience than doing it digitally for a lot of people. Books can last an extremely long time and are cheap to buy, especially on the second hand market.
Entitled poorfag that glorifies piracy spotted. Reading a hardcopy is so much more satisfying. And many manga have nice production values and are a pleasure to hold and look at. I love pulling my favorite manga off my shelf and sitting down on my couch and relaxing while reading it. Much more efficient and comfortable than reading on a screen.
Oh Ran, good one. Didn't think of that at the time.
Eh, it's not like Gentosha has a whole lot going on in their catalog. Maybe a few decent series, but compared to even most other small pubs, they're pretty mediocre.
It's a hobby, anon. Some people like having the physical collection, or maybe they're reading it for the first time, or maybe they feel like supporting the creators? It differs for most people, I'm sure, but it's not exactly a process that should sound so elusive and mysterious to anyone.
No. Most manga tankoubon are 11.2 x 17.4 cm, and eromanga typically are printed at A5 (14.8 x 21 cm). The larger trim-size, plus a longer page count (~300 pages) and slightly better paper quality puts eromanga at around double the cost of your average manga.
>is much less eye-tiring than a computer screen
So much this. I have a tablet that I take to work with me at night, and I just read manga from it digitally. By the time i get home my eyes fill quite strained. But when reading in my free time around the house I read from my physical collection, and it's less straining.
