Ive seen them usually listed at $12 or more, I live in the US. Ive never bought them because there are usually so many volumes and all that money adds up.

6 for stuff like Naruto and up to ~12 for more fancy stuff. Sadly, the series I'd consider buying isn't available in my language.

FREE! I'm exclusively a pirate and leecher. The mangaka can eat it. laugh

Seriously, though, I have no clue. I wouldn't be caught dead buying something I could get for free online. Even if I wasn't woefully poor (because all my extra money goes to weed to keep me from killing co-workers, friends, schoolchildren waiting for the bus, etc.), I wouldn't buy it. Even if I was a mangaka who had a child who was a mangaka who desperately needed sales for his family to survive, I wouldn't buy it. I don't care what people think, but it's a waste of $$ IMO if you can get it for free. eyes If the series get's axed or something, well, fuck it. I'll find something else to do with my time. roll eyes

Quote from Shibiusa
Oh, you guys are luckier than us! Our FNACs are terrible, Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and not much else ._.
And the stores in events don't even bring manga to sell... Only other merchandise... Even if they did, selling each volume for 10 wouldn't work at all. It's sad.

Oh, I knew Book Depository, bu ...


They don't sell manga at the events? At the Saló del Manga you can find any series you want. There is this stall I always go to that has manga for just 4 euros during one day the con lasts.

A shounen jump or shoujo beat volume will cost about £7 now, but in my local comic shop they have been on 3 for 2 for a long time. Something like Berserk however will cost about £10 per volume but not be on special offer.

Everything has some value to it. Even if I don't like the manga you read I realise it gives you joy so I see how it has value. Maybe with patience I can get into a series I couldn't before.

In my country , the cost of the manga fluctuate between 16.000 vnd and 20.000 vnd(about 0.759201$ to 0.949001) per volume with tankoubon form (normal) . And with kanzenban form (wide) , it's about 50.000vnd (2.37250 $) And mangas in my country looks like this ( tankoubon ) :

http://vnsharing.net/forum/showthread.php?t=479015

But most of manga collector in my country buy manga in our country and also oder original Japanese manga or English manga for collection .

And , it's quiet difficult for a manga series is released in our country , it depends on the genre ,the art , the plot whether that manga series contain mature , violent plot or not . For example , we don't have death note,to love ru (all of ecchi manga roll eyes ) ; liar game ;shingeki no kyojin.....etc.....

Under 10 for a standard tankobon, up to 25 for more deluxe volumes and omnibuses.

Ireland, by the way.

Usually costs around ₩4500 (~4.09).
But I mostly just go to manhwabang (translation: comic room) where you can read all the manga there for ₩500~₩1000 ($0.45~$0.91) an hour or borrow each volume for ₩300~₩500 ($0.27~$0.45). They usually have all the manga I'm finding and they update with new volumes really quickly.

Oh, Madoka has just arrived to Spain recently too, and it's very popular.

I see you don't yet know the pleasure of having a great manga collection at your own home. Plus the quality in the manga volumes is way better than what you can read on the internet.
