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.

Flat is justice!

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

--I wont type a post like a college report. If you don't read it just for that reason, you don't have to post why your hoity-toity ass refused to. I swear, so many people on this site are so full of themselves. A lot seem to think they always have an "intelligent and/or logical" point or show signs of a superiority complex. They never admit they're wrong. Maybe partially, but excuses abound! :\

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 ) :

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.
