I live a few minutes away from an actual Kinikunya book store in LA.

I can buy raw manga there about 3 or 4 days after it releases in Japan. YesAsia is for other stuffs.

Lucky. I live about an hour from Boston. Sasuga is now an online only story, so there's no store for me. no

god i'm really stuck!

anyone know a manga called Kiichi!!? i've been looking for the raws since forever, i used every site/system/irc i know of but the only place i could get that is yesasia.com or amazon.co.jp now the problem is: A few times before i ordered from yesasia and they tend to send other stuff intead of the indicated item! Or it takes a whole month for them to actually obtain the item. as for amazon.co.jp it's simply a rip off for me...i live in kuwait which means i need to first get the item to go to the U.S. using EMS shipping then get it from the U.S. to kuwait using Aramex shipping, that and i must tell you as i have beared it alot of time is a TOTAL RIP OFF i pay like %150 extra for shipping, the item itself is cheap. heck i'm even considering traveking to get my whole Raw wanted list....and it's all rare to find on the internet, i am not looking for them to scanlate, i want to add them to my humble collection...

Phew...um...help? cry

I've occasionally had good luck finding manga on eBay, from a Japanese seller in Japan, who then ships it to me in the US. I usually have to check for weeks/months before the ones I want come up for sale, but it's cheaper than buying from the other places I've seen suggested. Might be worth checking eBay, if you haven't already.

Really? Who's the seller? All the manga I've ever seen on eBay is jacked up to like $15, which is ridiculous.

I've bought from MKbooks2003 several times. Like I said, I do have to watch & wait for the manga I want, but I've gotten some good stuff at good prices. eyes

Try www.animaxis.com also. The shipping costs are through the roof, though...

Which is why I say Yesasia because if you buy enough at once (and I do) you get free shipping.

But since we're on the topic of raws, anyone know where I might be able to get this month's Ribon's magazine? I wanna scanlate Haruta Nana's new series Chocolate Cosmos and the oneshot Love Log, but I couldn't find it on eBay. Might have to ask my friend to see if it's in a shop for me...
