I did once.
Bought the Azumanga Daioh omnibus, a few volumes of Excel Saga and Yotsuba&! and the DVD set of FLCL.
Never bought anything after that, I'm poor and I don't want people to know about my chinese media addiction.
Bought all of BLAME! for 50 cents a volume, a nearby library was getting rid of them.
you lucky mother fucker
I have a few Manga i bought.
>Death note 1
>Neon Genesis Evangelion 1-3
>Junji Ito's Uzumaki hardcover
>Trigun omnibus 1
>Knights of Sidonia 1
>Shinegki No kyojin 1-10 + volume 1 of no regrets (I regret that purchase ironically)
Looking to purchase some berserk, or maybe Gantz in the future.
I dread to think how painful Vinland Saga will be to read.
Once bought a volume of School Rumble in English, then many years later bought the third volume of the Love Live manga in Japan. Also bought volume 1 of Shana and TR.
I can wait
And book 6 comes out......2017!?
Poorfags and plebs can't understand how good it is to see you collection grow day by day.
This is not even half of all I have.
And how long have you been doing this?
Not very much, a year and some months. All the money I earn go directly to the comic book store.
I bought Eva for some reason and I got Gankutsuou and the Animatrix for free. More importantly though, I own the Hidamari manga, and I've bought a whole bunch of LNs. Got raws of Haruhi and the last two Oregairu volumes, too.
I bought a lot of anime in the past, but now I don't bother. It seems like the prices don't change but the quality of the packaging/content deteriorates over time. I don't have much manga but I plan to buy more of it, and I buy the odd light novel volume every now and again.
>a year and some months
>mfw nearly 8 years and haven't filled up a billy yet
I buy manga kind of regularly. There are a lot of newer releases of works that have never seen the light of day online (in scans or translations). On top of that I'll buy stuff that I already know I like just to have a physical copy of it.
I import manga I really like and buy some cheap copies from my local store.
I pay full price for gundam the origin because they are fantastic though, the water coloured pages are beautiful.
>Have you bought anime or manga?
Yeah, I have an assortment of manga and a few anime. Most of them are from the 2000's, back when I had really shitty Internet connection so even downloading and MP3 could take hours.
I still get the occasional manga, typically they are gifted to me though.
I always wanted to buy some anime/manga but from what I hear it's usually a bitch to deal with.
Also the fact that guys on the internet make better releases than the official producers so
I have all volumes of 20th Century Boys and the two first volumes of Berserk.
I like to think that if I ever get a decent paying job, I'll book a trip to Japan and drop some cash to few authors' mailbox.
In the late 90's/early 2000's I used to regularly buy anime DVD's and VHS since their was no other way of acquiring other then going to chinatown to buy bootlegs with engrish subs. This was of course before torrents became a thing and I got a DSL line at home. I still occasionally buy a random Bluray if I can find it at a good price and is something I really really want to own
I only own the Read or Die and Read or Dream manga and DVDs.
I have all of the collectors editions for madoka magica sitting in my room, and some cheaper DVDs I've bought from video stores and whatnot.
Speaking of DVDs, a couple weeks ago I went to a store that was closing down, and they had a copy of Golgo 13, I think, that was on sale there. Should I have bought it out of anything besides personal interest?
I own a few collections, but I only buy gintama, hellsing and MPD psycho anymore (even then it's been over a year since I bought something).
The reason for buying manga in the past was that the scans and quality of translations were really, really bad. It was easier to buy a volume (though buying it online was a hassle too, the shipping costs were high).
I only buy things I truly think are worth it anymore. I recently got the novel of welcome to the N.H.K., I already had the DVDs and I will buy the manga too. If they ever release punpun I'll get that as well, even though I've already read it.
I don't know Japanese and I've bought some untranslated manga because I liked it so much, like pic related.
