Me? Never really bought mangas... Too damn expensive... How 'bout you guys? Just wondering

Edit!
My dad buys it for me. He's in the US right now. I currently have Death Note vol.6-10 and Pixie Pop: Gokkun Pucho vol.1-2. I haven't seen Death Note yet (the anime). And Pixie Pop is a recent manga so it still doesn't have an anime version (i think)...

Another Edit!
I recently bought a manga on sale. I already saw its anime but I still bought it. I just cant resist! XD The title's Samurai Deeper Kyo. :)

I try to buy mangas everytime I can afford them. For now I have bought all mangas selled in Poland, and I stardted to buy from the US... now THAT'S expensive. I really like reading manga and prefers books to downloaded chapters... So I took up a job (tutor) just to afford to buy 4-5 books per month. ^_^'

Oh, yes. I really love to read original Japanese mangas and I buy it a lot on regular basis. When you get to my level of addiction it truely is very expensive. Lately, I started to order big chunk of my mangas from Amazon Japan and my last order set me back about $300.

Yes, even thought I have already seen the anime I still want to read the manga. Cuz' mangas are more detailed then the anime. But here they sell manga with a crazy prize so it is a bit hard.

Yes. I think it's like "the book is better than the film".
But mangas are so damn expensive >_<'

Cancel

yes i do, most of the time the manga has a different story than the anime and sometime just more detailed, and so they are expensive i have about ..... (goes to count)... 111 books thats about +$1108.89 X-P.

i'll download a manga if i can find it. I'm too lazy to read most of the time, though and they are too expensive to buy.

Yes. =^.^= I buy the manga and watch the anime. The most I've spent on buying manga would be about around $750 I think... The least I've spent on manga would be about $650. And I've been shopping for mangas about 5 times only in this year. So yeah. =^.^= But this most I've spent on anime (I buy the box sets) is about maybe $100?

For me if I read the manga I almost always go buy the show. Even though there are differences I still liking watching the show and comparing to the book. But sometimes I do the reverse also. When I started One Piece I had to buy the mangas and they have broke me now.

Yeah there are some series that the anime is shortened, in that cases i always watch the manga.

at my country it will cost $1.5-$2.5 ( Rp.11.000,- ~ Rp. 22.000,-)
for a single book so it will not kill me even the salary at here low.

But sometimes the manga series a little bit too late from another country. (but all the book in Indonesian Languange so don't expect to much)

I buy the manga first and then I watch the anime,it is true that the manga iits more detailed.I have seen American versions of manga titles like tenjou tenge or another manga,tand hat they cut many scences,like in the anime they do ,I know that the companies want kids to buy to ,but it is always bad to do that dont u think?
I have been living in mexico and they dont touch anything in the manga ,they only translate it of course,they keep the original manga as how it has been published in japan,and its cool cuz u know every thing that happens in the story.And for ex in the american version of tenjou tenge they change many dialogues,they dont translate it well,for example they change many sexual and violent comments,I mean the story has to be as it is ,or not--?And the mexican versions of manga are pretty cool thought ,even the anime stays how it is.Whtdo u think?

Yup =p
If the anime's really good I end up buying the manga >__<
I download them and if I like it I go to the nearest Manga store lol.
Boy, does manga make my wallet bleed =x

If the anime's really good then I buy the manga. Most buy the manga to know the actual story since animes sometimes leaves scenes out.
