When I was younger I was a huge Manga fan and got a Swedish Manga Magazine called "MangaMania", but the cost is what essentially made me stop reading. :( But I do have almost (missing 2 I think) all the Love Hina books, they were my favorite! Still think it's hilarious :lol:

There is a great anime/manga/japanese things bookstore where I live called the Science Fiction Book Store, they have the manga in both Swedish, English and Japanese! :D Would love to start reading again but it's still a question of money, like you said one book is around $10 (£6-7), way too expensive! ^_^ Could buy a small series but never anything like One Piece (which my brother reads).

Any suggestions? Apart from the Vampire ones Jade recommended. :)

I agree Hannah they are expensive but when I think how hard the mangka worked on it I forget about the price and buy it.
What you like? Comedy? Romance?

I don't find it too expensive. I find it alright. If it was £10 a book then it'd be expensive.

But I try to go once a month or so, or else my money will vanish in no time.

I go once a week and buy 6. So it's about... 24 A MONTH. Works out 4 more than you, :P. But seriously, I don't find it too bad. I mean It's just a case of being able to save it.

I agree, it's not bad. It's depend on what they have on sale. Sometimes it doesn't interest me.

Bringing this back! What Manga are you guys currently reading? I need some new suggestions. I've heard a lot of great anime starting from October, but nothing about Manga. :/

And any thought on Yuri? I tried reading some Yaoi back then but completely lost my interest.

Recently I have been reading a bunch of stuff online. I love how people scan the books and you can just read it. There are no good places to buy manga near me. I just read whatever is most popular on the site usually. I'm just looking for something to read. Don't care if it's good or not lol.

I've read quite a few and the best so far has easily been Berserk. It's pretty extreme so I wouldn't recommend it to everybody, but if you're tough and love fantastic storytelling then do check it out.

I'm a bit behind with my manga. Due to me spending all my money on a phone and a digital camera. I have about 6 volume's to buy.

I recently started reading 6 new manga which I'm loving so far! "Spiral - Suiri no kizuna" which is my fave so far, "Monster", "Soil", "Doubt", "Mononoke" and "Left hand of God right hand of the devil". I recommend them if you're into mystery/detective.

I also finished "Mantis woman". It's 6 short horror stories based on Japanese urban legends. Loved it.
