    Just idle curiosity I guess. I myself have spent about 1400 euros on my collection, so I think I'm at the lower end of the scale.

    Because lol @ anyone who buys anime and manga. The prices are outrageous and most of the time the DVD subs blow. Also, I'm not really interested in waiting 1-2 years to watch a new show.
    But that's not to say I haven't watched/read quite a bit, in fact I'd challenge anyone to say they've seen more than I have [​IMG]

    Too much on manga.

    I would say more than 3000 €
    I didn't count one by one, some of them are 7€ other are 15€, I round the price in between.
    I don't read scantrad, I don't like reading book on a computer screen, I like the paper feeling.

    Almost nothing on anime, I got disappointed on the first one I bought because of the subtitles (Official are so baddly done compared to fansub).

    A decent amount of US dollars, around $700 over the course of ~8 years. I only buy what I want, some of it I got as gifts, and I hardly buy anything that I don't have coupon or is on sale. Best place to buy anime/manga is at the cons, especially on the last day since they're trying to clear out their inventories.

    But nowadays, I'm not really buying much (unless it's Rockman related XD )

    Very little. I don't pointlessly spend my money on things that don't truly deserve it.

    I've bought the Clannad complete collection, and preordered the After Story complete collection. My only anime purchases.

    i'd never buy manga, since I hate it.

    Very little. Other than my VHS tapes of Pokemon and Dragon Ball/Z, I either download my anime/watch it on the internet. As for manga, I get them from my local library.

    $2100 on anime

    I prefer to read manga online however I do own all volumes of Sister Princess, K-ON, and I have 6 vols of Baby Princess (the successor to Sister Princess) coming. No estimate, I lost track.

    Fact of the matter is- included DVD subs are terrible, many times with grammatical errors.
    Fansubs are very well done.

    All I ever purchased was Baccano! Complete collection, Eva 1.11 Blu-ray, 3 death note mangas. 70 bucks.


    Will be buying TTGL complete collection, both GL movies, and a few other shows down the line though. Gotta get more of those Blu-ray stuff.

    I don't read manga. The most manga I read is some that my friend keeps trying to lend me, and occasionally, it's available in the library, but even that I don't read much.

    I don't really watch that many rare anime's, just more popular ones most of the time. So I just turn to dubbed ones. I don't need Jap w/ subs to watch Detective Conan and Jigoku Shoujo (which is the are the two animes I tend to follow, even though the second is already done and I just watch reruns which show very often). If there IS an anime that I like which I can't see on TV (KissXSis, Shadow Star, Black Jack, Rec), I turn to, of course, the internet.
