    So i wanted to start a collection. A Manga collection. Of course il be buying them at Barnes & Nobles. What kind of manga is worth buying? And that i can enjoy?
    Please do not include:
    Death Note(Watching it online. And i love it like that. I went to the library to read a volume and it wasn't that exciting. But Case Closed was nice.... Im thinking of Case Closed for my Manga Collection. Any recommened Manga Series?

    Doesn't exist.

    At least not here in the US, where they scalp you for 10 dollars a book. Its ridiculous.

    Berserk... Although I don't know if they censored/edited it in the Dark Horse version. If they did, then fuck that.

    A classic that I would to buy once I have a decent paying job is Akira. First manga I ever read and damn it blew my mind. However, each volume is about half a dictionary and costs around 40-50 bucks. Worth it though.

    Case Closed, Rurouni Kenshin, and D.Gray-Man are three series I've been collecting lately. I'm enjoying them greatly.

    If you're going to buy manga at Barnes&Nobles, be sure to get the membership card!!!
    It gets you 10% off all items in the store, 20% off hard cover, and 40% off best sellers.
    That means for every 10 Manga books you buy, you get 1 free. o_o
    After buying 20 Manga books, it pays for itself. I buy books other than Manga as well, so it's a pretty good deal for me.

    I have a strange obsession with CLAMP.
    I found the anime to be better than the manga series though.
    The animated version include MOAR cards and MOAR characters.
    And it doesn't have as much lesbianism or teacher x student relationships.
    I think.
    Crap. I'm gonna have to read/watch them over again...

    What I wanted to say was that you should read Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.
    It's a spinoff featuring the same characters in a completely different universe.

    CLAMP is indeed awesome. And yeah, I enjoyed the anime more than the manga as well. I can't believe I forgot Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles...
