    In Korea, mangas cost 2-4 bucks per volume.

    Fuck, I got my last 3 death notes for 12 bucks.

    I don't have a collection, seeing how all the stores in Canada sell useless shit (Old volumes of Naruto, bleach, first volume of Shana, old Negima ones, and a few others. ), or mangas I've already read quite a while ago.

    I'm more into light novels. I have the first 10 volumes of Kino no tabi, and the first 4 volumes of Gosick (regrets buying Gosick), while my brother has the whole bugipop phantom collection, which consists of more than 10 novels in the series.

    I don't buy manga but I read some. I read all of the Akira manga in my school library and it was awesome.

    Got it super duper good here.

    Don't need to buy manga, I have a friend that is single dude with a high paying job that lives at home, and thus can buy manga by the score.

    Start to finish, if you read one per day, I think you could read his collection in about 3 years [​IMG]

    He likely has more manga than most Japanese kids [​IMG]

    It's easier to count his collection by how many bankers box full of it that he has.

    He also has about the same volume of anime.

    It's not all good though. He's in his late 30's and I bet his tool can't even recall what a woman feels like.

    Oh well, we all have our priorities eh.

    I only read online. Manga is very rare in Portugal and if you find some, it's almost always in french.

    The closest thing I have to a manga are a couple of Pokemon comic books from when I was a kid. Haha they were cool when I was a kid.

    Wow... I have lots of manga! I should take a pic because you probably won't believe me, but currently I probably own around 250+ physical manga volumes and about that in scanlations as well...

    I really love the stuff.... I can't help it!

    I am limited to reading manga on my PC because it is a pain in the backside to get it in the UK and I am not willing to pay the price to import it.
