(incl. Anime News Nina!, ANNtv, ANNCast, Answerman, Astro Toy, Brain Diving, Buried Treasure, Chicks On Anime, Crashing Japan, The Dub Track, The Edit List, Epic Threads, From The Gallery, Hai Fidelity, House of 1000 Manga, Ima Kore Ga Hoshiin Da, Old School, Pile of Shame, RIGHT TURN ONLY!!, Shelf Life, Sound Decision, Sub Culture, Super Plastic, Tales Of The Industry, Tankobon Tower, The Click, The Gallery, The List, The Mike Toole Show, The Set List, The Stream, The X Button, Vice Luna)A used book store near my house sells older manga or manga that are in good but not great condition (usually shojo manga) very cheaply 3 manga for 100 yen (a little less than a dollar). It’s great for buying manga that you want to try out but you don’t necessarily want to keep. Once I read these manga, I usually sell them back to the store. But they can have some pretty good manga there, depending on your timing. I’ve seen KareKano, HanaKimi, Clamp’s works, DNAngel, Angel Sanctuary, BASARA, MARS, POWER!(Girl Got Game) and many others in this 3 for 100 yen section If your timing is very good, you can sometimes get a whole series there.Anyway, moving right along there are afew factors as to why manga is cheaper in Japan versus North America. To begin with Japan has more of a market for manga than Western Markets. Also Japanese manga tends to be printed on lower quality than you would normally see used for any reading cheap jerseys materials in say the US. Also, North American companies need to pay both license fees as well as royalties so they get less money from the sale of the books. Finely you need to factor in that books over all have been going up in prices here in the US (the older books that I have on my book case have about $3.50 for a price tag and now I usually pay about $6.50 at the bookstore for a paperback) and you can see that its not too surprising that they cost more here.But they seem to do the gift art in Japan alot. In Kosuke Fugishima’s (the guy who does A!MG) Your Under Arrest! artbook, they had some gift art by fellow Afternoon (the magazine that his works are in) artists. I haven’t seen all of them, but the ones were amazing, as they were done by one of the best artists in manga today. An A!MG one is coming out soon, and hopefully will feature some more fanart. I would love to see what Tsutomu Nihei (Blame) http://www.cheapjerseys11.com/ would do for something like that, as well as Tsutomu Takahashi and Hiroaki Samura (who did the YUA! fanart that I mentioned).
