where do you europeans buy your manga?
 
where do you people always get your manga? I always buy them at a online shop (archonia.com) because the people at my local comic store are a bunch of swindlers, they charge for one manga around 30$... they always have lame excuses, expensive shipping costs, import taxes blablabla :mad:

Archonia is being gay with jap manga.. I stick to sasugabooks for that, but archonia is great for everything else.

ElvenPath 2003-12-28 13:41

I usually get them in a japanimation shop or at the local book shop.

Have you had a look at the "Where do I buy"... sticky in the DVD & Licensed forum.

Megane listed a number of suggestions as to where you can order on-line for anime goods. In the U.K. I find amazon.co.uk a good source for anime, but that doesn't help you in the Netherlands. Seems you already know about archonia.com.

Tritium 2003-12-28 18:20

I went to amazon.co.uk but the shipping costs are really expensive there for me :(

Have you looked at http://www.omochabox.com/s/home?i=0,1
i don't know how it comparet to the others but i thought if there is the smallest chance it might help then why not post it.

A very good shop in London (and as for directions, it's just opposite the British Museum :) ), it's small but IMO it's what a comic shop should be like (don't forget there's a downstairs section as well).

While it seems cheaper than the nearby large Forbidden Planet, it's still expensive compared to the suggested on-line shops like amazon :(

But it's a bit far to travel from the Netherlands (from where Tritium is located) :)

Xris, sorry to go off topic slightly but just out of interest have you been to the new Forbidden Planet shop just round the corner from the old one? (its just on the edge of Soho forget the exact address)

I was quite suprised by how much stock they had, a nice big Anime and Manga section too :D.

Tritium 2003-12-29 13:54

argh you people, quit making me jealous :p

LBW 2003-12-29 14:02

I wish we had a book off here (like in NY and a few other places in the US), 1 to 3 dollar for used manga but in very good quality, that's just heaven...

ruze 2003-12-29 14:04

In france Mangas are rather easy to get.

I go to Virgin Megastore and FNAC ( big french Media/Culture market ) and sometimes in specialized shops : www.koncy.com.

Prices are reasonable and they always got stuff in stock.

ruze.

LBW 2003-12-29 14:37

Hah, FNAC has the French manga there? I wish they'd stock that here too. XD
But I have 3 good stores for French manga here, I can't complain. x)

I buy it at whichever comic store I'm closest to when I want manga...or amazon.

That said, I read German translated manga so going to the store on the Mariahilferstraße isn't a surprise.

Tritium 2003-12-29 16:30

Yea you're right.. I'm actually glad I know a little French now. ^^';

Kyoji 2003-12-29 17:20

i buy my manga from either Amazon.co.uk, Borders (rarely) or specialist shops around town :D

ruze 2003-12-29 20:58

My bad yes it's www.konci.com.

FNAC has a HUGE collection of Mangas yes , and they can order it if they miss it.

Yeah we can have big mangas for quite low ammount.

One book of I's cost ... 5 euros :) ( 5$ approx )
But one book for Love Hina is 8 euros approx.

It depends who edit the book and the size of it.

We french are amazing fans of Mangas , and particulary Naruto and Love Hina, but we are far to have enough IRL shops.

Buying manga is just a question of time in France tho , because we need to wait a lot for a manga to be translated in french. Get Backers 1 & 2 just went out here :)
