I would end up paying $106($67 books + $39 shipping) which is a lot of money.
Try bk1.

I got 2 light novels for about $23. Yes, that INCLUDES shipping.

And it only took about a two weeks to come to my house.

Anyway, it's better than Amazon.co.jp I think.

Do you happen to know the shipping rate in mangaoh? I'm currently using bk1 for mangas, but they don't have magazines. So I think I'll try mangaoh.

well they there products by EMS so its dependent on the weight
well my most recent order shiped it came to about 3600 yen for shipping that was 2 magazine, and 4 bound comic books,, so if your order like 2-3 magazine I could see shipping being no more than 3,000yen, unles its those thick magaize could be a bit more

Was wondering if anyone knows good stores around the US east coast? Any store that sells manwha are also welcomed.
I only know of 3 stores(JP ones), all in manhattan.
Kinokuniya
Asahiya
Bookoff

EDIT:
Found 2 korean websites that sell manhwa
http://www.aladdin.co.kr/
http://www.kyobobook.co.kr/

I haven't tried them, but when I checked the shipping by going through the checkout... The shipping from kr to us seemed to cost a arm and a leg. Wondering if anyone else has any sites that sell manhwa and shipping doesn't cost a arm and a leg.

EDIT2:
I just read somewhere that aladdin.co.kr gives free shipping for orders above $200. Could anyone confirm for me?
Thanks.

Hi guys, lately I've been searching for a good site that sells manga and has cheap shipping to Canada, and while searching google, I found this site: http://www.bestmangabooks.com/ (english manga only though). Has anyone tried buying from this site before? The shipping and manga prices seem very cheap, imo. So, I was wondering if they are reliable.

Possible to purchase subscriptions of Japanese Lang Manga Mags for US Delivery?

Is it possible to purchase a one-year subscription to Dengeki Daioh or Doki! (or preferably both) through some store? I don't mind prepaying for a year's worth of issues, just would like to not have to remember to log in every month and possibly miss out if they sell out.

If you're looking for Hanbun in English, I don't think it's been licensed. According to Wikipedia it's out in Chinese and Korean, but I don't know where to get those editions. You can get the originals from bk1, Kinokuniya, or other places.

If nothing turns up when you Google, then most likely it's not available in English. Generally if something's been licensed, it'll turn up on Amazon and other places. Keep in mind that relatively few light novels have been licensed. The fan-translated ones are all at Baka-Tsuki.

Dr Masterbooks in problems??

Does anyone know what's the deal? I mean the releasedate has been passed a few weeks for Purgatory Kabuki Volume. 2 but it is still not in stock, at all the retailers. I tried to mail them and ask when they do come in stock... but I get no reply from them.

Also the main page is not updated any more?
