Where to buy novel?

Not sure if this is the right thread, so I apologize if it's not.

I want to buy the chinese/taiwanese novels for 12 kingdoms, Saiunkoku Monogatari, and the ocean waves. Could anyone suggest some sites that sales them?

A reliable source for manga in North America (Canada)?

Hey,

I was wondering if anybody knew any reliable online stores to purchase manga off of in North America...Canada preferrably. Cheap shipping and decent customer service are a plus.

Thanks!

I want to buy something off of Amazon.jp but I live in the US and I don't know how to navigate the site since it's all in Japanese. Is there a website somewhere that has translation and a step-by-step guide to walking people through shopping on Amazon.jp?

Webshops

Hi,

I live in Norway in Europe I don't have good selection of manga in my local store. Is there any good mangawebshops at the net? And if there are, do they send their items to Europe?

I know about their main site, like Tokyopop and so on. But are there any shops which have every title from various companies.


Hope for some answers.
Thanks!

It's surprisingly hard to find any sort of tutorial. Unfortunately, the my favourite one was removed for some reason, but I found this nice guide: http://www.sailordream.com/PGSM/Guides/AmazonJapan.php It's geared towards Sailormoon items, but it can be used for ordering anything.

I am in singapore, and want to get the tsukihime manga volumes. However all the ones i can seem to find only ship in america, or have outrageous international shipping costs, or are in japanese/chinese.

Does anyone know a online store that sells english manga in singapore? Or hell, english versions of the tsukihime manga that ship to singapore?

they always ship within 2 days, and I ALWAYS get it within 5 working days.
They also have imports, and an extremely wide variety of domestic.

I have NEVER been disapointed by them.
They take Paypal, Credit card, and you can even mail it to them!

I do not work for these people, I'm just a customer
Oh yeah, And they have Pocky!

Oops, gotta edit.. All their manga is 30% off, and the anime is discounted as well. AND they have weekly specials, like 40% off ADV week, or 30% off import week.. They rule!

Enjoy!

Is this in USA? It looks good. Howeverm I live in norway so I'm kinda scared of the shipping fee. .. .

Their selection of "import" DVDs are a known source of bootlegs so the recommendation is not to buy from them. Don't know about the manga since it's not so practical to create bootleg manga.

I have always used Barnes and Noble, Amazon, even ebay a few times and they have worked very well for me. I have also googled small locations or shops around my area to see if they sell manga/anime: that went fairly well though it wasn't as great as I thought! There are just not that many small shops geared towards this genre. Thats a pitty!

You might just need to bump your entire question once a week or so. I don't recall any recommendations for local singapore purchasing.. but you're certainly close to japan so the shipping rates for japanese manga can't be that bad if you bundle up your orders into one shipment (assuming you can read japanese).
I use a combination of www.amazon.co.jp and nippon-export.com for my JP manga purchases (I live in the US). For Region 2 anime&music, I tend to use cdjapan.co.jp and couple of others.
