No.. outside of subscribing to the magazine that might be running a series one chapter at a time.

I don't really understand the value of such a thing... why buy only a chapter at a time? Japanese manga volumes run about 300-600 yen and english ones run about $10 (or a sack of returnable cans).... ....

Try Chinese?

Read Chinese then. I am assuming you are a local there. Its pretty cheap in Singapore and helps to brush up your Chinese too. $5 sing dollars, approx US $3 a book and they are out as fast as they come. Good quality too unless you wanna compare with original Jap manga. I guess they cater to the local market. Surely there isn't cheap russian translated manga over in the states either.

I can even get the latest manga at US$1 (approx after conversion) and I could tell you where if you are interested. Sure the quality is not the best but its more than passable. I usually buy an entire series when I make the purchase. Its in Chinese though.

If you really need english translated ones, you can try the library. I got my Gunslinger girl Vol.1 - 3 there.

My recommendations for UK residents:
http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/
Amazon Marketplace:
Buy from: aphrohead_books (http://www.aphrohead.co.uk/)

I've ordered from these 2 suppliers and received excellent speed and service. Queries are answered quickly, fast delivery and fair prices. Avoid caiman_usa on marketplace, their positive feedback is deceptive as a lot of the orders are fulfilled late or just refunded, they appear to be selling books they don't have in stock which immediately throws them off the "dispatch within 2 days" period.

Also recommending to europeans in general:

Delivery to the UK took 7 days (5 working days), which is perfectly acceptable.

I did a cursory glance and didn't see www.fujisan.com - I used to buy import manga from them often and had my BetsuFure and Japanese Shonen Jump subscription through them and never had a problem, so I reccomend them for import manga...

They seem to be OK, I've bought DVDs and manga from them before with no problems.

Another online store that I haven't seen mentioned is Book Closeouts; they don't have a specific manga section (their "comics & graphic novels" is mostly American comics) so you'll have to do specific title, ISBN or publisher searches. Right now they seem to have a lot of older Tokyopop manga for $3.99 each.

Bookoff in Hartsdale NY closing!

I just found out the BookOff in Hartsdale, NY (Westchester County) is closing on 08/31/2007; all books and manga are 30% off, CDs (and DVDs I think) are at least 10% off. They have a small selection of English-translated manga and other books as well.

Picked up a lot of manga and DVDs there over the years; I'll miss it. The store in Manhattan isn't closing, but it's too hard for me to get to.
