Manga trade-in?

Don't know if there's a site online where I can do trade-ins for manga (original Japanese language only) since I bought extra copies in Japan/Singapore by mistake and I need to offload them.

Ebay isn't doing well since the stuff I picked up aren't titles that are known outside of Japan.

I too have several duplicate volumes I accidentally bought throughout the years.
At one point I gave away a stack of them to someone.

Still got some though, and every time I do it I facepalm.

Let me know if you find one. I have a ton of manga I bought about 10 years ago, but my tastes have changed a lot over the years so I'm looking to offload some of them.

Does this happen to most manga buyers? I too have 2-3 duplicate volumes accidentally bought due to brain fart

It didn't use to happen to me. But as the gray matter ages, the number of accidental duplicates rises.

This happens a lot, especially when I forget. I face palm a lot.

Shame that there ain't no book off.

I can list the titles that I accidentally bought duplicates of.

I get most of my duplicates from Amazon. Normally if you've already ordered something, there'll be a message at the top of the page telling you, but sometimes the system forgets, and since I usually preorder stuff months in advance, I won't realize I ordered something twice until I get the shipping notification.

I've never done it with imports, though one time I wasn't paying close enough attention and picked up a Chinese edition by mistake -- and of course it was the first volume of the series, so not only did I have to reorder, but I couldn't read the other books I bought until the new copy arrived.

Looking now for a while, I am certainly out of options in resolving this dilemma.

Amazon + Ebay + patience seems to be the way forward. If they're volume 1s, you could try bundling several together with a more popular title in the same genre. Otherwise I'm plumb outta ideas.
