The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya 5-11

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan 1-8
Magical Girl Apocalypse 1-5
Trinity Seven 1-3

I picked up Fullmetal Alchemist vol.1-6 today. I never actually got round to finishing the anime...
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: AzraelIshi on March 07, 2016, 09:43:23 pm
Manga:

All volumes of Rurouni Kenshin
Volumes 1-10 of Monster (Will buy the next one soon)
All volumes of Hellsing
Volumes 1-5 Macros 7 Trash (Out of print currently)
Volume 1 of Drifters (I have to import those)
Volume 1 of Daydream (Out of print currently)
All volumes of the Evangelion Manga
Volumes 1-6 of I"s (Don't know if I have the desire to continue buying those)
Volume 1 of BTOOOM! (Replacing daydream until there are more volumes available)
Volumes 1-3 of Hack//UdeDen (Same status as I"s)

LN:
Nothing, I have to import all these from Spain or USA, and I'd be broke fairly quickly if I do that (A single LN volume can cost something around 100 bucks between buying, transport cost and customs, which charges 50% of the total ammount of what you paid, including delivery). I do have a fair ammount of them in my HDD, like the Highschool DxD ones.

Not living in one of the countries (http://www.bookdepository.com/help/topic/HelpId/3/Which-countries-do-you-deliver-to) where Book Depository does free shipping?

Actually, that point is moot right now. This morning, the Argentinian equivalent to the IRS (the AFIP) announced that all the previous limitations and ridiculous taxes that were instated by the last goverment (such as only being able to buy something physical from the exterior 2 times a year, or that 50% tax I mentioned earlier) are lifted from today on. So I guess I'll be starting to buy LN's really soon.

Awesome. It's always good to hear when ridiculous taxes and limitations on people are removed.

Oh, and check out Book Depository anyway. Argentina is on their list for countries with free shipping, the availability and prices are generally very good in my experience, and I usually get what I've ordered within 10 days of the shipping notification emails.

Mike, I know it's a tad late, but does Book Depository normally have some of the rarer books and mangas?

Having Amazon Premium, I normally order through them, but then rarer things sometimes slip by unnoticed. For example, had to order Legend of Galactic Heroes through another store because Amazon didn't have the first novel themselves.

Previously, had through BookWalker, the digital version of:
[Manga]
Amazing Agent Jennifer 1-2 (Complete)
Amazing Agent Luna 1-3
Ga-Rei 1-14 (Complete)
TSUMANUDA Fight Town 1-5
By taking advantage of coupon campaigns that they have every couple of months or so, getting that far only cost effectively just ~60% of the listed prices.

Then as of a few hours ago, I actually somehow went and won this (http://global.bookwalker.jp/info-offers/?adpcnt=7qM_VsdB). :o
So now, I can add these to my list:
Amazing Agent Luna 4-11 (Complete)
MAOYU 1-16
... Still pinching myself, but since they're downloading just fine, it looks real enough! 8)

EDIT:
Whispered Words 1-3 (Complete)
... Doubling up with 80% off coupon to save 2,640 JPY extra on top. *fist pump*

For those who don't mind digital copies, look likes BookWalker (https://global.bookwalker.jp/) (created and run by KADOKAWA, who officially owns 51% of Yen Press since April) finally got around to uploading more Yen Press titles... Except not just a few titles, it looks like they've gone and uploaded most of the entire Yen Press Light Novel and Manga library (or something in the ballpark of 600 volumes) in one go.

Still, unless you really want to immediately snap up a series you've been holding out for, the standard rule for the global version of BookWalker since its reboot has remained the same: Wait for their coupon campaigns that happens every month or two, and you can save quit a lot.

For the most part, me too.

Except I've come to the point of running out of bookshelf space, unless I start mothballing or selling some of the stuff (mostly DVD boxsets I'm unlikely to ever watch again) currently occupying my book shelves. #firstworldproblems

That's what I'm already doing... And still running short on space, lol.

Though regardless, looks like I'd still have to find a way to find space, since I just found out today that most (less than half of the total titles, but basically all of the LN) of the recently uploaded Yen Press titles on the supposedly "Global" BookWalker are available only to US customers, due to licensing restrictions... [insert expletive]

EDIT:
Looks like it works like this,
Yen On Light (https://global.bookwalker.jp/publishers/723/) LN: Region locked
Yen Press (https://global.bookwalker.jp/publishers/724/) Manga: Region locked
Yen Press World (https://global.bookwalker.jp/publishers/817/) Manga: No restrictions

Before the 20th,
Easy chance (almost 100%, given that currently there's just 43 RTs and only a couple of days left) to get yourself 10,000 Yen worth of titles.


... On that note, massively updated my list thanks to my shopping sprees (http://innomenpro.com/forums/index.php/topic,1648.msg73930.html#msg73930) there. But it's genuinely hard to resist when they throw around 40% to 50% discounts like candies every couple of months, and many books works out to costing only 1/3 to 1/4 the price of buying physical copies (though some series I still only buy physical copies of).

So I bought my first two manga Saturday. Overestimated how long it would take me to read them because I finished last night. I bought volume 1 of Non Non Biyori and also volume 1 of Flying Witch (Chito is the best character lol). They're not the first two manga I've read, I also had "borrowed" from the internet Choujin Sentai Jetman: Toki wo Kakete and A Pudgy Girl's Love last year.

Got the latest Sword Art ONline Progressive manga through the post yesterday. Quite happy with it.

How far along are you with Flying Witch. I liked the first one, wondering if it's worth buying more?

I've only got Voume 1 but i've read all the user translated stuff on kissmanga. From what I know, only Volume 1 has been officially translated and released in print.

Oh that's unfortunate, there was an ad in the end of it for volume 2 so I figured there were more that were out.

The official release of volume 1 of the Flying Witch manga was only at the end of last month. From what I can find, volumes 2, 3 and 4 isn't due until June, September, and December (roughly a release every 3 months, if schedule holds up).

Oh I didn't realize it came out so recently, it wasn't in the "new release manga" section at the store. I guess I'll just have to be patient then lol.

Yeah, the ad would have probably been for Volume 2 of the original japanese print.

Over the weekend I bought Non Non Biyori volume 2 and I bought volume 1 of the Konosuba LN.

I'm curious where everybody buys their Manga? I've been going to Barnes&Nobel because I noticed on Amazon the prices are often marked-up a little for Manga, where B&N is at most the published price. Is getting it for the published price fair, or are there retailers that sell at a discount?
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: Duke Rockhopper on April 24, 2017, 05:40:16 pm
There's a company who operate through amazon called The Book Depository. With shipping included, one volume will cost up to half the in-store price. That said, I buy local when I can. Waterstones give me a free 10 on books for every 100 spent, and you'd be surprised how quickly that gets used :P
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: BlackStarLine on April 24, 2017, 11:18:25 pm
I use Wordery. Prices tend to be a lot cheaper than compared to Amazon and ordinary retailers.
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: mikebrand83 on April 25, 2017, 02:37:27 am
I second The Book Depository (https://www.bookdepository.com/) when it comes to purchasing physical copies of books. The free shipping is great, and quite fast, as books usually arrive at my door around just 7 days after the shipping notification email is sent. The prices, even before accounting for free shipping, also tends to be consistently cheaper than other retailers I've looked at.

Though more recently as I've been running short on bookshelf space, other than series where I've already started collecting a while back and want to continue, I've been getting them digitally on BookWalker (http://global.bookwalker.jp/) instead. As they have discounts and coupon giveaways quite often, you can quite often get books for 1/3 or even 1/4 of the price of the physical counterparts.

I just looked up, it said "expected arrival: June 30-July 4" so hopefully that's accurate, but frustrating I went to the book store yesterday and saw it on the shelves there already. Well, at least I paid less than the book store was selling it for lol.

I love the art style for flying witch. It's so simplistic but really nice as well.

Post by: Geocorn on July 02, 2017, 03:16:01 am
I agree, and I've already got 3 and 4 on pre-order.

I wasn't planning on buying anything today, but there was a sale on manga published by Viz, so I bought Dragonball, One Piece, and Kuroko 's Basketball. Was tempted by Deathnote but wasn't sure I'd enjoy it when I already knew how it ends. Also wanted My Hero Academia but they were missing issue one (although it looks like the issue they did have was set in season 2 of the anime so maybe I could have picked it up anyway).
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)

I'm reading Light Novels:

1. Against The Gods
2. Tales of Demons and Gods
3. Emperor's Dominion
4. Martial God Asura
5. martial Word
6. Coiling Dragon
7. Sovereign of the Three Realms

I do recommend these Light Novels to everyone

Those aren't Light Novels, they're CNs; Chinese Novels. They are completely different to LNs.
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: Geocorn on July 07, 2017, 01:11:34 am
what's the difference other than language of origin? ???
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: BlackStarLine on July 07, 2017, 01:38:55 am
Quite a lot actually. CNs focus on cultivation and such which is a common theme througout chinese fantasy literature. Obviously LNs have a much wider genre base, with a lot of different subjects.
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: mikebrand83 on July 07, 2017, 03:16:13 am
Yeah, Chinese (and Korean) web novels with Dragon Ball Z level "cultivation" serial escalation (where each new threat is exponentially more powerful than the last, and the protagonists becomes exponentially more powerful to suit... wash rinse repeat for hundreds or thousands of chapters) tends to be pretty common.

... Of course, given that I used Dragon Ball Z as an example (Bleach is just as applicable), it's obvious that the popular appeal of such serial escalation is hardly alien to Japanese media.


Now the Chinese novel "Quan Zhi Gao Shou" (aka "The King's Avatar"), though. Now that's a MMO/competitive eSport story done right, with consistent setting, characterisation, and believable progression as the protagonist builds up his character and recruit allies. And "Steamed Bun Invasion". God, Steamed Bun is great. ;D

Or the Korean novel "Dungeon Defense", a story of dark intrigue that deconstructs many of your typical isekai tropes, where every major character has backgrounds and motivations that completely overturns the initial impression that you would get based on their usual character archetypes.
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: Marx-93 on July 07, 2017, 05:59:27 am
There's "The Amber Sword too", which if it weren't for a pair of details doesn't even seem to be a Chinese story. Frankly probably the most well written (as in technically: detailed setting, foreshadowing, characters, etc) Chinese webnovel I've read, and it's not even Xianxia. I personally consider it the definitive 'transported into a video-game's world' tied with Dungeon Defence (though both focus on different things).

Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: BlackStarLine on July 07, 2017, 01:13:27 pm
Yeah, there's a few that obviously buck the trend, I'm reading one called Rebirth of the Thief, it's a gaming based one but with a reincarnation twist.

I'll add it to my list of stuff to buy. My coworker also urges me to buy My Hero Academia (I've been watching the anime). My interest was also piqued when Mike was talking about the CNs, I'm curious to check a couple of those out.

I ended up deciding to start Durarara. I'm going into it completely blind.

Oh man I am behind on this X_X
There are probably too many to mention (and certainly too many to remember), but most notably are the LNs I've recently picked up and thoroughly enjoyed:

Bakemonogatari vols. 1 and 2
Kizumonogatari

Got caught up more or less on Attack on Titan: Before The Fall too. Not read the newer ones since buying, but I'm for now sticking with my opinion that this prequel series is far superior to the main one. Worth a look~

I had grabbed a Manga Humble Bundle a few weeks ago that I'm very slowly working my way through. I started with 7 Deadly Sins because I had just finished watching that on Netflix. Then I grabbed the AICO manga when it went on sale, it's digital exclusive (at least in English, not sure if it might be print in Japanese). I think I also added several things to my physical collection since my last post. I have up through Vol 2 of DuRaRaRa, Vol 8 of Non Non Biyori, Vol 3 of Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol 6 of Flying Witch, Vol 3 of NGNL Light Novel, Vol 4 of Konosuba Light Novel. Not all the way through those last two yet.

So this week my Graphic Novel Club is meeting to discuss Barefoot Gen Volume 1. I just finished it and it's really good I highly recommend it. It is about life in Hiroshima during WW2. The main character, Gen, is the son of a man who is against the war. It's autobiographical talking about the hardships people faced in WW2 Japan. The volume ends with the event you'd expect it to end with. Manga fans might be put off, the English version was adapted for a broad audience, so you read left-to-right (and I assume that means the art was modified from the original).
Title: Re: List your Manga! (And Light Novels if you have them!)
Post by: BlackStarLine on September 21, 2018, 07:11:54 pm
It can't really be called a manga if they've switched the reading style... You may as well call it a graphic novel...

Anyway, I've got more books on order.

Sword Art Online 13 & 14
Trinity Seven 13 & 14
Saga of Tanya the Evil 3
Sword Art Online Alternative 1 & 2
