Japanese manga in the US?

Post by shippai » Wed 05.07.2008 1:39 pm

Well, I'm new to comics in general, but I wanted to pick up something in Japanese to improve my reading skills. I looked over in the TJP shop and saw a few titles, but those didn't really interest me.

Does anybody know of websites that deal manga in Japanese to the US? Specifically, any US-based sites? I could buy something directly from Japan, but I'm a little scared of the shipping costs.

Thanks. Both sites are great, but it looks like Sasuga books has slightly cheaper prices.
