Buying manga in japanese

Post by BetterSense » Mon 01.01.2007 11:38 pm

At the moment I'm following Yotsubato (Azuma Kiyohiko's project after Azumanga Daiou). Yotsubato is easy enough for me to read so I'm not subject to the wrath of ADV. However does anyone know how to find out when volume 7 will be released? Or where I can buy volumes 5&6 domestically?

I've been getting them from Sasuga Japanese Bookstore, but they only have up to volume 5, whereas Amazon.co.jp has up to volume 6, but you take it hard ordering overseas, either in time or money.
I know you believe you understand what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

There's this bookstore that recently closed down that I buy manga at. If you frind the nearest Japanese market or some sort of store, you can find Japanese manga easily.

I think getting manga in Japanese is fun!! AND it's cheaper. XD

You can ask Sasuga Books to carry the later volumes. They did that for me for 史上さいきょうの弟子けんいち (History's Strongest Disciple, Kenichi) when they had volumes 1-16 and 19, but not 17-18.
