There isn't anyone like that where I buy manga, thank goodness, but it always helps to read the first few pages of a prospective purchase before buying.

Well, I use my female charm to make them move: always works!


Me (with the "sluttiest" voice I can use): Excuse me, but I want to get a manga from that section.

Douchebag (starring at my chest, or if I'm standing up, or my ass): Hmmm, what did you said?

Me (a bit more louder, but still "slutty"): Please, I wanna get my latest "Shugo Chara" volume, move, please!

Douchebag: *moves with a smile on his face*


fuck you're a slut xD!!!


I know, right?

This has been bothering me for a while. Every time I go to a bookstore to browse through their manga section (which is usually filled with nothing but drivel, incidentally) there are always about five or six kids sitting right in the aisle reading (usually some BS like Bleach). Now, I wouldn't make that big deal about it, if it weren't for the fact that it happens every damn time I go to the bookstore, regardless of which bookstore it is.

Seriously, it's like some freaking epidemic. Oh, and the worst ones, are the inconsiderate little punks who feel the need to sit with their frikkin legs ACROSS THE WHOLE AISLE, and won't even bother to move them, making me step over their lazy asses.

There's also the ones who won't move, even if they're blocking off a section I want to look through. Thankfully, most of them can be kicked out of the way. Unfortunately, there is always the occassional 500-pounder, who absorbs my foot like the freaking blob.

Anyway, I was just wondering if it's like that everywhere in the world, and if it bothers anyone else.


too me, it sounds your the lazy asshole. If you have a problem with them, say "Excuse me". And about the part about stepping over their legs. Your just a lazy ass who complains about the minor detail. I would understand if its about 2-6 people in a row but one person? Come on, you can say something besides complaining about it on the internet. It's not going to change anything if all you do is complain about it on the internet. Your just as lazy as they are for not doing ANYTHING. The type of people I hate most are the ones who complain about something and do the exact same thing that they are complaining about.

Nope. Cause we got 10 chairs at our local Chapters dedicated solely to the manga section. Only the manga section has chairs no where else lol.

It drives me up the wall. I get so pissed off because when i go to the manga/anime section of a store i go to BUY IT, and i don't want to have second hand used up books. Not to mention i can't freaking even look at what i want to buy BECAUSE someone just sits there ass down and won't move. It's ridiculous. The worst ones are the people who pretend they don't freaking see you trying to get to a manga you want to buy. Or they're reading the only copy at the store, but their not going to buy it no they're just going to read it for an hour+ then put it back. IF you want to read manga do it on the computer or buy it don't waste other peoples time.

I agree, i'm not exactly the most outgoing person in the world. But sometimes they'll see you watching them or waiting to get to a book and they just sit there like they have all the time in the world :/

bust out the chain-saw and clear the way lol jk.... for me the manga section at the bookstore is never full, but there is always one or two people who are standing there intensely reading a manga book... it kinda puts on a quiet, weird and awkward atmosphere but then again i rly don't care and i just read my manga lol XD

Interesting comment and observation. As a more mature (read: old bat) manga enthusiast, having to trip over the ten or more teenagers I see camped out in the manga and anime section at Borders or Barnes & Noble is a bit of a bother, but I can understand why they do this. Teenagers, as a rule, are self-centered. I don't mean this in the sense that they are maliciously selfish, just that their brains are wired for immediate gratification and focused on what they are doing at the moment. Once they have the manga they want in hand, most of them simply wnat to enjoy it as quickly as possible. Concern about being an obstruction to other customers doesn't seem to be too high on the priority list. Of course, I see this sort of behavior in the Fantasy and Sci-Fi book sections as well, so the phenomenon isn't limited to the manga section.

There are a few things that the bookstores in question could do to mitigate the problem, such as putting more 'official' seating in areas of the store that teenagers seem to linger (more benches, more comfy chairs, more couches), so that there are more alternatives to parking oneself in an aisle. Expansion of the coffee shops that are usually attached to the bookstores would help as well, and probably sell more frappuchinos. To be fair to the teens that clog the manga aisles, they have moved when I've asked them to, to reach a particular manga, although I've gotten some strange looks. It would seem that a manga reader over the age of 40 is a pretty rare bird.
